There is a look, that is, the more plain the makeup, the better it looks!
Liu Yifei's makeup in "Go to a Windy Place" is a word "light" as a whole. Eyeshadow and contour are not visible in makeup, and these large patches of color are rarely used to disrupt facial proportions and maximize her perfect bone appearance.
As can be seen from the close-up, Liu Yifei's own skin is also in excellent condition, fair and shiny, and does not need too much modification to present a uniform and clear base makeup effect.
If you want to achieve the purpose of improving the complexion on the basis of plain makeup, the focus should be on the eyebrows and lipstick. The eyebrow color should not be filled too solidly, but pay attention to the creation of hairy flu, the lipstick chose a moist texture, and the low-saturation bean paste color is natural and gentle. This light makeup idea not only preserves the natural purity of plain makeup, but also greatly enhances the overall refinement.
Zhang Jingyi's "Light Me Up, Warm You" is also based on boiled water makeup, especially the campus line in the early stage. Primer and concealer are the focus of this look, which is both lightweight and wear-free and creates the natural glow that only good skin can have. At the same time, the small miscellaneous hairs under the eyebrows are retained, and the facial white space is not destroyed with too many contouring highlights, and the vivid original feeling is about to come out of the screen!
Zhang Jingyi's full bone appearance, smooth facial lines give her an overall dignified and atmospheric style, the facial features are large, but the lines are not sharp, and the round blunt direction retains her gentle and introverted temperament, full and slightly upturned lips, and injects a trace of stubbornness into her without admitting defeat.
Such a look, the more plain the makeup, the more prominent the sense of story brought to her, and the more the audience can see the innocent and vivid vitality, this face was born for the big screen!
Song Huiqiao's makeup in TV series has always been dominated by light makeup, and there are few characters with heavy makeup. Especially in the recent word-of-mouth revenge drama "Dark Glory", Qiao Mei's makeup is so light that people can't help but wonder, "Is this really plain?" "The degree!
Such a plain makeup can even allow the audience to clearly observe the small flaws on the actor's face, retain some of the "imperfections" on the face, so that this character carrying hatred has a more stoic tension, and the audience is more able to empathize with it and sense of substitution when watching the play.
Qiao Mei's other romantic roles are almost all taking the oxygen finish route, such as Che Xiuxian in "Boyfriend", which highlights the harmony of the facial features with a clear finish. The lip color was changed to a bright coral color, and it is difficult to hide the quiet and elegant atmosphere in still photos, which perfectly matches the aesthetic style of the TV series.
The state they show in front of the camera often makes many wonders: "Aren't they really appearing without makeup?" The answer is obviously not, although they are naturally beautiful, their appearance and plain state are impeccable, but after all, they are photogenic, and high-definition lenses can be more demanding than real life.
To bring out your best, the makeup needs to be light, as clear as boiled water, but with a translucent and delicate effect. Just like Qian Songyi's classic line says: make up to be pixel-colored, and make up the same as PS... In other words, it is naturally beautiful without intention.
The advantage of plain water makeup is that it does not destroy the integrity of the facial features, and it looks more delicate than the real plain makeup. As an ordinary girl, if you have a good skin foundation and don't want to let too many makeup marks such as eyeshadow, highlight, blush, false eyelashes destroy your style, or can't figure out the skills of heavy makeup lightening, then you can learn this plain water makeup!
Don't think that plain makeup really doesn't wear anything, but to integrate delicate details into the facial features without destroying the original appearance. Enhance the texture in subtlety, making people look beautiful again without imperceptible finish. Therefore, the details in the makeup are particularly important, and many times it is also a must for plain beauty!
I believe that the audience who has watched "Ignite Me, Warm You" must have been beautiful by Zhang Jingyi, right? In addition to the embellishment of lip color, there is almost no sense of color on the cheeks, highlighting the beauty of youth is the fullness and stubbornness that does not need to be carved, and the fair and shiny skin makes her more in line with Zhu Yun's personality, as beautiful and exquisite as a princess.
The star makeup artist in the play, Teacher Shi Hui, captured the essence of the characters when creating Zhu Yun's makeup. Zhang Jingyi's skin tone itself belongs to warm yellow tones, using the color correction of the base makeup to bless orange lip makeup, so that her overall skin tone has changed from warm naughty to pink naughty, and after showing white, she is like a little princess, and her skin is like jade.
A smile presents an indescribable bright charm, so that it is in the same frame as Chen Feiyu, whose skin color is cold and complex, the picture is more beautiful and youthful, and the CP is full.
Many girls tend to ignore the key to the base makeup when applying makeup, and the mottled and dull base makeup will look dirty even if there are more color blessings. Giving the skin a delicate and shiny appearance, like shiny porcelain, can make the overall look more textured, and your makeup has already been more than half successful.
And to create a delicate and translucent feel, you don't have to apply liquid foundation to your face, there are three key steps in base makeup, skin tone correction, liquid foundation brightening, and topical concealer. And if you want to change from warm naughty to pink naughty, learning color correction can achieve such an effect visually.
When it comes to color correction, we first look for contrasting colors based on the original skin. Start with the overall brightening, choose the brown color of the skin with peach pink to brighten, and the yellowish skin tone to choose purple for yellowing. Choose a coloured barrier cream or primer for a light base.
After the overall brightening, the subsequent local repair is carried out, and the part must be applied in a small amount and multiple times. Like dark circles, first use yellow concealer to sweep the heaviest blemishes first, and after blending outward, a thin layer is already very retouching. If it is cyan, purple, dark circles or eye bags, choose coral color for retouching, the invisible effect is very obvious.
If the face has acne marks or redness, choose the green in the concealer disc for repair, use a brush to apply lightly, and compare before and after coloring.
Simplify eye makeup
In addition to the base makeup, the second thing that is pure finish is eye makeup with a look but not too much color modification, amplifying its own eye advantages without destroying the original feeling, so there is no need for false eyelashes and colorful eyeshadow with a strong sense of presence at this time.
Just use the inner eyeliner to add to the look.
The inner eyeliner outlines the eyes along the eyelashes, and the inner eyeliner uses eyeliner or eyeliner glue as much as possible, which is more delicate and invisible, and at the same time is not easy to wear makeup, which is very friendly to novices.
Keep your lashes and curl them.
Asians themselves have relatively straight eyelashes, and after curling their eyelashes, they can also enlarge their eyes without destroying their own eye shape. Clamp the lashes about 1mm from the base of the lashes, pause for a few seconds and gently pull outward and upwards for a more natural curl stroke.
The eyebrows are stylized and hairy
If you want to grasp the plain look, the hairy but not rigid wild eyebrows are indispensable! Like Liu Yifei's eyebrows, the eyebrow shape is light and the eyebrow tail is not obvious when pure and plain, but after blessing the meticulous eyebrow shape, the facial contour is clearer, and the facial features are gathered to make it more charming.
For the perfect wild eyebrows, a combination of brow powder and pencil works best. Choose an eyebrow color that is one size lighter than the hair color, and it is not easy to produce a feeling of weight and weight on the face. You can appropriately leave some of the original eyebrows at the end of the eyebrows, which is more hairy flu.
Novices choose eyebrow powder to better create a natural eyebrow shape, first outline the eyebrow shape, then fill the eyebrow color, be sure to fill it in a small number of times, and use the eyebrow brush to make the eyebrow color too soft.
Then use a dark coffee pencil to gently trace the shape of the lower and upper edges of the eyebrows to make the eyebrows delicate and tangible, and finally you can adjust the color with the eyebrow dye to create a hairy flu, and the natural and tangible eyebrow makeup is complete.
