Symmetry… A Stranger
The ageing process influences the structure and appearance of people in a completely different way. The morphology of a human face depends on numerous factors which change according to age and have an influence on facial symmetry. First of all, we need to set a target in order to work on proportions, creating facial symmetry, redesigning the general harmony and, finally, balancing the overall effect of the face, body and hair.
Do we want to achieve a younger-looking, romantic, bright and relaxed face? Or would we prefer to draw emphasis to the eyes, lips or cheekbones? Another important aspect of our image is healthy hair, styled to enhance the specific shape of our face and the personal colour of our skin. This is particularly hard to identify: various tests and specific measurements are required to decide the natural changes to make to your face in order to achieve the look you desire.
A vast assortment of make-up and products make it possible to achieve the best look for every occasion and also to minimise facial imperfections and defects, while enhancing our best features. With these precise interventions nothing could be simpler than making a round, triangular or elongated face more symmetrical. An example? A matte base, powder, blusher, an angular brush and eyeshadow can create definition for a face that is too round. While those who want to soften an angular face should use a matte base, blusher, gloss and soft fringe. A fringe is also ideal for adjusting an excessively long face, with smoky eye makeup to complete the effect.
This is known as corrective makeup and is able to re-establish facial symmetry and harmony. We start with the aim and then move on to establish the best colour palette for makeup, clothes and hair. And then we complete it all with the most important thing of all: no one will look closely enough to see whether you’ve done a perfect job. What matters is that you feel “comfortable” with the look you’ve chosen and with the overall effect. By establishing our strengths and weaknesses, we can achieve real beauty: the beauty that comes from inside and is just waiting to be revealed.
