Question 1: “how to I wear concealer correctly?”

“Eye shadow can be quickly to retouch: the concealer starting from the inner corner of the eye, near the bridge of the nose, until shortly before the outer corner of the eye apply and then gently pat with your middle finger and hide.” Sandra Raab, global makeup artist at Estée Lauder

Question 2: “How am I pronouncing my eye color?”

“You use eye shadow in a color that contrasts your eye color: blue eyes are the color of bronze and Brown.” Green eyes get depth with violet and Aubergine, Brown eyes with blue, Navy or anthracite. To reinforce the effect Please also select a mascara that tone.” Martin Schmid, national makeup artist for Chanel

Question 3: “can a flushed face mask?”

“There’s two ways. “You can use a strong opaque makeup or but a slightly opaque one – in a shade that contains no part of pink, but based on an olive tone.” Carsten Fischer, Manager of makeup artists at Clarins

Question 4: “how to avoid makeup stains on the top?”

“Is the neck area when applying is omitted, there are no make-up edges. Prerequisite: The hue of the make-ups must so look natural, that the transition from face to HALs ‘ seamless ‘ runs. Ask because the right hue of a professional for advice. “By the way: powdery makeup textures are durable and secure tracks.” Markus Zilling, senior artist at Mac

“Is question 5: an even and natural complexion without much makeup at all doable?”

“Yes! With the new BB creams. This all-in one products combine moisturizer, sunscreen, primer, Foundation and concealer. That is, in a single step, maintain, protect, and thus improve the appearance of your skin.” Sandra Raab, global makeup artist at Estée Lauder

Question 6: “what remains of eyeshadow all day?”

“Ensure durability especially with a base for eyeshadow. Their creamy consistency has a very high pigmentation, this holds the eyeshadow better on the skin. Unfortunately often too much of the base is applied, then the surplus over the course of the day settles unfavorably in the crease. It is sufficient to give only a very small amount on the eyelid as a finger tip. Still lasting the base effect, if it is fixed after applying with a touch of transparent powder.” Carsten Fischer, Manager of makeup artists at Clarins

Question 7: “How can I get a clean eyeliner?”

“Most importantly, to put the liquid color as close as possible to the lash. Only then does the upper Lashline denser and more richly. A form of correction of the eyes is so also most likely. It is much easier than to pull the eyeliner in one go, to apply it in two stages. I recommend to draw the first line from the inner corner of the eye to the center of the eyelid, then be at the outer corner of the eye, and about moving back to the Middle, where the two lines meet. “The advantages of this method: the eyelid is less strained, and the design is actually more even.” Martin Schmid, national makeup artist for Chanel

Question 8: “How can pick the best hide?”

“With concealer! He acts like a liquid Foundation, has more colour pigments and is therefore ideal for laminating problematic skin areas. A golden hue ‘swallows’ small impurities in most beneficial. The whole thing with a fine special brush apply. Finally still slightly powder fix with the covered place.” Markus Zilling, senior artist at Mac

Question 9: “How my Rouge stays longer?”

“There are two Rouge killer: oily skin and to rich day care or makeup.” I recommend you to try it once with a mattifying day cream and Foundation. Is useful also to fix the Rouge after applying with a loose transparent powder.” Carsten Fischer,
Manager makeup artists at Clarins

Question 10: “helps, really very much powder against a fast shiny face?”

“The fast greasing of the skin is often with the facial, with a too-rich day cream around. Have tended also makeup any oil-free texture, the skin shine. Therefore for longer Matt-effect use a matifying care and opalescent makeup. Instead of the usual post tastesless of dear ‘blotting papers’ use. The fine, oil-absorbent pads are extremely absorbent and contain no pigments. So the complexion is dull and does not mask-like – even after repeated dabbing.” Markus Zilling, senior artist at Mac

Question 11: “is there a trick that makes bigger seem my eyes?”

“With a black eyeliner on the top eyelid to eyelid pull the Middle a fine line from the outer corner of the eye, as well to the entire lower lash. Then gently blur the lines. It opens the eye, it makes seem larger. A swab of bright eye shadow or white, slightly blurred eye liner at the inner corner of the eye enhances the effect yet.” Sandra Raab, global makeup artist at Estée Lauder
