The 20 minutes Cocktail Makeup look

  Cocktail-Party-Makeup-Hacks   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.   Stay with us tomorrow as we will talk in details about the cocktail skin.

Dry Contouring

If you’re a contouring newbie, powder is the way to go. Powder is also easier to blend. If you’re hoping to achieve a matte look, powder contouring will help you define your features. You can most definitely be a contouring pro and go this route–it’s really more about ease and desired look. Powder on dry skin can enhance creases and make you look more chalky and less fab, so best to use this method if you have oily skin. These are simply guidelines. You can mix and match product textures if you have different needs or combination skin. The dry contouring gives you a soft and natural look. It works perfectly for daytime and high fashion looks. Tip of the day: use greyish brown eyeshadows for contours it will give you a natural look.   tips-for-gorgeous-skin-600x400   Stay with us tomorrow as we will give you tips how to contour and highlight like the Hollywood Celebrities do.

Setting your foundation

We’ve all been there. You spend all this time perfecting your skin with foundation and concealer, and it looks great – awesome! Now you don’t want that to move, so you set it with some powder. And bam! Just like that: cake face. Now what? Powder is great for setting your makeup and making sure it doesn’t slide around, but the slightest excess of it can take you from amazing to ‘ew’ in about 2 seconds flat. But don’t worry, there’s a way to fix that. All you need to do is apply your powder with a taco. Wait, what? Yes, you heard us: a taco–a powder puff taco, that is. The “taco” method is one that’s been taught in makeup academies for years and will ensure that makeup stays put while cake face stays in the past. Intrigued? Read on.
  1. Make sure any excess oil is gone.
Excess oil is the number one way for makeup to cake up on your face. To prevent that from happening, you need to make sure it’s gone before you set with powder. After you’ve applied your foundation and concealer, take an oil blotting sheet, or even a tissue, and gently blot any excess oil or product away.
  1. Pour loose, colorless powder onto puff.
 Grab a powder puff (it can be large or small) and with it laying flat, deposit a small amount of loose, colorless powder onto the center of the puff. It is imperative here that you are using a powder that is 100% translucent. Using a tinted powder can alter the color of your foundation or even change the way it looks throughout the course of the day.
  1. Fold puff into taco shape and rub together.
 Here’s where the “taco” part comes in. You want to fold up the edges of your powder puff, creating a “taco” shape, with the loose powder inside the pocket you’ve just formed. Now, take both sides of the “taco” and rub them together well in order to really get the powder into the puff.
  2. Fold “taco” in the other direction and repeat.
 Open the powder puff up and fold it in the other direction. So, if you folded it horizontally the first time, fold it vertically this time, or vice versa. Repeat the same process of massaging the sides together.
  3. Knock off the excess.
 Unfold the puff and gently knock off any excess by flicking the underside of the puff. This ensures that you won’t be applying too much powder onto your face.
  1. Press and roll puff into skin.
With your now powdered puff, take it and form it into a “taco” again, this time with the powdered side on the bottom. Then, gently press and roll it onto the skin. Don’t swipe! This will disturb the makeup underneath. By pressing and rolling, you are locking in the foundation and concealer and ensuring that the makeup is really melting into the skin.
  2. Finish off with a setting spray.
Finish the face off with a few spritzes of your favorite setting spray. Doing this will get rid of any residual powder that may be laying on top of the skin, make you look fresh, and will lock in the makeup even more. No cake face here!
Tip of the day: the less is always more ... keep this in  your mind every time you are applying your makeup. Stay with us tomorrow as we are starting a new week. New week and new topic all about the contouring and highlighting !
