To Tease or Not To Tease?

Tuesday, April 7, 2009


  • Comb
  • Hairspray

How To:

For those of you who suffer from flat hair it is in your best interest to tease. I have no natural curl or wave in my hair therefore I have no natural volume.

Begin by sectioning hair horizontally on the top of your head.

  1. Next using a fine tooth comb, brush up and down.

  2. After you have completed the actual teasing, spray a thin layer of hairspray at the base.

  3. Tease all of the sections working your way to the crown of your head.

  4. Smooth back all of the teased sections.

  5. Using a comb brush gently trough the sections to smooth the hair.

These are the basics of teasing hair. Depending on what hair style you are going for your steps will vary after this.

*note: When teasing be careful not to tease to hard or to often. Use good conditioner, especialy after teasing!

How To:

8. With bobby pins, secure the edges of the bun to your head.

Skin Care Products I Swear By

Friday, January 2, 2009

Mary Kay TimeWise 3-in-1 Cleanser:

  • Comes in: Oily, Combination and Dry

  • Price: $18

  • I rank this product:8

I really like this cleanser! Just because its an age fighting cleanser dosent mean younger girls cant use it(17 and up). I have really sensitive skin so I cant use harsh exfoliaters. TimeWise has a very small amount of exfoliaters just right for my skin type.

Purpose Facial Cleanser:

  • Soap free

  • Hypoallergenic

  • Won't clog pores

  • Dermatologists Recommended

  • I rank this product:9

I love this cleanser! I especially recommend Purpose for those who are on topical acne treatments. Topical acne creams cause the skin to dry up and become red. It really burns!!! Soap based cleansers really make life miserable, but because Purpose dosnet have a soap base it never burns or causes drying of you skin!

Mary Kay Oil Mattifier:

  • Lasts 8 hours

  • Can be reapplied over makeup

  • costs:$15

  • I rank this product:8

I have extremely oily skin! I have tried alot of oil mattifiers, but this one I swear by! It keeps the shine of your face, but dosent overdry, and when I have a really bad oil day I can easily reapply over my makeup!

Mary Kay Acne Treatment Gel:

  • cost:$7

  • I rank this product: 5

Nothing ever happens over night! I really like this acne gel, but you have to be patient for it to work. Sometimes it take about a week to start clearing up the acne. Its perfect for the week before prom or senior pics to get rid of that one spot on your face that just popped up the night before!!

Mary Kay Oil Control Lotion:

  • Fragrance free

  • cost:$18

  • I rank this product: 10

Like I said before, my skin is really oily so I need something that keeps the shine off all day! Mary Kay oil control lotion works like the charm it is! This lotion not only keeps off the oil, but hydrates your skin to keep a healthy PH balance. Its perfect for keeping your skin soft and I swear it even evens out my skin tone before I apply my makeup!
