Friday, February 21, 2014 Lessons From The Pros: The Best Festival Hair With Lou Teasdale
Not everyone can call themselves a “rock ‘n’ roll groomer,” but London-based beauty expert Lou Teasdale totally fits the bill. She kicked off her career as a hair assistant on The X Factor back in 2007, and today she styles the now-infamous boy band coifs of One Direction. An avid festival-goer herself, we thought she’d be the perfect person to gives us some insight on how to style our strands without a lot of product, tools, and, um, shower time. (Not to mention she’s releasing a “creative bible” on DIY hair and beauty called The Craft come April!) Here, Lou shows us how to conquer a 3-day sweatfest in style and—remember, ladies—“baby wipes and dry shampoo are your friends.”

She managed to amp up Ana Beatriz Barros’ (already striking!) features in the freshest way possible—with a bold berry lip and glossy smoky eye. Lucky for you (and us!), we chatted up the makeup artist to get every last detail on this super modern look.
Thursday, October 3, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Ziggy Stardust
In a ideal world, David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust makeup would be everyday wear, but depending on where you work, you might not be able to pull it off (here at Nasty Gal, we wouldn’t bat a well-lined eye). But since Halloween is right around the corner, and it’s the one night a year when unleashing your inner freak is not only accepted but encouraged, we tapped makeup artist extraordinaire Jen Budner to walk us through the steps for creating your own perfect lightning-strikes look.
