However magnificence is all about experimentation, so after I was supplied the chance to get my make-up accomplished by one among Make Up For Ever‘s proficient professional artists, I requested them to present me a “marinated” makeover — and the outcomes shocked me.

When Eddie Duyos, the model’s head of professional training and artistry for North America requested me what sort of make-up look I wished to do I started to explain the look: “There’s this rising makeup trend on TikTok. . .
