Night makeup calls for a bit of drama. It’s no time to go all natural but time for a bit of shimmer, eyes that pop and lips that speak. You want to play up those gorgeous features of yours so they don’t disappear in strobe light. To achieve that million bucks look worth making heads turn your way, here are few tips to guide you through.

  1. Start with a Clean Palette: To achieve a flawless evening look, make sure your face is properly cleansed and prep your face using a face primer. This is important in order to create a soft surface and perfect canvas for a glam look.


  1. The Right Colours: For a glam look, go for colours that suit your skin while trying to enhance your natural beauty. Avoid strong unnatural colours that can emphasize harsh lines, make you look older and don’t tend to bring out your best.


  1. Play up your Eyes or Lips, Never both: Lower light levels in the evening are the perfect time to wear your makeup a little darker, smokier and more dramatic. If you choose to play up your eyes, you can achieve that using eyeliner, mascara and dark shadows (chocolate browns, deep greys, burgundies and black) but consider a subtler treatment for your lips.

Glam Lips: To accentuate your lips, choose a lip colour suited to your face. Prime your lips and highlight the edge of your lips with a pencil that’s a shade darker than your lipstick. Use a precision lip brush to apply the lipstick starting at the middle of your lips and working out towards the outer corner. For a lacquered effect, apply a touch of gloss to the centre of your lips for an ultra-shiny, irresistible pout.

  1. Quick highlight and contour: Choose a face contour kit that suits your complexion. Highlight your forehead, under eye area and chin. Contour below your cheek bones and apply a hint of blushes higher up on the contour for a chiselled look.


  1. Don’t forget to blend, blend, and BLEND!! The secret of keeping your makeup natural looking even when dark and dramatic is to conceal obvious lines where colours meet.



  1. Fantasies Permitted: Night outs and special occasions are the perfect opportunity to live out your makeup fantasies. False lashes and glitters can all be part of your glam look.

These easy how-to prove that trying new looks need not be daunting. Also remember, practice makes perfect. So TRY! TRY!! TRY!!!
