2018-06-05 11.10.27 1.jpg

My beautiful friends!! Welcome back to Absolutely Olivia, and happy June 🙂  Back in April, I cut about 5 inches off of my hair, it didn’t seem like a lot, but I definitely wasn’t able to pull off some of the same styles I had with my long hair.  This led to a whole afternoon … Continue reading

IMG_20170523_120838_811.jpg

It’s mid-November which means… another Top 10 post! This is my seventh in the series and I cannot believe I’ve been doing this since April.

Today’s Top 10 is all about my favorite beauty products, and everything from makeup to face washes is mentioned! I don’t wear a full face of makeup everyday, so a lot of these products aren’t being used… Continue Reading

Bronze Eye Tutorial

It’s been a while since a new post has graced the Beauty page of my website, so I figured  now is better than never!  Today, I’m sharing a bronze-y eye shadow look that I completed using the drug store palette, The Nudes from Maybelline, and like to wear during the fall time.  It’s not too hard to do, and can be easily recreated using similar eye shadow shades.  Also, for all my fellow blue-eyed gals… Continue Reading


2 Hairstyles for the Busy Gal

I’ve found myself to be sprinting out the door in the mornings lately, and hurrying between activities in the afternoon, and I know I’m not alone!  This leaves little or no time to do my hair at any time throughout the day, which I hate.  So today, I’ve put together a post for all my … Continue reading


Running Late: Hair and Makeup

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Last year, I always got to school pretty early.  Well, at least for the first month or so. 🙂  As the school year progressed, I slowly arrived there later and later, until I was almost begging for the late bell to ring before I got to class!  I know exactly what it’s like to have … Continue reading


Brow Routine

Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

Some of you may have noticed this already, but I’m going to say it anyway.  My eyebrows are, for the most part, non-existent (if you don’t believe me look at the second picture in this post!).  Although, that doesn’t mean I have to walk around with no eyebrows all the time.  In the last month … Continue reading

I got the Tarteist Pro Eyeshadow Palette for my birthday a few weeks ago, and to say I have fallen in love with it is an understatement!  The colors are gorgeous, extremely pigmented, and blend easily.  After watching a few YouTube tutorials with this palette to get acquainted with it, I came across a look … Continue reading


Braided Up-Do Tutorial

AirBrush_20160808171302

One of the first ever things I uploaded onto this blog was a picture of a braided up-do I did on my sister.  This hairstyle is your classic, cute braid up-do.  The look seems like it took a while, but in reality it probably takes 10 minutes tops!  Today, I am going to show you … Continue reading


Bubble Braid Tutorial

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

On my last post, Solo Style: Chill Day, I wore my hair in a chic take on the regular boxer braids, and several people commented on how much they liked them!  Whenever I am having a bad hair day or wake up rocking second-day, even third-day hair or just running late I always turn to … Continue reading

Gold Glitter Eye and 250 Followers!

Before I even begin this post, I just want to say thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone!  I have gotten so much love and support over the past month and it is more than I ever would have asked for.  Being nominated for awards, receiving the kindest of comments, and gaining 250 followers … Continue reading

__________________________________________________________________________________

This makeup look I am showing today is extremely simple, quick, and easy to do, but really quite pretty and also draws attention to your eye in a subtle way.  I love wearing this look almost anywhere and I find it is not hard to make this base look more bold and extravagant by darkening… Continue Reading
