Your Face and Dermablend


Dermablend Covered Zombie Boy's Tattoos

That's Some Serious Cover

Dermablend Professional is a very popular choice and one that’s getting more popular all the time. The reason is simple- they have great products! Essentially you can buy all of your cosmetics in one place and know you have the best. Products like face mask, makeup and leg cover, Dermablend is truly one of the most incredible manufacturers of cosmetics in the world for exceptional coverage, for your face and anywhere else on your body.

Created in 1981, Dermablend is the #1 Dermatologist Recommended brand for coverage. Their leg cover is particularly popular, but so too are their other line of products. “For the past 30 years Dermablend has been recognized as an expert given the exceptional performance of Dermablend products in terms of coverage, wear-ability and skincare benefits. High performance wear and coverage has ensured its well-known and renowned recognition by the medical community and professional makeup artists.”

What many people don’t realize though is that Dermablend is so much more than a good cover choice. Their face mask line, for example, can produce some really incredible results on your face for many people. While they have a product line for almost everything cosmetic, it seems, what they don’t have is hair care products or anything related to hairstyles. If you need specific products related to hairstyles take a look at and others sites and articles. Perhaps it’s a wise choice that Dermablend didn’t try to be the over-extended provider that some brands try; you know, the good at everything but great at nothing. They’re really good at what they do and that’s top of the line cover makeup.

How good are they? Check out this article about Dermabrand and their job to cover up Zombie Boy’s total face tattoo. The results speak for themselves and make it clear that from face mask to makeup and leg cover, Dermablend is the top dog.

Tattoo Designs & Ideas – The Most Important Step

Tattoo designs have gotten really eccentric over the past 10 years, thanks in part most likely to shows like LA Ink and Miami Ink. People from all walks of life have gotten creative and ideas for tattoo designs are limitless. Places like TattooMeNow are rising into cult like status because people want to be unique and have the perfect tattoo. And long gone are the days when only old sailors had tattoos, and usually on their arms. Now people are getting tattoos in every place imaginable, and some unimaginable.

When thinking about tattoo designs people should think outside the box. In fact having the help of design shops like LA Ink (or TattooMeNow if you don’t have the money for or access to one of the top studios) is the best way to go because they have thousands of designs that you can build off of and use for inspiration for your own tattoo ideas.

You’ll also want to think about where you’re going to have your tattoo design inked. In this regard there’s also no limit. From the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, we’ve seen it all. Of course for a lot of people the pain associated with the location is a factor; let’s face it, getting inked in your private areas is going to hurt a lot more than say, your arm.

Choosing the tattoo designs is by far the most challenging part of the process; there are capable ink professionals in most towns. However, be VERY smart and check their record- are previous clients happy and do they practice safe inking procedures? The design is where the challenge comes in to play, so that’s where you should sink your time and energy. The tattoo ideas you come up with will be the ones you live with for a long time so it makes sense that you spend a little time and money to design the best possible tattoo that you can, which is why TattooMeNow and others are so highly recommended and popular.

Hairstyles and Hair Salons

Like the weather, hairstyles change and one week you want a medium hairstyle and another you want it short. The same is true for hair color; many girls will change their color from black hair to red within a few weeks. If you have a hair salon this is great news and you’re happy to see people changing hairstyles so often. For most people, their hair is one of the most important things to them.

When you go into a hair salon you’ll find that all of them have books and books with different hairstyles- short, medium, curly, straight, and hair colors- black hair, red, blonde and everything off the color wheel. People are unique and so it stands to reason that we all want our own style and color. The problem is, as you well know, not every hair salon is capable of replicating the same hairstyles you see in those books, and many times they can’t even get something as simple as black hair correctly. For some reason hair color isn’t something that’s been standardized in this country so black hair in one salon might be dark brown in another. And forget about getting the perfect shade of red form one hair salon to the next.

But worse than getting your perfect hair color wrong is getting the cut wrong. How hard is it to cut medium hairstyles when you’re looking at the sample from the book that we show you? And the same with short hairstyles. The reason I point out the medium and short hairstyles is that because with a long hairstyle there’s room to fix things; with medium and short hairstyles there’s no room for error. And this is precisely why for the most part we’re all loyal to a salon we like and know; if a stylist has nailed your preferred hairstyles over and over then why would you gamble going to another one?

Ironically, though, there are people who do like the excitement of going to a new hair salon and even find it exciting to get a new hairstyle that is outside their norm. I know people who will walk into a hair salon with black hair in a medium haircut and walk out blond with a short hairstyle. So hairstyles and hair colors are like food or cars, we all have a preference and thank goodness there are plenty of saloons to provide that variety.
