Happy friday my friends! :) It seems like this week just flew by. It's been a very transitional week for us, weather wise. The leaves changing colors peaked around wednesday. And let me tell you, the Rocky Mountains are incredibly beautiful this time of year. This morning we woke up and there was snow on the ground. In fact, it's snowing outside right now. I'm not going to complain, because I love this time of year. Pretty soon I'm going to start a fire in the fireplace. As for beauty products this week, I had the opportunity to try quite a few new things. A few that I love and a few that are just okay. I've scoured the cupboards and my makeup bag to put together this weeks list. I hope you find your next favorite thing.
1. Bioderma Sensibio H2O Micelle Solution
2. The Masters Brush Cleaner
3. Duo Lash Adhesive
4. L'Oreal Magic De-Crease Eyelid Primer
5. Davines This is a Sea Salt Spray
I received a sample of this sea salt spray last month in my Birchbox box. It was my first experience with sea salt spray and I was less than enamoured of it. The first time I used it, I sprayed it on dry hair and it made my hair feel crunchy and straw-like. But I was determined to try it in every way possible before deciding whether I love it or hate it. The next time I sprayed it into wet hair and went to bed. The next day my hair held a curl for hours and had so much more volume! Now, every time need to have big sexy hair for an event, I reach for this stuff. It gives my hair a shine and gives my flat hair the volume it desperately needs. I would definitely recommend it.
BONUS BEAUTY TIP: I watched a Youtube video by Wayne Goss recently on how to apply eyeshadow like a pro. And I took away one tip that I've been trying and have to say -- it's a revelation! This is going to sound so common sensical, but I wasn't doing it before. Use your brush to apply your eye color where you want it. Be it on the lid or the crease, etc. Then take a CLEAN blending brush to do any blending. I face palmed when he said this. As Wayne put it, "Using a dirty brush, or the brush you used to apply the color will just muddy the waters." So damned smart. I've been doing this and my eyes have never looked better. Seriously? Do yourself a favor and just try it. You'll never go back!
Have any friday favorites of your own, or recommendations for products to try? I'd love to hear them. Post in the comments below and share your wares. ;)
Thank you for your time, and stay beautiful friends! xoxox
