If artists followed the rules, it is possible that Picasso would never have had a "blue period", and Matisse's universe would have become mundane and insipid. Makeup artists also teach the rules of composition and color in order to break them. Red lip liner, black for the eyes. Boring!
Imagine a box of pencils that you use to draw on leather instead of paper. Such, in a wooden case, appeared at Make Up For Ever. It's not surprising if you know at least two facts from the biography of the founder of the brand, Dani Sanz. The first fact is that she is an artist-sculptor by education. Fact two - Dani adores David Bowie, and not only for his vocal and instrumental talent, but for his ability to transform.
Using the new Artist Color Pencil doesn't have to be able to draw and love Ziggy Stardust. It is enough to accept the rules of the game - "No rules". These matte pencils are invented for the eyes, lips, eyebrows, cheeks, everywhere else. The pictogram on the pencil will tell you which part of the face or body it is for. But it is not necessary to look closely at it, but it is better to boldly draw orange freckles or raspberry arrows. Or vice versa. By the way, the arrows will not be printed on top (a common problem with deep-set eyes or overhanging eyelids) if you first apply a primer or fix the pattern on top with transparent powder. And then the declared 12-hour durability of pencils will double. The lines are perfectly shaded with a brush or fingers in the most delicate haze. Both options are a noticeable trend this and next season.
Anna Merkusheva, the official Make Up For Ever in Russia, told us how to use the Artist Color Pencil instead of blush: “Just shade the apples of the cheeks with a pencil of the chosen shade and blend with the blush brush. There is also another option. Run a generous amount of lead on the back of your hand and add a drop of foundation. The result is a liquid blush that is very easy to blend. " We confirm. And we offer our own beauty hack. Instead of a tone, you can use a transparent primer. For example, with reflective particles, it will add shine.
It is also easy to paint lips with new pencils. A sharply sharpened lead draws the outline, then shading. Saturated matte color is ready. And lip balm change the finish to wet, if you want.
Although it is difficult to choose from three dozen shades, even one colored pencil will be enough for monochrome makeup. Or lightning bolts on the face like Ziggy Stardust. Anything can be done with the Artist Color Pencil. Only it is impossible to get bored.
