What happens when I properly brush my hair...

I don't know if anyone knew this, but I NEVER EVER brush my hair.

My hair routine is wash my hair at night, let it air dry, sleep on it to get rid of the frizz, and that's it. My hair is not stick straight like what most Asians have. It has a slight wave to it...not that I don't like it, but I want my hair to look sleek on some days.

A few days ago I took a wide tooth comb to my hair when it was damp, and the result was pretty impressive.

This is what my hair looked like...Yeah, excuse the orange-yness.

And because my hair was so sleek I wanted to do more of a classic look to go with it.

What I used:

Face:
--MAC Pro Longwear foundation in NC20
--MAC Studio Finish concealer NW20
--Ben Nye Poudre Visage in Banana
--NYC bronzer in sunny

Cheeks:
--PF Bronze Booster in Light to medium
--MAC Blush in Harmony to contour
--MAC Blush in Peachykeen
--MAC Soft & Gentle MSF

Eyes:
--MAC Soft Ochre paintpot
--MAC Blanc Type on brows
--MAC Patina on lid
--MAC Goldmine on inner lower lid
--Stila Nanda Devi on brows and outer lower lid
--Stila smudgepot in black

Lips:
--MAC Sheen Supreme in Full Speed

So apparently the rapture is happening today. Guess who's working during the supposed rapture? *raises hand*

I have to go get ready for work now. Hmm....I need to figure out what my "Rapture FOTD" would be. I gotta go out with a bang. LMAO!!!

Have a great day guys!

I'm so jealous of your hair, it looks so soft, shiny, and STUNNING!

Not to mention your makeup is flawless!

Supposedly it's not good to brush your hair if its still wet. Pulls your hair follicles out. I have to brush it when I get out of the shower though, while the conditioner is still in it. Maybe thats why my hair is so thin...

Wow! Your hair looks super silky and shiny!
I wish I didn't have to brush my hair everyday! But if I didn't I'd end up with a giant dread on my head! It tangles waaay too easy! :(

Hey Tao, this look is lovely!! I especially like that amazing lip color~!! But I do think letting your hair air dry is not good for health in the long run, according to my mom with her Asian wisdom. btw, you said in your other post that you like Garden of wisdom products. I have dry skin too and i am wondering which ones you would recommend~~ Thanks in advance!

The third picture of your hair + make up is gorgeous.
Your make up is always very nice but I think "Tao w/ combed hair" makes it look so much more.. refreshing??!
