Make-up Look: Holiday Cocktail With Friends
By Michela Marra
Hi Pretty Birds,
We are over the moon you loved our post on outfits to wear for an evening of cocktails with friends. Many of you have asked us for tips on how to create Tamu’s makeup look for the occasion, so thanks to some precious advice from makeup artist Melly, we’ve got the rundown for you below. Ready?
Make-up Look Holiday Cocktail With Friends: get the beauty look
Apply NARS Sheer Glow foundation all over face. If your skin tone is the same as Tamu’s, choose the shade Càdiz. Next, set the base with Creme Puff pressed powder in 42 Deep Beige by Max Factor.
Delineate your eyebrows with a pencil like Impeccable brow pencil in black by Mac Cosmetics (it’s discontinued). Then, apply Double Wear Stay-In-Place Eye pencil in Onix by Estèe Lauder at the base of the upper lash and dot over upper eyelid, except in the inner corner of the eye. Smudge your eyeliner with a brush beyond the crease line.
Apply creme shadow Excess Shimmer in Onyx by Max Factor to the upper lid only, avoiding the inner corner of the eye. The makeup’s twist lies in the black smokey eye and the coloured inner corner of the eye, as well as the difference in finish with glittery black and matte blue.
First, apply Kohl Eye Liner Pencil in 080 Cobalt blue by Max Factor to the inner corner, then using a damp brush apply the matte blue color from the Trio Eye Shadow, romantic palette blue color by Labo Filler Make-up.
Emphasize lashes using Haute & Naughty Lash Mascara by Mac Cosmetics, while to illuminate the area below the eyes, use the Stick Concealer in Caramel by NARS.
For contrasting, apply Pressed Lightening Powder by Labo Filler Make-up; apply Blush in Rose Gold by Sleek Make-up on cheeks. Finally, lips are natural and super hydrated using Intensifying Lip balm in 40 Exquisite Karamel by Max Factor.
