foundation brush set

Image

Hello dolls,

I will share with you the best brushes to use for perfect and easy applicant so lets start 🙂

for face : applying foundation, concealer and finishing powder (lose powder)

I found that the best foundation brush is the fiber brush because not only provides fast and quick application but gives you a flowless and airbrush finish in no time.

My tip: when i apply my moisturiser i spread it on my face with the brush then apply foundation that way i use less foundation and get flowless finish.

Next is the concealer brush. flat brush is the best and could be used under eye and concealing red spots on the face

Image

face powder comes last but is essential to set the makeup to last longer and can also be used for applying blusher (if your using light natural blush)

there you go, the essential brushes for perfect flowless look and my next blog will be on eyeshadow essential brushe set 🙂 cheerss

Understanding of blonde hair

Hello

Today I will guide you through the process to achieve blonde hair.

20111210-170510.jpg
whether it is dark blonde, pale blonde or even platinum blonde, having the right tools and knowledge will make you achieve the desired color and keep your hair healthy. No 1 really wants fried blonde hair 😦 so let’s start;

To get blonde hair one must understand the process which consist of:
Bleaching
Treatment ( conditioning. )
Toner

bleaching : this is the first step and the most important of all, once this is done the right way, you can assure that the desired color will be achieved.
Bleaching powder should be the blue powder to eliminate the red tone from hair, and is mixed with developer of vol. 30 at max because the 40 vol and above is damaging to the hair.
This process can be done twice or three times at Max. You want your hair to be yellow like the banana skin and not whiter then that.
Between the first bleaching and the second you must condition the hair and rest it for at least 2 days then continue the bleaching round.
When applying the bleach mix to the hair, always leave an inch from the roots. apply to the entire hair, leave it for 50 min then apply to the roots and leave it for 5 more minutes.

This is your banana hair and where bleaching process should stop.

conditioning: between bleaching the most important thing is conditioning, try to invest on good conditioner that repairs damaged hair. Try wella or l’oreal

toner: once your hair is bleached to a banana skin color then you are ready to tone it to get the blonde or platinum hair color.
Toner is mixed with developer of 10 vol. Because we want to deposit color at this stage.

Now your toner depends on your color result. It’s always better to pick the hair guid book and see the hair color your planning to achieve then garb the toner number indicated in the book.

maintainance: to maintain the color result you should frequently use the blue shampoo.
once in a while when using blue shampoo, keep it on the hair for a little while, when doing so the blue shampoo acts as a toner and eliminate brassiness and any orange or yellow undertone :).
Also deep condition the hair at least once a week…

That’s it dolls you are now ready to enjoy being blonde 🙂 xoxo

Understanding of black hair

Hi girls

Black hair color is always known as damaging hair color basically because it’s hard to get off if decided to go lighter in hair color…

Well in that note I would only recommend the semi hair color because it is a toner.

The brand I would really recommend is loreal casting gloss because I have tried it on my dark blonde and got incredible result that really stayed on 🙂

20111206-235848.jpg

So bottom line if your going for black hair color semi hair color is the go to because its conditioning, wont damage the hair and most of all it’s not impossible to remove and go lighter 😉

This is my hair before ( blonde) to black using semi hair color loreal casting creme gloss in 200

Understanding of Red hair

20111129-013809.jpg

We all know that it’s easy to get red hair but hard to maintain..

In getting red hair one must know the color that is wanted to achieve, if it’s pop red or dark wearable or what I like to call uniform color 😉

To achieve wearable red, hair must be brown in color, either light brown ( light red) or medium brown ( darker red). If you hair is darker then medium brown then bring your hair to medium or light brown by using white powder bleach because we want to lighten hair but keep the red pigments ( if that makes sense)
Next dye your hair with any red hair color box and below are 2 of my best box colors

20111129-020537.jpg

20111129-020609.jpg

And your done

As for maintaining the red color intensity I love love love the loreal casting hair color. It’s temporary hair color that acts as your conditioning toner.. This is to be applied once a month

20111129-021045.jpg

And there you have it..Red hair color to stay

Dry skin foundation

Hello dolls,

As I was requested from a friend of mine to write about foundation routine for dry skin.
The main thing in applying face makeup is to prime your face and apply UV cream. A good uv cream is olay in my believe because it gives you everything you need plus 20 to 30 uv protection 🙂

20111122-224834.jpg

Then apply your liquid foundation. Now depending on ur look or coverage you going for, medium or full coverage.
Again for medium coverage I would recommend olay because it’s uv cream + tint of foundation.

20111122-225248.jpg

Or if your going for a good coverage try MAC fx or l’oreal or even revlon color stay, these are the best for dry skin and coz no breakouts.

20111122-231934.jpg

20111122-231943.jpg

And always finish it up with loose powder so that makeup lasts you all day

20111122-232831.jpg

P.s: hands down still on the garnier roller with tint of color as your concealer 😉 your eyes will love you xxx

Understanding brown hair

Brown hair is in now a days and there are tons of different browns from light, medium to dark brown.
The main focus is to know if your going for golden reddish brown or cool/ ash brown …

20111121-233047.jpg
Picture above shows medium to dark brown but with red undertone, which in the hair dye box will be the brown with chestnut or worm hair color.

20111121-233515.jpg
As for the above picture it’s medium brown but with ash or cool tone, so it will be written in the dye box ash brown or cool brown whether it’s light, medium or dark brown.
So to get the exact color, bleaching your hair if it’s dark then coloring with box dye
But if your hair is light and your going brown ( darker) then you have to make sure that your hair is with reddish hue if your coloring to worm browns or ash base if your going cool browns.

Example:
Black or dark brown hair and want to achieve chestnut brown ( red base)
To do: bleach hair with white powder bleach and developer then use the box dye desired 🙂
Note: developer usage depends on the result of brown wanted to achieve, light brown 30 vol, medium to dark brown 20 vol.

If you want to get ash brown from dark hair as well,
To do: bleach hair with blue powder bleach and developer then color using box dye that says ash brown or cool brown whether it’s light, medium or dark ash brown
Note: developer usage depends on the result of brown wanted to achieve, light brown 30 vol, medium to dark brown 20 vol.

Now that it’s clear I’ll post some reddish brown hair color and ash browns just to get more ideas and clear thoughts on brown levels
Cheers

Understanding bleaching and box dye

Hi all,
First of all I’ll post briefly about hair bleaching

In hair bleaching we look to achieve two results browns and reds or whites and blues.
These are the hue that result when bleaching, the difference we get by using white powder bleach or blue powder.

20111121-221930.jpg

20111121-222248.jpg
With the powder we mix the cream developer. Now the ratio of powder to developer depends on the brand of the bleach and developer. Some times it’s one scope of powder to 2 scope of cream or just one and one.

20111121-222625.jpg

20111121-222632.jpg

20111121-222639.jpg

20111121-222616.jpg
The cream developers are volumised from 10 to 40
Vol 10 is the least and generally used to tone the hair ( will talk about it later on)
Vol 20 is used to remove the previous hair coloring as it lightens the hair but slightly.
Vol 30 is best used for bleaching with white or blue powder as it is the least damaging and might need to apply it to hair twice or more cos it gradually bleach without damaging hair as much as 40 vol

Vol 40 is used if you have healthy hair and want to achieve quick result , knowing that it’s the most damaging developer due to it’s high percentage of peroxide.

After bleaching hair you must color or tone the hair, hair can not be bleached only

Green undertone !!

20111114-160642.jpg

Hi babes,

In this year’s hair color we defiantly noticed a lot of green undertones weather it was dark brown, light brown or even blonde.

We are talking about cool colors or colors that has cool tone cos this basically means that the hair color contains cool tone of blue or green underneath it.

The easiest way to achieve these gorgeous hair color if your hair is already dyed is to add cool tone to it. Toners will let your hair pick up an under tone which u need to get this greeni undertone.

Eliminating or removing red tone n depositing green or blue tone is what your going for. ( blue tone if your goin black )

20111114-162115.jpg

so if your going blonde

20111114-162233.jpg

platinum blonde

20111114-162334.jpg

Or even dark brown

20111114-162435.jpg

Make sure its with cool tone of green or blue cos cool tones are the color for 2011-2012
Who said we can’t get hair color that suits us and still be in trend 🙂 xoxo
