Face is like a canvas for makeup. Creating a flawless face is as important as choosing the right outfit. Apply a medium coverage foundation and remember to blend in well. This would hide any spots & imperfect skin tone, giving you a flawless base.

Keep a concealer handy and use it to hide stubborn blemishes and under-eye circles.

4. Show some hide some:

Focus just on one facial feature, if you are going dramatic or bold on eyes, then keep rest of the makeup toned down by keeping it simple. Similarly, if you want bold lips, play down on cheeks and eyes.

If you go with bold eyes and lips, the odds are that you will look like a clown and if you down play both you will end up with a lovely day look that just doesn’t work as a evening makeup look!

Stylecraze Says
Even if you keep your eyes toned down, don’t forget to use mascara and kohl or eyeliner. You can also use a nude palette to make them look striking but low-key.

Fake a glow by applying a powder highlighter just in the right areas. Highlighter should be applied where the light hits on the face naturally and remember the mantra – a little is more. Apply some on the arch of brow bone, cheek bone and Cupid’s bow. This would help light to reflect, resulting in a glow. If you want to make your face look longer or shorter then a highlighter used for contouring works like a charm. If you want to elongate the face, then use the highlighter along the jaw line and just under the cheek bones to give it a sharper look. While if you are looking to make it seem shorter then highlight the cheek bone in a rounded fashion. This will cut down on the length.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you wear concealer for evening makeup?

Yes. If you have dark pigmentation on your face, a concealer will help you cover it up.

What is the difference between day makeup and evening makeup?

Lighting is the main factor to consider when choosing your makeup. During the day, the bright light makes your face look radiant. Hence, you need not put so much effort into the tone of the makeup. On the other hand, the lack of light at night leaves you space to try dramatic makeup effects that play with light and shadow. The shades you use must also be a bit more saturated to make you stand out.

Should you wear eyeliner for evening makeup?

Absolutely! Evening makeup is about depth, drama, and bold experiments.
