WHAT: Two important make-up beauty trends to rock this year. One look is super natural with glowing skin -- perfect to wear during the day, and the other is an edgy update for the evening. Both are inspired by seasoned make-up artists straight from NYFW.
WHY: So you can be up to date with your make-up looks from day to night!
TIP: For the glowing natural look, use white eyeliner inside the lower lash rim to make your eyes pop. Then add a bit of brown liner under the lash line. For the cat eye look, use a eyeliner marker pen for better control.
Get the Look: Natural and Glowing
This look focuses on the skin and requires products that emphasize a healthy, dewy glow. Use a moisturizing liquid foundation and soft, natural colors with pink undertones for lips and cheeks.
Start with a rich face moisturizer. My favorite one to use for this look is this one by Shiseido.
Always use a primer like this one from Laura Mercier so your foundation goes on smoother. It will also give you an extra glow.
A good foundation is key to this look. I love Sheer Glow Foundation from NARS for glowing skin.
Always remember to cover and highlight under eye circles. My go-to product is YSL's Touche Éclat.
Add white eyeliner on the inside rim of your eyelid only followed by a brown liner on the lower lash line. Dab the brown liner across for very natural application.
Time for blush!
Add one coat of mascara to your top lashes only. Then highlight your brows with a brow pencil like this one from Christian Dior.
Now for a natural berry-toned lip.
Add highlighter to cheeks and lids. The NARS multi use stick in Copacabana does double duty!
Get the Look: Cat Eye Perfected
There were some gorgeous cat eyes on the run way this year at NYFW! The one shown here is quite dramatic but gives us inspiration on how we can incorporate it into our own evening make-up look!
In order to master the cat eye, choose a liquid liner that is in the form of a marker. Flare the liner out and up at the end of the upper eyelid and use a large mirror to keep even on both sides.
Be sure to flick the marker up in the corner to the desired thickness -- a thicker winged out line will be more dramatic. For extra control, pull your corner eye skin taught with one hand and draw on a straight line with the other. Add another coat of mascara to your top and bottom lashes, brighten the apples of your cheeks with more blush and you are good to go!
