#JuneBBC day 3 : Favourite Hair Products

Hey guys so todays Beauty Blogger Challenge is Favourite Hair Products and my first favourite product has to be Tesco Maximum hairspray, i've never had a hairspray hold my hair so well and it also brushes out easily. The packaging is a bit of a turnoff but the quality of the hairspray out rides it so I can't complain. The Loreal Elvie extraordinary oil, who hasn't heard of this wonder product, regarding a soft luxurious shine it definitely does what it says on the tin. I was a bit skeptical at first of the hype around this oil but it was surprisingly better than expected. Schwarzopf got2b big volume mousse is what I turn to when I want that extra volume added to my roots, I am blessed with thick hair but this mousse gives a boost to my roots. My next favourite has to be Herbal Essence light reflecting serum is a joy to use, it leaves my hair with a smooth sleek finish which I adore. The last product has to be the John Frieda frizz ease protective styling spray it nourishes and protects my hair as I use quite a lot of heat on it so this spray is perfect. I spray a small amount on damp hair from root to tip. 

What do you think of my favourites ? What your favourite hair products ?

#JuneBBC Day 2 : Favourite Brushes

So todays Beauty Blog Challenge is favourite brushes, it took me awhile to narrow my favourites down to these six beauties. First off is Real Techniques blush brush by samantha chapman, everyone is familiar with Pixiwoo and is a favourite amongst every beauty blogger. What caught my eye and made this brush stand out was the sleek design to the tapered tip to the soft bristles, I love everything about this brush. I use this brush for blush but mostly bronzer as it gives a beautiful blended flawless finish. Lately I have been using the Royal & Langnickel silk pro powder brush for setting my foundation as it is a large brush, it is perfect for the simple fact that I use less powder on my dry skin. For that airbrushed finish I look upon my trusty Bdellium tool in 955, how could you not fall in love with this beautiful bright green stippling brush. Another Royal & Langnickel silk pro brush in c450,  it is a  flat eyeliner which I use to define my eyebrows with. This Angle shader brush by Royal & Langnickel in c500 is perfect for highlighting your browbone. Last but not least my one and only Crease blending brush C430 by Royal & Langnickel, would you believe when I first started my makeup artistry course I hated the guts of this brush, I could not for the life of me control it and was left looking like a clown (not a pretty look). I have learnt to adore it, the bristles are soft as velvet and it has the ability to blend and create soft edges to achieve a flawless eye makeup look.
