Dying My Hair & FOTD

Normally in the Spring/Summer I go blonde and then brown again (my natural colour) in Autumn/Winter so as the summer is pretty much over in the UK I thought it was a good time to go brown. I remembered I had this hairdye in the back of my cupboard. I got it in the reduced section in Tesco around April time for £1.44. Brilliant!

I found this dye very easy to use. It came with a separate nozzle top to make it easy to apply to the different sections of my hair. It claimed to be non drip, although I did find one drip on the back of my neck. However, it's not too runny a substance so it didn't matter.

I also think the final colour is gorgeous, with a golden shimmer, but that could be because of the blonde colour it was before. I left it on for about 40 minutes, which is longer than the packet said but I've been using dyes for quite a while now and know that the colour is fuller when it is left on longer. I then left the colour conditioner on for 10 minutes as well to nourish my hair.

Here is the after shot:


I'll also let you know what make up I have on.

No.7 Mineral Perfection Foundation
No.7 Perfect Light Pressed Powder
No.7 Cheek Tint

EYES

I love bright colours on my eyes! I was going to use my new Sapphire liquid eyeliner on my upper lashline, but I decided against it once I'd lined my lower waterline because there was already enough pop!! What do you think?
