BEST NATURAL LIP STAINS SPRING 2017
SUN-STRIPPING IS THE NEW "STROBING" FOR 2017- HOW TO DO IT RIGHT!
SUN STRIPPING is a new BRONZING TECHNIQUE that makes you look as though you've been hanging out on the beach for a few weeks as opposed to working the days away under those those horrible and ghostly office ultra-violet light bulbs that tend to give most migraine headaches.
SUN-STRIPPING is a refreshing and natural new way to apply your bronzing powder and our opinion, we think it looks so much better than the traditional bronzing techniques that we've seen and used in the past.
Simply put, use a contouring/blush brush and just lightly brush on a matte bronzing powder and blend your bronzing powder from cheek to cheek (all the way up to the side temples) and across the middle bridge of the nose for this sexy, sun-kissed look.
Always use a matte bronzing powder if possible and one that doesn't appear too gold or too orange. You want to use a bronzing powder that looks as natural as possible when creating this look.
Gently bronze your face across only the high points of the cheeks and nose where the sun would naturally highlight and tan your face but be careful not to blend the bronzer ALL OVER the face because you want to keep the "strip-line" in tact for the most natural result. You can also add a few faux freckles ( if you don't already have them) ---as freckles go perfect with this look and are going to be really popular this year.
You can use a bobby-pin to dab the ends into a matte face or eye shadow powder (one that is only a little darker than your natural skin tone) and dab onto the cheeks and nose and under the eyes for a naturally sun-freckled look.
Too many freckles? Use a cotton swab or Q-Tip to remove any excess freckles and finish off with a nude setting powder or matte finishing veil to control excess oil and set the look for all day wear.
If you're feeling adventurous, try different color powders for your freckles as "rainbow freckles" will also be a trend that you will see in 2017. This returning trend from the 80's gives me hope that makeup fashions really ARE slowly returning to "NUDE & NATURAL" very soon!
