Can you believe it is already December? It feels like I just did my November beauty bag round up! I haven’t added much since my last beauty bag post. There are only two products I started using since we last spoke about what’s in my bag. They both happen to be Kerastase, and they both happen to be styling products!

My oldest daughter is on her school’s cheerleading squad. Her hair has to be worn up, and it has to stay up; despite tumbling, jumping, dancing, and stunting. Since her her hair has to basically be cemented to her head, I am always on the hunt for the perfect hair spray. This is it!

The Kerastase laque extreme holds her hair in the perfect pony tail, allowing her to perform her dances, cheers, stunts, and jumps worry-free. Love that! She doesn’t need to spray it multiple times to make sure it is holding, it just holds. It is also working well because it does not leave her hair sticky or greasy. Kerasrase’s laque extreme also washes out nicely. It’s the perfect hair spray!

For me, I don’t need to have my hair perfectly perfect. In fact, I like movement in my hair. After all, my style is California Casual since this is where I am born and raised! I like my hair to be tame, without being stiff. Kerastase’s Aura Botanica eau de vagues is perfect for everyday hair-styling. It tames my flyaways and allows me to give myself a natural hairdo without looking like 1980s mall hair-let’s face it, I already did that in the ’80’s! haha, Love!

What’s in my June 2018 beauty bag

June 2018 is here! This month I am focusing on a summer beauty routine. Last month I switched up my skin care routine, this month I am switching up my hair care routine.

A few years ago I started to get quite a few grey hairs peeking out of my brown hair. The last thing I wanted to do was to get into a cycle where I needed to color my hair in order to cover my grays. Finally, last month, I realized I could hold out no more. The grey hairs were starting to really bother me. So, my hair stylist dyed my hair with a semi-permanent color and added back my highlights; making my hair look like my natural hair! Love it!

Now that my hair is color treated, I need to ensure I am properly caring for it so that it does not get horribly dry and brittle. I love these “Aura Botanica” hair care products from Kerastase. They have a fabulous scent, and moisturize my hair perfectly; especially since I have recently started coloring my hair. I am in love with these products!

In between hair color sessions, if my grey starts to show, my hair stylist recommended this great root touch-up product by Style Mist. Dark brown is my color, and it’s great for covering up my roots between appointments. This is a must-have!

I love this new eye shadow palette from Urban Decay. Don’t they always have the best palettes?! These colors are so pretty and perfect for summer. They are great for warm summer evening eye looks!

Since summer is a time for dry skin, this new moisturizing lip balm by Chanel is a life saver. It’s a great way to add subtle color while adding moisture to lips. Leave it to Chanel to invent something fabulous!
