With spring officially upon us soon, there's no need to wait any further to rethink your beauty look.
Fashion takes a welcome walk on the colorful side this season. After all, color is optimistic, bright and beautiful. It turns heads and even warms hearts. Which is why for our Spring/Summer 2017 issue, beauty stylist Evelyn Karbach was assigned to get creative and introduce us to the new beauty season's irresistible and indispensable looks. Model Greta Axenta tests out the latest trends with brilliant results, thanks to Evelyn.
As a self-proclaimed 'perfectionistic artisan' who is unafraid of setting out her rules for the perfect look, Evelyn is one of Austria's leading beauty stylists. Fascinated by transformation, the Salzburg native has a perceptive look when it comes to getting creative with hair and skin and is making waves in her own right.
For the beauty spread, Evelyn chose to work with the fresh and colorful collection of Christian Dior Cosmetics and its new sophisticated COLOUR GRADATION line. The latest collection celebrates a color-loaded spring season and allows you to have fun with bold color, shade by shade, and to adjust a finishing look to your lips per mood and desire by applying the double foam technique with the 2.0 lipstick ROUGE GRADIENT.
Make-up and hair should be the final touch of any outfit. Therefore, it was not Evelyn's goal to imitate the Dior Color Gradation Spring Look one by one, but rather she demonstrates that a good technique, paired with product knowledge, will allow you to adapt and customize looks to uniquely match your own style and outfit.
To highlight the best complexion with unprecedented comfort, Evelyn first needed to choose the correct shade of foundation, which as a base is the most important part for a successful and complete makeup routine. With the new Diorskin Forever Fluid Foundation, which is now available in 28 shades, she easily finds the ideal match to enhance skin tone with stunning perfection. Thanks to the everlasting wear that ensures it stays put for up to 16 hours, it also ensures a flawless complexion from morning to night.
The vivid new collection offers a unique color experience in which pigments are passionately fused onto lips, eyelids and cheekbones. For Evelyn, it was exciting to finish looks by setting her own rules and playing with beauty concepts in drastically different ways, experimenting with different gradient spectrums for more natural or intense looks. The ultra-pigmented COLOUR GRADATION palette, which is available in a blue and coral spectrum, can be used to underline the eyes and adds a bright and sunny touch to an avant-garde look.
Spring is all about soft hues not only in terms of the bold, colorful clothing but also when it comes to makeup. The start of a new season is the perfect time to revive your skin and let your personality shine. LOVEFMD shows you how to maintain that je ne sais quoi wherever you are...
