Formula How-To: Twilight Sky by Pravana

Victoria Wurdinger | October 28, 2015 | 1:58 PM

With the new Pravana Vivids Black, multiple shades of smokey grays and crisp carbons, deep shadowy violets and muted lavenders collide. Just a few drops of black added to an existing formula creates a deeper, darker version of itself.

 

FORMULAS & APPLICATION:

 

Natural level 6

 

Formula 1: Pravana Pure Light Power Lightener and choice of developer

 

Formula 2: 56 g Pastels Pretty in Pink + 16 g Vivids Magenta + 72 g Vivids Silver + 30 g Vivids Black

 

Formula 3: 100 g Pastels Pretty in Pink + 1 g Vivids Violet + 3 g Vivids Black
