Exotic beauty is a look that many women try to achieve, as it is a great alternative to usual day or night makeup. From accentuating the shape of your eyes to enhancing the color of your skin, there are many simple ways to add exotic elements to your makeup regime. OROGOLD offers a few simple tips to enjoy an exotic beauty look.
A Radiant Tan
Now that the consequences of lying out in the sun are widely known, there have been some great new tanning products out on the market. Before applying your makeup, give yourself a good base to start with by choosing a foundation that is a couple of shades darker than your skin color. If your skin is quite pale, apply a thin layer to the backs of your hands as well. For an all-over sun-kissed glow, there are some great moisturizing tanning lotions out there, and they can be used on your face as well as your body.
Graphic Middle Eastern Eyes
This is a bold and edgy look, and works well when the rest of your makeup is kept minimal. To begin with, apply an eye base from your lids to your brows, to smooth out any imperfections, and then apply a matte eye shadow. Next, use a white kohl pencil to line the bottom waterline, extending the outer corner wing outwards along the natural shape of your eye. Line your top and bottom lash lines with a black kohl liner, extending the outer wings so that there is a line above and below the white line you previously drew. Use a liquid liner to then sharpen and emphasize the black lines. Depending on how dramatic you want the look to be, mascara and fake lashes can also be used.
A Gorgeous Pout
A subtle lip color can perfectly complete any look, and depending on the products you choose, can give your face an exotic edge. A sun-kissed red lipstick looks great with most skin tones, and can be worn with a plumping lip gloss to add volume to your lips. A sparkling lip gloss worn on its own is also a great choice, especially for during the day.
Lace is sexy yet mysterious, and when used in the right way, can give you an alluring exotic look. Lace can be used as a template and held over your face while you apply makeup around it. You can also use the lace itself, cutting it in a way to allow a piece to surround one of your eyes and disappear into your hair. For something more subtle, use the patterns of lace as inspiration for the patterns you draw with your makeup.
Exotic looks are fun to experiment with, as they are different from the way in which we usually apply our makeup. You can either adapt parts of these looks to your own style, for a subtle exotic appeal, or you can put a few of them together for a more dramatic and glamorous finished look.
