Hair & Beauty Routine

Hello! Today, I wanted to share a little bit about my hair and beauty routine with you guys. For the most part, my hair and beauty routine is very low-key.


As you guys can probably tell from the photos on my blog, I typically wear my hair down. To be honest, I’m actually extremely lazy when it comes to doing my hair. Usually I take a shower at night, comb my hair out, put either a little bit of Herbal Essences curl mousse or gel in my hair and then tousle it slightly to give it shape. I let it air dry over night. When I wake up in the morning, my hair is dry and I just wear it as is. If it is a little bit frizzy, I will take the slightest amount of herbal essences curl gel to eliminate the frizz. If it is slightly too “bedhead” for my tastes, I take my curling wand and fix a few pieces of hair so that it seems more defined.

However, there are days when I don’t really feel like dealing with my hair and those days, I just throw it into a topknot. I don’t really have any secrets on how to create the perfect bun. I simply throw it up into a pile of hair on my head and bobby pin it down.

Hair Products that I use:

-Herbal Essences curling mousse
-Herbal Essences curling gel
-Suave shampoo
-Suave conditioner
-Remington curling wand

For my beauty routine, I probably spend the most time working on making up my eyes. First, I slick on a line of Wet ‘N Wild eyeliner in black. I typically wing the eyeliner out- cat eye style. After that, I let the eyeliner dry completely and then curl my eyelashes with my Revlon eyelash curler. Following that, I apply a few layers of Cover Girl mascara. Occasionally, I will wear ULTA eye shadow but typically in neutral colors like nude and light brown.

I also enjoy wearing lip color and lipstick. I love ULTA brand and Wet 'N Wild lipsticks. Although they are relatively inexpensive, they work very well for me. About a month ago Cate McNabb sent me their lip stain in blackberry. This product retails for $9.50 (on sale!) and can be found HERE. This lip color is a great addition to my makeup collection- it stays on very well and I adore the color. 

Usually, I wear a light foundation to cover up any slight skin imperfections. Luckily, I have a clear complexion but I do prefer a little bit of coverage on my face to cover any slight blemishes or the occasional pimple. Cate McNabb recently sent me their cream foundation in fairest which retails for $17 (also on sale!) and can be found HERE. They also sent me their foundation brush which retails for ($14- yet another sale!) HERE. I am very pleased with both products. The foundation applies flawlessly and the brush is an absolute dream- it is so soft and luxurious. I will definitely be adding this foundation to my daily beauty routine. It is perfect for covering up any small imperfections. Additionally, I appreciate the fact that it is very light and it doesn’t feel as though it weighs my face down. Besides foundation, I don’t typically wear anything else on my face- no cover-up, no moisturizer, no BB cream, etc.

-Wet ‘N Wild black liquid eyeliner
-Covergirl mascara
