So there's a picture of me. And here are the products I need to achieve my signature look:
I find it helpful to include washing my hair as part of my daily routine. And yes, I am aware that my shampoo and conditioner don't match. You see, my mother-in-law bought me the shampoo last March and the conditioner was something I had in my cabinet...actually, I'm quite convinced that those warnings: "For best results, use with matching conditioner" are really just because the company wants you to buy more of their product. I'm pretty sure that the magic formula for perfect hair comes from mismatched shampoo and conditioner.
After my hair air dries, I usually straighten my bangs with this, which is clearly the world's best straightener since I bought it 5 years ago for $20 and it still gets hot!
And I occasionally scrunch some product or another into my hair too. I'm not entirely sure why I do it, but they usually claim to increase volume or enhance curl, and those sound like good things, do they not?
I usually do put on makeup when I know I'm going to get my pictures taken. I'm very scientific about it. Besides the products pictured, blue or purple liquid eyeliner usually makes its way into my routine. I have a very good reason for not using eyeliner pencils--I don't want my eyes to get poked out. If you don't want your eyes to get poked out either, I highly recommend liquid eyeliner.
So there you have it! My absolute most favorite products in the whole world (*due to change as soon as each bottle empties because then I'll just buy the next pretty thing I see on sale).
*For the record, I'm pretty sure the reason I look quite good in some pictures has a lot more to do with my little brother's fancy camera and the fact that Picasa exists than with my Herbal Essences conditioner.
