BySenia Wagner – how has changed our beauty life over the last 20 years and what to do if you don’t want to appear retrograde.
1. To choose a concealer based on the type of skin
Our mom was just the tone of “Ballet” – and, if you’re lucky (with ink in a plastic box with brush – remember her?). Today, every self-respecting beauty-mark klassificeret makeup for your skin type. And to deaf ears, or rather, persons with this classification error. Reviews bloggers, advertising, recommendations of friends – all this, of course, can be useful, but only passed through your own filter based on your skin type. If oily skin to “feed” the tight silicone means a likely rash. The alcohol in the composition, too, is is taboo: it will dry your skin, and it is in response is to allocate more sebum. But the mark “are non-comedogenic” is obligatory.
Dry skin needs more water, it is a good tool, water-based. But if there are already peeling, then “water” means only accentuate, there’s no silicones can not cope. In combination you need to combine different makeup in the T-zone is matte, the rest of the face is lighter, more moisturizing.
Determine your skin type from a dermatologist, and ask the consultants in the store to offer you strictly the relevant notes. My skin is prone to rashes in the T-zone and dryness on the rest of the face. This fall, I enjoyed the new tone serum Clarins tone with a radiant effect from Clinique’s long tested Luminous Silk by Giorgio Armani and plan to try the new Benefit Foundation – once loved their Hello Flawless tone.
2. Not to forget the eyebrows
In your purse – just eyebrow pencil, and the one appropriate for autumn is a warm color? Take a deuce. Without proper make-up eyebrows is lost the eye makeup and the face does not look well-kept and older than it is. The best thing you can do is to go to a good brow-bar to the correction and coloring eyebrows (my favorite masters of the brow working in the salons Keep Looking, “Muscovite”, if you want a painless correction of the wax in the Wax&Go), and then to maintain the result of competent facilities of the house.
The best thing that ever happened personally with my brows – Brow Wiz pencil from Anastasia Beverly Hills, and the shade Benefit and Guerlain – they are good for eyebrows that are lacking volume. If his eyebrows were bushy and they, on the contrary, needs to be cleaned – pay attention to gels, for example, colorless Art-Visage. But orange pencils that the pencil appears brown, bucholic you do not forgive is one of the blunders in makeup, as I described here.
3. Contouring – Yes
No, not someone like Kim Kardashian. To turn into a tiger or to change racial identity is not necessary. But slightly to highlight the cheekbones or to make a thinner bridge of the nose with concealer slightly darker than your skin. Rule three: apply a little money, carefully smudge it with your fingers or with a brush, do not forget to apply on top of blush or highlighter – contouring of the “blended” with your skin. It is most convenient to use the correctors in the sticks, but the palette is also good and more economical – they have a lot of shades that you can mix depending on the season, availability of tanning etc. And both look at professional brands of makeup, M. A. C, Make Up For Ever, Inglot.
4. Have a matte lipstick
Yeah, she’s still in Vogue (for that season!). And Yes – it is much more resistant than a normal lipstick. The bad news is that matte lipstick can age, if you choose the wrong shade or apply it and forget about the tone. The first rule is to perfect skin: not to look with a matte lipstick with abulencia, make skin glow, correct tones and military to help you. Rule two: if the lips are bright and matte, let the eyes will light arrows, or the emphasis on thick eyelashes. Otherwise you can overload the face.
And for dessert: cool berry shades make teeth whiter, all with a warm undertone is more yellow. Matte lipstick draws attention to the smile stronger than usual. The most persistent and intense formulas look at Lime Crime, NoUBA, Chanel, Giorgio Armani, Caylin, M. A. C.
5. To use the concealer
The skin under the eyes is thinner than on the face and normal tone is to dry it. As, however, and too thick concealer. Choose a liquid formula is: the more the tool “fluid”, the less it will emphasize fine lines, which are always in this area. Apply such funds to the pad of the ring finger, lightly Pat – so cover get the most natural, and you will not stretch the skin. Brilliant concealers – brands Erborian and Yves Saint Laurent. And about the best cream for the skin around the eyes, I told here.
6. To prepare the skin for makeup
Ecology, nutrition, speed of life today, everything is different than it was 20 years. If you do not take care of the skin since adolescence, as a result of contemporary external influences, it will age prematurely. Preparation makeover is one of the most important acts of such care.
First, apply makeup only on a thoroughly cleansed face or the pimples. Second, before applying the tone the skin it is important to moisturize, as even the best Foundation formula dry. Thirdly, any tone much better lies on a special base primer, especially if you have oily skin with enlarged pores. Dry base can serve as a regular moisturizer for the face. And if you use and care, and base, the database apply only when care is completely absorbed 20-30 minutes after the cream. The most effective tandems base+tone (it is better to buy tools one brand) – Make Up For Ever, Promakeup laboratory, Estée Lauder, M. A. C, Tom Ford.
7. Don’t be afraid of blush
Nested doll cheeks as kinogeroi 80s – many are still “you” with the blush, because I do not know how to use them correctly. I agree with the dry product is easy to overdo it (although the “overdose” you can always adjust powder or tone). But with the liquid and especially the blush sticks, life is easier – put a little dot in the middle of the cheeks and then gently blending it with your finger. The natural effect is guaranteed! By the way, these formulas are especially good for dry skin – unlike the classic blush, they do not emphasize flaking and don’t give a “pain”. Blush sticks have brands Sleek MakeUp, Bobbi Brown, L’etoile. Instructions for using the most capricious pink shades and four bonus beauty tip from me here.
