In this moment, some of the most famous makeup artists are giving it their all at Fashion Week, creating next season’s top trends and preparing models for the show. But, most women say that the favourite part of this amazing show, which takes place two times a year, is learning all the amazing new tips which we’d never have seen elsewhere. In this article you can find 10 tricks which you can use immediately in your own beauty routine.
- Give your eyebrows a naturally lush look.
Lisa Houghton, makeup artist at MAC Cosmetics, showed her tricks at Tadashi Shoji. She applied an eyeshadow one shade lighter than models’ color of hair to enhance their eyebrows. You can give your eyebrows more natural look by choosing a lighter shade.
- You should avoid streaky nail polish.
Deborah Lipmann, celebrity manicurist, explains that the key to layering polishes is waiting in between layers but the problem is that nobody wants to hear this advice. She showed her tricks at Badgley Mischka, where she mixed two shades La Vie En Rose and Blue Orchid, on models’ nails. She recommends applying thinner layers, because it will never dry if you start applying too much on the first round. Her advice is to wait a couple of minutes in between layers.
- Make your eyes appear bigger by switching up the eyeliner.
Zac Posen, celebrity makeup professional, paired graphic black eyeliner along the top eyelashes MAC Superslick Liquid Eye Liner with smudged black pencil along the lower eyelash line. He also used nude pencil to line the waterline. He didn’t connect the black liners at the corners. The result? He explains that the black won’t close your eye up and that will create a larger eye.
- Create a ponytail that will last a while.
Rodney Cutler, beauty stylist at Cushnie et Ochs and manager at Cutler Salon, recommends that you should tilt your head back a bit as you pull your hair into a ponytail. He explains that this will help you to create a tighter hold at the nape of the neck.
- Add rock and roll edge to your wavy hair.
Odile Gilbert, beauty stylist showed her tricks ate Jill Stuart. She used Kérastase Mousse Bouffante to coat the models’ hair. After that, she used her fingers to twist their hair. She explains that you should twist your hair and then leave your ends straight. She also explains that if we curl at the end, it is too cute.
- You should make your bobby pins invisible.
Didier Malige, hairstylist at René Furterer, showed his tricks at Band of Outsiders. He used an emery board to sand bobby pins before using them to secure models’ swept hair. He explains that pins will not pick up the light on the runway when they are matte.
- You should create a perfectly imperfect pink lip.
Many makeup artists say that your lips don’t have to be perfectly lined. Polly Osmond, makeup professional, showed her tricks at Christian Siriano. She diffused the outline of the lip color – Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick Muse using a lip brush to blend to get a soft effect.
- Use powder pigment to intensify your lipstick.
Tom Pecheux, makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics, showed his tricks at Altuzarra. To create a matte texture and deepen the color, he used MAC Pro Basic Red Pigment to top models’ red lipstick. Also, by doing this you will help your lipstick last much longer.
- Use a lip crayon as a blush.
What’s the simplest way to make sure your lip and cheek colors coordinate? Hannah Murray, celebrity makeup artist, showed this trick at Helmut Lang. She used a lip color as a blush. She used NARS Satin Lip Pencil, Golshan. She said that she put it on the back of her hand and then rub it on the cheeks using her finger.
- Make soft curls without the frizz.
Instead of brushing out recently curled hair you should use a comb with wide teeth to soften the texture. Jeanie Syfu, beauty stylist at TRESemmé, showed this trick at Jenny Peckham. She explained that using a comb instead of brush will leave the separation in the curls because no woman wants it to go frizzy. She also explained that you should use lots and lots of TRESemmé Thermal Creations Mousse to prep your hair.
