Whenever I’m having a hard time coming up with new styles I always resort to doubling up past tutorials. Double dutch braids, double fishtail braids, you name it.

Today’s look is a new favorite and something I haven’t seen done before so hopefully it’s new to you too! Let me know what you think! Thanks so much for reading. xo, Missy

If you recently saw my Lioness Halloween Hairstyle then today I’m excited to be sharing the makeup from that video.

I used a bunch of different shades to achieve this makeup look so if you’re new to makeup you could easily use one eyeshadow and finish with the liner.  I think the real effect is bringing the black liner in towards the nose on the lower lash line along with the detailing around the nose and mouth.

Even if you don’t plan to dress up for Halloween, I hope you enjoy this tutorial. Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy

Who’s ready for another Halloween tutorial? There are so many costumes that focus on the makeup so for today’s video I wanted to create a hairstyle that matched the costume too.

Lions are the ‘King of the Jungle,’ right? What better way to make a crown for a Lioness than with a half up Dutch braid? I especially love the really tight curls and think they take the lion mane up a notch. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below! Thanks so much for watching! xoxo, Missy

Lioness Half Up Crown Braid Instructions:

  • Step 1 / Start by curling small sections of hair with a 1/2″ curling wand, starting at the nape of neck and working up to the top of the head.

  • Step 3 / Begin a dutch braid by crossing the right strand under the middle and then crossing the left strand under the middle.
  • Step 4 / Then cross the right strand under the middle, pick up a new section and cross it under and into the middle strand.

Here’s the makeup tutorial for the Galaxy Girl Glitter Buns that I recently posted.

I thought this makeup would be hard to recreate but it’s actually pretty simple if you take the time to blend it all out. The most difficult part was gluing the glitter to my skin because it kind of clumped up so I highly recommend using white paint or eyeliner to draw on the constellations.

Also, I wish I’d used some temporary pink or blue hair dye so consider that as an option if you decide to recreate this costume! Happy Haunting! Thank you so much for watching! xoxo, Missy

Happy October! It’s already sweater weather around here and it actually makes me really nervous for winter, lol. I’ve been stocking up on sweaters and love the texture detail of this one. I bought it one size up so it’d fit a little looser and it’s sooo cozy!

Over the weekend my younger brother got married. It was a beautiful celebration and a ton of work but it was so fun to catch up with the relatives that came. I’m always the most grateful for family during these types of get-togethers.

My brother’s fiancé (now wife) asked me to do her hair. She wanted a simple, beautiful low bun and I loved the way it turned out. I wasn’t able to get any good pictures of it so maybe once she gets the pictures from the photographer, I’ll be able to get a copy of it.
