Quick Makeup Tips To ‘Shine’ At A Party!
Make-up is an art and you must know how to apply it properly. You can be subtle, or choose to go bold, with the main attraction and focus on your eyes. Achieve this with the smoky-eyed look combined with glitter, as there’s nothing like eye makeup or a hairstyle with glitter, for the perfect party look! There are many kinds of glitter, right from loose glitter powder to eyeshadows, pencils, and gels. However, the loose glitter power is the best for the effect you want to create. Simply, apply it on a cream shade and blend it up to the crease.
For Your Face
Hold a tissue with one hand just under your eyes, so that the glitter does not fall on to your face. Once you’ve applied the glitter, apply the eyeliner just above your upper lashes from the inner to the outer corner and extend it a little. A little glitter should be applied just under your lower lashes, followed by eyeliner. Now, apply mascara to your upper and lower lashes. Lastly, apply a little glitter on your brow bone.
For Your Hair
can also be used on your hair, to add sparkle to your hairstyle. For hair glitter, you need a soft, glossy wax or balm. Apply it sparingly on your hair to help the glitter stick on. After applying the wax, just graze your fingers lightly over the glitter and then pat it on your hair. There should be more to your roots, as this would make the glitter move and spread through your hair. Also, many swear by glitter on the roots of the hair, as it helps to hide outgrown roots.
Shimmery shadows are also useful. You can get a palette of eye shadow colours with shimmer, to experiment. Although eyeshadow can be applied using your fingertip, you will need sponge applicators and brushes. Makeup artists feel that a primer is most useful – this should be applied sparingly on your eyelids, to create a smooth base for your eyeshadow. First, apply base eyeshadow on your lids, up to your brow bone. For this, use light brown or grey. Apply a darker shade of the colour on the crease and blend it. Shimmery shadow may then be used on your brow bone and inner corner of your eyes. Now, apply a shimmer in a cream shade on your eyelids. You are now ready to shine!
