Medhin speaks of the “wow” moment we mentioned earlier—the first look that comes after you’ve finished putting together a full ensemble. Think of occasions like weddings, black-tie events, and even birthdays. These are special days for many, and oftentimes you dedicate a little extra time to your hair, makeup, and clothing to match.
When looking to achieve a wow-inducing makeup look, Medhin recommends tying together the aesthetic and energy of each element—hair, makeup, and clothing.
You should ask yourself, she says, Is the hair speaking to the makeup? What about the clothes? This way, you’ll be able to see the big picture of your look from a bird’s-eye view.
This could mean coordinating colors, textures, aesthetic themes, and even balancing what elements are having a moment compared to which ones are complementary.
And when it all works together, that “wow” moment is waiting.
