How-To Makeup for Day to Night

It's that time of year for Holiday Happy Hours, Parties and More!

We know many of you are limited on time and need easy ways to move from day to night makeup. Our resident makeup guru took the time to show you two easy looks- one for day and one for evening that work together! 

Left: Daytime   Right: Evening

Left: Daytime 

Right: Evening

For your daytime look, you will want to start with your favorite face coverage. We love to use Aveda's concealer for under eye coverage and spot coverage before applying their tinted moisturizer and sealing it with their dual coverage foundation. For more coverage, dampening the sponge will create heavier coverage. 

For your eyes, Gobi Sands eye shadow not only creates the perfect, natural every-day eye, the lightly pigmented colors also compliment every eye color! The trio has a light, medium, and dark shade. Keep lighter shades closer to the inner corner of your eye and darker shades closer to the outside corner of your eye...this creates the illusion of larger eyes! We used Black Orchid as the go-to liner in both of our looks. For daytime, we lightly lined above the lashes for a subtle effect.

For your lips, use a light color that brings out your natural lip color. Our personal favorite here at Thirty Hair used to create this look is Sheer Primose Lip Color. It is the perfect pink for a natural, yet refreshed looking lip. The nourish-mint mineral lip color provides sheer coverage while plumping and smoothing the appearance of fine lines.  

To transition to the evening look, we used deeper pigments & colors on the eyes and lips.

 

For your eyes, we added Rosegold single eye shadow into the crease of the eye to deepen the color, we also added a winged liner using the same black liner to create more of a bold look.

For your lips, we swapped lip colors to Carnelian, a deep burgundy color that compliments all skin tones! 

 

If you love either of these looks but want to have some lessons on how and what to use, schedule a holiday makeup session with Emmy any Saturday this month! 

 

 

 

Aveda Skincare and Makeup Event

We are a week away from our first intimate setting skincare and makeup event! On Wednesday, November 9 from 6pm to 8pm, we will be hosting 10 ladies for a special night of skincare knowledge, hands on lessons and makeup how-to's. This past Tuesday, Emmy, our amazing makeup artist, went through and taught us her five minute face with Aveda makeup. We learned a lot, asked lots of questions and had fun playing with new lipstick colors!

 

 

There are only a few spots left so call to reserve your spot before it's sold out!

Transform Your Skin

We are so excited to officially launch the new Aveda skincare Tulsara. 

On Wednesday, November 9, we will be having an exclusive event for a limited number of guests to enjoy a full skin analysis, a skincare tutorial and application, makeup color assessment and application as well as light refreshments and beverages and a free gift valued at $30. 

 

The biggest thing to know about the new Tulsara line is that it takes older tried and true philosophies from the Ayuverdic principles combined with new technology and ingredients to give your skin the best chance at stellar results. They have introduced an amazing new dry brush with an oleation oil to help you increase blood flow to your skin and exfoliate your skin daily, in turn helping your skincare penetrate deeper and better. 

After learning about the skincare lines and having a skin analysis, you will then get to utilize the products to cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin to perfection. Our makeup artists will then teach you the perfect 5 minute makeup application with customized colors for your skin, hair and eyes. We will then help you apply it, giving you lots of tips and tricks!

Spaces are limited, reservations can be made by emailing sarah@thirtyhair.com We look forward to you joining us on November 9!

 

A sneak peek behind doing bridal hair and makeup

Have you ever thought about all the work it takes to get a bridal party ready for the BIG day? It can be fun, stressful, chaotic, and exciting all rolled into one. There's so many emotions when planning a wedding and we love to help take some of the stress of the day. 

Our planning process for our brides include a full consultation and conceptual trial for hair and makeup prior to the wedding day. We help you plan the schedule for the morning of, help you find a headpiece/veil if you haven't yet already and give you real advice on what will and won't work with your hair and face shape but also with the theme of your day. We love to utilize secret pinterest boards with you to grow the concept of the look for the day and make sure we hit the nail on the head for your dream day. 

 

We travel to you or you can come to us. We also can work quickly on a time constraint or we can enjoy a leisurely day of hair and makeup. Our record is 5 girls hair and makeup in 1 hour and 15 minutes! We've had the pleasure of fixing a train as the bride walks down the aisle, the fun of helping hook the bracelet on and so many other special memories.

The pictures on this blog deserve a special shout out. This wedding was done back in Kansas and Sarah got to have the fun of working with Tori North of Tori North Photography for the day. Thanks Tori for sharing with us!


Aveda Sublime Spirit Makeup

Fall is right around the corner at Thirty Hair Aveda Exclusive Salon in Columbia Maryland!

We are getting with the fall colors, and have gotten the new Aveda make up line in the salon! 

We have two shades of lipstick, one is a great burgundy shade  "blackberry" and there is a great  nude "sandstone".  Then we have two lip glosses to correlate with the lipsticks "pink clover" and "desert earth".  To top off the lips, there is a lip liner "purple sage" which is best mixed with the darker shades of lipstick/gloss to define your lips prior to applying the lipstick. 

Moving onto the eyes, we have both eye shadow and eye liner that are just the perfect fall colors!  From dark to light, the eye shadows that we have are blue lapis, green sencha, sandalwood, and golden ginger.  These colors can be used individually for a little subtle boost, or together for a bold fall look. 

Either way, your eyes will look fabulous! 

Of course, you will need to add some eyeliner to your look and for that we have your go-to brown  "cacao" and a gorgeous green "night ivy".  Both of these colors are very natural earth shades and will make your eyes pop!

Come on into the salon to check out these exclusive new products!  We have a tester palate set up right on the front desk so you can't miss it!  Hope to see you all soon!

Why Aveda?

So many times people ask us, why aveda?

Well, why not?

First, their hair color is AMAZING. It is as natural as you can get while also being an incredibly flexible color line that can do everything from blend grey, condition your hair while changing the tone of it, to covering grey or creating an incredible change on your hair. It also can give you those pastel colors or granny hair that's all the rage these days.

Second, their business philosophies and what they stand for is a huge plus both as a person and as a business. Have you ever checked it out?

  

beliefs

1. we believe in treating ourselves,each other, and the planet with care and respect.

2. we believe social responsibility is our responsibility.

3. we believe ecological and profit goals are mutually achievable.

4. we believe our authenticity and experience are our points of difference.

5. we believe in inspiring and educating people to integrate wellness and beauty in their lives.

6. we believe in the power of oneness: from our global image to a focused network.

7. we believe learning never ends.

8. we believe in encouraging innovation and empowered decision-making.

9. we believe our actions, products and services should always embody excellence.

10. we believe personal and organizational balance is the key to sustainable success.

11. we believe true leadership is delivered with passion and by example.

 

That's all part of aveda. It means that there's constantly awesome education coming down the pipeline both for our stylists and our management and desk team. It means instead of always fighting against other salons in business, we can work together, much like we got to do this past winter with one of our favorite salons around, Salon Marielle in Historic Ellicott City!

It also has just about all the products you need to start and end your day. We love that you can utilize one product line for your haircare, skincare, bodycare and makeup needs. Have you ever tried their shampure candles for lotion when your hands are cracked and dry? Let me tell you about how amazing that feels! Or have you tried one of their nourish-mint lip glazes? Us ladies at Thirty Hair may just be obsessed with their pigment, the fact that they smell like mint AND they happen to be anti-aging!

So in a nutshell, that's why aveda. Their level of standard is amazing and we love being a part of the Aveda culture. Some people call it the kool-aid, but hey we aren't complaining ;)
