Getting a natural look is about where you don't apply makeup, says Frida Gustavsson

Frida Gustavsson says a natural make-up look is all about where you don’t apply cosmetics.
The 20-year-old Swedish beauty is a spokesmodel for make-up giant Maybelline.
She claims the best way to achieve a natural glow is to know exactly where, and where not, to apply your favourite foundation.
“No make-up make-up is as much about where you don’t put your cosmetics as where you do. I’ve learnt to apply my foundation to the centre of my face for the most natural look. As soon as you take it to your temples, jaw line and the sides of your cheeks, it becomes too done,” she explained to Britain’s Grazia magazine.
The beauty expert has walked the runway for some of the biggest names in fashion, including Valentino, Chanel and Alexander McQueen.
Frida is used to getting her make-up done by professional artists and revealed that she’ll be working the orange lip trend this season, but with her own twist on the look.
“At the moment, I’m sticking to a vibrant mandarin shade rather that going full tilt towards orange. It’s both flattering and forgiving against a winter complexion,” she revealed.
As a model Frida takes a keen interest in the latest catwalk looks and insists replicating them at home doesn’t have to be a chore.
“I love spring’s elegant and elongated take on eyeliner, but it’s hard without a professional make-up artist on hand. One of the best tricks I’ve learned backstage is to take a beige kohl pencil and use to draw a line and shape your eyes.
“Then once you’ve got the structure, go over it with a black liner. Make-up artist James Kaliardos is the man behind this fool-proof tip and it works every time,” she advised.
