Add Some Color – with Fudge!

I’m bored with my hair.  Monthly, my stylist makes my drab brown hair shine with rich mahogany hues and lovely caramel highlights. But more than once we’ve considered just a streak of something crazy.  Pink? Red?  Why not?

Thoroughly embraced by alternative culture, and worn proudly by several of our edgier celebrities, bright hair colors are slowly reaching a whole new level of acceptability. Whether you’re ready to dive in with all over color, or you’re only tempted to get one small streak of pink, we at Beauty of a Site say, “Go for it.”  In fact, we’ll hook you up with the perfect product.

Fudge Paintbox Hair Dye comes in 12 rad colors, with a semi-permanent formula designed to last up to 4o washes.  A great way to test out something edgy, each Paintbox color is 25% off for the month of March, making your experiment safe for your hair and safe for your wallet!

Perfect Party Panashe: NYE!

As we’re running around finishing up our perfect New Year’s Eve look for tonight (nothing like shopping at the office!), we thought you might enjoy hearing about what we used to get the look!  We loved sparkly pinks, silvers and dark matte greys to build the perfect New Year’s Eve glam!

For Nails: From the OPI Burlesque Holiday Collection, we chose Sparkle-icious.  One of the six glitters (not shimmers, but glitters), this shade is multi colored (that’s right… it matches everything) and adds just the right glitz to our get up.

For Skin: To get the perfect pink glow, we skipped bronzer and used classic pink blush (Bed Head has a perfect selection), coupled with all over shimmer powder.  We concentrated the shimmer along cheek bones and even under the brow line for maximum impact.  We got the best results using Bed Head’s Shake It Loose Powder in Shimmer.

For Eyes: Natural mineral shadow, like the Orglamix Pure Mineral Eye Color adds the perfect natural sheen, while being easily blended and applied for intricate looks.  We thought the Twilight eye color kit was absolutely perfect, because it used the playful pink we love with darker grey tones and white highlights.

* Pro Tip: Use the eye color kit picture on the website as a guide to blending and applying the three shades.

For Lips:  Shimmering natural lips seemed perfect for the occasion, so we chose DuWop’s Lip Venom to gloss and accentuate our natural lip color to the perfect kissable pink.  DuWop’s Pink Shimmer Lip Venom gave us both the perfect pink tint and subtle sparkle that was essential for our NYE theme.

* Pro Tip: Never accentuate both eyes and lips on one night.  If your eyes are dark and dramatic, let naturally toned lips do the kissing.  Or, if you’re sporting bright red lip stick, keep the eyes simple.  Choose where you want the focus to stay!

Fresh Make-Up for Your Summer Fling

Summer MakeUp and CosmeticsFreshen up your cosmetics bag with bright new colors for the summer season.  We’ve seen marigold yellows and chartreuses and limes in our nail polish palettes, and a with little skill, those same colors can be used with makeup to create a truly unique and beautiful look.  Here are our tips for this light and summery look:

1.  Shiney Pink Lips:  Drawing together all these bright colors is a classic, cool pink lip gloss.  Almost any shade of pink will do, but our very favorite for the job is DuWop’s Pink Shimmer Lip Venom. The plump lips will draw attention to your traditional feminine curves in offset of your non-traditional color scheme.

2.  Yellow / Lime Eyes:  As strange as it may sound, especially girls with dark hair can beautifully sport these bright summer colors.  Apply lightly all over lid and under eyebrows, adding sparkly white at the inside corner of your eye.  We suggest Bed Head’s Cyberoptics Eyeshadow in Lime.

3.  Pink Cheeks:  Set aside your orange-y bronzer for this colorful look.  Choose a classic pink to match your gloss! The Orglamix Pure Mineral Blush has the perfect consistency and shimmer for this light and airy summery pink.  We think the Pink Pepper color would be perfect.

4.  Flawless Complexion:  To keep attention on the vibrant colors, a flawless complexion is absolutely necessary for a carefree summer.  Find a light-reflecting, moisture rich tinted moisturizer that will even out your complexion without the added weight of thick foundation.  Our very favorite tinted moisturizer is Urban Apothecary’s Supernatural Mineral Sheer Tint.  It’s soft weight and beautiful luminosity is perfect for summer.

OPI Pink Softshades 2010: Think Pink

Just this week, we’ve received OPI’s newest collection, the Pink Softshades 2010.  Every year around this time, OPI sends us some reinventions of classic pastels to help us celebrate the new season.  This year, they thought pink.

OPI Pink Soft Shades 2010
From left to right, meet OPI’s new and lovely ladies: Is Not that Precious?, Pink-a-Doodle, I Think in Pink and It’s a Girl.  Each shade celebrates part of the giggling, fun-loving, sugar-spice-and-everything-nice culture.  With two slightly sheerer and soft pinks alongside bolder, flirtier shades, 2010’s pinks are classic, energetic and a wonderful way to celebrate all that you love this season.  OPI calls their collection, “Perfectly innocent. Innocently provacative.” That’s right ladies!

And just in time for fun gifts and Easter baskets, the new shades come in a cute gift set including mini sizes of all the colors.  Whether you need to surprise a pink-lover in your life or can’t decide which color to try first, the OPI Pink Mini Nail Lacquer set brings a smile to any girlie-girl’s face.
