Hair of the Day: Making Waves

Beauty Confession: as a beauty blogger, I have to admit that I, rarely do anything special to my hair- in other words, as long as I gets all the tangles out and it's combed, I consider it fixed. Hair routine= non-existent. I know...shame....shame....

On the rare occasion that I actually give a hoot about my hair, I usually have it curled. Believe it or not, I have really nice layers that frames my face and surrounds my head at the back. Since I usually have my hair in a bun, it's hard to tell.

One morning I just felt inspired and below is a picture of what I came up with. I have been watching a lot of hair tutorials from one of my favorite beauty gurus on YouTube: carahamelie03. She did a tutorial on wavy or curling your hair. I followed her method of curling your hair forward and then backward every other strand. The curls blended so well together and didn't come out like tight ringlets which I hate.

Anyway, wore it to work and got compliments on it...Something about me having a date after, no! LOL I get I should fix my hair more often.

Till next time (or whenever I get inspired to try a new hair trend),

bareMinerals Goodies!

I finally received my bare Minerals order! A couple of weeks ago BE's website had a big sale on some of their items and I had to partake. Most of the good stuff was sold out but I managed to end up with a few great things.

Just got these last night so I haven't had a chance to play with them yet. All in all, I bought 3things: Mini Buxom gloss in Winter Escapade (came out I think a christmas or 2 ago), Prime Time Brightening eyelid Primer in Brightening Pearl (pearlescent sheen), Graphite eyeshadow (a deep gray), and best of all, the new Face Fashion Kit in Pure Happiness. I have been waiting to buy the Pure Happiness Kit in a long time since seeing it at Macy's 2 months ago. Anyway, I will definitely review the Kit, Graphite eyeshadow and Brightening Pearl primer. The Buxom I may give to relatives so I'm not sure if I'll get a chance to review that one.

I'm excited for my goodies! Can't wait to play with them!

Have you tried Bare Minerals/Bare Escentuals products before? Makeup, Skincare???

*Which reminds me, gotta review their new Skincare line. Using a new cleanser I'm loving!*

Share your thoughts in the comments if you've used any of bareMinerals/Bare Escentuals products before and currently....

Finally! Clean Brushes!

There's nothing that sucks more than dirty makeup brushes. The ones I use daily seriously needed some washing. After being lazy for a couple of weeks now, I have finally gotten around to washing my brushes. Thank God! I'm sure my brushes are singing those exact phrase right now (if they could talk....or sing...)

Notice on the far right hand of the below are 3 brushes I have been debating on getting. And they are the SigmaxHD brushes. A lot of reviews were made about these brushes on YouTube and I held out buying for a long while...but, caved! The instructions were to wash them first before use, hence, the washing- the major washing done tonight. I won't make any promises, but I will never neglect washing my brushes again and waiting so long to do it! (Yikes! 2 weeks!) That's a major brush sin...waiting 2 long weeks. Ideally, brushes should be washed every week. With a busy schedule, I was not up to washing....

Anyway, I'm happy that I finally have a clean of brushes ready to use!

Thanks all!
