Zooey Deschanel/Retro Inspired Look & Braided Bun

Hi everyone! This weekend I was in Orlando visiting family and got a chance to do this really cute look on my friend Jen. She has brown hair and blue eyes like the oh so adorable  Zooey Deschanel, so we thought it would be fun to do a look based off of her style.

For the most part, Zooey wears a lot of neutrals and browns on her eyes and usually a light peachy pink blush. She’ll sometimes have a pop of color with her lips, but her looks are usually pretty tame and more on the natural side. I love it because it allows her pretty blue eyes to be the focus.

For Jen, we went with that and used light beige and nude colors along with medium browns on her eyes, a pink blush, and a some pink lip gloss.

Easy Braided Bun:

To create this simple braided bun, gather your hair and secure in a high ponytail on the top of your head. Seperate your hair into either two or three sections depending on how thick your hair is, for Jen we did three braids. Secure your braids with clear elastics. Take one braid at a time and start to wrap around to create a bun. Secure each braid down with bobby pins. Don’t worry if your bun looks a little messy, it’s a casual look! Feel free to add a bow or headband to complete the look. Jen had this adorable green polka dot wrap we used which worked perfectly with the retro look.

I hope you all enjoy this look. I am planning to start doing more step-by-step/how to looks soon! If you have any suggestions let me know.
