For most of us, wearing makeup is a way we express our personal style. Over the years, the way we wear makeup has evolved. There is no longer a need to plaster your face with heavy caked on makeup. Current makeup trends are all about a fresh face and highlighting your natural beauty.
Cleanse your skin and apply a light moisturizer, like the popular product BB cream. BB cream is a tinted moisturizer that evens out your skin tone and gives you a healthy glow. This product provides just enough coverage without making your skin heavy and overdone.
Lipstick/lip gloss can either make or break you. Look for a lipstick that is two shades darker than your natural lip color. Want a trendier look? Treat your lips to deep plums, orange and vibrant reds. If you want to have a strong lip, don’t try to compete with a strong eye. Pick one and rock it!
The right blush can make your face come alive and add a natural flush to your face. Lightly sweep the blush upwards onto the apples of your cheeks. This will provide a natural look, not the dreaded chiselled one.
The days of raccoon eyes are coming to an end. Instead of lining your entire eye, line the upper lids of the eye with small brush strokes, slowly moving the applicator slightly upwards and outwards. This will create the popular cat-eye look. A great way to achieve this look is by using liquid eye-liner or an eye pencil.
Black and deep brown mascara are always popular but colored mascara is a major fall trend. Look for blue, violet and hunter green. This will allow your eyes to really pop.
Eye shadow can really enhance your eyes and make them come to life. For daytime use, try using a natural matted color and for a more dramatic evening look create a smoky eye. Browns and soft blacks look great. Just remember to blend!
From matte, shellac, high gloss and acrylic, nail polish really allows you to be creative. The bolder the better!
You don’t need to wear a lot of makeup to feel attractive. CL wants you to feel confident, intelligent and beautiful in whatever you do. Having a fresh face and a great attitude will leave a lasting impression with whomever you meet and will allow your personality to shine through.
