How To Do Ear Makeup?
So could ear makeup designs be the new statement find? Whether this is something you will see on ordinary women or red carpet ones is debatable. But all said and done, it is experimental and creative in all sense of the term.
Let’s find out for ear sake. One thing is for sure, you just can’t look away from it.
Ear Makeup On Fashion Runways
At the Paris Fashion Week, in the year 2014, ear makeup trend became a new thing on the fashion radar. It was fashion designer Anthony Vaccarello who made his models walk down the runway with graphic and inky lobes that were drawn with black liquid liner.
Since then, British make-up artist Pat McGrath went ahead and created a silver statement ear for Louis Vuitton Spring-Summer 2016 at Paris on October 7, 2015 while make-up artist Yadim did full-on glitter ears for the Opening Ceremony.
You might want to ask how the ear makeup is done – by dipping the lobe in a single color. This makes the makeup technique look more like jewelry and less of an art project.
The Inside Of Ear Makeup
Is there anything rocket-sciency about how to do ear makeup? Thankfully none. Ear makeup is just getting creative with your usual makeup.
Well if you are keen on getting a bolder look, you could outline the whole ear and not just the ear lobe. Take a look at the visual below which uses the whole body part, ear in this case, and how it gives it a glittery feel.
If you are the one eyeing ear embellishment beyond just earrings and are the one to take risks, you have landed up into the right page. Ear makeup is almost like a temporary tattoo. All you need to do is work with colours and textures in order to make your ear lobes the centre of attention.
All you have to do is outline the ear using an eye pencil in rich hues such as cobalt. Or keep it on a subtle tone with a hint of shimmer on the ear lobe spot you’d like to focus on.
