Summer hair care - christine cameron

Last March, I started my transition to becoming a blonde, and ever since I’ve been picking up tips on how to take care of my lighter locks. The last time I was this blonde, I was in college and I definitely didn’t take very good care of my hair, but now that I have the resources as well as great experts at my fingertips, I’ve made a pact with myself to actually do it right this time around. So with that said, I wanted to share a few summer hair care tips that I picked up from Elaine, the Senior Creative Director at the Sassoon Salon in New York!

Whenever I go into a salon to get my hair done, the stylist always comments on the fact that I have fine hair but a ton of it, which can be great because with the right product they can create a ton of volume and I can keep my hair styled without it falling flat in five minutes. But like I said, it all depends what product I use. The problem usually begins with my shampoo and conditioner, since anything too heavy immediately takes the “umph” out of my hair…

I don’t know about you guys, but I love a heady, musky fragrance all day, every day. I find that I am often drawn to men’s cologne because of their woodsy, heavier scents and usually stay away from anything too sweet or floral. And instead of just wearing this type of perfume in winter, when spicier, pungent fragrances are more “acceptable or appropriate” I love wearing this kind of perfume all year round. This is definitely a personal preference but after chatting about it with different friends and colleagues, I now know I am not alone in this.

As spring turns to summer, and the weather becomes thick and balmy, I find that heavier fragrances match the elements and it becomes my favorite time to spritz a light dusting of a musky scent on my neck, inner elbow, back of knees, and a bit in my hair for good measure. Throughout the day I love how the spicy smell rises with the heat and creates a very heady, aromatic, bold statement that builds throughout the day.

And with that said, here are my top seven sexy scents for spring and summer…

Fragrances listed clockwise:

Oud by Ralph Lauren:

Smoky guaiac wood, spicy incense, and earthy cedar to evoke the spirit of the African savannah.

Santal 33 by Le Labo:

Woody, rich scent opens with violet accord and cardamom.

Edition 02 – Shiso by Goop:

Shiso leaf (also known as perilla) is the unexpected star of this scent, which is slightly spicy/fresh characteristic that’s green, earthy, and delicate all at once. It slowly opens up into spicy greens, crushed stems, and ancient exotic woods.

Windsor by D.R. Harris & Co. Ltd:

Plenty of herbal overtones with some citrus smell. It’s quite complex, changing as the cologne dries and gradually gets a bit of patchouli, vetiver and black pepper to it.

Stash by SJP:

An aromatic woody fragrance that captures light and dark while merging notes of cedarwood atlas, vetiver, and pistachio.

Black Orchid by Tom Ford:

Black truffle, bergamot, black orchid, black plum, noir gourmand accord, patchouli.

Moab by Phlur:

Long pepper, clove, vanilla, jasmine and tonka bean.

What are your favorite sexy scents? 

Hi guys! Today’s post is a video I created in partnership with Got2b Volumaniac on how to get voluminous curls. It took me about 20 minutes and all you need are these three products and a curling iron!

Read more below to learn how to get the look! 

Step 1: Start with wet hair and spritz Got2b Volumaniac Root Lifting Spray on your roots and work into hair.

Step 2: Next pump a small amount of Got2b Volumaniac Bodifying Mousse into your hands, rub between your palms and work into your hair starting at your roots making your way down to the tips.

Step 3: Rough blow dry your hair, which will create texture and volume.

Step 4: Then section off your hair and begin curling it with your favorite curling iron. I like my Conair wand from Target, but use whatever tool works best for you. Finger comb the curls to create some separation.

Step 5: Flip your head over and begin spraying your whole head with Got2b Volumaniac Bodify Hairspray.

Et voila! Your’e all done! You should now have the most voluminous curls ever! If you guys have any questions about this tutorial please leave me a comment below!

My hair before using Drybar’s Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam. Slightly flat with a hint of oil, some noticeable separation and in desperate need of a pick me up!

I love wearing my hair both straight and curly, so I wanted to show you guys that you can easily use this product on either kind of style without messing it up. Because I have fine hair, but a lot of it, I try not to wash my hair everyday because otherwise it can start to look limp and flat if it’s too “clean.” With that said dry shampoo has become my best friend – I rely on it to give my hair texture and keep it looking fresh. I promise, if you were to take a look into my bathroom cabinet, you would find a million bottles of different dry shampoos because I always love trying out different kinds to see which is my favorite. Case in point, I was very excited to partner with Drybar and try out their new Drybar Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam since I am already a fan of their shops and other products! I love that Detox Whipped adds lift and body to my hair no matter if I’ve styled it curly or straight.

Here we go!

You just need a small amount – a little goes a long way! First shake it well. Then dispense a small amount into your palm and rub your hands together. Use your fingers to apply to the roots and massage gently until the foam disappears completely. 

It’s nuts because it feels like you are putting mousse into your hair and are sure it’s going to mess up whatever hair style you have at the moment, but it doesn’t! In fact, it does the opposite and instead, the foam absorbs excess oils, leaving your hair feeling fresh and clean with no stickiness or crunchiness. As much as I have loved my traditional dry shampoo, I will say, I’m a Detox Whipped convert! I’m obsessed with how there is no powdery residue or inhalation of product when spraying it into my hair. Plus the Detox Whipped dry shampoo foam has a lovely fragrance, so your hair will smell great, just like it was freshly washed even if it’s been a few days. It can be your little secret!

Et voila! The finished look having used the product on both curly and straight hair! I can see such a visible difference in the volume and lift with the curls, and the clean and sleek look with the straight hair. What do you guys think? Are you dry shampoo fans? Would you try Detox Whipped dry shampoo foam? After testing it out and then using it almost everyday for about a week and a half, I can say that I highly recommend it! xo

Hello loves! So it reached over 100 degrees here in New York yesterday and because of that it pretty much feels impossible to wear anything other than a tank top and jeans and super minimal makeup. Because of the intense heat, I came up with a really quick summer makeup routine that makes me feel pulled together but still allows my skin to breathe aka sweat haha. I explained my process below, but if you have any questions at all, please leave them in the comments below and I will get back to you asap! Click here to see more of my YouTube videos!

Products Used In Order:

1. Neutrogena Face Wipes

I LOVE these wipes and always use them when I want to freshen up my face quickly.

2. Eau Thermale Avene / Thermal Spring Water

Lately I have really been into spritzing my face with thermal water to hydrate and cool off my skin after cleansing. It feels so refreshing!

3. This Works Light Time Skin Plump

I just started using this product and love it. It plumps and hydrates, and works well with my sensitive skin.

4. Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer

I heard about this product because everyone was raving about it so I gave it a try. Definitely loving it because of the coconut oil and the way it makes my skin feel. And don’t worry, you don’t have to be hungover to use it. :)

5. Être Belle Cosmetics Golden Skin Roll-on Caviar Eye Gel

I love this eye gel because the rollerball is cool and soothing on my eyes, especially in the morning. Plus it calms my under eye and helps with applying the next product.

6. Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Corrector

This stuff is amazing. When I don’t want to wear a ton of concealer but want to even out my dark under eye circles, it works wonders.

7. Erborian CC Crème

This stuff is great at evening out the slight redness I get on my nose and cheeks. I love how these two products work together to help even out my skin without making me feel like I’m covering my face in a ton of makeup.

8. Bare Minerals Bare Skin Serum Bronzer

I just dab a bit of this on my face to add a bit on color on my face without having to apply powder, bronzer or blush. Works great!

9. The Estée Edit by Estée Lauder Flash Illuminator Fluid Powder & 10. Sephora Collection Pro Featherweight Fan Brush #92

I got this at an event and have been using it ever since. I have also been using it as an alternative for a shimmery eyeshadow, which is really fun. Overall, this product gives off a great glow/sheen and it applies super easily, especially with the #92 brush.

11. Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

If you guys have been following me for a while you all know how much I LOVE this mascara. In this video I quickly show the difference between one eye with it on and the other with nothing and it’s like night and day! Also, I wanted to say that I usually skip eyeliner when it’s super hot because I just feel like it’s one more step and I will probably smudge it somehow when I’m sweating down inside the subway.

12. Cover Girl x Katy Perry Lipstick in Cat Call

I have a bunch of her lipsticks (I even met her – she’s super nice!) and really like the colors and how they are easy to apply. This color (Cat Call) is the perfect summer pink!

Christine Cameron of My Style Pill sharing her road trip essentials 3Outfit Details:

Karen Walker Sunglasses |Zara Jumpsuit (similar and here is a similar version in a shorter style) | Mossimo Sandals via Target

On Thursday we drove out of New York City in a beautiful 2016 Volvo XC90, that the brand loaned to us for our road trip to Cleveland. It took us eight hours to get there (one hour longer than normal because of road work and traffic), which isn’t terrible but definitely isn’t short either, so I wanted to make sure I was prepared to sit in a car for that long and be as comfortable as possible.
