When applying your make-up, avoid being heavy handed at all costs! Your complexion should be uniform and even, whilst remaining natural. Get the look by opting for a small amount of foundation for problem areas and dusting over a layer of setting powder for a silky finish. Apply 1-2 coats of mascara to keep things looking natural and finish your look with a pink lip gloss, close to your own lip shade. Take your look from day to night with hypnotising eye make-up. A smudged cat’s eye along the upper lash line will suffice. Looking after your new color.
Keep your color looking fresh and radiant by using products specifically designed with colored hair in mind. Once a week, nourish your lengths with an argan-oil based mask. Try the Colour Therapy
range for ultra-nourishing formulas. For the final touch, apply a pea-sized amount of Nutri Serum to wet or dry hair and distribute evenly, focusing on your dry ends. © Pixelformula / Hermès prêt-à-porter runway, Autumn-Winter 2014-2015 © Jean Louis David
