Not a bad product to use for editorial photography. The product was very translucent and it gave me the ability to reapply for more coverage. So if you are using this product for home use you will like it very much. And it will give you the options on how much coverage you want. Fun to play with.
Lightweight, long-wearing foundation controls oil, leaves a matte finish. The product lasted a whole 3 hours in the early morning sunlight. I had to touch ups to do. Start in center of face and blend outward with Foundation Brush or if you are at home you can use a pad or fingertips. Be careful when using pads they will really soak up your foundation. Blend evenly for smooth, natural-looking coverage. For a seamless look, dampen your brush and blend edges, especially along jawline. And there you go. Follow up with cheek and contour powders and a spray lock so the makeup will not move.
My model had a filming to do on very much short notice and was asked to lighten her hair color. Which was no problem to do since she takes very good care of her hair. I am a Jack Wynn hair-color user for the past 3-4 years. I have used a lot of hair-color lines in my 30 years of being a professional. But as of now I prefer the Jack Wynn hair-color line. In proceeding with the foil highlight I decided to use, Brilliant Lightener.
Brilliant Lightener is a classic lightener made with the highest grade possible of each ingredient. This purity of ingredients is why it’s the first thing hairdressers rave about when they try our products—and why it lifts better than its competitors. Safe on and off the scalp, Brilliant Lightener is excellent for highlighting, global application, and color removal.
I started with foils and did a medium amount, using a textured weave for her hair-coloring. After the full application a timer was set for 30 minutes. I used 20volume and 30 volume developers to get the needed lift I wanted and to be finished at the exact time for all sections. The hair was washed with HydraLock Shampoo and also HydraLock Conditioner by Jack Wynn. There was to need for any extra conditioning. That is why I use this bleach it will leave the hair smooth and undamaged. It is a very good product to use if you are a professional in a salon or doing commercial work.
When lightening the hair it is not always needed to lighten every hair on the head of the client. Unless she wants a double process. I like to leave out hair for a contrast more or less like a beach look. Always take care of your blonde hair, it will pick up color from your tap water and eventually look dull. Stay away from all the purple colored shampoo’s, because there is pigment in the shampoo to also dull your hair-color more. Make a appointment at your salon for a clarifying treatment and that will take all the pigment out of your hair from the tap water and pool water also.
