The Art Of Hair Shadowing
Hair Shadowing is the temporary method of coloring your hair using powder or cream eye shadows. I started doing this method a few years ago after trying hair chalk and becoming discouraged at how easy it rubbed off and how it only would last one day. As a result of that I started to experiment with different eye shadows in my hair and soon discovered that maybelline color tattoo was the best cream eye shadow to use because the colors were really bold and vivid and the color would last me up to an entire week. After using the maybelline color tattoo for awhile and realizing that the color selection was very limited, I moved on to the maybelline dream bouncy blush which works just as good as the color tattoo if not better. And it opened me up to a new selection of colors. From there I started to mix products. Like using both hair chalk and eye shadow to achieve custom colors. Then I was sent a set of Alex Hair Chalk Pens which are a lot like cream eye shadow in stick form. These work just as well as cream eye shadow and opens up a new pallet of colors as well. After I used the Alex hair chalk pens it inspired me to experiment with chubby lipstick pens in my hair considering that they were made almost exactly like the hair chalk pens are. I now dub it Hair Sticking and once again more colors are introduced. So to temporarily color your hair you can use hair chalk, powder eyeshadow and blushes, cream eye shadows and blushes, alex hair chalk pens, chubby lipsticks and lipstick. It is best to set every one of these methods with a blow dryer and remember creams will always last longer than powder.
