Tips To Apply Fashion Makeup
About Fashion Makeup
Fashion makeup is a makeup style sported by models on the fashion runway or for editorial photo shoots. Basically fashion makeup creates a lasting impact. To create a dramatic look makeup artists use effervescent colors and a lot of glitter in fashion makeup.
Fashion makeup is a highly experimental form of makeup. You can create just about any look with this type of makeup. It is easy to experiment with fashion makeup if you carefully study the makeup techniques used on top runway models. Some simple makeup tips to apply fashion makeup are given below.
To smoothen out skin blemishes and to create an even skin tone, a liquid or powder foundation in a shade that is closest to the natural skin tone is applied on the face and the neck. It is very important to blend the foundation into your skin to create a flawless, even look. Improperly blended foundation can give the skin a chalky or mottled appearance.
You can apply liquid foundation using a wedge shaped sponge. Dip the sponge in clean water and wring out the excess liquid. Squeeze out a couple of drops of liquid foundation on the back of your hand. Dip the wedge shaped sponge in the foundation liquid and daub it evenly on your face and neck. If you are comfortable using a powder based foundation use an appropriate foundation brush to lightly cover you face and neck with the powder.
Use A Highlighter Powder
After evening out the facial skin with a liquid or powder based foundation it is essential to give the skin a natural glow. To create a natural glow, highlighter powder is applied on the areas of the face where light tends to fall naturally. Typically highlighter powder is lightly applied on the cheeks, nose, forehead and the chin. If you are planning to wear a dress or blouse with a deep neckline, highlighter powder is applied on the cleavage as well.
For The Perfect Blush
In fashion makeup you are not going to use blush to enhance your natural beauty. Instead you are going to apply blush to create a bold look. Stay away from pretty pinks and old rose shades. Use deeper pinks, coral, gold, mauve and bronze shades on your cheeks for an awe inspiring look.
Create Sizzling Eyes
To create that shouldering hot look use mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow in bold shades. Don’t shy away from experimenting with vibrant eye makeup. Liquid eyeliners can create a bolder and more dramatic look than pencil liners. Choose eye liners in dramatic shades like eggplant, midnight blue or in evergreen shades. Eyeliners can be applied on the upper and lower eyelids to create a spectacular look.
Shimmer eye shadows are ideal for fashion makeup. Use shimmer eye shadows in metallic shades to create a lasting impression. Apply two contrasting shades of metallic eye shadow for a bolder look. Finally define your lashes with mascara in jet black or deep blue. If you are blessed with sparse natural lashes, you should put on some false lashes before applying the mascara.
For Full, Luscious Lips
Fashion makeup as mentioned earlier is all about creating a lasting style statement. There is no better way to create a memorable look than with a rich coating of blood red lipstick. Lipsticks in shades of red, plum, magenta or scarlet can complete your show stopper looks.
