YOUCA’s Formula For a Fine Face Vol. 1: Oriental Face

19.August.2019 | FASHION / FEATURES

Popular Japanese hair and makeup artist YOUCA is an analyzer of the latest makeup collections. In this new featured series, YOUCA reveals the secret formula to easily incorporating today’s makeup trends into your daily routine. In Volume 1, she showcases midsummer oriental-style makeup. Learn the formula for a fine face by following her trendy tips and tricks.

Oriental Face Formula = Turquoise Line x Terracotta Lipstick + Flower Print

YOUCA: “The 2019 fall/winter collections have been adventurous with eye makeup colours, featuring things like paint makeup and graphic eyeliner. Those are hard to incorporate with your everyday looks, so I recommend just using them in one spot. I’m serving makeup colours that go well with the botanical look, something which is in fashion right now.”

Turquoise Line: Go casual with a single coloured line drawn from your eye

What we are focusing on here is the single coloured eye makeup line. By choosing a colour like turquoise, which is far away from skin colour, it highlights the eyes more. With this style you are looking to make the eyeline stand out, so we want to be low-key with the eyeshadow. All YOUCA has done here is used grey eyeshadow (pictured top right) which is spread thinly. The eyelashes are not raised and only a little mascara has been applied. Then, using the eyeliner (pictured bottom left), she has drawn a thin line just above where the double eyelid ends. Simply apply the colour as it is without flicking it up for a more effortless eye.

Terracotta Lipstick: Sophisticated grown-up lips without looking overly pop

The colour of terracotta, which is a type of earthenware, goes really well with floral designs. It’s also a perfect match with the turquoise eyeliner. Just put a little bit of the terracotta lipstick (pictured bottom right) on your lips and pat it with your finger to blend. Keep in mind that the eyes are the main focus so don’t emphasize your lips too much.

 

To make your eye makeup stand out even more, try to go makeup-less as much as possible on your skin. YOUCA is using the purple makeup base from Shinseido (pictured bottom) instead of foundation which gives a more no-makeup naked look. For her cheeks, she’s using the Cream Cheek (pictured top right) by Celvoke and applying it thinly to her cheeks to give her a more grown-up look.
