I'm staring at my reflection in the mirror, trying to decide what to do with my hair for the day. I'll probably curl, tease it, and walk out the door like I do everyday. But today, I really want to change it up, do something different.
I've teamed up with Pink Pewter to curate a box of my can't-live-without beauty essentials. Inside this box, you'll find all the accessories you need to elevate your everyday curled or straight go-to hairstyle and top it off with my favorite lip color.
I started with the "Extreme Vented Flex" Small Contoured Styling Brush
because I can't style my hair without brushing it first. I have long hair so I need something that is lightweight, but goes through my tangles with ease. This brush is multi-functional with its flex design because you can also tease with it. I'm all about the two-in-one.
I first found Pink Pewter at a market while I was buying for a local boutique where I use to work. Their unique headbands drew me in five years ago and I've been hooked ever since. They are constantly creating new designs that work for everyday life or events. I included two of my favorites in this box.
The first is a casual "Rue" #34 - Grey Headwrap style. It's neutral with its grey tones and I could probably wear this daily. I use it to hold my hair back when I wash my face. I use it as a traditional wrap to place over my curls. I also wear this when I'm rocking a messy bun.
The second is the Cy'ra- Detachable Stretch Band
. I use this on the days when I want to glam up my look, but not be overdone. It's comfortable and can also be layered with the "Rue" #34 - Grey Headwrap
How many of you like to put your hair in a ponytail in the middle of the day, but don't want to ruin your sleek hair or bouncy curls with a giant crease? The Hair Twists - Clear (5pc)
are included in this box exactly for that reason. Your hair won't crease, but these stay in place. I keep them in my work bag, my purse, and my car.
This essentials box wouldn't be complete without my favorite cosmetic product. Lip colors are my staple and I've tried almost every brand out there. Pink Pewter has created something truly wonderful with this Matte Velvet Lip Lacquer - "Toasty"
that stays and doesn't leave your lips feeling crusty at the end of the day. Toasty is a color that compliments almost every skin tone and hair color.
