Hair & Makeup

Date Night: Contouring & Spanish Wave

Hey everyone! I'm coming at you today with another "date night" look. If you recall, I shared the disastrous details of my initial attempt at using waist length clip-in hair extensions in My 18" Extensions...#FAIL! post. Anywho, I said I'd share the results of my second attempt, and I'm happy to say that the revisions I made did the trick! Of course, this date night look wouldn't be complete without some makeup, so I put together the look you see at left.

The makeup look, which is a smokey pink eye, was inspired by the
Victoria's Secret Inspired Makeup tutorial by PrettiRell. Although I can't take credit for the eye look, the highlighting and contouring was all my idea ;-). No seriously, I love highlighting and contouring my face when I go out at night because it gives the face a nice structured look.

To see how I contoured my face and went from bra/mid-back length to waist length hair, click the "read more" button. **Warning! This post is pic heavy, so slow loaders beware!
