The Hair Chronicles Vol I

Hey guys! I figured I'd share with you all some of the hair I've been doing in school over the past few months. If you follow me on instagram (which you should!) you've seen all these pictures before. However, I hope you guys still enjoy it! Some are before and afters and some are just afters but I figured I'd try and make this a monthly thing so I can share with you all my hair work! These are all iphone photos so I know the quality isn't what you guys are used to on my blog but bear with me!


This is a before and after of my aunt's hair. We did her color the first time and loved it but she wanted to go a little big lighter for summer. We added in a lot of balyage throughout with face framing pieces in the front (which you obviously can't see :(  unfortunately)

Red Velvet // Makeup

Hi guys! Today I have a simple makeup look I did the other day.. or to be more accurate, two days in a row. Little secret of mine, I tend to recycle makeup looks I like, I do it a lot! I mentioned before that I often pair a lipstick with a cat eye because it's quick and easy yet still pulled together.

Well, I was going to opt for a bright red matte however I pulled out my Michael Marcus lip liner in Red Velvet instead (which I'd only ever worn as a lip liner before) and I loved the way the color looked as a lipstick. The formula of this lip liner is creamy but matte and so gorgeous! Even better, the lip liner lasted forever and I only needed to touch it up after I ate. Oh, and another plus, the color left no staining like some super pigmented matte lipsticks do.

Contrasting Tones // Makeup





Hey everyone!!! Today I have a simple makeup look I did the other week. I've been trying to take pictures of my makeup before school if it varies somewhat from my typical, boring-everyday-makeup;. I'm hoping that'll provide me with a lot more content for you guys!

Shameless // Makeup

Hey guys!! Today I have a Lip of the Day type post for you! I've been wearing a lot of lipsticks with cat eye combos because they're so simple but still put together. I'm not exactly a morning person so even putting on mascara before school can be a chore for me so I try and keep my makeup routine pretty quick for the most part!



I used Xtreme Lashes Glide Eyeliner in Black Pearl on the outside and Revlon Matte Balm in Shameless towards the inside of my lips. If you guys want a tutorial lemme' know!! :D
