• Beauty Tutorial: Vintage Look With a Modern Twist

    Vintage Beauty Tutorial | Photos by Cassandra Photo; Hair & Styling by Maritza Buelvas; Makeup by Brenda Arelano I don’t often share beauty tutorials on the blog, but I do love them, so when Maritza Buelvas sent this my way I thought you might love it too. While this can help you recreate your own Mad Men-inspired look with a modern edge for your wedding day, you could also use it for a date night, school dance, as a bridesmaid, or for a fun night out with the girls. You don’t have to be a bride-to-be to try it out! Here are Maritza’s styling tips for creating your own Mad Men inspired beauty look, complete with a step-by-step tutorial.

    I recommend pairing Old Hollywood or vintage styles with modern staples for the ultimate bombshell look. Try the following look, two ways – keep things simple without any hair accessories or top things off with a slinky head chain for extra sultriness.

    Here are a few beauty tips and product suggestions for re-creating a Mad Men inspired look with a modern edge.

    {Hair}

    Step One: Curl long hair to mold hair and allow for pinning up into a faux bob.

    Step Two: Tease at the crown, sides, nape and front to create volume and apply spray to set curls. Pin horizontal curled sections downwards towards the nape of the neck and set curl in place with pins tucked in criss cross position. This criss cross motion allows for hair not to move since you are creating a faux bob. Pin curls around the entire head using this same technique.

    Step Three: Tease at ends to create volume and hold where need be. Add holding spray. Add a touch of trendy glam by incorporating a head chain (if desired) or wear without.

    Step Four: Create a nude lid by blending dainty pinks and highlighting the crease with matte taupe eyeshadow

    Step Five: Apply false lashes, soft pink blush and matte pink lipstick in your favorite shade.

       The earthquake and the avalanche aftermath have hit Nepal and surrounding areas with tragedy more than we could ever imagine. The latest update is that over 4,000 have been killed by this devastating tragedy and thousands remain missing. The sweet ladies behind @utterlyengaged and @ever_ours have created @fornepalwithlove, just as they did for Japan and the Philippines to raise money for Nepal. With the death toll rising every hour and the area not equipped with the essentials they need, they have chosen @ShelterBox as their go-to organization. ShelterBox provides emergency shelter and lifesaving supplies for families around the world who are affected by disasters at the time when they need it the most. Each large green ShelterBox is tailored to a disaster but typically contains a disaster relief tent for an extended family, blankets, water storage and purification equipment, cooking utensils, a stove, a basic tool kit, a children’s activity pack and other vital items. One box helps one family and we're hoping to raise enough for 5 boxes to help 5 families. Please help with whatever you can. I encourage you to follow @fornepalwithlove and feel free to regram and repost this image to spread the word. And donate at http://www.fornepalwithlove.com -- every little bit helps! I'll be donating what I can and I will also donate 10% of any new sponsored posts or ad buys starting today for the next month. #fornepalwithlove ❤️
       Walking to the car this morning on our way to school Charlie saw a bird flying by and said "look momma, a bird! It was making a beautiful noise." I said "yes buddy, that is the bird singing." He said "that was a beautiful sound. But you know what is even more beautiful?" Me: "no buddy, what?" Charlie: "you!"  This kid is smoooooth I tell ya. Totally works too. #stuffmycharliesays #charlesdashiell  by @punambean
