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
