I’ve been meaning to change my hair color for quite some time now and fortunate enough, L’Oréal Professionnel partnered with Park Jun’s Beauty Labto invite us to try INOA, a revolutionary hair colouring technology which is Ammonia-free, provides optimized scalp comfort and has a creamier, smoother consistency. I’ve had my hair colored/retouched for almost ten times and I’ve never been happy with my hair color. That is, until I tried INOA!
Here’s another hair treatment I’d love for you to try. My hair’s still not as manageable as I’d like it to be so I was pretty excited to be part of L’Oreal’s Steampod Hair Revolution! The treatment is said to help get rid of frizz and give you that natural-looking straight hair.
MAC heats things up as they introduce the latest collection, Temperature Rising available now in all MAC stores. I, along with other lucky bloggers , experienced a sultry, sexy makeover thanks to the MAC artists. I do not know where and how to begin describing my love for this collection so let me just start things off with a ‘before’ picture of my makeup sesh with Missy.
These are all the products Missy used on me. She went for a natural dewy look with a smokey eye which is one of the looks I love most. I’ll tell try to tell you each product she used for each step.
Prep and Prime products. Always remember to start with a clean and moisturized face. Then apply BB Cream for fair and glowing looking skin. Apply Concealer on areas that need to be concealed. Again we’re going for a light and natural look so apply minimally then just add on if necessary.
For this next step, you absolutely MUST-HAVE this collection’s Bronzing Powder in Soft Sand. This I definitely recommend. See how natural it looks on your skin. Plus it gives you that radiant look because you’re using a bronzer as contour. After that, she applied a few drops of the liquid bronzer Golden Elixir for highlights.
This next step is probably the second or most important step to some artists. Brows. See how different your face looks when you’ve got well groomed brows? They instantly define the shape of your face. We used the retractable eyebrow pencil Lingering and the brow set Beguile. Not part of the collection, but both are sought-after products since they came out.
For my eyes, we used the collection’s eye pencil Life’s Luxury as the base and the eyeshadow palette Bare My Soul for the main color scheme. Missy used the deep green copper gold color since I was wearing emerald. I’ve never had green eyeshadow before so it was a good thing it was done professionally for the first time. Check it out. What do you think?
For my cheeks, we used the collection’s, Ripe for Love for a peachy color. This way, the blush won’t overwhelm the eyeshadow. it’s a very important tip when doing a smokey eye. For my lips, we used Altered Beige. We used it over a lip pencil (The color I forgot to take note of. Refer to picture above of all items used.) Anyway, here’s the overall look. Doesn’t it make you feel like running to MAC right now?
Here are a couple more photos without the softbox. I love how subtle, light and yet very sexy the makeup feels. Visit the nearest MAC and try out these gorgeous products from Temperature Rising!
Thank you so much Vani for inviting me! Glad to know I can still get down and kick it with the same beautiful, crazy, sweet, and hardworking friend! Always so proud of you!
