EXOTIC BEAUTY

EXOTIC BEAUTY LOOKS FOCUS ON THE NATURAL ANATOMY OF THE FACE TO CREATE STRIKING EYE-CATCHING EFFECTS.

THE KEY TO CREATING THIS LOOK IS TO PLAY UP THE STRONGEST FEATURES OF THE FACE BY EMPHASIZING THEIR POSITIVES. FROM DRAMATIC ELONGATED EYES, CONTOURED LIPS, ILLUMINATED CHEEKS AND DEWY SKIN, THE SKY IS THE LIMIT FOR THIS EXOTIC BEAUTY LOOK.

MODERN GLAMOUR

MODERN GLAMOUR IS ABOUT A STYLE PERFECTLY BALANCED AND EQUALLY SHARED BETWEEN FACIAL FEATURES BY PLAYING THEM UP IN UNISON. 

TO ACHIEVE THIS ALLURING LOOK, THE EYES ARE SOFTLY CONTOURED AND ELONGATED, WHILE THE EYEBROWS STAY WELL DEFINED AND ARCHED TO FRAME THE EYE MAKEUP.

THE LIPS ARE FULLY CONTOURED AND LAYERED WITH A SEMI-MATTE LIP TEXTURE IN HUES THAT BALANCE OUT THE EYE MAKEUP.

WITH THE EYES AND LIPS TAKING CENTER STAGE, THE CHEEKS ARE KEPT SOFT WITH A SUN-KISSED DEWY GLOW. 

SOFT SMOKEY

THE MAGNETIC EFFECT OF THE SMOKEY EYE REMAINS AN ALL TIME FAVORITE ON THE RED CARPET.

UNLIKE SEASONS PAST, THIS MODERN VERSION IS NOW SOFTER AND MORE TRANSPARENT, EXUDING AN AIRY SOPHISTICATED-LIKE QUALITY.

THE EYES TAKE CENTER STAGE WITH BOTH THE LIPS AND CHEEKS PLAYED DOWN USING SOFT HIGHLIGHTING AND CONTOURING TECHNIQUES.

SEXY SIREN

THE ELONGATED CAT EYE TOGETHER WITH FULL VOLUPTUOUS LASHES IS SIGNATURE TO THIS IRRESISTIBLE LOOK.

THE EYES ARE DRAMATICALLY CONTOURED AND LAYERED WITH FAUX LASH STRIPS RUNNING FROM INNER TO OUTER CORNERS OF THE EYES.

SOFTLY CONTOURED LIPS ARE TOPPED WITH A SEMI-GLOSS IN LIGHT PASTEL HUES.

FOR THE CHEEKS, AN OMBRÉ EFFECT IS A MUST AND CREATED THROUGH HIGHLIGHTING AND CONTOURING TECHNIQUES THAT TO GIVE A SCULPTURED SEXY FINISH TO THE LOOK. 

MINIMALIST: LESS IS MORE

THE EFFORTLESS, CHIC AND FRESH LOOKING SKIN LAYERED AND CONTOURED AT A BARE MINIMUM IS THE ULTIMATE ATTENTION GRABBER FOR THIS LOOK.

THE EYES ARE LIGHTLY SHADED AND CONTOURED WITH THE EYEBROWS NATURALLY ARCHED TO FRAME THE EYES.

LIPS ARE SOFTLY SHAPED WITH MATTE TO SEMI-MATTE SHEENS RANGING FROM NATURAL ROSE HUES TO SOFT CORAL BROWN HUES. THE CHEEKS ARE KEPT MOSTLY BARE WITH A LIGHT SHEEN ALLOWING FOR THE INNER BEAUTY TO SHINE THROUGH. 

NEO CLASSIC

THIS GLAMOROUS RED CARPET LOOK IS TIMELESS AND NEVER GETS OLD. THE EYES ARE WELL CONTOURED AND BLENDED TO PERFECTION PORTRAYING AN AIRBRUSHED LOOK.  

THE LIPS ARE LAYERED WITH A LOW, MUTED SHINE GLOSS IN HUES ROSE BEIGES TO SOFT REDS.

HIGHLIGHTING AND CONTOURING THE CHEEKS TO ACHIEVE THE OMBRÉ EFFECT WITH FRESH, DEWY SKIN IS ALWAYS A MUST FOR THIS SOPHISTICATED, CLASSIC LOOK. 

NEO ROMANTIC

ROUNDED MAKEUP SHAPES ARE THE HALLMARK OF THE ROMANTIC LOOK AND FOR THIS SEASON IT FOCUSES ON THE EYES.

THE EYES ARE SOFTLY SHADED WITH TRANSPARENT TOPAZ AND GOLDEN BRONZE HUES. THE PIXIE FULL VOLUME LASHES ENHANCE THE ROUNDED EFFECT OF THE EYES THROUGH THE LENGTHENING OF THE CENTER LASHES – MAKING THIS A KEY ELEMENT IN THIS LOOK. 

THE LIPS ARE LIGHTLY CONTOURED AND LAYERED WITH A SEMI-GLOSS IN LIGHT, MUTED HUES AND THE CHECKS ARE ROUNDED THROUGH THE OMBRÉ EFFECT WITH SOFT HIGHLIGHTING.
