Summer Routine Insta-Video

June 30, 2017

Hey loves!  I shared a quick summer routine video on instagram this morning ☀️, you can watch it here if you haven’t seen it yet, and I thought it’d be easier to link everything I was using in the tutorial on the blog vs the IG description.  The shirt I’m wearing is from ASOS but it’s sold out in most sizes.  I’ll keep an eye out to see if they restock but until then I’ve linked up a few other embroidered faves below:

Here are some other outfit details: and the robe I was wearing in the video is from Poppy and Dot!

And onto the hair and makeup!  I’ve literally worn this dutch side braid every day for weeks now.  It’s just so easy to style, I get so many compliments on it and if I sleep in it I wake up with the prettiest waves!  I just published a new tutorial for it here if you want to check it out!

I’m wearing Caramel Apple LipSense in these pictures and it’s actually in stock!  If you’d like to snag some, email me at twistmeprettylips {@}  JULY4 will get you 10% off and free shipping!! 

Onto the makeup details:

For the Face:
Moisturizer: Olay Complete
Foundation: Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation
Concealer (to highlight under eyes): Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
Contour: Smashbox Contour Stick (my all time favorite contour)
Highlight: Pur Strobe Palette
Blush: IT cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow
Setting Powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Powder
LipSense: Caramel Apple – email me!

For the Eyes:
I used Stila Kitten as the base, and then I just bought several Colour Pop shadows and I’m in LOVE with them!!!!  They’re only $4 too, so you definitely need to snag some.  I used beach blanket as the transition color, cloud nine and boxer in the crease and then ready or yacht right below my brows.  I just bought several more to see if I can’t find a good Kitten dupe, because if I can find one for $4 instead of $18?  I’m sold haha!
Eye Liner: Sigma Gel Eyeliner
IT cosmetics mascara
IT cosmetics eyebrow pencil

Let me know if you guys have any questions.  I know the video was fast!  I’ll be working on a makeup video for YouTube soon so stay tuned!  Any specific looks you want to see?!

    Is the tutorial for your side dutch braid the same braid you used in the insta video? It looks like you just continued the dutch braid in the insta video and in the side braid dutch tutorial you tied it in with a regular braid? I’ve tried to copy this side braid, but I’m having trouble braiding along the back (it’s like braid dyslexia or something and comes out twisted). HELP?!

    So, 2 questions. 1. I can do the dutch braid, but I really struggle keeping it close to my face and not going back towards the back of my head. Suggestions? 2. My hair isn’t as long as yours, so when I finish, I only have like 3 or 4 inches of braid that just barely hits my shoulder. Suggestions on how to finish it off? I usually do some sort of bun.

    I walked into Ulta and handed the salesperson my phone and she walked me around the entire store putting items in the bag for me. We had a blast haha. So thankful for your knowledge of makeup. Is there a certain product you use in your hair to keep the braid from frizzing? 💜
