2. Preparing Your Canvas for Majestic Evening Makeup
Getting your canvas ready for a dramatic evening look is an art in itself so don’t be afraid to experiment and splurge on the products you need. First of all, you’ll want a strong makeup base that’ll last you through the night. Start with a good thick moisturizer to keep your skin nourished and hydrated and ideally look for one that has an added SPF protection. Beauty blurs, also known as color correctors, are also great at evening out and neutralizing any discoloration.
Once you’ve set your canvas, get some help with primers and foundations to ensure we have a smooth base to work with. Choose a matte foundation for staying power and to make sure it holds up throughout the night. Try using an oil-free foundation with lightweight formulas to prevent shine. Follow it up with setting powder and a spritz of setting spray to lock in your look and finish.
- Begin with a thick and nourishing moisturizer, preferably one with SPF protection
- Spotlight discolorations with color correctors or beauty blurs
- Prime and apply a matte liquid foundation
- Finish with setting powder and a setting spray
3. Mastering the Dramatic Eye Look
The dramatic eye look is an iconic and timeless look for all occasions. With the right tools and techniques, you can master this classic look with ease. Here are some tips to get you started:
- Create a Base Look – Start off with your usual base look of foundation, concealer, and a dusting of loose powder to ensure that your eye makeup stays in place all day.
- Use an Eye Pencil – Draw a line down your eyelid with an eye pencil for added definition. This will also help your eye makeup last longer.
- Curl Your Lashes – Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler before applying mascara to give your eyes a longer, more defined look.
Once you have completed the base look, you can start playing around with color and intensity. Apply a neutral shade in the crease and then layer darker and lighter shadows along the lid for added depth. Finish off the look with a few coats of mascara and some false eyelashes for a truly dramatic look.
