Don't have TEA BISCUIT? Try.. MAC's Phloof, and even some colours on the 88 palette.
Don't have SUN BLONDE? Try.. Nars Mangrove, MAC's Jasmine, MAC's Going Bananas
Don't have SASSY GRASS? Try.. NYX Cosmetic's Lake Algae, & the bright green shade on the 88 Palette.
What You Will Need: 3 elastics (or more), a comb, volumizing hairspray (optional), bobbi pins (optional).
(Apologies for the colour weirdness in this picture, it was a little out of focus and flash was being weird.)
If you want less whispyness, use the bobbi pins to pin up any extra hair. Also, if you feel it's necessary, use a volumizing spray to bump up the volume. I personally didn't use either things!
Then tease the rest of your ponytail AGAIN just to add more bubbly-ness to the last bubble.
If you have enough hair, go for another bubble! But don't forgot to tease your hair even more.
This look is VERY versatile, believe it or not! I rock this look with super blunt bangs that hang down over my eyebrows.

The inspiration came to me last night when I posted a beautiful picture of model Dree Hemingway to my Facebook Page. She had gorgeous eye makeup that reminded me of my Constellations makeup look, but another thing that caught my eye was her beautifully braided hair. I've posted the image below for you all to check out. HAIRSTYLES COMING SOON!
"Shu Uemura is a unique and vibrant brand, but it represents a very small part of our luxury business," said Carol Hamilton, president of L'Oréal USA's luxury division, in a statement. "We decided that L'Oréal USA would be better served by focusing on our other strategic luxury brands like Lancôme, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Kiehl's and fragrances."
Because L'Oréal USA declined to disclose sales numbers for specific brands, it's not clear how Shu Uemura sales compared to those of other L'Oréal-owned luxury brands." Read the full story here...

MAC Cosmetic's Surf the Ocean Crushed Metallic Pigment Stack Review, Pictures, and Swatches (Picture Heavy)
Please Read: I am not paid by any cosmetic companies to review any of these products. Everything I review is bought by me, and I will always give a %100 honest review.
- Packaging: These pigments come in 2 different stacks, with 2 shades per stack. They come in clear tube stacks with twist on caps. Each stack is about 2.5 times larger than a regular MAC Pigment, so you're getting a really good deal on these. The regular pigments are $23.50 each (that's $94.00 in total for all four), and all four of these pigments only cost $38.50. So you're getting a pretty good deal on these shades when you buy these.
- Product: These pigments are described as “frosty platinum, light yellow green, gold bronze, and dirty graphite with silver pearl.” Each individual shade doesn't have a name. Each of these shades are highly pigmented, and long-lasting. Although it's not necessary, the colours work better when applied wet, or mixed with a mixing medium.
- Stack 1 / Shade 1: is a metallic bronzy-gold shade. In the pot, this shade looks like gold nuggets. See picture 2.
- Stack 1 / Shade 2: is an iridescent, silvery, seafoam green.
- Stack 2 / Shade 1: is a darkened navy blue shade with teal/blue shimmer.
- Stack 2 / Shade 2: is a medium metallic silver/grey shade.
- Final Thoughts: These look amazing! The colours are so fun and pretty. You get an amazing deal when you buy this pigment stack, and I think this is the most impressive thing MAC has released in a long time. This is definitely worth buying, it's limited edition so GO BUY IT WHILE ITS IN STOCK! It's already sold out on the Canadian MAC website, but you could try MACcosmetics.com!
- Availability: $38.50 @ MAC Cosmetics
