Many different makeup trends are popping up this Spring and Summer. One trend that is flattering and easy for everyone to try is the Doll Face. This look seems to stand the test of time, so you can try it any season.
The Doll Face look is fresh and simple. The key areas are: glowing skin, big eyelashes, and baby pink lips.
For glowing skin, you first need to choose the right foundation for your skin type. If you have normal to dry skin, I suggest using loose mineral powder. It provides medium to full coverage with a dewy finish. For oily or combination skin, try a pressed powder foundation to control oiliness and provide a semi-matte finish. Colorescience Pro and gloMinerals offer amazing formulas in loose and pressed foundations with a wide variety of shades. As an added benefit, mineral makeup protects and nourishes your skin.
To get a natural glow, use gloMinerals gloHighlighter. This illuminating cream gives skin a “lit-from-within” shimmer. Dab the highlighter onto cheek and brow bones, using a little at a time. If you’re afraid this creamy product will only add to your oiliness, try gloBlushDuo in Petunia. It will give you a fresh, natural flush.
Now for eyelashes — the bigger, the better! Our inspiration here is classic Twiggy. While most of us don’t have perfect lashes, we’ll need the tools and techniques to create them. The first step is using an eyelash curler. The thought might be intimidating if you’ve never used one, but this tool will quickly become your best beauty friend. I suggest using the gloMinerals gloLash Curler which is specially designed to prevent lash tear out. Because of my stubborn lashes, I typically press and hold the curler at the lash base for 10-15 seconds. For mascara, use RevitaLash Volumizing Mascara in Raven. This fabulous clump-free mascara provides thicker, fuller lashes for an eye-popping finish. With dramatic lashes, keep the rest of your eye makeup simple.
For the final touch, you need pink lips. If you favor lip gloss, try Colorescience Pro Lip Polish in Tickled Pink. This long lasting formula colors, plumps and shines all in one gloss. Another great multi use lip product is gloMinerals Perfect Lip Duo in Pink. This duo contains a lipstick on one end with a gloss on the other. Wear the gloss over the lipstick for extra dimension and shine or try each separately. I recommend applying the lipstick, then just a dab of gloss to the center of lips for the perfect pout.
So remember: the keys to achieving a fresh and flawless Doll Face are mineral powder foundation, highlighting cream or light blush, big beautiful eyelashes and soft pink lips. And voila! You have your perfect doll face which is truly a timeless trend.
