Ask Kate (lots of beauty hair + makeup ?’s answered!)


I filmed another Ask Kate video recently! I forgot how much I enjoy these! I always put a call out for questions on my facebook page so make sure you follow along there to see when I’m getting ready to film!

  • why does hair get “used” to shampoo after a while and get so dull and lifeless? How often should you switch up shampoo?
  • Do you recommend an eyelash primer? If so, which one? My mascara always flakes off and leaves a residue under my eyes. Thanks!!
  • When washing hair at night, when/how do you apply products? I.e. Blow dry before bed, re-wet in morning and start fresh?
  • What is the difference/benefits between hair conditioner, leave in spray conditioner and hair serum. Do I need all three every time?
  • What do you do with your hair in the shower on days you don’t wash? Shower cap? High pony?
  • Do you still get Birchbox or can you recommend any monthly beauty boxes?
  • What is the difference between bronzer and contour? How do I know which one I need?
  • Best eyeliner for super humid weather and oily eyelids?

    What is your favorite hair serum. Humidity is a real downer for me! Pardon the pun! Lol I end up with frizz and limp hair. I have med length hair and usually bend the mid to end pieces with large curling iron.

      Can you also suggest a good heat protector for thin, stick straight hair? I want to protect it without weighing it down or making it greasy.

    Can I ask a q for ur next video – how do you manage post pregnancy hair??? Currently mine is thick as anything (early post partum), but I know the shedding is going to start… then it’s thin, then the regrowth – insert a billion little fly away hairs that are like fishing wire and impossible to tame. How do u make your hair look good with its thin and frizzy with lots of short regrowth coming through? Ta!!

    I have been watching your blog for years and I respect your opinion. 😊 I am in cosmetology school and I am looking to purchase the T3 styling tools for when I graduate. Just want to know what your opinion is on that brand?
