It just takes two minutes to have a chip-free manicure

In case you didn’t know, it’s your second coat of polish that determines how long your manicure lasts. As Deborah Lippmann for Lancôme explained backstage at Jason Wu (the brand's Vernis in Love in Beige Romance was used in the show) you need to let the solvents evaporate before applying that second coat. 

Forse non lo sapevate ma a determinare la durata di una manicure è la tempistica della stesura del secondo strato di smalto. Come ha spiegato Deborah Lippmann per Lancôme nel backstage di Jason Wu (dove ha usato il Vernis in Love in Beige Romance), bisogna aspettare che i solventi evaporino prima di applicare quel secondo strato.

The Foundation according to Kabuki

Who ever said that one single foundation is enough? Not Kabuki for sure. In fact, in his “modest” opinion, to have a flawless skin we should use a matte formula on most areas and then a creamier, dewy one on our bone structure and any other areas you want to highlight. This will help make your skin look more luminous.

Chi l’ha detto che un solo fondotinta basta? Secondo Kabuki per apparire perfettamente perfette bisogna usarne due: uno matte e uno cremoso e dewy. Il primo va steso su quasi tutto il viso, il secondo, invece, sulla struttura ossea (zigomi, centro del naso, centro della fronte) e su tutte quelle zone che richiedono più luce. Il risultato? una pelle decisamente più luminosa.

Bando alle dita usate come pennelli? No, per coprire le imperfezioni le dita sono gli alleati della sfumatura perfetta, basta solo prima applicare un correttore sul brufoletto con un pennello a punta e poi tamponarlo “a mano”, come da suggerimento di Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Stylist.
