It’s DECORATING TIME!

Yeah, I’m THAT person. My holiday decorations are up and twinkling before Thanksgiving has even come and passed.

My neighbors can hear my Dean Martin Greatest Hits album floating through the air as I bombard them with the aroma of my sugar cookies baking in the oven.

SUE ME!

(I’m looking at you, Barb.)

Anyway, I thought I would take a break from the usual beauty breakdown and share my decorations with you! Looking forward to seeing some of your own as the Holidays get closer.

XOXO,

HOT LIST: Pixi Glow Mist

WE ARE OBSESSED.

Enter Pixi by Petra Glow Mist. This stuff is our holy grail of multi-use oils. Best part? You can buy it without breaking the bank.

So let’s get to it. It doesn’t feel quite like an oil. Probably because it’s a mixture of oils and other natural hydrating ingredients. You shake it up and spritz it right onto your skin. IT FEELS AMAZING!!! We’ve been using it for about 6 months, and we’re gonna share our findings!

For starters, I’ve been through my fair share of hydrating oils and serums. So far, the ones that work best for me tend to be the pricier ones. (Think Kiehl’s or Origins.) BUT — Pixi Glow Mist holds its ground.

My favorite way to use it is to spritz it onto my hands and pat it onto my skin before applying my makeup. Here are our favorite multi-uses:

  • Mist it directly onto skin after stepping out of the shower.
    • Your damp skin will absorb and set the product quickly, and leave you with a refreshing glow.
  • Spritz it onto your makeup brushes before application.
  • Mist it onto your skin as the day wears on to give your makeup a dewy finish.
  • Spray  it onto damp hair for a hydrating boost.
  • Mix it in with your daily moisturizer for extra hydration and finish.
  • Mist it over your body lotion and let set.

Want to try it out for yourself? You can purchase here.

Be sure to send us any new or creative ways you use the mist!!

XOXO,

Mix Your Own Haircolor!

GIRL, please.

No need to buy box color. Watch our easy tutorial!

In this quick tutorial, we’ll show you how easy it is to mix your own hair color at home. I’ve never had good results using box color, and frankly, there’s never enough dye to accommodate all of my hair.

I feel like a lot of people are intimidated by the idea of mixing their own color. For those of you who might think it’s a skill reserved solely for licensed cosmetologists, think again!

Plus, there’s a bunch of added benefits to whipping up your own color. For example, I like to add in 2 packets of Ardell Red/Gold Color Corrector to my dye. It eliminates the red undertones which naturally appear in my hair. When you buy box color, you never really know what you’re getting. I’ve found that a lot of box dye actually intensifies the red which I’m trying to eliminate. Uh, I’ll pass. In addition, I’ve found that mixing my own color lasts an entire 3-4 weeks longer before it fades.

Does this apply to everyone? Probably  not. Everyone’s hair is different. But I’d like to share what works for me and encourage you all to take a break from box color!

Here’s what I used in the video:

  • Wella Color Charm in shade 2N (Very Dark Brown)
  • Wella Color Charm cream developer in 20 volume
  • Ardell Red/Gold color corrector (2 packets)
  • Sally’s mixing bowl & color applicator
  • Latex gloves

Directions:

  • Mix 1 part color to 2 parts developer
    • I used 2oz of color and 4oz of developer
  • Add in color corrector
  • Divide the hair into 2 sections
    • Thoroughly apply color to the hair, making sure to brush it through during the process. I like to start at the ends and work my way upwards.
  • Leave on for 30 minutes (25 if this is your first time coloring)
  • Rinse out
  • CONDITION!!!!
