About where to look for the perfect tone for the fall and how to prepare your lips for applying matte lipsticks - in the new material of makeup artist and blogger Natalina.
1. Start using nutritional treatments
In the fall, many people change their skin condition. I know from myself that it is getting drier, so I change the care system and switch to nourishing creams. But here everything is individual, so draw up your scheme together with a beautician: perhaps you will be advised to return oils or products with acids.
As a makeup artist, moisturizing primers will also help. Foundation over them lays down much better. Plus, it is more persistent - the weather is changeable in autumn. My favorites are the Prep + Prime series from MAC (it has more than 20 products, which includes primers and fixatives in sticks, sprays and serums) and Bobbi Brown's Vitamin Enriched Face Base. The second base is a complete care with shea butter, carrot extract and vitamins A, C and E. I told about the best "color" base here.
2. Matte leather
A traditional fall replacement for radiant products is matte finish. I like as natural skin as possible, so I am switching to Diorskin Forever fluid. Not as shining as in summer, but also without the dullness that one wants only in deep winter. It is presented in 16 shades - you can easily find yours.
3. Shining accents
Don't forget to add some shining accents. For example, in the inner corners of the eye, above the eyebrows and slightly at the top of the cheekbones. To do this, you can use both a highlighter and champagne satin shades.
4. Don't be afraid to experiment
Autumn is a time of deep natural colors (many brands have chosen them for new collections). Maroon and eggplant smoky eyes or arrows are more appropriate than ever. And if you make "blueberry" lips and at the same time simply paint over the eyelashes (preferably with waterproof mascara), you will get a catwalk look (more options - here).
I love burgundy, blueberry, marsala lipsticks, and super trendy coffee and brown undertones. Specific examples are MAC Café au Chic or Lime Crime Matte Velvetines Lipstick Cashmere.
5. Take care of your lips
This is especially true for those who love matte lipsticks. Unfortunately, they dry their lips, and manufacturers cannot do anything about it: either a long-lasting matte finish, or a dozen of care components in the composition. I advise you to apply the balm at night in a thick layer like a mask. For these purposes, I use the famous Lucas Papaw and the Korean Mango Honey Lip Mask Frudia.
