B.A.D. Girl Tip: Get Better Results From Your Mascara

If I had to pick one makeup product to have with me on a deserted island it would most definitely be my mascara! I currently swear by Avon’s  SuperSHOCK Max Mascara as my ultimate favorite. It is so good especially for girls with long lashes because the brush is huge. So here are my tips to get get better results from your mascara and create perfect lashes. Purchase the Sally Hansen Sexy Curls Eyelash Curler. My sister introduced me and it is AMAZING.  You can find it at your local drug or beauty supply store.  You wont regret it. Throw your other one out and buy this one. Now. Use an eyelash comb to separate your lashes and curl them with your new Sally Hansen Eyelash Curler. Hold for 5-10 seconds on each eye. When you apply your mascara it is so important that you wiggle the mascara wand from the base of your lash line to the tip. So whatever you do, do not just brush your lashes with your mascara.

B.A.D. Girl Style: Crop Tops

Crop tops are everywhere and I think that anyone regardless of their size can get in on this trend if they really want to. How to Wear a Crop Top: Find a style that works for you. There are so many available that range from really fitted/cropped to longer and more loose. Pair it with high waist shorts or pants. This allows you to cover up more of your tummy. For a modest look have your bottom cover your belly button so you show just a hint of skin. Elastic waist bottoms like maxi skirts are also perfect to pair with crop tops. If you don’t want to show any skin layer it up with a fitted tank underneath the crop top. DIY! Take an old tee and cut it yourself so it is a length you are comfortable with. Don’t forget to accessorize! How do you rock crop tops? P.s. This photo is from a recent photo shoot I styled and shot for MyTee B.A.D! The sugar skull crop tee is brand new! Enter …

B.A.D. Girl How To: Layer Necklaces

Layering jewelry pieces is one of my favorite things to do to make an outfit interesting! I know  a lot of people get scared to do this and I refuse to let any B.A.D. Girl shy away from a trend so here ya go! Step 1: Start with a Blank Canvas The top you wear should showcase the necklaces you are wearing and not be too busy. I recommend a classic tee or tank. Step 2: Decide on Your Look The pieces you will use all depend on the look you are going for that day, but try to keep the general style of your necklaces the same. Don’t be scared to mix metals like gold and silver together, it adds dimension to your look. Step 3: Pick Out A Statement Piece I recommend picking a statement necklace or a choker. This piece should be the thickest and/or boldest and should rest on your collar bone. I am wearing the Sun & Moon Choker I designed for MyTee B.A.D. Step 4: Decide on the Number …

B.A.D. Girl Tip: Just DANCE!

So as  I was watching Grey’s Anatomy recently I fell in love with the idea of a ’30 second dance party’ to help you relax and de-stress.Music  can change your mood and I definitely use it as my own form of therapy. So all you need for this party is (1.) a song you can dance to, (2) a space big enough for you to move freely in and (3.) yourself, but feel free to invite coworkers, friends or family to join you who also need a few seconds to let loose. Put that song on (or you can just improvise) and start shaking what your momma gave ya for at least 30 seconds. Here are some of my favorite 30 Second Dance Party tracks! 1. “Drop it Like Its Hot” By Snoop Dog makes me want to shake it like I am in the Sun Drop commercial 2. “Rollin” by Limp Bizkit is a good head banger that brings me back to my youth 3.  “Scream“ by Michael and Janet Jackson is perfect for a stress relief dance off …

BAD Girl Tip: Ignore That B!TCH!

It’s human nature to fear the unknown, but its B.A.D Girl nature to learn to ignore it. Fear exists in the mind so you need to train yourself to 1. Recognize when you begin to doubt yourself because of fear and 2. Trick your mind into believing the opposite. The second you notice fear taking over your mind tell yourself that YES, it CAN be done and that you WILL succeed or that you WILL  be better off by doing this over not doing it. Fear is a hater and she likes to crush a lot…of dreams!  So lets come together B.A.D. Girls and put a stop to this lil bitch by taking control of our own thoughts and kicking  fear to the curb! Hope you are all kicking major ass this week and REMEMBER… xx Nicole
