What eyebrows are in fashion, what shade of highlighter and bronzer do you need and how to emphasize the contour of the lips? Alexandra Kiriyenko - on how to quickly fix common mistakes in makeup.

“I’m of the opinion that it’s better not to slightly finish the makeup than to redo it. In this article I will tell you how to achieve the effect of thick eyebrows and how to highlight advantages, not disadvantages, using strobing and contouring."
Graphic dark eyebrows
I often see girls make their eyebrows too dark and graphic. It used to be in vogue, but even then, makeup artists strove for naturalness, trying to make them more fluffy.
Now the trend is for careless, voluminous, soft eyebrows. If yours are not thick, first go through the tinting gel - to give the eyebrows volume and color. Then take a pencil or shadows - they will help fill in the gaps. The eyebrows can be more or less defined, but still leave some haze and a small space between the hairs.
The darkest color should be at the height of the arch and go to the tip. Make the beginning weightless. For girls who have hairs at the beginning of their eyebrows, I recommend not painting them at all - step back a centimeter and move from the dais to the tip.
For eyebrows, I like Anastasia Beverly Hills' DipBrow lipstick: very long-lasting and available in a large number of shades - you will definitely find yours.
Probably this mistake comes from the West. Girls apply the highlighter in such a way that their face shines like a pancake. Only radiant powder can be actively used - apply to the T-zone, cheekbones, nose. If you don't have enough shine, add, with a bare touch, a highlighter on the convex part of the cheekbone. An important rule of thumb: if you have a large nose or a hump, a highlighter in this area will highlight what you are trying to hide.
Highlighters come in different shades. Warm - peach, gold, cold - silver, white. If you are back from hot countries, a warm shade will accentuate your tan. A cold shade only for snow white - it will look gray on dark skin.
Auburn bronzer for contouring
He shouldn't be too active. Slightly "pushed through" the cheekbone, made the oval a little clearer. To do this, you do not need to take an active red bronzer - you will already notice in the mirror how unnatural it is.
One of my must-haves is a double bronzer and highlighter palette from Charlotte Tilbury. I recommend it to girls with dark skin. I love it for its durability and natural shades. Lay well on top of each other.
For fair skin, try MAC Pro Longwear Blush (Baby Don't Go).
I also love The Sculpting Powder Kevin Aucoin in Medium. This is a sculptor of all times and peoples! Non-reddish and easy to apply. Highly pigmented - you need to brush a little bit.
Active lip contour
Girls who enlarge their lips try to emphasize the contour. Everything should be in moderation. If you've injected with fillers, your best friend is a neutral lipstick with no additional contours. You can highlight the checkmark above the upper lip with a highlighter.
If you have natural lips, but you want to visually enlarge them, make a contour. I recommend natural pencils like The Flesh Tine Lip Liner by Kevin Aucoin in Medium. Easy to apply and blend. Does not dry lips - contains jojoba oil. The main thing is to shade the contour, the borders should not be clear.
