CC Beauty Live: The Faux Bob

I'm always debating whether or not to cut my hair shorter when I get sick of dealing with my long locks. My hair is pretty high maintenance because it has a mind of its own. I cut it pretty short at the beginning of my freshman year and loved it, but I've been growing it out ever since because I missed the versatility.

CC Beauty Live: Bold Eyes & Brows

Just because it's summer doesn't mean you have to avoid bold looks. Sure, the heat can be tough to handle, but with the right products and process you can keep your makeup on all day.

CC Beauty Live: Self Tanners

Self tanners can be your best friend during the summer months! Sure in the past self tanners have been notorious for their distinct smells and splotchiness, but the formulas have improved and continue to do so.

CC Beauty Live: The Rope Braid

Also known as the unicorn braid, the rope braid is quickly becoming the "it" braid for the season. It's super easy, just a little tricky to get started like our fishtail friend.

CC Beauty Live: Review Session!

This braided headband look I did back during the holidays is perfect for the summer, too. It's especially great because you can braid your bangs in and pull the rest of your hair up so you've got a great heat-friendly look.

CC Beauty Live: Hair Chalking With Color Fusion

Hair chalking is one of the hottest new trends in the beauty world right now. It's a great alternative to dying your tips or getting colored highlights because it washes out.

CC Beauty Live: Review Session!

Time for review! I'm sure you're doing plenty of reviews in your classes, as am I hence my absence. It's about that time again, final exams are coming and we need to brush up on how to take care of ourselves.

CC Beauty Live: Ciate Nail Polish

Nails are one of the easiest fashion accessories to change. Last week, I introduced you all to Custom Nail Solutions, which are custom acrylic nails.

CC Beauty Live: Custom Nail Solutions

When I was in high school, acrylic nails were the big thing. Everyone had them, and then when I got to college I realized that my mom was no longer going to take me to get my nails done every few weeks.

CC Beauty Live: Quick & Dirty-Free Your Mane

I've introduced you all to a lot of products throughout CC Beauty Live, hair products in particular. We've done a few hair oils and what not, but I have to tell you that Free Your Mane really impressed me. I absolutely adore products that aim to be chemical free, and this company has made that its mission and keep things affordable at the same time.

CC Beauty Live: Spring Break Sun Safety

It's about that time again, Spring Break is here! I'm on my way to Destin, but I wanted to give y'all some SB sun safety advice. I love being tan, and there's nothing wrong with that but please practice safe sun.

CC Beauty Live: Quick & Dirty Ponytail

Are y'all hooked on Netflix? Because I sure am. And I've been watching Gossip Girl for the past three weeks. I finally finished season 4 and am dying to start on season 5 when I can. Anyway, I've been total inspired by all of the fabulous hair on the show.

CC Beauty Live: Hot Rollers

Who doesn't love big, curly hair? I know we do down here in the South, and there's never a day that goes by when I don't see a girl with hot rollers in her hair at my sorority house. Big curls are a big deal and yet so simple!

Feb 12, 2012

CC Beauty Live: Review Session!

In lieu of a new video, I'm showing one of your favorites: Ombré On Your Own. I love this look, and I can't wait to do it again for spring! It's a fabulous trend, and I certainly hope it sticks around. In fact, some very fashionable people were sporting this look at Birmingham Fashion Week.

CC Beauty Live: Temporary Highlights With Generation Klean

I've gotten highlights a few times, and it just never worked out the way I wanted it to. One time in like eighth grade, I had these awful blonde highlights that made me look like Tony the Tiger's cousin. It was bad.

CC Beauty Live: Say Yes To…

You've seen the Say Yes To brand all over the place unless you've been living under a rock. They've got some awesome lotion and chapstick, and it's all natural, organic, good-for-your-body stuff.

CC Beauty Live: Change Your Part

I know what you're thinking, "Caitlin, I can't change my part! I'll look ridiculous." False. I have recently switched from my natural side part to a middle part. I'll give you a minute to collect your thoughts.

CC Beauty Live: Ponytail Upgrade

Ponytails are great for keeping your hair out of your face or off the back of your neck or if you're just having a bad hair day. They're easy, which is why we love them so much. But the regular ponytail can be a bit dated sometimes.

CC Beauty Live: Eye Popping Makeup

I love black eyeliner and white eye shadow, but I particularly love them together. I was on Pinterest the other day setting up my "CC Beauty Live Inspiration" board, follow me and CollegeCandy and you can pin stuff at us!

CC Beauty Live: Salon Style Blowout At Home

We all know the best part about getting your hair done is the fact that your blowout lasts several days. Okay that and the free scalp massage. But seriously, you always leave the hair salon feeling like you stepped out of a Tresemme commercial.

CC Beauty Live: Winter Skin & Hair Tips

While it hasn't necessarily been too cold down here in the south (as in it was 70 degrees last week), the nights are getting frigid. I can only imagine how it feels up north right now. Winter can be really harsh on your skin and hair, so I want to make sure you all have the proper means of keeping everything under control as the temperature drops.

CC Beauty Live: The Top Bun

You've seen this trend all over the red carpet on Kate Bosworth, Lauren Conrad, Kirsten Dunst, and more. The top bun is everywhere. It's a bit more high fashion than the typical ballerina bun, although the idea is pretty much the same.

CC Beauty Live: Blushing For Breast Cancer

Just because October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, is coming to and end doesn't mean that breast cancer awareness is. I think awareness months are fantastic, but people often forget the cause after the month is over.

CC Beauty Live: Halloween From Your Makeup Bag

It's almost Halloween, and I can't wait! I'm not the biggest fan of the scary or paranormal, but I love the looks and excessive makeup. That's the best part of this holiday.

CC Beauty Live: Spa At Home-DIY Scrubs

Scrubs are one of my favorite things to make at home because there are so many different kinds. You can make a scrub out of almost anything from your kitchen. At home scrubs are super cheap and can actually be better for your skin because you're not using a bunch of chemicals that can be found in store-bought ones.

CC Beauty Live: Neutral Daytime Smokey Eye

There's a fine line between done up and overdone. Sure I like to have fun sometimes and put on something out of the box, but I don't think work or class is really the place for that. I've been using a lot of neutral colors lately and making a smokey eye that is perfect for daytime and can easily transition to nighttime as well. So take a look for how to do it!

CC Beauty Live: Half Up Twisted Bun

It's been a while since we had a hair tutorial, so I thought it was about time! I'm pretty busy during the day, which means I don't have a lot of time to do my hair. And you all know I don't wash it every day, but it's still a hassle to keep up with. So quick and easy hair styles are essential for me, and they probably are for you too.

CC Beauty Live: Painted Earth Skincare and Cosmetics

As you all know, I get the opportunity to try out a lot of products from well known brands. My favorite thing though is testing out small, independent brands that are trying to take on high-end, well known ones. When Joanne contacted me about trying Painted Earth, I was so excited!
