The perfect at home blowout starts with clean hair a really good blow dryer and the right products! (Trust me, I learned the hard way).I used to have a really short L.O.B. (long bob) and I found it so hard to style my hair. I was always getting my hair professionally styled. Now that I have a L.L.O.B (long, long bob lol) it’s much easier to manage, hence the at home blowout.
It’s fall and that means gorgeous dark natural hues…time to get serious people. The leaves are changing, the temperature is dropping and we are starting to wear our sweaters, leathers and woolies. This all means that it is time to bring back the dark berry lipstick.
Our summer tans have faded and we are all getting ready for the holidays because believe it or not, they are right around the corner! Yes I said it, they are minutes away! Looking for a fun fall pick-me-up to compliment your pumpkin spice latte!? Look no further, try applying a berry lip.
Tip – keep this look fresh and modern, less is more when wearing a bold lipstick. Let the bold berry lip be the show stopper and wear minimal makeup on the rest of your face. The key to makeup is focusing on either bold eyes or a bold lip. Both at the same time is way too much! Check out some of my favorite bold berry lipsticks:
Wondering about dry shampoo?? PSSSSSSSSSSST I have a secret to tell you…best invention ever and SO easy to use! You know how you just got a blow out and by day 2 it feel great? Well, this is why you need to use dry shampoo! Spray the dry shampoo in the roots of your hair and at the hair line. Section of your hair and spray at the root all over you head. Then, take your fingers and tassel the hair at the the root to blend in the white powder. Not a blonde? Don’t worry Batiste makes dry shampoos in different colors so it easily blends into your hair. Also, don’t forget to use at night before you go to bed, to soak up any excess grease that may accumulate at night. Also, sleeping on a silk pillow case helps to preserve your hair!
Conceal me please! The older I get, I find that concealer is my best friend. But what color am I? How many times do you go to the store, pick out a concealer, apply at home and realize you chose the wrong shade? Me, every time! If you can, leave it up to the professionals to help you choose your color but if you can’t, I definitely suggest using these suggestions when picking a concealer…
There is nothing like a good ole fashion velcro blowout! Velcro rollers have been around forever…think back to old movies when all of the starlets would be waiting in their dressing rooms with their silk robes and hair tightly wrapped up in rollers as they anxiously awaited their next scene. I am all for the velcro blowout because it gives you a smooth finished look unlike any other! How do you achieve this perfect blowout?
Sometimes you just need the cliff notes, am I right?!? A fool proof guaranteed way to get right to the point! I would like to thank ALMAY for coming up with this amazing, easy to use smokey eye palette! I am very visual learner, so seeing where each color is suppose to go on the eyelid is brilliant and a total game changer.
Making up your mind about mascara is a tough one! Do you want thicker lashes? Longer lashes? Darker lashes? Well, after trying just about every mascara on the market, I decided I want longer, thicker and darker lashes, oh my! Ha! But can I actually get it all!? Yes, yes I can!
Soft washed eyelids is all about subtle shadow colors that bring out your eye color. I tend to always want to go dark on the eyes but for this time of the year, its nice to soften up the colors. Think pretty and feminine! Use light shades such as these to create that perfect soft washed glow! I personally love this palette by Bobbi Brown. It’s a great price point and such a perfect variety of colors!
