I’ve never been a fan of flat hair but I’m really really trying to ease off on the backcombing, which is how I normally get volume in my locks within a matter of seconds. I know, it’s not good for your hair at all so I’m trying to be good, I promise! Today I decided to dig out my Babyliss Glamour Waves curling tong to try and get a bit of texture and definition through my boring boring BORING hair. And I think it worked! I don’t have the attention span to sit in front of the mirror sectioning off my hair and perfectly curling each piece so I just found my parting and at random curled pieces of hair about half an inch wide. It was super quick to do and although heat isn’t the best for your hair either, a good heat protectant will work wonders. I hope.
Base: Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation & Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer.
Cheeks: MAC Something Special Cream Blend blusher & New CID Coral Crush i-glow compact shimmer powder.
Lips: Eyes Lips Face Daring Mineral Lipgloss.
Eyes: MAC Vintage Selection Paint Pot, Urban Decay Naked Palette – Sin and Half Baked & MAC Haute and Naughty Lash Mascara.
Half Baked is my absolute favourite eye shadow colour to wear from the Urban Decay Naked palette. Orangey-golds look so pretty on absolutely anyone I think, but especially on blue eyes. Plus it’s a perfect summery colour!
I haven’t got round to trimming my fringe, so even at the risk of people sniggering & pointing and laughing about how MASSIVE my forehead is I’ve been pinning it back in a little braid. I’m kidding, I’m sure people don’t point and laugh at my forehead…well, I hope not! It’s just a teeny tiny insecurity of mine that I’m trying to overcome. So far it’s not working but I’m getting there…slowly! But I think little braids in your hair are so ridiculously adorable that I had to give it a go myself.
How do you achieve volume in your hair without backcombing? And if you could only pick one blush colour to use for the rest of your life, what would you pick?
