Update & Nude Lips


I love nude lips but find that it washes me out sometimes.. I nearly always wear smokey eyes with it but this time I didn't, I think it looks ok.. I like that it looks "natural". I'm wearing creme d'nude by MAC btw over some Benefit Lipgloss, yes over :) I have the lip liner in Oak by MAC on which may be a tad too dark. hmm. I think I'm going to try and wear less make up for work.. I'm really trying to look after my skin, the next mission is my hair, I have horrible dry ends and refuse to get a hair cut :( I really want my hair to be waist length.. my aim is to get a hair cut for new years eve.. hopefully within 10 months I will reach my goal. I will try to use less heat and really nourish my hair. I have found that my hair colour keeps getting lighter.. I had highlights at the front but got rid of them, I may put some in for the summer. I do the highlights myself, I also do full head foil highlights for my mum, even though I'm not a qualified hairdresser but hey, I think I do a much better job :)

I love the nude lips and your hair looks great! I recommend Umberto Giannini's Overnight beauty balm, whenever I use it I find my hair is much less dry and split ends are actually improved.

Your skin is flawless! Could you please tell me what you have used under your eyes? I am looking for a product that can add that light underneath my eyes... something that doesn't crease and has a good staying power. Thanks so much!

This nude u did is very beautifull and i think its suits you 100%.Hair now,i always had my hair long enough but those split ends..once you got them they stay for good and no product can fix the problem.I cut my hair before Christmas and even that i regret it every day,now i know that i can take much more good care,so cut just a little twice a year(just 1/2 an inch :))

I will give Boing a go! Thanks so much!

As about the hair, I had the same goal... to grow it down to my waist. It's almost there and I think it's the longest I've ever had it. I haven't gone to get a haircut in a year now. This was a REALLY hard thing to do because when your hair starts to grow it will get a bit damaged but I said to myself I wasn't going to cut it this time. After I get a haircut my hair is healthy but by the time it grows to what it was before I got the cut, it's damaged again. So I decided to stop dying my hair, to avoid the hair straighter and never blow dry it. I also trimmed the split ends myself but I cut off the tiniest amount. Occasionally, I've made some home masks from egg yolks(whites dry out your hair) and a tiny bit of vinegar. Now my hair's pretty long and i think it deserves a nice cut. =)

@ sugarimmed, I totally agree with you, by the time i get a trim and it grows back i need another haircut, its so hard, I mean how am I going to last for another 9.5 months :)???
