Morning essentials .

Good morning !!
Today is going to be super productive .
As of right now I have made my bed , cleaned my room and now I’m doing laundry
in a while I’m going to run a few errands and get some incense for my room since I cant seem to find any sage.
But First ! a look of my every day essentials.!
and when I say every day I mean every single day.
These products are what get me and my skin through the day , if you have tried any of these products please leave a comment 🙂 I would love to know what you think.
Cleansers: I love the Dermalogica  cleanser because it makes my face feel so clean . Also I have to be careful what I put on my skin because I am prone to breakouts.
trust me,
we know our skin and we know what it does and does not like.
lets do this.
Toner: the Botonics toner ($6.99 @ulta )seriously smells like candy! I love it plus it’s super gentle on the skin, it’s good for all skin types. if you want your skin to look and feel energized and revitalized this toner is something you should try! Also the rosewater & Aloe and rosewater spray from Pearlessence ($9-12 TJ Max) I love these sprays because not only do they smell so freaking good but they feel good and they’re gentle . which is a crucial significance to me .
Moisturizer & Facial serum: I Live for the benefit cosmetics facial emulsion moisturizer ($32 @ ulta) and the instant comeback facial serum ($46 @ ulta)
the moisturizer has an spf 15 and hydrates your skin , it’s oil free and its light weight. with a Tri-Radiance Complex that helps maintain water on the skins surface.
the facial serum helps the skin look plumper and hydrated as well as firm and smooth.
as well it has the Tri-Radiance Complex .
Eye Cream: the Benefit Cosmetics it’s potent eye cream is crucial to my skincare routine
because not only does it brighten it also helps with dark circles ,fine lines it also has a complex that restores elasticity and firmness .

Key to a good blowout at home , from yours truly . 

Hey friends!

Okay so I get this question asked a lot , “how do I get a good blowout at home ?”

Well first things first , what kind of shampoo do you use ? For me I have been using Paul Mitchell’s tea tree line and Kenra . Both are professional products that you can get at a pro salon or by your personal stylist . The products that you use on your our hair are basically guides to help, I know that sounds a bit weird like , how can a product be a guide right ?

well the end result all depends on the products you use ,
for example.
you want a smooth and shiny outcome like the picture above ?
try this.
after shampooing ,only apply conditioner to the ends of your hair,
why?
because when you apply conditioner to your scalp it does help condition but it has a downside to , it makes your hair oily, and you will end up having a oily mess the next day.
when shampooing and conditioning its only suppose to be like twice a week ( mostly for color treated hair) and washed with cool water, because when you have color treated hair it tends to fade faster, washing it every day and using hot water.

a good products i like to use when giving myself a blowout , is rusk shining and paul Mitchell’s Awapuhi  hydrocream moose and the extra body root booster. These products make the hair shine and also smooth out the hair while adding volume . but you cant just get that perfect look without a good roundbrush. A roundbrush helps you control your hair so it isnt blowing everywhere.
tip 1:
Always start at the nape .
To add volume , go into the opposite direction the hair is growing ,by using the roundbrush
to control the hair direction, starting at the base ,then to mid shaft to ends,
base is the hair closest to the scalp, mid shaft is the middle of the hair, and well the ends are the ends .
bring the section up and slightly turn ,do not put heat directly on the scalp, it will burn you , angle your blow dryer at the section from the base towards the brush not the scalp and keep going until section is dry, working your way up from section to section, taking smaller sections will help a lot more cause you will have complete control.
there is A lot more to this i can tell you but , that would be pages and pages of detail.
so i’m going to let you try this technique and if you have any questions or concerns feel free
to comment. OR DM  on my instagram  @stylistrakris
hope this helped a little 🙂
