Shining or Matte? How to Choose Your Skin Tone
The beauty and skin care industry, same as in the case of designer clothing, has its own ever-changing trends. This season, makeup artists are not ready to choose between the highlighter and matting powder. Val Garland at the show Giambattista Valli managed to achieve a perfect matte skin from each model. And conversely, Lynsey Alexander at the Rochas runway show imitated the cold moonlight effect on the models’ skin. The ratio of the fall-winter runway shows with the models having radiant or matte skin is 50/50 this season. It’s one of the manifestations of the global trend towards diversity.
Opposing trends are dictated by consumers, and the beauty industry is giving people more and more choices. For those of you who like the shine, there are plenty of options of the translucent means with reflective particles. For the problematic skin – choose a foundation with a matte finish that will not just mask imperfections but also repeat the look from the runway shows by Loewe and Chloé. The beauty of the trend is that between the matte effect and the extreme glow there is a huge field for maneuver. According to the editorial team of The Fashiongton Post, the main fashion mantra in make-up is the joy of the effect that this makeup has on you. And what is the degree of shine or dullness is needed for joy… well, it’s up to you to decide!
