If you’re like me, you love a good before and after . Whether it’s weight loss, a makeover, decorating…I want to see it!
This morning, I thought I’d do my own before and after post. This required some planning and a little extra time. The things I do for a blog post.
Anyway, I have a little event coming up so I thought I’d try a new makeup and hairstyle before to see if I liked it. This morning I woke up looking like this:
Gorgeous, as usual.
Just so you know what I started out with, I washed and flat-ironed my hair on Sunday night. Last night, I took a shower before I went to bed, but I didn’t wash my hair (that’s where the frizz around my face came from). Basically, I was starting with dirty hair. Not greasy, just not fresh.
I recently bought some hot rollers ($10 at Ulta with a $5 off coupon!) and I wanted to try them out. I put them in when I first got them, but left them in for way too long and my hair was ginormous. This time, I planned to leave them in just long enough for me to do my makeup.
I did kind of a smoky eye look.
It looks a little brown in these pictures, but it was more of a very dark gray. I used a black liner, filled in my brows, added a touch of bronzer and blush. Oh and a little powder concealer under my eyes. I rarely, if ever, use foundation. The whole face didn’t take more than about 8 minutes.
Then I changed my shirt and added my lips for a true before and after reveal!
If I had more time this morning, I’d leave the rollers in for a bit longer, smooth out the top and maybe go a bit darker with eyes…depending on the event. Otherwise, I like it.
Bing, however, was not impressed.
And you’re right, Bing’s carpet does not match his curtains…embarrassing!
