Machiajul si proportiile fetei tale.

Wed, 5 Jan 2011 | Published in Lectii de machiaj 24Share

Primul pas, si cel mai important int-un machiaj, este sa depistezi care sint particularitatile fetei tale: ce forma are fata, ce forma au ochii, buzele, nasul, sprincenele. In dependenta de specificul chipului tau poti determina ce fel de makeup ti se potriveste cel mai bine. Asa ca inarmeaza-te cu un pix(creion), o foaie A4 si sa incercam sa aflam ce ti se potriveste tie in mod special. Poate nu esti o mare amatoare de geometrie insa uite ca va fi nevoie sa iti aduci aminte de ceva lectii din scoala. Nu e cazul sa faci arta insa incearca sa reproduci imaginea de mai jos,desenind un oval si

trasind liniile indicate: Pe desen notam citeva dimensiuni si litere semnificatia carora o sa ti-o explic pe parcurs. Buun. Acum primul lucru care trebuie facut este sa determini tipul de fata pe care il ai si proportiile fetei tale. Fata conditionat-perfecta este impartita in trei parti egale: Superioara(BC), partea de mijloc( CE) si cea inferioara (EF). Aceasta diviziune este efectuata de catre patru linii imaginare: - Prima linie-marginea superioara a fruntii, unde se termina linia de crestere a parului, - A doua linie – realizata deasupra nasului prin punctul de incepere a sprincenelor, - A treilea – prin punctul de la baza nasului, - A patra – tangenta la virful barbiei. Linia de la nivelul pupilelor imparte intregul cap in parti egale (AD=DF). Latimea nasului in

zona narilor este egala cu distanta dintre colturile interioare ale ochilor (OR=KL), la rindul sau, aceasta distanta este egala cu lungimea ochiului (Distanta colt interior – exterior): KL=PK. Latimea nasului in zona narilor este egala si cu distanta dintre inceputul sprincenelor : OR=ST Sprincenele corecte ar trebui sa inceapa de la punctul de intersectie cu linia dreapta trasata prin aripa narii si coltul interior al ochiului(OS), si se termina la intersectia liniei drepte trasate prin aripa narii si coltul exterior al ochiului(OP) . Distanta de la coltul interior al ochiului pina la locul de unde incep sprincenele trebuie sa fie egala cu aproximativ 1/3 din lungimea nasului, adica KS=1/3OS. Etalon se considera fata cu linia fruntii, pometilor si maxilarelor conturate lin si care se inscrie intr-un oval, avind trasaturile simetrice. Insa nu dispera daca ai alta forma, exista foarte multe metode care permit sa apropii fata ta de ideal. De exemplu fruntea prea mare poate fi corectata cu ajutorul bretonului, ea scurtind-o vizual. Poate fi corectata si cu ajutorul modificarii sprincenelor. Deschiderea, iluminarea fruntii, va mari vizual acest domeniu. Zona nasului este scurtata sau prelungita vizual in dependenta de schimbarea formei sprincenelor, si anume smulgerea sprancenelor astfel incit acestea sa fie amplasate mai sus sau mai jos. Zona barbiei poate fi corectata cu ajutorul fondului de ten cu nuante mai inchisa sau mai deschisa decit tenul si cu ajutorul rujului, folosit pentru a mari sau micsora buze. In articolele urmatoare o sa te invat cum sa corectezi forma fetei ca sa o apropii cit mai mult de oval si cum sa maschezi micile probleme ale partilor chipului tau . Ca tema pentru acasa te-as ruga sa faci desenul de mai sus si sa incerci sa mai desenezi alaturi si fata ta. Inarmeaza-te cu o rigla si fa ceva masurari. O sa iti fie de mare folos in continuare, caci in dependenta de specificul, proportiile fetei tale vei selecta machiajul care ti se potriveste cel mai bine si care scoate in evidenta frumusetea ta.
