( Ed: This was in French, so please forgive our translation!)
1.The Sports Make-up Look
Eyelashes, eyelids and eyebrows are slightly greased. The important point here is the mouth.The red selected, should be a beautiful tone franc or pulling on the yellow or the blue, and applied with a brush to the contours retaining all their sharpness.
Daytime: Base powder make-up city: basic beige sheen sun powder.
Red cheeks – rosy red lipstick – sky pink eye-shadow – dark blue eyebrow pencil.
2. The City Make-up Look
For the city, the problem is different.The foundation must remain clear, but still in a dewy look !
So we spread out a little rouge after the application of the base powder, then the face is plenty of powder then dust away any excess powder.
The eyebrows are simply lubricated, carefully brushed they are highlighted with a gray pencil which also serves to raise the corner of the eye.
Eyelashes and eyelids are rouged.
The mouth is masked with a red rose.
Ensemble make-up should remain very light.
3. The Evening Make-up Look
The must have evening make-up look is pale pale pale ….In accentuating the eyebrows, the eyes and mouth, you can change completely the aspect of the face.Very pale is obtained by a base powder and a barely tinted powder.
It removes red cheeks.
Eyebrows, thickened and dark gray pencil – eyelids cut throat purple – eyelashes highlight the corners with mascara.
The green eyes look contrasts wonderfully with the facial pallor.
As for the mouth, use red “parma” lipstick – to achieve almost an red violet.
That’s all !
