Thicken your hair in seconds with this wonder product. Also a must have Kit product for Hair & Make-up Artists!

I was contacted by a company called KeraFiber, which has recently launched in the UK (although they have been very successful in the USA for years).Thicken Hair, Thinning Hair, Makeup Artist, Hair Dresser, Keratin, Hair, Protein, Kerafiber, Must have

In case you haven’t heard of the product yet, let me tell you, it is genius! It is made from natural keratin  protein fibres, which is the same protein your hair is made out of, making it virtually undetectable once applied, unlike similar talc/powder based powders.

Thicken Hair, Thinning Hair, Makeup Artist, Hair Dresser, Keratin, Hair, Protein, Kerafiber, Must haveFor me this product has two great benefits and uses. The first is on a personal level as a few months back, out of nowhere, I started losing my hair. I have lost about 40% of my hair, making it noticeably thin. I already had fine hair so when I started losing it, it really wasn’t easy to hide. I was sent KeraFiber in black to try out. To be honest when I first tapped some of the powder out on my hand, my first impression was that it was so fine and I couldn’t see it making much difference. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. It definitely made a big difference. My only issue was that I needed to put quite a bit on to notice a big difference, but at the same time, the protein fibres are so small that it isn’t noticeable that I have a lot of powder on my hair.

I was also sent the grey colour to try out on some of my clients and family etc. It Thicken Hair, Thinning Hair, Makeup Artist, Hair Dresser, Keratin, Hair, Protein, Kerafiber, Must havedid make a difference and the hair appeared much fuller and thicker. My only issue with the grey is that it is more difficult to get a realistic colour. I think you would need to mix the grey with another colour to get it to suit and look natural, but still very effective.

If you are worried about thinning hair it is definitely worth giving the product a try. The bottles of KeraFiber come in two sizes 12g (£19.95) and 28g (£29.95). It comes in 9 different colours. Follow up with the KeraFiber Hair Spray (£5.95) which is designed to increase the bond between the hair  and the fibers.

Apart from personal use, I find this a really great product to use for work. In Theatre and Film, I constantly have to make cast members appear either older or younger. I have used some different coloured hairsprays designed to age cast members. But they can look very false and you also have to be very careful if the camera is shooting close up to the person. Then I tried KeraFiber, it can change the colour of the hair while remaining totally natural looking and because of how thin the fibre powder is, it is totally un-detectible to the camera. So if you are a hair / makeup artist, it is definitely worth having a few bottles of this product in your kit box.Thicken Hair, Thinning Hair, Makeup Artist, Hair Dresser, Keratin, Hair, Protein, Kerafiber, Must haveFor a product which has clearly had years of research, I was pleasantly surprised by the price. I was expecting it to be much more expensive.

Rushing out for Rush-Hour

I was wearing one of my long-time hero Benefit Cosmetics products today which I hadnt worn it a while. I dont know why I keep forgetting about it because everytime I wear it, I fall in love with it all over again. So I was going to use it in a MOTD post until I went onto the Benefit website to get the link and price for you when I realised that it has been discontinued! I’m finding out recently that lots of my favourite products are on their way out! I’m totally gutted. I’m extremely sad to see Rush Hour be discontinued. So I checked online and there are a few places have left over stock, which you know I will have to panic buy now!
It’s so disappointing when this happens to products you love! Has it happened to you with certain products? I’d love to hear the products you miss the most.

In the meantime, here is a little tribute shot of me wearing Rush Hour, you can totally see the sadness and disappointment on my face haha.

Makeup of the Day (07/06/14)

My Makeup of the Day is not for the faint-hearted. I was pretty disappointed in how the poor the photos were to be honest. What you can’t see is that the darkest parts of my brow is actually a dark purple glitter gel, so it sparkled when I moved. Anyhooooo, this isn’t my actual makeup I decided to wear today, more of a mess about this morning. I had wanted to try and get some matching Ombre lips done too but ran out of time in between clients.

My brows are a Pink to Purple Ombre and I seriously think I would consider rocking it on a regular day…. so get your sunglasses on Belfast as you may just see me out and about with some neon brows 🙂

To create this whole look I used two products:

Sleek Makeup i-Devine Eyeshadow Palette – Ultra Matte – £7.99

Illamasqua – Sealing Gel – £7.00

Make-up of the Day (05-06-14)

Oh I LOVE playing with new Palettes. This is the second of the two new palettes I bought from the Makeup Pro Store in Belfast. It is my Make-up Atelier Paris and is so versatile.

I woke feeling a little under the weather today so I’m feeling the need to smoke it out a bit. I didn’t sculpt my brows too much today as I am in and out of business meetings all day and don’t want to frighten anyone when up close and personal haha.

I actually used the Eyeshadow Palette to shade my brows a little so they are well matched. I just applied a bit of clear brow gel to my brows first and then used a thin angle brush to shade.

Here is my Make-up of the Day – As per usual, larger images are at the bottom.

Makeup of the Day (02/6/14)

Well today is my ‘Day-Off’ and I don’t have anything very exciting planned except heading out for lunch with my lovely hubbie and doing a bit of shopping for our Summer Holidays (Yippeeeee!)

So in terms of makeup I didn’t want to wear anything to heavy so I opted for a warm subtle smoky eye with some white pencil in the lower waterline to keep it light looking. I didn’t use any illuminators today as when I use the FOM Cosmetics Moisturiser and Hello Flawless Foundation together you get a lovely dewy finish to the skin.

So here you go, here is my makeup look for today. Larger Images and full product listing with links and prices are below.

Make-up of the Day (01/6/14)

I’m off out to see comedienne and top model Diona Doherty in a preview of a new comedy sketch so I opted for a bit of colour on the eye tonight.

This is proof that you don’t necessarily have to spend £50.00 on an eyeshadow palette to create a great look. This eyeshadow palette is available to buy for only £3.99!!! That’s not to say that all drugstore eyeshadow palettes will be great.
