How to do Simple Party Makeup at Home

Before applying makeup to your face, make sure you wash to remove dirt. Use a gentle cleanser and warm water, then pat yourself dry. Apply moisturiser to your face to restore natural oils and prevent the skin from drying out or turning flaky. Use only a quarter-size drop and blend it into your skin.

Use your finger to apply a few small dots of primer on your cheeks, nose, and forehead and blend it in. The primer removes any shininess and helps your makeup last longer without reapplication. After the primer dries, use foundation and blend it in using a brush, foam sponge, or your fingers. Next, use a concealer that matches your skin tone to hide dark circles or blemishes. Set the makeup with powder so it stays and prevents your face from becoming extra oily. Use bronzer to contour and add some colour to your face.

Accentuate Your Eyes

Dip a finger into an eyelid primer and apply a thin layer to the upper lead and below the crease. Primer helps eyeshadow last longer, let it sit for a minute before applying the rest of the makeup. Choose a colour combination that matches your event. Stick to the greys and browns for formal parties and a shimmer eyeshadow for an informal event. Use a pencil or liquid eyeliner on your eyelids to highlight your eyes. Next, apply eyeshadow under your eye from the outer corner to the middle. Use a finger or eyeshadow brush to smudge and blend the line. For the last touch to your eyes, choose a mascara that matches your hair colour. Wiggle the mascara brush through your eyelashes and apply one or two coats until you achieve the desired colour.

Do the final touches. Apply blush if pictures will be taken at the party. Blush helps highlight your cheekbones and prevents your face from appearing washed out or pale. Smile to find your cheeks’ apple and swipe the blush on using a brush and blend it until you get the right colour. Select a blush colour that matches your skin tone.

Your Lips

Moisturise your lips when you are about to wear lipstick for a long time. This helps prepare the lips for lipstick by removing dryness. Apply some exfoliating or sugar scrub to your lips and rinse it off before applying a lip balm layer. Let the balm sit for a couple of minutes, then blot it off. Use a lip liner or pencil that resembles your lips’ natural colour to line them. This stops lipstick from bleeding beyond the lips. Next, apply a bold lipstick colour starting from the centre of the top lip. Do the same for the lower lip to achieve an even coat. Blot your lips with a tissue to remove excess lipstick or colour. Finally, set the makeup using a setting spray and allow it to dry.

There you have it. A simple makeup for party tutorial you can follow at home. A party is a chance to be bold and show off, so you can focus on one facial feature. For example, if you are going bold or dramatic on the eyes, keep the rest of your makeup toned down by keeping it simple. Likewise, if you want to highlight your lips, play down on your eyes and cheeks. But going bold on both lips and eyes will work against you and may ruin your party and beauty aspirations.
