Just like different hair types, there are different tools needed for each type. When doing a blowout, the brush is the most important tool.

Not sure if you'd look good with bangs, but want to try it out before you make the big leap? Faux bangs are perfect!

Finally, create a zig zag part to hide the clips and you've got the best looking bangs!
With this simple trick you won't need to use a curling iron or straightener to get a wavy look.

Hold in place with a rubber band, making sure to tuck in the ends. Let your waves loose when the knots are completely dry.

Long gone are the days of dark lip liner. Seriously, don't use that stuff. Instead, opt for a lip liner that is a color lighter than your lips. It will give the appearance of a voluminous lip.
