Pull-Through Braid Updo

Have you ever heard of the pull-through braid? Although a bit more time consuming than a normal braid, this method gives you the look of an INVERTED braid. What's better than a braid?! An updo of course! 

Today I'll be showing you how to go from a classic pull through braid:

To this gorgeous pull through braid updo that can be worn neat or messy:

I've created a video tutorial for this look, because it will much easier to explain!

Dutch Fishtail Braid

I think I have a small obsession with braids....you may or may not have noticed this! That being said, I'm totally in love with this dutch fishtail braid that I thought I'd share it with you all today. Surprisingly, its pretty simple to do and I've even included a video tutorial below!

This looks adorable whether its to the side as shown here, straight down the back, and even diagonally!

Video Tutorial:

Bold Smokey Eye & Red Lips

Hi there! Today's makeup is VERY dramatic and was oh so fun to create. I've been playing around with this look a lot, and finally decided to film a tutorial to go along with it. If this look is too bold for you, try out a nude lip...I absolutely LOVE the combo. Let me know if you would rock bold eyes AND lips in the comments below.
