Did someone say party? Cool! You’ll be wearing that fancy dress you’ve just bought, and you’ll finally sport that strappy heels you’ve been dying to wear on a night out. But you’re probably panicking already on what makeup to use for tonight’s festivities because, after all, who doesn’t want to look great, right? Well, evening makeup doesn’t have to be that hard to put together as long as you know a few tips and tricks to use. And just because we are talking about evening makeup, you don’t have to go overboard with it. So here are a few tips that might help you pull off that evening look that will make you look your absolute best.
Take time to think things over
When you’re planning for a night full of fun, you will need to do a lot of thinking. You need to start with what outfit to wear because from there, you can come up with an idea on what look you want to achieve to match your clothes. This is why, you shouldn’t just rush on choosing your clothing because you will want to make a good impression, right? A simple tip here would be to tone down your makeup if you are going to wear an outfit that is fully accessorized because too much can be overwhelming to the eyes.
Choose the right foundation
Another important tip to keep in mind when it comes to wearing makeup at night is to choose your foundation carefully. If your skin texture is oily, a pancake foundation can help keep the shine away. On the other hand, a tinted foundation is appropriate for those with dry skin as it gives them a healthy hue especially underneath the lights.
Invest on primer
Of course, before you apply your foundation, you should apply your primer first. This is important as it will help you apply your foundation easily and smoothly too. Plus, it will prevent your makeup from smudging or melting after a few hours of dancing.
Opt for cream based rouge
Add a dab of color on your cheeks for that rosy glow using cream based rouge as it can be smudged on easily. Blush on is also appropriate but don’t put on too much that it makes you look unnatural. You’re aiming for that rosy glow so try not to go overboard with your blush.
Choose to play your eyes or your mouth
A rule of thumb when it comes to wearing makeup for a night out is to choose which part of your face to play with. Is it your eyes? Or your mouth? Don’t play up both because you might look older than your years. If you are going to enhance your eyes, mascara and eyeliner will do but lighten up on your lips. If you want to make your lips stand out, choose a strong shade and then just line the upper lashes and give it a few strokes of mascara and that’s it. You’ll be getting some compliments soon enough.
Show some glow
Another trick to make you look your best in the evening is give your skin that natural glow. One way to do this is to use highlighter on areas that you want to bring out especially the areas that light hits naturally such as arch of your brow bones, your cheeks, as well as your Cupid’s bow.
With these tips and tricks in mind, you’ll find that it is easier for you to look your best no matter the time of day. Don’t forget that less is more when it comes to wearing makeup especially at night.
