BYE BYE REDHAIR, HELLO GREYHAIR

Most of you would have known that four years ago I started bleaching and dying my hair. From orange to blonde to platinum to pink to ginger and red for the past two years.
Finally it has faded to a pinkish copper red color. Because for the past five months I didn’t really maintain it.
Before any of you decide to go red, please know that it’s not easy to maintain.
After weeks of consideration, today I’ve finally got rid of my red hair.
Before the whole thing started #nofilter
1st step: Bleaching to get red of the red tone.
I had to bleach twice and the whole process took two hours.
Because my hair has been bleached and it’s very damage. So my stylist took extra care.
It wasn’t just to remove the Reds but also to even it out and make sure the colouring later would be toned out nicely too.
Second round bleaching
By the time he was done after two hours. This was the result.
Puffy, damaged bleached hair.
Colouring starts and it was a two tone colouring. The whole application process was 30 minutes
Washing the colors
Finally, after 7 hours
Yes I’m really liking my new hair color. Although I’m still trying to get use to the new color and the “no-bright” or red/ginger hair anymore.

SNOW QUEEN FOR THE DAY - MY VERSION

Woke up today and as usual, I go through Instagram. And saw a evil queen makeup contest by GSC collaborated with the new upcoming movie – The huntsman: winter war.
The trailer is amazing and I can’t wait to watch it! The first huntsman was so good!! So I was sitting there contemplating and H told me to go for it.
So I got up, washed my face and prep with skincare and base.
Decided to go for the snow queen look. #shadesofblue
Searched for some inspiration. Had to improvise with whatever I have
So I started of with my eyes and foundation. I didn’t have a white or fairer foundation cause my usual shade is the lightest I can find. Maybe I should invest in face paint. LOL
Then I thought maybe I should add some blues.
But as evil and poisonous I am. Black it is.
Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?
Shameless selfie time
Really liked how my eyes turned out. #vainpot
Okay! Last one. I promise
Removed everything and back to my everyday look.
