Beauty with Blaine | Makeup, Hair and Jewelry Tips
As the end of summer quickly approaches and the school year starts back up, you want to make sure that you look your best when attending all of those final summer celebrations, parties, and back to school events.
Here are a few of my favorite makeup and hair products that I use regularly to keep my hair and face looking fabulous! Also featured are a couple pieces from one of my favorite new jewelry designers in Houston, that will complete your look for any occasion!
In order to beat the Houston humidity and keep my hair looking great throughout the day, I use these four products, and I don’t know what I’d do without them! (I also have to give credit to my amazing hairstylist, Eric Vaughn, owner of REV Salon in Houston, who keeps my hair looking healthy and beautiful all year round).
After shampooing and conditioning my hair I first use a few sprays of Blow Pro Smooth You Only smoother to decrease frizziness, protect my hair from the effects of blow drying, and give it a smooth, silky finish. After brushing and blow drying, I set my hair with Ouidad Finishing Mist before styling with heat tools. After styling I like to complete my look with Bed Head Masterpiece Hair Spray. It gives my hair the perfect amount of hold, blocking humidity yet still giving my hair a fun, soft, and bouncy look. For busy days, when I don’t have time to fully style my hair, I always use Dry Bar Detox Dry Shampoo. It is a life saver and gives my hair volume and rejuvenates it effortlessly. It also smells incredible!
It is such a fun way to add to your natural beauty and highlight your facial features by adding some fabulous makeup products to make your face pop. Aside from applying a great mascara, it’s always wonderful to use an amazing lip and check combo to add some color to your face.
Here are some of my favorite makeup items that I can’t live without, and will still look great while transitioning into the new fall season. These four makeup products are all Makeup By Sheila cosmetics, which is owned and operated by makeup artist, Sheila Ybarra in Houston. Featured are Tahitian Tan tanning powder which is applied underneath your cheek bones for a contoured look, and Victory blush which is applied on top of the cheek. This combination gives a natural glow to your face. For lips I love to combine Innocent lip stick and top it with Naked Bronze lip gloss.
A hot, trendy, and colorful jewelry line that I have fallen in love with recently has some fabulous new pieces that I’m obsessed with. St. Raine Jewelry by Houston designer Sarah Strain, specializes in unique and globally inspired, fashionable custom jewelry designs. It’s sure to catch attention at any party, event, or occasion. Here is a look at items from her new collection.
I love these beauty products and I highly recommend trying them out! They will be great to use for the upcoming season and will add an extra sparkle to your look. I hope you all enjoy the last few days of summer and make the most out of every day!
