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!
“quit texting and do your homework” i say to my sister as i eat my third brownie
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.
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.
Hello to all of my beautiful followers. I am so sorry that I have not updated in so long. I’ll tell you a little bit about what my life is like in just a second, so you will understand why. But first, I want to thank you all. I consider my blog small but mighty, and it’s because of you! During my unannounced (and unplanned) hiatus, I only lost one follower. One! So thank you all for your loyalty to my blog. I love each and every one of you.
And beautyforpoorgirls is making a comeback! My life is finally regulating, which means I will have more time to fit in for this blog.
Here’s what’s been going on with me:
-I had a busy summer of nannying, so my makeup inspiration was kind of lacking, because I never really wear much makeup to chase around kids in the sun.
-I moved back to school early to be an Orientation Leader for the incoming freshmen, which was really fun but also really demanding (12-hour days!), so that combined with reuniting with all of my Boston friends left me no time for this blog.
-Now that classes have started, I’m taking classes full time and balancing two jobs. I’m a receptionist and a hostess at a bar, which is super fun!
I plan to phase beautyforpoorgirls back into my life slowly, for the purpose of quality control and not burning out like last time. Expect new posts soon!
I love you all very very much.
Well, I have a LOT of them! Never use heat on your hair, and if you do, use a heat protectant! Deep condition your hair once a week, use a clarifying shampoo once every two weeks, do not brush wet hair, take biotin (you can find many posts about that on my blog), do not shampoo every day (in fact, shampoo as little as possible…if you’re patient your hair will stop being so oily and you can get it down to once or twice a week), make sure to eat enough protein, sleep with your hair down or wrapped in a silk scarf, never sleep with a ponytail holder or clips in your hair, eat lots of protein, read my post about how to brush your hair correctly. Those are all that are coming off the top of my head, but you can find many more throughout this blog. Thanks for your question!
I don’t blame you. I never believed them either (until I tried them).
But guess what. Yesterday I went in for a trim after 4 months without one, and my hairdresser said I really didn’t need one. That’s right. She said “I’ll trim your perimeter for good measure and re-shape your layers but as far as split ends, you really don’t need it.” I never ever thought I would hear that.
So yeah, the hair care tips work.
