I did it. I stepped out of my box and completely put myself out there! It was fun but of course my first time around it didn’t go as smoothly as I had hoped. My camera kept dying on me and I didn’t have enough memory.
I was nervous and just kept talking so I had to cut a bunch down so it’s a little choppy and not the best so I am sorry. I hope the next one I decide to do is much better.
Since I don’t have the ability to embed videos to my blog yet here is the link to the Youtube video http://youtu.be/vy3yc0lULpE
So!!! The video is a Halloween tutorial for a flapper or boardwalk empire inspired costume. I mostly did just a hair and makeup look but I did talk about the costume.
FOR THE HAIR:
What I recommend to get the look is to have at least one day dirty hair I use a Kerastase product for my hair after I shower which adds some hold and some texture to my hair and I also add a sea salt spray to add some wave. To get the wave I used a triple barrel iron to get the impression of a finger wave and then I just scrunched up the bottom of my hair and pinned under to give the illusion of a bob. add a soft hold hairspray I used Oribe which is my absolute favorite.
For hair accessories, you can take any type of headband that looks a little glamorous and just add it like I did above. You can also take a headband with any type of adornment like a feather or jewels or both. Also take a scarf preferably in a solid color but shiny like below and just twist and tie.
the steps are in the video but I wanted to put down what I used.
