Now that many of us are slowly returning to a sense of normalcy, are you ready to fix your face and get back on the 2020 horse? Here is how to create that Spring-Summer glow for the big reveal back to work.. Working from home? Why not look gorgeous for that zoom meeting?
Amsterdam based make up artist Minou Meijers recommends you use pops of color and gentle touch-ups to hide any lack of vitamin D. When in doubt "fake it" until you get a chance to "bake it" officially this summer.
I met Minou backstage at a fashion show in Amsterdam and was immediately in awe of her flawless tribal body paint work. She is a regular on set prepping faces for the camera, and avid lover of color and pattern. This week in the Netherlands things are slowly returning to normal. We thought it would be perfect to make a how to video for all of our natural beauties hatching out from 8 weeks of quarantine. Luckily the weather and flower harvest season have made most of us optimistic and eager to get back out on the terraces in a spring dress. Whether you will be sitting pretty in your garden in loungewear or back out in the world, make it count.
This step by step tutorial will show you how Minou creates a pretty, spring look.
