New Haircut

Hello everyone! So as you can tell from the title, I got a haircut.  It's been a couple of months since my last haircut....ok so maybe more than a couple of months. lol I really needed a trim though seeing as I constantly blow-dry and straighten my hair.  As for my hair itself, it was a disaster to deal with.  My ends were as dry as straw, a majority of them had split ends, and the overall look of it was dull. So I went to my local hair salon, Salon Amore, looked through the magazines for a cut that would be flattering for my face, and found the perfect cut for me.

So here is the before and after pics:

I got about 2 inches off for a more healthier look.  My bangs and layers were reshaped and the ends were curled in a bit to finish off the look.

I really like the cut overall.  It's definitely going to make shampooing and styling my hair a lot easier and more managable.  What do you all think about my new look?  Comments are always welcome.

I've finally finished testing out the new makeup products that I bought so that post will be up tomorrow.  I definitely can't wait to show you all what I got! :)

Makeup Tutorial: 2NE1's "I Am the Best" Promo Poster Look

Yo!  It's been a while. hehe sorry I've been offline for the past couple of weeks but I have an excuse.  Ready? Can I get a drumroll please? I finally got a job!!!! Yipeee! lol Yep that's right I finally got a job for the summer as administrative assistant for a company.  Even though I will be working over the summer, I'm going to try really hard to post up new looks, OOTDs especially for work, and reviews on new products that I will be purchasing soon but for now here is another new look that you all can try. :)

2NE1 just recently released their new single, "I Am the Best" as well as the mv to it on YouTube.  Before the debut of the mv, they had been teasing their fans on their YouTube channel with the promo poster and audio clips for the single.  So while I was anxiously waiting for the single to come out, I thought it'd be awesome to recreate their cartoon promo poster look instead.

While I am still listening to this song over and over again (to the point that it's stuck in my head), the poster itself is very eye-catching and reminds me of the powerpuff girls.  It's cute yet mischievous and fierce at the same time.

Products Used in this Tutorial:
Clinique concealer in 05 Medium Beige
bare Minerals foundation powder in Summer Bisque
bare Minerals Mineral Veil
Ulta eyeshadow kit (teal, matte blue, navy blue, and black)
Smashbox Lash DNA mascara
Ulta gel eyeliner in black

Victoria's Secret Blush in In Lust
Victoria's Secret lipstick in Kiss Me

Start off with a clean and moisturized face.  Fill in the brows with an eyebrow pencil or powder since they will be framing your whole face at the end of this tutorial. Take your favorite concealer and apply it under your eyes as well as around the nose and corners of your mouth to cover up dark spots and shadows.  Set your face ready for makeup by applying on foundation for even coverage and a clear canvas.

Next take a matte blue eyeshadow and apply all over your lids.  This will be a base color for the lighter and darker shades of blue.  With a teal blue color, apply to the inner corners of your eyes and blend it out.  Now with a navy blue color, apply to the outer V as well as the crease of your eyes and gently blend it out to create a smokey effect.  Now with a black eyeshadow, lay it over the navy blue to intensify the look.  Line your upper lashline with either a black gel eyeliner or liquid eyeliner and about 3/4's of your lower lashline with a black eyeliner pencil. To make the look bolder and more dramatic, take a Q-tip and load it up with the navy blue and black eyeshadows and line the lower lashline. Be sure to connect the eyeliners together to make the look complete.  Add false lashes before curling and coating your lashes with mascara.

Curl your lashes and coat them with your favorite volumizing mascara.  Finally apply a pink blush to the apples of your cheeks and fill in your lips with a pink lipstick and you're done! :)

And here is the final look:

A look that's perfect for a night to the club or a party.  Your eyes will look very dramatic and bold in these shades of blue.  I hope you all will enjoy this look. :) Until next time!

XOXO Sammy <3
