4 Ways to Incorporate Editorial Makeup into Your Routine
Updated: Sep 14, 2021
As you look through fashion magazines for stylish inspiration, do you ever wonder how you can incorporate Editorial Makeup in Purley into your beauty routine?
As a professional makeup artist in Purley who has regularly created editorial looks, I can tell you that this idea is not just attainable, but also a great way to build your makeup skills!
Here are my 5 PRO tips, suitable for makeup enthusiasts at any level!
1. Skin Is In
In editorial makeup, the skin is always kept fresh and natural, and rarely over-powdered. I always use either a lightweight foundation, a BB cream or a moisturizing tint on the skin when prepping the model for an editorial shoot.
This helps to create an almost “see through” look on the skin. To add longevity to your foundation, build-up coverage only where needed with concealer (such as acne spots, scars or dark circles). In terms of using powders, whether that’s on location or under the hot lights in a studio, I only powder the “hot spots” (usually around the nostrils and the T-zone). Leave the rest of the skin looking fresh and effortless.
My favorites in this category include the Hourglass Illusion Tint, and the Fenty Beauty Concealers and Powders. 2. Less is more Unlike glam makeup, the editorial is more about an understatement (sometimes with one focus). Pick one component to improve, or make light of all provisions. Now and then publication work can call for shading all over, which looks astonishing however probably won't be great consistently. For this situation, pick the component you need to upgrade most and work with that or make light of the entirety of the elements to keep the whole look extremely straightforward (and explore different avenues regarding surfaces rather than according to the following point). 3. Mix up your textures
Gloss, shimmer, pearl, and soft matte are all very popular textures to use in editorial work, as they photograph beautifully and further enhance the look of the skin.
Textures can be colored or clear and applied to all features, or just one focus feature.
My favorites in this category include the NYX Cosmetics Shine Killer, and any of the BECCA highlighters.
