How To Use Make Up As A Fashion Accessory
By Maria Llorente
Makeup can be one more accessory to your personal image and that's why we are going to explain to you step by step the most flattering and easy trends so that this season you will be beautiful.
There are various flattering trends this season. On the one hand, there is the natural look with earthy and gold tones, and neutral tones for the eyes and transparent but shinny lips. On the other hand, there is the sexier look with darker tones for the eyes from navy blue to purple, and (don't forget black), and dark sexy lips.
ADVICE: Choose a look that works for you and one that you feel most comfortable with and follow the advice that we give you below.
Give a touch of something pearlescent to your foundation and you'll achieve a modern and flattering look.
ADVICE: Apply your foundation to the entire face. Once it has been absorbed in to the skin, wait a few minutes for it to absorb, apply a small amount of illuminating powder in the T zone, forehead, cheekbones and chin. Blend it well with a brush for a pearly but natural effect. The result, light satiny skin.
Brighten your look by using a light cover up which is lighter than your skin tone over your foundation.
ADVICE: Blend it well around your eyes with your finger tip to take away any excess. And that's it, a great look without bags and full of life.
For a natural look, use browns and neutral tones.
ADVICE: Apply a golden tone on the upper eyelid to achieve the look and give it a touch of light. If you want your eyes to have a stronger look, use a dark brown pencil on the inner eye.
For a sexy look, use darker tones, the ones you like the most, from navy blue to bottle green. Or if you like, use grays or blacks.
ADVICE: Don't forget to put the darker color on your eyelid putting a blended line next to the eye lashes and put makeup on the outer eye with a black pencil. Lighten the eyelid just under the eyebrow with a pearly or shinny white for a sexy arousing look.
ESSENTIAL: Everyone notices mascara so curl your eyelashes beforehand and use two cotes to give them volume.
Give your cheekbones a healthy look with soft rosy natural colors.
ADVICE: Blend blush well with a clean brush and loose powder on your cheekbones.
If you want a natural look, or you have put too much lipstick on, apply lip gloss for a juicy natural look.
ADVICE: Choose a lip gloss that also shines and protects your lips.
On the other hand, if you want to forget the natural look, try a passion red or a bright fushia. The result, sexy provocative, but natural lips.
ADVICE: Use a well-sharpened lip pencil that is very similar to your lipstick to outline your lips. Do this before applying lipstick so that the color will last longer and it will be easier to use darker tones.
THE FINAL TOUCH
Wash your hair with a rinse similar to the natural color of your hair to make it brighter but without changing the color.
ADVICE: Ask you hairdresser. There are rinses that naturally moisturize and give shine to the hair.
