Take Fine Curly Hair from Flat & Lifeless to Voluminous & Bouncy with Kerastase and shu uemura Art of Hair

I have very fine curly hair. When your hair is fine, and your curls a little lacking, it's easy to end up with flat, fluffy, frizzy, yet lifeless hair. What a horrific mix.

I usually end up anxious to chop off my hair when it gets to any substantial length as the length weighs

Khaki Eyeshadow Collection

My Khaki Eyeshadow Collection with Swatches

Today I am excited to share with you my Khaki Eyeshadow Collection. I was tempted to do bronze, and still will at a later date, but opted instead for one of my favourite fall colours; Khaki. Khaki is described as a dull brownish-yellow but it is much more beautiful than it's description. Shades range from khaki browns, to khaki greens, and even khaki greys. I love the shades because they are a great twist on a neutral, looks great with every eye colour, and you can create such beautiful and interesting smoky eye looks with them.
