Nail artist Julia Ismailova is not the only one who actually implements the “wow” effect when it comes to the following transformations. The main feature of her “reboots” is to show the heroine “before” — with the makeup she does by herself daily and “after” — with the look created by her, the expert. The girls share their ideas and based on that, the artist corrects their makeup. This means that the results always incorporate input from the heroines and not just Julia’s personal vision.
“The first thing I noticed is the perfectly accurate arrows as if someone had drawn them using a stencil. They look so heavy and rough. I also saw her incredibly beautiful even skin that was covered with a thick layer of makeup foundation. Here is the result that we got.”
“Frankly speaking, there was actually nothing to find fault in: her skin tone was correct and the lipstick was the perfect color. The arrows made the eyes look a bit down, that’s why a soft shading of the upper and lower lids, as well as the elongated shape I used perfectly lifted the outer eye corner.”
“I always see whether the girls’ makeup habits are going to change after appearing in my rubric of transformations or whether they will stay the same. It is especially pleasant when serious internal metamorphoses occur after these inspiring meetings. That’s exactly what happened to Nastya.”
“In order to improve the look of the skin, I first do a mini-facial. It takes 15 minutes but provides stunning results. Second, I prefer to use colorful corrector for creating the effect of even and clean skin, instead of a thick layer of foundation. It helps to get a very thin layer of makeup and a more natural skin tone.”
“Perhaps, the makeup done by me doesn’t reflect this heroine’s inner self and you know that I don’t like to ’break’ people. But this time, I very much wanted to create a tender and young fairy from a vampire woman.”
“The eye pencil and the eyeliner in the ‘before’ photo only enhance the perception of a sad look. I have made the brows look a bit lighter and added warmth to the face with the help of cheek blush and copper eye shadows.”
