Hey guys, wow, it’s been a while since I posted. Very sad, no excuses.
This is the first of three official Halloween looks that we are doing at Urban Decay this year. We were sent three facecharts with product lists to work from, and I’ll be recreating them the next few days. I love this look, it’s super cute (even though I look more like a cat than a mouse haha)
Take a look at the facechart and product list down below if you’re wanting to recreate this look too, and if you do, remember to use the hashtag #UDHalloween so we can all see it. I’ll be back with another look tomorrow.
Around two months ago I decided that I needed a little hair change – as I always do – dyed my hair orange and chopped off my long bangs. It’s been fun, but as usual I’m about to go back to my lovely pastels. There’s just one more 80’s work look involving crimped hair and Whitney Houston makeup that must happen next week before getting back to basics. So, I thought I would share my orange hair tips before saying goodbye.
Orange is fun. Constant redying, is not. I started out with Direction’s Apricot which looked cool, but lasted approximately one hair wash. Do not recommend. Next I mixed Direction’s Mandarin with a tiny blop of Bright Daffodil. Cool color, better longevity, pretty bad fading. Boo. However, the orange that has worked best for me has been Napalm Orange from Special Effects. The color starts out a dark, neon red-ish orange that almost hurts to look at (picture six) and fades into a nice, intense yellow based orange (picture five) that after five hair washes still doesn’t need any touching up. Very pleased with Special Effects as always and will keep using their hair dyes for my next adventure. Talking about that, please say a little prayer to the hair gods for me so my hair will go blonde without any nasty stains when I bleach it next week..
I just returned to work after five days of vaction spent visiting my lovely grandparents, secondhand shopping, eating way too much food and enjoying more quiet surroundings – the fuzz of working in central Copenhagen is something I love, but sometimes smaller towns can be refreshing. I’ve also managed to go (rainbow) blonde for now after struggling to remove ye good ol’ purple hairdye that left a very unpleasant green tint in my hair. But I have a brand new bottle of Special Effect’s Cupcake Pink waiting for me, so it probably won’t be long until I return to my natural hair color – baby pink. Are you guys enjoying the spring weather kicking in?
When change come, my hair must change too. I’m that kind of person with everchanging hair and it’s been this way for as long as I can remember. There’s just something refreshing about it, whether it be a new haircut or color. Since I’m very pleased with my current color I decided to grab a hair knife and slice away. I really like how it turned out.. for now. In a few weeks it will probably bore me to death and something new must happen haha.
