For my NaBloPoMo Nov. 11, I’m going to go into detail about today’s salon experience. I was at the salon from around 5:45 pm until 8:30 pm (though the last half hour I was waiting for Sara to finish with her last client, which wasn’t too bad at all). Ray went with me, as he got his hair cut, too. ~ This evening I went to get my hair cut and colored by Lori, my lovely stylist as Cameo salon. I also had the talented Sara adjust my extensions and rearrange them a bit. To deal with the mess left on my hair from L’Oreal Feria Midnight Collection Violet Soft Black she custom blended 2 fashion shades together (I think in the Redken permanent line), to closely match my mix of darkest auburn and black extensions that are on my right side. She used different levels of developer since my roots were lighter and didn’t have the permanent color on them, but my ends were black.

Pure Golden Heroic

I decided to do a very gold look this morning. I started out by using Femme Fatale Cosmetics’s Heroic, which is described as a copper tinged peach with gold shimmer. It looks very gold/peach to me. I used Nyx’s Pure Gold in the crease and on the outer corner of the lid. To darken the outer crease and outer corner of the lid, I used the dark brown with a bit of gold glimmer from the L’Oreal Watchful Owl palette. I also used that to darken my upper lash line. For the lower lash line, I used UD’s 24/7 liner in Honey along the inner lower lash line and UD’s 24/7 liner in Bourbon along the outer lower lash line. To highlight I used MUFE’s 902 Pearl Gold. When I say gold look I really do mean gold. I used tokidoki’s bronzer in Royal Pride as my blush and Tarte’s provocateur in Champagne to highlight on my face. For my lips I started out with Buxom’s lip stick in Marrakech to line my lips. Then I used Bobbi Brown’s metallic lipstick in Beige Gold on top of that. Finally, I used a bit of Kat Von D’s gloss in Hustler. […]
