Why is it that the ‘undone’ look is always takes the longest? Here are a few simple steps to get your beach waves rocking!

You ideally want to style this look on dirty hair – if you have just washed it be sure to get some product in the hair like Bumble & Bumble Texture Creme give is a blast with the hair dryer, lifting at the roots with your hand or dry with your head upside down!

Once dry section your hair.  Using a curling iron or wand, curl roughly 2″ thick pieces of hair. You want to alternate your curls in different directions e.g one towards your face & one away (this keeps the texture looking full) & leave the ends of your hair out of the iron – spray with hairspray as you go.

You can make your beach hair as curly or straight as you like by choosing difference thickness of curling tool, the thicker the tool the looser your curls will be!

Once you have finished your curls leave the hair to cool for 5 minutes before running your fingers through to separate the hair. You’ll then want to spray over with a salt spray like Got2b Beach Matte Salt Spray and give a blast of cold air from your hairdryer.

Finally to finish the hair and give it extra texture. I like to get a penny size lump of the Got2B beach matt paste and run it through the lengths and ends of the hair, ‘scrunching’ the curls as you go…

and the result – beach hair like you just road the surf in bondi beach – Enjoy!

Peach and Bronze Make Up Look

Here is a round of of make up products I use to create this look!

Make Up By Sian - Peach & Bronze Smokey Eye

For my base I started with NARS Cosmetics sheer glow foundation, I applied this using the Definer Sponge from Barely Cosmetics. I love this technique of applying foundation! By tapping the product into the skin with the sponge the coverage builds up quickly yet takes away any excess product resulting in flawless, non ‘cakey’ skin! I then used the same sponge to apply Ben Nye ‘Fair translucent setting powder’ and allowed to bake whilst I come to my eye make up.

For my eyes I used Makeup Geek eyeshadows. ‘Peach smoothie’ swooped over the entire lid and crease area as my transition colour, I then used Cosmopolitan on the movable lid which gives a gorgeous Champagne coloured glow. To deepen the crease area I used the warm brown shade by the name of ‘Cocoabear’ & ‘Corrupt’ (which may I say is the blackest of all black eyeshadows I have ever used) went in the outer corner to make this look darker and more smokey! I also took ‘Cocoabear’ and ‘Corrupt’ under the eye with ‘Feline’ kohl pencil from MAC in the water line. To finish the eye look I took INGLOT black gel liner No.77 for the liner and MAC’s In Extreme Dimension mascara on the lashes.

As always, Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in medium brown was used to sculpt out and fill in my brows.

I then buffed over my faced with a Morphe Duo Fibre brush to get rid of the excess powder from ‘baking’ my foundation before picking up Makeup Geek’s ‘Infatuation‘ powder to contour, this isn’t really a typical contour colour but I wanted the overall finish to be quite bronzed so I also added ‘Romance‘ a sparkling peach shade as my blusher/highlight.

MAC Cosmetics lip liner ‘Boldly Bare’ went all over the lip with a touch of ‘Luxe Naturale’ mineralise lipstick in the centre to give some shine!

I hope you liked this look, please let me know what you think!
