Make Beauty. Escape(TM) Runner-Up Shares Her Favorite Picks!

Bookmark and Share Posted on 03/22/2013

Our Make Beauty. Escape™ runner-up Cydrienne is loving her resort beauty prize pack featuring the 26 products we never travel without. She's been playing with them all but a few favorites have caught her attention from Clarisonic, Butter London, Vapour Organic Beauty and Kai. If you didn't get the chance to enter to win our luxury trip to Hawaii stay tuned as a new destination will be revealed in the next few months!

Butter London Nail Polish: "I'm really big on nail polish and absolutely loved that the package came with SIX colors from Butter London's Sweetie Shop Collection. The color I have on is Kerfuffle. This light pink is perfect for the start of spring and its subtleness pairs well with my outfits for work or play." 

Clairsonic Surf Mia2: "I rarely use anything else besides soap and water to wash my face at night since I have sensitive skin so I was skeptical about using the Clairsonic. The first time I tried it, however, I found my skin feeling soft and extremely clean. The plus side is that my face didn't have any bad reactions to the Clairsonic cleanser. " 

Kai Body Lotion: "I was born and raised in Hawaii so the Kai lotion smells exactly like the plumeria flowers that grow abundantly in Hawaii. It triggered happy memories of having a plumeria tucked behind my ear during a day at the beach or dancing hula wearing a lei of plumerias. Not only does it smell great,  but it leaves my skin feeling hydrated and not oily like other lotions tend to do." 

Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi-Use Blush: "I am a fan of make-up that is compact and easy to use so I definitely love the Vapour Blush stick. The color compliments my skin and the compact stick is perfect for when I am on the go and don't have time (or patience) to do my make-up at home."

Get The Look - Tousled Waves - With Oscar Blandi » -

Recreate the effortless look of tousled waves in this step by step hair tutorial from Oscar Blandi! All you'll need are the 4 products below, a brush and curling iron! 

Step 1 (Cleanse) Spray Pronto Invisible Volumizing Dry Shampoo Spray throughout the roots and massage thoroughly. Ideal for all hair types but even more appealing to darker tones because it sprays on totally clear!

Step 2 (Thicken) Give hair a fuller appearance for bigger and better waves with the Hair Lift Thickening and Strengthening Mousse that makes your mane look more abundant!

-Shake well before application. While nozzle is pointed down, spray a medium sized amount into palm. Evenly distribute through the hair and blow dry for added fullness.

Step 3 (Curl)-Divide hair into 3 sections (top, middle and bottom). Curl 1" sections away from the face starting from the bottom.- Spray section by section with Pronto Dry Styling Heat Protect Spray prior to curling. Your mane's best defense against heat styling, it acts as a protectant and safeguard from all hot tools.

Step 4 (Tease) Shake to sprinkle Pronto Dry Teasing Dust directly onto roots. Massage into hair with fingertips. For added volume, backcomb. This amazing product contains tiny micro fibers that attach to the hair to build volume and gives great grip for an instant backcombed effect without stressing the hair!

Oscar's Insider Teasing Tips:

-Divide hair into small 1/2" sections-Holding sections up vertically, gently brush down from midsection to roots. Use a natural bristle brush instead of a tail comb.-Repeat on sections throughout the hair until you reach desired height.

Enjoy your beautiful waves! You look great!
