Cut Crease Magic
Why It’s Essential for Salon Suite Renters: A perfectly executed cut crease can transform a simple eye look into a work of art. Salon suite renters know that every client wants to feel like a superstar and a flawless cut crease can do just that. It’s versatile, suitable for various eye shapes, and adds drama to any makeup look.
Step 1: Prime those lids. Start with a good eye primer to create a smooth canvas for your masterpiece.
Step 2: Define the crease. Using a precise brush, carve out the crease with a matte eyeshadow shade that complements your client’s desired look.
Step 3: Cut it clean. Apply concealer or a light eyeshadow shade to the area below the crease, creating a sharp, defined line.
Step 4: Blend and shimmer. Blend the edges to perfection and add a shimmer on the lid for that wow factor.
Pro Tip: Try an ombre-cut crease by using different shades within the crease for extra drama.
The Power of Contouring
Why It’s Essential for Salon Suite Renters: Contouring isn’t just about sculpting cheekbones, enhancing facial features, and creating dimension. As a salon suite renter, mastering this technique can help your clients achieve the illusion of perfection.
Step 1: Choose your weapons. Select a matte contour shade a few shades darker than your client’s skin tone and a highlighter a few shades lighter.
Step 2: Map it out. Apply the contour shade along the hollows of the cheeks, jawline, and sides of the nose.
Step 3: Blend, blend, blend. Blend the contour lines seamlessly, making sure there are no harsh edges.
Step 4: Illuminate. Apply the highlighter on the high points of the face: cheekbones, brow bone, and down the center of the nose.
Pro Tip: Use cream products for a natural, dewy finish or powders for a more defined look.
Perfecting the Winged Eyeliner
Why It’s Essential for Salon Suite Renters: Winged eyeliner is a timeless classic that adds instant glam to any look. Salon suite renters know that mastering this technique will keep clients flocking to their chairs for that cat-eye perfection.
Step 1: Map it out. Using a gel or liquid eyeliner, draw a line from the outer corner of the eye towards the end of the eyebrow. This creates the wing’s angle.
Step 2: Connect the dots. Draw a line from the inner corner of the eye to meet the winged line, creating the eyeliner shape.
Step 3: Fill it in. Fill in the outline with your chosen liner, ensuring a smooth, even application.
Step 4: Perfect the flick. Tidy up any imperfections and extend the wing for added drama.
Pro Tip: For beginners, start with pencil eyeliner to sketch out the wing before using a liquid or gel liner for precision.
Ombré Lips for That Extra Oomph
Why It’s Essential for Salon Suite Renters: Ombré lips can take any lip look from basic to extraordinary. Your clients will love the dimension and allure it adds to their pout.
Step 1: Lip Prep Exfoliate and moisturize the lips to create a smooth canvas.
Step 2: Outline Use a lip liner to outline the lips, slightly overdrawing if needed.
Step 3: Dark to light. Apply a darker shade of lipstick to the outer corners of the lips.
Step 4: Blend. Use a lip brush or your fingertip to blend the darker shade towards the center of the lips.
Step 5: Pop of light. Apply a lighter lipstick to the center of the lips and blend it into the darker shade.
Pro Tip: To make the ombré effect more striking, add a touch of metallic or gloss in the center.
