Long hair look as seen on Jennifer Lawrence:
 
Step 1: On damp hair, layer a dime size of Nourishing Nectar sculpting gel with a quarter size of Root Lift spray hair mousse. 
Step 2: Blow dry hair using a round brush for volume and smoothness.
Step 3: Set hair with a 1" curling iron. Let hair cool, and then brush out with a soft paddle brush. 
Step 3: Twist back the right panel of hair and secure with a bobby pin
Step 4: Finish the look with Radiance Amplifier anti frizz shine spray for added shine and Strengthening Control zero dulling hairspray for long lasting hold.


Medium hair look as seen on Claire Danes:
 
Step 1: Apply a quarter size of Root Lift spray hair mousse and Lustrous Volumizer bodifying glaze to damp hair.
Step 2: Create a deep right side part, and blow dry hair using a paddle brush.
Step 3:  Gather hair into a low, loose pony tail.  Wrap a section of hair around the pony tail and secure with bobby pins.
Step 4: Finish the look with Supreme Control zero dulling hairspray for long lasting hold and fly away protection.
 


 
Short hair look as seen on Anne Hathaway:
 
Step 1: Apply a quarter size of Silk Bodifer voluminizing mousse to damp hair.
Step 2: Using a vent brush, blow dry hair in the direction of the front of the head.
Step 3: Emulsify a small amount of Control Twist high hold liquid wax for texture, and create a small pompadour in the front of the head.
Step 4: Set the look with Supreme Control zero dulling hairspray.




Keep Calm and Kiss On

My two favorite lipsticks

Most probably already know the dupe for YSL #30 Faubourg Peach is Mac's Cut A Caper. 

Although these two are very similar Mac Cut A Caper has a slightly more pink undertone.These are my new favorite lipsticks to wear together. I usually wear the Mac on top generally because I like more of a matte finish. The YSL is so creamy.

Recipe: Blue Cheese Buffalo Chicken


I know this is a step outside the beauty and fashion world but I felt like posting a recipe! Its something that I have mastered and been making for about 3 years. Can't remember where I saw it ( wasn't pinterest).

Ingredients:
Chicken Breasts
1 Package Blue Cheese Crumbles
1 Bottle Franks Buffalo Sauce
Butter
Pepper
Salt 
Any seasoning you want to season chicken

Sauce:
1 Tablespoon Butter
3 Tablespoons Blue Cheese
1 Cup Franks Buffalo Sauce
The sauce is optional I use the butter and blue cheese to tone down the heat from the franks you can just pour straight Franks sauce over chicken if you wish



Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 mins




Season chicken to your liking. I use garlic salt, pepper, and Lawry's


First you want to butterfly the chicken and create a pocket


Next pouring 3/4 of the blue cheese into a separate dish ( you'll be digging your hands in this after you've touched the chicken) Stuff the chicken with desired amount of blue cheese


Heat pan with oil on medium heat and sear chicken about 3-5 mins on each side



meanwhile make your sauce and preheat oven to 350 degrees




Pour all ingredients in a pan and simmer until butter melts






Once chicken is seared coat bottom of a pan with sauce 









Add chicken and pour remaining sauce over chicken 


Bake for 35-40 mins on 375

These flats are so comfortable. They weren't what I expected at first. I was expecting sequins but they are actually metallic flakes, which are better! They don't fall off and it looks better in person.
