The Magnolia Effect

 

FotorCreatedmagnoliaWhen I took the make-up course, many years ago, I was so passionate about make-up that I was analyzing red carpet looks for hours. The complexion, the eyes, lips, everything in detail, and I was searching to find out what kind of products the make-up artist used to achieve that look. This is the way I came across a Charlize Theron make-up that I just loved.

There was a harmony in it. Nothing highlighted too much. It was a make-up that was highlighting her. Analyzing it, I saw that the eyes, cheeks and lips were done with almost the same color. The make-up artist used the same shade of peach on eyes, cheeks and lips, and only the texture of the products was different. Ever since, I’m a huge fan of this balanced type of make-up and I realized, through the years, that you can obtain it with many shades.

Today I prepared this kind of make-up by using a shade close to the color of magnolias. As you see, the magnolia is cherry colored at the base right before it blooms, and slowly transforms into a beautiful gradient until it reaches white. I searched in my make-up bag products in this shade and I found a cherry lipstick which I actually applied in a very thin layer and I used the same matte eye-shadow for eyes and cheeks.

Cand participam la cursul de make-up, acum multi ani, eram atat de pasionata, incat analizam machiajele de covor rosu ore in sir. Tenul, ochii, buzele, ma uitam in detaliu la tot si ma interesam ce produse a folosit make-up artistul care realizase machiajul. Asa am dat peste un machiaj al lui Charlize Theron, care mi-a placut foarte mult. Am simtit o armonie in machiajul ei. Nimic nu iesea foarte tare in evidenta. Era un machiaj care o scotea pe ea in evidenta. Analizand machiajul, mi-am dat seama ca machiajul ochilor, obrajilor si al buzelor era realizat cu aproximativ aceeasi culoare. Make-up artistul folosise aproape aceeasi culoare (un piersiciu) si in cazul fardului si al pometilor si al buzelor, doar textura produselor fiind diferita. De atunci, sunt mare fan al acestui tip de machiaj armonios si mi-am dat seama, de-a lungul timpului, ca se poate realiza cu foarte multe culori.

Azi v-am pregatit un astfel de machiaj cu o culoare cat mai apropiata de culoarea magnoliilor. Dupa cum vedeti magnolia, chiar inainte sa infloreasca, la baza are culoarea visinie, care treptat se transforma intr-un degrade foarte frumos, pana la alb. Am cautat in trusa de machiaj produse cu aceasta culoare si am gasit un ruj visiniu, pe care insa l-am aplicat intr-un strat subtire, iar in cazul ochilor si obrajilor am folosit acelasi fard mat.
