Jack Frost – Transformation Tuesday

Jack Frost – Transformation Tuesday

One of the most popular transformations I have completed to date was a self paint over the Christmas break. I called my Christmas Series #TwistedChristmas.

Day 1 of Twisted Christmas was transforming myself into Jack Frost from Rise of the Guardians.

Products Required:
White & Grey/Gray Hair Chalk
White Face Paint (Snazaroo)
Light Blue Face Paint (Snazaroo)
Black Face Paint (Snazaroo)
Nyx White Liquid Liner
Sleek Lifeproof Foundation 01 (mixed with white face paint)
Urban Decay Smoky Palette Eyeshadows
Nyx Brow Gel Chocolate
Tissue Paper
Cotton Wool
Liquid Latex
Fake Blood
2 Twigs – 1 straight & 1 curved
Silver or White Glitter

I started with the thick brows to get the more male shape to them and used the Nyx angled brow brush with the Nyx brow gel to sculpt them into the thick shape.

Next I mixed the Sleek foundation with white face paint and applied with a flat foundation brush then using a beauty blender I blended any streaks out.

Using the Urban Decay smoky palette I used a mix of brown and grey shades to shadow the eyes and contour the cheekbones lightly. Using a brown shade I created frown lines between the brows.

Taking the Nyx white liquid liner I applied in spots down the face and on the lashes and on the lips.

Using a big paint brush I applied the light blue Snazaroo paint down the arms, across the chest and torso and round the base of the neck.

Taking a smaller paint brush I used the black Snazaroo paint to add detail to the clothing, creating seams, a hood and tassels.

Next I used a smaller detail brush to add the frost details and highlights/ stitches to the clothing with the White Snazaroo paint.

Using your ring finger dip it into the white or silver glitter and dab it around the frost on the hoody.

Next for the gore… Taking cotton wool and liquid latex pull a cotton wool ball apart slightly and apply to the forehead and allow to dry. Use scissor to create a small hole for the curved twig to wedge into. To secure apply latex and tissue around the edge and allow to dry. Use foundation and white paint to match skintone then apply liquid fake blood.  Repeat the same steps but with the straight twig near the mouth on the opposite side of the face to give the illusion that Jack has been impaled by his staff.

Using a finger apply fake blood to chin and other side of the mouth and drip down the temple.

Finally apply shading to the neck to give the frosty look.

For the hair dampen with water and rub the white and grey/gray hair chalk all over comb through and dry with the hair dryer.

Take some selfies and then use the Facetune app to make eyes really blue and icy. and to blend the white/silver hair better.

Good Luck and Have Fun…

Transformation Thursday

A lot has changed these past few months, I cut my hair into a stylish pixie cut and joined the Strands Hair Lounge Team as a Hairstylist and Make Up Artist.

Last week my fabulous boss Adelle transformed my hair from box dyed brunette to a rose gold metallic wonder and I LOVE IT ❤

The process:
Step 1. bleach the ends where the box dye remained
Step 2. Bleach my natural roots
Step 3. Rinse and Shampoo
Step 4. Apply Rose Gold Wella Olaplex
Step 5. Rinse, Double Shampoo and Condition
Step 6. Trim and Reshape
Step 7. Add Styling Mousse
Step 6. Blowdry with a round brush for volume
Step 7. Styling Wax and Hairspray

I have never been more obsessed with a hair colour than this one. It changes depending on the light I am and looks so healthy and shiny.

Who else wants Unicorn Hair?

Thank you, Adelle!

Braving Brunette

Saturday 17th June 2017 – returning to the dark side.

A few weeks ago I woke up and thought I need to dye my hair – I do have these impulsive moments and I usually end up on some spontaneous trip somewhere last time it was for a piercing.

I decided I wanted to return to the dark side after a very long hiatus from the hair dye. I had spent the past 3 years maybe a bit longer letting my hair be healthy and dye free and grow without as much damage. A couple of months before this thought I had another spontaneous moment and got the right side of my hair shaved into an undercut! (Britney Spears moment – pre-break up).

So on this thought of going brunette I messaged my hair dresser, Michelle, of about 20 years and asked whether it was a good plan and she encouraged me to go buy the dark brown casting creme gloss by L’oreal as it’s semi-permanent and it keeps your hair in good condition. Whilst in Newcastle I popped into Asda and it was on offer £5 per box I needed two.

I returned to Leeds after the weekend away and ensured I completed a patch test ready for the next weekend when I was heading back home to Grimsby/Cleethorpes. Saturday 17th I rocked up at 4pm to my hairdressers; boiling in the heatwave, boxes in hand and she applied it for me (if i did it myself it would be patchy -i’m not good). 1 hour later the transformation was complete!

The colour had taken better than either of us imagined it would have done and it was pretty much black – being-semi permanent it is now a super dark brown after a few washes.  But I love the change. My blue eyes stand out more with dark hair. I couldn’t recommend the L’oreal Casting Creme Gloss more, my hair is still in amazing condition and although the colour went black at first it is now a dark brown as stated on the box!
