What I Used:
FACE
The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream

Mac Select Coverup Concealer NW 35 mixed with MUFE #10 Full Cover Concealer
Mac Medium Dark MSF Natural Powder
Mac Espresso Eyeshadow (Eyebrows)

YSL Fetish Pink Lipstick (This may seem neon pink when applied on the lips to most people but if you use a neutral/muted pink lipliner....it should tone it down and look GORGEOUS!) Mac Pink Nouvea lipstick may be a dupe. Click here to see comparison.

 Funny thing, I didn't realize my tshirt had a picture of a bow and I had also worn a bow (frm H&M) when I took the pics...lol I literally saw them both when I uploaded the pictures...then I totally felt like Hello Kitty! (Maybe I dressed up too early for Halloween?...Haha)
So I guess I have different skintones in all of my pictures...lol oh well. I like playing around with the different functions on each cam...so I'm still learning! My skin has been acting up lately. It's mainly because I havn't been regular with my skincare routine. Lazy Me!

Yesterday, I finally purchased a domain for my blog. I know...why did I delay it for this long? I have no idea...so it's now www.xinarox.com

INOA Revolutionary Red Hair Transformation Contest Entry by L'Oreal Professional Canada

4 comments
I was contacted by Matchstick a while back for the L'Oreal INOA Redhair Transformation Contest. I had to team up with hairstylists to create an entry. We had to use specific red/copper colours to create the final result. So once we had the transformation done....how do we win and what?

The hairstylists must submit their entry on Facebook and the highest number of votes (likes) will be the winner. The winning team will be featured in ELLE Canada magazine. 

So what's in it for the voters? Well...the more you vote the more chances of winning....

L'Oreal INOA Hair Colour Services for a year (value of $1,000)

This is Our Entry:
 
 Haha...just look at my Before shot....really does seem like true "Before" picture! (greasy looking hair...not smiling...all moody looking)

I would love to have your votes and support! So how can you vote? 
Just simply go on Facebook...you must first LIKE L'Oreal Professional Canada/ELLE Canada
Once, you are on their page....click VOTE for your Favourite Transformation.
Then, find my entry and vote/like along with your information to win the draw.  
Please vote daily so you have more chances of wining!

It wasn't great that the voting started way ahead of when we posted our entry. They should have administered the contest better and made it fair so that voting started all at the sametime...OH WELL!


More Info on my Red Hair Transformation:

I teamed up with Vanessa Vitali & Christine White at....
Salon Daniel Spa
 3391 Bloor St. West/Islington Ave in Toronto Tel. (416)-231-6900
Bonus: If you say my name, ZERIN...you can get 15% off any hair service.

So what was the Hair Colour Formula? You can go to any L'Oreal Professional Hair Salon and ask for this. 5.60 base color with 7.40 (intense copper) faceframing thin highlights. 

My team colour stylists chose 5.60 (red) from the Inoa base shade and 7.45 (copper) Inoa for a face brightening highlights which were at the front. The back to back Sweet Meches panels were placed in a half-hexagon placement from the top to the sides of the hair, framing the face only to achieve the thin copper highlights. Also, keep in mind my hair level before was 6-7.

Here's Vanessa just starting to blow dry my hair and then once dry....she applied velcro rollers around the frame of my face and then used bobby pins to make clip on rolls for the rest of my hair.
 Here's Christine and Vanessa....styling out the hair!
 Still Stylin'

My make-up wasn't really well done on that day since I had to rush  and I didn't know we were going to take final shot pictures on the same day since we kinda scheduled it for later. Anyways, so I had to improvise somehow. Wish I had better make-up on that day. =( My lips needed some colour.

A Super Quick Hair Update: Officially a Redhead!

24 comments
I just couldn't wait to post this update about my hair colour. It's actually for a contest entry. I got it done today at a salon and I will update you guys with more info on this red hair madness soon....lol  =P

I had coloured my hair red back in 2007 so this is a change for me. =D I'm quite happy with the results.

Reds do not last long as they tend to fade faster...so I'll enjoy this while it lasts.

I took these pics at the end of the day (around 11:30pm)....so I'm pretty bummed out. I'll have better pics later on.

Lorac Snake Charmer & Mac Diva Lips FOTD

16 comments
I did this look earlier this week  I do not wear dark bold lips often and so I wanted to try out Mac Diva lipstick this time. It's also quite suitable for the fall season. I also have a hard time capturing neutral eyeshadow looks on my camera since it ends up looking washed out. Oh well. =(
What I Used:
FACE
The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream
Smashbox Primer
Mac Pro Longwear Foundation NW 35 mixed it with some MUFE HD Foundation # 155 (to give some more warm yellow tones)
Mac Select Coverup Concealer NW 35 & MUFE #10 Full Cover Concealer (Mixed)
Mac Medium Dark MSF Natural Powder
Mac Espresso Eyeshadow (Eyebrows)

EYES
Urban Decay Primer Potion (Eye Primer)
Lorac Snake Charmer Palette (Eyes)
NYC Lashes
Fresh Look ColorBlends Contacts in Grey
Maybelline Mascara

CHEEKS
Mac Blunt Blush (As Contour)
Lorac Snake Charmer Palette  (Cheeks)

 
LIPS
Mac Beet Lipliner
Mac Diva Lipstick
No Flash
With DSLR

BTW....I toned down my hair a bit with the ION hair colour I bought recently. It was a medium golden brown colour. I did my roots with it (30 vol mixed and left in for 20minutes) and then made a toner with medium golden brown and a little ashblonde (10 vol) and left it on for less than 5minutes or so. I didn't want my highlights to go away entirely so I washed the colour out sooner. I just wanted my hair to be slightly darker than before.
