DIY Holiday Hair and Makeup: 

♡ HALF UP HAIR by Shawn

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

Instruments used:

+ Bioionic flat iron

+ Bioionic long barrel styler 1 inch curling iron

+ Wet Brush 4 in 1 edge styler

 + Clear elastics 

Merchandise used:

+ Tigi BedHead hair stick

+ Oribe Superfine Hairspray

To realize this glossy hair up model 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 will put on up. I sometimes prefer to comply with the place the tip 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 the very best factor ever. You’ve most likely seen it go viral on TikTok. The BedHead hair stick by Tigi. It’s a pomade sort 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 long barrel styler by Bioionic. I additionally love that it doesn’t go above 400 levels as a result of there is no such thing as a want for prime warmth like that.

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


First I began with facial 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 mushy brown and taupe Anastasia Beverly Hills brow powder & solely stuffed within the entrance and a bit in direction of the tip to elongate/straighten and give her brows a bit extra energy. 

I then used Elf’s Camo concealer in fair warm with a flat brush to wash up beneath the forehead to provide a lifting impact. 

Enjoyable truth: the Elf concealer I used is an virtually actual dupe for Tarte shape 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 (Makeup by Mario Master Crystal Reflector in Quartz) in her interior 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 naked range in 421. They’re full sufficient however nonetheless wispy and appear like they might be her personal. They’re extraordinarily snug to put on due to their clear band. To complete the eyes and give them that lived in edge I used a little bit of a balm on her lids to provide a moist shine impact.

One among my favourite components 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 measurement 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 water-proof! 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 little bit extra chisel to her already nice cheek bones, I used a little bit little bit of KKW contour powder in shade 3. KIM PLEASE COME BACK OUT WITH MAKEUP! Different choices for that shade can be Hoola Light by Benefit, 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. Related shades can be Stripdown by Mac or Iconic Nude by Charlotte Tilbury.  I buffed the liner in with a brush and then used some Laneige sleep mask throughout for hydration and shine.

For closing touches we did Voluminous mascara, got2b brow gel, and setting spray.


We hope you guys beloved this step-by-step on vacation hair and make-up. Any event actually. You’ll want to comply with Shawn and Ryan on IG @styled.byshawn & @ryancrociante.
