Bear Ear Hairstyle Instructions:
Hello!
Time for another hair tutorial.
Today I’m doing something a little bit different.
This style is pretty out there but also pretty versatile.
I’ve seen some people calling it Minnie Mouse ears, others calling it bear ears, others calling it big double bun ear thing… ok that one was just me but that’s not the point.
Either way let’s get started.
First off, separate you hair into two sections and pin away your fringe.
So tie you hair up into really high ponytails like this.
The higher they are, the higher your ears will eventually be.
I find that this style is easiest to do if you’ve already straightened your hair first.
Straightened hair is just easier to get to sit the way that this hairstyle needs to.
These ears we want to be really big.
So once you hair your hair in the ponytails, pull them upwards and then tease around the base.
The teasing is what’s going to keep it all together eventually so you won’t have any weird gaps.
When I fold it like this you can see what I mean.
Without the teasing it would still work but it can be a lot harder to get a completely even gap free finish.
But if you do prefer not to tease your hair it’s definitely still possible.
After you’ve done the teasing give it a quick blast of hairspray to set and then grab another hair band.
Pull it over the ponytail and again depending on how stretchy your hair tie is.
Then only pull the ponytail half way through so you’ve got a big poufy bit sticking up now.
Grab the end of the ponytail and wrap it around the base.
What you’re doing here is obscuring the band.
Of course the ends of my hair are pink so it just makes it more obvious but if your hair is all one colour it works a lot better.
Fluff out the loop that you’ve got.
You can see because it’s teased it all stays together.
Fluff it out and pull the hair right around to the middle so it’s covering the band and forming a complete circle.
Then just pin it in place.
Now you just need to repeat on the other side. Tease at the base, hairspray, use a hair tie to form a loop.
Wrap the ends of the hair around to hide it.
Pull it around so it forms a huge bun and pin as many times as you need to.
Pretty cute!
As far as bear ears go, there are actually two versions of this.
A huge puffy one like this and a little one which is a little less crazy.
So if you want me to do a tutorial on that version let me know in the comments.
Once you’re all done with that all you need to do is give the whole thing another spray with hairspray.
Maybe add some cute little accessories and if you’ve got a fringe just style it as you would normally.
All done!
And pretty damn cute if I do say so myself.
That’s one gigantic puffy ear of some kind!
Lottie was super annoyed that I stole her favorite toy for filming this tutorial so she had to come and let you know what I jerk I was.
Here’s a very public apology, I’m sorry Lottie… I’m not really.
So whether you’re using this as bear ears, Minnie Mouse ears, I don’t know, squirrel ears or just big cute poufy buns, it’s really easy to do.
Hope you guys enjoyed this video, make sure you check out the blog post linked in the description for heaps more tutorials and if you enjoyed this video don’t forget to subscribe, like, comment, favorite or whatever you want to do.
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.

How To Do Lady Rainicorn Nail Art – Adventure Time Tutorial

How To Make Glitter Sole Shoes- Craft Tutorial

I’ve done several glitter shoe tutorials before but this one has been on my list for quite some time. I love the look of shoes with brightly coloured soles so glitter is the perfect way to highlight that even more. For anyone who was wondering, the shoes are from DreamV and they are SUPER uncomfortable!

The trick to this version not requiring a top coat of anything is the kind of glue used. I use wash n wear fabric glue but any non-water soluble fabric glue will work fine. If you decide to use a PVA or regular white craft glue keep in mind that they are only going to be water resistant, not water proof. You will also need to top coat with more glue in that case as they are weaker glues. There’s a tutorial for how to glitter sneakers that way over here. 

This is the first craft video we’ve shot using the DLSR and I’m really happy with the new set up so far, it was a lot more work so if you enjoyed it share it and let me know! Now I’m just waiting for my new lights to get here so I can do even more things like this without needing to wait for the sun! 😀
