Apply Makeup for an Evening Look

Edited by Kara, MsBarbs, Anonymous, Eng

Hi, you're watching VisiHow. My name is Kara, and today I will show you how to achieve an elegant evening out look. For that I will be using creamy metallic eyeshadows. In my case, I am using Avon brand. I have a silver and a gold color to choose from. I will choose one of these. The trick with this is that I will be using some matte eyeshadows in combination with the metallic shininess so I do not look like a disco dancer from the 70s. I can use brown matte shadows to go with the yellow metallic creamy shadow or silver with the black.

Steps

  1. 1
    Let's begin by applying foundation to our face.
    Foundation helps to even the skin tone and hide any imperfections. I am using a Mac facial powder, which is one the best powders in my opinion, this is a medium tone. The medium tone will work for a tone or two lighter or darker than the color of the actual powder. For example, my skin is darker than the color of the facial powder, however there isn't an obvious difference once it is applied and it allows me to achieve the effect of lighter and smoother skin.

    Also, remember to apply some facial powder onto your lips.
    Covering your lips with facial powder allows the lipstick to sit better and will allow a closer color to the actual lipstick.

    The next step is to do my eyebrows, as you can see I don't have large eyebrows.
    I am going to be using Anastasia medium brown eyebrow pomade.

  5. 5
    I start by defining the bottom line of the eyebrow.

  6. 6
    I do the same thing to the top in order to frame the eyebrow.
    Framing the eyebrow makes applying this type of eyebrow pomade easier. When you use a pencil it's not as critical. A pomade however is a creamier texture. If you do not frame the eyebrow first when using a pomade you may end up with uneven borders.

    Fill in the eyebrow, and repeat the process on the other eyebrow.

    As you can see my eyebrows are finished.
    When you do your eyebrows it's important to remember the three basic facial points. The first point is that your eyebrow starts on the same line with the edge of your nose.

    The second point is that when you turn your brush or pencil at an angle so that it goes through the middle of your eye it should point on the exact angle of the eyebrow.

  10. 10
    The third point is that when you turn your pencil to where it goes over the end of your eye it should point to the end of your eyebrow.
    This is the universal recommendation on how to shape and form your eyebrows if you have a preference for a thinner or thicker eyebrow the same advice is applicable. Even if, naturally, one of your eyebrows is higher than the other this advice does not change.

    Let's apply our eyeshadow now.
    I'm going to use the black-and-white eyeshadow pallet from Avon.

  12. 12
    I'm going to start by applying a highlight under my eyebrows.
    This will make the eyebrows look higher and will make your eyes appear to be more open.

    Now I'm going to use the black, to draw a line on my natural wrinkle line and then I will blend that in.

    I'm going to drag it a little towards the end of my eyebrow as well.

    In order to properly blend I am going to want to remove the excess eyeshadow from my brush by wiping it on to my forearm.

    Do the same thing with the left eyelid.
    Be very careful while applying black eyeshadow because it is harder to correct a mistake. For example if you're going to apply some brown colors or any other natural color you don't have to be very straight and precise with them. however, black color is very dark and harder to correct mistakes.

    I'm going to apply some black shadow again but this time under my eye.
    Do the same for the left eye as well.

    I am now going to use the golden creamy eyeshadow.
    I'm going to apply them on the area which I have not applied shadow to yet. I am applying it with my finger. In the disco or evening light they will look very shiny. If you get some of the eyeshadow on your eyelashes it is not a problem because we are going to be using mascara and eyeliner.

    I'm going to check to make sure the same amount of black eyeshadow is applied to both eyes after applying the metallic eyeshadow.
    I believe I need to apply some more black eyeshadow to my right eyelid.

    The next step is to apply eyeliner.
    This is my favorite liquid eyeliner because it is a marker. It is also Avon brand in black. I'm going to start with the inner corner of my eye and apply it right on top of the eyeshadow. Don't forget to fill up the space between the eyeliner and your eyelashes. I'm going to create a small the wing at the corner of my eye. Let us do the same thing for the other eye.

    I have applied eyeliner to both eyes and am going to apply mascara.
    I am using Avon's super shock mascara in black. This mascara is very convenient and effective. Sometimes you see the commercials where you can obviously tell the model is wearing fake eyelashes and they promise the same effect by using their mascara but in real life it doesn't do what it promises to do. This mascara separates each single eyelash and it creates volume layer by layer. I go from having no eyelashes to having really beautiful eyelashes.

    Can you see a difference between the left side where there is no eyelashes and the right side which I have covered in mascara?
    Let's do the other eye as well.

    What I want to do next is apply some blush on my cheeks.
    This will allow me to have a fresher look like this.

    Because we are using creamy shadow I'm going to apply some with my finger right above my cheek bone.
    In the artificial light, or in the evening, it will give a nice glittery look.

    To finish the total look, I am going to apply something to my lips.
    Because I have a heavy top, very dark eyeshadow, I am going to be using a lighter colored lipstick which is going to be Mac number 81. I have already run out officially however there is still some left in the bottom which I am going to dig out with my fingernail. Then using my fingers I will apply it to my lips. The texture of Mac lipsticks is a soft and creamy texture which keeps your lips moisturized.
