Imagine adherents of the youth subculture without a specific makeup is enough difficult, especially when it comes to fans of the emo style. According to makeup experts, emo makeup is not easy to do. Success can be achieved only if the inner mood matches the chosen image. In other words, if you have the necessary attitude, you can apply such makeup at home with your own hands.
Cosmetics you need for emo makeup
- foundation cream powder;
- loose powder;
- black eyeliner;
- black eyeliner;
- dark eyeshadow;
- eyeshadow is bright;
- waterproof black ink;
- lip gloss or lipstick.
Before doing emo makeup, you need to decide on its purpose. Like any other, emo makeup is divided into daytime and evening. The first involves the use of fairly bright shadows, such as gold, pink, blue, silver, purple or purple.
In the evening, emo makeup for girls can look even more daring – large glitters are applied to the eyelid area, very voluminous false eyelashes are used. In addition, special attention is paid to the application of powder and blush, which add expression and texture to the face.
Rules for applying emo makeup
The main rule that should be taken into account when doing emo makeup: you need to do everything possible to give your skin a perfectly even look and natural shade. To mask imperfections, it is worth using tonal and compact powder, as well as a concealer. Next, you should emphasize the eyes. Makeup for emo, among others, stands out precisely for the brightly outlined area of the eyes. The eyes are outlined gradually, starting with a soft pencil in dark gray or black. It is worth noting that, first, the inner corners of the eyes are highlighted with light movements, and then a contour on the lower eyelids is created with a line of medium fat. Arrows are created by intersecting the contours of the upper and lower eyelids.
It is difficult to call emo makeup complete without the use of shades of saturated colors. The image will sparkle only if the eyelids are tinted in thick asphalt, purple, gray or other colors. It is important to note that regardless of the chosen color of the eyeshadow, emo makeup involves careful shading. This uncomplicated technique will visually enlarge the eyes, especially if you combine it with the addition of light strokes. In addition, a halo of brighter shadows should be created around the dark outline. Next, the eyelashes are painted, preferably with black mascara, which increases the length and volume.
Since emo makeup focuses on the eyes, there is no need to highlight the lips in any special way. Regular lip gloss or lipstick in a neutral tone should be sufficient. If you want to make the skin a little paler than its natural shade, you can apply a thin layer of light loose powder.
Features of the image
Emo girl makeup will not allow you to completely create an image unless you complement it with an appropriate outfit, manicure and hairdo. In this case, nails are not given the last importance. Emo makeup works well with nails painted black, as well as variations on the theme of French manicure, such as black with pink or blue. However, without the presence of black manicure will not be so successful.
It is very important to pay attention to choosing the right lipstick. Emo makeup does not allow for bright shades for lip coloring. Red and cherry colors, as well as fuchsia, are strongly discouraged. They can completely ruin the emo girl’s makeup and make the look ridiculous.
It is also worth talking about skin smoothing separately. Emo make-up absolutely does not combine with such dermal problems as redness, acne, acne and unevenness. If any of the listed ailments is present, it must be carefully masked with a tonal agent, it is desirable that it also have a healing effect. It should also be remembered that low-quality cosmetics can only worsen the situation.
Emo image transformation
If not so long ago the emo image did not involve the use of bright cosmetics, today the state of affairs has radically changed. Colors such as pink, blue and purple have firmly entered emo fashion, which means the whole emo style has become more cheerful. This look will make you feel like a real princess, with big eyes and long eyelashes.
The requirements for eyeliner and mascara have also softened recently – now you can use not only black colors, but also experiment with dark gray, blue and purple.
Basic rules for applying correct makeup
To make a beautiful makeup, it is not enough just to have a set of high-quality professional cosmetics, you need to know the basic rules for its creation and be able to apply them in practice. A neat make-up always looks impressive, attracting the attention of others. A girl who knows the technique of applying it can easily be transformed, highlighting her dignity and evoking enthusiastic compliments. Despite the fact that makeup is predominantly a feminine art, not every lady owns it. And the availability of the most expensive and elite cosmetics does not guarantee an excellent result if you do not master the rules for its use. Knowing how to apply makeup correctly, you can look effective and attractive in any situation, even without having an arsenal of tubes, jars and palettes.
Makeup can be of two types – simple and complex. The first is necessary to give freshness to the woman’s face, with the help of the second, skin imperfections (moles, scars) are carefully shaded. Depending on the time of day and function, the make-up can be daytime (close to natural) and evening, that is, intended for a solemn exit.
Everyday makeup refers to a simple look. It is designed to mask minor imperfections, give the face freshness and emphasize its natural beauty. If the skin does not have very noticeable defects, and the facial features are harmonious, the correct daytime make-up will only enhance the natural charm of a woman, while he himself will be invisible. Evening make-up is usually complicated and requires more time and cosmetics. It allows the use of decorative elements, gloss, false eyelashes and other paraphernalia.
Regardless of the type of makeup you choose, you have to go through the same stages of applying it: toning and dusting the skin, eyeliner, eyebrow, applying blush and covering the lips with lipstick or gloss.
Preparing for the makeup process
Preparation is no less important than the process of applying cosmetics. Makeup should be applied correctly only on clean skin. Therefore, first you need to remove the remnants of makeup, wash, rub your face with a tonic. Next, we determine the type of skin. It is important to moisturize dry skin with a day cream. For oily or combination skin, apply a matting agent or base.
The durability and accuracy of the makeup, as well as the time spent on its creation, largely depends on this stage. It is important to pay attention to every little detail, try new techniques and choose a harmonious combination of shades and textures. Practical skills will be worked out over time, and then there will be no question of how to apply makeup correctly. Makeup adheres better to a cleansed and moisturized face and retains its durability longer. It is not allowed to apply new layers on the existing “plaster”. Make-up removal is imperative. In general, the more the skin has a rest from cosmetics, the better its appearance and condition. If you have free time or during the weekend, you can practice the use of face masks with your own hand or from the store range. The regularity of such procedures is 1-2 times a week.
Washing with water is not enough for adult skin; it must be supplemented with cosmetic cream, milk or gel. Cleansing is completed with tonic or lotion. The treatment is selected depending on the type of skin and the season. A caring agent can be a fluid cream, a nourishing or moisturizing cream, an emulsion.
How to apply foundation and foundation
Correction of problem areas and small defects is carried out with the help of a corrector, concealer. They can “hide” dark circles under the eyes, pimples, protruding streaks, pigmentation. To consolidate the camouflage effect, apply foundation and powder, which also provide an even complexion.
To choose the color of the foundation, it is tested: it is applied to the inside of the brush.
For oily or combination skin, you can use products with a mattifying effect to absorb excess sebum and eliminate the oily sheen.
- We apply the base. Before applying the foundation, you need to prepare the skin. To do this, you need a special makeup base. Girls with oily or combination skin should choose a product with a matting effect; for normal or dry skin, a nourishing, moisturizing base is suitable. Such products effectively even out the complexion, refreshing it. After applying the base, hide the circles, puffiness under the eyes with a corrector. This should be done with the pads of the fingers, soft patting movements.
- Apply the foundation. It should cover the sharp edges of the face in order to smooth them out, making the face softer and more tender. Walk along the line of the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, forehead, cheeks.
- Apply foundation. Do not put too thick a layer of tone on your face, because even the highest quality and expensive cosmetics in excess can give your face an unnatural look. Squeeze some of the cream onto the inside of your hand and begin to gently apply it with a brush, moving from the edges of the face to its center. Blend thoroughly all over the skin. Lightly powder the layer of foundation with a soft brush – this will give your face a natural look.
When creating makeup, it is important to choose the right color for the base and foundation. Too light shades will make the face look like a doll, lifeless. Dark ones are able to create an unnatural contrast with the neck and other exposed parts of the body. When choosing a tone, apply it to the inside of the hand – the product should completely match in color with this area of the hand. To correct the shape of your face, you need to use two shades of foundation – your natural one and a darker one. The first is applied to the entire face with an even thin layer. The second is applied zonally, depending on the type of person.
Tools and cosmetics
Determining the color type of the appearance, namely the shade of the skin, eyes and hair, is the next step on the way to flawless makeup. A correctly selected palette of eyeshadows, blush and lipstick can embellish or completely transform a woman’s face. You can determine the range empirically, relying on the recommendations of professional makeup artists and your artistic taste. It is clear that for daytime makeup it is worth choosing nude and pastel shades that will not clearly stand out on the face. For an evening look, bright, saturated colors, enchanting combinations, interesting textures are suitable.
In any case, it is better to prepare the necessary cosmetics and tools in advance so that you can apply everything at once and not be distracted by searching during the process of creating makeup. It is important to pay attention to the shelf life of cosmetic and decorative products and not to forget about the storage time after opening the package.
A set of sponges and brushes of different shapes and sizes will help in the difficult, but interesting process of creating “make-up”. Cotton pads and swabs will correct errors and remove excess makeup. And of course, it will be easier to apply makeup at a comfortable table with good lighting and a large (preferably magnifying) mirror.
- For owners of a square face, it is recommended to apply a light tone to the middle of the forehead, the tip of the chin and the area under the eyes. A dark remedy is to treat the area near the hairline, at the corners of the jaw and temples. The borders between transitions should be carefully shaded.
- A round face should be covered with a light foundation, and using a dark product, visually narrow it, darkening the area of the cheeks and temples.
- Girls with a triangular face need to apply a light tone on the forehead, chin and under the eyes – this way you focus on the center of the face. Cover the line of the cheeks, forehead with a dark tone.
- With an extended face type, it is necessary to darken the lower part of the chin – this will visually shorten the face. Do not spare the blush for your cheeks, because this accent also helps to bring attention to the middle of the face.
- On a pear-shaped face (narrow at the top, full at the bottom), the forehead area, the area under the eyes and the tip of the chin should be highlighted in a light tone. A dark tone is applied to the cheeks and jaws – this visually makes them narrower.
Step-by-step creation of a make-up
It is important to follow the sequence of applying cosmetics generally accepted by makeup artists. In make-up, especially in the evening, it is recommended to focus on one part of the face. As a rule, these are the eyes. They give unlimited scope for using unexpected shades of shadows, their interesting combination with the natural color of the iris. A sweep of luxurious eyelashes, a bewitching look – these epithets are not in vain used when describing attractive women.
If you want to highlight seductive lips on your face, it’s easy to do this with bright lipstick. In this case, eye makeup is correctly made natural and inconspicuous. Focusing on two or more parts of the face will make the image look like a puppet or too “womanish”. Confidence and neatness are the hallmarks of a stylish and luxurious woman.
Eye makeup is the most crucial and difficult stage.
How to properly apply eye makeup? The first thing to consider is what type of makeup you need to do. For a daytime make-up, you should use a couple of shades of shadows and a pencil of dark brown or black color. With a gentle movement of the pencil, shade the lash line and the mucous membrane of the upper eyelid. Visually, the eyelashes will appear thick, and the eyes will acquire an expressive, beautiful shape. Apply eyeshadow with a round applicator or brush. If you don’t know which tone suits you, you can use universal shades – they are considered gray and brown tones. To enlarge the eyes, apply light shadows on the inside of the eye and dark shadows on the outside. Matte shadows in pastel colors look natural. For evening make-up, choose pearlescent warm or cold tones. The final stage will be the application of mascara to the eyelashes.
It usually uses tools such as:
- base under the shadow;
- pencil or liquid eyeliner;
- palette of shadows;
In the daytime version, only light shadows and mascara can be applied, or only mascara. Evening or stage make-up is inconceivable without expressive arrows and rich colors, it allows the use of false eyelashes or rhinestones. Also, a festive look should be combined with an outfit, hairstyle and accessories.
In a complex visage, the eyeliner is applied after the foundation, then the shadows are shaded. There are various makeup schemes – horizontal, vertical, “birdie”, “smokey ice”, “banana”. Their use depends on the shape of the eyes, the distance between them, the shape of the eyelid. The choice of mascara is determined by the natural density and length of the eyelashes. It can be lengthening, twisting, increasing the volume. Waterproof swatches provide longer-lasting makeup. The color of the mascara may also vary. So, brown-eyed girls are recommended to use brown shades in daytime makeup. For a festive occasion, blue, purple, green or silver ink can be useful. Especially extravagant ladies turn their attention even to red. Some manufacturers offer 2-in-1 products consisting of a caring serum,
The shade of the shadows must be combined with the color of the eyes. Green-eyed girls need to use warm colors to create their makeup. The beauty of green eyes can still be emphasized with the help of blue, gray, purple shadows. Brown eyes should be set off with ash-gray shades, brown-beige colors. For blue eyes, shadows of a cold spectrum, for example, smoky, white, blue, are suitable. To achieve the desired effect when dyeing eyelashes, you can try several methods of applying mascara:
- vertical, in which the brush moves vertically relative to the eyes, that is, parallel to the hairs;
- blinking – quick flaps of eyelashes when you horizontally touch them with a brush;
- zigzags – alternating movements of the brush from left to right and up and down.
One of the final steps is lip makeup.
To enhance the natural beauty of your lips, choose light, but not very pale lipstick colors. Fresh shades are perfect for summer make-up or light makeup for every day. Choose from light coral, sheer berry, peach or pink lipstick. As a result, the lips should not look bright, but expressive. It doesn’t matter what the girl chooses – lipstick or gloss, both products are allowed for creating classic makeup. If she prefers to use lipstick to get an even layer and a clear outline, apply it with a brush.
Lips can be pre-softened with a balm and thus prepared for lipstick application. There are also special scrubs with fine exfoliating particles that gently remove stratum corneum and chapped skin. Lip liner will emphasize, if necessary, correct their shape. Its color should match the lipstick or differ from it by several tones. A soft, well-sharpened lead will help you achieve a clear outline.
It is important to carefully paint over the lips with lipstick and capture their inner surface as much as possible so that the makeup looks beautiful and natural when talking, laughing. The first layer can be powdered or blotted with a cosmetic tissue, then another layer can be applied.So makeup lips will become fuller and more resistant.
The shade of lipstick should be combined with the color of the eyeshadow, skin tone. For each color type of appearance, there are recommendations for choosing cosmetics. With bright eye makeup, nude lipsticks are usually used, that is, lipsticks close to the natural color of the lips. In a daytime make-up, you can limit yourself to liquid shine or balm. Someone may like long-lasting lipsticks, but do not overuse their use, as they dry out the skin of the lips.
Blush – refresh the complexion
Giving him a natural glow and completing his makeup. Their color is usually matched to the tone of the skin: pink and beige are suitable for fair-faced, bronze or brown for dark-skinned ones. By changing the direction and width of the strokes, you can correct the shape of the face, visually stretch it vertically or horizontally, increase or decrease the width. The optimal intensity for applying blush is when it doesn’t stand out on the face.
Understand how beautifully and correctly to apply makeup, not difficult. Their practical implementation will help to consolidate the acquired knowledge. With such skills, a woman in any situation will feel confident and will be able to provide the desired impression on others.
