Glamorous Holiday Hair...

Hey loves,

In this post I will be sharing how to achieve gorgeous curls/waves for the holidays.  I did this look on a U-part wig that I made and honestly I am  starting to love this idea over clip-in extensions as it requires less effort and time to install.




Step 1- Spray hair with heat protectant and allow to dry to minimize heat damage

Step 2- Brush your hair using a paddle brush to ensure that your hair is tangle-free and smooth.

Step 3- Wrap medium size portions  of hair around the curling wand in a backward motion to create waves away from your face, after you have curled your  hair in its entirety finger comb to achieve your desired degree of waviness,personally I don't use any product on my extensions but if you desire you can add your favourite finishing hair spray.

I hope this post was helpful and I trust everyone is enjoying the festive season

TARTAN TALES....


Images sourced from google



 Tartan fashion is currently one of the  top trends for this season, I  personally prefer accents of tartan in the form of accessories, however the talented Emma Watson manages to immaculately style this Alexander McQueen tartan dress in a manner which I love.

 Do you love or loathe the tartan trend?

Foxy's Favourite Foundation Brush....

ELF products are by far some of the most affordable and effective products,  my absolute favourite product from this cosmetics  line happens to be the Elf Powder brush....




The Elf Powder Brush  is a sturdy, densely packed brush with  extremely soft bristles. I primarily use this brush to apply my foundation and it does so seamlessly, it buffs the foundation perfectly into my skin to the point where it gives me  a slightly airbrushed look.Another great aspect of this brush is that there is minimal shedding however, on the flip side the  disadvantage is that due to dense nature of the brush it takes some effort and time to clean , nevertheless this tool is a staple in my makeup routine.

Do you have a favourite foundation brush?
