It’s been over a year since I first posted my haircare routine and while some things are the same, many things have changed! Gone are the days of dousing my head in brown Listerine (yes, I seriously used to do that) and in are the days of lightly hydrating shampoos and high quality styling tools.
Hair woes; I know them. And by know them, I mean that we were pretty much attached by the hips for years and years. I’ve finally found the regimen that keeps my hair and scalp happy and healthy! I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on my hair lately, so I thought it would be fun to write about the products I use. I’m going to split this post into two parts: my cleansing routine (vital) and styling routine (probably what you’re curious about!).
You know that you love makeup when, despite having a the flu, you still drag yourself out of bed to do your makeup (with the utmost care, I must add) before collapsing back into bed. On this particular day, I even wandered outside in my feverish delirium to take a few pictures of a job well done. I’m still loving using a pencil liner to tightline instead of my standard black liquid liner. And the best part of all? It takes a fraction of the time!

While I have yet to master the art of taking high quality makeup photos, I wanted to share my look from yesterday. As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m pretty predictable with my makeup, but I got radical and tried a new color AND technique. Gasp. Although I should note that the purpley color was in my trusty Lorac Pro Palette- I simply hadn’t dipped my brush in it since I bought the palette last year. Instead of doing my usual light to dark gradient in shades of gold and brown, I tried something a little different. I left a highlight in the center of my eye and focused the main color, a soft purple shade, on the inner and outer corner, as well as in the crease. I also didn’t do my usual swipe of liquid liner, but instead worked some pencil liner into the roots of my lashes. I’d love to post a makeup tutorial sometime soon!
