On winter days, the streets of Paris are dominated by an intense shade of red lipstick. This very feminine accent will charmingly emphasize your beauty and give your self-confidence a boost. Dariia Day, Art & Make Up Creator for Dr Irena Eris, tells us all about how to create a look inspired by the style of Parisian women.
I start with proper skin care. On cleansed and tonified skin, I apply face creams from the Authority series, which I really love as a layer of moisturizer under makeup.
Authority Overall Eye Treatment – it’s a perfect under-eye cream. The cool ceramic massaging tip will help you reduce the swelling on the eyelids.
Authority Instant Luminous Lifting – perfectly smoothens and freshens up the skin, giving it a natural glow. It is worth devoting several minutes in the morning for an auto-massage using this cream. Your skin will get a healthy tone and you will be able to apply your foundation evenly and more easily.
Radiance Fluid – I apply it just like cream to even out the skin tone. I massage the foundation in with my palms – which is a fast way, especially when you’re running out of time in the morning. This foundation also ensure prolonged skincare effects, as it has unique moisturizing properties.
Illuminating Concealer – I apply the concealer in places where the skin needs more camouflage, e.g. in the under-eye area or around each nostril.
Compact Powder – To make the makeup last longer, I dab compact powder on the T-zone; leave the outer parts of the face illuminated by care products.
Choco Bronzer – it’s a multifunctional product – I use it as eyeshadow, for a delicate bronze-smoky eye effect and to model the face contour with
a bigger brush below the cheekbones, jawline and on the temples.
Long Lashes Mascara – it wonderfully highlights the look. I apply the mascara from root to tip of the eyelashes for a full-fan effect.
Real Matt Lipstick – the key element of the Parisian makeup. The sensual, deep “Flamenco Red” color makes an ideal addition to the toned down winter style.
