Storing False Lashes For Travel & Reuse

14 Jun

photo 4

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect container to store false lashes I wanted to reuse, as well as something that could hold a lot of lashes for travel, since I’m always flying out of the country. . .

I FOUND IT! I Found it!

The perfect plastic container that can easily fit in a large makeup bag, or even in your purse, and can hold 10 or more pairs of lashes PLUS it even has a compartment for holding lash glue! And I managed to squeeze a second Clear lash Glue bottle in there for individuals. The compartments are even 4 slots wide enough to hold the longer strips of lashes, and then there are a 6 smaller slots to store regulars and halfsies.

I found these re-useable plastic containers in the Nail section at Rite Aid (Walgreens, Walmart, Target, CVS, and other pharmacy/beauty supplies will probably have them too!) This one pictured is by KISS NAILS, and it originally comes stocked with glue on nails and nail glue.

prod_detail_large_9_100PS14-100fullcovernails-shortsquare

I took all the nails and nail glue out and I am now just using the perfect little container to store my lash strips. There was one by Nailene Nails there as well, but it didn’t have the big slot at the top to store the lash glue tube. . . but it can hold more lashes if that’s what you prefer. So I got the container with nails and glue included for only about $6.00 total. I actually used the nails that came with it too, so they didn’t go to waste, but if you don’t need them, and just need the container, it’s so cheap it’s worth it.

I fit about 15 pairs of lashes inside. I had 5 pairs of Whispies style lashes, that I stacked together.  (So the really thick looking ones you see in the container are actually 5 pairs of the right side, and 5 pairs of the left side stacked on top of each other gently).

You can use a label maker if you are really organized to even label your lashes if you wanted to.

Hope this little Beauty Organizing Tip by Sunset Blonde helps you out! It is a great idea also for Pro-Makeup Artists on the go!

CoCo & Cashmere = Gorgeous Hair

💗”Coco & Cashmere”💗 is my hair secret!

COCONUT OIL

is amazing for taming frizz & conditioning hair, plus doubles as a natural and great body moisturizer! Instead of using synthetic serums, try natural coconut oil instead. A little goes a long way! (I’ve written more about coconut oil- click here)

Screen Shot 2013-04-14 at 10.11.18 PM

I’m a huge fan of coconut oil, and have been using it for years, as a body moisturizer, cuticle oil, hair defrizzer, deep conditioner, and facial moisturizer.  I love the spray version that just recently became available at Trader Joes, you can also find it at the regular grocery stores. I use it all over my body after a shower by spraying it on and then rubbing it in, then what is left on my hands after rubbing it on my body, I then smooth it on the ends of my hair. It’s easier to apply and less messy than the solid version, you can even keep it in your shower and spray yourself down after showering! The best part is that it’s all natural, and even edible. Why not put something on your body, that you can also put in it?

Baby Powder as a Dry Shampoo

8 Apr

36599-00_l

 

Baby Powder isn’t just for babies, and is a must have beauty product. There are so many uses for it, but a favorite and most popular beauty secret is to use it as a dry shampoo.  Using baby powder as a dry shampoo on oily/dirty hair is a great solution to absorb oil and refresh your hair.

There are also great alternatives to traditional baby powder that are more natural & talc-free. Baby powder is reasonably priced and it lasts a really long time.

Shake powder out into palm of your hand, rub together in hands and work the powder into the scalp & roots where hair is the most oily. Once applied, work a brush through root to tip to get rid of excess powder and to distribute evenly.

We Recommend: Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Dusting Powder because it is talc free!

Love,

How are Cashmere Hair Extensions different?​

Hair extensions are not just for adding length. You can achieve volume, texture, chemical free color, highlights and color accents all without the use of harsh chemicals. No longer do you have to wait months or even years to have the look and lifestyle you desire.  Cashmere Hair Extensions will give you instant gratification!

webFINAL diagram hair SUPERIOR

Owning a set of Cashmere Hair Extensions, not only saves you THOUSANDS of dollars, but is the easiest and most convenient hair extension system.  Salon applied hair extensions are extremely damaging and over priced. Cashmere Hair Extensions are a one time payment, with the convenience of at home custom application. Cashmere Hair provides the perfect alternative to permanent hair extensions and look even better! This is the ultimate DIY system for even the most inexperienced user, that only takes minutes to put in and seconds to remove. With Cashmere Hair you can have salon quality hair with out spending the time or money. ​​

What is the quality of the hair?

​Cashmere Hair is 100% High Quality Cuticle Human Hair. The hair cuticle is facing in the same direction which prevents tangling and matting. This High Quality Hair allows for better blending with your own hair and gives the appearance of natural, healthy looking hair.

What really makes our hair extensions the BEST is our gentle dying process, which takes up to 9 – 12 days.  Other 2 day processes, which rapidly dye hair using heavy acid and chemicals, cause damage to the hair. This heavy chemical processing causes hair to loose vital moisture and nutrition. Instead, our process of dying is a very slow process which is the least damaging to hair and gives you the healthiest quality hair, allowing your hair extension to look their best longest. We take the quality of our product very seriously, which is why we set ourselves apart from other companies on a completely different level of quality & authenticity. We have our strands laboratory tested and certified to be 100% Cuticle human hair, the highest quality available. ​

Other companies mask the harsh chemical process by using silicone to disguise the bad quality of the hair to make it feel silky when you first purchase it. After a few shampoos you might notice that the coating come off, and true nature of the quality is revealed.​

Will Cashmere Hair Extensions damage my hair and how long my extensions last?​

No damage will occur, and unlike traditional salon extensions. Cashmere Hair Extensions should last you anywhere between 6 to 12 months, with proper care and maintenance. Clip-in Hair Extensions can be reapplied and styled daily. If using a curling iron or flat iron, we recommend first styling your own hair, and then styling the clip-ins similarly before clipping in. Although, we always recommend using the least possible heat styling while getting the most uses out of the hair before rewashing. It is not necessary to wash your extensions after every use. Keep in mind, just like our own hair, any type of heat wears on the hair in time. These tips will save your own hair & extensions from extra unnecessary heat styling damage. ​ Tip: Always try and treat your hair extensions with lots of love!

​Can I dye Cashmere Hair Extensions?

​Cashmere Hair Extensions are made of real hair just like your natural hair. It is always recommended to see one of our trained professional hair stylist or a professional you trust to assist you with any changes that you would like made to your hair extensions.  Please choose the hair extension color that is closest to your natural hair color, we do not recommend dying the hair extensions, since many of them have already been specially dyed. Our goal is to supply you with the best quality hair extensions possible, and we have a very special dying process that keeps the hair in the healthiest condition. Further dying could damage the hair if not done by our professionals.

Will Cashmere Hair Extensions be visible, will people be able to tell I’m wearing them?

​No, Cashmere Clip-in Hair Extensions should not be visible. The beauty of Cashmere Hair Clip-extensions is that they make achieving the look of gorgeous hair naturally. Once fitted they are a perfect blend with your own hair. They provide unlimited versatility with a natural look and feel. Our clip-in system is suggested to be worn low on your head making it easy to disguise and blend with your own hair. Part of the secret of wearing hair extensions is blending your hair extensions into your natural hair for the most discrete & natural look.

​​

Will Cashmere Hair Extensions stay in my hair, without slipping out?

​These hair extensions make having the look of gorgeous hair easy, fast and comfortable. With in minutes you will have the gorgeous hair you’ve always wanted. Specially designed small silicone pressure clips allow these hair extensions to be put in and taken off in just minutes and without the worry of sliding or snapping open. Our hair extensions are undetectable and natural looking when inserted properly. No teasing is necessary prior to clipping into hair for most hair types.

​​​

​Will Cashmere Hair Extensions work with very thin hair?

If you have very thin hair, Cashmere Hair will definitely be the perfect match for your desirable look. Depending on the severity of the thinning of your hair, you will need enough hair to lie over the top weft to cover it. Backcombing the hair above the top weft can help disguise easier. Ideally you would want your hair to be at least 6 inches long for best results.

What is the length of Cashmere Hair Extensions?

​Cashmere Hair Extensions are 18″-20″ long (47cm-49cm). When worn in the recommended application they automatically layer themselves giving you a more natural look. ​

What color do I choose?

​When choosing a color to match your own hair, choose a color that matches your hair from the middle to the ends. Never choose the hair color of your “roots” as that is always darker. The color match blend for your hair will be from your middle length to ends. So choosing a color closest this area of your hair will give you the best results. If your unique hair color is not available in our color chart, the best options is to place a custom order with Cashmere.

Obsessed! My New Monda Studio LED Makeup Case

4 Mar

Obsessed! My New Monda Studio LED Makeup Case

I attended this year’s The Makeup Show LA, and fell in LoVe! This year was my second year attending, so I knew what to expect and came prepared. What I wasn’t prepared for, was my newest obsession, the Monda Studio LED Makeup Case that I bought for a STEAL at the show!! The glistening bright lights that rim the mirror in the top of the case called to me as I walked by them in the Nigel’s booth, and I couldn’t help but stare in awe of this beautiful invention. I had seen lighted makeup cased before, but they were huge, had actual lightbulbs and were over $1000. The price tag was so reasonable on these cases, and the size was absolutely perfect. I first decided that I would get the smallest size, but at the last minute changed my mind to get the medium sized one.

The MSC-810 LED Lighted Mirror Make Up Station is the one I purchased. I comes on wheels, and has a handle to pull like a suitcase when it is closed and upright. It’s a little on the heavy side, but because it’s on wheels it’s manageable.

The best part, for me, are the lights! They work really well and are LED lights, which last a really long time 30-50,000 hours, you don’t need to replace them, and you can even brighten or dim them for the proper lighting effect! These lights also emit a minimal amount of heat and save 80% of the energy that incandescent lights use  It plugs into an outlet, and just press the button to turn them on, and you are ready to go!

For professional makeup artists, this is a great way to get better lighting on the go, and for personal use, the smaller sized ones are perfect for your own personal vanity!

 It comes in 3 Sizes! (mine is the medium size.)
