Types of Makeup Looks

The art of makeup has been reinvented and seen as an enhancer rather than something that hides. Different types of makeup looks work towards achieving the same goal- enhancing the natural features and beauty of a person. Contrary to popular belief, makeup is not something that conceals and changes how a person looks, in fact, different types of makeup looks are used to highlight and accentuate the real beauty of a person.

  1. HD Makeup
    HD, or High Definition, makeup is what we usually see people wearing on our TV’s and the big screen. Precision cameras can easily capture each and every line and crease on the face, both natural and formed by layers of makeup. HD makeup is a technique that uses sheer makeup that hides the lines and creases and does not crease over time.

The best part about HD makeup is that it does not feel heavy and makes you look extremely natural both on and off camera. It keeps your skin looking young and radiant for hours.

  1. Airbrush Makeup

Airbrush makeup probably has the most flawless and smooth look of all the different types of makeup looks. It completely covers any blemishes, dark spots or complexion differences, without looking unnatural or cakey.

  1. Natural Makeup

Not everyone likes dramatic, bold and loud makeup, especially for daytime looks and occasions. That’s where natural makeup look comes in. It uses a light base to give you an even tone, with subtle colours to accentuate the features. It makes you look ‘all peaches and pinks’, just like you are blushing.

Shades of blacks and grey are used to create a dark smokey look, and shades of brown may be used to create a soft smokey look. Long fake lashes, Kohl and an eyeliner complete the eyes.

Smokey makeup is all about the modern day woman who is equal parts graceful and powerful.
