Celeb Stylist Sarah Potempa Shares Last Minute DIY Halloween Hair Tips



With Halloween this week you may still be looking for that perfect last minute look. Luckily, if you’re in need of some inspiration celebrity hair stylist, Sarah Potempa has created two DIY looks that are trick-or-treat worthy and easily replicated using a step-by-step 30 second video tutorial.
 



For all the caffeine addicts out there, Sarah created her take on everyone’s favorite Coffee Mermaid by creating effortless waves using the Beachwaver Pro ($199) and adding clip on extensions that have been dyed green using a Lemon Lime Hair Chalk from Splat. Compliment this look with an emerald lip and eye, attach a cut out paper crown with bobby pins and voila you now are Coffee Mermaid swimming among the endless order of Pumpkin Spice Lattes! 

We've had another year of the unicorn; Sarah’s unique take on this mythical creature can be created in 3 easy steps! First, style with the Beachwaver Pro and brush out the waves with paddle brush to get voluminous body. Then apply Splat Hair Chalk in Pink Hearts, Dusty Rose, and Silver Moon ($5.99 each) to create an ombre rainbow affect in minutes with the temporary hair chalk that works on all hair colors.




Apply each chalk in small sections of the hair to get vivid color, use a paddle brush to even the color and finalize the look. Finally, to create a unicorn horn, take strands of hair extensions and apply Splat Hair Chalk to them and wrap them around Styrofoam or a Beachwaver Half Up ($9) creating a DIY horn and then pin to your hair. Finish off with some glitter, make up, and colorful accessories and you are ready to spread glamour, peace, and love this Halloween!




TME Tip: If you’re looking for the perfect red lipstick for Halloween, we just discovered ECRU New York’s Velvet Air Lipstick in Mulberry ($24)! While Sarah has given us a few amazing (as always) ideas, we believe that any look can be spiced up a little. The Mulberry shade is a rich, sensual burgundy that transform from satin to matte with the swipe of a finger!

Happy Halloween! ~xo Team TME

The Wonder Woman Toned Tan for Halloween


It’s no surprise that the top trending women’s costume for Halloween 2017 is “Wonder Woman.”  What else do you need alongside your superwoman outfit? Complete your Wonder Woman look with a total bronzed, contoured, toned and concealed tan that will withstand the most active of nights out and hardcore workout routines. It isn’t always the easiest to achieve, but we have some great tips to get that amazing glow!

The Wonder Woman Toned Tan How To:


Products Needed: St. Tropez Body Polisher, St. Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Moisturizer, St. Tropez Tan Applicator Mitt, St. Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Lotion, St. Tropez Everyday Gradual Tan Tinted Body Lotion, and St. Tropez 3-in-1 Bronzing Powder.

PRO TIP - Exfoliating the day before self-tan application will allow your skin to have the perfect Ph. balance for ultimate color development.

The Night Before Halloween: You will need St. Tropez's Tan Applicator Mitt, St. Tropez's Self-tan Classic Bronzing Lotion and tan enhancing body moisturizer. If you exfoliated the day/morning before all you will need to do is remove all products from the skin including deodorant and body lotions.

Face First - Eye serums are fine to wear underneath so treat your skin. Don't Forget To Tie Long Hair Back! Using your bare hands apply one quarter size amount of self-tan lotion and one quarter sized amount of tan enhancing body moisturizer and blend together in the palm of your hand. Apply blended lotion to your face and neck making sure every facial section is covered. This includes over and under the eyes to conceal dark circles and any crow’s feet. Fade down the neck and onto the ear lobes to finish. Stop just before the hairline and then using a tiny amount of moisturizer only blend into hairline. Using a cotton swab wipe the eyebrows, especially if you have fair skin, and any other areas that you do not wish to be tanned. Wash your hands to proceed! Next the Body …

Apply body moisturizer to the whole of the foot, knees, elbows and the whole of the hands not forgetting the backs of the wrists. Apply the tan starting with the legs first. Apply 2 quarter sized amounts of self-tan lotion directly onto the mitt. Start with the lower leg and following a flat hand and a light stroke rule, glide the lotion on, wrap around the front and the back of the lower leg. Stop at the foot and glide over the knee, then with the excess lotion left on the mitt glide over your well-moisturized foot. Make sure to blend in-between your toes. Take a baby wipe and clean the nails. For a perfect super star result take a little St. Tropez body moisturizer and blend up the back of the heels and over any dry problem areas. Reload your tan applicator mitt (2- 3 quarter sized) and glide over the front and back of the thigh and over your bottom cheek! Repeat on the other side. Reload your mitt with about 4 quarter-sized amounts of lotion and glide over your torso and chest. Flip the mitt around the other way so that the white application side is on the back of your hand, we are now tanning the back and this will make your application easy. Reload another 4 quarter sized pumps and bend your back forward. Twist your arm and smooth over the back swapping mitt to the other hand to help when applying to the far side. Finish by blending into the back of the neck.

PRO TIP - Don’t worry if the built in bronzer does not look perfect and even at this stage, as long as the skin is covered with the self-tan lotion the St. Tropez self-tan will always develop perfect and even once the first shower has taken place. So don’t panic Wonder Woman's glow will be 100% even! Lastly we will tan the arms and hands. Again reload the mitt (2 ¼ sized pumps) smooth over the whole arm stopping at the wrist and gliding over the elbow. Then swap mitt hands, reload your and apply to the other arm. Using the excess lotion that is left on the mitt glide over your well moisturized hands making sure you blend in-between the fingers and down the sides of the hands. Wait 30 seconds for the lotion to absorb then swap mitt hands and repeat on the other hand. Lastly take a baby wipe and clean all your nails and palms. Using a little St. Tropez moisturizer blend up the back of your wrist and over your knuckles.

Night Of Halloween: Take a shower to remove the built in bronzer and to reveal a perfect flawless Amazonian glow. Moisturize the whole body using St. Tropez Tan Enhancing Moisturizer (used daily this will maintain your tan for up to 10 days).

Final Skin Finish … Use St. Tropez's Gradual Tan Tinted on exposed key skin areas, and contour lines this will create extra tone, depth of color, illumination, hydration plus extra concealing. Results will be a truly perfect second skin of body armor, fit for our warrior Wonder Woman. You can either apply the product with a foundation brush, then use a tan applicator mitt to blend, apply and blend using a beauty blender or apply with your bare hands just remember to wash hands well afterwards.

PRO TIP - You only have to use small amount of gradual tan tinted to perfect your skin. A little goes along way! Apply the gradual tan tinted to main focal points and blend around the natural contour lines. A layer of St Tropez's Self Tan Classic Bronzing Lotion will naturally make you look more contoured and defined but the extra layer of St Tropez's gradual tan tinted will really take your skin finish to the next level.

Final Touch. Bronzing Powder: Once your hair is complete, your make-up is on and your St Tropez gradual tan tinted has been applied take the St. Tropez 3 in 1 bronzing Powder and SET this amazing wonder woman look. Using a large brush swirl all shades of the pallet together and apply, shade, contour and set where needed. Cheekbones, under jawline, shoulders, collarbone, cleavage, triceps, biceps, inner/outer thigh, shin bone and tops of the feet …

Products can be found online at St. Tropez or in-store at Sephora.

Halloween Hair Made Easy With Redken Color Rebel Hair Makeup



From Katy Perry’s bold blue to Rachel McAdams’ pastel pink and Nicole Richie’s pretty purple, celebrities and trendsetters alike are making bold style statements with their hair color. Okay, granted not everyone can arrive at the office with unconventionally hued hair … but all work and no play makes for a boring existence! Not to mention that Halloween, the fun night when even the most conservative go rogue, is just around the corner.

Introduced this month, Redken’s Color Rebel hair makeup offers major versatility. Using makeup technology with direct color pigments, Color Rebel deposits a very fine colored micro-coating on the surface of the hair, making it resistant against water and mechanical aggressors, such as brushing, blow-drying or flat-ironing. The hydrophobic nature of its micro-coating limits modification or transfer due to water. Water slides along the surface of the hair fibers coated by Color Rebel.



Available in five shades, Color Rebel allows you to change your look in a minute. What Color Rebel shade do you want to be? Red-y to Rock: True red, Rebel Without a Coral: Punchy coral, Punked Up Pink: Fuchsia pink, Purple Riot: Bright purple, Guilty as Charged: Gold Shimmer, or Limited Edition! Silver Glitter Spray!

How To Use:
  1. Prime the product by shaking well and twisting the cap in the direction of the arrows until the tip is saturated.
  1. Apply Color Rebel to clean or day-after hair by gently pulling sections taut and applying in a smooth sweeping motion. Start with a light layer – you can always add more to build color intensity.
  1. Simply let hair air dry or blowdry for faster results. Keep combing or brushing to a minimum after applying as this will break up the color pigments.
Tip -- For a more subtle effect, dispense just a drop of product on the sponge tip applicator and use longer sweeping motions to apply the color in one thin layer to a smaller section of hair. Gently comb or brush each section to break up the color pigments.

Ready to remove? Color Rebel washes out after two shampoos, but if you want to remove instantly, you can do so in two easy ways. Simply wash hair with Redken Hair Cleansing Cream or apply a drop of Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine or All Soft Argan-6 Multicare Oil to the area where you would like to remove the color and rub the hair between your fingers until the color pigment dissolves. Redken products can only be guaranteed authentic when purchased from a salon. To locate a Redken salon, please visit Redken.

Last minute Halloween costume ideas


So you’re going to a Halloween party tonight right? And you still haven’t figured out you’re Halloween costume. Realizing that at this point, it’s too late to order online and even if your local Halloween store has something, you’re likely to fight crowds and overpay for a cheaply made costume.

Check out these super easy costume ideas that you can grab by hitting up the mall on your lunch hour or after work!

Lindsay Lohan – Everyone’s favorite celebrity train wreck! Okay, honestly I adore Lindsay that aside, a LiLo costume is super sexy and easily accomplished. LiLo’s trademarks are her lips, the unforgettable “Victoria Gotti” blonde hair and the electronic cigarette.
  • Lips - Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Plumping Treatment Sheer Pink ($6.99 USD) available at CVS or Walgreens.
  • Blonde Hair – Hair extensions are available at Sally Beauty Supply starting at $6.99 USD
  • Electronic Cigarette – Smoking is gross, but you can opt for blu eCigs that are available for $12.95 USD at Walgreen’s or Duane Reade.
  • Sexy Dress – if you have something in your closet, New Year’s Eve level, then you’re ahead of the game. If not, you can pop into H&M and grab a New Year’s Eve worthy dress for under $35 USD with an added bonus that you can actually wear the dress for New Year’s Eve! For approximately $47.00 USD you have an amazing costume and a sexy New Year’s Eve dress!

Rocker Girl – This is such an easy costume and you’ll most likely wear the main accessory again.

  • Hair and Makeup – Go wild! Crazy, sexy hair and heavy makeup begin this look. Check out the hair and makeup tutorials HERE!
  • Clothes – You most likely have a tight top and jeans in your closet. The main accessory for this costume is the leather jacket, which you can pick up at Forever 21 for $34.80 USD. It’s faux leather and cute enough to wear again.
  • Accessories - Skull or Stud Accessories finish the Rocker Girl custom. Add an awesome skull ring from H&M for $7.95 USD or if skulls aren’t your thing add a chunky, stud ring from Forever 21 for $5.80 USD. For approximately $45.00 USD you have a rockin’ costume and a jacket that you’ll wear again!

Flapper – This is a timeless costume and so easy to put together.

  • Hair – For short to medium hair lengths, create a wave in your hair and for long hair you can either create a wave and tuck your hair back or go for all out curls. Of course you need to add a flapper style headband, which you can grab at Forever 21 for $3.80 USD.
  • The Dress – H&M has a flapper-style dress for $49.95 USD and you can re-wear this dress around the holidays and no one will even notice it was your Halloween costume.
