Step in to Autunm Sep 18
With Autunm in our midst, it's time for a new wardrobe, new colours, and a new look for your locks. Here's some tips on the latest trends and colour's.
LOWLIGHTS Is a great way to achieve an Autunm look without totally going drastic. This saves you colouring all your hair in one go and is easy to go back lighter for the summer again next spring. Add some lowlights to blonde hair to achieve a softer warmer colour and to give your hair a rest from lighteners.
BALYARGE is another great way to subtly change your colour and easily rectified come spring. You can smudge your roots out or add some dark tones to give a regrowth free look that will last you through until that christmas appoinmnet. This can lengthen root application time by up to double the time you would usually see your roots come through.

How to check if you're warm or cool skin toned-Aug 18
A quick and simple way that is proven to work for me is to check the colour of your veins! Sounds daft but if you turn your wrists facing up and simply take a look
Green = Warm/Yellow tones
Blue = Cool/Pink tones
Purple = Neutral you lucky thing, you can pretty much get away with anything!
Which MAC foundation should i use? Aug 18
Warm skin NC (yellow tones)and cool skin NW (Pink tones)
For oily, uneven, problomatic skin ( Redness, Acne, Rosacea) Use a full coverage = Studio fix Foundation. This is good on young skin.
If you still struggle with all of the above in your 40's and 50's = Try Prolongwear. It gives great coverage, but not quite as heavy and doesnt show every wrinkle!
For those of you over 40 with good skin and tight pores, go for MAC face and body illuminating foundation
