The recent runway looks in NYC, Milan, London and fashion hotspots around the world showed off plenty of hot beauty trends for winter that we teach at our Chic Studios Los Angeles makeup school. In our LA makeup school, we take the expertise and knowledge of these growing trends and cover it in our Fashion + Runway add-on which is included in our Professional Makeup Course. Our students not only re-create some of these runway looks during rotations but they're given a photoshoot at the end of the course to jumpstart their professional portfolio.
As a professional makeup artist, which ones should you know by heart? Here are some top choices:
When doing your model’s lips, think “perfectly imperfect.” One trend displayed by Giambattista Valli was the smudged lip in bold statement colors, but not too precisely defined. Diffused edges on the lips give a dreamy effect to pouty, pursed lips or show off thinner ones.
Create the Look: The trick is looking as if you applied the lipstick effortlessly, or as if your model has just been kissed and smeared a touch. Don’t use a harsh lip liner, and apply the lipstick with more natural blending strokes.
