It instantly illuminates the complexion, especially diaphanous skin, thanks to its imperceptible melting texture,” says Angloma make-up artist Sisley.
Don’t: Redheads with light eyebrows? Choose a brown mascara over black mascara. If you have red eyebrows, choose warm shades rather than ashen ones. Be careful to choose the right foundation shade. If your skin is diaphanous, be careful not to apply a foundation that is too dark. Avoid overloading yourself with make-up. with mouth or eyes. Hair colour already brings a glamorous result
