Wing It: Cat Eyes For Every Eye Shape

The cat eye is one technique that leaves many feeling defeated. It’s challenging to pull off, and the same eye lining method will not work on every person. The secret? Knowing your eye shape. All you need is our simple eye guide below and a steady hand. If you think cat eyes won’t work on you, think again! A note – it’s common that your eye shape may fall into several categories. Combine recommended techniques to guide you toward a custom cat eye just for you. Down-Turned Eyes A cat eye works very well for this eye shape. Rounded outer lids can create a downturned appearance that’s only enhanced by a hard line. Here’s the trick: instead of following the eye shape, pick the ideal point where you’d like the winged liner to flare, and connect it to your top liner, and then connect to the end of your bottom lid. This is a chunkier cat eye with a triangular look that makes the eyes appear lifted. For even more lift, use a flesh-toned pencil …

DIY: BRAIDED HAIRSTYLES

Hey everyone, So I came across this fabulous youtube channel “cute girl’s hairstyles”, and I was wowed!!!! It’s such an irony though that in a country like ours where we regularly do alot of braids that we don’t see some of these creative styles. These things should be a norm for us. This lady does amazing things with braids, I’m in awe of her creativity. The best part is, some of these hairstyles takes about 3 minutes or less to get them done Nigerians!!!!! We need to step up and be creative…. there are so many things to do, one just needs to think outside the box. Anyway, before I start going off the topic at hand *siiiiigh*…..:( LOL! Here are some of her videos. Lets learn new haistyles and go rocking *wink* “DOUBLE-TWISTED BUN UP DO” “WATERFALL TWISTS INTO MERMAID BRAIDS!” “STACKED TWIST PONYTAIL” I could have posted 10 of her videos if I wanted to, but that’s just going to be too much. looool In the meantime, let me know what you think. And you …

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 …

DIY: LIPSTICK TUTORIAL USING CRAYONS

Hellooooo my beautiful gods and goddesses…..:) It’s Wednesday and it’s a day for DIY *grin* I loooooove me some DIY. So the fun thing about makeup is that when you do not have a particular color you need for something say a lip color or an eye shadow color, you can always improvise *grin*. Don’t you just love it? The fact that you cant be stuck or limited to what you want to do just because a color is not available. You can improvise with anything as long as it's NON TOXIC. Eye shadows, crayons, lipgloss, anything at all depending on what you are trying to achieve. Of course most of us if not everyone knows about the presence of lead in some of these products, you want to be careful what you put on your lip.
