Rainbow Brite


My girl Fashionlushxx and I have a to “DYE” for product review over on our YouTube channel: KT+E Unplugged. We have been super into the Dip Dye // Colorful hair trend and feel that it will be making a total resurgence for Spring 2013 [[<– which I can’t wait for btdubs]].

Anyhooo, we have played around with various methods of achieving the Dip Dye look without putting our hair through hell. I was a fan of the Anastasia Hypercolor Hair Powder. It’s good for a one-nighter and washes out in one shampoo. A word to the wise… stick to wearing dark colors and watch your pillowcase when using this product. I mean, it is powder… so it tends to wander. Though the Anastasia powder did the job, we weren’t quite satisfied… that is until we discovered Watercolor!!

This may be my favorite product of the moment, and as a self proclaimed product junkie, that’s saying a lot! This stuff seriously made my hair look, feel, and smell like a million buck$. It’s a super hydrating hair mask that also adds a pop of color. It comes in purple, blue, yellow, red, & pink and you can pick it up at Urban Outfitters[<– select stores only], or order it off their website.

My hair is light brown… somewhere around a level 5 – 6. It showed up really well in my hair, especially toward the ends which are naturally lighter. I basically saturated my hair in this mask from roots to tips. ¬†Erica’s hair is a bit darker… probably around a level 4. It still showed up nicely in her hair, but it was more of a “tint” effect. She applied the mask to the lower 1/3rd of her hair. We found that we got the best results by applying it to dry hair and letting it set for about 30 mins. Then just shower as usual and rinse it out [don’t shampoo… just rinse. You don’t want to dilute it too much.]

I applied the mask on Friday and have shampooed three times since. It’s still lookin’ good. The color gets more subtle with each shampoo, but this stuff has definitely got some staying power. I would use this product for the way it makes my hair feel alone. The¬†ridiculously¬†good smell and cute colors are a total added bonus. I will definitely be buying more in the very near future.

Must Have Mondays: Let’s Talk About Brows Baby!!

Some might say that I’m a bit brow-obsessed… and they would be right. I think if more people knew what a properly shaped brow could do for their entire look they would hop on board the brow wagon as well. Let me start by saying how brows absolutely frame your face and complete your look. You may be rocking the hottest outfit, bombshell hair, and killer makeup… BUT… if your brows aren’t done it will look like something’s missing! I honestly don’t even go to the gym without filling in my brows! Here are a few helpful hints…
123 brows
Everyone has a natural shape to their brows. You may have a high arch [think Megan Fox], a rounded arch [think Jennifer Aniston], or no arch [think Selena Gomez]. You may prefer a more modest brow or a big, bold, beautiful brow. Work with what God gave you, as well as your personal preference. If you are new to the brow scene I recommend going to a professional. They will be able to shape your brow in the most appropriate and flattering shape for your face {got a Benefit Brow Bar near by?? They are my personal fave!!} If you choose to brave it on your own, please follow these simple rules of thumb…

Brows 101
1) Take a pencil and hold it vertically along the side of your nose. Where the pencil and your eyebrow meet is where the brow should start.
2) Again, take the pencil and look straight ahead. Line the pencil up with your pupil. Where the pencil ends should be the highest point of your arch.
3) Take the pencil one last time and hold the pencil from the side of your nostril to the outer corner of your eye so that it extends to the eyebrow region. This should be where your brow ends.

benefit brows a go go

My absolute fave product for filling in my brows is Benefit’s Brows a-go-go kit. It has anything and everything you could ever need to shape and accentuate your brows. It contains a light and dark color of the brow zings powder, brow zings wax, eye bright & brow highlighter, mini tweezers, an angled brush, and smokin’ black eyeliner. Whether you’re a brow newbie or a seasoned pro… this kit is the perfect fit. As you now know, the fab Fashionlushxx and I have joined forces to bring you KT+E Unplugged.
