How to Look Like a Beauty Icon
18 Février 2015
Every woman has a beauty icon- someone who is so gorgeous and has their signature look that she wants to emulate on herself. For some, it’s Hollywood legends Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn, and for others it’s someone like their grandmother. Either way, one thing is for certain- all beauty icons have their signature look that gave them their title. Here are a few ways to look like a beauty icon.
To start off, you need a nice canvas to work with. Makeup goes on easier and looks its best when the skin is prepped properly. To get great skin, exfoliate a few times a week to get rid of dead skin, and then follow up with a rich moisturizer (you can use Shinso Glow and Essence for both of these routines). After following a skincare routine like this, you’ll start to see results after a few weeks. You’ll notice your makeup goes on easier and looks a lot better.
Next, it’s time to find shades that work with your hair, eyes and skintone. What makes a beauty icon stand out from regular women is that she knows these things and works with them to her advantage. If you have lighter hair, eyes and skintone, you generally are cool-toned. If you have darker hair, skin or eyes, you generally are warm-toned. Cool tones look best in silvery shades, like blues, purples and greens, while warm tones look best in gold shades, like reds, oranges and browns. If someone compliments you when wearing a certain shade of clothing or makeup, take notes. That is generally what works best for you.
Embrace your imperfections. Whether it’s a mole above your lip or very thick eyebrows, every woman has something unique and special about her appearance. Embrace it and make it work for you- it will become your “signature”, and all beauty icons have a signature.
