I recently received some curlers from the lovely team at Sweet Roll. The sweet rolls are a simple solution to a lovely curl. An added benefit to these Sweet Rolls is that they condition hair through steam and make your hair and curls soft. You can use one big roll or several depending on how many curls you want added to your hair. Simply clip them up with the provided hair clips and leave it in for a half hour for desired effect. The process could not be more straightforward!
First, brush out your hair completely.
Then put the rolls in the microwave for thirty seconds (I usually do two at a time). When the rolls have been properly heated, remove them from the microwave. For smaller curls use the smaller rolls and vice-versa.
Divide your hair into six different sections beginning with the section of hair closest to the nape of your neck.
Take a large roll and wrap your hair around the roll until hair feels tight. Then, slowly bend the roll into a circle. Tie the strands together and clip firmly into hair.
Do this with the next section of hair until all of hair has been clipped into the rolls.
Leave in anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes while you are getting ready for your day. Once removed, Sweet Rolls will leave you with lovely soft curls. I like to add a pump or two of hairspray to keep the ringlets from flattening out.
My most recent obsession is with Youngevity’s Mineral Make-up Line. The lightweight solution provides total coverage and is perfect for all day wear during the spring and summer when you want to keep make-up to a minimum. The all natural, hypo-allergenic, and chemical free make-up is suitable for all skin types especially those who have sensitive skin. I love the loose eye shadows by Youngevity because they are so easy to use and take off. The variety of earth tone colors and smooth application are perfect for achieving an effortless look that doesn’t appear to made-up.
When I wear eyeshadow I tend to blend a variety of colors together to make my eyes really pop. This is a great trick for photographs because it can create the illusion of deep-set eyes. Begin by applying some concealer under and around your eyes. Set the concealer with a base shadow (one that closely resembles your natural skin tone). Apply all over. Then choose a dark shade (Youngevity’s Pica and Bourdeaux shades work wonderfully if you prefer shadows with brown undertones. Apply this directly above the lid, close to the eye, then blending upwards and outwards. Next, choose a lighter shade (I recommend Youngevity’s Norway or Yellowknife) and apply directly above the darker brown shade. Slowly blend together. Finally, I like to apply a white/transluscent shade right below the brow bone. To complete the look, apply a light layer of mascara and line your eyes in a brown pencil.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like panty lines. I think they make an outfit look tawdry but I don’t like to go without underwear either. After looking around for a solution to a recent gown issue, I discovered the best way to get rid of panty lines aside from going commando. I found my answer with Shibue, a stick on panty!
