Hair and Make-Up Tricks

One of my favorite things about the Breathing Space Retreat was the awesome classes!  No, they weren't about blogging.  They were about other things, like style, cupcakes, cooking, hair, make-up, photography, quilting, knitting and more.  One that I went to was the make-up one because let's face it, I need help in the department. 

 Deidra was the teacher and it was awesome because she talked about a lot more than just make-up.  She talked about hair too!!

Here are a few things that I learned at the class:
-When you put on mascara, make sure you start at the base of the eyelash and work your way up.


-If your hair goes flat like mine, flip your head over and hair spray the roots.

She even taught a quick and easy hair do using a head band:
Put it on your head

Then tuck/twist your hair under it

Here it is all done

I put the head band on my head instead of my forehead.  Super easy and cute!

A few other things that I learned that I wanted to share:
- For chapped lips: use sugar scrub, lip balm and then your color
- For extra moisture for your hair, add 2 tbs of olive to your conditioner
- For extra shine in hair, combine 1 avocado, 1 banana, 1 egg, 2-3 tbs olive oil and mix in blender.  Put on hair for 10 minutes and then shampoo and conditioner.
- For beach waves, braid hair and then using a flat iron heat the braid all the way down.
