Modern or Classy? Evening make-up look

The new look of the evening makeup

Classical or avant-garde?

How’s changing the classical evening makeup look? There’s a lot of different kinds of makeup and it gives vest range of capabilities and inspiration. Is it only an evening makeup or something more?

Women love the classical evening makeup.

 Creative directors of the fashion industry create top looks and celebrities wear this one for a red carpet parties. It’s easy to change the classical evening makeup look. False lashes, dripping lips, brocade or pigments make your look more glamour.

What’s on top?

Eyes, lips and lashes – should be the most emphasized in the context of complete look. Brocade, metallic shadows, fresh look and the berry lips are trends in makeup for winter 2017/2018. You can use the highlight for the neckline, eyes, temples and lips. Apply brocade using Nyx Glitter Primer or Duo glue. Pigments are more colored with Duraline. Gold leaf is used as an alternative for the brocade, to apply use an oil products, ex. amazing Glow Enhancer from Elcie Cosmetics.

Nutrition goes first

Make-up should be perfect and suitable for the skin. It will stay on the face for a very long time, exposed to stress, sweat, artificial light, flesh or cameras. Prepare the skin perfectly. Cleaning and moisturizing are the most important. You can use the nutrition oil and make a massage of the face.

News in the classical make-up look

Top of the top in 2017/2018? Fresh look and highlighting almost every part of the face is the priority in the newest makeup looks. Glow and the natural effect of the face – make-up no make-up – are on top.

Thank you, Makeup Trendy!!

You can see the review in here  and buy e-book in here.  It is a book about makeup, business, love and life.  This book is the answer: How to be succeed in a beauty industry? How L’oreal i Helena Rubinstein create the empire?

Did you know that a lot of polish people were a great businessman in a beauty industry? Maksymilian Faktorowicz from Zduńskia Wola, known as Max Factor was founder of a first make-up studio in Los Angeles. He was the inventor of a word ‘make-up’ and won Oscar for the characterization. He invented a pan stick and was creator of a conception of tv make-up.

Helena Rubinstein was a Jewish girl from Poland. She opened her first cosmetics store in Australia and started to sell the luxury cram based on the oils. She invented a lipstick and her products were loved by women in all over the world.

Finally, the most contemporary, polish businessman from Przemyśl – Wojciech Inglot. He created an INGLOT. He invent the Freedom System. The system gives women the possibility of create their own color palette.

Eugene Schueller was a French pharmacist, who discover the first safe hair dye. He was a scientist but he didn’t like work at the university. He loves working on his own, even 18 hours a day.

The story of makeup shows, that only a hard work and a determination can gives you a success. Cosmetics are connected with economy, politics and industry. Through the second World War all companies were stopped but after the war women wanted to feel beautiful. Entrepreneurship and uncompromising attitude gives the success.

Color in bridal make-up

The very common thing is to avoid colors in the bridal make-up. Why is that? Color is the main thing in make-up generally. You can’t be afraid of color – trust your make-up artist and choose the one which is best for you.

Color in photographic make-up

There is no rules in this kind of make-up! Pink shadows which you see at the photos is the INGLOT pigment powder. It seems to be very intensive but remember about the flash effect. I apply the color with classic black eye liner but you can apply it with a fluffy brush on the cheekbones, lips and temple. Use a different catwalk colors like green, blue or orange. It must be perfect!
