The Perfect Party Makeup

Published by Fragrance Rich on 9th Feb 2022

Getting ready for a party? Pull out all your glittery palettes, your metallics, and put on your best party makeup look. A hint of colour and shimmer on your lips, cheeks, and eyes can make you feel glamorous and create a striking look.

Don’t know whether you should rock a cat eye-bold lip duo or go all out with a full-beat face? Don’t worry, we've got you.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to party makeup that will make you turn heads wherever you go.

Here’s how you can get the red-carpet look.

Step 1. Start With a Clean Slate

Exfoliate your skin with a miraculous face scrub from Lancome or Estee Lauder. Next, deeply clean your pores and sweep away all the impurities from your skin with a facial exfoliating toner. Wrap it up with a dollop of Moisturising Renewal Cream for glowing and luminous skin. Let the goodness sink in before you whip out a brush and beauty blender.

Step 2. Glam Up Those Lids

Have shimmer and glitter on the charts? Start with eye makeup before perfecting your base makeup. After all, in the words of Dolce & Gabbana Beauty makeup artist Christian McCulloch, “You don’t want to get your undereye circles perfectly concealed and then drop eyeshadow and liner all over it.”

Here’s a step-by-step guide to nail the perfect party eye makeup:

  1. Start by filling in your brows with a Brow Pen. Awesome arches are a sure-fire way to achieve those #browgoals.
  2. Prime and set your eyelids with a Long-Wear Eye Base to improve your skin texture and to help eye makeup go on smoother.
  3. Next, aim for a smoky eye look—a Charlotte Tilbury approved party look. Her Instant Eye Palette in Smoky Eyes Are Forever can give you those hypnotic smoky eyes in mere seconds. Just apply the plum shade across your lid, pack a deep brown shade over the entire lid, and smudge it along the lash line to create a smoked-out effect.
  4. Create the iconic winged liner look with the eyeliner. Give it an extended flick for a hint of drama.
  5. Wrap up the eye look with False Lash Effect Mascara to give your lashes a clump-free, voluminous, fluttery effect.

Step 3. Conceal, Conceal, Conceal

Have dark circles? Cover them with a Magic Touch Concealer for ultra-high coverage and zero caking. The creamy formula will also brighten your skin and even out pores.

Step 4. Pack Foundation For A Smooth Canvas

Apply a lightweight, medium coverage foundation, like Dior’s Backstage Face & Body Foundation to create a second-skin finish. Want more coverage? Try Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup for a classic satin finish—one that is not too matte or too dewy. Remember to pick a shade that closely resembles your skin tone for a flawless finish.

Step 5. Carve Your Face

Once your foundation is set to perfection, pick up your Contour kit to highlight your cheekbones and add definition to your face.

Step 6. Add Some Colour and Glow

Now, add some much-needed colour and glow to your face with Highlighter. Pat it onto the apples of your cheeks and make upward strokes along the length of your cheekbones to make them pop. Just-pinched cheeks? We’ll have two of them, thank you.

Step 7. Bake That Face

Set the base makeup with Setting Powder to soften the complexion and create a “chiselled” look. It sweeps away any extra product and gives you that photo-ready look. A definite win-win, wouldn’t you agree?

Step 8. Add Colour To Your Lips

Want to enjoy your evening without making frequent trips to the bathroom for a quick lipstick refresh? Line your lips with a Super Precise Lip Liner to make your lips look bigger and fuller.

Now, get your lipstick for a perfectly painted pout. Tom Ford’s Lip Color Shine Sheer Lipstick 3G in Sweet Spot or Givenchy’s Le Rouge Luminous Matte Lipstick in Corail Signature can give you just the right amount of pizazz to make a statement and flatter your skin tone and undertone.

Once your party makeup is done to the nines, set everything in place with Makeup Setting Spray and you’re done!

Now all there's left to do is get outside and have a wild night!
