Digital filters spurs make-up to go the pop art way
Forget multi-hued rainbow eyes and wearing sheer lace make-up. The latest artistry is getting folks to wear graffiti and pop art on their cheeks, at the side of their face and on their eyelids. It’s edgy, vibrant and gives a funk vibe to the whole party look. Fashion has been embracing graffiti of late on apparel, bags, shoes and glasses. Some years ago, there was a trend of graffiti hair, which made use of hair stencils and spray-on paints to get the look. And now, it’s the turn of make-up to join the fad-wagon.
HERE ARE FIVE STEPS TO GET THE BEAUTY POP-ART LOOK:
First use a face primer that helps even out lines if any, on the face.
Add a layer of foundation on the neck and face.
Draw lines on the nose, eyes and cheeks with face paint to get the outlines for your art.
Fill the lips with a high-shine base colour in pink or red.
Using the face paint, create your art on the cheeks, too. Add eyeshadow and mascara to complete the look.
