Product Love | Dove Style+Care Flexible Hold Hairspray

I have had a love/hate relationship with hairspray. It's either too sticky or too strong and leaves the hair stiff or it just didn't give me the type of hold I wanted. If I wear my hair curled, waved or straight I need a hair spray with a light hold to help the look last all day.

My Product Love right now is for:  Dove Style+Care - Flexible Hairspray!

I love that I can do the following:

  • Wave with a wand - Keeps the wave natural and helps to hold it longer
  • Bouncy Curls - Allows me to prep the hair before I curl to keep the curl defined
  • Textured Look - I can add a bit of texture to the hair and can still put my fingers through it

It has a light scent which is perfect so it doesn't over power you when you want to spray the EFF out of it! I also like that I can finger style my hair and create the look I want. The best part is that it's a great working spray for teasing the hair or for prepping the hair before any heat styling tool!

I picked up this baby at Walmart on SALE, so be sure to check it out! It's the perfect product for Beachy waves!

Beauty Look | Sexy Hot Pink/Purple Lips!

Lipsticks are such a hot makeup product right now!! We are so lucky that Makeup companies have created versatile lip products that allow us to have access to so many unique colours, tones and finishes. Whether you want bold lips or a soft finish or just want something daring, you can have it all!

Back in the 90's, I had to constantly mix colours or layer colours together to create the vividness or shade I wanted. Old habits die hard, but you can still create unique tones and finishes when you layer a lighter lip gloss with a different shade of lips. Add a liner and you can really transform the lips all together.

So here are the three products I used to create this STUNNING lip look:

1. Beautique Defining Lip Pencil in WINE
2. Cover Girl Lip Perfection Lipstick in DIVINE #330
3. MAC Lipglass in PERKY

The steps to achieve this look were pretty simple. I lined and filled the lips with the liner, layered on the lipstick on top and finished with the gloss on the bottom lip, focusing the application on the centre of the bottom of the lips. Such a hot shade for Spring/Summer 2015!
