Pretty in peach!

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

“ ’Tonal, monochrome or matchy-matchy’ ” is the perfect way to sum up one of this season’s hottest makeup looks. To translate the trend, pick a single colorway and apply it to the eyelid, top of the cheekbone and lip. Sunset shades like peach, melon, apricot and marmalade were seen at shows like Jaeger, Preen and DKNY. Choose these hues – they look fresh, feminine and oh so pretty on everyone!” LMM, 2012.

“In my opinion, Lady Danger by MAC is one of the best red lipsticks ever invented. It’s a kick-ass color with a killer texture. Pocket it!” LMM, 2011.

Red lips are key again this season. Tailor the trend to your taste. Wear it sheer, or let your pout SHOUT. The choice is yours.

To create impact, use contrasting shades and textures. In this look, I paired an earthy eye with a loud lip, and used a range of finishes from matte to metallic. (more…)

Summer makeup look 2011

Gold made a sparkling comeback in the S/S 11 catwalk shows. I loved the Valentino and Bottega Veneta looks in particular. The models flaunted dewy skin, gilded eyes, and soft pink lips and cheeks. If you dare to be different, rock it like Rodarte! They made a statement by pairing gold eyeshadow with metallic lipstick.

Makeup artist tip!

Before you begin applying makeup, always tweeze any stray eyebrow hairs first.


Applying foundation with a brush

1. For a natural-looking complexion, select a sheer foundation(a) and apply it with a foundation brush(b). Blend outward and downward from the center of the face and use your fingertips where needed (i.e. near the hairline and on areas that require a fuller, more built-up coverage).

2. Conceal the eyelids, dark under-eye circles, redness and spots. Apply concealer(c) to the necessary areas with a brush(d); then, for a natural finish, blend by “patting” it into the skin with the pad of your finger. (more…)
