Kryolan is often considered a professional and top industry line. Here’s a great interview with Dominic Cruz, a makeup artist for Kryolan, on upcoming trends, do’s and don’ts, and more!

Q&A with make-up artist Dominic Cruz

Make-up items we should always carry in the bag:
Moisturizer, neutral lip color, lip pencil, eyeliner, a base foundation, mascara and a lip emphasizer.

What is the biggest make-up faux pas?
The wrong foundation color that clashes with your skin tone, the wrong shadows applied in the wrong manner and wrong brow shapes.

What are the top international trends in make-up?
The trend seems to be going back to the 1970s with influences of the mod look, Afro and crazy shadows.There are different looks to go with the different seasons that range from a varied, bright, color palette and tangerines for the spring season to UV colours with lots of yellows and pinks for summer.The fall season has more sober monochromes that go back to the 1930s and 1940s and to top it all off, there are the OTT bright burgundy shades for winter that emerge as a change from a conservative look.

There’s more to read of the interview! Continue reading →
