TUTORIAL: GOING OUT MAKEUP
By Aimee Fisher, 21 June 2019
The statement eyes
Let’s start with the base. Shape around your hairline, cheekbones and jawline using a shade slightly deeper than your natural skintone from the Revolution Ultra Cream Contour Palette. Blend well using a medium-sized brush. Next, gently dot MAC Studio Fix Concealer under your eyes, chin, nose and forehead and blend with a slightly smaller brush. OK, now you're ready to bake! Dust Revolution Bake & Blot across the face, then bring on the blush with a subtle sweep of the ‘Make You Mine’ from the NARS Exposed Cheek Palette. Lastly, for your skin, apply ‘Light Of The Party’ from the MAC Hyper Real Highlighting Palette in Flash and Awe to the top of your cheekbones, and anywhere else you want to catch the light.
Now for the eyes. Use Lottie London Eye Foil in shade ‘Sell Out’ (we’re obsessed with this) and create a winged shape using the applicator – give it a little bit of time to dry before you line under your eyes with the pink shade in the Lottie Eyeshadow Palette – The Mauves. Frame with a flick of Benefit Roller Liner in Black, extending it out to just before the eyeshadow finishes. It’s not going out-out if there isn’t a pair of falsies, and this time we’ve gone for Ardell Wispies Lashes. As always, wait until the glue goes slightly tacky before you apply, then press on gently.
While you’re letting your lashes settle, layer NARS Explicit Colour Lip Duo in Sex Machine onto your lips. Now, finish your eye makeup with a coat of Benefit Bad Gal Mascara for extra impact. See you on the dance floor.
The bold lips
Use the same tutorial for the base look above to prep your skin ready to focus on the lips. To start with, use the NYX Matte Lip Liner in shade ‘Spicy’ to define your lips. Next, fill with NARS Explicit Colour Lip Duo in Dragon Girl. All done! Max impact, minimum effort. More time to focus on what to wear, right?
