Yes I'll admit it I'm under the "beehive" spell. I've been wearing it with almost every hairstyle but in a much more modern, playful way. If you think about it it's just volumized hair but with a fun name!
I gathered my trusty teasing brush & compiled three of my favorite modern "beehive" looks. Beehives are every where, on the runway, on the new fall t.v shows & now on The Style Dossier. So jump on the beehive bandwagon...come on you know you want to!
*the best thing about these three "beehive" looks is I used the exact same bump for each look.
Step 1. Start by curling your hair. I used hot rollers for extra body but you can use a curling iron & just curl the bottom half of your hair.
Step 2. After you've curled your hair grab some hair on the very top of your head & spray with a volume booster. Then tease that same section of hair. Tease as little or as much as you would like. Step 3. Pin back the teased section of hair. Make sure you leave the sides of your hair unteased. Set with hairspray.
Step 1. Using the same "bump" gather your hair hair off to the side to create a side ponytail.
Leave one strand of hair from the back of the ponytail out. This will be used to wrap around your rubber band. Step 2. Now tie off your ponytail. Once you've got your side ponytail where you want it take that extra piece of hair & wrap it around the rubber band & bobby pin to secure it. Step 3. Set with hairspray.
Step 1. Take down your side ponytail. Now leaves the sides of your hair down. Gather the rest of your hair into a low bun & secure it with a rubber band.
Step 2. Take one side of your hair that was left out & wrap it around your bun. Once it's wrapped around your bun pin it into the bun. It'll help make your bun feel more secure. Do the same exact thing with the other side of your hair. Step 3. Set with hairspray. Add a headband for extra glam if you would like.
Who knew I'd be this obsessed with 60's hair. What's next crimped hair? Oh by the way Katy has that post coming soon. Halloween are you ready for the Castillo girls!
Soon we'll be in that transitional period, where it's not cold enough to wear a coat but it's cool enough for a jacket. We here in Texas are pretty much in that period until January....lame! Good News though, it's the perfect time for a leather jacket! They are not too heavy but just enough for those chilly winds! There are so many variations of leather jackets out there, but here are 3 that we are loving!
One jacket is $10,000, (i bet you can't guess which one) it seems one of us is living in a fairytale thinking she can afford that! I hope she can though, cause then it is our right as sister's to borrow it!
We hope y'all are doing uber-tastic and enjoy hump day as much as us!
It seems like every way I turn I feel like I'm in the 1960's. It's all over my t.v & the magazines. I just can't get enough of the hair & the fashion. To be honest I'm a little jealous that my mom got to grow up during that time. If I could predict my future I'd say there's a pretty good possibility that the 60's will be a part of my halloween costume! Stay tuned for more 60's posts comin' your way.....
The 80's was pretty much that era where anything went. Big hair was in (for guys and girls), Clothing was outrageous, and the makeup well, the more the merrier. Seriously it took a village to put it on and take it off. I should know I did this look two days in a row. I have to say though that I'm super fond of all this makeup, its fun and colorful and well, you can basically look like a clown and still get compliments all night. If you have any 80's party's coming up, as we did (hence this tutorial) or you want something easy for halloween this look would be like so super rad!
Step 1: As with all tutorials start with a bare eye. I used primer on my lid to make sure the colors popped and helped them stay all night long.
Step 2: I used two different blues with this look, The lighter blue I used for the base on my eye lid. Apply it to the lid not going any higher than the crease.
Step 3: This is were the darker blue comes in. Apply the darker blue to the crease and the outer corner of the eye, then you blend these colors as well as you can.
Step 4: Take a white eyeshadow and apply it right under the brow bone, this gives you depth to your look and it will catch the light as well. Then take a purple eyeshadow and apply it right above the darker blue shadow and bring it to the outer corner as well and below the lower lash line. You then need to blend the colors together.
Step 5: If you have it, take a purple eyeliner and line your lower lash line. Note: If you do not have any don't fret, you can always add more purple eyeshadow to your lower lash line.
Step 6: Take a black eyeliner (pencil or liquid) and line your upper lash line, seriously the more the better. For some reason ladies in the 80's loved black eye liner.
Step 7: You then want to take a black and purple eye shadow and go over the eye liner with the same color. The powder over the liner will absorb the liner guaranteeing that it stay all night. Next if you have an aqua colored eye liner feel free to use it now. Line the the lower water line of your eye. This makes your eyes stand out and adds that awesome 80's look to your eye.
Step 8: Curl your lashes and apply about 10 coats of mascara! Ok maybe not that many but 9 will do. Ladies in the 80's were never short mascara so put as many coats as you want to feel satisfied!
Step 9: Blush is a must, take a fuchsia blush or a hot pink color and apply liberally to the apples of the cheeks as well as going up into the hair line.
Step 10: This is my favorite part, THE LIPS! Just apply a hot pink or fuchsia color to your lips (no need for gloss) and voila your gonna look like the bombdiggity!
Crimp and tease your hair as big as you want and have fun with it ladies, I guarantee you can't mess this look up! Yeah like totally!
I'm convinced if any or all of these shoes were in my closet right now, all my problems would be solved. The truth is i'd probably have more problems if i paid $900 for a pair of shoes, but that's another story! For today though, i'm gonna settle for drooling over these oh so fabulous shoes, won't you join me!
PS- Make your Thursday awesome and go LOL at this video, you won't regret it!
Hi there y'all! NYFW has come & gone but it left us with some fantastic ideas! To many for me to count. One show that inspired me was a gal you might know....DVF. I was in awe of the 1960's comeback. Especially those beehives! I tried for about two days straight to get that exact same look as the models did...but that was impossible. My french twist didn't look so "twisty" but the beehive part was rockin' if I say so myself. So I decided to do a little something different, a beehive but a more modern wearable beehive. I love this look or should I say I love the beehive. I'm beginning to wear it with every hairstyle. Pretty soon I may need a beehive intervention!!
I know all of you watched the Emmy's last night, and if you didn't shame on you! OK not really, I'm sort of a TV snob/ TVaholic so I had to watch and root for all my favorite shows. Of course I watched the red carpet to see all the hit and misses of top celebs, makeup and also gowns. There were so many trends on that carpet. One being red dresses, anyone who was anyone was wearing red and two was stunning smokey eyes and nude lips. It was everywhere at the Emmy's and everyone wore it so well. I decided to do the same Emmy look today because I love a good smokey eye and lets face it I just wanna pretend I know what I'm doing!
Step 1: You need to start with a clean naked eye(obviously)I always put primer and some loose powder on my eyelids just to make sure the eyeshadow stays all night.
Step 2: Dust a light brown all over your lid and take a cream highlighting color and dust right below the brow bone. This is gonna be the base of your smokey eye.
Step 3: I mixed a dark brown and a dark purple together and applied it to the crease and the outer corner of my eye. With a blending brush, blend all the colors together to create the smokey effect. Blending is always very important so BLEND BLEND BLEND!
Step 4: Apply a liquid eyeliner to your top lid and then add a black eyeshadow right on top of the liquid liner. This acts as a shield over the liquid to make sure the eyeliner does not smudge.
Step 5: Now this step I was going to apply false lashes to add that extra punch on the eyes, unfortunately I was unaware that I ran out of glue for my falsies so, I just added about 3 coats of my favorite mascara. If you have access to falsies I would suggest you put them on during this step. You wont regret it I PROMISE!
Step 6: Apply a nude lipstick and your favorite lip gloss on top. This look is all about the eyes so the lips need to be nude and glossy!
AND....Your done! Of course don't forget your blush and your set and mist spray!
This look is timeless, smokey eyes and a nude lip always looks stunning. Have fun with this look gals! Glam it up this week!
