After you graduate from cosmetology school, you may have the opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds to help them achieve the look they want. Cosmetologists often work with hair, nails, skin, and makeup to give their clients beautiful looks that are both timeless and trendy. This year, one of the most flattering makeup trends is also one of the most subtle. Earth tones tend to look great on almost any complexion, and they are a smart choice to contrast some of the brighter makeup trends that are also happening right now. Keep reading for a look at the trend of earth tone makeup.
On the Face
As a cosmetologist, you will work with people who have very different goals when it comes to makeup. If you have clients who prefer a more natural look, earth tone makeup is a valuable tool to have at your disposal. Earth tones are an excellent choice for your clients who might not normally wear makeup. Instead of using blush on the cheeks, apply a thin layer of bronzer and blend it in for a natural glow. Tinted moisturizer can also be helpful in creating an even base layer that highlights your client’s intrinsic beauty.
On the Eyes
Eye shadow and eye liner can make bold statements, but sometimes subtle earth tones speak even louder. Create a look with just a hint of shine around the eyes by applying shadow with highlighting powder around the lower lid. Just a thin application of eye liner completes this look, with mascara to emphasize your client’s beautiful lashes. You can also use darker, richer shades of brown around the eyes as long as they are blended and fade out instead of having harsh borders.
On the Lips
Earth tones work well with lipstick and lip glosses as long as the hues are complementary to the rest of the makeup. Simple nude lip gloss creates shine but doesn’t go overboard or beg to be noticed like some bright shades.
