Get The Look: Tatiana
Tatianna's color was previously over-highlighted and had lost dimension. Due to this, her hair was delicate, so we wanted to pay special attention to the health and care of her hair throughout the color process.
To get the look, we low-lighted using Matrix Socolor Sync Pre-Bonded Alkaline Toner in equal part 8P, 8G, and 8WN. Using pivoting pie sections from her part line and a medium weave to create the perfect blend of depth and dimension.
*Pro-tip: To return depth to blondes, be sure to include gold in your formula to avoid muddy/hollow results. When applying your lowlight, alternate leaving the ends out of every other foil to ensure that you maintain brightness in the blonde.
Tatianna had a preexisting haircut that we wanted to strengthen. We cleaned up the perimeter to create a strong graphic shape with her haircut. She has fine hair so we wanted to still encourage a little bit of movement by creating softer face framing that blended into her fringe.
With too much bounce, the length of Tatianna's hair can easily look dated. However, natural-looking volume is essential when creating sleek styles on fine hair.
- To get the look, Bumble&Bumble Thickening Spray was applied on damp hair from roots to ends and then we layered Thickening Full Form Soft Mousse.
- Hair was rough dried to 100% before smoothing out with a boar bristle round brush.
- Each section was over-directed to create maximum volume at the roots and set on velcro rollers. After setting, the hair was dropped down and flat ironed.
- To create the illusion of fullness we added single-piece clip-in hair extensions on both sides.
Start by moisturizing the face, with a fluffy dense brush. Apply all over skin to create a smooth base for your makeup.

Apply NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer under your eyes, chin, around the nose and center of the for head. For a great match, choose a color a few shades lighter than your natural tone for a well lit look. Dab it gently with your fingertips or a blending brush for a natural look.
Apply the Fenty Beauty Cream Contour Stick around the perimeter of your face to frame and contour, using an angled fluffy brush To strategically place the color on your cheek forehead and chin.

First prime your lids using NYX Eye Paint in Coming Out. Then, use a flat firm fluffy brush to blend. Place Belle from the Natasha Denona Retro Glam Eyeshadow Palette just in the crease outward and upward with a fluffy blending brush.
Apply NYX Eye Paint in Fly the Flag just on the lid and in the inner corner of the eye with a flat eyeshadow brush. Be very generous and carefree with it.
Then layer that with Flutter from the Natasha Denona Retro Glam Eyeshadow Palette, with your finger to really pack it on, and to avoid fallouts.
Use the MAC White Liner pencil just on the waterline, and place mascara top and bottom and be very generous.
Apply a full strip of Ardell Wispies 113 to the lash on top and 3 individuals in the bottom to create that flirty butterfly effect. Then, use the Ulta Beauty Micro Felt Tip Liquid Liner to create a dramatic wing out liner.
