Vanessa Hudgens definitely isn’t shy when it comes to rocking bold looks. And we are loving up her messy milkmaid braid situation. It’s the perfect statement maker that will have everyone jealous as you head out to parties this fall. Here’s our step-by-step guide on how to achieve Vanessa’s so-right-now party look.
the look: Crazy braid
1. To get Vanessa’s brave braid, first part hair down the middle and make two loose braids, tying them off with elastics.
2. Pin one braid along your hairline so it reaches the other side of your head. Then, do the same with the second side in the opposite direction.
3. Pull out a few strands from the front of the braids to add texture. You can use a curling wand to give them a little more form.

4. Secure your look with hairspray to keep it in place all night long.

the look: Lotsa black liner:
1. Start off with a good, dark black liner. A liquid liner will give you an easy to draw, thick, solid line.

2. Outline your entire eye (both top and bottom lids) and meet in the corners with a small swoosh outwards. On your upper lid, to get the heavy black, go over your line one more time.
the look: Bold brows
1. Well-defined brows really frame the face and make eyes pop even more. First, get your hands on a brow kit. This one by NP Set offers several colors so you can find which one is right for you, as well as an angled brush for easier application.

2 .Using a color near or slightly darker than your natural brows, lightly brush the powder onto your eyebrows (not directly onto skin) to bump up their color and make them more defined.
the look: Nude glossy lip
1. Vanessa kept her lip natural and simple. Apply a thin layer of nude gloss to add sparkle and shine.
