Two things l Love!

Most of us put on some sort of makeup to enhance our look, but can get confused on how to do it correctly. I love this site for makeup tutorials. She does everything from basic daily looks, date night, Hollywood glamour, false eyelashes, eyebrows, contouring, highlighting and eyeliner. I get asked a lot how I do my makeup, and this is exactly how I do it. Below is a tutorial on a very basic look that can be worn daily. I suggest getting down the basic steps of using a base/primer before applying eyeshadow, using brushes- instead of the sponge that comes with the shadow, and layering blush with a bronzer for highlight and contouring. This will give you the foundation to create any look you want. You'll be a makeup whiz in no time!

This video is full face in 5 min. Impressive and very doable.

My second love is Aveda Control Force hairspray. This stuff is amazing! I have to admit, I didn't love it until I moved from Arizona to DC and went from living in a dry climate to a humid climate. Control Force hairspray is anti-humidity and will keep your styled hair looking great all day. This hairspray is workable and won't leave your hair dull, flaky, sticky, or crisp. It's also great for second day hair, holding curls in place, and all hair types. Hands down best hairspray I've ever used! (the models hair was not washed between styles)
