As Chanel’s cosmetics spokesperson, you will always find the actress setting trends wearing edgy-chic make-up.
Metallic is a versatile eye-shadow option and easy to pair with most styles. However, if you want to make a statement, take your lead from Kristen’s futuristic look to grab attention. The secret here is the application, instead of following the eye shape, the make-up artist opted for an unusual geometric format. Maybe not your first choice for everyday wear but it’s a great look for a party!
The best match to a daring eye-shadow is without a doubt dark eye-liner and loads of black mascara. If your lashes are sparse or short, don’t be afraid to use fakes. The new generation of fake lashes look natural (when you don’t pick extra-long ones) and are easier to apply.
Good news, the two-tone hair trend has made dark roots in blonde hair acceptable (I can hear fireworks!). Not long ago it was considered lack of grooming, today it looks cool and it is even welcome at red carpet events. The easiest way to keep it looking good is to maintain a short hair length, it can be neatly styled or take a rebel turn in no time! Just keep in mind that this trend looks best when the dark root is just a few tones darker than the bleached ends.
Balance is the key when aiming for stylish or natural make-up, so if you want to draw focus to your eyes, opt for nude lips and vice-versa. Tip: when going for toned-down lips, add at least a bit of shine to create a slight contrast with your skin colour.
Years ago, the best way to get a healthier look was to pinch your cheeks till they turned red. Today, an array of blushes in powder, liquid or stick form are available to do the trick. Apply following your cheek bone for the best result and add some extra shine with a highlighter.
