Elegantly simple!

Monday, 11 May 2015

Honestly, I had no plan when I was doing my hair this day. I just started braiding and ended up with this and I was really happy with it. I did a complete (half-french) braid around my head and continued all the way down the length of my hair and with the little extra that I didn't add into the braid, I braided that piece separate and twisted both braids together in this bun.

HAIR : 

Then, of course, I thought that this was the perfect opportunity to do my makeup because as I said before, I haven't worn makeup in a while and kept it pretty simple. I decided to do something that was more subtle but noticeable. This is probably my go to makeup look when I do my makeup.

MAKEUP LOOK: 


I don't often go with a pink lip but I felt it was perfect with this hair and makeup creating a more softer look. I wanted this look to be all about the hair really so I went for a very simple look with my outfit. A cropped grey tank and a pair of dark high waisted denim jeans and a statement necklace so it isn't too boring. I just felt like that was enough. I feel like with this simple look, it makes the hair look more wearable for a casual everyday look, if that makes since. 

OUTFIT

And, that's my complete look.

  13. Oh, what a lovely look indeed. I have never had much luck with braiding my own hair, it always ends up as a mess, not even a hot mess but just a horrible mess. LOL
