Makeup tips by Hala Ajam: There is No Brown Blush!

During our recent meeting with her, celebrity beauty expert Hala Ajam asserted that there is no brown blush, unlike what many women think.

In fact, the blush (as its name indicates) serves to give more “blush” to the cheeks (a lively color). Therefore, it is available in pink for the white skin and in coral for brunettes. As for what is called brown blush, it is actually a corrector and is used on the entire face to define it and bring out its beauty after applying the foundation cream and the loose powder. In this regard, the famed makeup artist stated that this rule doesn’t only apply on the cheeks, forehead and nose, but also on the eyes which should be painted with colors that bring out the natural beauty of the eye color, instead of using matching eye shadows.

(الماكياج الشفاف (بلون البشرة

إن الماكياج الشفاف هو، برأيي، الأقرب إلى أن يكون خفياً. فهذا النوع من الماكياج يحسّن اللون الطبيعي للبشرة والوجه. ولهذا السبب يجب على كريم الأساس أن يكون فاتح اللون. أما أحمر الخدود فيجب أن يوضع بلونيه الخوخي والوردي على عظمة الخد كي يبدو الوجه مفعماً بالنضارة والحيوية كما لو كان هذا هو اللون الطبيعي لاحمرار وجنتي المرأة. ونصل إلى الشفاه والتي لا يجب أن يتم تحديدها، بل تلوينها بشكل خفيف. كما أن ظل الجفون يجب أن يكون طبيعياً، ومن ثم يضاف القليل من الماسكارا بشكل لا يُذكر. فهذه حيلة جيدة كي تتاظهري سيدتي بأن تضعين الماكياج!

Nude makeup by Hala Ajam

Makeup that is nude is the closest thing, in my opinion, to invisible. The makeup enhances the skin tone and natural shade on the face. Foundation should be light. Blusher should be applied in shades of peach and rose to the apple of the cheek for a flushed, healthy appearance that evokes a young girl’s natural way of blushing. Lips should not be defined, just lightly colored. The eye shadow should be natural, and little mascara is to be discretely added. This is good trick to pretend you are wearing makeup!

Makeup Looks: Innocent Vs. Dramatic

There are several makeup looks that bring out the beauty of a woman’s face, and she can choose the look depending on her mood, style or the occasion. In this blog, we shed the light on the innocent and the dramatic makeup looks.

You can go either way looking extra special, by adding just a few details to your makeup, or you can apply a little makeup on and still look ready for a night out.

However, if you prefer the stronger look, accentuate your eyebrows with a pencil and further reveal the depth of your eyes through a smoky look.
