So summer is upon us, although honestly, here it never really goes away! With a vacation, comes the constant battle between protecting your skin from the sun while simultaneously yearning for a flawless tan. Some of us, in the past, have sacrificed our skin to get that perfect summer glow, including yours truly!
Summer time means friends, fun, and unfortunately the other f-word. Frizz. During the summer, the added humidity really hits your hair hard. Excessive exposure to the sun can cause your hair to become dry and brittle. The good news is, this year the summer heat doesn’t need to wreak havoc on your hair!
First off let me start by saying, I love my curly hair! My voluminous hair and springy curls are bold and stand out in a crowd; they also are a lot to handle. I’ve been lucky enough to work with some great hairstylists who have shared insider secrets and hacks to help me maintain my hair, which tends to start acting funky during the summer.
I have had the good fortune of working with incredible makeup artists and learning tricks from them by simply observing them. Often, I have places to go to where I don’t have the luxury of spending 2 hours getting ready for hair and makeup. Since I was a teenager, I enjoyed doing my own makeup! Today’s beauty tutorial doesn’t really stand a chance against the kind of beauty tutorials you see on social media, it’s a slightly different take on makeup, one which is more natural and fairly easy to do. It takes me about 20 minutes, at most, to create this look and I am happy to walk you through every step of it. However, the right products are crucial for achieving this look, but I will list them all down for you. I am still trying to figure out how to contour correctly, how to prep my skin for makeup – it is really not my forte – which you will see in my video. But for the rest of the things, I have constantly been playing around with different styles and this is how far I have gotten.
Let me start by saying, WELCOME TO MY FIRST BLOG!!! Actually, this is not a blog, it’s more like my little corner; it’s me being candid & honest and sharing bits of my personal and professional lives with you – no holds barred.
