can curlers


“Stevie will kill me, but Mama’s got a good sense of humour. Stevie usually shows up to sound check in curlers, and more often than not she actually shows up to the gig in curlers. Sometimes it’s just one or two up front in the bangs, but other times it’s a whole head of big coke can curlers. We had a very creative crew member who liked giving Stevie a hard time about it, so at the last show we bought a truckload of velcro curlers and distributed them to the whole crew and staff, boys and girls alike. When Stevie showed up to gig, she got out of the car (with a full set of curlers, thank god) and saw every single member of the crew with a curler in their hair. She died. So then to top it all off, John decided he wanted to play too, so we put some double stick tape on a curler and put it next to him so that he could stick it to his hat before she turned and looked at him during Gold Dust Woman. Again, she died. We like practical jokes around here…it keeps everything fun.” - Cory Buckingham

My eyelashes don’t like to stay up after I curl and apply mascara.. any ideas?

Curled and fluttery lashes are some of my favourite, they look pretty, soft and delicate but sometimes a little more work than just applying a coat or two of mascara is needed for the best results.

The curling:

A good eyelash curler is essential, this doesn’t mean an expensive lash curler from a cult brand like Shu Uemura, but it means that a $1 one usually won’t cut it. To use an eyelash curler start with clean lashes, hold it at the base of your lashes and squeeze for a few seconds, then walk it out to the middle of your lashes squeeze and then to the very tips of the lashes and squeeze again,  you can also repeat the step but only use your lash curler before mascara, using it after can damage your lashes. Using heat will also make the curl last longer, you can either opt for a heated eyelash curler (which can be used before and after mascara) or heat your eyelash curler under a medium heat (just make sure you test it on the back of your hand first to ensure it is not too hot) for a more effective, long-lasting curl. (Full tutorial on how to curl your lashes)

The primer:

A lash primer will help to make your mascara last longer and will give more length and curl to your lashes which is a huge benefit. I like the Lancome CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base

The mascara:

This is one of the most important steps and an important key when you want to hold a curl on your lashes: use a waterproof mascara. Waterproof mascaras generally hold curl better as it isn’t as easily disrupted by any water from your eyes as a normal mascara. I love Benefit They’re Real Mascara (it’s super long-wearing and has waterproof properties) If you find waterproof mascara irritates your eyes try applying a regular coat of mascara first and then a waterproof coat, this way the waterproof version will grab to your regular mascara and not your lashes. For a more affordable version I love the *Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara, which also has a curved brush helping you pick up every lash.

The application:

Make sure you wiggle the mascara wand at the base of your lashes to give them the most lift and curl possible, you can also “hold” the wand at the tips of your lashes whilst the mascara is setting to give them some extra curl.

I’ve also created another tutorial on how to prime and get the most out of your natural lashes.

Audrey Jensen X Reader

Animated Eyes Part 1

Y/N wraps a robe around her frame and hurries down stairs shouting for Noah to get to the door before her. The knocks come again as she jumps off of the last step, they transition into loud bangs.
“Noah!” The voice shouts. “Noah let me in I’m about to drop this ugly dress you made me buy! And I need to figure out what to do with my hair.”
Y/N rips the door open and Audrey drops all of her things to the ground. Noah’s sister’s eyes pop open wide and she tries to hold in a laugh. The short hair girl freezes up and looks Noah’s sister up and down, only in a robe that stopped above her knees. Her hair was set in rollers and she already had a full face of makeup on except for lipstick. Everything about her made Audrey blush. Audrey places a section of hair behind her ears and looks away biting down on her bottom lip. The only thing that had been on Audrey’s mind the past few weeks was the interaction between the two in the bathroom.
“Are you going to pick up your things?” Y/N says looking at the dress bag on the the ground along with a backpack. Audrey doesn’t respond the heat in her cheeks was getting intense. “Audrey! Earth to Audrey!”
“Yeah,” Audrey jolts, bends down and snatches her things up. “Sorry for the aggressive knocking, clearly interrupting…this…I don’t know.”
“Audrey don’t worry about it,” Y/N says, her anger slowly dissipating and her mood getting better. She starts to laugh. “Uh Audrey I’m not trying to be rude here, but…”

“But what?” Audrey tilts her head feeling confused hugging her things tightly so they wouldn’t fall again. Her brows start to furrow.
“You don’t look like yourself,” Y/N says. “I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in so much makeup and eyeliner. I mean if that’s the look you’re going for…I mean it looks great.”
“I didn’t know what I was doing, I tried my best to do something different from my usual look for this dance,” Audrey says bluntly coming off a little frustrated, her speech was rushed. “It took me a lot of time to attempt this eyeliner wing and I had to keep applying more to get it too look even and neat. I didn’t even want to go to this dance, but Noah is dragging me there.”

He held his hand out to you, “I know that look, babe. Give me the phone.”

bbyjocyyy  asked:

I have a question what's the difference between a $1 eyelash curler and a $20 one ?

Eyelash curlers can seem like a waste of time (and money) for multiple people and it is all to easy to either skip the step completely or go for the cheapest one on the market, but spending a little extra can give you some great results.

beyourselfdontrunaway  asked:

Hello! I love your cosplays and I've wanted to ask this for awhile, but how did you style your oikawa wig? (like the products and such) I'm really new to all this... the base wig i got is ebay(.)com/itm/151324426450 it's very full, but i have no idea how to layer or style it :/ I'm sorry for the sudden question

I can’t give you a step-by-step, mainly because I can’t remember it. Plus, my base wig looked hugely different from yours (here). But! If you’re new to wig styling and you feel overwhelmed where to start and such, doing something like this is (IMO) a good way to get going:

And then make yourself aware of what the main structures in the hairstyle are and what’s different to your base wig. Sort of like this:

(yeah, it looks funny… sorry, Oikawa). Because now you can prioritize! The wig doesn’t have to be 100% correct, because getting the overall “look” right will already get you far. The parting (in red) is already pretty accurate, which is great. You can see that the base wig is too look overall, but especially the yellow part. Trimming that down is a good place to start (pinning the rest up/away). Trimming the smaller part of the green portion (over his right eye) will also help. As for how to do it… I find that is super hard to explain without video and everyone does it differently. Rule of thumb is: layer by layer, starting at the lowest. There are probably a number of video tutorials out there.

For the styling - I drew in a couple of arrows. Getting the spikes to point up (or, in his case, curl up) instead of down, you can use hairspray, gel, curlers, whatever works best for you (here’s my method of doing it). For my Oikawa wig, I just used hairspray & a blow dryer I think… but it’s been a long time.

So there you go!

One limitation, I guess, is that you won’t be able to get the yellow part to point upwards. Wefts are sewn in downwards, so, as opposed to hair, they don’t deal well when they’re short and need to go up. It shouldn’t really make a difference once you trimmed it. If you wanted to achieve that look, you’d have to take out all wefts, sew them back in upside down + probably add a number of them. Sometimes it’s worth the trouble (I did it for Nishinoya) but I personally didn’t do it for Oikawa.

Well, good luck! ;)

(don’t judge, I have to use these gifs somewhere B,))


This is what comes to my mind when I hear the words “back to school makeup.” It takes less than five minutes to apply (perfect for when you’re rushing to get out the door after hitting the snooze button too many times), and to the untrained eye it might even look like you aren’t wearing any makeup at all. My younger sister recently started experimenting with makeup and asked me how much she should wear to school. Here are the products and routine I recommended to her. As always, all photos are unedited so you can see how it looks in person.

1. You’ll need to start with a clean face. (You can find my routine for sensitive, acne-prone skin here.) I would recommend putting your hair up or tying it back so it will be out of your way.

2. Start off with a BB cream. I’m using Maybelline’s Dream Fresh formula, but you can honestly use any BB cream or light foundation as long as it’s oil-free and won’t clog your pores. Squeeze a penny sized amount onto your fingertips and dot it all over your face and neck before gently blending it out with your fingers or a sponge. 

3. Take a concealer slightly lighter than your natural skin tone (I’m using Maybelline’s cover stick) and dot a tiny bit in the area under your eyes, and a bit more on your eyelids, all the way up to your brow bones; see picture below. Gently blend it out with the tips of your ring ringers. This seems like a stupid step but I promise that it makes you look way more awake and alert. 

4. Set your makeup with powder. I’m using Maybelline’s Fit Me powder, but it really doesn’t matter what brand you use. Use a fluffy brush to lightly dust the powder all over your face and neck, focusing on your forehead, nose, and chin. You can skip this step if your skin tends to be dry or if you aren’t going to be doing anything that might make you sweat today.

5. This next part is a little tricky to explain, but it’s not that hard to do. You’re going to tightline your eyes. “Tightlining” is just applying eyeliner to your waterline (the thin, flesh colored strip under your lashes; see far left picture below). You just take a dark brown eyeliner pencil (It has to be pencil! This does not work with other eyeliner formulas!) and fill in your top waterline (see far right picture below). Don’t fill in the bottom – it does not look as natural and it tends to make your eyes look small and tired. It doesn’t hurt, I promise, and if your eyes water a bit that’s totally normal. I used an Almay eye pencil, but I’m not going to bother to link you to the product because it doesn’t show up very well and isn’t as dark as I’d like. Maybelline and CoverGirl both have good eyeliners. 

6. Finish the eyes with mascara. Try to find one that has a more natural finish. I’m using CoverGirl’s Professional Super Thick Lash mascara. Apply a single coat to your top lashes, then blink to coat your bottom lashes. You can use an eyelash curler beforehand, but I honestly prefer to just curl them with my fingers while the mascara is drying. Add another light coat, and you’re ready to go. 

7. Give your lips some love. Since the whole point of this makeup is to look natural, I would suggest going with a tinted lip balm. All the girls in my freshman year were obsessed with Baby Lips – each of us had at least one tucked into her purse or backpack. Or you could go with a clear or nude lipgloss (I like Maybelline’s Shinesational gloss and L’Oreal’s Color Riche). Swipe a little bit over your lips, let your hair down (or don’t, it’s up to you) and you’re done! 

anonymous asked:

That black shirt with the splattery hearts and stars and stuff in grey, pink and green is SO COOL! Where did you get it?

thanks! (the sleeves also work as fingerless gloves, sorta haha) and I got it in some shop here in Italy, not sure where you can get something similar, sorry :^(

Anon:How do you get your hair to be so perfectly curly and beyootiful?!? I love my straight hair but I’d adore having your luscious curls x3

it’s natural! if I wash my hair and let it dry without hair dryer it turns out like that lmao maybe you can try with curlers?

Popular: Vintage Wisdom for a Modern Geek by Maya Van Wagenen

Rating: ★★★★☆


Stuck at the bottom of the social ladder at pretty much the lowest level of people at school who aren’t paid to be there, Maya Van Wagenen decided to begin a unique social experiment: spend the school year following a 1950s popularity guide, written by former teen model Betty Cornell. Can curlers, girdles, Vaseline, and a strand of pearls help Maya on her quest to be popular?

The real-life results are painful, funny, and include a wonderful and unexpected surprise—meeting and befriending Betty Cornell herself. Told with humor and grace, Maya’s journey offers readers of all ages a thoroughly contemporary example of kindness and self-confidence.


When I first heard of this books, it did not strike me as something I would enjoy. First of all, it’s non-fiction, which I rarely read. Second of all, the topic of popularity is not something I like to spend much time thinking about. I always considered it some out-of-reach concept of worship that would never even enter my world. But as I read more about it, I got curious. This is the true story (it is in fact a memoir) of a girl in middle school, who decides to use tips from the 50’s in her everyday life, and as a big fan of anything vintage and anything that might make a good story, I decided to pick it up. And I am overjoyed that I did.

What I found was an incredibly relatable story, to me and to anyone who has ever felt as if they are a bit of an outcast or has ever struggled socially at school. The fact that it is a memoir makes it feel extremely real and honest. In a sweet and uplifting fashion, Maya tells the story of how she navigated 8th grade with (mostly) unwavering bravery and precise observations and commentary. The story is beautifully written and to top it off, Maya was only fifteen when she wrote it! It is truly inspiring to see how she grows in wisdom, confidence, and courage as the story progresses. It is a unique book and I doubt I will ever read something like it every again.

The story of Maya’s last year in middle school was not at all shallow or superficial, as I had first feared.  Even though Maya starts out craving popularity, she soon realizes that what she is searching for is much more complex than she first thought. For what is popularity, really? Is it being liked by everybody? Is it being considered “cool” and wearing the right clothes? Or is it less about how others see you and more about how you make them feel? After a yearlong social experiment, Maya certainly has an answer to that question. But I won’t tell you what it is. Pick this book up and find it out for yourself.
