GET THE LOOK: ANGLE BED HAIR & MODERN MARILYN MAKEUP TUTORIAL


 

Victorias_Secret_bed_Hair_How-to_Maxmade.com.au

What happens when you blend two iconic looks, like a Marilyn Monroe feline flick and Victoria’s Secret angel bed-hair. You get one ‘major’ look!

Two of the most requested looks I get asked how to re-create is by far the feline flick and that signature, voluminous, VS, bombshell hair! Which is kind of interesting cause without fail when talking products, the two most asked about ‘must-haves’ in my kit are always what liquid liner and volumizing sprays I use.

There is no denying these two looks as some of my all-time favourite looks not only to re-create but like you, to swoon over when flicking through fashion mags/books and the internet. There is just something about both that can draw you in and make you feel all warm and fuzzy imagining what it you would look like tossing those big messy waves around or batting those cat-like eyes… or rather in my case, what it would be like creating either of the looks on beauty icons like Marilyn, Kate, Sophia, Bridgette & Rosie that made and continue to make both these looks so ‘god-damn’ desirable!

So, to celebrate my (and your) obsession, I have combined the two looks together in this step-by-step tutorial outlining the exact products I used and even tailoring a few of the steps to maximise your results and make it easier when doing it yourself.

Now to release your inner bombshell!

Sexy Angel Bed Hair Tutorial

Step 1

Start by parting your hair onto the side it parts or sits the best. Section the hair into 4 parts making it easier to work on individual sections rather than it all at once. My sections consist of the area in front of each of the ears and straight down the centre of the back of your head!

Step 2

I like to use a Oribe’s Curl Shaping Mousse when creating this sort of volume and texture! Other than the fact a mousse is more multi-talented in the way it will create volume and texture without weighing the hair down. If your hair is a little stubborn and needs extra help on the root area to create volume you can layer the mouse with Oribe’s Volumista Mist for Volume and spritz it directly on the roots of each section before applying the mouse. Note; Once you have applied the product to each section, blow dry your hair with a paddle brush. It is much easier to hold the hair in the bristles of a paddle and less likely you will over stretch or heat your hair! 

Step 3

After you finish blow drying, section your hair back in the original section we broke it up in to before blow drying. Working your way up each of the 4 sections, break a two inch block of hair an lightly spray it with Oribe’s Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray before rolling the hair around two or 3 fingers (3 fingers for curlier hair and 2 for straighter hair) before clamping it in your GHD Eclipse Flat Iron. I tend to hold the curl clamped in the iron for around 5-10 seconds before releasing. Pin each curl to your head with a Fringe Pin and allow to cool. NoteRepeat through the remainder of the sections till it’s all done. 

Step 4

Using the time it takes for your hair to fully cool, setting each of the curls in place, start your makeup!

Step 5

After you have completed your makeup… Un-pin each of the curls – starting from the bottom section and working your way up. Give your hair a light spray with label.m Hair Spray. I use this particular hair spray as it has a good hold minus the weight or tackiness of most sprays. To break the curls up and create an un-done look to your curls, flip your head over and using your fingers rack them through your hair breaking the curls up. TipTo give hair extra volume and texture try spraying through label.m Texturing Volume Spray before flipping your head over. Combining the texturing benefits of a dry shampoo and the hold of a hairspay this is the ultimate product for instant volume and texture!   

To finish… flip your head up-right and lightly run your fingers through your hair going away from your face – flicking all the hair over your shoulders and down your back. This will help put the hair in place opening the face up! Now, simply add wings and you’re good to go!

Ellis Faas Creamy Lips in Deep Fuchsia

Will I ever grow tired of using or recommending these amazing, long wearing, creamy colours By Ellis Fass? Probably not! Wear them as a bold full coverage lipstick or like I did and dab the colour onto the lips using the sponge-like tip applicator for a more youthful flush of stain-like colour.
