Formal eye makeup to last all night
We are a couple of weeks into spring, and the days are getting longer and the nights warmer. But this doesn’t just mean you can get away with bare legs on a Saturday night without looking like you’ve lost your way, it also means that formal season is just around the corner.
Ladies, it’s time to start thinking about your date, your dress, your shoes and most importantly, your make-up!
We guarantee that of all the things you have to worry about on the night – will your date turn up? Is your dress formal enough? Do your shoes match? – your make-up won’t be one of them. We guarantee you a night of flawless make-up, no re-touching necessary.
#1 A good base
Start your look off right with a good base. Apply Revlon Photoready Eye Primer + Brightener to the lids of your eyes. It not only acts as a primer to ensure eyeshadows and concealers stay-put, but also contains photochromatic pigments that reflect and diffuse light, to brighten the eyes. Which means that you can stay out way past your curfew, and nobody will know.
#2 Layer it up
Layer Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo Eye Shadow on top of your primer for colour that lasts all night. The shadow mimics the intensity of a tattoo, and delivers 24 hours of water and crease-resistant colour. The best part is that it’s available in a range of colours – from bronze to bright blue – so you can match or clash your shadow (depending on how brave you are!) with any dress.
#3 Define those eyes
bh member’s love Bobbi Brown Longwear Gel Eyeliner. We guarantee this liner will last the distance. The gel-based formula comes in a pot, which means it’s super easy to apply. Use a sharp-angled brush (we recommend MAC 263 Small Angle Brush) along your lash line to define your eyes.
#4 Add a little drama
It’s your formal so you need to draw attention to your eyes. Add a little drama with the Ardell Lash Starter Kit #105. The kit contains a pair of long, glamorous lashes, adhesive and an easy-to-use applicator - everything you need to complete your look.
