“Dark Lips in Velvet Matt is the hottest trend this season”
The Velvet Matt dark trend was not a surprise on the Catwalks for Fall/Winter 2015, the darker Gothic influences has been seen the latest seasons. At the same time the darker lip trend is a bit romantic and dramatic, the dark red color encases the illusion of perfect porcelain skin. Are you ready to go down the darker path? IsaDora’s International Makeup artist Stephan shows how to create a trendy chic autumn look with silky smooth skin and velvet matt lips:
STEP 01. BASE
To get a silky smooth and long lasting result it’s important to start by applying a thin layer of Primer, Stephan used Protected Face Primer Tinted. When the primer has soaked into the skin it’s time to add a bit of foundation, Nude Cushion Foundation instantly fuses with your skin and leaves that nude, perfect finish that we’re after. Apply by pressing the sponge applicator into the air cushion. For more coverage – press harder into the air cushion to get more foundation, then sweep over your face with the sponge applicator from the center and working outwards.
STEP 02. LIPS
Start by priming your lips with concealer or foundation and powder your lips afterwards. This will neutralize your own lip color and make the lipstick color appear better. Add Perfect Lipliner to the outer edges of your lips and blend lightly and fill in the entire lip. Then apply Twist-up Matt Lips Purple Prune allover your Lips. The Lipstick is easy to use and it has a special shaped tip for a precise definition of the lip contour.
STEP 03: EYES & BROWS
You don’t need to use the same color throughout the whole brow, play around with lighter and darker shades to create a natural shape. Perfect Brows Duo Compact Powder contains the ultimate color combination for all types’ of brows. The kit comes with applicator brush which makes it easier to distribute the color evenly across the brow. For maximum lash volume, use mascara Grand Volume Lash Styler.
