Let's Talk - Hair and Makeup

Today I am linking up with the Mamas over at Momfessionals and A Little Bit of Everything to bring you a post talking about Hair and Makeup!  A little bit about what I use and what my routine is! 


So basically I wear my hair three ways:

Down and Curly
Down and Straight
Up in a "Mom Bun"

Can you guess which style I sport most often....?!?!

This is my natural hair!  When I was little, I had wavy hair.  The older I got, the curlier it got!  My sister has the same hair.  I spent many many days in high school straightening my hair with a flat iron.  At some point I realized it would be easier to just embrace the curl!  
My favorite product for curly hair is Miss Jessie's Pillow Soft Curls!  I love love love this stuff!  It smells great, leaves my curls defined but not crunchy....and YOU CAN FIND IT AT TARGET!


Sometimes (although much less often now) I do like my hair to be straight!  When I straighten my hair I will typically let it air dry most of the way and then blow dry it completely dry.  Then I use the flat iron and apply a tiny bit of Morrocan Oil to keep it smooth! 

My straightening iron is a T3 Single Pass 1-inch.  I used to have a Chi Iron all through my college years, but when that died I decided to try a new brand.  I've been really really happy with my T3!

After I'm done straightening it, I smooth a bit of MoroccanOil on the ends!

Mom Bun

To create my super fancy mom bun, I gather all of my crazy hair on the top of my head and secure with whatever elastic band I happen to be wearing on my wrist that day!  I spray it with John Frieda Sheer Blonde Hairspray (also found at Target)!

On very very very rare occasions, I will straighten my hair and then use a curling iron to make it wavy.  I say rare because this style is the most labor intensive.  I will blow dry my hair straight-ish and then use a big barrel curling iron to make waves!
Just like my flat iron, I have a T3 curling iron!


On a daily basis my makeup routine is this:
Yup, that's it.  I'm pretty simple.
I love all Clinique products because my skin is sensitive so I get theirs often.

I also like Nars and Laura Mercier

In a pinch, I just grab an inexpensive one at Wegmans, like L'Oreal!

I've also been loving one from The Honest Company's Honest Beauty Line but it's a bit thicker and has more of a foundation type coverage!

When I went to do the whole make up thing I typically just add blush, mascara, eye shadow, and lip gloss or stain!
Currently I'm using:
MAC False Lash Extreme
Nars Blush Brozer
Urban Decay Naked Eye Palate
Clinique Long Wear Lip Gloss

  1. I always have an elastic around my wrist now too! Such beautiful curls you have.

  2. In any case, all through my movements as a social writer, during right around 10 years in Asia, I additionally observed various women whose restorative tattoo eyebrows were an absolute calamity, generally in light of the fact that the shape and the curve of the forehead was excessively articulated, or in light of the fact that the tattoo had been done on a region over the common temple, or so unnatural looking due to having the temple line inked in a strong inky stain on the skin and not a characteristic fluffy application inside some current hair.

  3. I'm trying BLACKWOOD for the last three weeks for my hair and it's giving me extraordinary results You guys must give it a try

  4. There are many causes of hair thinning and ultimately hair fall. Some of them are under human control but some are generic.
    To reverse the generic baldness, a hair transplant in lahore is the best solution in which healthy hairs are extracted from the healthy area of your head or body and transplanted to your head. The procedure is time-consuming but it is much worth it.

  5. If hair fall is caused by dandruff, to overcome dandruff and oily scalp problem, use the best shampoo for dandruff that will clean your scalp from dandruff and avoid it. This will make your scalp healthy and stop hair fall.

  6. I admire how the author seamlessly connects theory with real-world applications. It's a testament to their practical understanding of the subject matter.
