Layered Curls and Shadow

I've been rolling my hair as I have here and today I tried to go for a layered curls look. I like it so I better take a snapshot of it or else I'll forget! :)


I also took the advice of Imogen and tried some shadow to play up my eyes. I didn't want to overdo it so it's pretty minimal but I think it adds some mesmerizing mystique! Thanks for suggesting that! I've got a bit of studying to do before attempting some of the vintage eye looks, they look like they may take a bit of practice. But I'm up for a challenge so it should be fun!

I love this look! It's so pretty. Are you going to do a YouTube tutorial on it? *crosses fingers* *looks hopeful* Also, do you straighten your hair before you roller set it? If not, what do you do to help keep down frizz? It looks lovely and I can't wait to try it. This is def. one of my favorite blogs. Keep up the great work.

With eyes as large and doe-like as yours, there's no such thing as "over do." Trust your eyes to carry glamour, I do!
