Make Her Up is doing it too!

So I decided I was #downfor30! I challenged myself to take my hair OUT OF THAT hair tie, and style it! I like to call this my “Summer’s THIIIIIS Close” hairdo.

I’m going to walk you through how I achieved this look – using ONLY Frizz Ease products!

See this (below)? This is me on an everyday basis. C’mon girlfriend – let that hair down!

I’m going to be honest. At this point I didn’t even have makeup on. So I stopped everything – let my hair down – and put makeup on!

Step 1: Wash hair.

IMG_1818

Step 2: I applied 10 pumps or so of Frizz Ease’s Go Curler to my damp hair and then blow dried my hair.  (See above)

  • Activated with the heat from your curling iron or hot rollers this breakthrough formula creates your best salon-smooth curls that last for up to 48 hours.
  • Defines and tightens curls for bouncy, salon-smooth style with a touchable hold.
  • Curls can be touched up the next day to reactivate bouncy style

Here are the only two products I used on my hair! Frizz Ease’s Go Curler – and Frizz Ease’s Expert Finish Polishing Serum!

Step 3: Pick your favorite hot curlers. I separated my hair into two sections – top & bottom. I applied the hot curlers to the bottom hair first, and then finished with the top.

Step 4: Time to let those curlers set! I grabbed myself a nice cooler, and went and sat in the backyard for a few minutes. It was a rare – beautiful afternoon in Oregon, so I thought I’d enjoy the nice weather!

Step 5: Take those curlers out – and see what you’ve got! I was SHOCKED with how well the curls set. It had to have been the Go Curler I used on my hair before I dried it. The curls looked amazing!

Step 6: I squirted a little bit of Frizz Ease’s Polishing Serum into my hand, and ran it through my completed hair to get rid of any flyaways I had! The end look was absolutely gorgeous! I will definitely use these two products again when curling my hair!

Frizz Ease’s Polishing Serum: Helps Stop Styling Damage

  • Controls Flyaways
  • Boosts Shine

New! Febreze Spring Collection

1238965167223

Is there anything better than a warm Spring day? My favorite part of Spring is the first few warm days. Everything is in bloom , the air smells like cherry blossoms and the sun feels amazing warming my skin. We hit our first few days of 70 degree weather in Portland and I couldn’t wait to hit the waterfront. Whether I am people watching, reading a good book or hitting the Saturday market I love warm Spring days.

When I am not out enjoying the sun, I have been all about Spring Cleaning. Organizing and deep cleaning my house. Once I have it all clean I want it to smell great too and I love all the Febreze Spring scents to create the perfect scent. The new line is fantastic Sweet Pea and Nectar are my favorite scents of the bunch. I love the fresh clean scent and how great my house smells when I use them. And they even have car air fresheners perfect to keep my car smelling great while I’m carting kids around to sports and school.

MAKE UP FOREVER has recently announced that they are launching a new Academy for experienced Makeup Artists who are looking to take their career to the next level!

MAKE UP FOREVER is launching a TV & Cinema Academy at la Cité du Cinéma near Paris, where a group of movie professionals are located.

Beginning next fall, the Academy will open it’s doors to artists looking for a career in SFX, prosthetics, wigmaking, beauty makeup, and aging techniques. The courses will range anywhere from one week to six months, depending on what you’re looking for.

The Academy will not only have the best teachers, but they will also bring in international key speakers, and TV and Cinema experts to give specialized advice to students.

This sounds absolutely perfect for anyone who’s looking to transition into a more specialized field!

“Setting up the Cinema Academy at the Cité du Cinéma seemed an obvious move. MAKE UP FOR EVER is going to apply the quality and rigor of its teaching to the industry. It’s a logical extension of the Paris Academy and its worldwide Academy network”, says Véronique Angelino-Pegum, Academies Director WWD. “Our aim is that, when they leave the Academy, these Make-up Artists will be recognized for their command of technical skills that are particularly appropriate to Television and Cinema, for their creativity, alongside substantial work experience within the professional structures of the Cité du Cinéma.”

SPONSORED POST: Liquid-Plumr® Hair Clog Eliminator™

If you’re a woman, you know the importance of a good Hair Clog Eliminator. Okay, maybe that’s just me, but I have long hair – it happens! I think it probably happens to us all! My sons like to remind me (constantly) about how much hair I lose. I wonder if it’s normal? Do all ya’ll lose crazy amounts of hair? Maybe it’s my kids…. they’re making me crazy. :)

Probably twice a year, I need a good – trustworthy Hair Clog Remover. Honestly I ALWAYS go with Liquid Plumr. It just WORKS. I know it works. Why spend money on something I’m not confident about?

Liquid Plumr has released an amazing new Hair Clog Eliminator line – that gets rid of your clogs in no time!

Our thickest gel ever is formulated to coat pipe walls, unclog your drain and destroy that Sasquatch-like hair clump that’s slowin’ the flow in your shower. Just pour, wait 15 minutes and flush that hair right out of your life.

This drain cleaner is safe for all septic systems and pipes, including PVC, plastic, copper, and old pipes.

In the new ad above, Liquid Plumbr lets Beau explain why the Hair Clog Eliminator is the best. I mean, when he says it – it even sounds sexy, doesn’t it? What do you think about Beau, eh?
