We love the words of experts. Mickey Contractor is a well-known makeup expert. He is highly sought after by Bollywood divas. He is the one who brought up the nude makeup and also smoky eyes.
His advice can be really useful for all the makeup lovers. Here is a compilation of his tips for a perfect look-
1- This is for all the girls who strive to look fairer. Mickey is totally against going lighter. According to him, it is a faux pas to wear a lighter foundation.
2-He is the king of sultry smoky eyes. We know about his association with MAC. He loves to create smoky eyes using MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack and eyeshadows in Carbon and Folie. He likes Zoom lash mascara and a good highlighter to finish the look.
3- Another important makeup tip from Mickey is to always moisturize your face before applying foundation. It gives a natural look without any flakiness.
4- If you want a subtle monochromatic look but don’t know how to do it, here is Mickey’s tip- apply a cream blush in a nude or peach colour on your cheeks, lips and eyes.
5- He has his words on bronzing too. Bronzing is a huge trend globally and is a great way to look glamorous. Mickey suggests using a bronzer with golden hue as it is easy to work with and looks good on different skin tones.
6- If you have got a deep olive skin tone and want to add definition to your eyes, here is a trick- pair a lighter shade of eye shadow with a darker colour along the crease of your eyes. It will contour your eyes and give them depth.
7- Makeup is an investment and good makeup costs a lot. So if you want to save some bucks Mickey suggests buying makeup in shades and textures that work double time. This way you get more out of a single expensive product.
8- Many girls complain about looking grey after foundation application even if they choose the perfect shade. Mickey advises trying a few shades and wait for 20 -30 minutes. If the shade oxidizes and looks darker, skip it. Pick foundation shade that matches with the tone of your neck.
9- This one is for all the makeup-oholics- Mickey suggests buying only the cosmetics that you will definitely use. Don’t get swayed by the discounts into buying things that are not meant for you. Always check expiry dates before buying any product.
10- Another important tip- Rather than doing makeup according to your face shape, highlight your best features. To convert your subtle day makeup into a glam-evening look, colour your lips with a deep lipcolour. Then add a few coats of mascara and refresh your kohl.
