Smokey Eye Makeup with a Wet Effect

One of the makeup styles that have always been present is the smoky eye effect. It’s a dramatically dark makeup, which will virtually completely change any look. This ‘effect’ is just great not only an ordinary girl and for a supermodel in a fashion show. What’s more, in case you add a touch of bright over the lid you can transform your look into a sexy style magazine cover look. The smoky eye is absolutely the perfect makeup effect which will transform your look creating an instant sense of style. You should start with using a black pencil liner along the lash line. You do not have to be too precise – just get it smudged into the lashes. So don’t be afraid if you mess it up. It is not supposed to be perfect. If you do that right, the rest will follow.

Makeup with Eyeliner and Red Lip

The eyeliner has developed over the years to become an essential element in basically any makeup. It enlightens the look giving a glamorous and sexy look. What’s more, when combined with intense red lip the result is just great. It’s an effect which can be worn for the day, during the night or for a party. Simple, effortless and beautiful!

Would you ever wear a look such as this one? I usually shy away from red lipsticks however I am so inspired by this look I will definitely try it! I especially like winging out my eyeliner since I believe it highlights the eyes. Would you do this at night or day? I would go with night and a quite simple mini black dress.

Radiant Skin Makeup

The radiant skin makeup is a makeup which literary any professional makeup artist has to know to perfection. In this makeup your skin is the star. The final result is a naturally beautiful skin which has been enhanced, highlighted and corrected. A face free from imperfections which looks very natural, fresh and soft! A makeup in which the focus is your skin’ beauty and the eyes are lightly highlighted. Radiant skin makeup is a makeup to be worn alone naturally or which can be complemented with almost any other kind of makeup. It’s becoming quite trendy and it has come to stay.

These days the trends are transparent, natural skins with light makeup foundation. Foundations have improved due to technological improvements. Summer is almost here and it’s time to rock some brighter eye shadows for that nice warm weather that’s coming.

Ready for a new skin?

Creative Makeup Ideas: Textured, Monochromatic and Seasonal

Textured Makeup

A creative and stylish makeup is done with textures in which you can use several different beauty products and textures. You should combine liquid, cream and powder products. For a textured makeup I like to use a dark black eye-shadow and a synthetic applicator. Then I start with blending and building a perfect base to later create textures using the shadows. Then using figment I start applying each of the pigments on the eye-outline to create a trendy and gorgeous makeup. Also, you can use reddish pigments, metallic golden pigments and many different colored pigments in order to create a good texture for a cool and sexy makeup.

Monochromatic Makeup

Monochromatic makeup is a really great makeup in which you can use several different tones of the very same color. In case you chose orange as your color you’re going to use color like dark orange, light orange and pure orange. For this makeup I usually highlight the eyes using orange tones which make the very best contrast with the skin texture. Sometimes I even choose orange pigments to highlight the look even more. In the cheek bones I usually apply a blush in orange tones. And for the lips I use quite intense gloss to follow this monochromatic trend. You can also add a touch of imagination to your makeup using templates and little dots made of contact paper in the same makeup tones. 

Seasonal Makeup - Fall/Winter

One other sexy makeup is the one with the rocker eyeliner. Here both the eyeliner thickness and finishing has to be thicker, straighter and in direction to your brow bone. Sometimes I use the black eyeliner using a very thin liner brush for an even more defined line. What’s more, I apply thick mascara for this rocker look. In order to highlight the inner corner of the eye you should apply a light colored shadow right from the inner corner of the eye. You should pay attention to the eyebrows and brush them gently too. Of course, don’t forget about lining the lips. I use a maroon lip liner from the corner of the mouth carefully to follow my lip line. Next I blend the liner using lipstick from the center and smudging outwards. In order to give it an even sexier touch you can use transparent lip gloss in the center of your lips. Finally, you should add a super straight hair style done with a ceramic hair style and a ribbon hair net.
