Makeup Tips for Fashion Stylist Look

Aug 31, 2008
Most of us just can't wait to finally get out our summer clothing and start showing some leg...

I'm sure you've all seen what I've been seeing: women in summer skirts with very white legs, sandals on "winter" feet, and a bunch of women (myself included) who are freezing cold, because the second there's a little sunshine, we're in short sleeves J.

I'm sure that you, as I, are passionate about beauty and personal image. I'm sure that you like to show your best side, but you're probably a little confused with the changing of the seasons. That's why today I've decided to show you some tricks that we professionals use to quickly and easily refresh our image and adapt to the new season. I promise that these makeup artist tricks won't leave you out in the cold!


I admit, it's still a bit of a mystery, and it is better to be white than orange. However, unless you spent your spring vacation on the beach, chances are that your skin is a little pale, even greenish looking, and a little color really brightens up anyone's face (and body).
Self-tanners really will do the trick - you'll look phenomenal! However, there are some steps you should take to get the results you're looking for with your self-tanner.

Here are some hints:
  • Exfoliate, but not with a horsehair glove or the like. Use an exfoliator that contains moisturizing oils. If you don't, your skin will be very dry and the self-tanner won't be absorbed evenly over your skin.
  • Make sure you've dried yourself off completely before application or you'll get patchy results.
  • Choose a self-tanner suited to your skin. You can find products for light or dark skin.
  • If you have sunspots or if your upper lip tends to darken when you sunbathe, don't use self-tanner on your face, because in most cases it makes the uneven pigmentation more obvious.
  • Choose a tanner made especially for the face, but if you apply the product correctly, the effect would be the same anyway.
  • Wash your hands well and let the product dry and be completely absorbed before you get dressed.
  • The first day after application, I recommend wearing dark-colored clothing.
  • To intensify your tan, apply an iridescent moisturizing lotion. You may want to put a touch of bronzing powder over your collarbone.

A summertime face is always flattered by some face-framing golden or chocolate brown highlights (depending on your natural hair color). They will lighten your face and add a touch of sun, like you've just been to the Carribean.

Another option is to use a color wash in the same shade as your hair to add natural-looking shine.

Of course, if you're feeling bold, there's nothing like changing your hair color to overhaul your image and feel like new. But before making any radical changes, make sure that your new shade goes with your style.


First of all, if you're going to wear sandals, get a pedicure! If you can't go to a salon, give yourself one at home, but avoid wearing sandals with unpainted toenails or without preparing your feet for the summer.

My favorite colors are:

For hands, the eternally stylish French manicure, and for feet, color and more color. Chanel has a new dark blue that is just beautiful, and the pink shades that Dior has put out are very sexy. I prefer colorful toenails and discreet fingernails.
Once you're a little more tanned, you can go for an orange enamel.


Good question. Now is the time to take out those shirts with quarter-length or long sleeves, especially those in white. If you feel warm, roll your sleeves up to your elbow. Wear a straight pant and peep-toe sandals (you know, the shoes with the open toes), and you'll look fabulous.

If you have a cardigan, you can wear it with almost anything... Wear it over a long or short-sleeved shirt, or even over one of those dresses that they're showing so much again this summer, that you probably have from last season.

Colored pashmina shawls are another article of clothing that can help you add a touch of color to your look, plus they can help keep you warm if it's chilly out. Choose one in fuchsia, yellow, green, or electric blue - it'll be super-flattering.

A fine black leather or suede jacket can be a great go-to piece to pair with almost everything.
