Remember learning about the color wheel in art class way back when? Complementary colors (opposite colours) have the ability to cancel one another out when combined. If you’re thinking this is a random fact, it isn’t. When it comes to color correcting in makeup, knowledge of the color wheel actually comes in handy!
Here are tips on how to use color correction in you makeup routine.
- Green. Green cancels out red. So whether it’s acne, rosacea or a sunburn you’re looking to hide, a green color corrector will do the trick.
- Purple. Purple combats dull, yellow skin.
- Yellow. Yellow cancels out purple discolouration and brightens for those with medium to dark skin tones.
- Pink. For paler skin tones, pink corrector is great for concealing dark circles, age/sun spots and brightening.
- Peach. For fair to medium skin tones, a peach corrector is great for concealing dark circles, hyperpigmentation and bruises.
- Orange. For medium to dark skin tones, an orange corrector is great for concealing dark circles, hyperpigmentation and bruises.
- Red. For deeper skin tones, a red corrector is great for concealing dark circles. Red can also be used to cancel out green (e.g. tattoos).
Winter provides the perfect excuse to throw on jeans and a sweater every day from December through to March. That said, some days call for more than just denim. We constantly need the inspiration of the street style crowd to pull ourselves out of style ruts.
It’s time to brush up on winter’s biggest trends by looking at what your favorite street style stars are wearing. We’ve narrowed down the street style trends to six digestible looks below. Give them a try, and say adios to the jean/sweater outfit (at least for six out of the seven days of the week).
Furry, Fuzzy Outerwear
Parkas and puffers are great for winter, but when you really want to feel like a million bucks, nothing beats a plush faux fur coat. And you’re never too late to hop on this trend. This season’s offerings are better than ever, with brands debuting furry coats in vibrant colors like pink and cobalt. If colorful fur isn’t your cup of tea, you can easily find a brown or black outerwear alternative. The coats are so cozy, you may even find yourself draped in one while you wait for the heat to be turned on.
It feels like all of our favorite brands are offering a fleece-something for the wintery season. Options include mixed prints and color-block designs in pullover styles or the more classic zip-ups we’ve all come to know and love. Fleece is comfortable, soft, warm—basically everything your body craves when the temperature drops. Give your denim and leather jackets a break for a cozier fleece pick, below.
Can’t decide what color you want the garment to come in? The two-tone look solves that problem. Instead of having to stick with one color, you have the option to wear a half-and-half look for winter 2019. Though the color-block design is most prevalent in dresses, you can find two-toned tops as well by many brands. This small mash up of hues won’t dramatically alter your look, but it will add a little intrigue—and earn you brownie points for style.
The appeal of matching separates lies in the fact that you don’t have to overthink what to wear in the mornings—one decision and you’re ready to head out the door. It’s no surprise, then, that pantsuits have become a staple in a fashion girl’s closet, as evidenced by these street style shots. Whether you choose a check set or a plain colored pantsuit, you’ll feel like an instant boss woman in the ensemble.

Halloween Hair – The Perfect Costume
Halloween is just around the corner. No costume planned? It’s ok, because we have 5 simple do’s that are a costume by themselves. Check out these spooky looks you can create quickly using just your hair. The last thing you want to be is a basic witch…
This is not only the cutest hairstyle you’ve ever seen but it’s super easy to create too. Just start by taking two triangular sections at the back of your parting where you want your ears to sit. You need to backcomb each section to create some volume and then start folding them towards the back of your head to create the ear shape. Then secure the ends of your hair with a bobby pin and pull out sections as much as you need to to get the right shape. If you’re struggling you can twist the ends to make it easier too. Finish with lots of hairspray and some bobby pins at the base to hold everything in place.
Who wouldn’t want to look like the most beautiful mythical creature of all? To create this style pull a section of hair at the front of your head into a pony and start backcombing. Then place another
bobble at the point where you want your unicorn horn to end and begin wrapping your hair around the shape. If your hair is quite thin or short you can use your Milk +Blush two-cli
p wefts to add as much length and thickness as you need. This look requires lots of hairspray too and keep using bobby pins as you go along as these will secure the shape. If you’re struggling try using a velcro roller to wrap your hair around instead. This will make it easier to create the base shape and you’ll have something for your hair to stick to. Finish with lots of hairspray and some colour or glitter if you’re feeling brave.
A halloween classic! Just start by parting your hair in the centre and creating two ponytails either side of your part where you want the horns to be. Just like in the last look if you need some extra length or volume add some wefts and start twisting the hair to create the look. For bigger horns you can use the velcro roller trick too but we love these cute little ones and they’re just as effective. Try teasing the horns towards your parting too for an extra devilish finish.
If you literally have 5 minutes to get ready then this is going to be your go to. Simply part your hair unevenly and create two sections either side. Pull these sections into a bobble and loop them to create the ear shape. We recommend using clear elastic bobbles as they’ll be undetectable and small enough to create the cute floppy finish. If you have time you can curl the rest of your hair but naturally messy curls are just as authentic! Done.
This looks super complicated but you can adapt it really easily and it’s way easier than you’d think. For the front of your hair you can braid it as in this picture or use bobbles to create sections of volume instead. The front of your hair doesn’t have to be super complicated as the tail is the main feature so be as creative or otherwise as you feel like. To make the scorpion tail start a braid at the nape of your neck and incorporate a pipe cleaner in a colour similar to your hair in the middle of it. If you need to add length clip your hair extensions in upside down before starting the braid and make sure to keep the hair super smooth so you conceal all the wefts. If you’re not great at dutch braids you can start with a ponytail instead and work from there. Just make sure to start it at the point where you want your tail to lift. When curling the braid make sure to create a big loop and leave some of your hair out at the end for an authentic and super scary tail.
Still not sure what to do with your do? Stop by TSPA and we’ll come up with the perfect Halloween look for your hair and makeup!

At TSPA Fargo we support many charities.
Our summer project theme was “Summer in the Buff”. We decided to sell Buffs (like the ones worn on the reality TV show “Survivor”) and hold an event with proceeds going to Make-A-Wish. Tens of thousands of volunteers, donors and supporters advance the Make-A-Wish® vision to grant the wish of every child diagnosed with a critical illness. In the United States and its territories, on average, a wish is granted every 34 minutes. To learn more about Make-A-Wish click here.
We had a food and ice cream event which featured a local BBQ food truck and an ice cream truck. Along with the trucks we also sold buffs and had a $1 spin to win booth.
The food and treats were great, and we showed off the many ways a Buff can be worn. The event was a great success!
On August 27th we presented Make-A-Wish with a check for $552.00 from event proceeds, and will be presenting another check from vendor proceeds. We are very proud of our staff and students for their dedication to helping others!
Refresh your look for fall
Even if you’re not heading back to school this fall, autumn is a great time to reinvent yourself, and refresh your look for fall.
Chilly temperatures bring opportunities to add more layers of clothing to your look, meaning that while you might physically need to wear more clothing, you’ll also have a chance to switch up your aesthetic.
Sourced from fashion experts and celebrity stylists, here are 15 ways to freshen up your look this fall.
Figure out a fall shopping budget before anything else.
There’s no hard and fast rule for how much you should spend on clothing. But you should probably figure out your upper limits before you start shopping.
The experts say it’s a good rule of thumb to spend 5% of your total monthly earnings on your clothes. So just multiply your monthly income by .05, and that’s your monthly clothing budget.
Kondo your closet.
Sell or donate any clothes that don’t give you joy. This will make adding new items to your wardrobe so much easier.
Take stock of your remaining wardrobe.
Before you buy anything new, take a good look at everything you already own.
Making a spreadsheet of all your clothes can help you figure out where your sartorial strengths and weaknesses lie.
Make sure you can access the spreadsheet on your phone while you’re out shopping later on so that you don’t accidentally double up on an item you already own.
Replace your staples if they look out of date.
“I think everybody needs a good going-out dress that can go from day to night, a perfect pair of jeans, a sweater that you feel amazing in and a motorcycle jacket,” she said. “A going-out dress is great for either running out and wearing it with sneakers on the weekend or wearing it to a meeting or dinner.”
Add in a “perfect white tee,” Welch said, and you’re good to go. You might also want to add a few more pieces of outerwear or work clothes depending on your needs.
Make a mood board on Pinterest or by cutting and pasting from magazines to get a sense of your personal taste.
Now that you know what you’re in the market for, you need to figure out exactly what aesthetic you’re going for this fall.
Before you make any purchases, create either a virtual or real-life collage of influences. Pull from photos of fashion bloggers, models, advertisements, fashion editorials, or whatever else inspires you.
As you keep cutting, pasting, and pinning, you’ll probably see some themes emerge. Keep these looks in mind as you get ready to make purchases.
Determine which items are worth spending extra money on.
It’s usually a good rule of thumb to drop extra cash on basic items that you’ll wear again and again.
Neutral-colored sweaters, black or brown boots, denim, and work-friendly shoes will be worn over and over, so they’re worth dropping extra cash on.
