Which Scissor is Right for You?

Which Scissor is Right for You?

It can be a daunting process choosing a new pair of scissors with so much choice. Price reflects the material used to construct the scissor and craftsmanship. The quality of the steel also dictates how long your shears will perform well without needing to be serviced. Scissors featuring Japanese steel blades are considered to be some of the best equipment available for stylists today.

How To Choose The Perfect Foundation

How To Choose The Perfect Foundation

  Foundation is personal, which is why Bodyography have developed four unique formulas for you to choose from that compliment an array of skin types and tones.  The following characteristics can break down foundation: Foundation Type:  Foundation Finish: Foundation Coverage:  Liquid Matte Light Powder Demi-Matte Medium Stick  Satin Full Cream Velvet Natural Dewy   Once you know what you are looking for as far as foundation goes, it is essential to be cautious when choosing the correct shade. Be sure to match your foundation to exposed skin, like your neck - we recommend drawing a stripe from jawline to neck with your chosen shade and blending to see if it is a seamless transition. If you're buying foundation online, it is helpful to know the undertone of your skin (warm, cool, neutral) that can guide you when picking the correct shade. You should be able to find a perfect match, but if not,...

Prolonging Your Fake Tan

Prolonging Your Fake Tan

We can’t deny the fact that we would love to stay perfectly bronzed forever. But, the reality is that even the best fake tan (both real and fakes) can fade. Luckily, we have a few handy tips up our sleeve that can help ensure that your fake tan lasts as long as possible. Pre-Tanning Preparation You have to prep your skin beforehand; a fake tan is only as good as the canvas you begin with. Make sure you exfoliate your skin with an oil-free scrub to remove dead skin cells. If these dead skin cells aren’t removed, the application of your fake tan can be a lot less smooth and the fake tan will end up looking uneven. For the perfect canvas, we recommend: Moroccan Tan Skin Refining Primer Perform Hair Removal Prior To TanningIf you aim to do your hair removal a day before, your legs will have time to recover...
