Valentine’s Day Neutral Blues Makeup with Knot Updo Tutorial

About a week ago, I was trying to figure out what to do for Valentine’s Day video and came up with this knot technique to create an updo. Then yesterday hubby and I were sitting around when “When in Rome” came on Sho. Sometimes ppl ask me where I get my ideas and inspirations and typically they come from magazines or movies that I happened to see at the time. Then sometimes, funny enough, inspirations come when I’m lying in bed thinking up of the next tutorial much like this hair tutorial. The makeup tutorial came from Kristen Bell as a bridesmaid for her sister’s wedding and thought it perfect go along with the look. I wanted a look that can be for all occasion so this fit the bill. Hope you all enjoyed!

Looks complicated? Hardly.
Watch the video to found out how I achieved the look. =)
