We saw celebrities strut their stuff in the MET gala. Twitter was on fire when people compared a particular star to Harry Potter’s dementors. Others hit social media to praise their idol. Who do you think became part of fashion history?
Most stars cemented their names as fashion icons. But one prominent name pointed out the social issue close to her heart. Whether you agree with her or not, it is not too late for you to join the red carpet. You can still join the who’s who of the fashion industry.
Before anything else, kindly clean your face thoroughly and apply your moisturizer. A clean and fully moisturized face is your insurance to aging well. It is like paying a retainer’s fee to a trusted car accident lawyer. You know that you will need her help in the future.
Barely There Makeup Look
It is not surprising that female members of royal families always turn to this rule. They do not want their makeup to compete with the extravagant pieces of jewelry that they wear. But if you are afraid that donning a barely-there makeup look will make you look plain, fret not! It will amplify your sophistication.
Again, the critical part of any makeup routine is cleansing and moisturizing. We saw the royals rock the no-makeup look. All of them say that they achieved a natural glow by maintaining a strict skincare routine. If they believe in such a thing, then we, mere mortals, should abide by it too.
Once your face fully absorbs the moisturizer, you can start with the foundation or concealer. Do not smother yourself with these beauty products. Let your natural beauty shine through. Apply a small amount to the area that you want to cover.
You can now work on your eyes. If you want to follow the footsteps of Kate Middleton, you can mimic her subtle smokey eye makeup. She uses gel eyeliner for her eyes. Then she uses two to three eye shadow colors to get her signature look.
Now, let us move on to your lips. We often see the royal ladies use neutral colors. But they sometimes amp up their glam by applying bold colors on their lips. You can stick to nudes because the mask covers your lips. Or you can try something daring.
This look is a slightly laid version of the previous makeup technique. With the right attitude and hairdo, you will rock this look. Throw in some flowing maxi dress and flat sandals; you will be the queen boho chic.
We can never emphasize enough the importance of thoroughly cleaning your face and putting as much moisturizer as you can. Although we said that this is a laidback look, it does not mean that you will forego the preparation. If you are going to the beach, you must add another layer of protection. That is sunscreen.
After your skin absorbs the sunscreen, you can apply foundation. We suggest that you skip the powders because it clogs the pores. We recommend using BB cream for this. Or better, why not use tinted sunscreen? This product will allow you to apply it several times without giving you a cakey texture.
You can achieve a beautiful summer tan even before stepping on the beach. Once applying the BB cream or the tinted sunscreen, put some bronzer and highlighter. Please do not go crazy with these products. Less, you will end up looking like an Oompa Loompa.
You do not have to be one of the elven princesses to rock this look. It can become part of your zoom meeting repertoire. Again, let us start with a freshly cleaned and moisturized face. This step is your greatest weapon against aging.
We highly recommend applying primer. As modern women, we want to life-proof our makeup. The primer will help keep things in place.
Once done, you can work on your eyes. We recommend using eyeshadows that have a silvery effect. Apply it to the base of your eyelids. If you are using silver, blend a slightly darker shade on your creases. Doing this will create some depth in your eyes.
To make things more magical, you can dust some light pink (or any pale colors) on the center of your eyelids. Now, you can finish it with some mascara. For this look, kindly skip the mattifying products. We recommend using makeup that gives you a dewy finish.
You do not need to put on makeup to be beautiful. On the contrary, your makeup should boost your confidence. You are a woman, and the world is your oyster.
