Ombre hair, balayage hair and dip dyed hair are
3 different hair techniques. Though they can look similar and are all beautiful
they are all very different.
Hair: Ombre is when your hair strand go from dark at
the root gradually lightening and fading to a lighter color at the ends of the
hair. Here are some examples;
BalayageHair: Balayage is the French meaning
"to sweep". In balayage the colorist
is “sweeping/painting” the color vertically with the tip of the brush and only
to the front of the hair. This gives a
natural, sun kissed highlighted look.
Here are some examples;
Dye Hair: Dip Dye is just that, it looks like you have
dipped the ends of your hair in color and it creates a rather bold contrast
between your natural hair color to the ends of your hair. Here are some examples;
These are all great looks you just need to find
what would best suite you and your life style. Balayage is probably the lowest
maintenance of the 3 but they are all not overly high maintenance.
I strongly suggest going to a reputable salon to
get any of these techniques done because it is your hair after all! These are not
the easiest techniques to do at home.
Let me know if you have any questions or
suggestions! Happy dyeing!

Some of my favorite products I used that day
1. MAC Lipglass in C-Thru,
gives a nice natural glossy look that I love. It can be worn alone or layered
with other glosses or lipsticks. I think it photographs beautifully.
2. MAC Eye shadow in Naked Lunch, I love how this shadow looks great on almost every skin tone. I like how it instantly brightens up the eye. It is great for weddings when you want a more natural look and a great everyday eye shadow. Again it looks great alone and is a great base if you want to layer other shadows.
3.NARs Highlighter in Nico gives a nice natural glow which is great for weddings and day to day. I do like NARs Highlighter in Albatross but it can sometimes be a bit more intense, it does give a more glamorous look that I love but not every bride wants that.
4. MAC Plushglass in Fulfilled, though it looks orange in this photo it actually goes on clear and gives your lips a nice natural plump without the super
sting other lip plumpers can give. Again
it is looks nice alone or layered with other lip products. It is also not as
sticky as MAC Lipglass that is why I usually mix my Lipglass with Plushglass.
5. NARs blush in Deep Throat, I love this peachy shimmery blush. I do love and use Torrid and Orgasm but I find Deep
Throat to be a nice in between. It also looks great on a lot of different skin
Thank you so much for following along, I hope
you like some of these product suggestions.
Katelyn’s wedding was beautiful shades of pink
and blush, I love the color she chose for her bridesmaid’s dresses and the gorgeous
flowers by Country
Lane Floral Design the beautiful photos were taken by my sister Erin

Since Katelyn’s colors were soft pinks and
blushes these are some of the products I used on the girls, these colors tend
to work well on most skin types.
