The Beauty Trends This Makeup Artist Can't Get Enough Of
The world of makeup is always changing. One day, skinny brows are in; the next, thick and full brows are the look du jour. It can be hard to keep up with the latest beauty trends, but luckily celebrity makeup artist Keita Moore is here to help.
Keita Moore is a New York-based celebrity makeup artist whose clients include the likes of Dascha Polanco, Fantasia, and Chantel Jeffries, to name a few, and has worked with brands like Anastasia Beverly Hills. His work has been featured in the pages of InStyle and Elle, but beyond all the accolades, we especially love that he is dedicated to working with diverse talent and making the beauty industry a more inclusive space.
Here is what Moore had to say about the biggest beauty trends of the moment:
No Makeup Makeup:
Creating this healthy look doesn’t always call for less coverage, but it’s about using more soft and nude tones on the eyes, lips, and cheek area. This will simply enhance your natural beauty.
Using the foundation of your choice, apply in problematic areas and buff outwards using a foundation brush to the areas where less coverage is needed. A great foundation to use is Dior Backstage foundation because it's build-able.
I like to use little to no setting powders. Natasha Denona “Biba” Palette is great for creating a nude eye look. For example, something soft in the crease and a pop of glow on the lid or something soft and coral with a subtle glow on the cheeks and a pop of gloss on the lips.
Pop of Color:
You can intensify and brighten any makeup look just by bringing some fun attention to the eyes by using color liner or a bold, colorful mascara. I like to keep the skin glowing and natural when creating this look.
Fenty Beauty Vivid liquid liners are super fun, colorful, and pigmented! You can use this as a liner or mascara by using a mascara wand.
Eyebrows are the structure of the face, and the trends have changed throughout the decades, but one trend that isn’t going anywhere is Street Brows. Brooke Shields was ahead of her time, because now we all want to have #BrowGoals, which is growing your natural brows and brushing upward and outward using a gel, pomade, or even soap!
I like to use a product called “Soap Brows” which comes in a small container; you wet it and brush through your brows using a mascara wand. It helps keep your brows in place.
If you don’t have full brows, you can cheat by using the Kat Von D brow pencil, which is so thin you can imitate tiny hair strokes.
This is a term for wet looking skin. Instead of using a highlighter on the face's high points, you would use something emollient. I like to use Danessa Myricks “Dew Wet Balm” because it’s easy to use. You just tap your fingers in the product and apply on your cheekbones, eyelid, or lips which gives a dampened gloss finish. This look is great for editorials or even the red carpet.
