shine baby, shine

So I've really gotten into the holiday spirit this year and in turn have a  sliiiiight obsession with metallics now. Enter: the metallic leather legging. When paired with all black, this legging is surprisingly easy to wear and gets all the compliments. At first glance in the store they seem waaay out of my comfort zone but once I thought of ways to style the options are pretty much endless. Who knew metallic leather could play as a neutral?

Q: Rose gold lids are an unexpected metallic pop and perfect for the holidays. Do you have any tips for keeping eye shadow from going everywhere when applying?
A: I'm obsessed with rose gold. For this I actually used this gel liner pencil all over the lid and just blended out the edges, no shadow needed! Try doing your eyes first before starting the rest of your makeup, then you can clean up any fallout.

Q: Favorite hair products for achieving a bedhead look?
A: Texture sprays are your best friend (not to be confused with dry shampoo). Oribe "dry texture spray," R+Co "death valley texture spray" and Bumble & Bumble "thickening dry spun."

Q: Tips for textured hair? I LOVE how you gave my hair the perfect amount of bend. I always seem to overdo it when I try myself and it comes out way to wavy and "done."
A: Clean hair is your enemy if you're going for a textured look. Also, use two different sized irons to get that lived in look.
