Happy Monday, Girls!
If you're like me, this weekend just wasn't long enough. We had a couple late nights and I could use one more weekend day to get caught up. But, such is life, right?
Today, Andrea and I are "talking" about all things HAIR and MAKEUP! From your hair routine, to favorite lip colors...we're covering it all. You can join us!
I'm gonna start by talking my favorite hair products...
*Moroccan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner-This shampoo and conditioner has quickly become my favorite. I wash my hair about every three to four days and the Moroccan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner are my go-to. They smell delightful, get out all the products from the days before, and condition my hair so well.
*Moroccan Oil Hydrating Cream-After washing my hair, I put a couple pumps of this in my wet hair. It adds extra hydration to my "dry" hair and when I blow dry it leaves it very smooth.
*Wet Brush-I use the wet brush to comb through my wet mop of hair.
*BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium Hair Dryer-About two years ago, I realized my cheap blow dryer just wasn't cutting it so I decided to invest in a nicer dryer. Immediately, my drying time was cut in half. This not only dried my hair quicker, but it left my hair feeling smooth. Win-win!
*BaByiss Pro Nano Titanium Hair Straightener-If I'm straightening my hair, then after drying, I use this straightener. My hair dresser uses this brand and encouraged me years ago to upgrade. I've never looked back since I switched.
*Moroccan Oil Treatment-After straightening, I always add a bit of the Moroccan Oil to smooth any stray pieces.
*Hot Tools Curling Iron-If I'm curling my hair, then after blow drying, I separate hair into sections and curl with this curling iron.
*Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream-After curling, I put a little of this all over hair to give it an even smoother texture.
Here are some random things about my hair routine...
*I only wash my hair every three to four days.
*I use dry shampoo every day I don't wash my hair.
*This Batiste is my favorite dry shampoo brand.
*I pretty much wear my hair three ways...straight, curled, or in a pony tail.
*Because my hair is colored, it tends to get dry/brittle before getting super crazy greasy. (I went through a period of MAJOR teasing and it destroyed my hair for a bit.)
*About once a year (for the last two years) I get a Keratin treatment (similar to a Brazilian Blow Out). It tends to make my thick head of hair feel less bulky and smoother.
*Whatever I do after washing/blow drying-straighten or curl, I have to stick with that until I rewash my hair. If I switch before washing, then my hair doesn't stay curled or straight.
*Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer-About three months ago, my beloved Tarte BB Cream ran out so I decided to give this moisturizer a chance. Shay convinced me to mix a bit of this with a little of....
*Nars Illuminator-THIS! I mix just a tad of the illuminator in and it gives my face a little shiny look.
*Beauty Blender-And because Sheaffer is so bossy I bought this sponge a while back but just hadn't used it. It's the perfect applicator for my moisturizer/illuminator mix.
*Urban Decay Naked Palette-I've had this palette for probably too long, but it's my favorite/my go-to.
*Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Pencil Eye Liner-These eye liners are easy to use and go on smoothly.
*Bobbi Brown Mascara-I bought a Bobbi Brown gift set over Christmas. To get a fun eye color, if I'm being honest, but I liked the mascara so much that I bought a full size asap.
*MAC Viva Glam II Lipstick-This has been my go-to lipstick for years. No matter what season this is what I wear. I'm on a hunt to change it up a bit. I'll let you know if it works out. haha!
*Buxom Full-On Lip Polish-I always have one of these in my purse, pocket, or car.
If you guys have any questions, please leave me a comment. Thank you!!
