But, how do you care for a new tattoo? First, keep it clean but don't keep it bandaged for longer than a day (or at least that's what they did for mine). Then wash it twice a day, or more if you are really physically active and sweating, with an unscented Soap. I used a Dial moisturizing hand wash, unscented, to gently wash it. You DO NOT scrub or rub hard, just gently wash the tattoo and then PAT it dry. Then take an UNSCENTED lotion and put it over the tattoo. The tattoo will scab over and this helps it to heal to where it's not raised and rough. I would put the lotion on at three different points during the day- when I got up, in the middle of the day, and right before I went to bed. I kept up this routine up through the second week of September. The biggest thing is to keep an eye on it and if it starts to look infected or not right, you need to go see a doctor immediately. I hope some of you can find this helpful!

For headshots, you NEVER want to have over done or cakey makeup. You want to look 'natural' but put together and nice. That means, no super bright or trendy eye or liner colors, a nice lip, no bright unnatural cheeks, and natural lashes. So let's just go over what I did for these photos!
I started by curling my hair with my flat iron and then spraying the bejeezus out of it with Aqua Net so it would stay because it happened to rain that day. I then used my favorite Revlon PhotoReady liquid foundation and then my NYX dupe for NARS orgasm blush. I then highlighted my cupids bow and right above my cheekbones with a NYX highlighter. I lined my eyes, top and bottom, with my Urban Decay 24/7 black eyeliner, and then used my BH Cosmetics color palette to do my eyeshadow. I stuck with copper, light brown, and gold- neutral tones that would accent my eyes. I finished this look off with a slick of Rimmel Apocalyps lip gloss in the bright pink color of which I can't remember the name of right now and a few swipes of my mascara of choice at the moment which is Rimmel Scandaleyes Curve Alert.
Basically the same face, except my hair is in it's natural state of being straight and instead of using a bright pink lipgloss, I used the double ended dimension lipstick from Covergirl.
