I used the FIX styling stick from Bench (put on LOTS of it). I gave away all of my good styling wax after saying goodbye to the faux-hawk. I sort of regret doing that now since I'm liking this pulled-back look! Washing my hair after the event was sort of a pain in the ass. Forgot that the trick is to put on shampoo on dry hair first, wash, shampoo again and then put on tons of conditioner.

This was the outfit I hastily put on for the 15th birthday of Cosmo Philippines. For my makeup, I focused on big lashes and a bold lip since I couldn't do anything fussy with my eyes. I ripped my hazel contacts yesterday and I had to go for grey ones since the optical shop only had that color for my grade. I felt like my whole face would be too colorful if I placed on too much eye shadow.

 I'm supposedly on a self-imposed house arrest this month so I've been evading all forms of events, but I'm glad I made last night an exception since I got to see a lot of my friends!

did you put the styling stick on wet or dry hair? also, did you put it directly to your hair or on your palms first? thank u!

Directly on my hair! Took so many applications to make it stay put :))
