#SelfieReady Make-up by Michela Marra, Nina Montironi and Marta Depoli
Despite the whole makeup free propaganda very few of us are willing to post pictures of our faces au naturel (hence the no-makeup makeup); in our Instagram ruled era, the beauty industry is providing us with more and more tools and tricks to finally replace those mainstream filters and make ourselves look “naturally” flawless.
Here’s our choice selection of camera-proof products. Say cheese!
This long-lasting liquid lipstick is perfect to get smooth, velvet-like lips! It comes in eight bright different colors and thanks to its applicator tip it is also super easy to apply. For selfies in the daylight you can wear it with some gloss on top and work on your best pose get the sparkles out of it!
Dior came up with an all-inclusive kit to neat and fill your eyebrows: three applicators, two shades of powder and one waterproof wax to fix it all. It works for every kind of brows, from the geometrical looks to the wild Cara-like ones.
Simplicity is the key, ideal for last-time retouches; you can apply it with your fingertips and mix it with colored powder in case you feel in the mood for bold looks (go check Kenzo SS17 make-up!).
Oily skin, see you never. We all know the relevance of a good highlighting, but it is strictly spot-related. This two-step kit keeps your skin matte and shine-free by soaking up the excess oil with those tiny (mess-avoiding) papers and blurring the pores with translucent powder.
Since well begun is half done, this mattifying primer is essential to make your face make-up ready and ensure flawless application.
If the pout is your signature pose, you’ll love these lip plumping lipsticks. Available in nine shades, for a striking flirty look.
Selfie queens Kardashian clan taught us well: contouring is a skill you need to master. This double-ended stick is perfect for beginners, and it will help you create all those shades that look great on camera. Better yet, its creamy formula makes it as subtle as you want.
Liquid Highlighter, the cure to all evil. An extreme glow is the common denominator of all the greatest selfies (just ask Bella). Actual micro-pearls give your skin a beautiful radiance without the glitter effect. For a flawless effect apply it on the upper area of the cheekbones, on the Cupid’s bow, and down the bridge of the nose.
Last but not least, never underestimate the power of some long, long, long lashes. Its Swan Neck Wand is like a magic stick and provides exceptional length and volume, while the new color-boosting polymer guarantees darker, blacker lashes.
