The 7 Sins of a Smokey Eye

Sin #1: Naked Lids I come to you as a sinner myself. I too have applied shadow without primer.

Another Victoria’s Secret

Ok so after I saw the VS fashion show this year, of course, I started stalking youtube for BACKSTAGE clips. I saw that they used this technique on the models hair and I tried and LOVED it. Then… whilst searching for some hot inspiration I ran across a photo of Miss Marisa Miller. Her hair looks incredible. After some experimenting I realized the same technique was used to create her look. I am telling you I am obsessed with this hair right now! The volume is unreal. I am not super excited about being in a photo next to her gorgeousness so..please be kind and focus on the hair… I offer you this tutorial as an apology for my absentness...
