Here's how you do this look: for the braid headband thing, just braid one chunk of hair, and pull it across your head. Pin the tail down, and use either hair gel or hair pins to smooth any bumps down, although it looks better a bit messy.
For the makeup, which you can't see that well in the pictures, is supposed to be really natural. I did a subtle smoky eye using one of my mom's covergirl pallets. Then, I added a little bit of mascara, some Stila bronzer on my cheekbones, and on top of the bronzer, some dark pink Chanel blush.
Later today, or tonight, I may post some more bold, party apropriate looks.
