Last weekend I changed my hair colour from fire engine red to deep cherry (even surprised myself!). As is often the case with home colouring, I wasn’t exactly sure how it would turn out. If the truth be known, my first thought was EEK, what have I done! But if I think back, that's always been my reaction when I've made a dramatic change - it usually takes a bit of getting used to when you've had the same colour for a while. Although this shade is far deeper than I expected, I’m absolutely loving it :-)
It’s a rare thing for me to wake up in the morning, glance quickly in the mirror while I comb my hair, and have my face look good without makeup. Believe me as I've aged, looking ok barefaced starts to become a long lost dream, so I’m very pretty chuffed that I managed to achieve a shade that’s amazingly flattering to my skin tone, and especially minus the slap.
For me a new hair colour always means a re-evaluation of my makeup shades, from lipstick through to blush & bronzer, and most definitely eye shadow. So for day one, I opted for a similar toning to my locks. Probably more of a broody Autumn/Winter look, but I’ll be playing around with some Spring brights later in the week.
Here’s what I used…
bhcosmetics black liquid liner to tightline the top lashes
MNY Color Tattoo in Pomegranate Punk all over the lid as a base
Revlon Luminous Color Diamond Lust shadow in Starry Pink along the top lashline
MUA matte charcoal (Shade #20) towards the crease and underneath
MNY Precise Liquid Liner on the lower lashline
Benefit EyeBright on the waterline
MUA matte beige on the hood...
Do you colour your hair at home? How often do you review your makeup kit shades?
Take care of you,
