Jamie Chung Metallic Mani

jamie_chungStep 1: Paint two coats of FingerPaints in Chromatic Creation, and let completely dry.

Step 2: Apply tape along a diagonal, blocking off a small section at the bed of the nail. Paint with FingerPaints in Paper Maiche, and quickly remove the tape. Allow to dry before moving on to Step 3.

Step 3: Going the opposite direction, tape off a small section at the bed of the nail and paint with FingerPaints in Black Expressionism. Remove the tape and seal with a top coat.

1. For cleansing, pick a product that is gentle on your fragile tresses and adds much-needed moisture. A product like Biotera PRO Series Damage Care Shampoo can help hair become up to 2X more resistant to breakage when used with the whole system.

2. Before combing through wet hair, always spray on a bit of leave-in conditioner like Ion Miracle Leave-In Conditioner. It will help detangle locks, prevent breakage and protect during heat styling. Screen Shot 2015-06-29 at 12.59.20 PM

3. A few times a week treat hair to a deep treatment while in the shower, or by sleeping with it on overnight (Use a shower cap!).

The Brow Guide

It is 2015 ladies, and bold brows are taking over the streets of the beauty and fashion world. Thick, thin, narrow or wide – whatever you have, wear them proud!

If you are anything like me, I can’t trust just anyone with my eyebrows. Too many times have they been stripped of their full Italian glory into a thin pencil line….no thank you!

The trick is to find the perfect brow for your particular face shape. Every shape has a correlating eyebrow that complements your face structure best. After finding a great brow guide on Pinterest, I was able to structure my eyebrows to better frame my face, and still keep my beloved thickness.

But don’t stop there! Along with everyday maintenance, the real brow magic happens when you use product to fill in and define your shape. Think of it like the icing on the cake. Whether it be brow powder, brow gel, brow pencil or brow pomade, the right product can make all the difference. See below for suggested maintenance and product for your type:

Tips to Make your Color POP

The secret to getting bright and beautiful color is all about the prep step and layering products. Keep scrolling to see our favorite tips to make your color POP!

1. Neon nail polish can be tricky to work with, and it’s so disappointing when it’s not as bright on the nail as it is on in the bottle. The solution? Start with a base of white nail polish BEFORE you apply the neon color. It will make the finish smooth, opaque and super bright.

2. Wanting to make a statement with your shadow? Dip your brush into water before you swirl it on the palette. Applying your shadow when it’s wet will make it vibrant. Try this trick with baked eye shadow for really impressive results.

3. To make your colorful eyeliner stand out, first line your eyes with white eyeliner and then add your final shade on top of that base.

4. Instagram is full of trendsetters with crazy and fun rainbow-colored hair, and they all get their color that bright by pre-lightening to the level specified on the box. This will give your hair shaft more grip so the color stays put, and gives you true-to-the-package contemporary color

How to: Seaside Strands

143387_JuneTutorialBlogUS_BLOG_strands

  1. Begin by prepping hair with Ion Summer Miracle Spray to smooth and protect.
  2.  Working with 1” to 1.5” pieces, twist hair and wrap around Jilbere Nano Silver Jumbo Taper Iron, leaving the ends free. Allow strands to cool before moving on to the next step.
  3. Lightly mist Beyond the Zone Beach Head Surf Shake Sea Salt Texturizing Spray to give it that just-out-of-the-ocean look and feel. Tousle with fingers to work in the spray and separate strands.
  4. Add a fishtail braid along one side of hair to up the mermaid factor. Be sure to pinch and pull sides along the entire length of the braid to loosen and widen it. You don’t want it to look too perfect!
