Back to School: Hair!

¡Hola! Ladies! So that I’ve been MIA for a while! But anyway I’m back now! For August I’m going to be doing a Back to School series. It’s going to include make-up looks, outfits, hair styles and school essentials! Todays will be hairstyles.
1. Fishtail or Fishbone braid. This is really very simple and ends up looking very intricate and beautiful. Basically you separate your hair into two pieces then take a small piece of hair from one side and carry it over to the other side. Then do the same with the other side and repeat until you reach the end. If you want a more polished plait pull it tighter, if you want a messy look pull it lightly! If should end up looking something like this!

2.Messy Bun. The messy bun is incredibly easy to perfect and leaves you this cute and effortless look! You basically put your hair in a ponytail at the tape of your neck, then coil your pony tail around the bobbin and pin the ends into your head! Pull little strands of hair down around your face to frame it! It should end up looking similar to this!

3.High-pony . The high-pony tail is such a classic , easy look. It’s pretty self explanatory! Curl the ends or add a bow to make it cuter!

4.Bow. This is a dainty, sweet, pretty , basic look. Just add a bow! American Apparel and Claires do cute ones!

Love you to the moon and back!

Review!

¡Hola! So sorry I haven’t uploaded a post lately, I’ve been writing them but because my internet hates me I haven’t been able to upload them! Today’s post is going to be a review of my top 3 fave mascaras!

1.Maybelline’s The Falsies mascara. This mascara is such an amazing product and if you need more proof then me just talking about it here then type it into YouTube and watch the hundreds of videos of beauty gurus raving about it! This mascara is really does make your lashes look fake. It gives your lashes so much volume and makes them super fluttery. It really is an all-round great mascara and to make it even better it’s dirt cheap!
Rate: 5 out of 5!

20130722-105811.jpg

2.Benefit’s They’re Real mascara. This mascara has received alot of hype and for the most part it lives up to that. The only downfall of this mascara is a personal opinion of mine! I’m not plastic applicators biggest fan but I actually really liked this one. This mascara gets every single lash lovely and long and full of volume! The only reason I prefer Maybelline’s The Falsies is because The Falsies has a brush applicator and not a plastic one! 4 out of 5!

20130722-190420.jpg

3.Maybelline’s The Rocket mascara. Again everyone raved about this mascara at one stage and I was defiantly was one of them. This mascara claims not to clump but I find that not to be true! This mascara gives you great volume but falls because of the clumping! Rate:.5 out of 5!

What would be your top 3 mascara? I’d love to know I need to try a dew more out,
Stay Stunning!

Holly Willoughby

¡Hola! Ladies todays post is dedicated to the most poised, graceful and simply beautiful woman on British Tv, know who I’m talking about?… Holly Willoughby of coarse!!! This post is going to be all about her fashion, beauty and hair! I’ll have 9 outfits to show you, 3 of her beauty/hair looks and how to get them!

Fashion:

20130709-222830.jpg
Looking stunning here beside Philip Schofield . Wearing this gorgeous dress that is both flattering and basic. This dress fits beautifully, cinching in her waist and also falling at the perfect length, it was the perfect choice. The basic pattern and pale colouring is cleverly paired with deep purple heeled shoes. Stunning!

20130709-234343.jpg
This is such a classy look. Her fun pencil skirt shows off her slim waist and accentuates her legs beautifully. Her top defines her shoulders making them look perfectly feminine and also hides any lumps and bumps she may want to go unnoticed(although I doubt she has any!).

20130710-100644.jpg
This dress is stunning! I need haha! The figure hugging dress makes the best of her beautiful figure but is cut at the right length to give the illusion on longer legs! The chiffon material and the peter pan collar pulls it all together and makes it very ‘in’.

20130710-101337.jpg
This is defiantly a more casual look but equally as lovely. Pairing the skinny jeans with the ballet flats was a clever idea because it sets the tone for the whole look and therefore allows the big jacket to make the outfit even more trendy!

20130710-101900.jpg
This look defiantly showcases Hollies ‘mommy’ side! Pairing her skinny jeans with this floaty top is a good way too hide your butt if you’d like too! The this loose tweed blazer helps neutralise the barbie pink top and makes it more wearable.

20130710-102541.jpg
I really do like this look because it showcases the extremes of the British weather. Wearing this gorgeous fitting,ruby, lace dress paired with the black tights and coat(because if she didn’t she would freeze!). Accessorised with a black Chanel purse and as a great pop of colour these cheetah t-bar shoes.

20130710-102959.jpg
Again another mommy look! This beautiful patterned dress(long top) over the jeans sets the canvas for an ultra casual outfit, while tying it in with the black blazer and black heeled pumps. Then again a brown bag to neutralise the whole look!

20130710-103417.jpg
Here with beautiful son Harry( who has clearly inherited mom’s sense of style).

20130710-103658.jpg
Another mommy look here showcasing a beautiful deep blue lace dress with a white lace peter pan collar! Paired with black tights and black combat boots to toughen up the look!

Beauty:

20130710-104037.jpg
1. You need to get a perfect canvas. That does not mean to cake on the foundation. Try using foundation, conclear, pressed powder. Put light blush and bronzer on if you’d like a dewy complexion.
2. Mild smoky eyes. This is easier if you have a kit. I like benefit ‘s Smokin’ Eyes kit.
3. A plain lip. Go for a nude or baby pink lipstick or just go really simple and use clear lipgloss.
4. Windswept hair with ALOT of volume. Take this picture to the hair salon or try blow-drying your hair upside down and invest in a moose or any other hair product to create texture.

20130710-104931.jpg
1. Fill in the brows. Holly’s eyebrows in this are totally perfect! Make sure that your eyebrow pencil matches the hair colour!
2. Try some airy fairy eyeshadows. Light,delicate,pale colours! If you have brown eyes try lavender or pale blue colours and if you have green/blue eyes try pale orange, pink or red eyeshadows.
3. Pale pink cheeks. You need to create a healthy glow so use pink bushes and some highlighter.
4. Messy waves with a braid on the side! Create the messy textured hair by sleeping with your hair in braids or by using a hot hair tool. Babyliss beach maker is my favourite one.

20130710-105927.jpg
1. Bright lips!!! Try a barbie doll pink or a bright red colour!!
2. Neutral eyes. Using the colours above to match your eye colour!
3. Again create the perfect canvas!!
4. Curly hair! Try use a GHD or a curling wand. Again I like the Babyliss one!

What do you guys think of Holly’s style?
Have a wonderful day!
Stay Stunning,
xoxo ~ A

Note: On a more serious note you may or may not know this
but British investigators believe that they are close to finding Madeleine Mccann(a little British girl who went missing on holiday 7 year ago) and they believe that there is a good chance she may be alive so I’d ask all of you to keep her and her family in your prayers!xx

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen!

¡Hola! Ladies they’ve been famous since they came out of diapers, yes I’m talking about the one and only Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen!
They are one of the BIGGEST icons in the fashion world. They always look incredible and I’m going to show you how to get there style!

20130618-120820.jpg
To achieve this effortless, chic look go for loose ,beachy waves, oversized, loosely tailored , slouchy knit cardigans and an over the top , chic dress underneath!

20130618-121053.jpg
To get this casual but busy look. Use as many accessorises you possible can!!! Even here you can see that the Olsen twins are controlling the knit trend!

20130618-121414.jpg
To get this look just go overboard on the leather and studs but even them out together and go for the darker colours to create an edger look.
