My second make-up blog Helenaronnblad is filled with new New Year's make-up from time to time throughout December, and yesterday I made up Miska's mother to show you a New Year's make-up that is not on my young face for once :)
Before and after!
Make-up that lifts the eyes
Oili has really nice big eyelids, but they have started to hang a little with age so I chose to do a make-up that highlights and lifts the gaze, and which is both light and dark as completely dark make-up can feel a little too hard on people who do not usually put on make-up. Often.
To lift the gaze, you can apply all the dark above the eye, and not put makeup at all on the underside (I have not put anything at all under the eye, Oili has naturally dark lashes so they actually look painted already). Filling in the eyebrows, brightening the innermost part of the eyelid and just below the eyebrow also has an uplifting effect that gives a more alert look.
Eyelashes are also good for lifting the gaze, unfortunately we got in such a hurry that I only had time to paint mascara without donating so much more. But curved lashes (and preferably natural false eyelashes if you do not have a lot of lashes yourself) are recommended! Then automatically all sharp transitions on the eye shadow will also look more diffuse when you look straight ahead.
Choice of eye shadows
I have chosen to use almost exclusively completely matte eye shadows, as shimmer can emphasize fine lines. But I have finished with a shimmery shadow right at the bottom of the eyelid (where Oili has no lines) plus a really small glittery glitter dab a little on all the light.
If you dabble in just a little glitter, it is not around all lines, so then it usually goes well without them being highlighted, as long as you have, as I said, founded with a matte shade.
I also chose a nice dark purple color, which is colorful at the same time as it is dark and gloomy. Super nice!
I have not painted the lips at all, but I have highlighted the contours with the help of the basic make-up.
Foundation, Yag mineral Mineralfoundation in the shade Soft Cream.
