At the beginning of the year, star makeup artist Alena Lapina (@lapinamakeup), among whose clients Svetlana Bondarchuk, Yulia Nachalova, Pelageya, Ksenia Chilingarova, opened her own Art Up salon. We have already told why you should go to the new beauty space on Patrick, and now we asked Alena to share the best tools in her beauty case.
Moisturizing cream Magic Cream, Charlotte Tilbury
My first must have is Magic Cream by Charlotte Tilbury SPF 15. I use it as a base for makeup. It is absolutely deservedly called magic, as in a matter of minutes it moisturizes, refreshes the skin, makes it glowing and has a lifting effect! The latter is responsible for hyaluronic acid and a peptide complex in the composition. Other ingredients include rosehip and camellia oils and vitamin E that refresh even the most tired skin. Feelings are as if you slept for the prescribed 8 hours! When applied, the cream is quite dense, but then becomes weightless, therefore it is suitable for all skin types.
Highlighter Dew Drops Сoconut Gel, Marc Jacobs
It fits perfectly, gives a gentle glow and a moist skin effect. You can use it alone or mix with tone (mixes with absolutely any) or primer. The moisturizing effect is provided by as many as five components based on coconut (water, milk, alkanes, polysaccharides and perfume) and provitamin B5 in the composition.
Means for the skin around the eyes Photo Op, Smashbox
Positioned as a base, but I also use over tone. Gives radiance and brightens, fills in wrinkles (thanks to the collagen in the composition). The product contains a reflective powder that visually "lifts" the area around the eyes and hides imperfections.
Photo Op can also be applied to cheekbones, but keep in mind that it is quite light, so it will not be enough for fans of a wet effect.
Compact powder with tanning effect Illuminating Bronzing Powder, shade Maui, Bobbi Brown
Maui is the perfect peach shade that adheres beautifully to cold and warm skin tones. The product is very easy to shade. Perfect shine is achieved by pearlescent micro-particles that reflect light.
Cream shadows Cream and Powder Eye Color, shade Midnight sea, Tom Ford
I love all colors! I often use Midnight Sea as a base for shade and on my own. A noble brown shade with a greenish tint. Easy to blend, density and color intensity are easy to adjust. I apply the shadows with a fluffy blending brush.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyebrow Pencils
This pencil is in your work case and in your personal cosmetic bag. I like medium Brown. It gives the brows a very natural tint. The pencil is easy to use: you can draw as individual hairs, or blend over the entire surface of the eyebrows.
Foundation under the eyeshadow primer potion, Urban Decay
I, like all fanatical makeup artists, love trying everything new that appears in the industry. But there are products that invariably live in my beauty case. And the primer from Urban Decay is just one of them. I have been buying it for several years in a row.
Holds shadows perfectly, does not allow them to roll. Can be used alone for a wet shadow effect!
