Hello world. It was brought to my attention that as this photo made its way around the net, a lot of people had a few questions. So I decided to answer them for you:
1) What type of make up I use?
It is no secret that I am a MAC Makeup junkie!!! I use the highlighting/contouring method, but I keep my tones in close proximity to my skin tone. My skin tends to pull yellow, so, I use MAC's NC line, versus NW which is warm and is for red skin tones. Fading/Blending is also a major step in applying makeup. In most cases, I use my finger to fade/blend and sometimes a sponge to smooth.
2) What products created/defined my curls?
On this particular day, it was still warm out, so I drenched hair in water, and followed with Curls Unleashed Curl Boosting Jelly. Then, applied Eco Styler (with argan) to the sides for extra control (this keeps me from frizzing out). And finally, finished with Curls Passion Fruit Control Paste (all over). I have since laid this method down as it is growing cold out, and am now working on perfecting my winter regimen.
3) What color do I have in my head?
Well this color is actually old. I applied it back in July from the Pravana ChromeSilk Vivids line. It is a professional color that we use in the salon. When I decided to go purple, it was on a whim, and I figured it would rinse out just like the red, seeing as they were by the same company. Well, I couldn't have been more wrong. This purple has yet to fade out or rinse out. So, I have to either lift it out, or allow it to grow out. I'm still undecided though as to whether or not I'm ready for a change. We will see....
4) Lip color?
Well, as I mentioned before, its a MAC frenzy. So, to achieve this color, I applied Nightmoth liner, filled with Candy Yum Yum (matte), and finished with Goes and Goes Pro Longwear - all by MAC!
Before leaving: We had such an amazing time in Dallas (this photo is from one of the events). So if you are wanting to view more of the photos/videos, click the links below.
