Gorgeous Man Hair

Man Hair….Why is that some men get all the luck and get those luscious locks that we women oh so lust after? I mean, we are the woman after all and don’t you think ‘we’ should get all those beautiful locks of hair instead of the men? I for one think so. We spend so much money on getting our hair so perfectly soft, supple, thick and shiny when a man such as say… Jared Leto gets it naturally?

What about all the rockers from the early 80′s heavy metal bands? Their head banging locks just flowing every so lightly in the air just makes me lust after it even more. I can just kick myself for cutting my hair when I was younger. I had such long, pretty and a lot of hair… until I got a stick up my butt and decided to cut it off.

It’s been downhill ever since… All of the bleaching, coloring, heat and styling done to it has just really done a number on it, but I have hope that one day, yes, one day… I will get the hair of men such as Jared, Sebastian and Brad (pre Angelina)… There is hope to attain that beautiful man hair.

The Best Blue Nail Polishes For Summer

Seriously, summer is really the 2nd best time of the year next to Christmas. Well, correction, 3rd best after Easter! The open toed shoes and manicures galore, we have it all don’t we as women? But when it comes to choosing the best nail color it can be a difficult choice. I don’t know about you, but I am the most indecisive person, not just when it comes to nail colors, but anything in general. Enough about indecisions, lets get back to nails. When you think of summer what is the first thing that comes to mind? I don’t know about you, but the first thing I think about is the beach, deep blue sea water and sand. What goes with summer, sand and deep blue sea water? Magnificent manicured nails with the color of mediterranean waters. So, I shopped for us and found the perfect shades of blue for your next manicure or pedicure. Look below:

Today’s Beauty’s Must Try Products

Every now and then, I go through spurts when purchasing beauty products from skin care to make-up and this past week, I’ve purchase some great items, that you must try.

IMG_5018

1. I am so in love with Marc Jacobs beauty line. I was in need for a new face powder and after trying Marc Jacob’s        set last year, I thought it would be a great idea to try his face powder. I am officially a fan of his beauty products. I will definitely be trying each of his other products.

2. Benefit’s ‘Yes They’re Real’ Push Up Liner. First off, let me tell you that I have the hardest time applying eyeliner to my top lid. This liner is an innovative idea, especially for us who have trouble putting on their own liner. The tip is slanted to get closer to the lash line and so much easier to get an even line for that wing tip. I am happy with this product.

3.  Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Shocking, this is an awesome mascara and it does give you the long lashes you are longing for without the false look. But unfortunately, I’m not sure if my eyes are sensitive to it or what, but eye was irritated after using it.

3. Bliss’s Fat Girl Slim, this is my angel in disguise. I’m not going to lie, I have some areas on my body that need a little help, especially my thighs. This is a cream that is used on any part of your body where you’ve noticed a little bit of “flab” that needs to be knocked out and this cream is supposed to do so. I started using it a few weeks ago and  noticed a small difference in my thighs in both the front and back. Ive been using it twice a day and so far it seems to have been a good purchase.

Well, there you have it, some beauty purchases for the week that I am pretty pleased with!

All products can be purchased at Sephora.com or at your local Sephora Store

So, I’ve been eyeing the Mason Pearson brushes for quite some time and have finally decided to take the plunge and purchase one. Mason Pearson  is the enviable founder of the hand made rubber-cushion hairbrush. It was originally created in London in 1885 and  Mason Pearson invented an automatic brush-boring machine to speedup the process of brush making. That same year he created the famous “pneumatic” rubber-cushion hairbrush. The technique was further improved but much was still done by hand.

After his death, his widow continued the business and was handed down to the next generation. Now, the focus is on the original idea of the rubber-cushion hairbrush. Still made similar to the original 1885 model and with improvements of the fully developed models of the 1920′s. With the product staying the same and model names of the brushes still being Large Extra, Small Extra, Popular and Junior.

Although a little more costly than your average brush, Mason Pearson brushes stand out for several reasons and it’s rare that another brush is in the same class. The rubber-cushion pad is made by hand and allows for effective and efficient brushing, but most of all it massages the scalp. The “Child” brush is designed to get a child used to hair brushing, since the scalp of a child is more sensitive than an adult.

Although the material in this particular brush is designed for people who have thinning or very fine hair. It’s the ultimate brush for this issue because it stimulates the scalp. It’s also good for men who are thinning on top.

Each pads are selected for the type of hair to be brushed, but generally follow as:

Pure Bristle brushes: For fine to normal hair, fine long hair.

The Models: Large Extra, Small Extra, Handy Bristle and Pocket Bristle.

The Sensitive models are for very fine or thinning hair.
The Child’s model for children aged between 3 and 6 years

Bristle & Nylon Mixture brushes: For normal and short thick hair.
The models: Popular, Junior, Handy Bristle & Nylon and Pocket Bristle & Nylon.

All Nylon brushes: For very thick hair
The models: Universal, Handy Nylon (Detangler) and Pocket Bristle and Nylon

Long Hair:
Usually, the longer the hair the bigger the brush required. But, if you’re more comfortable with a smaller brush, you can always switch to use a smaller mixture model instead of a larger pure bristle one.

All in all, if you’re looking for a brush that lasts and is made with the best service, then a Mason Pearson brush is the brush for you. The product can be found at:

Amazing Beauty Tip For Eyebrows

IMG_4749 I don’t know about everyone else, but in addition to my eyebrow pencil or powder, I use a wax to help keep them in place. The wax stick helps keep them flat and more defined once the eyebrows are done. But, unfortunately the stick I was using was coming to an end and broke at the tip.

So what was I doing? Using the broken piece that was left on the tip of the stick. The other day, as I was trying to salvage what little piece I had left. Trying not to let it fall out, the ultimate blunder occurred. It fell down the drain…… I was literally upset because I needed it on my brows. It was like I was having withdrawals, which is really stupid because their just brows. So, who came to my rescue? My husband.

He heard me upset and I told him, what had happened. He says nonchalantly “use hair wax” Thats when I had my ‘a ha’ moment. I don’t know why I didn’t think of that sooner. I have two different waxes by two different hair brands. So, I tried it and voila! It worked perfectly. I just used a q-tip to apply it with and it was even better than a wax stick. It’s better than spending $16 on a wax stick because theres more and will last me a lot longer.

3. Aveda Light Elements Wax

So if you’ve been using a wax stick for your brows, consider using hair wax. It has a dual purpose. Any brand will do, but it has to be “wax”, not a paste. But who knows, you could probably use that too. I hope you found this tip useful!
