The makeup of actresses is not that elaborated and appears natural and trendy. The recent beauty trend among actresses is to have a glowing skin and light contouring makeup to emphasize the volume of the face. Adding a thin eye line and voluminous lash makeup will help you have defined eyes.
▶ Actress Makeup, How to Wear It As A Daily Makeup
POINT 1 Glossy Glowing Skin
The core of a natural glowing skin is ‘moisture’. The key point is to make the skin appear as if water will burst from the skin once in contact. For this, doing a thorough basic skincare and using coverage products consisting of moisturizing components is recommended.
If layering multiple base items to create a natural glowing look is difficult for you, try using oils. Add a small amount of oil to your liquid foundation or apply a thin layer of a small amount of oil all over your face at the finishing stage of your makeup. The oil will not only provide glossiness but also will create a firm moisture layer that allows makeup to last longer.
POINT 2 Light Contouring
Contouring refers to a makeup technique using shades to create a more dimensional face. In order to do contouring, you need a ‘shading’ product that will add shadows on your face and a ‘highlighter’ product that can add luminosity to certain areas of your face.
Using a shading product will help you create natural shadows in different areas such as the hairline, nose, jawline, and the outline of your face. Then use a highlighter on the areas where the luminosity is needed such as the forehead, apple-zone, and the tip of the nose in order to create a dimensional face like those of celebrities. If you wish to achieve a natural contouring effect, it is good to use light powder type shading and highlighting products with high transparency that are easy to use.
POINT 3 Defined Eyes
Using an eye-liner is the best method to have defined eyes. But recently, natural looks became the trend. So techniques that consist of drawing an eye line as thin as possible or completely removing it are very popular..
In order to create defined eyes by emphasizing the eyelashes without drawing an eye line, you must take care for the lashes that are hidden towards the front and tail of the eyes as well. Use a curler to curl the lashes and apply thoroughly a mascara. If a regular mascara product is unable to reach the hidden lashes, try using a moving mascara with a curved brush. The item will make it easier even for beginners to take care of all the lashes, the hidden lashes as well as the under lashes, making it possible to create defined eyes.
