Makeup Rules - Live and Let Live

Dita von teese

After years of being a makeup artist. The rule stands true. There are no rules to makeup, only rules of thumb. Nothing called "too anything". I disagree with telling anyone how to wear their foundation/blush/powder/eyeliner/eyeshadow. Makeup is subjective.

Everyone has their own makeup style. Many light people tend to go light/lighter or mix it with a luminzer to make themselves brighter/radiant/porcelain like. A great example of this would be dita von teese, who even stays out the sun to maintain her light skin tone and wears light foundation. Others prefer to be dark/darker and darken in the sun or use bronzer all over their skin tone.

Different people have different preferences. If I spelled "Horse" "Howrse" than there is no "ifs" "and" or "buts" because grammar isn't subjective. What is wrong is wrong!However. Makeup is subjective. I hate nude lips. Does that mean its right to say "don't wear nude lips" ? No.

I might not like it but someone else might. There is no rule to makeup. Thats the beauty of being a makeup artist. There are soo many different styles.

I hate bronzer. But maybe there is someone who loves that deep bronzed look. I cant go to them and say "don't go soo deep in the bronzer" and say its "constructive". There are soo many different styles. Who is anyone to tell someone they're wearing a too light or too dark foundation, because there is no such thing.

Nicole and Sam from pixiwoo(huge makeup artists in Britain) sometimes wear paler or darker foundation and it looks gorgeous! as long as people blend it to the neck its fine....some people prefer to look bright and radiant.
