Fun in the Sun 🌞


  
Yesterday I let my lovely sister play around with my makeup. She did light shadow with falsies , cranberry lipstick, foundation and bronzer of course ! 

In the future, we will be doing a lot of before and after pictures and more in depth descriptions of how we achieve certain looks. We are looking to begin posting videos as well. 

  
I recommend these stretchy little skirts to all of you out there, especially black or really any funky color, they are so easy to either wear high waisted or at mid length. I have a ton of cropped tops and can mix the shirts with any of these and come up with some pretty/ funky cute outfits ! Super simple if you don’t have a lot of time to plan out an outfit. 

  
As for my hair, I did not use any shampoo while in the shower, the longer I go without washing my hair, the better it lays! I use a leave in conditioner and Garnier miracle oil, and it truly is a miracle! I believe I have a post from months back about this particular product ! It is the only product that I have ever found that keeps my hair from frizzing! 

Hope you enjoy and are looking forward to future posts/ videos. Comment below if this is something that you would like to see in the future!

How to tame those natural curls


curly hair

Recently, many people have asked me what I do to tame my natural curls. In the past, I rarely ever wore my hair curly because I always felt that it was so big and by the end of the day it was just unmanageable. Until recently, I came across an AMAZING product that I use religiously.

YES

Garnier Fructis triple Nutrition oil, and it really isn’t lying when it says ” miracle dry oil” . If I’m being completely honest… I need about two inches off of the bottom of my hair, but when I apply this oil you can’t even tell. In the past, I would put the crappiest products in my hair to try and tame it. Such as – gel, mousse, and hairspray. If anything those are the WORST products that you could use and at the end of the day they just dry and damage your hair more by causing more breakage and split ends.  With this miracle product, I hardly have to apply anything else!

I wash my hair, and put it in a towel for about 5 minutes so that it’s not soaking wet, and then i comb it through with a wide tooth comb, section it off from the top of my ears and apply a palm full of leave- in conditioner throughout and then apply the oil. However, I spray the oil into my hands first, and then apply starting at the roots. You have to be careful with this product if you don’t have a lot of frizz and especially around the roots of your hair because a little bit of this goes a long way, but if you’re scrunching it, then it’s easier to get away with because it just looks like luscious locks.

My hair is extremely thick and coarse so it is perfect for me because I need all the moisture/ shininess that I can get. If you’re just curling or straightening your hair, I would only recommend spraying twice into the palm of your hands and  running it through the hair starting from your ear and working your way down. If you have natural curls this is truly a life saver. I put an unforgivable amount of heat on my hair every week and was so insecure about my frizzy nest in the past, but now I hardly ever use heat because I love how much healthier my hair looks, and I can also tell that using less heat has allowed my hair to grow quicker! So what are you waiting for ? If you have any further questions about the products that I use on my hair, feel free to email me or comment below!

Natural wave


Natural wave

Today I woke up and for ONCE was very pleased with my natural wave pattern . The longer my hair grows, the more the weight pulls down the curls and it is becoming more of a wavy look, and not to mention my natural red hair is finally starting to come back! The only products I used on my hair include a cheap sleek and shine conditioner. After showering , I always leave a little bit of conditioner in because my hair is so coarse.

Today’s look!

Today I decided that natural was the best route to take! I let my natural hair go and went for the natural make up look! It’s much easier, that’s for sure. Every once in awhile us girls need a break from getting fancied up all the time !

To achieve my curls I simply wash my hair, then leave it in a towel for about 5 minutes. When I take it out of the towel I do not brush it. I simply part it in the direction I want it to lay and apply my product. I’ve come to find that my hair looks super frizzy if I brush it out and then apply product. I use a sleek and shine conditioner from Walmart that I believe is only like $1.25 , and some argon oil . I put a generous amount of conditioner on my hair but I don’t run it through the strands I simply just apply to the ends and roots and then lather it on by scrunching .

As far as my make up, I simply touched up my brows , and applied a tad of concealer and moisturizer . Sometimes I find I feel more confident when I embrace my natural look. I don’t feel that it takes much effort therefore I don’t feel like I’m worrying about anyone’s opinion other than my own, and sometimes that’s relieving 🙂 hope you all have had a blessed day!
