Many of us beauty-lovers look to makeup gurus for inspiration for our next glam look. Others look to celebrities that grace the red carpet with their professionally-done makeup that we can only hope to replicate. Others look to YouTube tutorials or Pinterest. However, not many think to look to the runway when it comes to makeup inspiration. Fashion week is one of the best times to find a muse. Makeup artists that prep the models for the shows always incorporate the newest, hottest trends into their looks. Thus, you need look no further than the runway. Milan Fashion Week was no disappointment when it comes to the classiest looks. Here are a few tips on replicating this look from Carlos Gil in Milan Fashion Week.
Tarte Cosmetics Poreless Mattifying Primer
Before even touching the eye makeup, making sure the face is flawless is essential. The first step is always primer; it will moisturize your skin and prep the face for foundation. Once the foundation is applied, primer will work to keep it in place all day. This primer will blur over your pores, so that your face looks perfectly smooth. Not only does this product mattify and and “retexturize” your skin, it is also waterproof, in case you decide to take a plunge, or it starts to pour. It comes out clear so that the product can adjust to your skin tone, and become invisible under foundation. This is a must when it comes to the perfect face makeup.
Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation
After primer, use this foundation by Milk Makeup to make your face gorgeously tinted and smooth. Just like the Tarte primer, this foundation blurs pores and mattifies the face. The variety of colors this foundation comes in is a huge plus- it makes the process of finding the perfect shade for you that much easier. The best part of this product is that it’s silicone-free, vegan, and and oil-free, so that you know you’re only putting the best ingredients on your face. Milk Makeup suggests that you apply this foundation with their “Dab + Blend” Applicator for a crease-free finish. The packaging ensures that the product stays fresh and the color does not change.
Urban Decay Perversion Eyeliner
To begin with the eye look, you’ll need a fine-point, easy-to-use eyeliner pen. This eyeliner is the best product for achieving the cut crease that we see on the model. This fine tip, waterproof pen is loaded with Urban Decay’s darkest shade of ink, Perversion, to create a dramatic effect in any eye look. It’s steady flow of ink allows for even application throughout the wing. The liner lasts all day, as it is smudge-proof and won’t be affected by water. Use the liner to create the wing, beginning from the inner corner of the eye, follow the crease, and wing the line out in the outer corner.
