Steps:

1. Part your hair to one side and section a small amount of hair from the crown to begin the braid.

2. Next, loosely french braid inside-out moving down towards the top of the ear.

3. Finish the braid at the jaw line and pull remaining hair into a full side ponytail. Fasten with a clear hair-tie.

4. Working from the top down, carefully loosen each section of the braid to widen for fullness.

5. Complete the look by wrapping a small piece of hair from the ponytail around the hair-tie and bobby-pin.

 

BeautyLuLu*s How-To: Sunkissed Summer Gold Eyeshadow Tutorial

While a hot bikini, tanning lotion, and a delicious cocktail are definite pool-side must-haves, we have one more summer essential to tack onto your list: gold eyeshadow! When paired with a warm toned shadow, a golden eyeshadow can easily brighten the eyes all while creating a perfectly sunkissed look to complement your summer glow! Follow our steps below to make this look your own!

Sunkissed Summer Gold Eyeshadow

Steps:

1. Create the base using a matte nude colored eyeshadow within the crease of the lid and outer corner.

2. Use a bright, shimmery gold eyeshadow for the perfect sunkissed glow.

3. Apply a matte beige eyeshadow to the brow bone. Blend this color into the base shadow to soften the shape.

4. Carefully line the upper lash line using dark brown eyeshadow. (You can use black liner for a more dramatic look!)

5. Finish by adding a hint of champagne shimmery eyeshadow to the inner corner of the eye to create a pop!
