One of the most important things, no wait... the MOST important thing is for the curls to last! When you have lots of long hair its a challenge to make curls last. A trick of mine is to start with the hair prepped right, a great dry styling spray (Unite) on at least a day or 2 of non washed hair. (yes, clean hair does not obey!) and set in electric curlers (2 sets used here!)I let them set and cool while I did the make up, a half hour or more. After the make up was finished we used a half inch curling iron on the bottom half of the curls for extra insurance! Then used a good holding hairspray
"Allnet" that was still touchable, not stiff and sticky.
For the make up I used Kett airbrush foundation because its non transferable and looks fresh and lasts all day! I did a smokey eye in warm plum tones and lots of individual lash clusters because they are so comfortable.. Nars outlaw blush, and a nude lip completed the look.
