Get Your face on!

Beth over at The Stories of A to Z is having an awesome Get Your Face On linking party!  

So I thought that I would be brave and bare all!  So here we go!  

Let start with hair,  here are some of the products that I use!

I love these product!  The first is joice K-pak shampoo and condition. This prodect is made for people lke me!  I am a hair stylist and always flat ironing and coloring my hair!  I LOVE the Sleek look styling cream.  They have one for thick hair and then one for normal.  I have super curly hair and this stuff works great! Then I use a thermal spray that is from Ion!  I love it and it works really well.  But don't use alot or it will make your hair greasy.   This helps protect my hair when I flat iron.

This a very clam version of what my hair looks like when I blow dry.

Then I use a Chi Falt iron!  I know they are expensive.  I have been doing hair now for 6 years!  I have only gone through 1.  My dog chewed through the cord.  I don't want to talk about it and no, we no longer have a dog.  (For more reasons then that.)  Another thing about Chi's DON'T get all the pretty colors or the camo whatever.  Go for the black one!  It is made out of different material and works so much better then the other ones. Also there is some that don't have the GSB trip thing.  Make sure the one that you get has it!  If you are like me and don't have tons of space and are working around water, it is super important so that no one gets hurt.  Also they get really hot so make sure they are out of reach of your kids!


This is my make up.  I don't have tons and I don't have a drawer to put it in. So this is my case.  Yes, I have a bigger one that is filled with stuff that I could use.  But I don't!  In fact I don't always do my make up.  But I feel like I look ten times better with it.  I start out with Apricot Scrub and Clean and Clear Sensitive skin face wash. Then the Walmart brand facile lotion that is like the Oil of Olay.  The I use Mirabella Concealer and press powder.  I have really sensitive skin so this is what works for me! I like brown and tan eye shadow, whit a little sparck and nothing fancy. Then I use Mary Kay Black or Brown Eyeliner.  My favorite mascara is Full and Soft, I NEVER use waterproof.  It makes my eyelids itch.  I sometime use an eyelash curler, if  have time. Then I us a little blush and bronze when I am in the mood.  I hate lipstick so I just use gloss.  That is it! 
 Here is the finished product:
(Sorry the picture is bad.  I was going to have my hubbie help. But he is at work)
Thanks for stopping by!  If you have ANY hair or make up questions feel free to ask!  
I would love to try and help!

I am so glad you linked up AND that you included some hair tips! I'm a hair novice and never know what to do with products. (You had me laughing out loud about your dog :). Ugh, dogs.)

Thanks so much for sharing your tips with us. You are positively glowing in your pics and look adorable!

I love your after photo. My hairdresser(family friend) just gave me the same flat iron. My hair is pretty straight but My daughters is thick and wavy and we use it on her hair 2x a week. It is awesome, it works so well and heats up so quick.

Kelly Howard said...

You have such a gorgeous smile and sparkly eyes! Just lovely!

Hi Melissa! I'm afraid I have hair just the opposite... Baby fine, and not a wave to be found!.. I am only just finding out about this event, and WISH I knew SOONER!!! Still I'm having fun visiting post to post with all the participants! I commend you for your bravery, and you looked great before you even DID your hair and makeup! The ONE Mary Kay product I have is a "Signature" concealer, which I SWEAR by!!! I LOVE this stuff, and wouldn't touch a different product if you paid me! Nice to meet you, Melissa! You're a good sport, and you look gorgeous! ~tina

Thanks so much for sharing! I never have time to do anything but air-dry my hair (I linked up too- you should check it out to see the lameness that is my hair LOL) and it always poofs up into what I lovingly refer to as triangle hair. flat against my scalp then some sort of curl/wave thing going on with crap tons of texture in the shape of a triangle lol
anyway YOUR hair looks awesome as does your makeup!
Just wanted to stop by and check out everyones links! :)

Mandi @ Finding Home said...
