Pixiwoo Saturday Night Make-up Tutorial

Admittedly I have a big time girl crush on Nic from Pixiwoo. She is so funny and self-effacing, and her make-up tutorials are pretty much the bomb dot com and surprisingly easy to follow. I watch different ones take note of the same products they use in each one. This is one of my favorites.

I already told Joey I would love the MAC Powersurge pencil and Trax shadow for my birthday!

Prim and proper braided bun

I can't wait to try this braided bun that was originally posted at The Beauty Department. Click the link for the step by step instructions. There's nothing like great hair to soothe those post-holiday blues. Have a great week everyone!

Lana Del Rey - Updated Mod Look

Lana Del Rey's music made up a big part of the soundtrack for the movie, Drive. It contributed to the dreamy and edgy quality of the film. It rocked. These videos embody a certain something: sexy, irreverent, updated mod, and more that words can't describe.
Is this look a  persona? Does it matter? (No.) Its effortlessly badass. I love the smudgy black eyeliner, nude lips, tousled big hair, the clunky gold chain paired with the slender cross... not to mention a voice like honey.
Today if you need me you can find me in my house trying out my new hot rollers while going through kohl eyeliner like a kindergardner with a crayon . Maybe lip-synching to a certain song, I don't know - we'll have to see what happens.
Happy holidays friends!
