Beauty Tutorials- Requests?

Tuesday, December 27, 2011


Thank you to everyone who voted in my poll! I really appreciate reader feedback more than I can say. With the new year around the corner, a lot of bloggers are working on changing things up a bit and so am I.
The results are in from my poll :
beauty tutorials 71%
craft and sewing tutorials 47%
vintage home decor 36%
vintage movies and music 13%
outfits 60%
style inspiration 34%

So, it looks like we'll be doing loads of beauty tutorials and outfits this year with a good mix of the rest.
 I love tutorials most of all and while they can be time consuming to write, I truly do enjoy sharing what I know with all of you. 

  I have a few reader questions that you have left in comments, which I plan to cover in a tutorial. So, if you think I've forgotten you, don't worry. I prefer to answer questions as thoroughly as possible so you get all the info you need!

This year, I will be doing loads of hair and makeup tutorials with some beauty tips, skin care and fashion how-to's thrown in the mix. My victory roll tutorial is in the process of being rewritten with new information that I've learned over the past few years. That will be re-posted within the next few weeks! Also, by popular request, I'll be doing a tutorial on yesterday's hair this week.

Does anyone have any other tutorial requests? Please leave a comment or email me anytime with your requests!

  4. I need help!! REALLY REALLY!!!!
    So, I am a bit large, and all my life had long long hair (by the waistline), and about 10 years ago, or more, I´ve added a fringe. You can see a recent photo of mine here (http://mulher-vintage.blogspot.com/2011/07/trying-vintage-look.html). And ok, I love vintage things, but I always wear jeans. Lately I have been thinking in cutting my hair, in a vintage style, not very short, but like this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_xuZ8AyUZM&feature=related). I think I have a very round face, All my life had very long and thick hair, and of course I´m very afraid to cut it and then hating it. Looking at my pic, what do you think? Should I give it a try? Or my face isn´t just "vintage" enough? Could you help me? I really would love to know your opinion. HELP!!! ;)

  6. To those who have a similar problem to Susy, I left this comment on her blog:
    Hi, Susy!
    Thanks so much for your comment! I don't think there's anything wrong with having a round face and trying vintage looks. My face it really round too. Just look at Betty Grable! She had a really round face so she often did the puffy fringe or victory rolls to help elongate her face. I think you should go ahead and get the cut you want! A few inches off the back and a little off the sides would make a big difference and help you to try different styles. Most importantly, layers and a little bit of thinning out will help it to curl properly. When I got my vintage cut about 8 months ago, my stylist had to thin my hair out a lot. I was scared because it looked like she was cutting a lot of hair but in the end, it made styling so much easier to do and helps to get a very authentic look. When its not styled, the layers look very cute and modern. Also, you can keep a lot of length and still do many different vintage styles. I'll be doing some tutorials for long hair soon, so I hope that helps you out! If you have any questions about vintage cuts or anything, just ask!

  8. Ohh, I can hardly wait. :) This is just what I want too. I haven't had time to read blogs during Christmas, I've been too busy.

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, dear.

  9. I would like to see a tutorial on how to put a vintage spin on modern makeup. We all love the cat eye, but I know there must be some other way to get that vintage makeup look that isn't that and isn't the Monroe look.
