Have Fun With Your Makeup (and Hair, and Nails) this Halloween!

Halloween is tomorrow — crazy!  This year is zooming by.  I’m not doing much for the holiday, probably just watch scary movies.  My kids are too old to hang with me, even my 13 year old wants to go out with her friends!

But, I’ll probably do something fun with my makeup an nails to mark the occasion.  Here are some great ideas for fun Halloween looks:

 

My Little Pony: The Movie Collection Eyeshadow Palette ($29 USD) — features a kaleidoscope of colors including mattes, shimmers and bold brights. From everyday neutrals to flirty shimmers – all the basics are covered. I will be doing a review with swatches of this soon!

Just swipe on and tap into the skin on-the-go. The shades are Blissful (Holographic Iridescent Blue with Pink Shift), Joyful (Iridescent White with Blue Lavender Shift) and Cheerful (Iridescent Pink with Gold Shift)

My Little Pony: The Movie Mane 6 Brush Set ($49.99 USD) — this six-piece set inspired by My Little Pony: The Movie. Each brush contains incredibly soft, fluffy synthetic fibers which means less fallout, less product absorption and more controlled application. The Mane 6 Brush Set includes a Powder Brush, Blush Brush, Concealer Brush, Eye Shadow Brush, Crease Brush and Eyeliner Brush. It’s everything you need to apply, conceal and blend your way to flawless, professional quality results.

Styling Products For Gorgeous Hair!

I don’t know about you, but I love to use styling products to bring the best out of my hairstyle and to keep my hair shiny and frizz-free!

There are amazing drugstore and higher end products that style hair beautifully. So many to try and to love! I was sent the below products for my honest review:

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Air Dry It Undone Style Cream ($4.99 USD) — L¿Oreal Paris introduces NEW Air Dry It from Advanced Hairstyle. Create and control your perfect hairstyle without the heat damage. Enhance your hair’s natural shape definition and texture. No residue left behind. This style cream adds softness, shine, and hold for an undone look without weighing hair down. Get beautiful, natural, effortless style.

L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Air Dry It Ruffled Body Mousse ($4.99 USD) —  This rich, lightweight foam builds body, enhances waves and curls and provides hold.

What I think:  This is the perfect collection for me, because I mostly air dry my hair. I have been loving the Undone Style Cream!  I like using it on damp hair and I run my fingers through it.  It dries wavy and so pretty, my daughter even commented on it!  I have not tried the mousse, but I am going to give it to my other daughter who uses mousse every day.  I will let you know what she thinks!

Purchase at http://www.lorealparisusa.com and retailers like Ulta

TIGI Bed Head After Party Smoothing Cream ($19.50 USD) — Smoothing cream for silky, shiny, healthy-looking hair! This lightweight cream combats fly-aways and works on any hair length or texture.
TIGI Bed Head Ego Boost Split End Mender ($18.99 USD) — This leave-In conditioner mends and protects dry, damaged hair from environmental elements, chemical treatments, shampoos and styling. Great for textured or damaged hair.
TIGI Bed Head Superstar Queen for a Day Thickening Spray ($19.99 USD) — Get volume, body and lift with style memory – but without the tacky feeling. Good for fine to medium hair texture, any length.
What I think:  I love the bright packing of Bed Head products!  Really fun! The After Party is so nice on dry hair to smooth it.  I like to use the Ego Boost on my ends when my hair is wet, but it also can be used to keep flyaways at bay.
I think my favorite of the three is the Thickening Spray. I have fairly fine hair and it makes it look fuller and gives lots of fun volume!  I love that it leaves my hair soft and not sticky!

John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Leave-In Conditioner ($5.99 USD) Fighting frizz starts right out of the shower! This leave-in conditioning spray that instantly adds shine and detangles hair. The formula contains a blend of vitamins A, E, C and green extract, and helps safeguard hair from heat styling and sun exposure- common culprits when it comes to frizzy hair.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength Six Effects Serum ($9.99 USD)– Instantly transform your frizz to ultra-sleek, purely polished, super-shiny hair with this cult-classic serum. It will not only block your frizz and repel against the humidity, but will also leave your hair extremely supple, easy to manage and healthy-looking. Another advantage, it has sunscreen in it!

John Frieda Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier Firm Hold Hairspray ($6.99 USD) — Create an instant barrier that helps seal out humidity and combat frizz with this hairspray. No matter what style you’re going for, this firm-holding product holds even the hardest-to-handle styles, all day long. It has a fast-drying, shine-boosting formula.

What I think: I do get lots of frizz in the summer, and they products are an affordable and effective way to fight it. I love leave-in conditioner that also acts as a detangler.  It leaves my hair so soft!  The hairspray is great too, because it helps to keep the frizzies away!  I do need more than one product to totally keep my hair soft and smooth, but this does help and holds my style.

I really love the serum, though.  My hair is fine, so I just use a little bit on wet hair.  When it dries, my hair is soft and shiny.  As my hair ages, it’s hard to get manageable, youthful hair, but this really helps. It smells nice, too.
