You Can’t See The Weirdest Thing About This Bizarre Hair Until The Lights Are Off

By Kelly Wilson

As someone who tries (and usually fails) to keep up with the latest hair and makeup trends, I know how tirelessly cosmetics companies work to consistently up the ante. While crazy-colored hair was once reserved for Lady Gaga and mall goths, beauty gurus the world over adopted the trend last year, channelling their inner mermaids into shades of teal, purple, and cobalt blue.

But one mall-goth staple just released a line of dyes that does something incredible when the lights go out. Far beyond fuchsia strands and crimson locks, these high-voltage pigments by Manic Panic take wacky colors to an entirely new level.

Short Medium Long Color Seasonal Styling All Blogs 26 Tips to Help Protect Color-Treated Hair & Keep It Appearing Fabulous Along with proper
hair care as well as a bit of imagination, you can keep your color-treated hair looking vivid and radiant. This really is fantastic news since
70% of women inside the U.S. color their head of hair!

Hair color may make hair moreporous, which in turn causes it to absorb and release moisture content more easily. This can result in reduction in
color elements every time your own hair gets damp. Here are tips on how to keep all the moisture within your hair as possible, by preserving the
absolute best condition.

These colors are intense when the lights are on, but they’re nothing out of the ordinary at this point.

When the lights go down, however, they transform into something rave-worthy.

As highlights and lowlights do for standard styles, different values of glowing pigment add dimension to these neon looks.

Some leave it to stylists, but others harness their inner rave girls at home.

In any case, the outcome is a beauty trend that’s out of this world.

To preserve those essential oils that will help condition your color-treated hair, shampoo just two or three times per week, and never in excess
of every other day. This will help to your current color stay longer and help maintain overall health in your colored hair.

When you can go three or four days ahead of shampooing, even better. This will give the color plenty of time to set.

Wild, edgy hair styles often involve unnatural or “fashion” colors. A wild dye job can sometimes be a calling card to your personality. If you want
to delight in one of these funky hairstyles, but worry about your color diminishing, you’ll need to consider great care of ones own color-treated hair.
On the plus side, there are numerous perfect ways to accomplish that.

I can’t imagine having anything but solid black hair, so I give these people major props for taking their experimentation to such a vibrant extreme. It’s safe to say that this trend is best left to the bravest beauty mavens among us.

Scientists create eco-friendly, biodegradable microbeads – Inhabitat

Scientists create eco-friendly, biodegradable microbeads Inhabitat Microbeads’ detriment to the environment is well-documented, yet many companies continue to put the tiny plastic spheres in their products. Scientists at the University of Bath came up with a solution. They created microbeads from cellulose instead …

The oceans are full of plastic, from bags and bottles to those pesky microbeads. Despite the fact that bacteria is actually evolving to digest some of this trash, much of it will end up wiping out wildlife, or at least end up in their stomachs shortly before we fish them out of the sea and eat them ourselves. Its not the most pleasant of cycles.

Although recycling certainly helps to protect the environment and fight climate change, its likely that making the switch from conventional plastic which takes decades to centuries to break down to bioplastic, a plant-derived type that naturally decomposes in very short spaces of time, is required to make a major difference in this regard.

Fortunately, a team at the University of Bath (UoB) may have just made a breakthrough that will see microbeads replaced with bioplastic versions in the near future.

Microbeads can be found in a wide range of bathroom and skincare products, from soaps to gels to creams to cosmetics. Theyre normally there in order to give them a pleasant texture, or to help exfoliate the skin. Unfortunately, their incredibly small size means that they arent removed by modern sewage filtration systems, and they invariably escape into the open ocean, where animals regularly consume them.

The UK government recently pledged to ban the use of microbeads in products sold and used in the country, and its hopeful that other nations will soon follow suit. Assuming that they do not, however, the UoBs new study in the ACS journal of Sustainable Chemistry and Engineering reveals that there may be another way to solve this problem.

Taking cellulose, the fibrous material found in vegetation that binds structures together, the team found that dissolving it in a particular solution and using it to form tiny beads is not only a workable process, but a surprisingly efficient one. When used in water, they retain their strength and shape but microorganisms quickly break them down into harmless sugars when they turn up in the sewage system.

Not only would this method ensure that trillions of microbeads fail to reach the oceans every single year, but it has the potential to be a low-carbon manufacturing method too. Cellulose is incredibly common, and instead of using plants, it could be sourced from recycled paper.

The teams next step will be to work with industry partners and microbead manufacturers in order to see if their method can be scaled up to a mass production level. If it can be, then it may not be long before those pesky pieces of plastic will permanently be off the menu for all those critters swimming around under the sea.

9 Easy Tips To Take Your Eye Makeup To The Next Level

By Kelly Wilson

At some point in your life, you’ve probably heard someone say that

the eyes are the windows to your soul. And though it might sound corny, chances are, with that many people spouting the
saying, there’s at least some truth to it.

And if that is indeed the case, you’re going to need some amazing window treatments to show them off. It’s so easy to
get stuck in an eye makeup rut, choosing the same colors and products day after day. But it’s time to add variety to your
routine!

Here are 9 easy ways to take your eye makeup game to the next level.

Start by making sure your skin is well-moisturized

The last thing you want to do is cake on your eye makeup. To ensure a smooth application throughout your routine, you
will need a good moisturizer. Choose one that’s lightweight with sunblock, so you’re not only keeping your skin soft,
but also keeping it young.


Brow sculpting is essential

Your eye makeup routine should start with sculpting your brows. No matter how long it’s been since you tweezed or
waxed, a sculpting kit will define your brows and make them the ultimate frame for your face. Just use a gel to get
the perfect shape for your eye brow and ensure there’s not a hair will be out of place. Now you’re off to the races.


Primer is a non-negotiable

When your brows are perfectly sculpted, it’s time to prime your eyelids. DO NOT skip this step: Primer is an essential
product for making sure your shadow and liner stay in place all day, every day..


Smokey Eyes are not Just for Night Time

The term smokey eye typically conjures images of dark, heavy eye makeup. But there’s more to the smokey eye world
than that. Try using browns and golds to lighten the look, and you’ll be ready for work and daytime in no time.


Embrace eye shadow sticks

Powder eyes shadows are such a pain. The residue gets all over your face, and it’s pretty difficult to apply evenly.
To beat those headaches, upgrade your eyelid color with eye shadow sticks. It’s a much more even application, and
the shadow will stay in place and out of your lid creases all day, making yours a seamless day-to-night look.


Don’t let bright, bold eyeliners scare you

Expand your typical routine once in a while and experiment with electric eyeliners. Blues and purples and greens can
look intimidating at first. But if used with neutral shadows, they can be a perfectly edgy choice.


Use white liner on the inner corners of your eye

When you’re layering eye shadow sticks and liners, your actual eye color can start to become secondary to all those hues.
Keep your natural color part of the focus by applying white eye liner to the inner corners of your eyes. It’ll lighten
the look and keep the illusion that your eyes are open wide.


Get yourself a mascara formula that naturally curls

Eyelash curlers add a solid amount of time to your morning routine, and they aren’t the simplest of contraptions to
operate. Skip the curlers and opt for a mascara formula that curls your lashes naturally. To get the full curl treatment,
apply the uplifting mascara to both sides of your lashes.


Keep your lipstick nude so the focus stays on your eyes

Wearing a bold lip AND a bold eye won’t keep you on-trend it’ll be a one-way ticket to Clown College. Your eyes are
an amazing asset, so it’s always a good idea to keep the focus of the world on them. But when you do, make sure you
balance with a neutral lip color. It’ll add a sense of sophistication to your entire look.

 


Say bye bye to your lash curler with new 24HR Supercurler mascara. Brought to you by Rimmel London.

Radiant Blush

By KellyWil

 

Posted From http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/freepeoplefeed/~3/uHV55ejjfqk/

What better time of year to speak to the art of blushing? Vapour’s Shenoa Riegel sheds some light on Artemis…

 

ARTEMIS is the Greek goddess of light, the hunt and the moon. Only fitting that such an independent spirit served as the inspiration for Vapour’s newest Aura Multi-Use shade, created in collaboration with Kathryn Budig, a warrior for self-acceptance, honesty, and helping others find true balance (who also happens to be an internationally celebrated yoga teacher and wellness author).

Kathryn Budig.

Embracing the need for healthy self-expression and authenticity, Vapour is redefining beauty on our own terms. Women want a glow, and we want it to be effortless. Today, multi-tasking beauty tools are essential; they save time in the morning and space in your bag.

Vapour Multi Use Classic Blush is a multi-tasking superhero. One easy swipe of the stick allows flawless application of pigment to cheeks and lips. Just tap to blend. This satin shade can even impart a rosy glow to lids for a polished look. ARTEMIS’  glow allows your untamed spirit to look fresh and rested, even if you aren’t. It’s build-able too; tone it up or down by layering and blending.

“ARTEMIS is the inspiration for my philosophy ‘Aim True’, so it seems only proper to create a color that embodies her fearless self acceptance. I’m hoping everyone who wears it will feel like a goddess; confident and natural.” —Kathryn Budig
