I know very little about hair and makeup, and I have to confess that I get overwhelmed every time I enter a beauty and makeup store like Sephora. This is why I prefer to get my beauty products from the nearest pharmacy —not too many options and it fits my budget. Although I avoid wearing makeup on a daily basis and my hair is always a mess, when it comes down to getting all dressed up, I enjoy the makeup/hairdressing process as much as I enjoy selecting the perfect outfit; it is pure satisfaction. I have been doing my hair and makeup for as long as I can remember without any help (okay, maybe some Youtube help, but that's it), and suddenly I found myself doing all of my friends' styling before going out. It just came natural to me.
I recently discovered the magic of mousse; you put it on your hand, watch it grow into a snowball, and then you spread it all over your hair to style it however you want. It's pretty fun and effective. Now I find myself wearing it almost every day to achieve a perfect bun or ponytail that lasts even after my soccer practice. In these pictures, I just applied the mousse to nicely emphasize the waves of my hair, and then did my usual side-part hairstyle to score a glamorous look.
When it comes to my makeup, I like simplicity. Since my eyelid is practically not visible, wearing too much eye shadow is almost non sense. That's why the majority of the time I choose a cat-eye instead, which make my eyes look bigger. This time, I did a faded smoky eye and managed to add a dramatic flare to the look with a bold lipstick as per usual.
So, this is what I call my "Fall's Classic Look".
