Color, lightness, desire to dare but with perfect skin and a nature effect.
The make-up trends for this spring speak for themselves: after two years of pandemic, with the face half hidden by masks, and in view of their abandonment on May 1st, the time has come to make make-up flourish with bright shades, both for the eyes as well as for the lips that become protagonists again. All this, however, on a perfect but very natural make-up of the face. In a nutshell, off the heavy contouring in the Kardashian style with outlined and illuminated cheekbones, and off to light products. “After this long period with the mask, the skin breathes again and does so with a natural but perfect make-up, also the result of an assiduous and accurate beauty routine to which a defense must be added”, Pablo Ardizzone make up artist from Shiseido suggests Urban Environment Age Defense Oil-Free SPF 30 which costs 36 euros. “A Shiseido product that protects both from external agents such as dust, pollen, UV filters and from the blue light of the computer that damages our complexion,” he explains. «It is also essential to use blurring effect products, a blur that Shiseido has in the Synchro Skin line. It starts with the Soft Blurring Primer which costs 39 euros: it minimizes imperfections and guarantees an excellent application, a smooth and compact skin. Then move on to the Self-Refreshing Tint foundation, a very light and imperceptible 48 euro product that melts like a second skin making it natural and vital ». And the small imperfections? «The corrector is the perfect ally for discoloration and must be used locally. The Correcting GelStick Concealer, which costs 35 euros, has a gel formula which, together with the Invisible Silk Loose Powder, enhances the blur effect in some areas of the face, minimizing pores ». A product, the latter, which costs 41 euros. “The last step is color: with the InnerGlow CheekPowder, priced at 40 euros, which gives a touch of vitality to the face”. If the complexion is nature, to dare you focus on the eyes and lips. For the eyes it is a triumph of block colors with fluorescent shades. Green, in the shades of sage, meadow, mint and forest, is among the most flaunted already from the catwalks. Another popular shade is fuchsia, the shade that most of all is a concentrate of good vibes. Pierpaolo Piccioli, the creative director of Valentino, is also well aware of this, who also proposed Pink PP for the beauty line, a full, courageous and daring nuance. The blue of the eyeshadow, on the other hand, must be strictly combined with lipstick colors tending to brown or brick. After two years in the beauty case, this spring marks the great return of lipstick and smiles in plain sight. According to CNN, which published the latest data from the market research firm IRI (world leader in the management of big data), sales of lipsticks in the US reached 34.2 million dollars, an increase of over 80%. compared to last year, for sales of $ 40 million, a figure that is close to pre-pandemic levels. The lips bloom again with nuances such as coral and pink that must be applied to the parisien: shaded edges and a more intense color in the center and more nuanced on the edges, giving an elegant, sensual and natural effect. Rihanna with her inclusive make-up line Fenty, has created a must of lipsticks, Icon (20.90 euros), with a range of 7 neutrals and 3 reds, with a semi-opaque and creamy formula that combines hyaluronic acid for an effect plumping, vitamin C and vitamin E to nourish and soften the lips.
