Color Corrective from Black to Caramel Balayage/Ombre

This is a #colorcorrection from Black hair. Client went somewhere else to get a #balayage and came out with a walayage instead 😁. I tried to fix it with a balayage ombre. The results are amazing.  #redkenready #hairstylist #haircolor #myhclook

DIY Lip Exfoliation Scrub

Lip Exfoliation is the first step in fighting chapped, winter lips! Exfoliating your lips daily will help rid of dead skin cells leaving lips soft and smooth, which allows moisture to penetrate your lips! So, if you’re experiencing dry, flaky, and chapped lips this winter use this super easy recipe to make your very own Sugar Lip Scrub. Best part is that you probably have all the ingredients at home already, so get started now!

What you’ll need:
  • Sugar: 1 tablespoon
  • Coconut Oil: 1 teaspoon
  • 1 small plate
  1. Mix 1 tablespoon of Coconut oil with 1 tablespoon of sugar together.
  2. Mix well.

How to use:
  • Take a dime size amount of scrub and rub gently onto dry lips. You can use the tip of your finger or a toothbrush just for the lips.
  • Gently rub until some of the sugar has dissolved.
  • Rinse well with warm water.
  • Apply lip balm
The rest can be saved for a few more days in a small container. That's it. Easy and fast.

Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector SPF 50

Daily Protector SPF 50
This weightless fluid blends effortlessly on clean skin, or you can use it as a layer under makeup in a daily skincare routine. Broad spectrum SPF 50 protects against photo damage, the primary cause of signs of aging. An ultra-fine transparent mineral sunscreen in a virtually invisible universal tint smoothes imperfections and helps natural skin tone appear more even.

Multi-Antioxidants Vitamin E and Lactobionic Acid fortify skin’s natural defense, scavenging free radicals brought on by daily environmental aggressors before they can cause premature aging. A PHA/Bionic complex helps prevent collagen breakdown to maintain a healthy skin matrix and firmness, and helps prevent signs of photo aging such as lines and wrinkles. A highly purified and concentrated form of Green Tea Extract reduces cell breakdown and helps protect cellular DNA for healthy skin. PA++++ highest level of UVA protection.
My Opinion:
The Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector SPF 50 is one of my all time favorite sunscreen for everyday use. I love this sunscreen. A quality sunscreen is the best defense against sun spots and wrinkles. Since I rely heavily on potent treatments like glycolics, my skin has become more sensitive to sun exposure. I take sunscreen very seriously — more than ever — so that I can prevent damage instead of treating it!
I also love it because it doesn’t feel like a mask when I put it on. It’s physically blocking UV rays from my skin but you can’t even tell or feel you have it on. Also the color pigment matches the skin whether it’s tanned or not. It morphs to match my skin color!

What really separates the Exuviance from others is:
  • The slight pigment that covers inconsistencies in your skin.
  • The thin, sheer, light, formula that doesn’t look like pancake makeup.
  • The Polyhydroxy Acid’s (PHA’s) that attract water to the skin keeping it fed and happy, reduce wrinkles like AHA’s but with less irritation, fight free radicals and lighten hyperpigmentation over time.
  • Has Green Tea Extract which helps rejuvenate skin cells, neutralizes UV Light, and fights free radicals.
  • It’s non-comedogenic and doesn’t clog your pores
Suitable for all skin types. Product is fragrance-free, paraben-free and oil-free as well as non-acnegenic, non-comedogenic.

Valentine's Makeup Look using IT Cosmetics

Looking for a new fresh look for Valentine's day? Check this one out.
I am not only in love with the IT Cosmetic brushes but I am also in love with the makeup. I used the foundation, powder and the under eye (Bye Bye Undereye) concealer. All three in the tone of Medium. I love it and I think you all should try it. I also used the contour and highlight pallete from IT Cosmetic.
I only used eyeliner (cat eye wing) and a bold pink lip color. No eye shadows for this look.
