Braided Hair Bun using a Hair Donut

dress me up hair donutMy new video features and item that has been around for quite a some time but seems to be overlooked, hair padding. They have been used by hairdressers to get secure volume for formal occasions for decades but are so quick and easy to use I think everyone should give the old hair donut a go! In the following video I have used a large size Dress Me Up Hair Donut that I bought from I-glamour a little while ago with some other hair padding items to do a series on. These ones (for the large) retail at $13.95, its really something that will last for years.

This video is for more of an intricate look but if anyone is interested I can do a straight forward version of it too (minus the braiding). (I have cut my hair to my shoulders but it still covers the large size) (more…)

Indola Innova Repair Capsules – Review

About a month ago I was kindly sent a tub of Indola Innova Repair Capsules to try out, I say kindly because it was a sample sent out after the ABBW that I ended up not being able to attend. So this gift was a lovely surprise.

Its no secret that I absolutely adore hair oils, the shine and moisture I have been able to get back to my (very) over coloured hair from them has been nothing short of amazing. So when these repair capsules arrived I was rather excited to try out another type.

“Long term damage won’t repair itself, so tackle each strand from the roots with Innova Repair shampoos, conditioners, leave-in treatments and repair capsules. Keratin treats in 3 dimensions – the cuticle, fibre and matrix of each strand, boosting strength to promote deep, lasting shine.”

Illamasqua Product Overview Part 4

Today I have part 4 of the Illamasqua products overview check out part 1, part 2 and part 3 if you haven’t already! If you haven’t noticed Illamasqua has to be one of my favourite brands, I always find a product I need!

illamasqua motto eye brow cake

 

Motto Eye Brow Cake is a warm taupe brow colour perfect for non golden toned blondes. Applied with a light stroke it effortlessly fills in brows for a fuller look, but applied with a mixing medium it gives a very defined brow. The compact also has a handy mirror in the lid for application anywhere. This has been my go to brow colour for a few months now and I’ve found it perfect for my colouring.

 

The rest of the products are from the Theatre of the Nameless Collection.

I have something I have to ask you, my lovely readers/watchers! I am hoping you’d be willing to spare a few minutes of your time to fill out the survey below I’ve created.

I first started this as a way to find out my actual demographic but I kind of want to know how I’m going, what you are actually interested in, if you want anything to change and stuff like that as well.

Thank you!!!

Halloween–Corpse Bride Practice UPDATED

Here is another look I had a stab at, the Corpse Bride from Tim Burtons fabulous The Nightmare Before Christmas. I was actually having a go at this because it will be a friends costume and I’ll be doing the makeup for her. I just wanted to see what works and have a play around with what products I’ll use. Because it’s a rough go I didn’t bother with blocking corspe bride makeupout my eyebrows and didn’t focus on the skin and lines as much as I will on the day.

I really love this as a costume idea.  I am a massive Burton fan to begin but also because no matter what face your pulling you still look sad- thanks to the eyebrows. This is a great (although extreme) example on how much eyebrows actually make a difference to your overall look.

Mermaid Makeup Tutorial – Halloween

Mermaid MakeupAfter doing the wave envy trial video I felt the need to do a mermaid makeup tutorial so here it is!

As it wasn’t planned I wasn’t entirely sure where the look was going to end up but I’m fairly happy with the outcome. The main thing (if I had to do it again) I would change would be bringing in the scales into the top and center of my forehead. Plus maybe filling in the eyebrows a mix of blue and purple, but of course these things only hit me when I’m looking at still images after I’ve filmed. Oh yeah and not doing it when my eye’s were gross and death like ha!
