Let’s talk about curls! It’s hard to embrace your natural curls when frizz is a factor, especially during the humid summer season. Luckily, there are 5 simple steps you can take to minimize that unwanted frizz halo and flaunt smooth, defined, bouncy curls all day long! Cleanse Scalp Happy curls start with a healthy scalp! Instead of your regular shampoo, try a cleansing scalp treatment like the Heavy Lifting Bubbling Scalp Mask by Ouidad. This detoxifying mask applies like a gel but bubbles up when activated to eliminate product build-up and balance your scalp’s pH - both key elements for defined curls! Plus, who doesn’t love a product that you can feel working?Deep ConditionCurls crave moisture and chances are your conditioner isn’t cutting it. Swap out your conditioner for a hydrating hair mask like Elvive Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm. This rinse-out deep conditioner covers all your bases by tackling the 5 signs of damage: split ends, weakness, roughness, dullness, and dehydration. Plus, it claims to repair up to one year of damage in just one use! At just $6.99 you can’t go wrong with this one. Safely Detangle You may have heard that you shouldn’t brush curls, but safely detangling is essential for preventing knots, reducing breakage, and enhancing your natural curl pattern. Meet your new BFF: Tangle Teezer. This life-changing compact comb utilizes patented teeth technology to gently sort out even the toughest of tangles and is safe to use on all hair types! Pro tip: use in the shower while conditioning to effortlessly glide through your curls without damaging. Apply a curling cream A curl cream is a great idea for all curl types as it coats each strand to lock in moisture and eliminate frizz. Look for one that is lightweight and hydrating with curl-boosting ingredients like rice extract, keratin, and shea butter. Not Your Mother’s Curl Talk Defining Cream contains all three and is a fan-favorite among curly girls!

I did a little video with some of my favorite reds a little while ago, but I feel like NYX - Intense Butter Gloss in Apple Crisp deserves its own post! It's glossy, pigmented, AND affordable... we love to see it! 🙌🏾

There's no doubt that a lip gloss could give a wash of light color while still being versatile enough to go with the rest of our makeup look. Notice how the gloss also defines our lips and gives them volume? More and more beauty brands are improving their formulas, maximizing their shine, and creating tubes of gloss that are more irresistible, and we are 100 percent here for them!

are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
are pore bubbling masks worth it? 🧼🛁💬
since COVID has started, I know many people are on new (or refining old) skincare journeys and I’ve recently been experiencing some dryness/dehydrating as the winter rolls around, which also aggravates my already oily skin. I’ve worked in the beauty industry for a while and also was formerly an esthetician, so I can get picky with skincare and ingredients. ‼️for reference, my skin type is: combo (oily/dehydrated), formerly acneic, hyperpigmentation prone, and sensitive 🔬I’ve used Dr. Jart in the past and love that it’s a Korean, science-backed brand so I was stoked to try this Porecting Solution Mask! this mask promises fresh, clear glowing skin that deeply cleanses and purifies pores. the mask contains charcoal and saponine, which creates the bubbling effect you see in the above photo. this product does not contain sulfates, paragons, are phthalates. 🛁when I first took it out of its package, I thought there were *two* masks per package instead of one, but if you read the instructions, there’s actually a “mask film” on the actual mask itself that you’re supposed to remove, so make sure to do that! the actual mask is thick and full of product while the mask film is thinner and lighter in color. the directions also give you a tip to massage the mask to release the bubbling/foaming effect - I did this mask with my mom at the same time in separate rooms and she totally didn’t read the instructions so her mask didn’t bubble at all, so I would suggest to definitely massage the mask. 💬I left it on for 20 minutes and it continued to bubble about 5-10 minutes in, then stopped bubbling. you can hear the bubbles pop as the mask sits on your face, which is kinda weird but cool. the mask didn’t slip off AT ALL which is also a huge, even when I put a sweatshirt on over my head. after taking it off, the serum took about another 10 minutes to soak into my skin and my face felt super smooth and my pores looked tighter and more clean. I have a few sebaceous filaments on my nose that I sometimes pick at and as I was rubbing the serum into my skin, I saw that some of the sebaceous filaments on my nose were sloughing off (which is gross, but speaks to how well the product worked)! overall, I would definitely recommend and use this again! if you have oily skin or otherwise clogged pores, sebaceous filaments, blackheads, etc. I would suggest this for you. even if you have dry/normal skin, this would be a good option since my skin didn’t feel dried out at all afterward, even in my dry spell now, and felt rather hydrated and plump. five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
