Makeup artist Sergei Naumov shows makeup for those who are too lazy, have no time or just reluctance to bother.
When Sergei Naumov was developing his tools, he thought about those who do not want to make unnecessary movements and keep in their head “this is where you need a tighter brush”. His favorite make-up is fast, not overloaded with details, moderately careless. For example, this:
He showed a quick make-up option on our trainee Lisa (she’s just a student, and loves to sleep, how well some things combine 🙂
And we counted the minutes – what needs to be paid more attention, and what we can not slow down on.
Timing 0:00 – 0:05 seconds: mix tone Phenomenon with liquid highlighter Aurora Ocean Drive
Sergey Naumov: Foundation Phenomenon was used on the set of the new film “North Wind” by Renata Litvinova. He looks cool in the frame, gives a beautiful blur, and in real life you look – the skin is almost matte. No wet or oily sheen.
Why mix it with a liquid highlighter?
Sergey Naumov: If you want a light, shiny yet long-lasting finish, this is the super option. You get a) light reflection, b) a lighter texture, c) you can adjust the tone of the foundation. Here, as such a corrector-adjuster, I chose Aurora Ocean Drive in a warm cream color, but in general this way you can use any liquid highlighters, except those with large, obvious glitters.
Timing 00:05 – 03:00: apply tone with a sponge (or fingers)
Sergey Naumov: Lisa has quite intense fluff on her cheeks, and there are peeling. In order not to emphasize them, it is better to apply the tone with impressive sponge movements. I use the convex side of the sponge to work out the entire face (the “ass” is rounded, so it gives a more even coverage). And the narrow tip is for the wings of the nose.
Work as well as possible on the cheekbones, nose, chin, center of the forehead. These areas are the first to draw attention to when you are talking to someone one-on-one. It is better if the coverage is denser there.
Timing 03:00 – 04:30: Apply concealer
We remember how we drew triangles and circles in copybooks.
Sergey Naumov: These arts are not just for fun – I do color correction. A yellowish T29 concealer (large triangles) will neutralize blue. Pink X28 (small triangles and circles) will balance the color so the under-eye area is tone-on-tone with the rest of the face.
Severe bruising is difficult to cover without color correction. If I used one concealer of the same color as the skin, then the area where the capillaries show through turned out to be a dull gray. Therefore, it is better if you have two shades, and one of them with a yellow / salmon undertone.
Blend it with your fingers or a sponge – as usual.
Timing 04:30 – 05:30: sculpting
For sculpting we use Phenomenon shade X40. If you remember, we took Phenomenon SPF20 in shade X20 as the main tone. If you have two foundation, darker and lighter, then, in fact, no separate special sculptor is needed. You can use a dark shade of tone instead. Apply and shade with the same Mouse sponge that we used to make the canvas.
Sergey Naumov: Do not press on the sponge. The less pressure, the less the area in contact with the skin. Accordingly, you can easily apply the product exactly where you were going..
By the way, pay attention, I deliberately darken the area not under the cheekbones, but slightly above. Slightly I go to their protruding part. What’s the trick? The higher the cheekbone shadow lies, the higher the cheekbones themselves seem. If you want a lifting effect, try this trick.
Timing 05:30 – 05:45: eyebrows
We tint and fix them with brown mascara. Yes, for eyelashes. It can be easily used for eyebrows instead of a fixing tint gel. Just try not to press on the brush to avoid staining your skin.
Timing 05:45 – 08:45: eye makeup
Now the fun part is eye makeup without brushes. Seryozha suggests using lipstick. If you’ve never tried it, imagine how many new creamy eyeshadow you will have.
So, Seryozha is putting on Lipstick Creme Indian Affair with a finger pad. Asks Lisa to look in the mirror directly in front of her and applies it to the fixed part of the eyelid near the outer corner.
Shades all over the movable eyelid towards the temples.
On the lower eyelid, the lipstick can be applied directly from the stick and also shaded with the pad of your finger.
Sergey Naumov: The lipstick is creamy and will of course roll up in a crease. I like this effect. During the day, I wouldn’t even tweak. But if it bothers you, just fix it with powdery shadows (in color or not – according to your mood, as you like), and everything will be ok.
Timing 08:45 – 09:15: eyelashes
Apply Suprematic Ultra Black mascara.
Timing 09:15 – 10:00: blush and lips
Directly from the stick, apply lipstick to the apples of the cheeks as a blush and blend with a sponge.
We tint the lips with Lip Gloss Dee Dee.
How is it? It’s cool for us!
