I am 99% sure most of us are at least a little bit aware of what contouring is. For those who are maybe a little unsure of what it is all about, it involves tons of shading and highlighting using different makeup products to accentuate the curves and lines of your face. Contouring can totally transform your face and change your look. But… it is so darn difficult to do! It takes tons of work and lots of practice to get it down. Let’s face it, we have all tried to contour our faces, only to get half way and look like a clown and give up.  So, what if you want a sculpted face but do not have time (or motivation) to contour? Introducing: strobing.GigiHadid_Strobing_F

Strobing is a new kind of contouring that takes a fraction of the time and effort. Instead of using a darker color and a lighter color to shade your face with makeup, all you use is highlighter. Apply it to the center of your forehead, under your eyebrow bone, your chin, the inner corner of your eyes, and the tip of your nose. It brightens up your face and takes much less work (aka it is harder to mess it up)! You can use a dewy, sheer highlighter or you can make it super easy on yourself and use a highlighter stick. Just find a window and use a mirror to see where the sun naturally hits on your face. Then use highlighter on these spots.

Strobe away!

Transition your Makeup from Summer to Fall

Now is the time to take your makeup routine from “fun and summer-y” to “fabulous and fall-y”. Summer makeup is all about soft tones, sheer coverage and natural vibes. Fall is about rich hues, smoky eyes and trendy tones. I’ll fill you in on how to transition your makeup routine from summer to fall!

  1. Start with the lips. During the summer I love wearing pink and coral colored lip shades. This fall opt for sheer, translucent stains of plum or burgundy. Last year’s lip trend was opaque oxblood, but this year it is a little more subdued.fall makeup 1
  2. Next follow up with the eyes. Trade out neutral shadows with this year’s hottest eye trend: crimson. Create a smoky eye with crimson and russet tones.
  3. Figure out the finish. Summer makeup is dewy and makes your face glow, where as usual fall foundation has a matte finish. This year, avoid the “flat” look by using foundations and powders that allow your natural complexion to show through.
  4. Make your moisturizer count. In the summer you sweat a lot and the humidity keeps your skin nice and moist. Cooler times call for different measures. Cold temps dry out your skin, so use creamy cleansers and moisturizers to make sure your face gets the moisture it needs!

The transition from summer to fall makeup is completely painless! Don’t you agree?

We have already discussed the minimalist jewelry trend, so might as well hit minimalist makeup as well! Minimalist makeup is pretty much defined by the “natural” look. Like the minimalist jewelry trend, less is more. Here are three must-have products to pull off the minimalist makeup trend:NaturalBronzer_TEASER_0

  1. Mascara: a little mascara goes a long way! Mascara enhances your natural features, so it is the definition of all
    natural makeup.
  2. Lip color: even if it is just a little bit of color, it still adds a little something something to your look!
  3. Bronzer: bronzer adds definition to your face, and also helps to contour your cheeks. When you are wearing less makeup, you want to define your features.
  4. BB Cream: This stuff is a lot lighter than foundation, so it is more natural looking and feeling!

Want to try for a more natural look? Try the minimalist makeup trend!

XOXO, Chels
