I love shifting to dark colors in the fall and wintertime not only with my wardrobe but also with cosmetics. Some of my favorite noir beauty products.

I’m really a no frills kind of a girl when it comes to my hair. I am naturally blessed with straight hair. It is really easy to manage and for that, I’m thankful. My normal routine isn’t really a routine even. I get out of the shower and just let my hair naturally air dry. Ahh, the joys of Asian hair — no curling, no bends, etc. Every so often, I do like to add extra volume and do something a little more polished. I’ll blow dry my hair with a round brush and voila — instant volume and bounce. With the Houston humidity, I recommend Loreal’s Elnett Satin Hairspray. For a long time, this product could only be purchased in Europe. Now, it can be found in the U.S. at stores like Target and Ulta. It is the best hairspray ever. It holds but keeps the hair soft to the touch. You can even comb through to restyle and reshape! Try it and I promise you will love the natural results.

It’s that time of year again. Summer in Texas. Pool parties, bbq’s, cold beer, and sun (lots of it). I wear SPF each and every day. I’ve done so since middle school. So yes, I’m slightly neurotic about it. In the wintertime, I stick with a SPF 25. Come summer, I like to boost it up a bit for additional protection. Protecting your skin by wearing an SPF will keep your skin healthier, wrinkle-free, less prone to skin cancer. Here are the three sunscreens always in my rotation:
1) Shady Wipes SPF 30: Great for outdoors, non-sticky, pleasant smell, and convenient packaging. I always carry some whenever I’m outdoors biking, golfing or before jumping in the pool.
2) Clarins UV Plus Day Screen High Protection SPF 40: A great daily protector for skin. It is light-weight and completely absorbs in a few seconds after application. It can be worn over moisturizer. I love that it also protects the skin against pollution and other free radicals.
3) bareMinerals SPF 30: A mineral-based natural sunscreen. It comes in a very convenient and clean packaging — totally portable and fits conveniently in your handbag. Just buff and go. This is my go-to sunscreen when I have mineral make-up applied on my face. You can barely feel it on and it contains a aloe vera and other vitamins to treat your face. Best thing, you can reapply throughout the day over your make-up.
