Peacock Makeup Hey everyone! I was looking at Van Gogh's Starry Night online because it has an amazing range of colors and wanted to do a look inspired by it! As I started doing the look however, I started adding peacock colors and slowly shifted towards that instead so it's now a mixture of both. Either way, I love this look because I went out of my comfort zone and tried a different technique of shadow. The look: Let's begin! To start off, take a white eyeshadow base (NYX Milk) And apply all over the lid And blend out with your ring finger Now, take a black eyeliner and draw out a semi circle (it doesn't have to be perfect) Now take a dark matte teal color (Mac Plumage) And apply with a small concealer brush, packing on the color little by litlle above the semi circle To look like Take a blending brush and blend out the dark teal (using Sigma blending brush) Take a white matte shadow (Mac Chamomile) And apply as a highlight under the brow using a flat shader brush (Mac 239) And apply the gold on the inner corner
Pin-It-Up Hair Style Our email box is literally flooded with requests for updos so here’s a fun one to get us all going! This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with hilighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”. Tools you’ll need: curling iron (to prep the hair with waves), sectioning clips, teasing comb or brush, clear elastic rubber band, bobby pins, light to medium holding hairspray (to mist over at the end).

The Loom Braid June 4th, 2011By: Heather A few days ago I posted a picture of myself on twitter with a new hairstyle I saw on Pintrest. I’d made it my mission to figure out to to do it. I was pretty proud of myself when I succeeded. It’s beautiful and a great summer style that gets your hair off your face. if you can’t see the video above, click here. Any questions, let me know! Summer Hair Braid Trends Braids, pleats, or plaits—whatever you call them, we're absolutely loving all things twisted in hair this season. Beautylish brings you the three hottest braid trends this season and three easy braid DIY tutorials to replicate the look yourself. Who needs a headband when you can make one from your hair! We're loving this European, Heidi-inspired front braid that you can style into an updo or wear with your hair down. See how easy it is to give yourself a plait with Imogen's tutorial. It's easy to give your braids a little extra something with ribbons, flowers, bows, and any other accessories you can think of. The fishtail braid (or Herringbone braid) became a popular trend among celebrities and fashion mavens this year, and we too adore the sea-inspired style.
How-To: Newsprint Manicure I saw this newsprint manicure over on The Daily Nail and thought it was adorable (especially for bookworms and word lovers like myself). I did a little Google detective work to see how to recreate it, and was surprised at how easy it is! All of the tutorials I found called for vodka or other clear distilled spirits, but we were fresh out. I used isopropyl alcohol instead, and it seemed to get the job done. Like this: Like Loading... Hair DIY - Bow Bun Tutorial It's February 29th, Leap Day, which means the rules don't apply, so we are going rogue today with a hair tutorial, a first here for Mama Duck. I made up this bow one day in a frantic effort to make my hair "event ready" before a Broadway show opening, and it's since become my "go to" hair when I have events. You will need a hair elastic, hairspray and a heaping mess of bobby pins. I have a ton of hair, so I use about 15 pins, but you won't need nearly as much with shorter hair. Your hair should be straight and tangle-free. So without further ado, here's a step-by-step photo guide for your own bow bun. Update: I've got a second round of photos of the bow bun. Enjoy, and Happy Leap Day! If you give this a try, either send me a picture or if you're on instagram, use tag #ducksinarowhair and post your bow!
CROWN OF BRAIDS photos + post design Kristin Ess It seems pretty easy, but it’s not. Not everyone has long hair that reaches all the way around the head to make a perfect crown of braids. Girls with short hair need braids TOO! Using this technique, you make small, overlapping intersections of braids to create a full crown. Here’s how: Start with straight, wavy or curly hair. A veil of hairspray isn’t necessary but will help keep things in place if your hair tends to slip.
