We all have our favourite music genres to listen to, and sometimes they’re closer to the way we look than we think. Here are three of our favourite music genres to emulate as beauty looks that are easy and fast to achieve.
Think slept in eyeliner, spidery long eyelashes, and porcelain skin. Prime your face with your favourite make up primer, and then press a good amount of full coverage foundation into your skin with a sponge. We love Shu Uemura’s Lightbulb Foundation for the natural look it gives, despite the full coverage. Set your foundation with a transparent loose powder. Then, line around your eyes with a kohl pencil and blink several times for a natural smudge. You can also use your fingers to blend out the product if you feel it needs to be blended out more, but go in again with the kohl liner for a good intensity. Swipe on several coats of mascara, not waiting for each coat to dry so you can achieve the spidery, clumpy lashes. For the final steps which you can skip if you think its too much, line your lips with a liner that matches your lipstick colour and fill them in. You’ll be ready to rock out in no time at all.
Let’s talk pop with a pop of colour on the eyelids. We’re used to seeing colourful eyeliner looks, but now it’s time to take out those colour eyeshadows of your and go bold or go home. Prime your eyelids with a great eyeshadow primer and pop on your favourite outstanding shade of eyeshadow. Our favourite so far is Chanel Beauty’s Illusion D’Ombre in Impulsion, a sweet pink shade. Pack the colour onto your lids with a dense, short bristled brush, or even your finger and blend above the crease for a beautiful gradient. Keep your cheeks looking fresh and youthful with a soft pink and your lips hydrated and natural.
Let’s go with golden natural, earthy tones for this genre of music. Indie’s always cool, fresh, and very natural, opting for browns and nudes whenever possible. Start off by priming your eyelids to keep your shadow from budging throughout the day. Opt for a a shimmery gold shadow and blend on the lids up to your crease. Extend the shadow down to your lower lashline stopping just a quarter short of the inner corner of your eye. Pat on a pale or white shimmer in the inner corners to brighten your look. Line the eyes, keeping close to your lash line to give volume to your lashes. Keep your brows full, thick and slightly unkempt, so fill in any empty spaces and use a brow gel to to comb the hairs upward to keep it looking voluminous. Instead of using a blush, blend a bronzer out on your cheeks and pat on a nude colour onto your lips.
