I apologize for being a bit halfway through the update lately, both here on the blog and on instagram.
This is partly because it has been an incredible amount at the salon, but also because I also have a few hours less than usual there because in February I am a substitute at a high school in Uppsala. It is a stylist line and I agree as you probably understand in the makeup lessons :)
It's only Thursdays and Fridays, but in any case it means that the rest of the work week is completely out of balance and I only have time to do what is most urgent all the time, it feels like.
Anyway, today I showed the students how I do a whole makeup from start to finish and how important it is to get good base details for the whole to look good. And by the base I mean not only the skin but also an even contouring, well-shaped eyebrows, lashliner, etc. Things that are important to know as a makeup artist and that are great to get feedback on.
And a little fitting to today's theme, today I had a make-up with only lashliner and mascara on the eyes, marked lips and well-shaped eyebrows. Simple but nice and details that must look good for the rest to be nice.
Hope you like this simple look too :)
The base is fast and comprehensive with first cream concealer and then mineral foundation. After that a light contouring and both a matte highlighter to sculpt and one with luster to give glow.
Surely I got to the brows nicely today? It is both with a brow pencil and with fibers that you brush on the straws, it is a news from Maybelline that I will blog about asap! So cool!
Lashliner is such a good make-up detail for all make-ups! Read more about how to do it in my previous beauty guide :) It is good when you are "unmade up" and want to look fitter, for mascara to make the lashes look fuller, instead of eyeliner - perfect for people with droopy eyes and hooded eyes, and people with short lashes. If you have a wide eyeliner, the lashes look shorter. Or with eyeliner to get the eyeliner more intense, otherwise there can easily be spaces between the lashes and the eyeliner, where the skin shines through.
Then I finished with mascara and a little light eye shadow in the corner of the eye.
Sharp lip contours with lip pencil and a really glossy lipstick in a bright color on it, yummy! I have painted about a mile outside the lips and love it, not mainly because they look bigger but because I get more of this nice lipstick :)
