Let's Talk: Hair & Makeup

This will be a scary post for one reason, and one reason only. 

Bed head. 

It's real. And it's scary! 
And no, I'm not ashamed that I shared that for the world to see. 

Erika and Andrea are talking today. And they're talking about hair and makeup routines. I try to keep mine short and sweet. Here we go....

After hitting snooze one or two times, and taking the dog out, 
I head to the bathroom to put my face on. 

I keep all of my makeup in one of these little containers. It's not very organized, but my bathroom vanity is tiny, and there just isn't room for organization. 

I pull my hair back, and slather on this moisturizer sample from Merle Norman. I love it. 

Then I paint this on my face. 

And top it with this for a more matte finish. 

NYX Cosmetics Stay Matte But Not Flat Powder Foundation Medium Beige

I am such a fan of these Mary Kay eye shadows. I've used them for years. While I've tried others, I keep coming back to these favorites.

Next goes the eyeliner (Cover Girl is my fave), and then the mascara.

And then we go to the hair. Y'all. My hair is a nightmare. 
It never curls the same, is always frizzy, and will look totally different by the end of the day. 

Because it was so crazy this morning, I decided to use the curling iron and create some loose curls. I've been on this method for about a week, but I'll probably get tired of it, and go back to the easy way. 

And we're finished.

The only product I used today was this big sexy hair spray. It has major hold, which I need if I want to see these orchestrated curls in a few hours.

And here's the finished look.  

Ready for Monday....or as ready as I can be. 

Share your hair and makeup routine; I'd love to see how you get ready!
