How To Style Maiden Braids

How To Style Maiden Braids
Last month I did a makeover story with Kelsie and had many requests for a maiden braid tutorial. Yesterday she came in and we photographed these simple step by steps. Kelsie has extremely long and thick hair, but anyone with shoulder length or longer can do these braids (see my photo below for an example). Steps 1-2: Braid two strands on each side of a center part. Steps 3-5: Wrap braids around the crown of your head and pin in place with one pin each. Step 6: Arrange braids so that they cover the front of your head like a headband. Steps 7-8: Pull the rest of the hair into a ponytail and pin it into a cute messy bun. Step 9: Add final pins and spray.

How to Apply Fake Eyelashes I remember being asked in the initial stages of setting up this Singapore Beauty Blog how to apply fake eyelashes. Despite its popularity, it seemed applying false eyelashes can be really difficult if you dont know the basic how-to. I honestly dont remember where I learnt how to apply falsies, but I would like to think I’ve gotten the art of applying fake eyelashes down to a pat. Fake eyelashes do a fantastic job at enlarging your eyes and adding definition. You can choose to add either massive volume or length to your natural lashes or be extra glamorous and add both for maximum effect! I didnt go through in detail how to apply fake eyelashes in the vintage make up tutorial I filmed with SuperKawaiiMama, so I’m going to personally show you how to apply fake lashes yourself.
