Soft glam is done in a way that it looks and feels lighter, airier, and softer.
All the glam, just without the glitz – that’s basically what soft glam is. There’s a time and place for cut-crease and bold lipsticks, but when it’s not, soft glam will come to your rescue. If you love a full face of makeup but are looking for a change of pace, let us put you on the correct path – the path of soft glam. The subtler stepsister of the full-glam look, soft glam is done in a way that it looks and feels lighter, airier, and softer. Glowing skin, dewy base, and natural, neutral lips, that is what characterises soft glam. Diffused eyeshadow, and brushed-through brows also make an appearance. The overall look is effortless, diffused – almost ethereal. The key to achieving the perfect soft glam look is blending, swirling and buffing and doing it with the right tools – no shortcuts or beauty hacks! Use soft, shimmery eyeshadows on the eyelids and below the eyes, pair it with a rosy blush and an understated lip and you’re all set. Give a dewy base underneath to achieve an even softer look.
Using a white eyelines is a great way to elevate the look and helps to brighten up your eye.
Every makeup lover has several eyeliner shades in their makeup kit. And the one eyeliner shade no one misses is white. Many have black liner as their go-to while others have white as their favourite. Use it to subtly line your lower lash line or play around with it and draw complex shapes, it all looks great. It is a great way to elevate the look and helps to brighten up your eye and make you look more awake. Opening up the eyes with a white liner is a technique that has enjoyed immense popularity amongst makeup lovers and it’s been making a liberal appearance amongst makeup enthusiasts. So far, it has taken the form of double liners, been used in the inner rim of the eye, used to brighten up the inner corner of the eye, as well as for drawing complex, graphic shapes on the eyelids. You too can make use of white eyeliner to achieve this effect.
The look is very youthful because it is less heavy and less pulled-back.
There is a time and place for full-blown black eyeliner – for some, it is always – but for those of us that it isn’t, here’s your solution. Baby wings were the biggest trend for 2022 and the trend has carried itself over to 2023. Blacks, browns and bold shades can be used here and provide a subtle yet interesting twist to the traditional cat eye. You’ll definitely need an extra-thin liquid eyeliner to achieve this look. The look is very youthful because it is less heavy and less pulled-back than a heavy cat-eye look. Instead of heavy tails, the eyeliner is narrower, begins in the middle of the eye and is drawn outwards in order to create a natural lift. The flick is subtle and the tail is slimmer. Use a powder in the same colour as your liner to provide the tip with a little shadow.
GOLDEN SHIMMER ON THE EYELIDS
The little pop of gold in the middle of the eyelids makes the look pop out.
The cold weather might make you reach for cooler tones, and we get it. It is almost instinctual for most to reach for cool tones when the weather cools, but hear us out here. Golden shadow is a pretty reminder of the coming sunny days and looks beautiful as well. The little pop of gold in the middle of the eyelids makes the look pop out and looks great in the day as the sun shines on you, making the golden shimmer stand out. And let’s not forget, there is nothing more festive than a metallic hue and nothing says party like gold. Your festive look will be incomplete without a touch of gold and this is the touch that can complete your look. Pair it with peachy blush, champagne highlighter, and a pink nude lip to complete it.
