FEMININE POWER – fashion may be transient, but style stays forever. Style is not just the skilful choice of an outfit, but a reflection of our character. Truly elegant women, who leave a memorable impression, are often those who look well-groomed and act in a highly self-confident manner. Her style is unique because it is glamorous, yet it looks wonderfully effortless. To copy her look would be pointless - after all, it is her personality that makes it shine.
The international premium brand APART Fashion caters to self-confident, trend conscious women. Since it was founded in 1975, the popular label has enjoyed great success in the world of fashion. The Spring / Summer 2019 collection celebrates female silhouettes with stunning dresses and lightweight fabrics as well as playful blouses and pants. A style that is cool and quirky, yet always carries a touch of glamour and elegance. Fabrics, colours and prints offer endless possibilities to create outfits for different moods. APART Fashion shows looks for women who enjoy living fashion.
Confident elegance is captured with a perfect complexion, naturally accentuated eyes and irresistible, radiant „strawberry lips“. The result is an elegant, every-day make-up look that gives depths to the „Feminine Power“ theme.
To create a radiant make-up look for this year‘s competition, first a clear and even complexion is prepared. The foundation is natural, fresh and perfectly matches the skin tone. Small blemishes, redness or shadows are evened out with a concealer. A dash of powder leaves the foundation looking softer, the cheekbones are given a light, glowing finish with a highlighter.
The natural shape of the eyebrows is traced and filled in. The eye make-up is blended in a soft gradient from a slightly shimmering cream beige over apricot rosé to a matte brown tone.
In order for the eye make-up to express elegant understatement, glitter is deliberately avoided. A highlight is set in the inner corner of both eyes.
To achieve an intense expression, the darkest point should be accentuated in the outer corner of the eye. The upper lash line is finely contoured with a dark eye shadow, creating a very soft, subtle eyeliner look. The lower lash line is filled in the same matching eye shadow tone, blending softly from the outside to the middle. Mascara is applied generously to the upper and lower lashes.
The face is subtly contoured and naturally emphasized in an apricot rosé tone. The lips are dramatically painted in a creamy strawberry red and determine this confident, strong look.
