SALON AND STYLE BAR
MAKEUP by Cynthia SKIN: I began by prepping Brittney’s skin with Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentrè, followed by MAC Studio Fix Fluid which gives a matte finish. Next I used MAC Mineralized Skin Finish in Medium to set all over the face as well as give the skin a nice sun-kissed glow, followed by Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit in the shade Java. I applied MAC blush in Peaches and Blush Baby for just the right amount of color. Then I finished the cheeks off with my favorite highlighter by MAC in Soft and Gentle. EYES: For a soft smokey eye I began by priming her eyes with Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. I then used a few MAC shadows, starting with Blanc Type all over the lid. For the outer corner I used Cork, Soft Brown for transition, Swiss Chocolate on the middle of the lid for more depth, and Naked Lunch on the inner corner for pop of shimmer. Lastly, on the bottom lashline I used Espresso. I wanted a nice bold liner so I used MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy and finished with Ardell #110 lashes stacked. LIPS: For a bold lip to tie in the whole look I used MAC Taupe lipstick and Stripdown lipliner topped off with NYX Butter Gloss in Crème Brulee.
HAIR by Krysta
This look is a little more challenging then the average braided hairstyle. I started out by prepping Brittney’s hair with some loose beachy curls and spraying it with Davines Sea Salt Spray. Then from each side of the part I started a fishtail braid, connecting them in the back with a rubber band. I continued braiding the hair, in the rubber band this time, using a twisted fishtail technique. About every three inches I rubber banded the hair and started the braid again, braiding all the way to the end of her hair. To hide each rubber band I took a small piece of hair and wrapped it around the band, securing with a bobby pin. After that braid was done I sprinkled Kevin Murphy Powder Puff Volumising Powder throughout her hair. Then on each side I did loose Dutch braids all the way to the ends. I secured the two Dutch braids together in the back with a rubber band, again hiding it with a piece of hair. After all the braids were secure I sprayed Davines Sea Salt Spray. over all of it and gently pulled the braids apart to make them appear thicker. In the middle where the braids separate I used hair pins to connect them together — making it look like one solid braid. I then laid the twisted fishtail over the top of the connected Dutch braids and lightly pulled those pieces apart as well. I used a few hair pins to secure it all together! To finish it off I pulled a few pieces out in front and sprayed everything with Davines strong hold hair spray and some Kevin Murphy Shimmer Shine! A sea salt spray and a volumising powder are a must to get these beachy braided looks! For appointments call Carlyle Salon & Style Bar
