Purple Pills

One of the hot trends for the last couple of seasons is bright colored hair, and I have a feeling it's here to stay. I wanted to do a few funky tutorials which involved bright colored hair, but found it difficult considering I myself don't have bright colored hair anymore ( sometimes I miss the red! ). But alas, the lovely Tory was kind enough to model for me and we whipped together a few videos.

First off we have a lovely everyday modern pin-up look with some bright purple brows. It's a pretty simple tutorial, and the brows can be done with any color even natural tones. Check out some of the products I used in the video down below, and don't forget to watch the tutorial!

Spring Forward

Hello Lovelies, I've been going crazy the last few weeks getting things prepared for a video shot, so I haven't had much time to blog. Probably the lamest excuse, but it's all I got right now. Luckily for me the beautiful Vicki and Audrey have been kind enough to model for a few of my beauty tutorials. If you follow my channel you'll have recognized stunning blue-eyed Vicki. You haven't met Audrey yet, but she will be making an appearance in a celebrity inspired video next week, so stay tune for that. 

Now it hasn't quite gotten warm enough here in Canada, actually it still very much feels like Winter. But I decided the hell with it, it's time to get some Spring inspired makeup tutorials out. Plus, we can all use a little sun in our makeup routine. 

Lilacs, pinks, and cobalt blues are Spring's season colors. I for one find this incredibly exciting as all these colors look flattering on everyone. Down below you'll find the lovely Vicki sporting a wearable day look that's easy enough for anyone to achieve. If you need a little more help, make sure to click on my video down below to get the step-by-step on how to get this fresh spring look.

How To: Sock Bun/Sock Bun with Extension

Here's a quick video on how to do the infamous sock bun. Sock buns are super easy to do, and very cute. I've noticed lots of girls walking around with this hair do, and figured it must be simple. After searching a few pictures on Pinterest, I found that these two tutorials are the easiest ways to achieve the beloved sock bun. It's great for those days when you're on day 2 hair, and you don't feel like doing much to your precious locks. Also for you long haired girls, don't fret I go into detail on how to achieve the look with hair extensions. 

Take care.

Tutorial: Anne Hathaway Glamour Magazine January 2013

Since it's a new year, I've decided to set some productive goals for myself. One of them being, creating more interesting content for my subscribers on YouTube. I've started to film a segment called "Mag Covers" involving fashion magazine covers, where I then re-create the celebrity makeup look. I'm starting off by choosing two covers from different magazines, one North American and another from the UK. If I get good feed back I will definitely explore other continents for sure. I'm not really looking for anything specific as far as what will entice me to do a look. Usually if it's a look that will challenge me creatively, I'll feel inclined to re-create it.

Now that the whole concept has been explained let's move on to the fun. This month's Mag Cover is US Glamour Magazine, and the lovely lady gracing the cover is the beloved Princess Diaries, Anne Hathaway. I love Anne, she's classy and fresh. Her look always looks impeccable and one thing that stood out in this cover is how different she looks compared to other times I've seen her in media. She has this fun, playful, edge and I instantly wanted this cover to be the first of the Mag Cover series. Hope you all enjoy!
