The golden ratio of mask beauty! “Eyes are one-fifth of the width of the face”
Now that wearing a mask has become the standard, what you should aim for is “mask beauty”! If you wear a mask, the lower half of your face, such as your mouth, will be hidden, making it impossible to show off your beautiful skin and attractive lips. However, it is possible to take advantage of that limitation and emphasize the “upper half of the face that is exposed from the mask” to make it look attractive.
Speaking of the part that comes out of the mask, of course, the eyebrows and eyes. Especially by devising eye makeup, there is no doubt that the degree of beauty will improve!
The golden ratio of mask beauty is “the width of the eyes is 1/5 the width of the face” or “the width of the face is the width of five eyes”.
In other words, when you reflect your face in a mirror, the length from the left edge of the face to the left eye, the width of the left eye, the distance between the eyes, the width of the right eye, and the right eye to the right edge of the face. It is said that the golden ratio is that five of the lengths are even.
Of course, there are probably few people whose facial parts are naturally well-balanced. That’s why makeup comes into play! Be conscious of the golden ratio and aim for a mask beauty.
What is the point of becoming a mask beauty?
The basics of mask beauty is “the golden ratio of mask beauty”. However, this is just the basics. Let’s check the points to become a mask beauty based on the basics.
Apply makeup that emphasizes the eyes
The most important point of a mask beauty is to maximize the attractiveness of the part that comes out of the mask, the eyes and eyebrows. Aim for makeup that emphasizes your eyes more than they did when you weren’t wearing a mask.
Masks are now commonplace, but wearing a mask tends to create an unhealthy image. Therefore, make up the eyebrows and eyes that are out of the mask. Based on the balance of the “golden ratio of mask beauty”, eyeliner is added to make the eyebrows longer and add the power of the eyes. Emphasize the width of your eyes.
be aware of the luster of the hair
Hair is just as important as the eyes and eyebrows when it comes to mask-beautiful makeup. Since half of the face is hidden by the mask, the importance of hair is also increased.
In particular, if you are conscious of the “glossy hair”, it will give you a healthier impression. In addition, the lower half of the face is hidden by the mask, and the number of facial parts is reduced, so the stray hair may be more noticeable than usual. You can create an impression that does not look tired by conditioning with hair oil and blowing properly.
add a complexion
Mask makeup hides the colored cheeks and mouth, making it difficult to achieve the complexion that can usually be produced with cheeks and lips. To become a mask beauty, add a little complexion to the eyebrows and eyes. Place a highlighter with a hint of pink or orange glitter between the outer corners of the eyebrows and the outer corners of the eyes, or lightly apply reddish eyeshadow to the lower eyelids to create lively eyes. .
wear a big mask
To be a masked beauty that maximizes the charm of your eyes and eyebrows, cover up the rest of your face. For that reason, it is a point to use a slightly larger mask. Another advantage of mask makeup is that you can aim for a “small face effect” with a large mask.
However, please be aware that there will be a gap between the mask and the face, and the original role of the mask will be impaired.
Masks with complex colors such as pink and orange are recommended.
The color of the mask tends to be white, black, and gray, but if you use a mask with a complex color such as pink or orange, you can create an effect like using cheeks. If the color is too dark, the mask will be overemphasized, so let’s brighten the impression of the face with a clean pale pink.
How to apply makeup to become a mask beauty and tips
In makeup aimed at mask beauty, the eyes are emphasized based on the “golden ratio of mask beauty”.
There are very few people whose original facial features are in the golden ratio. Because the mask makeup hides the lower half of the face, even if you have a wide “centrifugal face” or a narrow “centripetal face” between the eyes, you can achieve the “golden ratio of a mask beauty” just by tweaking the eyes and eyebrows. can be cleared.
Make-up point for a “centrifugal face” with wide eyes
Focus on the brows and the inner part of the eyes. Emphasize the inner corner of the eye with eyeshadow, start drawing eyeliner from the inner corner of the eye, and keep the outer corner clean and short. Also apply mascara to the inner corner of the eye. Please add a little bit of eyebrows and eyebrows.
Make-up point for “centripetal face” with narrow eyes
Focus on the brows and outside of the eyes. Eye shadow emphasizes the outer corner of the eye. Make the eyeliner a little longer. Apply mascara on the outer corner of the eye. Try drawing your eyebrows a little longer. If you have heavy eyebrows, it is also effective to use eyebrow mascara to create a flow and make it look lighter.
However, be careful not to overemphasize both centripetal and centripetal faces. As you know, the impression of eyes and eyebrows changes with a little makeup, so please find the best balance.
[Mask beauty eyebrow makeup] Draw the outer corner of the eyebrow and the outer corner of the eye long and parallel
The point of mask makeup is to emphasize the eyes. However, since the lower half of the face is hidden by the mask, if you are conscious of the vertical direction when emphasizing the eyes, there will be no room in the top and bottom, giving the impression of being cramped.
Mask Bijin emphasizes the eyes horizontally. Based on the “golden ratio of mask beauty”, draw a little longer, 1mm to 2mm, at the outer corners of the eyes and eyebrows. If you stretch it vertically, the part that comes out of the mask will look tight, so be aware of drawing parallel.
