In the twinkling of an eye we are already planted in spring with its longer days, more hours of sunshine and, of course, with new makeup trends. The catwalks have already left us some examples for the next season, which is full of novelties with very fresh, bright and colorful looks.
Although we love a good colorful ‘eyeliner’ or makeup with jewels and glitter, the truth is that We do not have time to make them in the morning, they are not a suitable look to wear to the office, preferring things that are a little more discreet, but that also illuminate us and give a healthy and juicy appearance, with touches of color.
To help us simplify these 2023 trends, makeup artist Mateo Pérez gives us the keys to achieve beautiful and simple makeup, but following the fashion that is set on the catwalks. in so only 15 minutes.
Perfect and tanned skin
This season, skin will continue to be luminous, but not as shiny as we’ve been seeing in recent years, leaving a more natural and less ‘oily’ look that all skin types will love, from oily to dry. . It’s about the ‘sporty glow’ trend, in which a shiny finish is sought (as sweat leaves on our skin after exercising), but glamorous, with some tan on the skin that simulates having been exercising outdoors, such as running or hiking.
To achieve this look, “the most important thing is have hydrated skin. To do this, we will prepare the skin well by cleaning it, applying a moisturizing serum according to our skin type, and then we put a little more moisturizer than you would normally wear, without forgetting the lip balm”, explains Mateo.
“If we have a glitter primer as the wonder glow by Charlotte Tilbury, we put it on before applying our makeup base, which should be fluid and not very covering (it leaves a more natural look with our hands). We continue with the concealer in the dark circles extending it out of the face, once this is done we apply cream blush on the cheekbones and on the bridge of the nose,” continues the expert.
To end, “comb and set the eyebrows up, put on a little mascara and if you have a golden shadow you can give yourself a point of light in the tear duct. Grab a liquid eyebrow marker to do your freckles. Finally, Seal the T-Zone with dust and ready to hit the streets,” she concludes.
The lips as protagonists
Carolina Herrera made it clear: this spring we will wear clean skin and raspberry lips. This color is extremely flattering for everyone and brings light, so we hardly need anything else.
To achieve the look of the Venezuelan designer, Mateo is clear about it: “Use a medium coverage foundation with your hands all over your face, correct imperfections and dark circles with a concealer, mark the cheekbones with a cream contour and blend it well with your fingers. “. Next we continue with the eyes: “Brush and set the brows up with a clear brow fixer. Apply mascara liberally to the upper lashes and use a white pencil for the water line inlower to give a more open eye feel.
“Finally, outline and fill in the lips with a pencil of raspberry lips so that the lipstick that we put on it later lasts longer. Don’t forget to seal the T zone with powder,” the makeup artist concludes.
‘Rockstar girlfriend makeup’
The ‘rockstar girlfriend makeup’ look, also known as rock star girlfriend makeup, has become hugely popular on social media like TikTok thanks to the 2010 fashion revival and the influence of grunge. It is characterized by a smoked ‘messy’ fairly easy to achieve, as Mateo Pérez explains to us.
“The force is in the eyes, for this you must have a creamy black pencil, a black shadow and a blending brush. Apply the pencil all over the eyelid and the lower part, tearing towards the outside of the eye. With the finger, blend the that you have applied to create a uniform mixture, but at the same time “dirty” and also apply the black pencil to both the lower and upper water lines,” he tells us.
“Seal your ‘smoky eye’ with the black shadow with the help of the brush to blend, but never going over the base in pencil that we have created below. If you mark the peak of the tear duct with the pencil it will have a more torn and feline appearance. We continue with plenty of mascara both above and below and clean the dark circles with some water-based moisturizer with a cotton swab to remove any traces of shadow that may have fallen and then apply your base and concealer,” the makeup artist concludes.
