DIY Vacation Hair and Make-up: 

♡ HALF UP HAIR by Shawn

Hello! I’m Shawn and I type Lauryn’s hair when she’s in San Diego. We’ve know one another for….8 or 9 years now? She’s all the time down for enjoyable types and considered one of my favorites clearly!

Instruments used:

+ Bioionic flat iron

+ Bioionic lengthy barrel styler 1 inch curling iron

+ Moist Brush 4 in 1 edge styler

 + Clear elastics 

Merchandise used:

+ Tigi BedHead hair stick

+ Oribe Superfine Hairspray

To realize this glossy hair up type I began out by straightening Lauryn’s roots. Since we’re pulling half of her hair up and need it glossy, we wanna get them as easy as doable.

Subsequent step is to part off the part of hair that you’re going to put on up. I usually wish to comply with the place the top of yoru eyebrows are. Beginning on the ear pulling up and following this helps raise the face. 

The ponytail ought to be proper on the crown of the pinnacle. Barely again is okay too. Earlier than I secured it with a transparent elastic, I used one of the best factor ever. You’ve most likely seen it go viral on TikTok. The BedHead hair stick by Tigi. It’s a pomade kind consistency that is available in a stick & helps you get these cussed little hairs to put flat. I additionally use a boar bristle teasing comb to brush and assist lay the hair flat. I additionally discovered the WetBrush 4 in 1 edge styler that’s used for detailed styling, to tame flyaways, and easy edges on pure, relaxed and braided types. It’s so nice! 

I additionally used hairspray to assist with any flyaways. As soon as secured, I used my favourite curling iron I’ve ever used. The 1 inch lengthy barrel styler by Bioionic. I additionally love that it doesn’t go above 400 levels as a result of there isn’t any want for top warmth like that.

 We put a wave within the mid to ends of Lauryn’s hair, too. Then with a large tooth comb, I evenly combed them out to interrupt them up a bit of. Completed with a bit of texture spray and hairspray. So it’s glossy with a bit of physique with the waves! Horny but enjoyable.


First I began with facial therapeutic massage which Lauryn is obsessive about. I used the Vitamin C Rose oil from Biossance. As soon as the oil was absorbed, I utilized Veil Hourglass Primer in direction of the middle of the face outward, then I moved onto Brows.

 Lauryn already has some fairly epic brows as it’s; I used smooth brown and taupe Anastasia Beverly Hills forehead powder & solely crammed within the entrance and a bit in direction of the top to elongate/straighten and provides her brows a bit extra energy. 

I then used Elf’s Camo concealer in truthful heat with a flat brush to wash up underneath the forehead to present a lifting impact. 

Enjoyable reality: the Elf concealer I used is an nearly actual dupe for Tarte form tape, which is one other product Lauryn has been digging as of late. 

To be sincere we saved her eyes fairly minimal. I used the smallest quantity of a Charlotte Tilbury bronzer in 1 – a cooler toned bronzer to sculpt her eye, and popped a shimmer shade (Make-up by Mario Grasp Crystal Reflector in Quartz) in her internal nook to open up her eyes and add that little glow.

For lashes I used the lash I’ve been completely in love with currently, that are from the Ardell bare vary in 421. They’re full sufficient however nonetheless wispy and seem like they could possibly be her personal. They’re extraordinarily comfy to put on due to their clear band. To complete the eyes and provides them that lived in edge I used a little bit of a balm on her lids to present a moist shine impact.

One in every of my favourite elements of glam is COMPLEXION… since we allowed the oil and primer to soak up into her pores and skin, I then went in with Hollywood Flawless Filter in shade 3 by Charlotte Tilbury on the excessive factors of her face. This product has some skincare advantages but additionally provides that ‘lit from inside glow’ to the pores and skin. 

Then I went in with a a lot deeper shade of the Camo Concealer across the edges of her face (brow, cheekbones, jawline, and down the neck) to sculpt and bronze the face. I then went in with two lighter concealer (creme brûlée and honey by Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer) and grabbed a pearl dimension quantity of the Hourglass primer once more to combine with concealer ~~ sounds unusual however consider me this was our saving grace the day of the marriage. It fully made her face waterproof! Extra on that later… 

I set her face with Airbrush Flawless End Powder once more by Charlotte Tilbury in shades 1 & 2. I then went in with powder bronzers additionally by Charlotte Tilbury (2) to bronze her face. I like how buttery and easy her powders work. 

So as to add a bit of extra chisel to her already nice cheek bones, I used a bit of little bit of KKW contour powder in shade 3. KIM PLEASE COME BACK OUT WITH MAKEUP! Different choices for that shade could be Hoola Gentle by Profit, Kevin Aucoin sculpting powder in meduim which I additionally love. 

When it got here to Lauryn’s lip I used KKW in nude 1 liner once more. It’s discontinued. Comparable shades could be Stripdown by Mac or Iconic Nude by Charlotte Tilbury.  I buffed the liner in with a brush after which used some Laneige sleep masks throughout for hydration and shine.

For remaining touches we did Voluminous mascara, got2b forehead gel, and setting spray.
