DIY: hairchalking w/ cream eyeshadow


Here’s a fun #latepost! I did this little experiment months ago.. Temporary hair color using cream eyeshadows as hair chalk! Loved the results! Find out how it was done…

1. I started with clean, dry, styled hair. It’s actually good to do this near the time when your style is getting a few days old like mine was.


2. Choose your color(s)


I chose these 3 shades by Maybelline Color Tattoo 24Hr Cream Gel Shadow in Tenacious Teal, Painted Purple and Pomegranate Punk. The colors should show up on most natural hair colors but the pink shade was very light on blonde hair. I really loved the intensity of the teal shade. It’s purrty!!

3. Get Messy


This is gonna get a little messy… Not incredibly messy but that is what my hand looked like when I was finished applying the eyeshadow. You will take sections of hair and apply the cream eyeshadow by pulling it from top to bottom. I did not really have a plan for how I wanted it to look so I just randomly placed the colors. I used the teal the most because it gave the most intense color. And it’s my favorite color ^_^

4. Style & Serve
I used a heat protectant called Sultra Diva Pressing Creme and curled with my flat iron. The results…



The colors appear more pastel in normal light. But I had a very fun time playing around with Instagram filters! Made some really colorful photos. I felt like a rainbow mermaid!




The color stays until you wash it out. And it washes right out very easily with your regular shampoo. This is a fun, easy, temporary way to play with fun colors in your hair.
