Expert Tips for Minimal Makeup

A bronze shimmer or minimal makeup creates a more natural vibe that transfers well, notes Meredith Baraf, a popular makeup artist in New York City. The secret to  this look requires a modest product collection  that goes well beyond cosmetics. First, focus on skin health. “When your skin looks rested, hydrated, and happy,  makeup can enhance your natural beauty,” says Baraf. 카지노사이트

Start with a clean cloth

One of the most important parts of creating a flawless, understated look is starting with freshly cleaned leather. Work with a moisturizing cleanser that will dissolve makeup and impurities on your skin while  giving your skin an antioxidant boost. IMAGE Skincare VITAL C Hydrating Facial Cleanser does this with ingredients like vitamin C and superoxide dismutase that fight  free radicals that lurk in the environment and cause oxidative stress in the skin.  

 Also contains Saponaria, a purifying plant extract with soothing properties. 

 Adding Hydration 

To combat dryness and keep skin as supple as possible so  makeup looks smooth, it’s best to increase your hydration. Make sure you use a light moisturizer that isn’t too heavy but has a rich  texture, like Sunday Riley’s ICE Ceramide Moisturizer. The formula has been enriched with ceramides and vitamin F that help protect the skin’s protective barrier and maintain proper moisture levels. It also contains coconut to reduce moisture loss and red algae to retain moisture. 

For  even more hydration, use SkinCeuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier—its key ingredient, Hyaluronic Acid, can absorb 1,000 times its weight in water! It even goes a step further by containing a purple wrinkle extract that preserves the skin’s hyaluronic acid levels. 온라인카지노사이트

 Protect with SPF 

If you really care about skin health, you shouldn’t leave the house without SPF. Tara Dowburd,  makeup artist and founder of Make-Up Therapy in Los Angeles, recommends using a color-correcting cream with a high SPF, like Supergoop’s CC Screen 100% Mineral CC Cream SPF 50. Along with SPF protection, it’s made with an antioxidant-rich, mineral-based  formula that not only protects skin from the sun, but also gives  skin a radiant glow, evens skin  tone and leaves a non-greasy finish.

Set your base

To achieve a smooth look to apply the rest of your makeup on top of, use a  foundation that’s gentle on your skin (eg, one that won’t clog pores or cause breakouts). “It helps even out  skin tone and  helps  protect  skin from  pollution and toxins,” says Dowburd. She recommends applying a loose powder, like bare Minerals ORIGINAL Loose Mineral Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15, with a powder brush. The benefit of powder foundation is that it doesn’t clog pores or cause breakouts. This one  in particular from bare Minerals is made with non-chemical mineral ingredients that include SPF to  protect  skin from the sun’s harmful rays. 

Gives a subtle shade 

If a radiant look is important to you, don’t forget the highlighter. “Highlights make  the makeup appear more lavish and add sharpness when the light hits those bright spots,” says New York-based makeup artist Jessika Bekteshi. She’s a big fan of RMS Beauty’s Master Radiance Base for its ability to lighten skin and give it a natural glow.”Use your finger to gently apply the highlighter to your cheekbones, inner corners of your eyes and cupid’s bow, making sure to blend it in for an even, natural look,” she says.

Take care of your eyebrows 

You certainly don’t want to forget your eyebrows for a timelessly minimalist make-up look. “Eyebrows frame the face and are just as important as the rest of the makeup,” says Bekteshi. You can easily fill, shape and smooth them  with a product like the Kevyn Aucoin Precision Brow Pencil. “In addition to the wide range of colors, this pencil is very thin, which allows for  more precise and controlled application,” says Dowburd.”Plus, it glides  and holds up beautifully.”

Accentuate your strengths

To give your skin that tanned glow and emphasize natural features, apply some pigment to your cheekbones. We recommend  Kjaer Weis The Cheek Collective as it has a variety of cheek products to help you achieve a natural glow. A subtle sweep of Kjaer Weis blush on the cheeks sets the blush in place. Available in a variety of shades, it’s enriched with skin-loving ingredients like moisturizing jojoba oil, gardenia extract with antioxidant properties, and rsa rubiginosa seed oil that help fight signs of premature aging.

Add Finishing Touch

Apply a thin layer of waterproof mascara to define your eyes. “There’s nothing quite like a woman with soft mascara accentuating her beautiful flirty lashes,” says Brandy Gomez-Duplessis,  makeup artist and co-founder of Entitled Beauty in Hawaii. For best results, use a mascara that offers both volume and length, like Wander Beauty’s Mile High Club Volume and Length Mascara. Contains castor oil that moisturizes the lashes, peach leaf extract that prevents brittleness and trehalose that strengthens the strands. 바카라사이트
