Blue eye makeup, glowing skin and skin care with Anne Sophie Costa

Interview with Anne Sophie Costa, Makeup Artist - London

"I start my daily routine with a very water based moisturizer VICHY, which helps to keep my skin very moisturized during all day, and to beat the dryness from the London cold. It also helps to prepare the skin as a barrier for applying my foundation. I use a very light foundation..."Asian make-up trends summer 2014

Pastel Blue or Electric Blue eyes (eye shadow, eyeliner, all over the lid, moon shape... as you like it!) and glowing skin are the two main makeup trends we talk about with Anne Sophie Costa, London based makeup artist.

Anne Sophie Costa was born in Portugal, Lisbon, and currently lives and works in London as free lance make up artist in the Fashion industry, since 2011. She graduated in Graphic design back in Portugal, and during the same year she completed her makeup course, in 2008. Since that year she never stopped. She had the privilege of being involved with fantastic teams, from excellent photographers to stylists and great magazines. She truly enjoys her passion, which is growing more and more every single day.

Which are the most important new makeup trends you see coming for the Spring Summer 2014 season? Which one is your personal favorite?

Pastel Blue or Electric Blue is definitely one of the biggest trends for the Spring Summer 2014 season: eye shadow or eyeliner, all over the lid, moon shape, you can use it in so many ways!

One of my favorite trends is definitely "glowing skin"! Nothing beats glowing skin to usher in the sunny season, You can get the look starting with a really good food for your skin (moisturizer), and you can finish the look with illuminators to achieve the luminous look, either in the face or areas of it which need to be highlighted.

Can you tell us what makeup are you wearing today, and - if possible - give us a brief explanation on how to 'copy' your makeup look? :-)

Sure, I start my daily routine with a very water based moisturizer VICHY, which helps to keep my skin very moisturized during all day, and to beat the dryness from the London cold. It also helps to prepare the skin as a barrier for applying my foundation. I use a very light foundation, like the new Giorgio Armani MAESTRO, all over my face. No concealer at all, as I am lucky to have a good skin.

I define my eyebrows with Dior eyebrow pencil, it makes them look very natural!

And I dress my eyes with a very fine black eyeliner from Dior, it keeps on all day! Then I apply the new mascara from MAC, it is super good, as does not flake, does not make your eyes land, and it is easy to remove!

And I just use a very light shade of contour on my cheekbones, just to define them a bit. I finish the look normally with lip balm.

Easy and quick. And fresh!

The must-have beauty product for the Spring Summer 2014 season, the product every girl and every woman should always bring in her purse is…

It is definitely the TOM FORD shade and illuminate!

Beauty and skin. How to obtain flawless beautiful skin with the right use of the right makeup products? What is your personal advice?

Well, my first advice is to eat well and drink a lot of water! Everything wrong in your body reflects in your skin and face. Also, use a very good moisturizer especially during the winter. During the summer you can use a lighter version, if you are not in the sun. That already creates a very beautiful moist white canvas for starting to apply a foundation, or a tinted moisturizer if your skin is very dry. Also, Laura Mercier has 2 versions of tinted moisturizer, and I love the illuminating one as it really helps to get an extra shimmering effect for a flawless look! And finish the look with TOM FORD shade and illuminate pallet, to achieve the contour on the cheekbones and illuminate either the face or areas of the face which need to be highlighted.

Thank you, and we hope we will be able to have you as our expert guest on TRENDYSTYLE.ASIA again in the future.
