Fall Hair Routine // FLC x Bombay Hair

For today’s post I teamed up with Bombay Hair to share my hair routine for this upcoming fall! Now that summer is nearing an end, I’m slowly leaving my ‘beach waves’ in the past and looking forward to straight / sleek, long hair. Here is my step-by-step process of how I use the Bombay titanium iron! Enjoy xx Flo

1. pretty much a no-brainer, but make sure to use a heat protectant spray beforehand. I swear by the Moroccan oil heat styling protection spray. Brush it through with a paddle brush (like this one by Conair) and wait for it to dry.

2. The heat settings all depend on the texture of your hair, mine is a bit stubborn so I turn it up to around 300 degrees.

3. To make sure I don’t miss any sections, I put my hair in a half-up, half-down style with a scruchie.

4. Carefully, I straighten the bottom section in one-inch pieces (don’t hold down for over 10 seconds). Repeat on the top section.

5. When all the sections are done, spray with hair spray to keep the style all day.

Summer Makeup // Bare Minerals & Nyx

A few months back I had the pleasure of working with Simon malls to try out some of the products sold at their Wrentham Outlets location. Some of those products included these Bare Minerals blushes, foundation samples, and lip glosses. If you know me, you know I’m not one to splurge on lots of makeup (or really anything outside the realm of clothes), so I rarely know what’s going on in the beauty world.

I’m happy to say that the Bare Minerals products definitely surprised me- the foundation fits my skin tone perfectly, and the blush is pretty and subtle. As for lip gloss- I’ve never been a huge fan, but Kylie is bringing it back so why not?

Along with my Bare Minerals items, I’ve been going back to my NYX BB cream and concealer for daily touch ups. The last thing I want to do during a heat wave is wear layers of makeup, so a light BB cream is a good middle ground between foundation and a bare face.
