Cat eyes and a milk maid braid

I've been wanting to try a hairstyle incorporating the milk maid braid for ever, but never really got around to it. I had some time on my hands yesterday, and after seeing Tika Sumpter rock the 'braid', I decided to go ahead and give it a try. Because my hair is in mini twists right now, I used a chunk of loose braiding hair to create the milk maid braid.

After, finishing that, I felt a little inspired and decided to try a different eye look-the cat eye. Well, more like a kitten eye. It's not as dramatic of a winged eyeliner look as the cat eye, so. I don't usually wear dramatic winged eyeliner because (1) I don't have a steady hand, and haven't found a felt tipped eyeliner that gives me more stability (2) I prefer not to use a pencil for winged liner, even though it's more steady (3) I can never get both eyes to match. I used Black Radiance liquid liner.

Also, excuse the lighting on some of these shots. I took them at the worst possible time of day to take pics- the afternoon! I tried to fix them with my very limited knowledge of photo editing, but didn't really succeed.

  1. It's gorgeous! Don't worry about the lightning: the second and third pictures are better, so we can see how it is.
    The few times I tried to make up my eyes, I couldn't do these both equally good either.

  2. Thanks, and hopefully either my camera skills will improve or my photo editing! :)


I read all of the comments and appreciate them whether I agree with them or not. #freespeech lol
