Picture of Perfection
There was a time when an unflattering photo could be your secret shame, hidden in a drawer forever. Then along came Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, you name it—and now every double-chinned, shiny face can be immediately broadcast to family, friends, and the world at large. Armed with these expert tips on makeup, hair, and strategic posing, though, you’ll be picture-perfect in no time.
For Planned Pictures
Conceal lightly. A face masked in foundation will look flat and pasty in photos, says Morgen Schick, a beauty expert and the author of Your Makeover ($10, amazon.com). For a more natural effect, use concealer only to hide imperfections (say, redness around your nose) and shadowy areas, both of which may be amplified by the glare of a flash. Not sure where your facial shadows lurk? Look in the mirror while tilting your chin down an inch or two. You’ll probably notice darkness around your eye sockets and the folds that bracket your mouth, under your lip line, and on your chin.
Tap concealer over those areas with your pinkie until the makeup melts into your skin, then use a puff to press a translucent matte powder on your forehead, down the center of your nose, and onto your cheeks and chin. “These areas tend to look greasy when light hits them,” says Schick. Stay away from foundation and powder with sparkly mica. Allover shimmer will just look allover shiny in photos.
Enhance your eyes. To make sure yours pop when the flash does, focus on defining your brows and lash lines. Fill in your brows with a pencil or a powder (taupe if your hair is light, brown if it’s dark). Then intensify your upper lash lines by working liner into the bases of your lashes, says beauty expert Carmindy, the makeup host of TLC’s What Not to Wear. (Skip lining the bottom lashes or your eyes will look closed in.) Follow that with mascara on the upper and lower lashes.
Add some color. Without blush, your face can look pale or washed-out in a photo, even if your skin is naturally dark. Lightly apply a warm rose, pink, peach, or coral to the apples of your cheeks, starting from the point below your irises and working out to your temples. (Don’t go any closer to your nose, as this can make your eyes appear close-set.) Keep the blush sheer (think of creating a watercolor effect), so the look is romantic, not Raggedy Ann.
Thank you Stacey Colino for the great tips !!!
Another thing to keep in mind UNTAMED can take care of the holiday party stress, Helping you look your best is our specialty !!!!!
The main trick to finding the right hair color is to complement, not match, your skin’s undertones. Here’s a crash course on the 3 basic shades of undertones, along with recommended hair colors for each:
Hair shades: Intense browns, reds or blonds work well for the base color. Pick golden, ash or honey highlights for contrast.
Hair shades: Above all, avoid bright red tones. Don’t over-process your hair or go too blond or too dark. Ask your hair colorist for a honey brown or a golden base color. Add caramel lowlights to give your hair a sun-kissed appearance and make your skin appear less red.
Hair shades: Avoid a yellow or golden hair color, which will make your skin look sallow. Instead, use a deep, rich base color like intense dark chocolate, chestnut, mahogany, or auburn.
Ask your stylist for highlights in shades of cinnamon, red, burgundy, or dark copper, which will help neutralize the yellow in your skin.

Why is it important to keep hair hydrated?
Hydration is necessary to preserve the hairs natural protein/water balance. By keeping hair hydrated you are insuring that the hair retains its shine, softness and manageability.
Dry hair goes through a dehydration cycle. It absorbs moisture easily but then releases it too quickly. Without proper treatment, hair becomes more fragile and dryer over time.
Is hydration important for all hair types?
Harsh shampoos, improper diet, lack of protection from the sun and heat damage from thermal styling appliances can make hair dry, rough and brittle regardless of the hair type. Such examples of cuticle damage weaken the structure of the hair and allow valuable moisture to be lost. This loss of moisture will result in the hair appearing dull, lifeless and without shine. Hair in this state also loses elasticity and quickly becomes difficult to manage.
How much of an affect does the weather have on the condition of our hair?
Climatic conditions affect hair greatly. The hair is essentially made up of the same chemical composition as the skin and nails. Sun damage is a major risk for hair as is exposure to harsh elements like wind.
The change of seasons can play havoc with our hair – should we change our hair care routine as we move into autumn?
Seasonal change brings about a change in environment; such changes impact the condition of our hair. Summer hair often requires protection from sun, salt and hot drying winds, whereas when the weather cools the hair is exposed to more indoor factors like artificial heating devices and more exposure to artificial lighting.
A good haircare routine will be flexible and will incorporate products to enable every head of hair to meet the new challenges provided by the changing seasons
What are your top tips for keeping hair hydrated this autumn season?
After months of summer sun the best way to treat your hair before the chill of autumn sets in is to indulge your hair with a Rainforest Bath treatment service. Inspired by the rainforest’s ever replenishing moisture cycle, Rainforest Bath Service provides 4 layers of care to restore optimal moisture levels, exceptional softness and shine to dry, dull environmentally stressed hair.
