If you're attending a black-tie event or any other formal occasion, it's essential to look your best. This means more than just wearing a lovely dress or suit. You also need a makeup artist to help you create that formal look, polished and put-together. Lucky for you, we've got helpful tips for applying professional makeup for events!
The rule of thumb is to pre-face your skincare routine with an oil or water-based moisturizer. That way, when it's time to put on the heavier duty stuff like a retinol cream and serum, they'll glide onto skin better because there aren't any barriers in place preventing them from absorbing into our pores more quickly!
A primer will help your makeup look smoother and last longer. Different primer formulas are designed to address the needs of various skin types. For example, if you have oily or greasy skin, look for matte products to reduce shine when applied under your makeup. At the same time, dryer complexions can find moisturizing primers that will help provide dewy moisture on contact with air which is perfect!
Those who want a brighter-looking complexion should consider picking up one containing vitamin c because it has proven to create the perfect glow over time.
A liquid foundation is best for fuller coverage, while a powder foundation is suitable for light range or if you want a matte finish. If neither type sounds good, then try mixing them! A liquid foundation is the best option if you want full coverage, as it provides a more profound and more uniform color application. Powders can be used to achieve lighter shades with even tone throughout your face; however, they may not have quite so much staying power.
Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks for a natural-looking flush. Blush should be applied in small amounts and not overused, as it will make you look like an oversized fruitcake!
Try different shades and textures, like matte, shimmery, and metallic finishes. Use a light-colored eyeshadow all over your lid to brighten up your eyes.
Darker colors should be used in the crease of your eye and at the lash line for added definition.
Line your eyes with black or brown eyeliner, depending on your eye color. Use a thin line on the top lid and a thicker line on the bottom lid for more drama.
Be sure to use waterproof makeup if you're sweating or crying.
It's time to match your outfit and skin tone with a lip color that will last all day long.
You want something bold but not too heavy or dramatic, so it looks like you're wearing tons of makeup when in fact, only two swipes are necessary!
Choose a lipstick that is long-lasting and doesn't smudge.We hope these tips help you look your best at your next formal event!
