hair-coloringTake the time to do a Proper Color Consultation. Show your customer your Shade Chart. Check what her color level is today and what level she wants it to be. Decide on the desired shade with her.

Choose the Right Strength of Developer. Use 20 Vol Developer if the desired shade involves 1-2 levels lift, 30 Vol Developer for 2-3 levels lift, and 40 Vol Developer for 3 levels lift and more.

Decide if prelightening is needed. If your customer wishes to go more than 3 levels lighter, you will need to use either a lightening powder or high-lift colors.

Get your Mix Ratios right. Check the instructions of the hair color brand that you are using. The most common mix is 1 part color to 1 part Developer. High Lift Colors sometimes require 1 part Color to 2 parts Developer. Bleach is generally 1 part color to 1 part Developer, but you need to make sure that the mixture is sufficiently runny so that it does not dry out during the processing.

Makeup Tips for the Contact Lens Wearer

Posted on April 25, 2016 By

Choosing products

When you wear contact lenses, choosing your makeup products is a little more complicated than just choosing the ones you like. You need to consider your lenses and your eyes as well as your look. But firstly, wash your hands and put your lenses in before you begin with your eyes makeup or even put on any moisturiser. This reduces the chance that the lens will brush against the makeup and carry it into the eye. Consider using a primer too before you start as these help keep the makeup in place.

When you pick eye shadow, opt for a cream product over a powder one as these are less likely to get into your eyes. When selecting a cream product, go for water based rather than oil based products as the latter will cause more irritation if it does get into your eyes than the former.

Eye liner is a popular look for many ladies but isn’t ideal for contact lens wearers. This is because the eyeliner is applied to the waterline underneath the eye lashes and puts it very close to the lens. It also blocks the oil glands of the

Knowing the best makeup for your face and skin type is not easy. We often get stuck up with which products to buy and whether they will actually be of any help. But that’s nothing to be disheartened about. Once you start, you gradually learn what is required to accentuate your best features. Here are a few tips and tricks to get you started.

1. When applying eyelash paint on the lower lashes, use a plastic spoon under your eyes. This way the paint will not smear all over your skin. It will also give you a thicker coat.

2. Before applying blush, determine your face shape. It is important because blush not only adds colour but also defines your cheek bones. The way it is applied can either accentuate or soften your features.

3. To conceal eye bags, it is best to apply a darker shade of foundation to the puffy area. It effectively conceals the puffy area under the eyes.

4. If you want a natural looking eye makeup, your placement of highlights should be proper. Apply lighter shades first in the inner corners, in the middle of the eye and just

Learn Simple Tips On How To Apply Concealer

Posted on March 25, 2016 By

Most girls really love to wear makeup whether at work or when going out with friends. But even if you are the type of girl who likes to go to work sans makeup, it is still a good idea to brush up on your knowledge of simple makeup tips like how to apply concealer and how to apply mascara, especially for special occasions. If you are just trying to learn how to apply a concealer, here are a few important things shared by beauty experts that you need to remember.

The main function of a concealer is to hide or offset the shadow under the eyes. It may also be used for elaborate makeup applications and to highlight certain features of the face. Concealers are often used in the area under the eyes because the eyes are set back to the sockets, thus creating a shadow. Also, the eye area has a thinner skin layer which leads to the surface veins becoming more noticeable and prone to discoloration.

For women who are fortunate to have no dark circles under the eyes, they can do away with the use of a concealer. Ideally, the concealer that you

The eyes are the windows to the soul. We’ve all heard this saying before and intuitively, we trust a person with big, honest eyes. What seemed to be just an old wives’ tale, was actually confirmed by scientific research that found that patterns in the iris can give an indication of whether we are warm and trusting or neurotic and impulsive.

Unfortunately, there’s not much we can do about the natural shape and size of our eyes, as those are determined genetically. However, there are ways to create the illusion of big, beautiful eyes with makeup. I will take you through some simple tips and tricks to enhance your features and make your eyes look bigger.

1. Groom Your Eyebrows

This is a very important step to making your eyes look larger. Using slant-tipped tweezers, pluck stray hairs from beneath your brow to help elongate and slim the face. Follow the natural curve of your eyebrow. Your eyebrow should arch at a spot above the outer edge of your iris. Fill in any gaps by using an eyebrow pencil.
