Pastel Pink + Purple Curls
Hello fellow vivid lovers! I am finally posting the results of my pink and purple pastel gradient hair. I chose an angular color placement that I then mirrored in the back. I have medium to dark brown hair naturally so I pre-lightened the roots with Pulpriot Rapid Lift Powder Bleach and 20 volume.
I used all Joico Color Intensity shades for the vivid pastel colors. For the light pastel purple I used True Lav and Mauve Amor for the pastel pink shade. I then transitioned into Pink and Hot Pink shades for an ombre fade and then lastly used Amethyst Purple for the deep violet shade.
To match this new hair color I decided to style my hair using a 1.25" straightening iron and a splash of hair spray. I curled mostly away from the face to create volume and movement.
The makeup is somewhat of a contrast with angular, dark lines, but it also provides emphasis of the underlying pink theme. I used Lime Crime's Venus XL Palette for the eyes along with their Diamond Dew Drops for the halo effect. The lips are NYX soft matte liquid lipstick and the faux freckles were made with Mehron water-based paints.
So what do you guys think? Are we for the pastel candy vibes? Will be posting a ton more updates today and later this week so peep the blog daily! I am so thankful for everyone's support so far and I cannot wait to show you all what 2020 has in store!
