Eradicate or minimize shine
A focus on a dark, romantic look was evident on this season’s catwalks and the vampire-esque influence trickled down from couture to beauty. Steer clear of heavy, black eye make-up to avoid the Nineties Goth look; rather go for a warm-tone blush when you are using this season’s deep oxblood shade on your lips. Apply a solid, dark-cherry colour or smudge on a berry for more of a stained look. Instantly glamorize and modernize the look by adding lots of gloss over your colour. Pat with a tissue to remove any excess shine et voilà – the perfect tint and finish are achieved.
