Everyone would like to look like Botticelli’s Venus. But what if nature did not give you that fair skin, great eyes and blonde hair? We have asked Clio Makeup, the super-famous make-up blogger (844.000 followers on YouTube), what are the rules we have to follow to transform ourselves into Botticelli beauties.
‘The first this the getting a fair skin. Forget all the contouring and heavy foundations. Make your weekly scrub and hydrate your skin, to make it glowing. Then use the same, fresh, rose, pink and peach colours for your lips and blush. Leave your hair free, with only some curls’, Clio says.
‘The skin is the most important aspect in a Botticelli beauty. The latest trend during the NY fashion week tends to avoid mascara, so giving the eyes a more natural look. Avoid, also, a lipstick too strong, too dark or too red’.
‘I’ve been to the last catwalks in New York’, Clio continues, ‘and I’ve noticed that Francesco Scognamiglio, Naeem Khan and the Indian-American designer Bibhu Mohapatra have all chosen an ethereal woman, with beautiful flowery dresses and very little make-up. Their women are classical, a little retro. Exactly like the women of Botticelli’.
