MY POINT OF VIEW by Cecilia Minelli,,en,The summer has not yet arrived but to protect the skin from the damage of the sun's rays it is well before now to use a small precaution,,it,Even the spring sun can indeed be harmful and unlike many who think "even if we are in the shade" we risk compromising the skin,,it

Today I want to share with those who follow my small book the meaning of some English words that we often meet reading fashion magazines in the description of some products and some techniques used in the fantastic world of Make Up.If fact, many are known, and we know well the significance such as the technique of smoky eyes or countouring, the sunkissed skin that I mentioned in one of my previous projects, many others are known to us in the industry but leave doubts in those who read them for the first time.

I would start with a brief on lipsticks, which as we all know in English are called LIPSTICK. That said we all know that there are different types of textures, from the most subtle and translucent defined or SHIMMER SHINE, the classic, opaque effect to those defined MATT or VELVET. So when we read the description of a certain type of lipstick on a magazine from the description we will know what kind of lipstick wears the model or does it bring to market the company.

As far as the eye pencils, English EYE PENCIL if we do not find the specific or EYELINER KHOL or KAJAL will mean that it can be used as eyeliner inside the eye so as kohl. During this time you definitely will prefer to use something waterproof (and then sweat and high temperatures) then WATERPROOF WATER RESISTANT or translated respectively in "water-proof" or "water-resistant".There are also some of the techniques that take Make Up English names but translated immediately make us understand the meaning of the technique to achieve or utlizzata by makeup artist.

Some examples:

BAKING-MY POINT OF VIEW by Cecilia Minelli

BAKING o CAKING, deriving from "to bake" or "bake" and is a technique used to fix the make-up with powder. We use this technique when you have the need to fix for hours and hours makeup without undergoing changes, and then in Red Carpet occasions, for example, or other social events. It consists in applying an "abundant" layer of powder powder (LOOSING POWDER) immediately after applying the Fund and the correction in cream and let sit for at least 5 minutes. Then we're going to fade the excess with a soft bristle brush. That's why some stars seem much powdered in photographs. From mistakes technique our model will seem full of powder even in pictures, so it must be done carefully ... like all the other techniques of the rest.

BROW SCULPTING is nothing but a dedicated technical eyebrows. Translated literally means SCULPTURING eyebrows. Today there are many techniques to define and reshape the eyebrows, from the classic pencil (brow pencil) the eyeliner, Get it and come back, dust.

CAT LINER or cat's eyes, immediately it makes us imagine a form of elongated eye that is one of utlizzate techniques to apply eyeliner when we want to stretch the eye of the model that our make or our.


COLOR BLOCKING is instead an application techniques eyeshadow certainly less known than the famous smoky eyes and certainly much more artistic. This fact inspires art and plays with saturated colors, but applied in a non blurred but clear and decisive.


CUT CREASE means instead cut the crease. It 'a technique born in the 60s and consists of cutting sharply (to cut) the crease eye eyelid (crease) with a darker eye shadow and the final finish can be more or less smooth.

COLOR FEVER is instead an application of the blush technique that involves the gradient of the same on the temples instead cheeks.

Draping-MY POINT OF VIEW by Cecilia Minelli

Draping is instead the technique used to discover the face with blush and then instead of focusing on the use of typical bronze tones of the land and the products contouring with this technique we're going to take advantage shades from pink to coral fishing. Just "draping" ( to drape) or follow the natural bone structure of the face according to the effect that we want to get deciding where to add volume, which raise or lower.

OVER LINING or LIP CONTOURING means "above a line around the lips" that you get slightly sbordando to acquire our mouth or to that of the model that our make some volume millimeter more.

EFFECT SPIDER is a special technique of applying mascara that makes the eyelashes similar to the cobweb (spider). It is carried out by applying the volumizing mascara for at least three times and then using the tip of the brush in a vertical manner we are going to shape the tip of the joining eyelashes.

But the world of Make Up is very broad and does not suffice an article to tell you about everything I want so I hope at least to have given you today a little information in more and we'll see you soon with my little book.
