hair & makeup


My hair and I have a love/hate relationship. I couldn't imagine myself without long locks, but the upkeep is sometimes a little much. Almost every day I end up with it piled on the top of my head in a bun, held together by bobby pins and tied with a ribbon. The weather has been drizzly and miserable lately, resulting in outbursts of frizz and untameable waves in my hair. When this kind of thing comes around I take bits and pin them to the back of my head, leaving accidental chunks of hair out, bumps and the occasional strand that sticks up on end. I call it "haphazardly pretty".
Makeup is a different story. I am gradually getting better at applying it and learning about it but I need to step out of my comfort zone a little. Two of favourite "not just concealer-and-mascara" looks are the bright lip and the winged eyeliner. MAC lipsticks are my new loves (Cremecup and Sandy B are personal favourites) and my Covergirl eyeliner is like the perfect felt-tip pen. I learnt how to apply winged eyeliner here!
Thanks for all the questions you lovely people have been asking me. Don't be afraid to ask more- I'm gradually answering them! Hope you enjoyed my out-of-my-comfort-zone hair & makeup look. You should try it; being "haphazardly pretty" is fun!

hahha this may sound slightly weird but I am so jealous of how girls in Australia can just throw their hair up into a messy bun/ponytail and still look good, I went there last july and I was just so jealous.. I look like a total bum with my hair up hahaha. love the idea of being "haphazardly pretty"

Man, I love your hair! And its cute when its up:) I dunno, its just so shiny and it looks so soft (haha, I'm not the best describer of hair). And you'll get there with the makeup, it just takes practice! And watching beauty videos on YouTube doesn't hurt either...:)

Yeah, I know how you feel about the hair. Mine is about the same length as yours, and is forever getting tangled. However, I always want it longeeer.
You look very cute! Hope to see some more posts soon!

That first picture is so sweet! Your makeup looks very nice-- I too, need to learn, before I attempt to apply it and completely embarrass myself.

That is a beautiful messy style. I still haven't mastered the messy bun yet.
