How to do evening makeup at home?
Evening makeup is a bright, memorable look, suitable for going out to public events, celebrations, holidays or theme parties. The feature of evening makeup is always a fashion statement, but at the same time your position should not cause a feeling of absurdity. It is very easy to cross the line between outrageous and bad taste, and the world’s leading makeup artists warn against this.
Basic rules for evening makeup
The main difference between this make-up and casual-makeup for a daytime look is a more intensive study of facial features, the use of combined techniques and bright colors. Day makeup is more restrained than evening makeup, and this is where the fundamental differences end.
For evening make-up, you can use glitter, and beauty products with a shimmer, and metallic shadows, and colored mascara.
There are actually no restrictions, but moderation should still be observed, otherwise your image will turn from spectacular into outrageous. However, for some occasions, such an evening make-up is also appropriate.
If we talk about bright colors, evening makeup is an occasion to show imagination and creativity. Pearlescent and sparkling shades, non-standard textures are allowed here (for example, large crystal glitter on the lips, the effect of “mica coating” on the cheekbones or eyelids).
Acceptable color palette for an evening look:
- All shades of red – scarlet, purple, burgundy, etc .;
- Saturated blue (indigo);
- Black (with a shimmer effect).
Make-up for evening outings should enhance the integrity of the image, and not go against it. When choosing an outfit, accessories and shoes for the celebration, also think about what kind of makeup you want to do for this event. All components of the image should be in harmony with each other, without shouting over each other. This is taken into account when choosing both style and color scheme. It is clear that glam rock suit makeup can be provocative and combine “cat” arrows with scarlet lipstick. However, it is unlikely that the same solution is suitable for a boho-chic look.
Main regulations evening make-up:
- Always consider the room and time of day for which the gala evening is scheduled;
- If the event has a special character, but takes place during the day in natural light, “mute” the brightness of the makeup by 2-3 tones;
- Artificial lighting can add unexpected visual impact to textures and colors. Before going out, for a day, practice and do a trial make-up, and then “test” it in suitable lighting. You can even take a couple of photos and look at the image from the side;
- If the party promises to be long, when preparing the skin of the face, use products to increase the durability of the make-up (primers, bases, etc.);
- Be careful with the highlighter – its excess will look like white spots on the face and in the light of flashlights.

Multi-color make-up on the eyelids, which is also called the “butterfly effect”. Minus – it is not easy to recreate such a makeup at home with experience, besides, there is a chance to go too far with shades.
