Just this Monday, I finally took that leap: I had about half the length of my hair lopped off.
There are two reasons for the change. The first is that it’s been five months since I gave birth and hello, hormonal changes! My hair has been shedding like crazy! Second, I realised that getting my hair coloured in the balayage technique is too time consuming at the moment. And so, I will wait.
Oh there is a third reason. My son has been pulling at my hair. It’s that phase.
So, shorter hair it is.
And just because I’m that kind of geek, here’s a shot with makeup on:
I guess I have a favoured side after all but truthfully, the reason I chose this angle is the lighting. Had I faced the other way, my face would have been in full shadow.
This was a very quick, random selfie shoot so I didn’t do much to prepare. That said, here’s what I used:
- Human Nature Powder Blush in Sun-kissed
- NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Morocco
- Etude House Look at My Eyes Cafe in (X) (for my brows)
- Bad Girl (gold) and Ultramatte V2 (black) from the Sleek Showstoppers eyeshadow palette
Not bad for a really quick “shoot” though I could have done my eyebrows better. I guess I need to practice more, eh?
