How I Style My Lazy Days Hair & Makeup: Photo of the Day





Hi Everyone,

This week turned out to be a particularly busy week for me and I felt like I never had a chance to just sit and rest. In these pictures I am going on day 6 of my crazy schedule and my fatigue is reflected in these photos. When I have days like this my hair gets put on the back burner, especially when its grey and raining for four days in a row. What's the point of getting my hair primped and perfect when its going to frizz or drop or do both in less than an hour from when I step outside? This is my famous hairdo that I wear often when I'm not sure what do to with my hair. This style is easy and looks like I spend some time and effort on my appearance. I achieved this look by doing a touch of backcombing to the crown of my head and then pulled the sides loosely back and secured with a tiny clip and pushed the clip in an upward motion to secured it in a 'puffed' position. Most of the time I don't even add hairspray because it can weigh my hair down even more. This is a sweet hairdo for a Sunday brunch or a hot date on a Saturday night. Its very versatile and all you need is a rat tail comb and a small clip or bobby pins.

The same goes for the makeup I'm wearing. When I don't feel like putting effort into my face I apply thick, winged black liquid liner to the upper lash line and then I add generous coats of L'Oreal Telescopic mascara. Then I apply neutral eye shadow in the crease such as MAC's Malt or Kid, pinky/white eyeliner in my bottom water line so that I appear more awake, a touch of contouring on my cheeks and a neutral or nude lip color, such as MAC's High Tea or Delish lipstick or Revlon's Nude with a tiny bit of lip liner and some clear gloss or MAC's Love Nectar gloss.

There you have it, Nadia's version of lazy day makeup and hair. I still can't believe that I get loads of compliments on this style because people are under the false impression this style of hair and makeup take a long time to do when in fact it doesn't. Is spend a total of 15 minutes on my hair and my face. I usually need on average 45 minutes to style my hair and put on makeup. I'm including the multiple interruptions from a 2 & 4 year old.

Thanks for stopping by.xx

I wish I could look as chic and together as that on my lazy days!! Your hair is fab and I'm going to try it out on mine. Your make up is fab too. I'm not a fan of winged eyeliner but this picture is making me think again. I might give that a try too! You are beautiful!

Why can't I look like that when I'm having a lazy day?!?! I usually have dark circles under my eyes, frizzy hair and mascara smudged all over the place, LOL! And how in the world do you spend that amount of time doing your makeup!? For me it's like this huge ordeal that takes 30-40 mins...Jonathan HATES it!! I need to be more like you Nadia! Thank you so much for sharing! xoxo

@Anna, hahaha, your funny. Its called practice, practice. I've been doing this long enough that i've picked up speed and I better or else my kids will start running around and jumping everywhere. I still take my time just in spurts rather than all at once. Thank you for your continued support and encouragement. xxNadia

LoveLipstickandLime said...

Savvy Mode SG said...

love your hair. i will have to try it.

MizzJ said...

Great hair! I'd love to be able to get that with mine and I bought the tools... now I just need to perfect the technique so that it doesn't take me like 1/2 hour to do it :( Sigh, I am hair retarded. I like your FOTD, it's very clean and natural! It's also my go-to look as well haha

LoveLipstickandLime said...

@MizzJ, Thank you, the look is fast and simple for me it honestly doesn't take very long. You honestly need one or two small hair clips and a rat tail comb for teasing your crown. Good luck and let me know how it turns out. xxNadia
