Great Hair for Fall from Dove!

One of the best smelling dry shampoos I have used, I love the fresh clean scent of the Dove Dry Shampoo. The mist is ultra fine and worked amazingly well at cleaning my hair and adding volume. The clean look and feel lasted all day and I love it didn’t leave any residue on my hair.

Halloween Costumes made easy with Q-tips! #BeautyQtips

qtip halloween in a box

Last week the mailman brought me something extra special. My Halloween Costume in a Box from Q-tips. My kit included makeup to create my looks, falsies, Pond’s cream cleanser and Precision Tip Q-Tips to create my look. The Q-Tip style guide had lots of great makeup looks but I decided to try a sugar skull after falling in love with the Book of Life movie.

I followed a YouTube tutorial to create my first sugar skull look. I love Q-tips for regular makeup clean ups but the Precision Tip applicators were amazing for clean ups as well as application. It was easy to wet them for more intense look from my shadow. And I like I could use multiple Q-Tips so I wasn’t cleaning brushes every two minutes.

The Q-Tips made for much easier detail work and I love how well I could apply my eye shadow with them. Being my first sugar skull look I had a few errors and the Precision Tips were perfect for cleaning up just the mistake and not taking off makeup I wanted to keep.

I didn’t have any flowers to create an authentic dia de los muertos headpieces. So I found a black lace scarf to improvise my look. It all came together much faster than I thought and I am excited to try more fun looks with Q-Tips.

After all those layers of makeup I was a bit worried I was going to have a heck of time removing it all. I took a dollop of the Pond’s Cream Cleanser and after working it around my face with a bit of water no more makeup. My skin felt and looked great without any harsh scrubbing. Before you start your Halloween makeup look be sure to grab some Q-Tips to make the job easier.

Q-Tips can be purchased local drugstore, market or mass retailer.
