Careful contouring has been replaced by trends since the 1990s. Thirty years ago, a natural satin or matte skin finish was in demand, rather than overly highlighted cheekbones or other accents on a clear contour. Makeup artists emphasize that makeup in the style of the 90s will be a stylish and versatile solution, and the perfect tone can be achieved with a minimum of cosmetics.

The "demi-method" is aimed at improving the complexion without thick coverage and multi-layer makeup application. Experts told us how to achieve the perfect tone and hide skin imperfections.

Famous makeup artist Kara Brook emphasized that this technique requires a certain amount of skill, but a few workouts will be enough to master the secrets of applying "invisible" makeup.

The point of the "demi method" is not to hide your skin under the tones of foundation, concealer, and other contouring products, but to balance facial features, preserve natural radiance and color, and eliminate small imperfections.

The first step is to master the famous color wheel, which is a tool for understanding color harmonies. Color theory allows you to understand how different shades relate to each other and how they are perceived by the human eye.

It's all about achieving a balance not only between textures or products, but, above all, between colors.

The key is to use the opposite color to the one you want to cover. For example, green can correct red or pink imperfections, just as pink or orange shades can correct bluish or purple dark circles. Just apply this theory to your entire face. Do it subtly, in small strokes, using small brushes.

When it comes to products, Cara Brook notes that there are really no rules. They can range from bronzer to concealer and contouring products, but they should always be applied in moderation. And you should start with a primer and a light tinted moisturizer that nourishes the skin, evens out the complexion, and helps makeup to stay on better.

Similarly, you can choose eyeshadow to emphasize your eyes. First, determine what color your eyes are and find the color closest to it on the circle. Then apply the opposite shade.
