Style File: Spring Make-Up
You can have the perfect bag and the perfect shoes, but if your not wearing the perfect face, you're ignoring your most essential accessory. In tonight's "Style File," we found this season if you want to make an impression, you have to have the right makeup.
WSVN -- Lips, cheeks, eyes, action!
Lookin picture perfect 'aint easy. At Cream in South Miami, they say for Spring, less is more.
Cream Owner Lian Rosado: "It's really not as dramatic as it was last season. Its definitely a little bit more understated."
For the latest look, forget the gaudy glamour we saw last Fall.
Trish McEvoy's top makeup artist says what's in is showing off your skin.
Make-up artist Ekram: "We kind of like put the color in the background and bring out the fresher skin."
For women in their late teens to early twenties, it all starts with the eyes.
Make-up artist Ekram: "Considering that the spring is here, we don't want too much of a eye going on."
Go with a pale, non-shimmer shadow all over the lid.
Put a bit of sparkle directly under the brow. Then, fill in the crease with a pretty pastel.
Make-up artist Ekram: "We are going to be seeing a lot of pastels, pinks, and corals so we're gonna be doing more of those colors for you."
Want to make sure you did it right? Here's an easy tip.
Make-up artist Ekram: "Place your brush from the tip of your nose to the end of your brow, nothing should pass that point."
Add the final touches , and voila!
But if you really want to make sure you're truly in style, color will give your look a kick. Especially in products you wouldn't usually expect, like eyeliner and mascara.
Make-up artist Ekram: "Pink, tropical's the bright oranges that's what hot and happening."
Over thirty and want to change your look?
Go for a mint-green shadow all over accented by an amythest liner.
Ekram: "You are welcome to give yourself a little eyelift by going out and straight, it's just going to be thicker at the end."
For laugh lines, try a line refiner.
Make-up artist Ekram: "It goes underneath or on top of makeup and immediately diminishes appearance of fine lines by plumping and hydrating."
Next, try a sheer color shadow instead of eyeliner on the bottom.
Make-up artist Ekram: "You get the definition that you want without the actual harshness of the liner."
Then touch up your skin with a creme foundation and brush on the bronzer.
Make-up artist Ekram: "The gold face shine right now is the hot and happening one."
And now you're ready for the final step -- the lips. Glaze on some gloss and your set. Just look at the difference
Fake eyelashes are also coming back to get that long skinny lash. Makeup artists at cream can put them on for you.
