FACES OFF THE CATWALK
A look over eight international beauty trends,
highly recommended for Pakistani faces.
L’Oréal Revitalift Miracle Blur erases the appearance of lines, wrinkles and pores. Skin instantly looks and feels smooth, leaving a velvet soft matte finish that lasts all day. This summer no one will blame you for disliking foundation because with the new "blur creams" available you don’t require a thick coat of heavy foundation any more. These colourless creams will literally blur away the pores and wrinkles, offering your skin an instant smooth and soft appearance. It goes far beyond the naked skin effect and is more an instant Photoshop for your skin. This is technology in makeup art!
The crease resistant eye makeup formula of Lancôme Ombre Hypnôse Mono delivers smooth, even, controlled coverage every time. If you like clean, fresh and bright glazed looks, this trend is for you. This summer’s must-have shadow is great for young girls because it immediately evokes a sense of ethereal beauty. Apply the white powder and smudge the colour with a brush to the eyelid and brow bone. Your eyes will light up instantly!
Maybelline Master Smooky Khôl Liner is an ultra-saturated pigment formulation in a rich creamy liner If you are a wild and intense makeup lover, then why settle for the tame cat-eye style when you can achieve the look of a lioness? It completely encapsulates the eye with eyeliner and makes sure that the space in between the lashes is filled with inky blackness.
Clarins Mono Couleur Pink Sugar is a single shadow with a velvety texture that delivers pure, perfect illumination and exceptional hold. How about marshmallow eyes? Here is a sweet and easy style to apply. No mascara or eyeliner, simply first prepare the eyelid with foundation and then apply a pink shade. The secret is finding the appropriate product with a light weight and adaptable texture.
Max Factor Lipfinity Lipstick is a unique two-step lip color that delivers up to 12 hours of permanent colour. This is a cold and crisp tone that brings a lot of life to your lips and looks ultra modern too. Works great on dark skin or very thick lips, as it doesn’t add volume. Wear it with a neutral eye shadow and couple it with a nice light touch of mascara. Avoid it if your outfit is red, orange or yellow. Remember that your lipstick will run or stain the teeth when you have too many layers of product on. Just keep in mind that the amount must be controlled!
O.P.I’s Where Did Suzi’s Man Go? is an irresistible light mango orange creme colour to sweeten your nails. Are you up for a really trendy look? Oranges are the citrus colours of the season and they wear well on lips and nails alike. As a universal tone, which is flattering to everyone, the only requirement is to find an enamel and lip bar colour that matches.
Lily Collin’s big bold brows are her signature. L’ Écrin Sourcils by Guerlain includes three eyebrow powders, a highlighter (for sweeping under the brow) and a double applicator with a tiny spiral brush at one end. Every season there comes along an unconventional trend and with this summer comes the time to leave your eyebrows free. The less you pluck and the more natural in size and shape you keep them, the chances are they’ll frame your face better than any stylist or your own mastering eyelash hand could. If I still haven’t convinced you, then just remember that thick eyebrows make a face look younger.
