Dewy , Radient Skin 101

Ready set Glow! Want to achieve this look!? 

Here is a few pro tips on what products will give you this Radient Glow and finish, using the right products and also a great skincare routine are key ! 

 

Tips from the Pro: 

 

Use a Radient or “Glow” enchancing primer before foundation, this will boost the effect of the “Glow” under your foundation or tinted moisturizer! 

Also , you can use a oil-primer to also help with dry patches or skin prior to primer application. 

I used NARS “Longwear Radient Foundation” to give a Glow and satin-like texture to the skin , I also finish with a setting mist from M0RPHE to set, and give a boost of radiance!

Short hair Don’t care.

How many people have cut their hair ? Either for trendy look, or because you said why not ?! Try the pixie ! Lol .. Either way it’s rather it takes some guts to take more than 4 inches of hair ! I recently had to re-start my own hair due to stress it started thin ; me “I am not my hair “ if something has to be cut it has to go, so I did it! I had to take maybe 2 inches off which isn’t a whole lot ! Yes I know , but it does make a major difference! It felt rather liberating while cutting it , I have more uniform hairstyle now and it’s easy to grow -out healthy! 

 

3 tips for haircuts & Beauty Secrets

 • Make sure you communicate how many inches you would like to stylist, ask for a comb to demonstrate if needed.

• trims every 3-4 months helps adviod split ends ! 

• beauty tip : make sure you define your eyebrows , short hair styles draws more focus on the face ..creating a defined brow balances out feminine features.  I used brow pencil. The photo below I faded her brow to appear “bleached” for the desired look.

Color Theory - Why ?

Color theory is the foundation of how colors appear to flow in design of any form of art, it shows with beauty industry with colors selected to make you “feel” something! For example, the color green means “ZEN”, or can also be defined as “Greed” , depends on the mood of the creative. Why do you think Target , or Mc Ds always makes you want / desire it? Primary color Red is used massive with their marketing , Red symbolizes passion and love . Not to add butttt doesnt their popcorn & fries smell amazing lol!? 

 

Study color theory as a artist this is a major key in EVERY form of art , hair , makeup , fashion!

Texture and curly hair is so beautiful when blonde ! But let’s admit we are all hesitant to experience due to bad past salon experience, or damage to hair Right!? The key to healthy blonde is treatments and “lifting” slow! So remember, if you desire silver hair and your hair is brown that is serveral (8)levels higher than your natural color, that’s quite a journey!  No higher than 20vol on my clients each service, and I always pre-book next process to keep it steady and ready ! 

 

Tips : 

•Always use a leave -in treatment with color hair!

•Weekly treatments are key ! Use a repairing mask to help shine and moisture! 

•Trim those ends! Keep your end fresh and healthy to advoid split ends ! Every 3-4 months is recommended.
