HOW TO: CUTE BOW BUN
Guest Post for Powder Doom by Ire at unrully

1. Start by pulling your hair up into a ponytail.
2. Divide your ponytail into three sections. The section in the middle should be smaller than the other two.
3. Braid the middle section and clip it out of the way.
4. Twist each of the two remaining sections around itself and secure the ends at the base of the ponytail using a bobby pin.
5. Bring the braided section forward and secure it underneath the rest of the hair using a bobby pin.
Finished!

HOW TO: SIXTIES HAIR TUTORIAL
by Vanessa

This hair tutorial presents an easy way to get a cute sixties hairstyle.

All you need is a 1‘‘ curling iron, a comb or a teasing brush (well just something you like to tease with, I’m using my tangle teaser in this tutorial),  a round brush, some duckbill clips, a bobby pin and (of course) hairspray. This hairstyle works with shorter or longer hair, with bangs or without.

HOW TO: Easy Peasy 10 Minute Peachy Glow Makeup
by Sade

More often than not, i’m in a rush in the mornings. As a student, I find it almost impossible to find time to do my makeup the way I want during the oh-my-gosh-i’ve-woken-up-ten-minutes-before-my-lecture times, but i’ve found this no-makeup makeup look does the trick. It makes you look like you’ve slept for 6 hours plus, when in reality you’ve been up watching Netflix in your underwear and worrying about the essay you haven’t started at 4am. Joan Smalls rocks the no makeup makeup look perfectly. 

The Inspiration:

What I Used:

Iman BB Creme in ‘Clay Med Deep’
MAC Mineralize skin finish natural in ‘Dark’
Sleek Contour Kit in ‘Medium’
NYX Blush in ‘Cinnamon’
L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara
Collection 2000 Extreme Felt Liner
MUA Lipstick in ‘Nectar’

HOW TO: UNDERCOVER’S A/W 14 RED EYES
Guest post for Powder Doom by Hannah Smith

I was completely obsessed with the Undercover’s AW 14 makeup because red eyeliner/eyeshadow is one of my favourite looks ever. Naturally, I decided to try and recreate it (minus the red contact lenses because I do actually wear glasses and I’m paranoid about eye stuff).

[EDITORS NOTE: Only use red makeup that explicitly states it is safe to use on your waterline - please be safe!]

Even if I think she’s being a scrub right now, I have a total lady boner over her short hair and had to know the details. I got the run-down on Miley’s new signature hair situation directly from her stylist ,Brant Mayfield of Solo Artists. Above are all the products, below is his step-by-step process with Miley including shoppable links. 

«  To begin I start off by applying a small amount of René Furterer OKARA light activating leave-in fluid to towel-dried hair, working the product through to the ends to nourish the hair while adding radiance to Miley’s blonde locks.

«  Next, I distribute a reasonable amount of René Furterer VOLUMEA volumizing foam from scalp to ends for long-lasting volume and substantial hold.  I then brush it through with a Mason Pearson brush to evenly distribute the product.

«  Using a BarBar 3800 blow dryer, I rough-dry the hair until it is about 75% dry.

«  Following that, I section off the hair and blow it out using a medium-sized Ibiza boar bristle round brush until the hair is completely dry. I make sure to round the left side so I can get the height and shape over to the right. As I move further to the right I begin to blow the hair straight to create the asymmetric silhouette.

«  Next, I back-comb sections from the flipped left side so it stays in place.

«  I coat my hands with half a dime-sized amount of René Furterer Modeling Paste and work the product into top of hair, avoiding the root, to create texture and to hold the shape.

«  Next I lightly spray the left back-combed root section with René Furterer NATURIA dry shampoo to help build the base and keep the fullness throughout the night. I pull the hair through with a wide-tooth comb as not a break up the height and shape. This combined with the Modeling Paste will add a great chunky texture to the style.

«  Following that, I lightly mist the René Furterer VEGETAL Finishing Spray to set the hair.

«  Once set, I coat my hands with one pump of René Furterer KARITÉ leave-in repairing serum to smooth out the ends, tame “fly aways” and to add movement to the style.

«  After Miley is dressed, I put the final touches on the look by fingering her hair into place and lightly misting with René Furterer VEGETAL Finishing Spray for the hold that will last the evening.
