Good morning friends!
I hope your day has started off well, it is Friday :)
With the buzz about the new year still humming over on the blog [you can see my intentions for the New Year *here*], I thought today I'd post the five beauty trips I hope to master sometimes this year.
I'm not a beauty guru by any stretch of the imagination, but I do enjoy playing with makeup and hair styles just for fun. I've learned a lot about beauty from different blogs [PinkLouLous being my mecca ;)] and now I've begun perusing Pinterest for makeup and hairstyles as well.
Here are five I hope to master this year :)!
1] Makeup contouring - I've seen many posts, pictures and pins on makeup contouring and what a difference it can make with make-up. It truly is incredible. It looks intimidating, but with the right amount of practice and a good tutorial, I'm confident it will be something worthwhile.
2] The cat eye - Is there anything more elegant than a lovely cat eye? One can wear it a la Adele or add a pop of color as the picture below. I've seen many tutorials on pinterest, but have yet to truly try them out. I'm hopeful that the liquid liner pen I use might make the learning a bit easier.
3] Vintage hair/curls - I've mentioned before how much I adore the 40s and all things vintage from that era. While many of the hairstyles from that time are a quite intricate, the 'vintage curls' look appears to be something that I could master, someday. I just need to find those awesome metal clips.
4] Red lipstick - Talk about a quick bit of sophistication. If done right, a red lip can make any lady look extra polished and feminine. It can be tricky to find 'the right' shade and to avoid looking 'overdone', but with a bit of research and practice I think I can find a hue and style that is perfect for me.
5] French tips of any kind - A French manicure seems to be in one minute and out the next, but the skill of learning to just paint the tips of nails, equally, still seems like an important beauty talent to master. I rather like the glitter tips of the picture below and will probably try it sometime this month, just for fun.
Well, there we are, five beauty tricks to master in a year, not to crazy right?!?
An tips or hints regarding my five?
Are there any tricks you are looking to master?
