Check out 5 party makeup ideas to inspire your glam…
#1. A colorful eye
Add an unexpected color pop to your party look this season, and it will certainly be worth it. Whether you opt for a touch of blue, orange, or green shadow, it will brighten your eyes and evoke an air of glam. This look is totally worth trying, especially for those night outs with the girls you’ll be attending as the entire look is subtle, but the color adds an extra “pop.”
#2. Timeless beauty
A classic party makeup look is always going to be a stunner and if you’re the girl who likes to stay timeless, then this is your fix. This look is built on paying attention to your natural features and then playing them up. The key is to seek to accentuate your strong features by keeping the look more natural and refreshing. It’s perfect for all the formal parties you’ll be dancing at this holiday.
#3. Red-y for the season
Red is one of the major colors of the season, and a color that you can do no wrong in. Whether it’s an outfit, shoe, or lipstick, this color is undoubtedly one to explore through the festivities. Make a bold statement in red lipstick as you go glam for your formal parties. The great news is: red is one of those lipsticks that come in different shades that complement different skin tones. That is to say, you’ll definitely find one that’s a true match for you.
#4. It’s all about the shimmer
This is the season of shine, and it’s totally right that your makeup flaunts the mood. While metallic tones are the easiest way to go about this, up the game with glitters and/or embellishments. This is a yes for special occasions like a wedding where you’re itching to stand out.
#5. An edgy side
If you’re looking for a smart way to add a bit of edge to a toned-down look, then the winged liner is the way to g. The general consensus is to opt for the classic black wings, but you can take it a tad higher with a colorful stroke.
