Heading to an event tonight? Or just planned a romantic night out with your spouse? You surely have decided your makeup goals for that particular occasion. Let us help you for a perfect party makeup regime.
Unlike regular everyday makeup, party makeup requires more effort. We all aim to look chic and glamorous whilst ensuring that the cake on our face lasts all through the night and does not melt away. There are no rules with makeup. You can opt to go minimalist with your choices or go the full mile and bring all the drama.
Regardless of whether you are planning to drench yourself in shimmer or keep it subtle with a more natural and subdued look, following are some party makeup techniques and tips that will ensure a flawless and long-lasting makeup.
Before you slather on any makeup, you need to make sure that your skin is well prepped for all that it will be plastered onto it. Skin prep requires cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Regardless of the fact whether your skin is dry, oily, or combination, moisturizing is crucial. Not only does it provide anti-ageing benefits but it ensures a smooth makeup application. Follow up with a toner and primer to ensure a long-lasting application.
Perhaps the most important part of any makeup routine is a smooth and flawless base that is not only long-wearing but looks like skin. For an event that will last for long hours, we suggest a good matte foundation with good coverage. On regular days, sheer coverage works best but on special occasions, we want to look as flawless as possible. Apply with a damp sponge or a brush whilst making sure to not go overboard. Follow up with some concealing because none of us are perfect. Color correction followed by concealer application ensures the best results. Highlighting and contouring your facial features will enhance your features for both party and candle lights. Set your face with a translucent powder to lock all the liquids and creams in place.
Stunning Eye Makeup
The eyes alone can make or break a look. For those who love to bring the drama, a good old smoky eye is a great option. Others who like to keep it more clean and crisp; simple winged eyeliner with nude eye colors can do wonders. Just make sure that before applying any eye shadow or liner, you prime your eyes. Not only will primer cancel out any discoloration but it will allow your eye shadow to turn out more intense and make it last all night long.
Here’s a makeup technique for the perfect mascara if you don’t want to do false lashes. Squish a clean mascara wand into translucent powder, and apply a coat of it on your lashes. Then apply your favorite brand of mascara and see the difference yourself.
Don’t forget to highlight the inner corner and under eyebrows to give a picture-perfect look to your eyes.
Beautiful Bold Brows
Pencil-thin brows are out and bold boyish brows are in. Make sure you fill them in with a good and lasting waterproof product like brow pomade and then lock them in place with some brow gel. Clean up with a little concealer and you have yourself beautiful brows.
Full, Luscious Lips
For a long lasting look, a wise choice would be to opt for a liquid lipstick and a lip liner. They are long-lasting and tough so you don’t have to worry about touchups. If you are someone who does not know a lot about makeup but still wants to look glamorous, the best way to do so is to throw on a bold lip. If you have chosen smoky eye makeup, then go for a lighter shade of lips to balance it out.
Throw on some blush, bronzer, and some glow on the high points of your face. Set everything with some setting spray and get ready to turn as soon as you enter any room.
