Today’s woman is outgoing and career-oriented. We go to the office every day and need to break free from the mundane routine in the evening. We desire to stand out every time and on every occasion. But also understand that neither our go-to day look nor the same old taupe eye shadow and pink blush can cut through. Thus there is a need for something more – darker shades and new tricks that can take full advantage of the subtle evening lighting and bring out the best in you. So, hold your makeup brushes girls and get ready to own every evening party that you will ever step in. This will further elaborate upon – Are you looking for evening makeup wear tips?
- Glossy eyes
For the nights when you will not have any makeup on you and the party will be too good to miss. You will not have to share your friend’s makeup and create a make-do look. Those nights this glossy eye look will save you with the help of that small petroleum jelly or lip balm that’s snuck in your bag. All you have to do is smooth your balm on your bare eyelids or overshadow and you are ready to rock the night with pretty, reflective lids.
- Red lips
Red is every night’s best color. Let your lips stand out and take all the attention with just a smooth layer of matte or glossy red lipstick. A matte lipstick gives you a subtle look, whereas a smooth layer of gloss over your regular red lipstick will give you a multidimensional look. So, go forth and let those red lips work their magic.
- Cheeks that speak
Create an edgy look for your evenings by highlighting your cheekbones and making them Insta worthy. Make your look more current by shifting from powder blush to cream-based blush. Just hold your angular brush, suck-in those cheeks to highlight your cheekbone, and start smudging that blush by moving your brush in an upward direction toward your ears. You can also try the easy trick of putting a scotch tape to get a more defined and sharp edge. Blend it and you are ready. You can also try a deeper shade or a bright fuchsia for a more popped-up look.
- Cat-eyes don’t lie
Most of you must be a pro at creating those cat-eyes that speak louder than any word in the dictionary ever. All you need is your liner and scotch tape (if you aren’t an expert) and you are done. Simply draw a line along your lashes and wing it out towards the edge of your eyes. You can also stick a scotch tape in an upward, slant position from your eye towards your eyebrow and draw a cleaner wing.
- Long lashes
It’s time you get those long, fuller fake lashes. This one element can separate you from the crowd and make your look stand out. All you have to do is trim the lashes to fit your eyes, stick it on your lashes, give it a little mascara massage and you are ready to talk with those expressive eyes.
Glitter can do all the trick and draw all the attention to where it should be, on you. The trick is to use it in moderation. A little dab is all you need and then smudge-smudge! Those eyes are ready to shine. You can also define your look with a thin line of your favorite liner.
All the essentials
Now that you know all the looks you can create to glam-up the night. You must also have the essentials to create those magical looks.
What is makeup without its tools? The answer is nothing. So, make sure you have all the brushes and eyelash curlers to create a look that owns the night.
Most people skip the very first step of preparing the base. Primer is very important to create a soft bed for your makeup to lay on and helps hold a stronger base. A soft, creamy, or sheer primer is all you need that can effortlessly blend in the texture of your skin.
- Concealer palette
This can serve multiple purposes as a palette has many shades. You can use your suitable shade to conceal blemishes, discoloration, or any other problem. And, you can use the other shades to contour and create a sharp look.
Powder or cream, make sure you have your favorite blush to highlight your cheeks.
- Shadow and glitter
An eye shadow palette with all hues is a savior. It gives you the liberty to play with different shades and also add a hint of glitter.
Add a little kiss from the sun on your face with a highlighter. Its illuminating glow is sure to give others complexion.
Red lipstick is a must. This one shade can single-handedly highlight your look. But, don’t forget lip balm is important too, to create that soft and creamy base.
Makeup setting spray
It is a must. After you are done with makeup, just spray it from a distance and you are done to rock the night with care in this world. This spray helps you let yourself free as it prevents your makeup from smudging or melting away.
