"Adversus meets Yola Hung, Make-up Artist in Hong Kong, to talk about the latest trends in make-up for Asian women."
In order to properly spot and identify the latest trends in make-up it is always important to talk to the right people. People who have been working in the fashion world for many years, like Yola Hung - professional make-up artist in Hong Kong - often have a unique perspective on the latest trends, and are able to identify well in advance the new trends in make-up. We met Yola in Hong Kong, where she lives, and we talked about the latest trends in make-up for Asian women, the new trends for Spring Summer 2011. Read on for the full interview.
Make-up trends and colors for the Spring Summer
2011 season. What are the key trends you see emerging in make-up for
the next season?
The difference between the previous Retro make-up and the one we see emerging now, resides mainly in the fact that the make-up artist will use bright and strong color contrast to create a full visual impact of the retro make-up, use bright colors instead of somber ones.
Despite the fact that nude make-up has been the most important trend of the past two years, many people still cannot understand the main point of nude make-up. They don't know how to create the feeling of nude make-up.
The most important thing in nude make-up is the use of 'naked transparent' color on the skin, nude lips, even "nude eyebrows". Spring Summer is a dynamic season, that's why nude make-up is important, to make your healthy skin stand out.
What about the eyes?
Some advice on the 'new smokey eyes'?
Combine nude lips with flimsy make-up base, basic but not simple. You will get a 'retro' look if you will use red lipstick. No wonder smokey make-up seems to continue to be an important trend, as it is for the black color.
