HOLIDAY GLAM | Hair & Makeup Tutorial

It's alllllmost Christmas and I have been taking advantage of the season in my makeup routine as much as possible. Of course, it's standard fare to have red lips and a little sparkle, but I punched up the look with orange undertones and a braided twist! Bending the rules a little will make you stand out from the crowd so it's always exciting to try something a little different, am I right?

Here's my holiday tutorial for 2014! Hope you enjoy! Video and more photos after the jump. :)

Holiday Gatsby Style

I'm going to share a little secret with you. I didn't watch The Great Gatsby up until recently and it wasn't a re-run at the theater or even on a nice flat screen tv. It was a freebie on an airplane. Shameful, I know. But better late than never!

Being a huge fan of Baz Luhrman, it's a wonder it took me so long to soak in the glitz and glamour of the roaring 20's but boy was this movie stunning or what?! I mean, seriously. There's just so much visual inspiration to pull from here and my heart has been stuck with the idea since.

With my birthday coming up this weekend (December 14th! Woo!), I knew I wanted to have a Gatsby-themed party. (If you follow my 2nd channel From Jen on Youtube you'll get to catch a glimpse of during Vlogmas since I'm vlogging everyday until Christmas. Lots of no-makeup Jen and onesies over there.) so I wanted to share a bit of fashion eye-candy that I've been getting googly-eyed over.

Whether you are attending a 20's themed fete or just want to look extra glamorous for a holiday party, here are some gorgeous (and modern) dresses and accessories to consider:

Readers, do you have a particular style in mind for the holidays? What do you think of 20's style? I'd love to hear what you think in the comments!

TUTORIAL | How To Fake Short Hair (Faux Bob)

Hey guys! I'm taking a break from my diligent and incessant search of kitchen faucets* to bring you a fun hair tutorial if you're wanting to play around with a new look. *Seriously, there are so many metal finishes I never considered and the kitchen reno JUST BEGAN and has already taken over my life and eardrums.

New life change? CHOP IT OFF! That may be your gut reaction, but there's no need to weep whilst grasping disembodied strands on the salon floor. Just test out the look to see if you love it first. ;)

Video tutorial and 360° pics below!
