If you’re going to follow the no mascara trend, you better have the rest of your face down pat, otherwise you’ll end up looking more like an extra on the Walking Dead (depending on how rough your Monday morning is), than fresh-faced model. At Zero + Maria Cornejo, models not only skipped the mascara, but even the
concelaer under the eye. I know, you’re thinking that you’d rather give up your Louboutin’s than walk out the door without either, but makeup artist for
Shiseido Dick Page filled me in on the secret to pulling off the no mascara/no concealer look.
Page used a custom mix of bronzer, highlighter and blush swirled together for a healthy glow. The trick though was where he placed it. "We placed the bronzer, highlighter, blush thing quite high up on the cheek, close to the eye," he explains. "Because when you’re not doing a concelear or mascara thing you still want to look awake. Putting it closer to the eye makes the white in the eye stand out and you look more fresh and alive." Paige then dabbed the teeniest, tiniest amount of Shiseido’s new Veiled Rouge lipstick in a muted pink on the lips (and even wiped some of it off), for a just bitten look and to add just a touch of colour to the face.
There you have it. Will you be trying out the no mascara look?
