How to Create a Flawless Makeup Look for a Big Event*

Flawless makeup can be achieved by just about anybody with the right products and tools. You don’t need to be a professional to get a gorgeous makeup look for a big event! The tips in this guide will help you to do your makeup better than you’ve ever done it before. Just make sure you allow yourself a little time to practice beforehand. Take a look:

Always Use a Primer

Using a primer is an essential step in any makeup routine. Use a face primer to ensure that your foundation and the rest of your makeup stays in place. You can also use a primer for your lips and eyelids to give those areas extra staying power! Primers reduce imperfections and make everything last so much longer, so make sure you invest.

Do Your Eyes First

Rather than going through the majority of your makeup routine and then doing your eyes, do your eyes first. It might seem backwards, and not what you’re used to, but it makes a lot of sense! Doing your eyes first allows you to clean up any mistakes and neaten without ruining anything else you’ve done. This gives you perfect looking eyes and a perfect looking base with no stress.


Use the Right Tools

Having the right tools is so important. You can’t just use your fingers and expect to get a flawless finish! A good sponge is best for applying your foundation, while brushes can be used for all kinds of products to get better results. You can even use tools such as cellotape to create the perfect winged eyeliner! There are all kinds of tips and tricks you can use to get the desired look really easily.

Exfoliate and Moisturise Lips

Your lips are going to be one of the biggest elements of your makeup look, so make sure you’ve exfoliated and moisturised them to perfection. This will give you the perfect base for your lipstick. There’s nothing worse than having dry, chapped lips!


Don’t Forget Everywhere Else

You may think that your makeup stops at your face, but it doesn’t. Applying bronzer and highlighter over your chest, shoulders, and legs will enhance you in all of the right places. Then there’s your nails; they need to look perfect as you show them off a lot without realising. This is especially important if you have an event such as your engagement party, as everybody will want to get a look at your ring! These Verragio engagement rings deserve to be accessorized with the right nail polish. Make sure you enhance your accessories and the rest of your look by being thorough everywhere else.

Set Your Makeup

Set your makeup using a good powder, and then by using a good makeup spray. This will ensure that the look you worked so hard to create lasts all night long!

Blend, Blend, Blend

Finally, ensure everything is blended in perfectly. Your tools will help you to do this, but it’s up to you to look at yourself with a critical eye.

Have fun creating the perfect look!
