It's an exciting event to attend but only if your makeup is on point. How do you make sure your makeup looks beautiful and provides the quality you're after? Here are a few tips to implement as soon as you can to improve your look.
1) Be Exhuberant
A meek look is hardly on the cards with a costume party. You'll need the classic white makeup for your face to start things off.
If you're going as a lion, then make it count! You want to go all out with the makeup and make sure those colors pop. This is one of those occasions where excessive makeup is a major plus point. Your overlook appearance will come alive if you put your reservations aside.
Everything should have a bit of an "oomph" to it, and that's going to include using tools you've never used before.
Get out of your comfort zone because you're going as a particular character and that is the mindset you have to approach this with.
2) Emphasize The Eyes
Yes, it is your eyes that will capture the most attention after your costume.
This is where a person's gaze goes after they've looked at your costume. If your eyes sync with the rest of your appearance, it's going to lead to a successful get-up. So, what should you be doing when it comes to your eye makeup?
It depends on the look you're going for.
However, the goal is to make it integrate with the rest of your look and become a standout part of your face. Sticking to the example of a lion, you might go for those long eyelashes and furrowed brows. It is a typical look for the lion and will work wonders with your costume.
3) Become An Empty Canvas
Now, this is where many people mess up, and it leads to inefficient results.
What does it mean to "become an empty canvas?"
The idea is to treat yourself as a model and nothing else. Ignore your "flaws" or things you might hide with makeup. Instead, you want to take advantage of a costume party to get rid of those inhibitions for once. You want to emphasize the costume and become it.
This is a powerful way to enjoy the moment and get full value out of the event.
Enjoy these tips and know your makeup is going to look exceptional from start to finish.
