How to Make up a new Make-Up Trend
Making up a new make-up trend is an exciting process that can help you stand out from the crowd and express your unique style. Whether you’re an amateur starting out in the world of makeup or a professional looking to break new ground, creating a new look is a great way to express yourself. Here are some tips on how to make up your own trend.
Create A Posse
So you want to make a new make-up trend? Well, you know what every good make-up artist has? A posse. A group of friends that are DOWN FOR WHATEVER. Not only will a make-up posse support and encourage you to push the limits on what's possible, but they could also serve as a source of inspiration as they explore looks of their own.
The easiest way to get a posse together is to set a new goal on Elephants, like 'make a new make up trend' and share it with your friends. Those who are interested in participating can opt in to the challenge. Not only will this mean you have a private place to discuss make-up trends and your new looks, but you'll also be able to share progress updates via the Instagram like check-in function. Over time the check-ins build up, and at the end, you'll have an awesome collection of ready to go looks that will track your make up journey from go to wo.
Identifying Your Own Personal Style
Sweet! So the posse is in the place.
The second step in creating a new make-up trend is to identify your own personal style. This means looking at the way you dress, the way you style your hair, and even your lifestyle to gain insight into the kind of look you want to achieve. Do you prefer natural, muted tones or bold, vibrant colors? Do you prefer a classic look or something more modern and edgy? Answering these questions will help you choose the right products and colors that reflect your individual style.
Once you have identified your personal style, you can start to experiment with different looks and products. Try out different shades of eyeshadow, lipsticks, and blushes to find the perfect combination for your look. You can also experiment with different hairstyles and accessories to complete your look. With a little bit of experimentation, you can create a unique and stylish look that is all your own.
Understanding the Basics of Make-Up
Once you’ve identified your own personal style, it’s time to learn the basics of makeup application. Start by familiarizing yourself with the different types of products available, such as foundations, concealers, blushes, eyeshadows, and lipsticks. Get to know the different textures of each product and their various uses. You should also practice blending and contouring to create the perfect look with your products.
It's also important to understand the different types of brushes and tools that are available for makeup application. Different brushes are designed for different purposes, such as applying foundation, blending eyeshadow, and contouring. Investing in quality brushes and tools can make a big difference in the end result of your makeup look.
Choosing Colors and Products to Create a Unique Look
Next, you’ll need to choose the right colors and products to create your own unique look. Consider the overall theme or concept of your look and select colors and products that reflect that idea. Pay attention to the shades, tones, and finishes of the products you choose and remember to experiment with different combinations until you find one that works for you. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different products or to mix bold and subtle colors together.
When selecting colors, think about the mood you want to create. Bright colors can be energizing and cheerful, while muted colors can be calming and soothing. Consider the lighting in the room and how it will affect the colors you choose. You can also use color to create a sense of balance and harmony in the space. Finally, don’t forget to accessorize with items that will bring your look together and make it truly unique.
Incorporating Trends into Your Look
It’s also important to stay up-to-date with the latest trends when creating a new make-up trend. Look for inspiration from runway shows, magazines, celebrities, and social media influencers. Use trends as inspiration for your own look but be sure to make it your own by adding your own unique touches. Remember not to get too caught up in what’s “in” and focus more on creating something that reflects your individual style.
When incorporating trends into your look, it’s important to be mindful of the occasion. For example, if you’re attending a formal event, you may want to opt for a more classic look. On the other hand, if you’re going out with friends, you can be more daring and experiment with bolder colors and styles. Ultimately, the key is to have fun and express yourself through your make-up.
Tips for Creating a New Make-Up Trend
Creating a new make-up trend isn’t as hard as it may seem. Here are some tips to help you get started:
Start small. You don’t have to go all out with your new look; start small by experimenting with different looks until you find something that works for you.
Be creative. Don’t be afraid to try something new or step out of your comfort zone.
Practice makes perfect. Don’t be discouraged if your look isn’t perfect right away; practice makes perfect.
Consult a professional. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or need advice, consider consulting a professional makeup artist who can help you create the perfect look.
Finally, don't forget to have fun with your new look! Experiment with different colors, textures, and techniques to create a unique look that expresses your individual style.
Applying Make-Up to Achieve the Desired Effect
Once you have chosen the products and colors for your look, it’s time to apply them. Start by applying a base layer of foundation or concealer to even out your skin tone and create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup. Then, apply eyeshadow, blush, and lip color in the shades of your choosing. Use an appropriate brush for each product and blend them together for an even finish. Finally, add a few finishing touches such as eyeliner, mascara, and contouring to complete your look.
When applying makeup, it is important to remember to use light, gentle strokes and to blend the colors together. Additionally, it is important to use the right tools for the job. Brushes are the best way to apply makeup, as they provide a more even and natural look than using your fingers. Finally, make sure to use a setting spray or powder to help your makeup last longer.
Sharing Your Look with Others
Once you’ve perfected your look, it’s time to share it with the world! Take some photos of your new look and share it on Elephants. A great addition is to add a tutorial video showing your besties how you achieved the look. If you’re feeling extra ambitious, consider hosting a live event where you can demonstrate the look yourself or have guests try out the look themselves.
You can also reach out to local beauty salons and makeup stores to see if they would be interested in featuring your look. This could be a great way to get your work seen by a larger audience and potentially gain more followers. Additionally, you could reach out to local fashion magazines or websites to see if they would be interested in featuring your look. This could be a great way to get your work seen by a larger audience and potentially gain more followers.
Experimenting with Different Looks to Find What Works Best
Creating a new make-up trend is all about experimentation. You may have an idea of what you want but be willing to try different things until you find what works best for you. Don’t be afraid to try bold looks or use unexpected colors; this is your opportunity to create something unique that reflects your individual style.
Finalizing Your Look and Showcasing It to the World
Once you’ve perfected your look, it’s time for the final step: showcasing it to the world! Consider posting your make-up journey that you've been tracking on Elephants and sharing it with the world. By doing this, you’ll be able to share your creativity with others and inspire them to create their own make-up trends. And who doesn't want that?
