What To Wear With Your Hair: Kenra Platinum Silkening Mist

November 10, 2013

photo 1-3How beautiful does our bride Adiana look?? I did her hair, a classic side updo with lots of cascading curls.

Beauty tip: With her hair to add fullness and more curls, she provided clip on extensions. I added some right under her occipital bone, that’s the bone you feel on the back of your head. If you feel back there, there’s a bone and dip leading to your neck. Then added some smaller clip ons and pre created curls and clipped on top of the style.

The product I would love to share with you to use in most my updos is the Kenra Platinum Silkening Mist 

What’s to love about this product: 

  • -weightless
  • -adds shine
  • -eliminates frizz
  • -thermal protection
  • -smells amazing!!!

How to use it:

  • hold about 8-10 inchess from head and spray over entire style

But for some reason I am loving it now a days!!

Its a nice NATURAL change.

Custom Double UP Lashes

 

Last week I did a wedding for a client, I applied some

Demi Wispies from Ardell Lashes, 

but she was used to having more volume so I doubled them up with

402 Edgy Lashes from Ardell. 

Then I realized I created an amazing lash!!

These 2 look so beautiful together!! 

The best part is they are not heavy.

I wore them all day yesterday and they are super comfortable.

Fall Look


Hello Loves, How is your Monday going?
Today I wanted to share some photos of a look I did last week :)

I created this look using Tarte Cosmetics Holiday Collection.

This collection is perfect for creating elegant looks for the holidays.

20131103-230729.jpg
Above I am using the perfect lash (house of lashes, Noir Fairy)
Can’t forget about my eyeliner brightener pencil from tarte cosmetics,

I started doing this a couple week ago and LOVE the way it

makes my eyes look. As you can see I only apply it 

right in the center of my lower lash line.

Smoke out the maroon shade under your lower lash and it brings

your whole look together. 

I have a look similar to this that I will post soon,

a step by step for a perfect fall look! Have an amazing day!

 

Xoxo,
