BEAUTY BAR: Feelin' Edgy

When I stumbled upon this Fashionista today in SoHo, I had the realization that although we can all express ourselves through our outfits, our hairstyles and makeup says a lot about us as people too.

A hairstyle is a wonderful way to express one’s individuality as it tends to be the first aspect of one’s look that people pay attention to. Thus, a hairstyle can define a person’s style/attitude for the rest of the world to see. In this case, this Fashionista expresses herself and her individuality with a punk-edgy hairstyle: one side of her hair shaved off with racing stripes and dip-dyed ends.

In addition to hairstyles, makeup is a form of self-expression that this Fashionista used to her disposal as well, defining her punk-edgy look. Her liner drawn-wings are an edgy makeup trend that calls attention to her eyes. To make a winged look with your liner, draw it across your eyelids as thick as you want, and when you reach the corners slightly swoop the brush up. If you would like another explanation, I recommend that you watch this how-to video.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: You can copy her hairstyle by going to your hairstylist and showing them this exact look and if you feel like dip-dying your hair at home to complete the look, check out this link that offers you step-by-step instructions . Additionally, I recommend these websites for Manic Panic dyes and Revlon dyes for tips and all of your hair-dying needs. If you do not see yourself with an edgy look, discover your own! Here are some ideas. No matter your age, it is never too late to start trying new looks! . To get this look with eye-liner, I recommend using ‘Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner’ because it is long-lasting and self-sharpens for a clean finish every time. Again, if you think that this make-up trend would not suit you well, there are many more looks out there, you just have to find the right ones that work for you, and it all starts with some research! Here, I even started for you!
