BEAUTY BAR: Top O' The Knot To Ya

October 5th, 2015 at 2:00am

With fall starting to really settle in and the autumnal breeze blowing through the air, school begins to kick into full force. Life can sometimes get a bit hectic when you’ve got a biology test at 11:00 a.m., lunch with friends at 12:30 p.m. and a psych lecture at 3:00 p.m., leaving very little time to create some extravagant and detailed outfits and looks. Don’t fret! This Fashionista has a super chic, long-lasting hair and makeup combo that puts her best face forward to tackle her busy days while also not taking up too much time to achieve.

When school days are long and schedules are crazy, the last thing you want to do is spend a lot of time on a hairstyle that will fall flat or unwind throughout the day. This half-up, half-down bun is stylish, quick and easy. This look keeps your hair out of your face, so there is no need to fidget and fuss with your hair throughout the day. It adds a nice finishing touch to any outfit while also not requiring a lot of skill or time. If you want to fancy it up, you can. Curl the half-down portion of hair or add a decorative clip or pin in your bun.

This Fashionista took her beauty look a step further and added a dark cherry lip color. The lip color adds a nice pop of color to her simple beauty look while complementing her cool toned, fall outfit color palette.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look, section out the top section of hair on the crown of your head. Run some styling or texturizing cream through the section of hair, and then twist it into a topknot, securing it with an elastic and/or hairpins. For makeup, use a wine or cherry toned lip stain to add a autumnal note to your makeup that will last all day long. Keep the rest of the makeup simple, as to not detract from your killer bun and lip combo!
