You’re going out with your girls and you want to bring your A game to that club you’ve been waiting to hit. It’s the night you’ve saved your sexiest outfit for- Those jeans that hug you in all the right places and a glamorous crop top that shows off your waist. You want all those good lookers to get a good long look at you tonight!
Well you can’t go wearing the hottest outfit without the hottest make-up can you? No. I wouldn’t (haha!). I’m a sucker for beautiful eyes, so that is always the most expressive part of the whole look if I have anything to do with it. You can decide to play it up or down for the rest but I usually play it down to get the eyes a standing ovation.
After doing your routine base make-up, use a nude-bronze highlighter instead of a blush on. For that sensuous glow, I love using body shimmer mist as well. Just spray a couple of times and there you go! Make sure your eyebrows are shaped and smooth before you begin with your eyes. This is the most exciting part for me- A soft smokey eye with kohl-lined eyes is bang on for a night on the town. Use any dark hues as smokey eyes work best with darker shades like black, charcoal, navy blue and browns.
End with a shimmery gloss or a glossy nude lip color. Depending on the length of your hair, let it down. If you like it unruly and the just-out-of-bed look, curl it, separate the curls and use some hair spray to keep it that way for 3-4 hours. If you’re a straight hair kinda gal, pick up the straightening iron and knock yourself out. Go bold with jewellery and accessories- they’ll balance all the nudes in your make-up out. Toss the gloss and kohl in your bag, you might need it for quick touch ups (it’s going to be a long night of good music and good food- your gloss will come off either way)!
THE 21st CENTURY BRIDE
The “Wedding Season” is upon us, and when I think about weddings I think about the bride- her attire, her accessories and most importantly, her hair and makeup!
