Have you ever wondered how beauty queens do their everyday natural look make-up? What products they are they obsessed with? or even what make-up tips & tricks they do to make that “little, yet effective” difference on their looks?

Besides models, social media bloggers, or make-up artists, we rarely see beauty queen such as 2015 Miss Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach (Philippines) who shows her bare skin, and teaches viewers on how a step-by-step everyday make-up look is done, starting from priming the skin (very important)!

Here is a YouTube Video make-up tutorial for you to “watch and learn.” From a professional make-up artist’s perspective, I really like her selection of products (not to mention she uses a lot of M·A·C Cosmetics products that I absolutely can’t live without in my make-up kit), her color choices are neutral and suitable for just about all “light, light-medium, medium, medium-dark, slightly tanned” color skintones… in another word, bravo on her choice of products and colors!

In this blog post, I am going to list the make-up products she uses, how meaningful some of the products are, her advocacy work as Miss Universe 2015, and share her make-up tips & tricks that I believe you will find very useful!

Pia’s main advocacy work as Miss Universe 2015’s is to spread HIV/AIDS awareness around the world and end the stigma surrounding the disease/infection!

Special thanks to Pia for choosing M·A·C Vival Gam Lipglass “Ariana Grande” product as her lip color, the final touch to her make-up look. Pia’s main advocacy work as Miss Universe 2015’s is to be vocal about her desire to spread HIV/AIDS awareness around the world and end the stigma surrounding the disease/infection, as well as her fight for gender equality and women empowerment.

M·A·C’s Viva Glam Campaign is fully supporting of people living with HIV & AIDS. With M·A·C’s AIDS FUND, 100 percent (yes, you heard it right, it’s 100%, not part of it) of the selling price of every VIVA GLAM product goes directly to men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS. How wonderful is that?

Makeup Expert’s Tips & Tricks & Product Suggestions:

m%c2%b7a%c2%b7c-lightful-c-marine-bright-formula-softening-lotion

M·A·C Lightful C Marine Bright Formula Softening Lotion

  1. Moisturize your skin! Pia uses M·A·C Lightful C Marine Bright Formula Softening Lotion to instantly refresh, tones, brighten-up, and smooth the skin conditions with its special marine brightening formula.
Best-primers-10-Vogue-MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance

M·A·C Prep + Prime Natural Radiance

2. Prime your skin! A smooth, clean skin is so essential in creating that flawless make-up look. Pia’s choice of M·A·C Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Primer “Radiant Pink” is excellent before applying foundation to create a  smooth skin canvas that makes make-up last longer and controls the oil on the skin.

3. “Less is More” is the key with good make-up application. Putting more products on the face, it will become heavy and cake-y. We do not want that for our everyday make-up look. Use foundation and concealer only in areas where needed.

m%c2%b7a%c2%b7c-studio-sculpt-spf15-foundation

M·A·C Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation

4. Mix colors to get that perfect color match to your skin! For medium, medium-dark skin tones, I often have to mix colors to get the perfect shade. In M·A·C’s system, NC has more golden/olive skin undertone, while the NW has more pinky/rosey undertone. If NC or NW color by itself doesn’t match, you mix both skintone colors to get a perfect skintone match! M·A·C Studio Sculpt SPF15 Foundation is a gel-based foundation that offers medium to full coverage with a natural satin finish, great for everyday make-up!

m%c2%b7a%c2%b7c-haute-and-naughty-lash-mascara-black

M·A·C Haute and Naughty Lash Mascara “Black”

5. You want to create a natural defining lash in the day, and make it more dramatic & voluminous for the evening? This two-in-one M·A·C Haute and Naughty Lash Mascara “Black” does the trick for you! One for day, and the other is for evening!

m%c2%b7a%c2%b7c-mineralize-skinfinish-natural

M·A·C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural “Medium Dark”

6. This baked mineral M·A·C Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powder is multi-tasking! I have different shades of them in my make-up kit. Asides from its main job to set foundations, or to use as a powder foundation itself, the lighter shades are excellent for highlighting; the darker shade is great for contouring or as a blush / bronzing color. It creates a smooth looking skin while making sure its natural looking.

mac-technakohl-liner-graphblack

M·A·C Technakohl Liner “Graphblack”

7. Tight Eye Liner does the magic of creating a natural defining eye line without looking you are a wearing eye liner. M·A·C Technakohl Liner “Graphblack” is a mechanical pencil-style liner with a soft and creamy formula and intense color. Its long wearing and safe for use in the waterline. Tight eye lining does take practice though, and be careful not to poke the liner into your eyes.

mac-wash-and-dry-eye-brows-brow-set

M·A·C Eye Brows and Brow Set

8. Mixing shades of: light, medium and dark colors when sculpting your brows can add a 3-D effect to make it more realistic looking. One color eye brow can sometime look flat. M·A·C Eye Brows pencil is self-propelling and self-sharpening brow definer that adds shape, color and density. The colors that I like to have are: Brunette, Fling, Spiked, and Lingering.

Pageant Makeup Tutorial – AFTER

If you are into beauty pageant looks, Pia also showed another tutorial on Beauty Pageant Make-up Look that she did on herself for Miss Philippines and Miss Universe beauty pageants! Some key points for pageant make-ups (on stage) are:

  • Use foundation that is good for HD (high definition) and choose a shade that is half to one shade darker than your natural skin tone because stage lights, flashes will tend to wash away colors.
  • Do contour and highlight! This will bring more definition, and make yourself more photogenic on prints & videos!
  • Use neutral colors such as browns for: brows, eyes, contours, and cheek colors. They are timeless and classic.

  • 成功打造偽素顏的真諦,膚質正是勝負關鍵。為了打造PS過的膚質但又要讓粧感輕透得不著痕跡,星魅輕羽粉餅首次採用資生堂獨特的「慕斯壓製法」,有別於過去一般粉狀粉餅直接將油分和保濕成分加入粉末中,再以高而強力的混合壓製成為的紮實結構,而改以將空氣感粉末和保濕精華液成分(超級生化玻尿酸、甘油)均勻混合,並以緩慢且輕柔的力道按壓成慕絲狀粉末後,再乾燥而製成,其過程耗時費工,為的就是成就輕盈滑順的使用感。
  • 針對毛孔粗大問題,星魅輕羽粉餅延續使用真型膜力粉餅所採用的遮蓋技術-「毛孔隱形法」,運用視覺與光感交錯的原理,塗抹後可在肌膚上滑順延展開來,並與凹凸不平的毛孔邊緣均勻融合。除此之外,針對最惱人的泛油光困擾,添加「皮脂偵測吸收粉末」和「皮脂自動隔離粉末S」,可吸取多餘皮脂並使其固化而呈現柔霧粧感,即使經過長時間也能維持清爽服貼的肌膚觸感。

By: Jenny Tseng / Re-Blog from: VOGUE (Taiwan) Beauty Blog 

常常被問我的上妝步驟,今天來跟大家介紹一下我自己平常標準的上妝步驟!

妝前的步驟和產品依個人需求可以有不同的選擇,之前在分別在兩篇文章中過介紹過的, [洗臉 -> (化妝水) -> 乳液or 妝前乳  -> (隔離霜、or 防曬乳) ]

Make-up artists are often being asked about make-up application steps. Taipei- & Vancouver-based make-up artist Jenny Tseng shares her make-up secrets! For her, the pre-makeup prepping steps are different according to your personal need; in general, the steps are: Cleansing –> Toner –> Moisturizer and/or Primer –> Sun Block. In this blog post, Jenny breaks down her make-up procedure in 11 steps.

Makeup 101: Colour Theory & Make-up Artistry by Tommy Beauty Pro

With colors you can set a mood, attract attention, or make a statement. There is psychology behind colorsthey tell stories. By selecting the right color scheme, you can create an ambiance of elegance, warmth or tranquility, or you can convey an image of playful youthfulness.

·

As a make-up artist, you are working with products, tools, colors, textures, shapes, and human faces (bone structure) all the time. Because you are an artist, you must have a good sense in coloring, so you can color match correctly & create the best color selection/scheme for your clients.

In this beauty blog post, you will learn some basics in color theory through the study of color wheel, to understand how colors can work effectively on your application as a make-up artist, and my make-up artist pro tips on how you can make the theory work effectively into the application.

The topics includes:

  • Color Theory
  • The Color Wheel: Primary, Secondary (or Intermediate), Tertiary
  • Warm & Cool Colors
  • Skin Colors (with Face Shade Finding Guide)
  • Skin Tones: Cool, Warm, Neutral
  • Analogous (Adjacent) Colors

Color Theory

.

Color Theory . the Art of Beauty

Color is the perceptual characteristic of light described by a color name. Specifically, color is light, and light is composed of many colors—those we see are the colors of the visual spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. Objects absorb certain wavelengths and reflect others back to the viewer. We perceive these reflected wavelengths as color.

Color theory: in the visual arts is practical guidance to color mixing and the visual impacts of color combinations. A make-up artist should understand the Basics of Color Theory in order to know how colors work with each other, and how one color will influence another by placing it next to, or on top of each other, or even how the color will result in when you mix them together.

As a make-up artist, you will always have clients ask you: “What colors look best on me?” or “How do I find the best foundation shade?” You know the answer will be different on each individual because each of us is unique in our own way, and we create the best color scheme to compliment, coordinate or match the desired look. Thus, you must have an understand about basic color theory in order to make a good judgement call on the colors for you & your clients.

Make-up Artist vs. Make-up Applicator

By understanding color theory and knowing how to apply the theory onto human facial canvas effectively, will set you apart from being just a make-up applicator!

The Color Wheel

Color Wheel

Color Wheel

To help us understand the basics of color theory, we need a color wheel. Color Wheel is a visual aid in helping us understand the principles of color and the color theory.

The color wheel is divided into three categories: PrimarySecondary (or Intermediate), and Tertiary

  • Primary: the three primary colors are: redyellow and blue. These colors are considered to be foundation colors because they are used to create all other colors.
  • Secondary (or Intermediate): by combining two of the primary colors, three secondary colors are formed. For example, when you mix red with yellow, you will get an orange color. The Secondary colors are: orangegreen and violet
  • Tertiary: the six tertiary colors are made by combining a primary and an adjacent secondary color. These colors are: yellow – orange, orange – red, red – violet, violet – blue, blue – green, and green – yellow.

·

Warm & Cool Colors

Color Wheel: Warm & Cool Colors

Color Wheel: Warm & Cool Colors

The color wheel can be divided into warm and cool colors. By understanding the differences of warm & cool colors, it will help you better in foundation & concealer color matching on different color skin tones.

Warm Colors

Warm Color Spectrum

  • Warm colors are bright, passionate and energetic, and tend to be eye-popping colors. Warm colors include: red, orange, and yellow, and variations of those three colors. 
  • In make-up artistry, reds can be both cool and warm. If the red is blue based (a red with purple or blue undertone), it is cool. If the red is orange based, it is warm. 
Cool Colors

Cool Color Spectrum

  • Cool colors give an impression of calm, and create a soothing impression. Cool colors include: violet, blue, and green.
  • In make-up artistry, the same theory applies with the color green. If a green has more gold/yellow undertone, then it is warm. If a green contains more blue undertone, then it is cool. Whenever most colors have a blue undertone, they will always be a cool color.

Skin Colors

Skin Color

Skin Colors

  • Fair Skin–Light Ivory, Porcelain, Sand, Pale Peach Pink or slightly reddish (rosy) undertones
  • Medium Skin–Yellow, Gold, Beige, Natural, Red-Olive, Yellow-Green
  • Medium-Dark Skin–Honey, Cameo, Copper, Olive, Tan, Golden-Olive, Caramel
  • Dark Skin–Orange-Brown, Red-Brown, Walnut, Almond, Blue-Black, Ebony, Dark Chocolate

Skintones

Different Skintone

Skintone Color & Shades

  • Cool Skintone – the skin has a little pink (rosiness) in their skin. They tend to burn easily under the sun. People who look good in silver jewelry & accessories. When they wearing a cool undertone red lipstick, they look brightened up. Most of the time, their veins are in blue color (take a look at the wrist under natural light).

·

  • Warm Skinton – the skin has a yellow undertone or golden-olive undertone. They tend to tan easily under the sun. People who look awesome in gold jewelry & accessories than silver. When they wearing a warm (orange) undertone red lipstick, they look brightened up. Most of the time, their veins are in green color (take a look at your wrist under natural light).

·

  • Neutral Skintone–the skin has both pink and golden undertone. They look good in both gold or silver jewelry. Most of the time, their vain is in both blue-green color.

·

Analogous Colors

M·A·C PRO Lip Palettes-Analogous Colors

Lip Palettes-Analogous Color Scheme | M·A·C PRO

Analogous (or Adjacent) Colors are created by using three (or more) colors that are next to each (side-by-side colors) on the color wheel.

Too Faced

“Boudoir Eye Palette”-Analogous Color Scheme | Too Faced

Tommy’s Make-up Artist Tips on Analogous Color:

By grouping analogous colors, it helps to create a better color blending effect, and it tends set a stronger mood. For example, to create that sexy & romantic feeling of eye make-up design (eg. boudoir eye palette as seen in the image above), by grouping the cool colors (plum, pink, mauve, plus some neutral colors) together, you can easily achieve that romantic bedroom color scheme for the desired boudoir eye makeup look.

·

Complimentary Colors

Complimentary & Analogous Colors

Complimentary & Analogous Colors

Complementary color schemes are created by combining colors from opposite sides of the color wheel. They bring out each other, they make a visual contrast, thus both colors appear stronger against each other.

Complementary Color Make-up Look

Complementary Color Eye Make-up Look

Tommy’s Make-up Artist Tips on Complementary Color:

If someone has blue eyes, by using gold/bright yellow eye shadow colors on that person, it will amplify the blueness of her eyes; in other words, the gold eye shadow colors will make her blue eyes stand out more than any other colors!

Complementary Color Make-up Look

Complementary Color Make-up Look

Make-up Artist Tips on Complementary Color:

This color theory also applies by wearing a mossy green color eye shadow, and a bright red lipstick. The result of that complimentary color scheme can look nothing but strikingly beautiful.

Lise Watier: Portfolio Professional Correctors Palette

Portfolio Professional Corrector Palettes | Lise Watier Cosmetics

Tommy’s Make-up Artist Tips on Concealer & Color Correcting:

When you mix complimentary colors together (eg. mix red and green), they will combine to produce a neutral gray. It doesn’t mean you want to produce gray color on your face, it just means you will use other color(s) to get rid of (or cancel out) the color you do not like on your skin.

Color Theory in Color Correction

Color Theory in Color Correction

This theory is widely used for color correcting on the face and under eye concealing. For the face, many people like to use color correctors (similar to using shading & high lighting technique), CC Cream (color control cream) or with colored face primers to color correct.

Personally, I think it’s best applied for Under-Eye Concealer Application—if someone has a purple under-eye that you want to conceal, for the best result, use a concealer with yellow undertone, OR use a yellow color corrector to neutralize the purple under-eye first, then use a concealer on top to match the person’s natural skintone.

The same theory works for people who have lots of dark blue under-eye color (which is often found in darker, brownish skintone), it is best to use an orange color corrector (or a mix of orange & ocher colors) first to neutralize the dark blue under-eye, then use a concealer on top to match the person’s natural skintone.

Using color correcting in the under-eye area effectively with the proper method & color, it will bring a nice radiant & lifting effect on the make-up look!

Neutral Colors

Neutral Colors

Neutral Colors

In color theory, a neutral color that is neither warm nor cool. Neutral colors are classy, sophisticated, and extremely wearable. They’re commonly worn on its own, or combined with brighter accent colorsthey can easily be matched with every color. The meanings and impressions of neutral colors are much more affected by the colors that surround them than are warm and cool colors.

  • Black is the strongest of the neutral colors. On the positive side, it’s commonly associated with power, elegance, and formality. On the negative side, it can be associated with evil, death, and mystery.
  • White is at the opposite end of the spectrum from black, but like black, it can work well with just about any other color. White is often associated with purity, cleanliness, and virtue. In the West, white is commonly worn by brides on their wedding day. White is associated with goodness, and angels are often depicted in white.
  • Brown is associated with the earth, wood, and stone. It’s a completely natural color and a warm neutral. Brown can be associated with dependability and reliability, with steadfastness, and with earthiness. It can also be considered dull.
  • Beige is somewhat unique in the color spectrum, as it can take on cool or warm tones depending on the colors surrounding it. It has the warmth of brown and the coolness of white, and, like brown, is sometimes seen as dull. It’s a conservative color in most instances, and is usually reserved for backgrounds. It can also symbolize piety.
  • Ivory and Cream are sophisticated colors, with some of the warmth of brown and a lot of the coolness of white. They’re generally quiet, and can often evoke a sense of history. Ivory is a calm color, with some of the pureness associated with white, though it’s a bit warmer.

You will be surprised that the most universal colors that work for all skin tones are actually the taupe / earthy tone colors. Why? Because “the meanings and impressions of neutral colors are much more affected by the colors that surround them than are warm and cool colors”.

Thus, you will find almost every make-up artist has a neutral color eye shadow palette which contains multiple shades of white, taupe, beige, brown, grey and black colors all in one palette. They are the mostly used colors, and they tend to create the most wearable make-up that suits with all skin tone/colors.

Tommy’s Make-up Artist Tips on Neutral Colors:

Nude & Neutral colors are eternal fashion staples that simply never go out of trend.

By having a palette of neutral colors as show above, you can easily achieve many Prime Looks (beauty make-up looks that is for everyday wear), as well, you can use the eye shadow colors to create  eye liners or fill-in the  eye brows to achieve a natural look.

Monochromatic Colors

Monochromatic color schemes are made up of different tones, shades and tints within one hue. For example, a monochromatic scheme of the color blue would be the Blue Color Family ranging from the lightest sky blue, to a medium shade of ocean blue, to the darkest navy blue.

These are the simplest color schemes to create, as they’re all taken from the same hue.

Similar to the neutral colors we talked about earlier, we find in the cosmetics industry that the neural colors are the most universal colors make-up artists use for everyday on everyone; in addition, different shades of browns and grays in the monochromatic colors are often created in a variety of texture (matte, shimmer, velvet, cream) to produce a handy eye shadow palette for make-up artists to use.

A beautiful face make-up can be achieved by using the monochromatic shades in: foundation, eye brows, eye shadow, blush, contour & highlight, and lip colors! A nude make-up look is often a good example of a monochromatic scheme–easy to create in terms of choosing colors to blend, and the effect is very pretty & classy.

Monochromatic colors are also often found in bridal make-up because it blends beautifully on different shades of one color family.

Other Colors Terminology

Color and Hue

Color and Hue

Hue: the true color of primary colors mixed together, as well as the secondary and tertiary colors mixed together. These colors are basic and intense. Once you have the basic colors, you can adjust them by adding white or black or gray, changing the brightness and density of the colors. This is how you get pastel and muted colors.

Tint, Shade, Tone

Tint, Shade, Tone

Tint: made by adding white to a pure hue. So if you have an intense purple and add white, you’ll get lavender. If you have a bright orange-red and add white, you’ll get a warm orangey-coral.

Shade: made by adding black to a pure hue. If you have a bright red, and add a touch of black to it, you’ll get a deeper, richer red.

Tone: made by adding gray to a pure hue. Gray is a result of mixing complimentary colors together.

Value: the lightness or darkness of a color, as if on a scale from black to white. For instance, navy is a dark value of blue.

Intensity: (or saturation) is the brightness of a color, or put another way, it’s the force of the color. For example, a full force red or a full intensity red is hard to live with.
