55% luck and 45% make-up. Tutorial after the jump!
See how the ends of hair wisp in all the right places? This is reason enough for me to never have rebonded hair as unmanageable as it can be.
I got a hair cut on Monday by a very nervous ACutAbove Academy student (teacher helped, of course) at a charity event in my college. Not bad for 10 bucks and an ice cream, eh?
I was basically just trying out several new products but I suppose this look could work for a family dinner, daytime gathering or church. It's mostly natural but with enough glow and metallic sheen to make it more festive. This look uses only three colors including highlight!

Prep lid with an eyeshadow primer. Using an eyeshadow brush (Stila #30), apply a metallic bronze-brown eyeshadow on the lid and blend the color up to the crease. Take a round crease brush and place a deep purple shade to the outer V and blend it out.
Apply the same color onto the lower lash line using a small precision brush. Join the outer corners and thin out towards the inner corner. Highlight under the brow with a soft champagne gold using a dense highlight brush. Line the upper lash line close to the roots using a black eye pencil.
Apply generous coats of mascara and fill in the eyebrows.

Pick up a shimmery peachy pink blush with a duo fiber cheek brush (MAC188 dupe) and tap off any excess to avoid shimmer overload. Lightly contour with a bronzing powder.

The weather's been so cloudy lately that I'm having trouble setting the right white balance on my camera.
I'll be spending Christmas with family.
How will you be celebrating Christmas?
Happy Christmas everyone! :D
