Daytime Retro Hair and Makeup Demonstration

Final Result

This is my first real attempt at making a hair and makeup video. It's not really a tutorial, but more of a demonstration. I realized that I didn't like the sound of my own voice and it was a bit nerve-wracking to try and talk the whole time, so I just recorded my every day makeup process and a page boy hair style. I took the sound off and sped it up, even though it's still 15 minutes long. If you want to skip the makeup, the hair starts at minute six.

Tip: Make sure your hair is completely dry before removing the hair clips.

Ultimate Vegas Outfit

I was recently approached by to participate in the search for the #UltimateVegasOutfit. I am actually going to Las Vegas in February and was very excited to show off my vintage style. I chose to put together an outfit for the day and one for the night.
