Tip: If you have sensitive teeth, use the whitening stripes every couple days or once a week (instead of once day like the package says) until you reach the desired whiteness.
Tip: To prevent the lipstick from bleeding, line your lips with a red lip pencil first.
Tip: Apply eyeshadow before your foundation. This way if any of the metallic eyeshadow flakes onto your skin during the application, you can clean it up when you apply your foundation.
Tip: If you get nail polish on your skin, wait for the polish to dry and then rinse it under warm water. You will easily be able to rub it off.
Happy Holidays my friends!

With my new found silky hair, it has been so much easier to recreate some of the latest Fall hair trends, like braids (I am beyond excited that I can finally french braid), buns, and waves. Check out the pictures below to see some hair trends and read tips on how the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil collection helped me to achieve these looks.
Tip: When you’ve finished your braid, pull apart the braid to make it look more full.
Whether completely slicked back or with a few messy strands left out, you want your bun to be frizz free which usually requires the use of hairspray. But guess what?! I didn’t even have to use hair spray on this bun! That’s a first. Ok, it’s actually a third because this is the third time I’ve done my hair like this since using the Dove Pure Care Oil collection.
Tip: I added a little bit of the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment to the finished bun to give it a more sleek look.
