Contouring or sculpting is weaving into the beauty trend rapidly with brands competing with each other by releasing contouring palette. What if I tell you that you do not need to run to the store to get a dedicated palette to achieve the ‘sculpted’ look? All you need is a few existing products and you are good to go!
LAKMÉ, the first cosmetic brand to introduce makeup to Indian woman in India since early 1952 and also one of the fast growing cosmetic brand in Malaysia recognises the sculpting beauty trend currently and held an event recently to share some of the makeup tips and introducing the LAKMÉ Absolute range of products.
Face contouring has got to be my current makeup technique obsession. It is the easiest way to reshape the face shape without the need to go under knift. All you need is a some good product and technique. By using LAKMÉ Absolute Mattreal Skin Natural Mousse Foundation (RM73.30), apply a shade that matches your skin tone all over the face as foundation. For contouring, choose a shade or two darker and apply under cheekbone blending downwards to emphasize and refine the cheekbone and jawline. This foundation sets to matte so no setting powder is needed. Lastly use LAKMÉ Absolute Face Stylist Blush Duos (RM51.80) on the cheeks for a hint of color, as if your cheeks are blushing from within 😉
Sculpted Eye Look
The jet black LAKMÉ Absolute Kohl Ultimate (RM57.30) that is water resistant and smudge-proof once it is set are recommended to outline the contour of the eyes for a sculpted eye look. It has unique moisturizing ceremides that soothe and soften your lashes as well. Line the entire upper lid and lower lid close to the lashes and smudge away using the smudger for a smokey finish. For a high definition look, line it on the lower waterline as well. Wear it on your lower waterline for a high definition look.
To complete the sculpted eye look, use LAKMÉ Absolute Flutter Secret Dramatic Mascara (RM50.80) to coat the lashes with layers and layers as it has long term curl memory formula that gives your lashes volume and color.
LAKMÉ came out with 12 dramatic new matte lipstick shades and it is said to be the perfect lipstick to contour and sculpt the lips. Pick a hot red LAKMÉ Absolute Sculpt Studio Hi-Definition Matte Lipstick (RM39.90), draw an X mark on the cupid’s bow. Trace the cupid’s bow to the corners of the lips with one stroke. That is all you need to get a chiseled, long wear experience with a rich matte finish.
For all the products mentioned and used to create the ‘Sculpted’ look, LAKMÉ will be compiling and launching a product set in June 2016. It will be made available at Guardian stores for RM99.90 (total worth RM132.10, save RM32.20), which consists of LAKMÉ Absolute High-Definition Sculpt Lipstick, LAKMÉ Absolute Ultimate Kohl and LAKMÉ Absolute Flutter Secret Dramatic Mascara.
