Hey Guys, you know I’ve spent a little time having my hair and makeup done ; ) and I wanted to share with you some tips on how to get a smoky eye and wavy hair that you can use for New Year’s Eve. My make-up artist Kelsey James, does a great smokey eye that you could try for tomorrow night. Please watch the step-by-step video on how to get a smoky eye that is simple and you can do yourself. I also show you how to create a super simple beach wave hair style. Enjoy and have a safe and happy New Year!

For a smokey eye: camila_newyearblog_4

Apply a primer from lash line to brow.

Use a neutral taupe eyeshadow in the socket of your eye. The fluffier the brush, the better.
Take a kohl pencil and sketch in where you want the darker area to be.

Blend.

Apply a corresponding dark shadow over the kohl pencil.

Blend.

Use a metallic cream eyeshadow on the inner corner and the eyelid.

Place a black liner on the inner rim of your eye.

Softly smudge the pencil and shadow on the lower lash line.

Apply false lashes and mascara.
Viola!

 

For beach waves:

Medium size curling iron suggested

Use curling iron to flaten out the roots

Wrap hair around curling iron

Count to ten

Pull curl out

Stretch the hair

Shake each curl with your hand up a bit and you have the beach wave

Use smaller hair straighten iron for small pieces near your face

Get really small sections of your hair in the front

Get close to root and turn while you do it ( shown in video)

This gives you more volume

Don’t wrap the last piece of your hair

This gives it a more natural look

Spray hair spray around your hair

**For a more intense volume flip your hair over and spray with hair spray and flip back up camila_newyearblog_1

  • Hey,

    That was a cool video. I think the way you present is excellent. Very relatable. Btw, I was thinking of getting a curler tong but I thought it wouldn’t work on my hair because my hair is thick…… I’m going to subscribe to keep updated with your posts! Thank you for them!
