The Great Gatsby Inspired Hair/Make Up – 1920’s In 20 Minutes

This is such a fun look and really doesn’t take too long to do! I had way too much fun making this video including doing the Charleston for far longer than I actually included in the video XD

Hope you enjoyed it!

Transcript:
Today I was a bit inspired by the remake of The Great Gatsby so I wanted to do a look suited to that. Neither my look or the looks in the movie are particularly accurate for the time period but they sure are fun!

The Great Gatsby Inspired Hair/Make Up Instructions:

Hello, today we’re going to have some fun with a look inspired by the new Great Gatsby movie!
Hey besties! Hmm, that 20’s theme party is in 20 minutes! How can I get ready in time?
I’ve got it!
A cute hat and fake finger waves!
I’m a freaking genius!
Ok, let’s get started!
Separate your fringe and curl it under using whatever method you’re comfortable with.
Part your hair in the middle and then separate a piece of hair on the side.
Brush it around so it forms a wave that finishes just above your ear, then pin it in place!
Using the same section of hair, form a second wave that finished behind your ear like this. Then pin it in place!
Repeat on the other side.
Form a wave that finishes just above your ear, then pin it in place.
My hair was already curled for this but you can do this look with straight or curly hair.
This version is a way to quickly cheat at making finger waves if you have a hat handy.
A hat can cover anything!
Once you reach the back, fold all the remaining hair up and pin it to the top of your head.
This style does work better with shorter hair.
Make sure that all your pins are above the level of your hat line.
Now smooth it all down with some hairspray. You cant have a 20’s look with fly-aways!
This looks alright but just wait until you add a hat!
BAM! Super cute! And that’s how you do super quick/easy/lazy almost finger waves.
Now you just need to top off the look with some make up.
Obviously if this was a real 1920’s look you would start from scratch but this was for a last minute costume party.
The key to 20’s eye shadow is to create a darker line around your crease.
Then a darker line around your lash line as well.
Line your waterline in black and bring some of the shadow down to soften it up a little.
You don’t want a sharp wing, you’re aiming for a rounder shape.
Use lots of mascara on your top and bottom lashes.
These looks are quite bottom lash heavy and that’s how you get that doe-eyed look that was so popular back then.
Add a darker shade of lipstick and that’s it!
Now you’re ready to look out a window pining for your lost love.
Now charleston your way all over that dance floor!
I hope you guys enjoyed the tutorial. Check the link in the description for more photos and other tutorials!

A Hiatus

Morning everyone!

Just a quick note to let you know about my absence. I’ve been gone from this section of the blog for quite a while sorry!

Recently my life and schedule has changed to include a lot of new things including more travel, a possible big move and of course my lovely little puppy Lottie. With this year up in the air I’m reorganising my life both online and offline. I am going to concentrate on what I’m good at and do more things that make me happy.

So what does that mean?

I most likely won’t be posting here for a while longer. I may return again later this year but at the moment I just don’t have the time or motivation to review products in this format. Ironically I’ve just started hitting pan on a lot of products I had wanted to review XD

I have been toying with the idea of doing product reviews on my Youtube channel and if I do I’ll be sure to post them here too for you. Either way, I will be updating my terms, conditions and PR information to reflect everything as soon as I have finalised exactly what I want to do.

In the mean time please come and find me over here:

How To Use Pastels For Temporary Hair Colour
Hope you’re having a good day it’s time for another hair tutorial.
Have you ever wondered how you could get temporary, bright, cute hair colours without having to worry about the commitment?
Oh my god I sound like an informercial.
Well there are several ways to do it but my favorite answer is using soft art pastels.
Please don’t use oil pastels for this. Oil pastels and soft pastels are not the same thing.
Soft pastels have a chalky feeling where as oil pastels are obviously really oily.
So you’re not going to get the same effect.
The pastels I’m using are from Daiso and they were $2.80.
The hardest thing about this tutorial is picking the colour.
For the actual technique, all you need to do is separate the hair you want to colour.
Put a piece of cardboard or paper under it to protect the hair underneath.
And draw the pastel on.
You can make it as bright as you want just by drawing more on. Super easy!
Before you ask, yes it does work on dark hair.
If you have dark hair you may need to apply a bit more to get the colour as bright.
Keep in mind also that artists pastels come in different grades so make sure to look for a soft pastel that is really pigmented.
Don’t forget to do the underneath and the ends as well.
So far I haven’t experienced any damage using this technique on myself or others.
If you are concerned or you’ve had hair damage in the past, I would always suggest that you go to a hairstylist and get them to look over your hair first just in case.
Once you are finished with the colour, add some hair spray to seal it in.
Then just brush it through with the rest of the hair and you’re good to go.
Afterwards you can just shampoo your hair and get rid of the colour completely.
It’s a great way to have crazy colours on the weekend if you’re working in an office or still going to school with strict dress codes.
Now that I’ve tried it with some different pinks, I think I want to try it with blues and purples.
I think that would be super cute.
I hope this was a useful video, good luck if you give it a try.
Make sure you check out the blog post linked in the description, there’s a photo tutorial there you can download as well.
And thanks so much for watching, bye!

I’m Perfection Speckled Eyeliner – Illamasqua Transformation

I’m still catching up from our weekend in Canberra so I thought it would be nice to kick off the week with a video of a Transformation I took part in for Illamasqua’s new collection. I was invited last week so I could have a look through the new collection I’MPERFECTION. The premise of this collection is to celebrate all of the things we generally try to hide as imperfections.

Here is the video we made of the day, hope you enjoy!

I could really see myself wearing the speckle eyeliner again and there’s an extremely neat 1960’s style look using the b/w combination in the brochure which I want to recreate.

Neutral Eye Make Up Instructions!
It’s time for another edition of Morning Make Up where I do my make up and we chat!
And today we’re doing something a little bit different, well different for me anyway: Neutrals!
These are the products and brushes that I’m using today.
Starting of course, with your regular foundation routine.
Today I wore a bronze neutral look so let’s get started!
Clip your hair back. There’s a tutorial on my blog on how to make this particular little velcro clippy.
Apply a nice thick coat of mascara.
Those of you who are observant will probably notice that things are a little bit different in this video.
But let’s get to the make up first.
I’m using a white shimmer pencil just as a highlighter under the brows then smudging it out with a finger.
Then I’m just going to seal it in with a little bit of white shadow.
So what do you guys think of the new set up?
Now that I’ve given the whole house a make over, it seemed a shame not to use it!
I’m giving the whole lid a wash with some light gold shadow here to act as a base for all of the other shadows.
So I’m ditching the backdrop for now and we’re going to try some more tutorials here.
This set up is definitely a little bit different from my old one but hopefully it’s an improvement!
Next I’m using some darker bronze just to give some depth to the outer corner.
I’m applying it in a pointed “C” shape.
