get-glowing natural makeup elle-beauty-editorial

Because we really have enough of contouring. And enhancing our unique features is way better than looking like a bad draft – more than a copy – of some random celebrity, right?

The natural makeup I’m talking about is something that doesn’t necessarily have to BE barely there, but surely, it has to LOOK barely there. I like to spot a deep red red hue of lipstick or a masterful cat-eye, and to me, natural makeup goes hand in hand with balancing every part of a look to get a certain mood.

And I believe that’s the best part of styling. I mean communication. What we say with our face and clothes and in general with our body is part of a greater message we stage at various extents of awareness, and it’s magical.

What changes the game could be anything, like a bag or a messy bun, a pair of sunglasses put over a biker jacket instead of a pair of colored heels.

The point is (sorry if I can’t contain my analytic self… ), Style is an equation.

Where you’re free to change every variable as you like, but you need to always get the same result in order to feel true to yourself. And that invariable result is PERSONALITY. It’s loud and clear, however we try to camouflage it, and it isn’t boring at all.

Now, to demonstrate that [I’m not a paranoid], I put together these amazing editorials so you’ll get half inspired-half convinced, that what looks natural feels alive.
