Just like revamping your wardrobe for winter, it’s time to revamp your beauty routine! I rounded up amazing products from some of my favorite brands whether it be some neutral lippies to bold eyeshadow palettes to the ultimate setting spray + more, I got what ya need below! P.S. ICYMI my current obsession is the Urban Decay ‘All Nighter’ Setting Spray…it is the only setting spray I found that legit lasts me all day (total MUST try)!
I don’t know about you but with Valentine’s Day quickly approaching + plenty of events to go to with award season in full swing in LA, one of my go-to hairstyles time + time again is voluminous, shiny, healthy hair! To save money I tend to do my hair myself and over time from working in hair salons while I was in college and testing out numerous haircare products through blogging, I found my go-to products that help me achieve the hairstyles I love for any occasion AND a lot of them are from Big Sexy Hair.
Anytime I have to take photos or have an event I tend to let my hair air dry, then I add some dry shampoo to add a little more texture and for that extra bit of volume I use Big Sexy Hair ‘Get Layered’!
What is great about this product is that you case use it before curling your hair to add extra volume and then flip your hair over after curling it and spray it an inch to two inches away from your root in separate layers to add even more va-va-voom.
With Big Sexy Hair products your hairstyle not only lasts all day long but also can last you for a few extra days (for a gal that dreads curling her hair because it is so time consuming, this makes doing my hair a bit less of a struggle since it can last longer to avoid re-doing it multiple times throughout the week).
My favorites from Big Sexy Hair have always been their hairspray products. They smell good, have various levels of hold (whether you like a light spray or a firm hold, Big Sexy Hair has an option for you) AND best of all? They are affordable!ONE can of hairspray lasts me months because of the huge size and when using the products, a little goes a long way.
Ulta typically has Big Sexy Hair on sale every other week with BOGO or Buy Two, Get One Free promotions which makes the Big Sexy Hair line even more affordable.
Also, the Big Sexy Hair line has multiple products for color treated hair as well to lock in + keep your hair looking fresh, shiny + as if you just walked out of the salon.
My trip to London is quickly approaching + that means time to PACK! So while I am still planning all of my looks for London (and Paris – yes we are going to head to Paris for a few days, yay!) I already have my skincare + haircare essentials down pat since I found the best travel size options to bring abroad from Ulta (my go to place for all things hair, skin + beauty)!
Check out some of my favorites below – travel size options are also a great way to test out a product you may want to buy full size without making the commitment 😉 So if you have commitment issues haha Then travel size hair + skin care work well for year round usage.
Happy Weekend! Nothing makes me happier than a weekend filled with some much needed rest + relaxation, but leading up to the holidays one thing I love to do is round up some of my favorite products that double as great holiday gifts ♥ I have loved IT Cosmetics for years now. Their foundation, contour palettes + mascara are part of my everyday beauty routine AND their brushes I love even more. With countless designs they have the perfect brush sets for every occasion + every beauty guru but currently I am obsessing over this ‘All That Glitters Set‘! Seriously, who wouldn’t want to sparkle this holiday season while applying your makeup 😉
Happy Fri – Y A Y ♥ I have a little secret…I LOVE having curly, Victoria’s Secret style hair. The soft waves, perfectly show off highlights + add a feminine touch to any look…I just love having my hair done BUT since I am a baller on a budget hehe I have learned over the years how to curl my hair myself! Normally I like to curl my hair twice a week because with the miracle that is dry shampoo, my curls can last more than a mere fews hours…now they can last a few days!
So I teamed up with my newest haircare brand obsession, Dove to show how I curl my hair!
1. I usually wash my hair the night before I plan on curling it, letting my hair air dry to add a little extra texture (I have super fine hair and don’t wear extensions so I need all the volume I can get).
2. Then when I wake up in the morning I brush out any knots or tangles with the Wet Brush. I LOVE this brush because the bristles are soft + it doesn’t tug or pull out my hair.
3. After brushing my hair I add PLENTY of Dry Shampoo (the more the merrier because it adds texture). I have become obsessed with Dove’s Dry Shampoo’s because they smell AMAZING
4. I separate my hair into 1 inch – 1 1/2 inch sections so it is easier to curl and then I curl away!
5. I have become a fan of Dove Flexible Hairspray now too because it is light, has great hold + doesn’t give my hair that crunchy feeling I hate from other hairsprays lol :p
