Beauty Look of the Day: A Pop of Color

Lip Gloss

Saturday night I headed out to the movies with my mom and a family friend to see Tyler Perry’s new movie Mr. Deeds (AWESOME movie by the way!).  I wanted to try something different without looking like I was trying too hard.  So I went with a simple makeup look (which has been my M.O lately!) with just a pop of color.  I’ve been using this concealer from Revelon almost everyday because I love how it instantly brighten my eyes and creates a great base for my cream based shadow. For my something different I went with a new hairstyle I wanted to try out and I’m digging it.  Might rock this for a few days!

Flat Twists

As I was getting ready for my Saturday morning hair washing ritual, I was checking out Youtube for a different style I can try than my normal wash and gos.  I wanted something simple with as little hair manipulation as possible so I can keep the breakage to a minimum.  I came across this hair tutorial and it was perfect.    After stretching my curls a bit with the blow-dryer, I moisturized my hair with Shea Moisture’s Curl Enhancing Smoothie and sealed it in with a little olive oil before flat twisting my hair. Because I the hair is the back is much thicker than it is up front, I had to do a third one.  I wasn’t crazy about it but it’s all good.  I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!  I’ll leave them in for a few days to keep my the ends of my hair tucked away and protected and then let it out and see what kind of curls I get. :)

How was your weekend?

    This is one of my favorite looks on you! Probably since I’m so into the minimal thing, but its so simple and elegant, especially with that gorgeous hairdo :)
