I could say more but I’ll just let this image speak for itself. Absolutely stunning.
HAIRSTYLE TIPS AND TRICKS
For anyone in search of interesting ways to achieve wavy hair or a braided updo, look no further than this video from She Lets Her Hair Down.
Featured is a unique spin on the wave utilizing simple strips of cloth, hairspray, a little heat, and some air drying. As you can see from the last shot in the video, the finished looks are quite stunning.
Looks like I have a few new hairstyles to attempt this summer.

REFLECTIONS ON BEAUTY:
DOVE’S “REAL BEAUTY SKETCHES”
Dove has yet again created a truly moving video showcasing how warped people perceive themselves on a physical level. With the help of a forensic artist, the sketches created display such a dramatic difference between the women’s descriptions of themselves and the descriptions provided from people they met. The first sketch was a more brutal depiction highlighting the minor flaws we are all guilty of obsessing over while the second sketches were not only more accurate, but also made some of the women realize their flaws are not as prominent as they seem.
I continuously applaud Dove for continuing their campaign towards changing the perception of beauty in our society and look forward to seeing what they release next.
Some lash inspiration sure to turn a head or two…or twenty.

I’m currently incredibly behind on everything related to FW13 RTW collections. As I take the next week or so finally catching up, here’s a bit of makeup inspiration from the Atelier Versace Spring 2013 Couture show.
Another incredible beauty look created by Pat McGrath shown here on model Joan Smalls. The pop of neon green is a lovely accent to the smokey eye she created on the models.
