5 Minute Simple Updo on Dirty Hair

This is my go-to dirty hairstyle!  Perfect for day 4 hair and beyond.  People will think you spent a ton of time on it but really the hairstyle took 5 minutes. The hairstyle hack of tucking loose ends into elastic is a lifesaver when bobby pins cannot be found. This hairstyle works great for greasy roots as it helps keep the braid secure.

If you are avoiding dry shampoo, just fluff up your roots a little bit. This just helps create a little extra volume at the crown.  Next part your hair to the side and do a French Rope Braid. To do a French rope braid take a small section of hair by the part of your hair near the forehead and split hair section into two smaller sections.

How to apply Maskcara makeup; Jennifer’s Barely There Make Under

Check out Jen’s barely there transformation.  For Jen’s look, I used White Peach & Aura Highlight, Astoria Contour, Bare Blush and Set it all with Vanilla Dust Setting Powder.  With Maskcara IIID foundation you are only applying the product to certain areas of the face. Since there is only one layer of makeup the foundation does not look cakey or powdery. How to apply Maskcara Makeup? It is so simple to apply; Start with a light application of the contour color under the cheekbones, around the hairline and jawline.  For a contoured nose put a small amount of contour on either side of the nose, and for extra pouty lips right under the bottom lip.  Then apply a light application of the highlight color on the bridge of nose, chin forehead and under eye area.  Finally, add blush to the apples of cheeks and blend together with a damp IIID perfector sponge. Add a dusting of setting powder and viola a seamless layer of makeup that moves with your face allowing for long-lasting coverage all day! I hope you find this HAC tutorial helpful and give Maskcara a try. Jen looks radiant and #nofilter necessary when she takes her selfies! Check out Jens Transformation Video!
