New Born Lasting W Brow LB3 Shiseido – Review

Do you prefer pencil, powder, mascara applicator, liquid pencil or wax for your eyebrows.  I’ve used them all and I must say that liquid brow pencil and crayon is one of my favorites.  It is user friendly and helps create a very natural look.  I used to have water in a mini spray bottle to wet my angel brush so I can use my eye shadow as a brow filler.  But, now I don’t need to do that.

New Born Lasting W Brow LB3 has become a must-have for my daily make up routine.  Nice looking brows can help shape and enhance the rest of your face.  Remember to trim and clean it often so they don’t look like they’ve been neglected.

One end of the dual brow filler is a thin, pointed applicator brush that can help achieve a nice line and shape for the end of your brows.  The other end is a twist crayon so you don’t need to sharpen it.

Look at your hair color and use a color that is slightly lighter than your hair color so when you fill in your brows they won’t look like you have a pair of bushy Caterpillars.

Below are some images I’ve taken and I’m apologize for the blurriness as I lost my camera.


Kevin Murphy Fresh.Hair! ~Review~

Like I’ve said before, shampooing your hair will strip it of all it’s wonderful natural oils that our hair needs.  It’s particularly damaging on your hair if you have colored hair.  Why not preserve the hair color and shampoo only every few days and prolong the shade of color that you have tried so hard to achieve.

My favorite dry shampoo for the past 6 months has been Kevin Murphy’s FRESH.HAIR.  It’s totally awesome.  It smells lemony fresh but not in a household cleanser sort of way.  It’s very refreshing and I have been telling everyone.  I used to wash my hair in the morning so I can have freshly cleansed hair throughout the day.  Even then, sometimes it gets a little oily and flat from all the environment of the hair salon.  I always get a little sweaty after running around so my scalp and hair needs quick fix.  This product instantly gives texture, removes excess oil and odor.

Finals are over!

The past few weeks was hectic for all of us in class because we had 2 exams, one written and the other was practical.  Other than that, I had a change of hair again!  Within the last five months, I cut my hair 3 times!  I had hair that went down to my lower back, then I cut it to mid back and eventually shoulder length and now it’s a short bob.  I had my hair cut into an inverted layers and loved it but the perm gave it weight around my jaw line and cheeks, which I did not need.  So, I shifted the weight from around my jaws to on the top of head which gave me more volume and evened out the proportions of my face.  I am very happy with this look and it is so easy to do in the morning.  I apply products to wet hair and scrunch-blow-dry.  Thank you Chelsea, you’re the best!

When I had my perm done, the color I had in my hair fell right out so after a couple of weeks, I applied some low lights that were the same color as my natural tone to create some depth and plus, it’s so low maintenance. (Thanks Vicks!)  Now, I don’t even have to color my hair for a long time since the perm has limited me with different chemical services.


Perm with inverted layers is not very pretty...

Becoming a Hairdresser Week 14 + 15

On week 14 we had a short and easy week due to the holiday season.  It is really nice to have a few days of break once in a while to recuperate and regain the strength to keep pushing yourself to work harder.

Last week, I did a Balayage technique on a client and it was so fun!  The results were wonderful and I can’t wait to do it again on someone else.  This technique was first developed in the 1970’s in Paris and the word in French means “to sweep”.  Chunky highlights are not cool anymore.  The hair lightener is applied with a sweeping motion and without foils so the result is more natural and easy to maintain since it is not applied near the roots.

Baylayage is becoming increasingly popular and can be seen on TV and magazines everywhere.  Which girl doesn’t want beautiful sun-kissed hair that brightens their face and gives them glow!  I sure do! Here are a few pictures of the technique.
