Too Faced is a little bit Country

Miranda Lambert, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, Oh my! These southern belles are not only known for their fashion trends and impeccable singing ranges but for their flawless complexions, sultry eyes, and shimmering lips all courtesy of Too Faced Cosmetics. These stylish songstresses’ rock in their glamorous looks, as they wow the crowds, and we’ll give you the inside scoop on which products are their fave go-to’s.

Miranda Lambert not only swept the Grammys but also received a bounty of beauty accolades for her chic and sophisticated look courtesy of Too Faced. Miranda’s makeup artist, Holly Chapman, used Too Faced Romantic Eye Collection ($35 at TooFaced.com), Too Faced Primed and Poreless Powder ($28 at TooFaced.com), and Too Faced Amazing Face Oil-Free Close Up Coverage Foundation ($32 at TooFaced.com) to achieve Miranda’s flawless, natural beauty allure. Holly Chapman says, “Miranda loved it! She loves Too Faced! She loves shimmer and glow and Too Faced has a ton of great products that have that effect. The eye kits are fabulous! She had to have them when she saw me using them the first time.” The spotlight was most definitely on Miranda and her A-list look all night long.

Super star, Carrie Underwood, trusted Too Faced for her most important makeup moment as she tied the knot to hunky hubby Mike Fisher. The Southern beauty used Too Faced LashGasm Mascara ($21 at TooFaced.com), Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Barely Legal ($19 at TooFaced.com), and Too Faced Naked Eye Collection ($35 at TooFaced.com) to look gorgeous as she radiated down the aisle.

Now, what do all these sensational beauties have in common? Miranda, Faith, and Carrie all go gaga over Too Faced Glamour Gloss ($19 at TooFaced.com) with its silky high shine, cooling sensation and slight plumping action due to the exclusive Lip Injection Comfort Plump. Faith Hill is as famous for her shimmering, soft lips as her soothing country chords. Faith is right in tune with her peers Miranda and Carrie, who also boast Too Faced Glamour Gloss as their pick. Too Faced has these performing pouts covered!

I’m in love with Clairol’s Root Touch Up!

I’m in between colorings right now, and my roots were in desperate need of help. I’m starting to find gray hairs – so I try to stay on top of coloring my hair. Thing is – constantly dying my hair is making it brittle and dry! So I try to space out the coloring, but when I do that – my roots really show!

I went to Safeway yesterday, and picked up Clairol’s Root Touch-Up for only $6.99! I was VERY skeptical, because A) I’ve always used the same brand of hair dye, so switching it up makes me nervous and B) it comes with this little teenie bottle of hair dye (which didn’t look like enough!).  BUT I was pursuaded by its promise to match my hair dye – GUARANTEED!

I grabbed the Dark Brown box – and went home.

I read the instructions – how can it be this easy? Apply to roots with the color using a handy little brush – and leave on for 10 minutes. That’s it!

I applied the hair dye directly to the roots of the hair that frames my face, and came back downstairs to work for a 10 minutes. After about 10 minutes, I showered the dye off – and amazingly, this product delivered exactly what it promised! Check out the picture below! The roots match my hair color perfectly! The grays are gone, and my hair looks like I’ve just dyed it!

I love this product, and I’m happy I found it. It’s going to save me from dying all my hair constantly!

You can find this product at any drug store – heck, any grocery store probably carries it. Give it a try!
