My hair was simple. Wet bunned with Flawless Curls conditioner as my leave-in. As I Am Naturally Smoothing Gel to slick down the sides. I think that just about covers everything ! 🙂
I’ve used a couple of the Soho Brushes from Walmart twice already. So far I can tell a major difference between them and the E.L.F. brushes I purchased from Target. I’m not knocking E.L.F. it’s a great starter brush/eye palette for beginners like myself. I used the eyeshadow brush,smudger, and foundation brush. First the Soho brushes are noticelably softer. I used the same eye primer by E.L.F. but for some reason the color POPPED a lot more! I forgot to take pics from both days. But I do have some. I think the Soho brushes picked up the pigment better and the entire look came together even more with the smudge brush. Foundation by L’oreal True Match, mascara by NYC. What ya think?
I’ve been wanting to try CurlyNikki’s look, the french twist. I used a banana clip and bobby pins to achieve the “twist” and the scarf from Dollar Tree.
Happy Friday! If you haven’t noticed it’s Friday the 13th….I don’t really believe that sort of thing. What about you? Do you consider yourself to be superstitious?? It seems like if you believe you’ll have bad luck, that’s when stuff happens. Just my opinion…
Anywho…I love the dollar store. I’m not afraid to admit it. It’s also a death trap! You go in there for a few items and leave spending $20 Yea that sorta kinda happened to me today.
I was reading Hairscapades blog. Check her out >>>here<<< she did a mini dollar store haul of some cute hair scarves she found. Here’s a picture of what I picked up today from Dollar Tree.
The brushes are by Soho Beauty,these I got from Walmart, the set was $12. I’m looking forward to using these they feel really soft. The kit came with four brushes: highlighter,foundation,eyeshadow, and smudge. The leopard print case is what caught my eye. Once I got home I looked at the website, apparently the brushes are new to the product line and they specialize in makeup cases. Also in the picture there’s a nail art pen, moisture gloves and socks, and the leopard *wink* scarf. The nail pen has a nice point to it for those of you who aren’t as creative like myself lol it’s reminds me of a marker. I wanted the gloves because my cuticles have been really dry and cracking lately. I’m hoping that it will go away since I’ve been drinking more water. I use lotion daily, but I’ll try massaging jojoba oil into my cuticles and wearing the gloves at night. Same thing for my feet, I’ll apply a heavy moisture cream before bed. I plan to order some cocoa butter from butters-n-bars if I can’t find it locally first.
Right now I’m still not sure about the wonder curl pudding. It’s hit or miss. Tonight I’m doing the baggy method. Nothing fancy smancy here just a regular grocery bag.
For some reason when I did my length check post one picture whouldn’t load so here it is again…
