issue four : the magician

sometimes, the simplest concoctions result in the most powerful outcomes. Makeup Artist Khandiz Joni mixes loose eyeshadows with different waters to achieve dramatic results.

Don’t be fooled by the instilled belief that less is more OR that less is less and more is more. Life is about finding balance and understanding when you need to add a little something ‘extra’ to achieve a desired result or when need to take a component or two away to achieve the most powerful potions.

Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

Most mineral eyeshadows contain high amounts of mica, which is why they shimmer. However, loose mineral eyeshadow applied directly to the face doesn’t quite have the same impact as making it into a paint first. Mixing the loose power into facial toner helps the mica adhere to the skin for longer and gives the colour and the shimmer a little extra oomph!

Lip Tip:

It’s not always easy finding the perfect ‘nude’ lipstick. Fear not dear ones, use a concealer that matches your skin tone to neutralise your natural lip colour, blend over your lip and into your skin for a seamless finish. Add some gloss over the top and a subtle highlight in your cupids bow for the perfect nude lip, like I’ve done above.
