You might ask “Cocktail Makeup”?

What is that?

Its a perfect makeup look for your business dinners, weddings that starts in the morning time and any other occasion you want to look a bit more made up than the daytime loo but less than an evening look.

Lets see the steps:

  1. Clean snd refresh your face before applying the foundation. You can use simple wet wipes to clean your face and toner to refresh it.
  2. Apply your favourite foundation. The coverage for the cocktail makeup is from light to medium. Still not full. Keep it soft and don’t cake it up let it glow.
  3. When it comes to contours and highlights if you are not a contouring freak keep it light. You don’t need layers and layers on your face for a cocktail makeup.
  4. Set your foundation and the whole base with a thin layer of a loose powder. Don’t use compacts as your 3rd step. Leave the skin open and don’t powder it up with the compacts. They are the best for touch ups.
  5. Fill up your eyebrows with a 3 shade lighter eye shadow than your brow colour.
  6. Apply a base colour on your eyelid. The base colour is close to your skin colour.
  7. Take your blending brush and swipe a medium brown colour in your crease line.
  8. Take a black eyeshadow and dab a touch of it in your outer corners of the eyes.
  9. Take a peach eyeshadow and with your blending brush softly blend in some colour above that medium brown to soften the transition between these colours.
  10. Take your flat brush and apply a gold shine white eyeshadow under your eyebrows to highlight the eyes.
  11.  Take your angled brush wet it and with a black eyeshadow line your upper and bottom lash line.
  12. Take your smudge brush and with a dark brown eyeshadow smudge this black line to smoothen it.
  13. Apply 2 layers of mascara
  14. Apply peachy blusher on your cheekbones and soften it with light orange highlighter.
  15. Apply rosy-brown lipliner and fill up your lips with a same rose- brown lipstick add a touch of a clear gloss on the top of the lipstick and you are good to go!

The colour combination will change regarding your clothes of course.

In case you don’t know what you are wearing go with neutrals it will always work.

 

Try out this look and look fabulous.

The importance of the blusher

“Blusher? no thanks!”

We often hear this from our clients or friends…

The the question why not?

And the reasons:

–  I don’t know how to put it on

– Dont know which colour to take

-Dont want to look like a clown so I’m not using it and much more !!!

Now ladies the blusher is important as any other makeup product or step of application

Don’t leave it out because your makeup will look incomplete

Here are some practical tips for you about the blushers.

Where to apply it and how?

Right on the cheekbones!

Don’t go on the top of the cheekbones with blusher!

Under your cheekbones will be your contour so again no…keep it exactly on the cheekbones.

The right blush can add a pop of color to your cheeks, instantly making you look younger, healthier and prettier. However, many women are unsure about the right type of blush to use and how exactly they should apply it. Choose a suitable color for your skin tone. When choosing a blush colour, it’s important to pick one that matches your natural skin tone.

  • This means that the color you pick should be as close as possible to the color your cheeks turn when you’re naturally flushed. Picking a color that doesn’t match your skin tone can cause your blush to look unnatural and even garish.
  • A good tip for identifying your natural coloring is to make a tight fist with your hand for about ten seconds. The color that develops across your knuckles is the ideal color for your blush!
  • In general, pale skin tones will work best with light pink which mimics their natural flush. For a more dramatic look, peaches and mochas can work well.
  • Sallower skin tones will do best with orange or reddish-pink blushes which brighten the skin, adding a healthy glow.
  • Dark skin tones can get away with vivid oranges, pinks and reds which add a pop of life and color.

Decide on a type of blush. There are many different blush formulas on the market, including powder, cream, gel and liquid. The best option for you will depend on your skin type and personal preference.

  • Powder blush is good for oily to normal skin. It is also good for warmer temperatures, as it will not slide off the face.
  • Cream blush is good for drier skin as it is more hydrating. It also good for older skin, as it will not catch in fine lines and wrinkles like a powder.
  • Liquids and gels are great if you want to achieve a very exact and long-lasting application. Often these products can double up as a matching lip stain!

Purchase some applicator brushes/sponges. You don’t have to use a brush/sponge if you want you can use your fingers(but a brush would make it neater).Applying your blush will depend on the type of blush you’re using:

  • Powder blushes are best applied with an angled blush brush or with a wide-headed loose powder brush.
  • Cream blushes are best applied with your fingers or with a medium-sized flat-topped brush.
  • Liquids and gels are best applied with your fingers or with a synthetic make-up wedge.
