How To: Get Ready fo Valentines Day

How to Get ready for Valentines Day
or any day you feel like Lana Del Diamonds.

As I awoke this lovely February morning in my matching negligee and robe, I looked at myself in the mirror and thought, "how does a marvelous big booty bitch such as myself end up single, less then a week till Valentines day, you are Caelan Hughes?" I then do my morning confirmations a la Jessica, click here, remember that Donald Glover and I have not met yet therefore my true love is still waiting for me and I begin my beauty regimen. This beauty regimen is not to "score" any "dreamboats" persay, it is because I like wearing makeup and I shouldn't have to justify my actions due to weird societal expectations and One Direction songs that reiterate that I am beautiful without it. 


The Hair

I begin with this dope TRESemme heat protectant, I swear all the beauty gurus use it and you should aswell, in the words of JuicyStar07 and any mom featured on DanceMoms, this shit is "thebomb.com"

This is my causal "getting ready" ensemble, 

you know how I do ;)

The Face

omg, I'm not wearing makeup, look how b00tyful I am
lol jk

put on your foundation and or bb cream, and or tinted moisture and or Elmers Glue

And if you are like me and born with bags under your eyes comparable to Shaquille O Neil, ladies and gentlemen let me tell you, Benefit's Erase Paste IS how I beat Shaq, (yes, that is an Aaron Carter reference)

set it then forget it with whatever powder you chose, I'm using Hello Flawless by Benefit

The Eyes

This look is super easy, no conturing or cut creasing or any of that crazy ish involved
just get a very two very light color eye shadows. I'm using this random white Sephora one and Sin by Urban Decay

Put the lighter one on your brown bone
and the less light one on your lid

Ladies and Gentlmen, my BIGGEST makeup secret, MAC's Rapid black eyeliner, its like a sharpie and it makes winged tips easier than getting wing tips as a waitress at Hooters.

I know you arent supposed to stretch your eyes but I live my life on the edge

Then use whatever mascara you want, I'm using this MAC one but I don't necessarily recommend it. I usually try not to spend more than $10 on mascara because its honestly not worth it, but alas, this was a gift and I never return free things.

forgive minor eyeliner mishaps, nobody is perfect, I gotta work it.

The Eyebrows

Not much to the eyebrows, I fill them in with MACs eyebrow pencil in Brunette and then with any brown eye shadow, this one is Loreal 


Add a Marina and the Diamonds heart on the side of your face, because you are cute and from far away people may mistake you for an exconvict, and we like that sort of thing around these parts.

Add some blush, you know.

And a hotpink lip, YOU ARE IN THE MONEY BABY!

Final Hair Details
Now take out those curlers and tousle your hair around like you are Tina Turner.

you best not forget to hairspray your lovely locks

Badda boom, badda bing, you are done and YOU ARE GORGEOUS

While I wish I could wear my negligee out and about, I am sadly NOT Courtney Love, however an LDR inspired diddy will surely suffice.
