“I love using liquid color to create my smudge and tone dimensional looks because of the effortless blend and melting that the color lines provide! The perfect smudge and tone looks fresh but lived in, which is the exact kind of look that my clients and so many girls are looking for right now! I’m also a huge fan of the smudge and tone technique because it allows you to mix warm and cool tones in a way that gives a beautiful end result that’s completely customizable!” - Elizabeth Faye
"I love this smudge & tone look. For this, I used equal parts Shades EQ 7NB & 8N with a splash of 8VB. For max brightness, I rinsed then smudged and toned after. I used 9V, 9NB, and 9GI with clear (equal parts) for about 10-15 min." - Elizabeth Faye
