Hair and Beauty Saviours.
We all have those days and moments when we really need a product to save our souls. That may sound dramatic but when you have greasy hair and your skin looks like crap, yet you have woken up 10 minutes before you are supposed to leave for work? Yes you need help. I'm going to share with you products that save me on a daily and weekly basis. Excuse the random picture above but I saw pretty flowers, photographed them and wanted to display them somewhere....
My hair saviours are really basic. I'll just give some hair background before I begin; I have long hair that is naturally brown in colour but I have highlighted it for the past six years. So my natural hair is oily but because of the chemical damage the ends are a lot drier. Lets begin..
Batiste Dry Shampoo: Is my holy grail couldn't live without ever hair product. Batiste saves me several times a week. I try not to wash my hair more than 2-3 times a week because I don't want to dry it out. I'm also fond of my sleep so I wake up really last minute, and if my hair gets greasy overnight I don't always have time to shampoo it. Plus its like perfume for your hair. If your lazy, you need Batiste.
L'Oreal Mythic Oil: This saves my hair when its the opposite to above. This makes my hair feel sooo soft. I put a few pumps in my hair after I've washed it and combed it through. It really nourishes and softens my hair. I've tried so many things and this is the only thing that stops my hair from drying out and makes it feel unbelievably soft.
Tangle Teezer: Long hair = tangly hair. Its inevitable and brushing my hair used to lead to half of it coming out and serious breakage. I read rave reviews on this product but I though it was so expensive for a comb. I would buy this 100 times over now because it makes brushing my hair so much less painful, reduces the breakage and barely any hair comes out.
Bobby pins, bobbins and those hair grip things are always in my handbag. If I decide to wear my hair down and it annoys me I hate not having the option to tie it up. I wear my hair up majority of the time and bobby pins save me daily too, especially when a random piece of hair decided to evacuate my pony tail.
So as I said before I all too often wake up way to late to do a full face of makeup. I have combination/ oily skin and even if I'm running super late I do prefer to wear something on my face.
Garnier BB Cream: This makeup is zero effort. With a brush or your fingers you can throw it on in two minutes. It always gives such an even finish and is so easy to blend. It gives the perfect amount of coverge really quick and easy.
MAC Brow Gel: Lets face it unless you have gorgeous full brows you need a little help. Tinted brow gel gives your brows an instant lift and makes them appear more full in a minute. Perfect for preventing a bald brow day. Its also amazing for touch ups when your out and you seem to have lost half your eyebrow, its a saviour.
Sleek Blush In Rose Gold: This blush adds colour to your face but also a highlight. It just brightens up your face and adds more dimension in seconds.
Maybelline Matte Maker: If your like me and look in the mirror half way through day and an oily monster stares back, you'd hope to have mattifying powder in your handbag. I never go anywhere without my powder, and if I do it usually ends in a (shiny) disaster.
MAC Fix+: When your in a rush and you throw on your makeup, but youve caked that powder on? Fix+ will sort you out in a spray. Ideal for sorting that cakey look without having to take all your makup off. Its also great for refreshing your makeup in a hurry, the travel size is ideal for your makeup bag and can really help refresh your makeup when your out.
Tinted Rose Vaseline: Vaseline is and has always been my favourite lip balm. If you leave one in your handbag it will add instant colour to your lips when you either don't have time for lipstick, or it has worn off. This is a handbag staple for me that can really bring my look back to life throughout the day. Plus it stops that dry, chapped lip look that no one likes.
What are your hair and makeup products that help you out of possible disasters and save you time? I'm always on the hunt for products that will save me when I'm stuck as I love to have a quick fix to hand! Most of these makeup products aside from the bb cream end up in my makeup bag as they are ideal for touchups too <3
