Hair & Makeup by Kahlia Adams


1. Find your part and section your hair into two
2. Fishtail braid both sides
3. Twist/position both braids into each other and onto one side
4. Bobby pin the crap out of it.
5. Finish the look with a hair gem like this Large Leaf Hair Comb c/o Cinder and Sage


Inspired by the cobalt cat eye trend seen on the Fall 2012 runways, we decided
that a special occasion called for something very beautiful and dramatic.
Starting with Mac paint eye primer (as a base for long lasting eye makeup), Kahlia
 then mixed different blue hues from the Dior eye palettes.  Adding the 24 hour-wear YSL
 eyeliner and Dior Mascara, we went for a natural glow on the rest of the face.
Lips were also kept neutral in order to keep the focus on the eyes.

  1. Oh wow Alicia your hair and make up look stunning!! I think the eye shadow with the blue grey hues really make your raven coloured hair stand out.

  2. Beautiful. Oh you have to do a video tutorial on your up-do :)

  4. I like how "Bobby pin the crap out of it." is a hair styling instruction :)

    1. That's just my hair expertise shining through ;) But seriously, my hair rejects bobby pins like crazy, so it always requires a ton of pins in order to get a couple to stay in place.

  5. Wowzers! Beautiful makeup and hair...especially that gold comb. I'm going shopping now, thanks for enabling!


  6. You look absolutely gorgeous! Your hair and make-up are stunning!
