First we learned to highlight our faces during the days of Contouring. Then we learned the Strobing technique (which I wrote about earlier). We even learned how to do the Striping technique. And then Mac Makeup’s makeup trendsetter, Dominic Skinner, his sent models down the runway with their faces highlighted with frosted-metallic lipstick! Until that moment, I don’t think anyone used lipstick other than on their lips, or maybe just a dab to flush their cheeks.
Chroming is practically the same technique as Strobing, where you apply a highlighter to the high planes of your face to illuminate those areas. The difference is the type of product that is used to do the highlighting. Strobing uses a highlighter in either cream, liquid, or powder form. With chroming, highlighting is done with a frosted-metallic lipstick!
The swatch really does look good on the skin ! LOL It’s really not a terrible trend.I think it is a pretty look if you can get past the sticky texture and the feel of lipstick on your face. I wouldn’t do the chroming on a windy day if you have long hair, like I do, because you will end up with your hair stuck all over your face. I say ewe yuck to that! What’s good about chroming is you do not need to use the Mac Mariah Carey Lipstick! Other lipsticks will work .
Listen, any old frosted-metallic lipstick that is sitting all the way at the bottom of your drawer will work! Don’t dash off to the Mac Store just to by that lipstick! You don’t need to buy a new product! That’s a good thing! The best part about that is you’ll have room for something else! Now that’s a really good thing!
We love visiting with you!
