Don’t do this - Using the hair curler on wet hair!
Don’t do this - Using the hair curler on wet hair!
I love curls, but for me it takes a while to get them as they don’t just happen to me. The silver lining is that once I get them, they usually last for at least 4 days, which is a dream come true. However, it’s not always been very easy to get the wavy hair of my dreams. It’s been a long road of trial and error until I got it right.   I used to try the curling iron as soon as I got damp hair, which resulted in a very long process and lots of burnt hairs. Not to mention that I can’t say I was over the moon with the results. It took me a while to realize that damp hair was a definite no-no. Actually, it was my hair stylist who insisted I never use a curling iron or straightener on wet or damp hair. Since then I always blow dry the hair before, and, more often lately, I wash it in the evenings and do the waves next morning.   When I first started with the Philips Style Care Prestige, I felt like I’ve found my way to the perfect waves in a fraction of the time I’ve used to spend on this. The automatic hair curler is not on the cheap side, but it’s very easy to use, you just need to put little strands of hair in the opening and it sucks the hair in. Also, it gets warm in a matter of seconds and I’ve noticed that it doesn’t burn my hair at all. You can curl the hair in different directions, and for different amounts of time. It’s customizable depending on your needs and I totally love this.   However, I was doing another mistake when using it – applying styling products before using the automatic curler. I’ve stopped doing this after I realized how much better it looks if I apply the styling foam when I’m done.   So, what I do now is just use the curler on dry hair, it takes me about 20 minutes with my long hair. I don’t curl all the hair, just hair strands here and there. After I’m done, I put my fingers through the curls, so they look a bit messy – I love this fresh and casual look. The hair styling foam or spray is optional, sometimes I used it, other times not, my waves are good either way.

Charlotte Tilbury - Hollywood Flawless Filter I can’t live without this! When I pucked up Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, I was expecting more of a shinnery highlight. To my surprise, it looked more like a glowy foundation. Yet on the skin, it looks more stunning than I ever thought!It has a glowy, natural finish. Unlike most highlighters that are purely glowy, this one has some slight coverage, making it blend seamlessly with foundation. I love how this layers on top of my foundation! It just looks like a natural everyday glow!I can’t live without this because it brings any makeup look a step up with a glow from within look. I also enjoy layering highlighter on top of this if I want a more intense glow. This comes in a few shades but in my opinion they need more dark shades. At first, I got a shade too dark but when I switched I was really impressed with how it blended into my skin. I’m curious to know how a lighter shade would look if I applied it to the high points of my face. This is definitely a holy grail and I would recommend this to anyone! ✨✨
