Just a quick post today brought to you by the importance of choosing your curl pattern BEFORE you start curling!

If you want a soft, cohesive, all-one-wave type look like this one, then you have to curl each piece in the exact same direction, which will cause it to all blend together once you  comb it through.

For this look, I first used my beloved Tresemme heat protectant. Once it had dried, I just used my 1 inch curling wand to curl 1 inch sections away from my face. After all the curls had completely cooled, I sprayed it with hairspray, let that dry, and then combed it through. 

This is a super quick and easy look for when you’re bored of your naturally pin straight hair but still don’t want to wake up extra early to do something about it.

Any questions? Let me know!

Don’t you hate when beauty products aren’t as good as you mentally hype them up to be?

I’m sad to say that I’ve had this problem with Zoya polishes as well…if I’m not super vigilant with base and top coat the chipping happens extremely quickly. I’ll still continue to use and buy Zoya polish because the colors are unbelievable, but I’m glad someone brought this to attention.

Hello beauties!

Today’s face is simple but one of my favorites.
Eyes: Wet n Wild Sweet as Candy trio, Be a Bombshell Marker Eyeliner in Onyx, and Rimmel Lash Accelerator Mascara
Lips: Urban Decay Pocket Rocket Lip Gloss in Dustin: I really like this because the nude-ness of it tends to offset the pink of my eyeshadow, cheeks and top. This makes the look sweet but not too sweet. Haha.
Face: Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation, Physicians Formula Mineral Loose Powder, NYX Blush in Pinched (I can’t get enough of this!!!), and light contouring with Rimmel Natural Bronzer in Sun Light. 

I miss you all dearly! My life has been so crazy and I realize this is the longest hiatus ever. Unfortunately I can’t commit to any sort of set frequency with posts but I’m going to start posting more whenever I can. I love you all dearly.

and decide to pack “minimal makeup”
but then you also COMPLETELY FORGET TO PACK FOUNDATION
and are forced to use nothing but liquid concealer and loose powder that has minimal coverage…

and due to a million stresses, your skin is worse than it’s been in months…
this is what you’ll look like.

Not too shabby, right? I mean…could be worse.

Also, hi guys. I miss you.
