Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

I barely ever get personal on zis blog, but I have really wanted to break out of the reg 'beauty' posts lately. Not that I don't love beauty. (I'm still obsessed, don't worry)  Just do a little more lifestyle posts. Maybe you have already noticed?! So, today I was stalking Whitspeaks and she did a post all about random facts about herself and I lovedddd it! She has a great blog, you can check it out here. I got to thinkin' why not do this. I love random facts. I don't think I am that exciting but I will try! So if you're interested in knowing a little behind the girl behind, Flowers in Emilys Hair, here goes nothin'.

December Playlist ||

'this is my winter song, december never felt so wrong 'cause youre not where you belong, inside my heart.'

Do you guys have Spotify?
If not, you are missing out. BIG TIME. It is the beeeez kneeeez.
I have been loving it. I used to just buy all my music on iTunes but this is sooo much better. But shiiiii, it was ninety nine cents (bag it) (awful Thrift Shop reference) But really, for your first three months its only literally, ninety nine cents. You can get any music in the whole world. (Except T-Swift bc shes ignorant, jk, love you girl) Different from Pandora, you can chose what you want to listen to and make your own playlists! WHICH PLAYLIST OF THE MONTH HAS BEEN BORN.

Lets back up a bit.
I, Emily Augustine, if you did not know, am very weird. With that being said, my music taste is all over the place. I like everything. I would like to define my music taste as schizophrenic. I like pop, rock, r&b, emo kid muzic, rap, 90's, christmas music etc, etc, etc. Sooo, dont judge, I even like a good boy band once in a while. Heheh. I would honestly tho check out these tunes! Although, it is December, I like to dabble my feet here and there in Christmas music, but, I can only take it in small dosages. Sorry to dissapoint anyone!

Tutorial for my Gals with Glasses!

I always get asked this one question: How do you wear makeup with glasses without looking crasssy?
I'm honestly not the one to ask this question because if I have my glasses on, my makeup is gone. If I'm wearing my 10 year old glasses theres no making me look presentable. Makeup with glasses is honestly tough. So, I did some research and talked w my girl Gabi-- a fellow glasses wearer-- and we came up with a basic, everyday, makeup look. Also, some tips as well!

Same lips, Diff chicks. #winteredition

Is it just me or is buying lipstick really hard? Its like a boxa' chocolate.. Ya never know what chur gonna get. Literally. The color it could be in the tube could be totally different than what it is on your lips. AND EVEN THE CRAZIER THING-- a lot of lipsticks look different on different skin tones. One of my favoriteeeeee bloggers did a post a while back check them out here. And I WAS OBSESSED, so I thought why not put my own spin on it! But, how do you know if you should take the leap and buy the lipstick? Cause, theres a lot of different ways it could turn out. But, I am here to help you. I thought I would put together some of my favorite fall lipsticks and then you can see what exactly they look like on different skin types, hair colors, eye colors, the whole shebang. 

Apparently, Russian Red wins! I loveeee the timeless look of a red lip. This lipstick is an amazing red especially because its blue based! Have you ever noticed when you wear red lips you feel like your teeth look yellow? With this lip that won't be the case! Thats because you're getting a warm based red, not a cool tone aka blue;) 

I hope this helped you on your fall and winter lipstick search! Let me know what your favorite color was in the comments! What do you usually go for? A red lip? A purple? Nude? Talk to you soon!

fashion, blog, makeup, hair, tutorial, sarah, hyland, blogger, fblogger, bblogger, lorac,
Hiii everyone!
Today is mine and Kylas last Get the Look post on Sarah Hyland! I could shed a brief tear. Heheh. But, I saved my best post for last... Check out her makeup.. WHAT A BABE. Why is everyone so obsessed with Kylie Jenner when theres Sarah Hyland? Like she does a brown lip too? I don't get it....  Sarah always wears a pretty smokey eye with a brownish matte lip. She goes from grey smokey eyes to brown and is always very luminous! Her skin always looks amazing and has the most perfect glow. Keep reading on to find out more about this beaut and how to recreate it! AND BEWARE OF THE BROWS! Hahahhaha we filled them in to be thick like hers and they look a bit much but I promise by the end it looks perfect!

So first we did our foundation/contour routine which you can find here and highlighted with Nars Albatross. Then filled in her brows hehe.  Then I took my Lorac Pro 2 Palette and took Cool Grey on a crease brush and focused it in windshield wipers into her crease. Then with a bigger brush blended it all out. Then we took Chrome and patted it onto the lid.

After that, we took, cool gray and focused this on the lower lash line to smoke it out a bit. Make sure to blend this as well! Then took Snow on her inner corners and right on the brow bone to lighten things up a bit! To finish, on her lips we used Wet and Wilds 'Bare it All'. I liked this color, its not turning up as brown as it was on camera. But for more of a brown lip, I would choose 'Gingerly' by Mac.

Get The Look: Sarah Hyland Pt 2

I'm back today again with Kyla with our Sarah Hyland Get the Look series! If you didn't see our first posts, look here! Today, we are recreating her Emmys look ahhhhhh. TO DIE FOR. Sorry to anyone this might offend but I feel like this really put Sarah on the map of the celebs to watch. She looked so effortless, but, so chic. I fell in love instantly. Sooo today I am going to be replicating her bun while Kyla will be doing her outfit! 

First, take all of our hair on the top of your head and put it in a pony. Tease that entire pony.
Nowwwwwwww, I have a little cheat sheet. Take either a sock or one of these bad boys and put your hair into the hole. 
Now starting in the front, bring all the hair forward and then wrap all the hair around the donut/sock.
Secure the ends with a bobby pin under the bun. 
Take your hand with your fingers spread open into the front to loosen up the bun, to make it more messy.
AND thats it. 
Im not lying.

Easy peasy lemon squeaky. A chic bun in like two seconds. Thats my favorite kinda bun. Go try this out on yourself! I bet you can do it in two minutes. I dare you! Now go check out Kylas outfit! I am soooooooo obsessed with this! Tell me you don't love this. I feel like it would be perfect for the holidays-- that red skirt? Ughh!

I'm not giving away any clues but there may or may not be a makeup tutorial next!

Now, me and Kyla over at Ky Marie C are recreating Sarah Hylands amazing style. Kyla is from New England and she has the cuteessst blog all about fashion, beauty & life in general! Lets just say, if you like my blog, you'll LOVE HER-- Go check her out! Sarah Hyland is the cutestttt little thing and her fashion sense is BOMB. I will be doing Sarahs hair/makeup for the next few days while, Kyla will be recreating some of her signature outfits! You don't want to miss this guys...... For the first post, I am going to be recreating Sarahs fishtailllllllllllll. Thank you so much Gabi for the heeeelp!! 

sarah, hyland, outfit, hair, get, the, look,

Can we please talk about how effortless this is? I would rock this anyday, anytime, anyplace. This hairstyle is perfect for loungin' around running some errands OR perfect for a fancier event like Sarah did and the best thing is it takes two seconds.

First, I would start out with second day curled hair (this helps with texture) or you can curl it with a wand then start. 

Sarah has crazy thick hair, so to replicate that start of with a volumizing mousse or give it a little tease.
|| Take all of your hair to one side and separate it like you would a braid but with two sections.
Then take the outermost piece of one section and cross it over, combining it to the other section.
Keep repeating this step all the way down. Going from one section to the other, making sure you keep it very tight!
Once you get to the bottom keeping about 4 inches out secure it with a clear elastic.
Now to the fun part- to make it more messy start pulling the braid strands out a little on each side. 
Also, pull out the pieces around your face and if necessary, recurl them.
I didn't do this step- but-- if you want her exact look, take a piece of the bottom hair thats out of the braid and wrap it around the elastic and tuck it in. This way the elastic won't be noticeable! 
AND VOILA! You're done! A simple easy hairstyle you can do anytime. Easy as that:)

Now go over and check out Kylas post all about Sarahs outfit! Comment on her page telling her I sent ya:)

I wouldn't say I am one of those crazy people when it comes to Christmas but, I do love me some good carols and hot coco and decorating the tree and all the lights, ok, I guess I am obsessed... I don't think any one can say they don't like Chr istmas. But, I also can't wait for snooooooooow. We already got a little bit but I want the real deal. Snowed in with comfy clothes eekkkkkk. Oh, and 28 days of Christmas on ABC Family. I am alllll over that every single year. Hehe. My friend Kyla over at Ky Marie C tagged me to do the Holiday Tag so here goes nothinnnnn'.

1. What's your favorite Christmas movie?

2. Have you ever had a white Christmas?
If we don't have a white Christmas, I am very surprised. New York snows all the time. It started snowing in October. FML.

3. Where do you usually spend your holiday?
Christmas Eve is bigger than Christmas in my family. Christmas Eve we ALWAYS go to my aunts, then the actually day at my moms!

4. What is your favorite Christmas song?
Typical white girl-- All I Want for Christmas by Mariah Carey! I actually listen to that song all year round. Hahahahaha.

december, holiday, christmas, tag, winter, snow, christmas, gifts, elf, mean girls, cold, holidays, hot coco,

5. Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve?
YES. Hehe. My mom always gives us our pajamas and my aunts house we open presents from our cousins and my god mother!

6. Can you name all Santa's reindeer?
You know dasher and dancer and prancer and vixen, donner and blitzen and comet and cupid... But do you reeeecaaaalllll the most famous reindeer of all.... Duh, course I can. Rudolph! If I messed that up I will be pretty embarrassed.

7. What holiday traditions are you looking forward to the most this year?
Going to my aunts for Christmas Eve. Being around all my family is crazyyyyyy but its fun. Its nice for once for all of us to be together.

8. Is your Christmas tree real or fake?
If your Christmas tree is fake, I feel bad for you son.. I got 99 problems but a fake Christmas Tree aint one. (I'm lame)

9. What is your all-time favorite holiday food/ sweet treat?
Im pathetic but my grandma always makes bomb pasta salad every single holiday.. My mouth waters thinking about it.

10. Be honest: Do you like receiving or giving presents more?
Both. Honestly. 

11. What is the best Christmas gift you've ever received?
When I was like in high school I got a Blackberry and I thought it was the best thing god ever came down and gave me. I think it broke after that a good 8 times. It was cool tho.

12. What would be your dream place to visit be during the holiday season?
NYC! Deffff.

13.  Are you a pro-present wrapper or do you fail miserably?
I fail. Everytime. Though I do try really hard. I'll get really nice paper and ribbon and the whole nine yards and it always looks awful.

december, holiday, christmas, tag, winter, snow, christmas, gifts, elf, mean girls, cold, holidays, socks, hot coco, cocoa,

14. Most memorable holiday moment?
When I was little, I was sassy. When I say sassy, I was for lack of a better word, a brat. LOL! My older cousin pulled my name for Christmas so Christmas Eve she wrapped up dog food for me... I was devastated. I cried. Then, she brought out a Spice Girl microphone and lollipops... I told you I was a diva hahahhaha.

15. What made you realize the truth about Santa?Again, I was a little brat when I was younger and always said Santa, the Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy you name it messed up my room. I would put my sisters tooth under my pillow so I could get money from the Fairy.. So finally my mom told me and ruined my life........ 

16. Do you make New Years resolutions? Do you stick to them?
Never do I ever. I'm really bad at making any type of resolution. I wish I was.

17. What makes the holiday special for you?
I like everyyyything about the holidays. I feel like every one is just in a good mood. Its like the Fridays of months. Everyyyyone and their mother looks forward to it. I just looove the holiday spirit.
