BeautyLuLu*s How-To: Natural Eye Makeup Tutorial

RushWeekBannerfinal

Recruitment is not the time to show off your costume makeup skills. During rush it’s best to keep it fresh and natural and let your true beauty shine through! Our natural eye makeup tutorial is the perfect way to look polished, beautiful and totally you!

EyeMakeup

1.) Start with your lightest eye-shadow in white or cream color concentrating on the inner lid.
2.) Using an angled shadow brush, choose a golden coral eye-shadow above the crease moving from the middle to the outer lid.
3.) Choose a pointed shadow brush to pull a matte hazelnut brown color just through the crease of the lid.
4.) Gently blend the 3 colors.
5.) Line the upper lash line with a chocolate brown shadow using a fine point liner brush.
6.) With the same dark brown shadow, lightly smudge the outer upper lid to create definition.
7.) Using the same brush and technique as Step 5, line the outer lower lash line.
8.) for a little more dramatic look, smudge the upper lash line with black shadow.
Finish the look with 2 fresh coats of mascara and voila! A beautiful natural makeup look to wear to any occasion!

BeautyLuLu*s How-To: The Knotted Side Pony

RushWeekBannerfinal

When it comes to Rush, first impressions are everything. For hair, we recommend keeping it classic. Although the goal is to stand out, going over the top is a definite don’t. We turned to our hair gurus in the studio for assistance, and they came up with the perfect collegiate coif!  Rush can be chaotic, so having your hair tucked away is key. The knotted side pony is easy, neat and totally schoolgirl chic. Follow the steps below and you’ll be going Greek in no time!

NiceAndKnotty

Step-by-step:

1. Separate the hair into two sections. Pull the back section towards the front and hold down.
2. Loop the front section around the back and pull the hair into a simple knot.
3. Double knot the braid and pull tight.
4. Secure with an elastic hair tie and pull it under the knot to conceal.
5. Use a bobby pin to secure the hair into place.
6. Use a comb to settle the pony and voila!
