New hair, glitter eyes and Vo5

September 17, 2012

I just wanted to write a quick post to show off my new blonde bob which I just got recently done, my hair was in long need of cutting off the back layers. I have been trying to grow it but I figured it would look a lot better just cutting off all the dead-end bits. Plus I always have my extensions for long, long hair days!

As you may or may not know I am a finalist in the Cosmopolitan Vo5 Street Style competition, where the winner will win an award at the Cosmo Women of the Year awards. The final judging takes place this Thursday so I am very excited and been planning my outfit and make-up etc.  To my surprise last week Vo5 sent me these goodie bags full of products to try out.

My favourite already is the dry texturising spray, which is so good for a sexy messed up tousled look.  I am always straightening my hair and find it hard to get some perfect waves, even though my hair is wavy, go figure! So this is perfect, it is sort of like dry shampoo when you spray it on, but got an added sea salt bonus which gives the tousled effect. I had a play about it with it and tried to create some uber volume. Check it out below and my new Twiggy bob.

I also experimented with my eyes for make-up, I wanted to try the Nars palette I got free in my goodie bag at the Westfield fashion show so here is the result. I started with a gold base, black in the inner corner, then also added a MAC glitter effect powder, what do you think?

Wish me luck for Thursday and I’ll let you all know how it goes.
