Beauty How-to

2 6894

On the heels of the highly anticipated Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in London last week, I have decided to do a quick tutorial on how to get the coveted hair and makeup straight from the runway. Head makeup artist Dick Page created a classic Bombshell look with a light smokey eye, and hair master Akki Shirakawa created the beautiful lived-in waves every girl wishes for. Here is my interpretation of the look and how you can master it too!

Makeup!

I started with a layer of MAC Studio Fix Foundation (NC44) along with some MAC Prolongwear concealer in (NW25) under my eyes, and around my nose. On my eyebrows I used MAC Eyebrow Pencil in Spiked.

For lips I used MAC Spice to line the lips as well as color in the corners. I added OCC Lip tar in Trollop and blended it in with the liner, then topped it off with some CHANEL Rouge Allure Gloss in Sensuel for pinky nude pout.

and now for the hair! For a more in depth hair tutorial click here!

I am starting with hair that has been rough dryed with a mousse. Clip up the crown, then split the bottom section in half. Prep the hair with a light spray.

Using a 1 inch curling iron or wand, wrap chunks of hair around the iron in random directions., leaving the ends loose.

Continue for the entire head, and flip the hair and finger through the curls.

Mermaid beach waves how to

Being a Florida girl I am naturally obsessed with all things beach, and of course mermaids. They always have the best sea salt infused, undone beach waves with just the right amount of messiness. Here is what I have found to be the easiest way to get perfect mermaid hair!

Step 1: Prep clean hair with a beach spray/salt spray to give the hair some “grit”. This will mimic the natural texture that you achieve after a day in the ocean, and will help super silky strands actually hold. I love to use NYM Sea Salt Spray. After you have applied the product evenly, (don’t soak the hair, just enough to make it damp) rough blow dry your strands until bone dry.

Step 2:  Section the hair. I love to do a middle part when I do mermaid waves, adding the the bohemian-like feel. I clip up the entire crown section of my hair, then split that into two even sections.

Step 3: Using a 1 inch wand curling iron, I take chunks of hair and twist/wrap them around leaving the ends out. If you don’t have a wand just use a regular curling iron, and don’t use the clip. Release the curl and pull the end of the curl to stretch it out. This will loosen the curl and give you a perfect “un-done” wave. I like to do alternating directions as well (some away from the face, some curling towards the face) This technique will give you a more piece-y look.

Step 4: Flip the hair and run your fingers through from the roots to the ends to separate the curls.

Step 5: Use a finishing texturizing spray, my favorite is Oribe Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray, to give the waves texture and shine.

*PS! This stuff smells amazing! So much so that Oribe made a perfume because so many people liked it!
