Evening make up is all about dramatic makeup ideas which will turn you from a wall flower into a show stopper. Smokey eyes, fire engine red lips, shimmery cheeks all look great for an evening of fun and frolic.
Some daring makeup tips to get that stunning evening look are mentioned below.
Tips for Evening Makeup
A flawless looking skin will set the stage for the rest of the makeup. Cosmetics applied on mottled or pigmented skin will look ghastly. So, if you have less than perfect looking skin you need to fix it up first. To get perfect looking skin you should apply a smooth coat of foundation using an airbrush. Otherwise liquid or powder foundation in a shade closest to your natural skin tone should be blended into the skin.
A small wedge shaped sponge which has been lightly moistened should be used for applying liquid foundation. A large foundation brush is ideal for applying powder based foundation. Perfect blending is the secret to getting flawless looking skin. If you don’t blend the foundation into the skin properly to get an even coverage, your skin will end up looking patchy. To get a radiant glow you can even opt for foundation with a hint of glimmer.
To send out those sexy vibes you need to apply bold eye makeup. You can start by lining your eyes. Eyeliners in exotic shades like aquamarine blue, forest green or deep plum shades can be used to line the lower eyes. For a mystic, eastern look you can line your eyes with black kohl. There is something definitely sexy and mysterious about heavily outlined eyes. So, don’t shy away from using some bold colors to line your beautiful eyes.
Eye makeup is never complete without eye shadow. Use eye shadow in eye popping shades to color the lower portion of the eyelids. For the region just below the eye brows you can use a highlighter eye shadow in lighter shades. For a show stopping look, you use glitter based eye shadow. Finally apply a coat of lash volumizing mascara to get sky high eye lashes.
Red Carpet Lashes
Think Kim Kardashian and you will get an inkling of what red carpet lashes should look like. If you have sparse lashes don’t feel disheartened. You can use faux lashes to get those movie star looks. Applying faux lashes can be tricky affair. But once you get them right your eyes will look mesmerizing.
You can either opt for single lash strips or individual lash clusters. Applying individual lash clusters is much easier than applying single lash strips. However, applying individual lash clusters is a time consuming affair.
Show Stopper Lips
Stay away from delicate shades of lipstick. Instead play around with deep, rich shades like plums, magentas, burgundies and the ubiquitous reds. High shine lip glosses in dazzling pinks and reds can also be used to create a style statement.
Drama Queen Cheeks
To look really mod use cream based blush on the cheeks. The current trend is to apply blush in bright shades to get that totally over the top 80’s look. Bright shades like fuchsia are considered hip this season.
A Touch of Glitter
Just a touch of glitter can complete the glamorous evening look. Your eyes, lips or cheeks should sport that hint of glitter. Don’t make the mistake of applying a lot of glitter as otherwise you will end up looking like a Christmas tree.
