Side Braid Hairstyle + Smokey Eye Makeup. I wanted to switch things up a little this holiday season. I decided to try out a new hairstyle on my natural hair. And we all know, once your hair is on point, you need some makeup to pull everything together.
This is my Smokey Sleek makeup and hair look that was featured on Remington’s blog. For my makeup look, I used Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar eyeshadow palette. I used the color Peanut butter for the transition color. Then I used KaT von D Ink eyeliner in color trooper for the base of my smokey eye. Next I applied color Licorice from the Semi-sweet chocolate bar. I then took a clean blending brush and blended the black eyeshadow really well. bringing the color a little above my crease. I put on my black eyeliner and lined my lash line with the black eyeshawdow as well. I lined my lips with a black lipliner and applied KAT von D Everlasting lipstick in color Lolita.
After the makeup is all finished I moved on to the hair. To achieve my hairstyle I am using the T-Studio Protect Flat-iron. This flat-iron has 1 inch plate, adjustable temperature and has vapor infusion technology. It comes with the Macadamia condition treatment which going into the compartment on the back of the flat iron.
I straightened my head with the flat-iron. This flat iron is like no other I’ve tried. The vapor makes my hair feel so soft afterwards and I can get it nice a straight with just one pass.
Once my hair was straightened, I sectioned off the side, applied Silk Elements edge control, then did a french braid. I only braided the section half way, then secured it with two bobby pins.
