It's That Time Again | Prom Hair


So I believe prom season is coming up, as is graduation or a leaving ball if you’re still in education. If not then there’s always weddings, girls night, festivals and numerous other fun events that seem to take over summer. 
If you’re struggling for an easy up do to wear to one of these dates, then I’ve got you covered! This little up do is quick and easily personalised as you can wear it loose and messy or neat and formal. Either way, it looks like you’ve spent way more time on it than you actually did!

 Please check it out and let me know what you think :)

GRWM Gig Makeup | Brand New | Manchester 18th April 2014

Happy 1st of May!

So a couple of weeks ago I went to see Brand New perform in Manchester and it was Amazing! I’ve seen them once before and that was a truly epic gig, and this second time was no disappointment. Now I may be slightly bias as they are my favourite band, but I feel that it was an incredible experience regardless. There’s just something about being in room, tightly packed, with others who share your love for the same music. The atmosphere is so exciting at a gig or concert, you’re hearing/seeing songs you love being brought to life in front of you, and they sound 10x times better. 
I had all the feels.

Anyway, I filmed a GRWM video for the gig because I think it can be a confusing time in terms of face, hair and fashion. 

My rules I stick to are:

Hair – Tied up because it gets really hot

Face – Go all or none because it’s going to get sweaty

Fashion – Light layers you can strip off and tie around you or roll up in your bag

Accessories – Nothing that will accidentally attach to others, and a smallish cross body bag or just use your pockets

Here’s my first video of my face that night, it’s nothing complex, just primers and layering of products to make them stick! I'd love to hear tips and tricks too :]


P.S Here’s a video of Jesse Lacey serenading me with “The Boy who Blocked his own Shot” ... You’re welcome, even though it's wobbly and looks like it was filmed on a potato! x
