If you’re a working girl and you have an important event to attend, you may want to glam up a little more than your usual everyday work look! Don’t get intimidated, girls, because going from day to night is super easy with the right tools. Watch my tutorial here!
Here are the products I used to create this look:
THE STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE
STEP 1: SUBTLE SMOKEY EYES
I’m using my L’Oréal Paris La Palette Nudes in Nude Rose for this eye look! Start with a pearl color, applying it all over your lid area as a base. Next, take a classic brown color and use it as a transition shade on your crease. Using a bronzey-brown shade, darken your outer V, then drag the same shadow over the lower lash line to balance out the proportions of the eyes.
STEP 2: CAT-EYE
Use the blackest gel liner you have to create that classic flick! I’m using Maybelline 36H Gel Liner, which is pretty much the BEST drugstore gel liner in the world. Adding a cat-eye to your eye makeup will add both drama and elegance to your gaze.
STEP 3: LASHES
Curl your lashes and pile on the mascara. I’m using Maybelline Hypercurl Volum Express Mascara, which fattens up my lashes while giving them good hold. This is optional, but if you want to be extra glam for your event, put on some falsies! I’m using Bohktoh False Lashes in J-002, which are very wispy, fine, and natural-looking.
STEP 4: SCULPT AND ILLUMINATE
To contour my face, I swept over the hollows of my cheeks, jawline, and temples with Pixi Natural Contour Powder. It’s a universally-flattering matte bronzer that easily adds depth and dimension!
I love adding color to my cheeks to look extra glowy, especially if I don’t plan on using highlighter. Here, I loaded up a blush brush with City Color Natural Glow Blush in Red Carpet Diva, a coral-pink powder formula that is oh-so-summery.
STEP 5: STATEMENT LIPS.
Top off this look with a striking lip color that will look great in pictures. I painted on a coat of L’Oréal Paris Moist Matte Lipstick in Lincoln Rose to give myself a going-out crimson pout.
You are now ready to wow everyone at the event! Good luck, girls, and have a wonderful weekend!
