So my friend was going to the Athletics Union Ball at our uni and asked me whether I could do her hair and makeup (or maybe I forced myself onto her a little bit? ;-)) The result you can see above!

For her makeup, I didn’t want it to be too much – she was wearing a red dress and she normally doesn’t really wear makeup, so I worked with gold and brown tones! I just warmed up her cheeks a little bit with a mineralize blush and a golden-toned highlighter. She has beautifully shaped, high cheekbones! They deserve to come out! And I gave her a bit of a glow, so I lightly dusted some highlighter powder all over her face too.

For her hair, which is super fine, soft, sleek, poker straight and incredibly difficult to work with for someone like me who only knows how to style curls and straightened hair with originally curly hair texture [aaaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!] , we didn’t have a plan. We originally tried using my big curling tong by WAHL, but it’s just crap [after 5 min it still wasn't warmed up fully! I don' have the time for that kind of crap, I'm way too impatient for that!].

So I just picked up the top half of her hair and tied it into a messy knot, which I pinned down with bobby pins. And then I just kind of wrapped the bottom half around that knot and pinned that down too. Some strands fell out, some we pinned back in and then I fixated with a ton of hair spray! I’m actually really proud with the outcome of that hairdo!

Doesn’t she look lovely? Also – doesn’t she have the longest lashes in the history of the world?! Let me know what you think of her makeup and hair – feedback is always welcome – but you know that!!
