Can’t wait to try this? A bit of professional skills and a flair for makeup can easily transform anyone into a goddess for the night. Here’s an exclusive DIY to get you started.
Show-Stopping Smokey Eyes
The bold and beautiful eye makeup is the star of this party makeover. Make sure you have a steady hand and high quality makeup products to bring out the best in this beauty look.
Start with Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion to prime the eyes.
Build a soft transition on the crease line with soft earthy browns and warm orange tones. Start with the lightest tone and slowly build intensity with darker tones. For the perfect results, use Makeup Geek eyeshadow pan shades like Beaches and Cream, Crème Brulee, and Frappe, Huda Beauty Bae, and MAC Folie.
Now, on the socket of the eye, add Makeup Forever Aqua Cream in black and blend outwards to the transition area.
Apply Urban Decay Blackout Eyeshadow over the black Aqua Cream and blend out towards the transition area as well. Make sure you do not blend over the transition area, so as to not lose the crease line colour tones.
Next, apply Makeup Geek Voltage eyeshadow on the inner corner of the eye, MAC’s Woodwinked shade on the middle of the socket, and Anastasia Beverly Hills Golden Copper towards the outer corner.
Over these, use a glitter glue to apply NYX Glitter Brilliants 08
Now, go over the crease line with the transition colours used before.
Line the lashes with YSL Baby Doll Eyeliner and curl them with a good helping of NARS Audacious Mascara for that dramatic flutter.
Along and underneath the waterline, apply Maybelline Eye Studio Blackest Black eyeliner. Use a smudger brush and apply an eyeshadow on top to blend the line underneath.
Pump it up with lashes, if needed – Eyellure Artificial lashes are used here to give that fuller look
Finally, for eyebrows on fleek, use Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyebrow Powder in a shade that matches your skin tone.
Pro Tip:The focus here is to apply less and build gradually. Time availability is important here, as this is not a look that can be rushed. Also keep Q-tips and wet wipes handy for quick corrections.
Flawless luminous Skin
With the spotlight trained on the eyes, you might as well stay away from harsh lines. A soft blended look is the perfect canvas to show off the bold eye makeup.
Prep and prime the skin with Bobbi Brown Hydrating Face Cream and YSL Blurring Primer to even out the finest of lines.
Use NARS Luminous Lightweight Foundation for a velvety finish, along with MAC Studio Fix Concealer for the under eyes and dark areas.
Highlight the nose, cheekbones, forehead and chin with MAC Pro Longwear Concealer.
Pass up on the contour and a bright blush to keep the eyes in focus. Apply a soft blush in circular sweeping motion for well blended cheeks.
Use a loose powder like NARS Translucent Crystal Light Reflecting Powder to fix the base makeup.
Pro Tip: Less is more – work with the natural shape of your face for a smooth finish without harsh lines. Make sure your beauty blender is nice and damp while applying the product; this will ensure an even blend.
Roundup your flawless party makeup with soft plump lips. Use Boldly Bare Lip Pencil by MAC and fill in using Too Faced Melted Matte Liquid Lipstick in Sell Out. Swipe on a bit of lip balm or light clear gloss for a fuller finish.
Be it the base, lips or the eyes, the key to ace this party goddess look is to blend and blend a bit more. Layering the shades on the eye socket could be tricky and may require some practice; afterall time is a major factor in nailing this look. But it is all worth it, as you would be left glowing in a glamorous makeover fit for a queen; a beauty makeover that would compliment any evening attire for grand celebrations like your birthday bash, a cocktail party or any special occasion.
