A friend rushed to me for help. Tomorrow is a meeting of former classmates, and here is the problem: she significantly gained weight from the time of the eleventh class to the joy of her rivals. What to do?
Preparing for meeting classmates
The option not to go to the meeting was not considered. So many years have not seen, and even when they gather!
How to hide figure flaws with the help of clothes – a friend came up with. But the face! Though close the veil.
But why do we need a veil, if there is a visage?
I never considered myself a good makeup artist. Rather, I love it when someone else paints me. This allows you to look at makeup in new ways. However, friends often ask me to make them a make-up, throwing up new puzzles. So I faced a new puzzle solution.
A full face is not a fault. Imagine the scope for creativity! On the narrow cheekbones, you will only accelerate to apply blush, once – already ears. And on the full face you can draw and draw!
It was a hot season. As a rule, obese women have increased perspiration, so I used a makeup base with a mattifying effect.
This avoided unpleasant shine on the face. I took the basis of two adjacent shades: a little darker and a little lighter. Of these two, made the third, mixing the factory colors.
From my point of view, mentally drawing an oval of an ideal face shape, I applied a light tone within it, a dark one outside the borders. The third mix tinge masked the transition boundary. The base was ground until it was time to make the transition impossible to distinguish. The face visually narrowed.
The resulting effect is fixed with powder. Also two tones. Powder helped to make the lower cheeks, chin, cheekbones darker, visually highlighting the center of the face from forehead to chin. In addition, if the moisture from the face tread through the base, powder will help hold it.
Focus on the eyes
A feature of the girlfriend’s face was puffy cheeks, so I focused on the eyes to divert attention from the cheeks.
Highlighted the eye contour with a black pencil, shaded the lines with dark shadows. Bright matte shadows inflicted on the entire area of the century to the eyebrows. Made the transition from light brown on the eyelid to pale beige at the bend of the eyebrow.
Brows highlighted using matte black shadows. On the one hand, the darker color draws attention to the eyebrows, distracting from the cheeks. On the other hand, the absence of a sharp contour gives a natural look to make-up.
Mascara used black color, bulk. This principle works here – the brighter the eyes are highlighted with the help of shadows, the more dense the mascara should be used so that the eyelashes are not lost against the background of the eyes.
Blush caused two shades: beige on the place where the thin face should have hollows of cheeks. Stripes from the temples to the lips. Shaded. Pale pink – on the upper part of the cheekbones, so that the face does not look too pale behind a layer of makeup foundation and powder.
For lips used lipstick caramel color. Also matte. From fashionable shine had to be abandoned in order not to give extra volume to the lips.
Recalling that the state of make-up must be constantly monitored and providing a friend with a compact powder and matting wipes, I sent her to meet graduates.
The appearance of a friend made a sensation. For which I received sincere thanks.
Unfortunately, a friend did not allow me to upload photos of my artwork. Therefore, it only remains for me to describe the process as precisely as possible.
Do you often resort to the help of other people when creating makeup?
