1. First things first!
Having a clean skin is of utmost importance and if working all day has left your skin oily then use those blotting papers to dry up your skin and pull out the excessive oils. This shall keep a check on the already applied makeup and won’t muster it at all. Make sure you get a clean face without redness or dull look on the skin.
2. Contour and highlight
For a little polished look to highlight the features in the night, get smart with your makeup. Use that contour brush the Two-in-one contour-highlighting kit to brighten up your features a bit. Make your jaw line more evident, the cheeks a little sharpened and eyes popping with beauty. Highlight the areas you want to let shine like the brow bones, the top of the nose and a tint around the cheek for that glam look in the night lights.
3. Blush with balm
A little pink always favours your smile and adds to your beauty. Your lip balm is a savior to your looks everyday. Use a minimal amount around the eye lids to give them a rosy look. Rub a bit of balm between your fingers and blend it near the cheeks for the ultimate blush and of course you can apply it on your forehead and chin to give a little rosy finish to the skin. You don’t want to look pale right?
4. Apply darker lipstick
While wearing a light or nude lipstick is the office etiquette, an evening cannot go without a dark lip shade which brightens your face and lets your smile shine. Always carry a dark shade of lipstick which flaunts your smile and works with every face makeup. This one can be a maroon or red which flaunts your skin. Change your lip shade to darker for that party look!
5. Mark that line or smudge it
Eyeliners and Mascara add a dramatic touch to your look. Mark that liner the way your like and dash up your eye lashes with a lot of mascara to brighten up your eyes and give it a more defined and dramatic feel. You can also smudge your liner and create a smudge look for a party or concert. Just make the best use of the duo to create the look you want! Dark eyes always make your evening brighter!
