Makeup Tip of the Week

Hey there folks! I know, I know....it's been a while since I did a tip of the week....my summer has been really busy between working, doing makeup classes, photo shoots, and fighting dragons and...wait...not that last bit! No, but in all seriousness, I have been really busy this past month and haven't really been able to find the time...or the energy...to do a makeup tip of the week, let alone think of one! So here I am, nearly the end of a overly warm day, trying to write this! But I've been thinking, and I thought that maybe I could add some hair tips in here too (can't take all the credit...my mom thought of it first)! "But Alyx....you're a MAKEUP ARTIST....not a hair person, thing!" True and not true! I AM a makeup artist but I am a LICENSED makeup artist, which means I went to beauty school...AND FINISHED! So I am licensed to cut, color, perm, relax, style hair, do basic facials, do makeup, attempt tweezing your eyebrows, do basic manicures, etc etc etc! But enough about MY life...on to my Makeup/Hair Tip of the Week....that title might need some work!

So this week.../month, I want to discuss something that not really everyone knows about...your health and how it affects your hair...and skin. Now I want you to do something really quick as you are reading this...ready? Reach up and pull a strand of hair from your head! Go on...don't look at me with that tone of voice! Do it! Okay, now that you've done that, take a look at it. That right there my friends, in your hands, most likely between your thumb and index finger, is your life story! Everything in your life, everything you consume, everywhere you go, can be told to a stranger from that ONE strand in your hand...that rhymed! One strand of hair can show an entire rap sheet better than your blood and police can before they look you up. If you have ever drank, done drugs, been pregnant, ate all those french fries in one sitting....or that pizza, your hair will say that! YOU may not be able to see it, but it is true! Your hair absorbs EVERYTHING that the rest of your body does, which is why you take vitamins to help your hair be shinier, your skin cleaner, and your nails grow longer. But that isn't all, your hair will show how many times you visit your hairstylist for a root touch up, or that box for a root touch up, it shows how often you get get your hair lightened per year, it shows everything! So...basically...take care of yourself and your hair and skin will look so much healthier....and not tell your dirty little secrets! ;)

Until next time....Stay Bold!
