AFW MAKE UP TREND
The no-makeup, barely-there look has been a mainstay on the runways for a while now. It is a look that resonates with most women because of its effortless and youthful appeal. When the all-natural makeup trend first caught on, contours of the face were the focus, but lately, there has been some modifications to this trend. Instead of creating contours, illuminating or strobing helps to define facial features. Makeup experts insist that the only way to pull off this look is to achieve flawless, glowing skin. At the recently Arise Fashion Week, the runways were lit with models spotting this beauty trend. The official beauty sponsors, House of Tara, made sure to apply this same look to suit a variety of style choices, and the results were stunning.
We went backstage, to speak to the brand’s Head of Artistry, Rhema Akabuogu, and she gave us a few quick and easy steps to achieve the modern pared down look.
SKIN: Cover problem areas with Tara Medium Coverage Concealer. Apply only on problem areas and blend well. Tip: make sure to choose a shade that’s closest to your natural skin tone.
CHEEKS: Create the illusion of refreshed and moisturized skin with a highlighting powder. Highlighting elevated parts of the face, adds a youthful glow to your look.
EYES: Open up the eyes by lining the upper eye with Tara liquid liner pen. Curl lashes and top with one to two coats of Tara fibre fuse mascara. Remember to keep eye makeup at a minimum when doing the barely-there look.
BROWS: Groomed brows are just as essential as good skin when creating makeup looks. Create full, well-shaped brows with Tara retractable pencil. Choose hues that go well with skin tone and hair color.
LIPS: A hint of color on the lips creates a youthful and freespirited vibe. It also helps when your lip tube comes with benefits like sun protection and hydration. Try Tara Nehanda lip stain and a clear lip-gloss.
