EASY HOLIDAY EYE MAKEUP

There’s been a lot of vlogs on LadyCode lately because I’ve constantly been on the go, and rather that ghosting off LadyCode while I’m away traveling, I thought I would take you with me so we can stay in touch! I hope the vlogs are as enjoyable as my beauty videos!

Today I created a frosty/warm look that I decided to name SLAY BELLES (get it? lol).

Here is the full easy holiday makeup tutorial:

Goldiluxe Hair Extensions Review | Unboxing | Try On

Hair extensions are one of the things I can’t live without. After losing a TON of my hair to damage from going blonde (and then dying it back), hair extensions give me the length and density I want, along with a side of CONFIDENCE!

Goldiluxe hair extensions is a new line of extensions and they are unique because they have a tape style weft, which makes them lay flat at the roots for a natural attachment.

Watch the hair extension review video below for the full review:

Goldiluxe was generous enough to provide a discount code for us girls in LadyCode! The code is: LADYCODE for $10 off your purchase! You can learn more about Goldiluxe extenions here: https://goldiluxehair.com

I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday!

JAPAN Fashion & Makeup Haul!! Harajuku, Shibuya, Tokyo, Osaka & More!!

Last week, I was in Japan and if there is one thing for a girl to do in Japan, its SHOP! My little sister lives in Tokyo and she took me to so many amazing stores! Since I got a ton of cute stuff, I decided to share my finds with you in the haul video below!

I love love love this hoodie dress from Rasvoa! It’s definitely my favorite thing to wear right now. 

My hairstyle for the video was inspired by Japan, and I recreated it with my own twist! Here is the full tutorial:

LIFE UPDATE: From Japan we went straight to LA for a day and then stopped in Las Vegas for Miss Universe for less than 24 hours! One of my jobs is hosting for PageantLIVE and I had so much fun interviewing the VIP’s in the pageant world. Let me know if you want to see a Miss Universe VLOG!  I’m still struggling with jet lag and I’m barely keeping up! It’s literally been one thing after another because I spent the weekend in Atlanta shooting for Crowned Pageantry Magazine. This weekend, I’ll be going to Daytona Beach to host VivaLuxe’s Hooked on Fashion show and I’m super excited because I’ll be showing my Vizcaya Swimwear designs too! I hope to see some of my LadyCode sisters in Daytona 🙂

I hope you had an amazing weekend! Let me know what you think of my haul in the comments below!

How to Style a Sleek Middle Part with Straight Hair + Full Product List

Hey babes!

I hope you’re enjoying my hair tutorials! I love my new black hair and I’m having so much fun styling it. I’ve learned some tricks along the way that I’m going to share with you along with some products I can’t live without.

Here is the full tutorial on how to style a sleek middle part with straight hair:

Okay, so now that you have all the tips, here are my favorite products that I use to keep my hair sleek and healthy!

Products mentioned: Click on the images below to shop

Bumble and Bumble Save the Day Daytime Repair Fluid

Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Hair Mask 

T3 Micro Singlepass Luxe 

Hair brush used is the boar bristle hairbrush from Sephora 

Ouai Memory Mist Heat Protectant

I’m also taking HUM Nutrition’s new Hair Sweet Hair supplements to help me grow my hair! These supplements taste AMAZING and they are Vegan, which I love since my seafood allergy prevents me from taking other hair supplements!

 

 

How to Create a Sleek High Ponytail with Volume || Clip In Hair Extensions

I’ve always loved the way a sleek, full high ponytail looks but I never tried the look on myself because I used to be insecure about my thin hair and crazy, uncontrollable hairline. I used to fill in my hairline with eyeshadow but I recently discovered an easier trick to conceal a thin hairline using root concealer spray or hair building fiber spray. Thanks to this trick and my hair extensions I can finally wear this look and feel 100% confident! I’ve been wearing this look for my major events so I wanted to film a tutorial showing exactly how I work the extensions in. I hope you try this look too!

PRODUCTS USED:

Rita Hazan Root Concealer Spray – Sephora
Toppik Hair Thickening Spray – Toppik.com
OUAI Rose Hair and Body Oil – Sephora
Hair Secrets Clip in Hair Extensions – hairsecretextensions.com
Hairspray
Bobby Pins 
2-3 Hair Ties
Hair brush

 

If you have struggled with thin/fine hair or wierdo hair lines like me, try these other ladycode videos and tutorials for more tips on how to feel 100% confident by creating the illusion of thicker, fuller hair!

How to make hair look fuller (use this technique only for special events-it is verry rough on your hair!)

Hair Secrets Extensions review/demo:

Best/worst hair extensions:

Update: Since I dyed my hair back to black I’m so happy to be using the Hair Secrets extensions again, I also got the Hidden Crown Extensions in my hair color and it is A-MAZING! I use the Hidden Crown halo style for my every day use!

MAJOR FALL 2017 ANTI-HAUL: Products I am NOT purchasing

I skipped out on a LOT of makeup palettes recently including the Huda Beauty DESERT DUSK, Kylie Cosmetics PURPLE PALETTE, and the Fenty Beauty GALAXY palette. Watch the anti haul video below to find out why along with some great alternatives that I absolutely LOVE right now!

Products I regret buying this year:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette

I thought I loved this palette at first but as I used it I realized that the product is chalky and the fallout is abnormally excessive. It is not worth the $42 and I’m so sad because I used to love Anastasia Beverly Hills.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism Palette

This was the second palette from ABH that arrived broken! I got a replacement and did this review:

The colors are bland and the black was TERRIBLE! There was no pigment and I have not used this palette since I filmed the tutorial. ugh.

Kylie Take Me On Vacation Palette

This palette was a major waste of money. I ended up sending this to one of my subscribers because it was not for me. I think the colors were too light and transparent, and at this point I am just over Kylie Cosmetics in general.

MY FAVORITE BEAUTY PRODUCTS RIGHT NOW:

My ride or die palette right now is the Morphe 35o 2 Second Nature palette. The colors are so pigmented it is unreal and they blend like butter! I can’t live without this palette

I also love:

Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet in Fawn (no.5)

Kevyn Aucoin The Molten Lip Color in Rose Gold

Ardell Beauty Brow Pens and Liquid Lip Liners

Fenty Beauty Foundation and contour sticks

Cover FX Translucent powder
