Are you looking for a quick way to spice up your everyday look? I find that curling my hair gives my look a fun, flirty, and fresh look, just what I need when I’m having those days where I need something a little extra.
I’ve owned the T3 wand for about a year now, and it is by far the best curling wand I’ve owned. It is a set of three interchangeable barrels to effortlessly create countless looks—from defined spiral curls to beachy waves to full-body glamour waves and everything in between. The barrel is hot and ready to go within a minute; it’s quick, fast, and best of all, long lasting.
It took me a while to get use to using a barrel type curling wand, and I’ve burned myself once or twice (definatley use the provided glove when using it for the first time), but the results are beautiful. My favorite part of curling my hair with the T3 is the second day curls. That’s right, the curls will not only last the entire day, but for two, even three days!
If you’ve ever had those ‘hair’ days where you just can’t figure out what to do with it, the T3 makes it easy, providing beautiful, fast, long lasting curls for days! It is quite the investment, but for the cost per use, I’ve definitely gotten my moneys worth! I highly recommend you check this hot item out!
Finally, after months of being on the waiting list, I was able to receive Sephora’s highly popular subscription box! Follwing suit of companies such as Birchbox and Ipsy, the large beauty brand released it’s very own box for $10 a month! I was excited and anticipated this box these last few weeks. This month’s theme is ‘Forces if nature’ meaning high performing and good for you products. The box includes sample sizes of:
Bite Beauty lipstick
Tarte tarteist lip crayon
Korres wild rose sleeping mask
Briogeo Deep hair conditioning mask
Honestly, I am a little disappointed in this particular box, only because I already own about half of these products. I look forward to subscription boxes because it gives me a chance to try new product out before making the full size purchase. I also have to note that my lip crayon from tarte was missing a lid, which made me sad to see.
My final thoughts on this subscription box are this:
Stay tuned to next month to see what I get in the June box with my honest and open opinion! Till next time!
Just as my style is changing for the spring/summer months, so does my makeup selection. Today I’m talking about a one-brand stop that’s sure to get your summer glow on.
I like to keep things light and easy when it comes to makeup, and that’s even more important as we come into warmer weather. Chanel’s Les Beige line has become my go to and a favorite in my makeup collection. This all in one healthy glow fluid is all I need for a light coverage, giving my skin a natural glow with the benefit of an SPF in it as well. I like to use the Soleil de Chanel bronzer to warm up my face when needed. This product gives your face nice dimension, making things look natural and radiant. This face powder is my favorite setting powder, giving your look a flawless finish.
These two Chanel nail polishes are also in rotation this season. The colors are very spring appropriate, making my nails fun and trendy. These are the products I’ve been using everyday, if you ever wondered about Chanel beauty products I would defiantly recommend you try it out! I’ve linked the products below for you to check out!
With summer around the corner, soon school will be out, and traveling plans will be on their way. There’s nothing more disappointing than seeing your prized makeup product in pieces when you reach your destination. Investing in a carrying case for your makeup will make packing easier, but also save you from the heartache of seeing your most favorite blush smashed and turned into dust!
When I travel, I usually take this makeup portfolio by Laura Mercier to pack my makeup essentials. It’s a hard case portfolio that has magnetic compartments, made to fit an array of makeup products. It is pretty substantial in size, but the hard exterior will protect your goods inside, and it is so easy to access your products when ready to use. I also enjoy using this when I travel to keep things organized, and less cluttered. When we invest so much into our makeup products it is also necessary to invest in protecting it while it travels. Portfolios like these are a great option for great protection, durability, and ease of use. This particular one was a limited edition I purchased 2 years ago, but I’ve linked similar ones down below!
Red lips are not only for winter months. You can wear a great red lip any time, as long as you do it right! Today I’m sharing my 3 tips to getting that perfect red lip.
1: Prep your lips. Exfoliating your lips occasionally will help with the application of lip products. Red lipsticks have a reputation of being drying and hard to apply. Using a lip scrub like this one from Fresh is my favorite so far. I use it about 1-2 a week; it leaves my lip soft, getting rid of any flakiness or dryness. You can also make an easy at home scrub, if buying a product for this step is not in your budget.
2. Use a lip liner. I never understood the point of a lip liner until I really used it properly. Applying a like color lip liner will help make an outline of your lips and act as a staying base for your lipstick. My favorite is from MAC. Applying lipstick over a lip liner makes a world of a difference, so this is step is definitely worth it, especially when working with a red lip.
3. Find a great red Lippie. I’ve found the Marc Jacobs beauty line to be a favorite for lip products. I love this red lippie that I got, which is a Sephora exclusive. Its consistency is easy to apply, easy to build up, not drying and long lasting. The color is perfect for spring/summer making my lips pop and complements any look.
So there you have it. With these three steps, you can be sure to always get the perfect red lip, making a statement wherever you go!
