HOW TO GET TEXTURED HAIR

IMG_5269.JPG

Hello & Happy Thursday! Breann here and let’s be real, I love textured hair. There’s nothing better than looking like you have some natural curl, or like you just got home from the beach. Sea salt sprays are all the rage in replicating that textured style, but a lot of them can easily dry out your hair. With all the damage we get from heating tools, hair color, and the sun, the last thing we need is to dry out our locks. That’s where Bloke Body’s Sea Salt Mist comes in. It’s infused with coconut and other oils to help hydrate your hair! The best part is, you can also apply it to your hair while it’s dry to give you that messy, matte finish. Here’s how I used it on my lifeless hair that needed a bit more body.

IMG_5273 2.JPG

I hadn’t washed my hair for a few days before this post, and didn’t have time to shampoo and blow it out before I left for the day. It was pretty dull and on the verge of being thrown up into a bun.

IMG_5274 2.JPG

Taking the Sea Salt Mist from Bloke, I flipped my hair over and sprayed all over, concentrating on my roots.

IMG_5268.JPG

After it was applied, I scrunched my hair and rubbed a bit of the product into my scalp… that way it could really settle into my hair. IMG_5270.JPGAfterward I used the curling iron on a few different pieces to give it a bit more texture. Concentrate on the pieces surrounding your face. I you feel like you need it, spray a bit more of the mist on your ends, and you’re done!

FLAWLESS FACE MAKEUP

IMG_5205.JPG

You know how every once in a while you have a really great makeup day? Like so good that you can’t help but look at your reflection in windows and take an embarrassing amount of selfies? I love those days, but for the longest time it seemed like they just never happened – or if they did it was only once in a blue moon. For most of us, the stars need to align perfectly or we need to spend hours primping to have a flawless face. After years of learning all about skincare and makeup, I’ve finally unlocked a few secrets to having perfect face makeup regularly!

IMG_5190.JPG

To start, cleansing your skin with an exfoliating wash will make a world of a difference. Not only does exfoliating help with acne, it also clears away dull and dry skin, leaving you with a smooth glow. I love the Coffee and Sweet Orange scrub from Bloke Body – I use it about twice a week. A good moisturizer is the next step. I typically do both these steps at night so that my face has a few hours to soak up the moisture.

IMG_5193.JPG

I always recommend a good liquid foundation for flawless skin. There are so many great options at Target, like Sonia Kashuk brand, but I recently picked up the Studio Fix Fluid from Mac while I was on vacation and ran out of makeup! (My color is Nc20) I love that this has such great coverage and SPF. Sun protection is serious guys! I’m not a huge concealer fan, so if you find that’s absolutely necessary, apply that first, then your liquid foundation, then blend. I apply my foundation with a kabuki brush by first dotting along my face to distribute the product, then I blend in.

IMG_5194.JPG

IMG_5195.JPGI got this color earlier in the summer when I had a bit more color to my skin, so blending along my jawline to my neck is critical. Even if your color matches, make sure to blend, blend, blend! I apply my liquid foundation all over my face, except for directly under my eyes for now.

IMG_5197.JPG

Next apply bronzer and blush. There are two places I apply bronzer. 1. Along my cheekbones back towards my ears 2. From my temples sweeping upward to my forehead. I’ll then apply blush to the apples of my cheeks.

IMG_5199.JPGAfter blush and bronzer is done, I’ll usually take that time to apply my eyeshadow and eye makeup before putting foundation or concealer under my eyes. (You don’t want dust from the eyeshadow sticking to the foundation making you start your makeup all over again.) When that’s done, I’ll use my finger to apply the liquid foundation all under my eyes in a triangle. Use light taps with the tip of your finger to apply – don’t rub or sweep it on. This can cause streaks, and you don’t want to pull on your under-eye skin. It’s sensitive!

IMG_5203.JPGSince my skin is naturally really dry, I never apply powder. However, if you have a translucent or setting powder you like to use, apply with a fluffy brush. Next, I use the Lalita Facial Elixir from Flora Apothecary to set my make up and give me an extra boost of hydration!

IMG_5201.JPG

IMG_5202.JPGLastly, I’ll apply mascara to my bottom lashes and my favorite lip color! I’ve been all about that matte Kylie Jenner lip lately (minus the obvious use of injectable fillers) – this matte lip color from ELF in “Natural” is the best I’ve found!

With help from eyelash extensions, I do all my makeup in under 10 minutes – including my brows and eyeshadow/ liner. The best part is, it lasts for hours and my skin always looks flawless!

EYELASH EXTENSIONS 101

IMG_4516Eyelash extensions are one of those amazing miracle beauty services. They require zero mascara, and little maintenance between appointments.  They are a must-have service for a lot of women, but there are a few unknown things about having them done that even seasoned lash service clients might not know about. Today I want to give everyone a little 101 class on these babies.

To start, eyelash extensions are individual synthetic lashes that are adhered to your real lashes, piece by piece, for the appearance of longer, thicker eyelashes. They typically last about 3 weeks before needing to be filled. To get the best information possible, I met with my dear friend Laura, a licensed esthetician who has been doing lashes for quite a while. She was kind enough to let me pick her brain, swap stories with, and even do my own lashes.

IMG_4513Before booking your appointment, it’s important to find an extensionist that is also a licensed esthetician. Bonus points if they are certified in eyelash extensions as well. The reason being, you want someone who has been educated, particularly with something so close to sensitive facial areas like your eyes. Additionally, they will know all the sanitation processes needed to keep tools and products up to standard. Don’t be afraid to ask your extensionist how long they’ve been doing it for, what products they use, and what their prices are. Be sure to let them know ahead of time if you have any allergies to adhesives, or if you have any concerns about the actual process.

IMG_4518As you get ready to take off for your appointment, there are a couple things to do. First, keep in mind that your initial full set of eyelash extensions could take up to 2 1/2 hours to complete. Remember that the extensions are being glued to each individual eyelash – that takes some time! Keep your schedule open for that amount of time. You don’t want your extensionist to feel rushed to get you out the door, and end up with a poor set of lashes. Also, you’ll be laying on a cushioned table for a long time, unable to move. Be sure to wear something comfortable, and maybe bring a sweater in case you’re prone to getting cold in air conditioning.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, be sure to throughly remove all your eye makeup before the appointment. Any mascara or eyeliner residue can prevent the adhesive from bonding correctly to your natural lash, resulting in extensions not lasting as long. Try not to use any oil based makeup removers as well – perhaps just a warm, damp washcloth instead!

IMG_4514As your extensionist works away, you might begin to get drowsy. Be sure to let them know you might fall asleep, that way they can be prepared if your head dozes off to the side, and also so they don’t try to have a conversation with a sleeping person! Ha!

Now you may have a few expectations before going in, but there are a few things to keep in mind that will save both you and your extensionist a possible headache:

Firstly, your extensionist cannot put extensions where there are no lashes. A lot of us tend to get “bald” spots near the inner corners of our eyelids. While they can certainly try to fan out lashes to give the appearance of a fuller look, they simply cannot just glue an extension directly onto the lid. Not only will it likely not adhere, it would irritate and hurt your eyelid terribly.

Secondly, if you have naturally straight lashes, don’t ask for extensions with a lot of curl or volume. Since your natural lashes are straight, they will eventually begin to separate from the extension. You’re going to want extensions with curl and volume somewhat similar to your natural lashes. While you may not end up with lashes up to your eyebrows like a Kardashian, you will still end up with beautiful thick extensions, that truthfully look more natural.

IMG_4517

IMG_4515Don’t be freaked out when your extensionist tells you they need to tape down your bottom lashes. This is to prevent the adhesive from spilling onto the lower ones and gluing your eyelashes shut! The tape will not pull out your lower lashes as it typically has a very gentle adhesive. After they begin to apply the extensions, it is imperative to NOT open your eyes until you’re told. The fumes from the glue can cause you to tear up, which could make all the extensions fall out. Try not to get the lashes wet for 24-48 hours after you appointment, and do not use any makeup remover on them.

IMG_4512Post Appointment Care:

  • As mentioned, don’t get the extensions wet for at least 24-48 hours after application. Try to also avoid steam rooms, or super hot showers. The intense heat and humidity can cause the adhesive to soften.
  • Do not put mascara over them. Granted, the reason behind getting extensions is partly to not have to use mascara, but you’d be surprised how many people will continue to use it. Doing so can loosen the extension, or completely pull it out.
  • Lightly comb through them if they get tangled, trying your best not to pull one out. It’s normal for you to lose a few extensions as the days go on. Try not to pull out any extensions if they start to droop, and avoid rubbing your eyes if you can.
  • To some, these might seem a bit high maintenance, but the benefit of not having to curl your eyelashes and apply mascara is worth it alone to me. Going swimming without looking like a raccoon, and waking up feeling pretty in the mornings are a great bonus too!

DIY BATH MELTS

IMG_4179

July in Arizona has only two types of weather : blistering hot or monsoons. Usually towards the end of the month, we start to see some pretty crazy rain storms hit the valley. Although the days after are a bit muggy, the bit of relief from the sun is extremely welcome. During those summer showers, one of my favorite things to do is take a warm bath and listen to the thunder.

One of the best things about taking a bath is choosing which cocktail of bubbles, skincare products, and scents we want to add to it. I’m always looking for something to jazz the water up a bit, but I also need it to take care of my skin. Summertime calls for lots of hours spent in the pool. When I’ve been in the chlorine water for a long time, the effects of pool chemicals paired with being out in the sun really takes a toll on my skin. I need products that can do a bit of a detox, as well as keep it from drying out. Enter bath melts. These little guys have been my favorite things to make on weekends! The best part is they only require 3 ingredients!

IMG_4172

DIY Bath Melts

– 1/2 cup Baking Soda

– 1/2 cup Epsom Salts (y’all know how much we love epsom salts!)

– 1 TBS Coconut Oil

IMG_4171IMG_4173STEP ONE:

Simply combine all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until well blended. You want the mixture to stick together, but not be so wet that it sticks to your hands. If you find it’s too thin, just add a bit more baking soda. You’ll want to be able to pick it up in your hand and have it be mold-able.

IMG_4174IMG_4175STEP TWO:

Next, pat into the bottom of a cupcake tin – use cupcake liners to avoid an oily mess and for easy removal. Let it set for a couple hours in the fridge, or overnight on the counter to harden and take shape.

IMG_4178IMG_4177STEP THREE:

When done, simply pop out and store in a tupperware container. Use one per bath. The coconut oil will help moisturize your skin, and the baking soda with epsom salts help with a light detox!

TWISTED UP SUMMER HAIRSTYLE

IMG_4101 2.JPG
I could not be more excited that it’s 4th of July weekend! This holiday is one of my absolute favorites, I have so many wonderful memories of times spent BBQing, swimming, and celebrating our beautiful country.
Most of the time, we try to get out of town for the fourth to avoid the heat, the crowds, and the heat. Anyone will tell you that July temperatures in Arizona are nothing short of brutal. Unfortunately, it looks like my family will be stuck here for the holiday, so styling my hair to make the back of my neck a little more comfortable is a must.
It’s really easy to default to an easy ponytail or top knot when the heat is too unbearable to wear your hair down. I myself have fallen victim to the constant bun when the going gets rough. For the holiday though, I want to do something a little different, something that stands out. Now you guys all know I’m not a fan of anything that takes more than a few minutes. I was inspired by this summer hairstyle Riawna Capri did on Julianne Hough for a DWTS event. I love the separation of the hair, so I came up with a more dramatic effect using twists instead. Here’s the simple how-to:
IMG_4110 3.JPG
Start with 1-2 day dirty hair. The grit will help to hold the style together. If you feel like it’s a bit to oily, spray a bit of dry shampoo at your roots.
IMG_4107 2.JPG
Grab a handful of bobby pins and maybe some hairspray if your hair doesn’t want to stay put.
IMG_4108 2.JPG
Starting from your hairline, grab a 1-1.5 inch section of hair and begin twisting back.
IMG_4109 2.JPG
Secure with a bobby pin and continue around your head.
IMG_4105 2.JPG
You can loosen the twists and make them bigger by gently pulling the outside of it until you reach your desired volume. If you pull a lot of it, be prepared to secure the twist with extra bobby pins.
IMG_4106 2.JPG
IMG_4104 2.JPG
You’ll be left with the long pieces in the back. Simply twist around, or form into small buns to give the back of the style a bit of volume.
IMG_4102 2.JPG
Pull some wispy pieces around your face if you so desire, then top of with a bit of hairspray and you’ll be ready to watch fireworks and enjoy some BBQ well into the evening!

‘DON’T SWEAT IT’ SUMMER MAKEUP TRICKS

IMG_3990Summer is *hands down* the worst season for makeup. With heat and humidity constantly hanging around, our faces basically melt off within a few hours. I’ve fallen victim to this several times.

Recently, my husband and I have gotten really into golf. We’ve played a couple of games, and although it isn’t a terribly physical sport, being out in the hot sun can really make you sweat. I remember looking at myself in the mirror in the car just after the first time we played nine holes, and I couldn’t believe what my face looked like! There were lines down my cheeks from the sweat, and my mascara had melted underneath my eyes. Thank goodness I had sunglasses on! After that, I was bound and determined to find something to literally “save face” out in the sun and heat. Today I’m sharing three simple beauty hacks to keep your summer makeup looking natural and fresh in the great outdoors.

IMG_3991

IMG_3994

1. Foundation

If you’re a gal like me with discoloration, or just need something to even out your skin tone, foundation is probably one of your top 3 beauty products. While outdoors, you never want to wear something with full coverage. Why? For one, while you’re in natural lighting, it’s far more easy to see all the make up caked on your face than in florescent light. The second reason is, if you sweat and then wipe your face, that stuff will slide right off leaving you with a big streak. Instead, I recommend sticking with just an under eye concealer and tinted moisturizer. Both will have light coverage, leaving your skin with a nice glow that’s far more natural than your daily coverage. I love the tinted moisturizer from Sonia Kashuk, plus the fact that is has SPF makes me SUPER happy!

 

IMG_3992

2. Blush and Bronzer

Powdered blushes and bronzers are another product that will easily streak, or make you look far too done up for time spend outdoors. I highly recommend using a cream version instead. Just a light sweep should do it. One hack that I absolutely love when I’m out of blush, is using a bit of lipstick instead! Put a little on the tip of your finger, dab on across your cheekbone, then blend with a kabuki brush. It is such an easy hack, and with the right blending, looks so natural!

IMG_3996

IMG_3997

3. Don’t sweat about your sweat

I know it’s easier said than done, but try not to worry too much about what you look like. You are, after all, outside having a good time rather than being stuck in an office. Concentrating on what you look like by constantly taking a peek in the mirror will only distract from the memories you could otherwise be making. Chances are, nobody else will really notice if your mascara bleeds a little bit. They’ll be more focused on having great conversation and good times with you.

Although, a little waterproof mascara might help too! 🙂

HOMEMADE INSECT REPELLENT

BREANN0008A few months ago, Lauren, Stancy and I headed out to a gorgeous Phoenix neighborhood to take a few photos of moi for the website. It was a warm Autumn evening, and the lighting was seriously dreamy. Having your photo taken can be a really awkward experience, but Stancy and Lauren gave me the best direction, and really helped me to feel confident and comfortable. Their work definitely resonates in the images Stancy captured, but there was one thing about the shoot they just couldn’t help me with.

You can’t see it in the photos, but there were about a MILLION mosquitos swarming my legs. (Okay, maybe a million is a bit dramatic, but there were definitely a lot.) I could feel several at a time biting at my shins and ankles. My face may seem cool and collected, but I was screaming inside. I had about a dozen large welts on each of my legs for about a week afterward – not pretty.

Since then, homemade insect repellent is one thing that always remains in my cosmetic bag. Sure, it’s kind of like medicine rather than a beauty product, but if you guys had seen my legs, you’d definitely consider it for vanity purposes too!

IMG_3908One thing I can’t stand about store-bought insect repellent is obviously the scent. Most repellents smell like poison to me, and to be honest, I don’t like using products with so many chemicals on my skin. All you long time subscribers of #LKbeauty know I love to take a natural approach to things, and this is no exception. After a little online research, I came up with my own blend of insect repellant!

IMG_3910

YOU WILL NEED:

– A small spray bottle – really any size will do.

– Witch Hazel (can be found at Walgreens and even Target)

– Lemon or Citronella Essential Oil

– Melaleuca Essential Oil

HOW TO MAKE IT:

– Simply fill the bottle about 3/4 full of Witch Hazel.

– Next add 5 drops of each oil

– Shake the bottle vigorously before each use and apply liberally.

– It’s THAT simple!

Since the weather has been warming up here in Arizona, we are starting to see little mosquitos re-populate. I’ve been using this blend for a few weeks now, and all the pests have steered clear of me. What I love most, is the citrus scent! It’s really perfect for this time of year, and I doubt anyone will tell you that your essential oils smell bad. I now look forward to a Summer of bite free legs, and more time spent outdoors!

FAUX TAN AT HOME

Processed with VSCOcam with c3 presetWe’ve all been there. You’re at a beginning of Summer pool party/ BBQ, ready to soak in all the rays and enjoy a little home-cooking. You’ve worked on your swimsuit body for months and are ready to show off the fruits of your labor. As you’re getting ready and put on that cute new swimsuit, you look in the mirror and realize one thing: You are paler than the freaking moon.

IMG_3849

This has basically been the story of my life for the past seven years or so. I was addicted to tanning beds my senior year of high school, and was never seen without a golden hue of skin. I loved having a sun-kissed glow – until I learned about a little thing called melanoma. Ever since then, I’ve sworn off of almost all contact with the sun and am a huge advocate for sunscreen. While I no longer worry about the health of my skin, I still crave having a dark tan when the warmer weather appears. While I would never step foot back into a tanning salon again, there are quite a few ways to get a perfect faux tan at home! Today, I’m going to share a few of my tried and true tips for achieving the perfect sunless tan.

My first and most important piece of advice is to take it slow. Too many times I’ve seen girls attempt to go from their ivory skin to “I just spent two weeks in Hawaii” tan in one go. This will almost ALWAYS leave you with streaks, spots, and uneven color. I suggest picking up a tanner that works gradually, like this one from L’Oreal.

IMG_3850Step 1.

Start with shaving your legs (or arms if you feel so inclined) either a couple hours or even the night before you apply self-tanner. The reason being is that you always want to scrub and exfoliate your skin just before applying the self-tanner. If you shave and then scrub, you can irritate your skin, creating a hostile surface for the tanner. Not to mention, the scrub can even burn your new smooth legs if it has ingredients like salt in it, which most products do.

IMG_3848

Processed with VSCOcam with c3 preset

Step 2.

Find an exfoliating scrub that has moisturizing elements in it, such as coconut oil. I highly suggest using the coffee and sweet orange scrub from Bloke Body. Most folks will tell you to avoid anything oils in it before applying tanner, because it creates a barrier between your skin and the faux color. While that is true, I don’t necessarily believe they should be avoided entirely. Most of us do not have perfectly even skin. You very likely have dry patches on certain surfaces – I know I especially do on my shins. By using a scrub that has a bit of moisturizer, you will help to even out those parts of the skin. If you’re worried about it not allowing the tanner to really soak in, wait a couple hours after scrubbing for your skin to dry completely.

Processed with VSCOcam with c3 preset

Step 3.

Apply the tanner in a well lit area – preferably in natural sunlight so you can see exactly what you’re doing. I always start with quite a bit of the tanner in my hands so I can cover a large area quickly. Use large strokes and plan on blending in afterward. Small strokes and only covering small areas will cause overlapping and streaking. If you see any streaks or weirds spots near areas like your ankles, take a damp washcloth and gently rub in until blended.

IMG_3852Step 4.

As soon as you have applied the tanner, get to a sink and wash your hands as quickly as you can with soap, warm water and a washcloth. Make sure to wipe in between your fingers – there’s nothing more obvious about a faux tan than orange hands.

IMG_3853

Step 5.

Let it dry for a couple of hours before putting any sunblock or lotion on.  To build up your tan, wait a day to shower and apply again. It will always come off when you get your skin wet again, but if you’re consistent it will definitely start to stick!
