WOW! Here’s Yasmine rocking the dark lip beauty trend!
Yasmine tell us, what is your normal makeup look?
My normal make up look is very natural, a little kohl liner and nude slightly stained lips. I always like to aim for clear skin and have recently discovered primer and glow tinted moisturisers.
Is there a look that you’ve always wanted to try out?
I’ve always wanted to try out a really glowing glamorous look, I love classic Hollywood and also ‘pretty make up’ so flowing shiny hair and make up that embodies femininity and class. I enjoyed seeing the difference in my look with the dark lips and although it took me out of my comfort zone in both my hair and make up, it was great to have the opportunity to see how different I can look, the dark lips really are glamorous!
What beauty products can you not live without?
Number one is a glow enhancing tinted moisturiser! Oh yes, and I couldn’t live without my eyelash curlers (Shu Uemura), my Khol eyeliner and a pretty nude lipstick
How do you look after your skin ?
I meditate and practice yoga daily. Staying hydrated is a must and also eating lots of nutritious food. I change my cleansing routines according to the seasons so am currently using the Shu Uemera cleansing oils and I really love their moisturisers too. I also have recently discovered Sukin skincare products.
Do you have any beauty tips that you can share with us?
My biggest beauty tip I think is to practice yoga and meditation. Though Laughter and Love are definitely beauty and well being enhancers, so surrounding myself with people and experiences that bring me joy is always a priority on my many to do lists! I like to try beauty products from the many places I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to I particularly love the versatility of Raw Virgin Coconut oil in food, on my hair and skin.
For Yasmine we kept the look sleek and polished. Yasmine has great skin so we only used a sheer moisturising base, and defined her eyes with a soft taupe eyeshadow and 2 coats of mascara. On her lips we used a lip primer to help keep the colour in place and then applied the Mac lipstick.
