Chroming Tutorial Using Makeup Brushes and Lipstick

Chroming: highlighting with lipstick

CHROMING
NATURAL EVOLUTION FROM STROBING?

Is ‘chroming’ just a short term gimmick or is it a natural evolution from strobing?

Pixiwoo's seems to think it could be a bit of both. Cosmopolitan calls chroming “a fancy term for highlighting”.

Whatever you may call it, chroming has taken Instagram and the media by storm.

What is Chroming?

Chroming is a highlighting technique devised by Mac Cosmetics’ Senior Makeup Artist, Dominic Skinner.

Using the newly-released Mac x Mariah Carey lipstick 'All I want' and applying it to the skin rather than the lips, Dominic created a look that features shimmering cheekbones and highlighted parts of the face that catch the light and emphasise the face shape.

With this technique you simply can enhance your features as you might do in strobing – such as your cheekbones, your temples, the bridge of your nose or below your brow bone. Some may wish to emphasise the corners of their eyes, chin, or the cupid's bow.

Chroming: highlighting with lipstick

Our Chroming Tutorial:

 

Chroming Makeup Tutorial Step 1

Depending on your skin tone, apply a lipstick paler than your skintone to highlight the areas of your face you wish to chrome. Next, blend this first layer of lipstick using a brush such as the Conceal Perfector

Chroming Makeup Tutorial Step 2

Gently blend out the lipstick around the desired areas you’re highlighting onto the surrounding skin – just as you might if you were applying a rouge.

Blending in Chroming

Now, take your shimmery or frosty lipstick and apply it over the area you’ve just smoothed out. You can afford to apply thick lines of lipstick depending on how strong you want the final effect to look. It’s a matter of choice.

Taking the same brush that you’ve just used, blend the shimmery lipstick onto your cheekbones, brow bone or chin with a light hand. You don’t want the two layers of lipstick to merge into one - you want the shimmery lipstick to sit on top of the paler lipstick for the right effect.

In its simplest form, that is all there is to achieving the ‘chrome’ effect.

Chroming Makeup Tutorial Step 5

If you wish to be precise about chroming in areas such as the inner corner of the eyes, cupid’s bow or nose bridge, you might want to use a smaller brush such as the Blending Brush.

What brushes will you need?

Enjoyed it?

Like everything creative, it will take a little practice to get the look you’re happy with, but essentially, that’s all there is to it…

What beauty trends can we expect in Spring 2016?

Every design house has its own take on where fashion and beauty looks are headed.

But there is one standout prediction and that is the use of striking red lipstick which was seen at all the major shows and is favoured by DKNY, Celine, Nina Ricci, Oscar De La Renta, Topshop Unique, Giles, Acne, Victoria Beckham and Dolce & Gabbana.

Candy Apple and Snow White Apple Red are the recommended colours by Harpers Bazaar. Mind you, at New York fashion week both Oscar de La Renta and Victoria Beckham sent out their models with half and half – half with striking red lips and half with nude tones. So you can take your pick according to your mood as there is a choice on the horizon.

Red needs to be applied with complete precision, there is nothing forgiving about this colour. As with all the looks of the season, they can all be achieved to a professional level with Nanshy lip brushes.
Other looks that are prominent runners for Spring 2016 are:

  • Emanuel Ungaro has shown us that faux freckles is a look to think about.
  • Louis Vuitton favours an exaggerated lash look.
  • Chloe favours applying black liner around the eye with a natural hair texture.
  • Balmain favours makeup that is pared-back but featuring strong brows and contouring.
  • The Dolce&Gabbana look leans towards luminous skin, soft feline eyes and plump lips – that are in striking red!
  • Prada has really gone out by delivering Gold lips for the Spring 2016 season. One to watch.
  • Moschino played with feline flicks of liquid liner and soft brown lips.
  • Isabel Marant gave us a bare-faced with radiant complexion that is pro cleansed before applying oils for a balmy glow.

Finally, the eye colour used by almost everyone was blue – a colour to keep in mind for 2016.

Happy New Year!

Nanshy at The Clothes Show 2015

There has always been a strong link between fashion and beauty, and as trends in clothing change, so to do the beauty products and makeup colours designed to complement your style. In recognition of the strong relationship between these two, world class event The Clothes Show has expanded its reach to include a greater range of suppliers and products for your pleasure.

Clothes Show 2015 Dates:

Due to take place on the 4th to 8th December 2015, Nanshy is super excited to announce that we’ll be right in the middle of the action, on our stand at HA12 next to Rimmel and NYX. We can’t wait to get to The Clothes Show and meet our fabulous fans, so do come along and say ‘hello’, whichever day you’re planning to come.

What is The Clothes Show?

If you love fashion, you’ll almost certainly have heard of The Clothes Show. Held annually at the NEC in Birmingham, this is the UK’s leading event for everything about clothes, fashion and style. Presented by celebrities and featuring live performances form some of the UK’s most exciting musical talent, it’s one event that has a firm spot in the diary of every fashionista in the country.

Launched in 1989 on the back of the popular TV show of the same name, the event attracts over 150,000 visitors every single year. Established model agencies often use the show as a hunting ground for new talent, and famous faces such as Cat Deeley and Holly Willoughby have been plucked from the crowd in the past.

This year, The Clothes Show has secured sponsorship from tech giant Alcatel OneTouch, and is promising to be bigger and better than ever. Leading the line-up for 2015 are four gorgeous British models, Erika Pattison, Sarah-Ann Macklin, Hannah Dodd and Rhiannon Laslett, collectively known as the ‘Brit Pack’, and who were all scouted at the show over the last decade by Select Model Management.

What happened to the ‘live’?

In line with the significant improvements, investments and changes to the old ‘Clothes Show Live’ format, the event has rebranded itself as ‘The Clothes Show’ for the event in December 2015. The overhaul is not just in the name either, and avid fashion fans can expect an altogether better event this year.

The layout has been improved to give a better flow throughout the event, and there are new and innovative features built in which will enhance your catwalk, shopping and seminar experience. In light of the strong links between fashion and beauty, you can now find more of your favourite brands here at the event for 2015.

Over 500 high street, boutique and designer brands will be housed in newly curated sections, helping you find your favourites and discover new products more easily.

What’s going on at the event?

It’s not just clothes that keep people coming back to the Clothes Show year after year. There’s so much to see and do, if you love fashion and style, you’ll be spoilt for choice at this year’s show. Here’re just a few of the things you can find going on:

  • Plenty of celebrity juice

Select Model Management are this year’s only official model scout agency, and you can visit their stand at the show for advice on getting into modelling as a career.
