I'm very proud of being a natural blonde (though it comes with so many negative connotations) however ever since playing Dead or Alive 2 I've always wanted to have pink / lilac hair like Ayane.
Naturally then I was so excited to see that Schwarzkopf now offer a Live Color XXL Ultra Brights range in Electric Blue, Shocking Pink, Pillar Box Red, Purple Punk, Raspberry Rebel and Fiery Copper. I've sort of dabbled with hair dyes bought over the Internet before but always been a little wary / unsatisfied with using a brand I'd never heard of before. Seeing that such a trusted brand was now offering semi-permanent unnatural colour dyes and that I am always so envious of people like Popi Atom and the girls who appear on Tokyo Fashion News I thought I'd try again!
Here are my Grimes-esque blonde-pink ombre braid results:
Earmuffs - Claire's
Button hair bands - a gift from a birthday party I went to back in the 90s
Glasses - Vogue (they use UV reactive lenses so double as sunglasses)
Vest - Pull and Bear
To get pink eyelashes I used Boot's No 7 Extreme Length Waterproof mascara in 'brown/black' on my top and bottom lashes then went over the top lashes with Barry M's Shocking Pink Lengthening Mascara. If you are going to use the Barry M mascara over another mascara I recommend applying a lot as it has a tendency not to show up. It applies better to lashes without any other mascara on however I've found coloured mascara doesn't show up on pale skin unless you use dark a base coat. People with darker skin shouldn't find this a problem though!
To carry the pink motif through I used Rimmel's blush in 'Pink Rose', Rimmel's 1000 Kisses lip tint in 'Timeless Tango' and went over the top with Boot's Natural Collection Sheer Natural Lip Colour in 'Sorbet'.
If you could dye your hair any colour which would you choose?
