DIY OMBRE HAIR BY BACKSYNCFAN

Hey everyone, It’s DIY Wednesday…… *drum roll* So today, we will be doing a “DIY OMBRE HAIR”. Ombre hair has been trending for quite a while now, and still is. But I happen to be one of those who would rather treat my weave myself than give it to someone to do it for me. The first time I ever tried giving my new weave to a stylist she messed up my hair so bad,I regretted ever thinking about it and then going ahead to give her the weave to highlight for me. I love highlights on my hair so much! Towards the end of last year and early this year I had a signature hairstyle going on for months….. One time it was purpe, and then I did blue, red, and white lol. I was having fun playing with colors and I loved it. Pregnancy however, made me go on a break……:( *sigh*. Can’t wait to bounce back looooool. It’s not like I can’t do it now, afterall it would be done on a …

MAKEUP TUTORIAL: CRYSTAL EYELINER

Hey everyone, Sure you had a fantastic weekend……:) I am very excited because, it’s a new week. I love it when a new week starts makes me feel good especially since my birthday is approaching *grin* So today’s tutorial is “how to: crystal eyeliner” by PIXIWOO. I love bold liners so much, I can go without an eyeshadow (which I consider stress especially when I am not in the mood for makeup, I just don’t have the patience for the whole application and blending process *phew*). So my liquid liner is a sure way for me to go looooool. Today’s eyeliner tutorial involves the use of glitters….. Well I won’t say it’s an everyday look, as it requires more time to do. It is actually wearable for me, maybe not on a daily basis. For parties maybe, or events, weddings, I can rock this to most occasions. But I would like you to watch the video and let me know what “YOU” think.

I won’t have to go through the process of buying a not so good product and getting upset later.Lol Here’s the video guys, see for yourself and let me know what you think…..:)

DIY: LIPSTICK PALLETE

Hey everyone, It’s DIY Wednesday again, whoo hoo……… “Lipstick pallete a space saver”. Who relates with me on this? Many a time I get tired of carrying so many different lipsticks or lip gloss in one purse. It gets so tiring, apart from the fact that most times the purse gets heavy due to the different products meant for different purposes in the purse. That’s one, two Imagine (makeup artists would relate more with this) having a bag full of high end lipsticks or that favorite lip color you love and then you loose the bag or some of your products…..It is really painful trust. Makeup artists suffer this a lot especially when they have to work in a crowded place it gets all crazy and if you are not careful or observant, your products get missing. Palletes come in very handy anyday, anytime. Sometimes your favorite lipgloss falls and breaks obviously it’s already useless but don’t toss the content with the bottle just yet, you can empty it into a storage can. There are …
