Formal has a special place in my heart because I get to get all dressed up and dance the night away! It’s like getting to relive prom all over again in college. When it comes to formal you may not be able to, or let’s be honest want to, spend the money that you did in high school on your makeup. No worries, you can look fab without having to hire a makeup artist.
I’ll put a list of all the prices on the products I used at the bottom of this post. I started off with the usual routine, Maybelline Superstay Better Skin foundation and a little Maybelline Master Conceal under my eyes. I set my foundation with Maybelline Fit Me matte poreless pressed powder.
I used a touch of Too Faced bronzer in the shade Chocolate Soleil and Too Faced blush in the shade Who’s Your Poppy. I tried to keep my eyeshadow a bit more muted because I knew that I wanted to rock a bold lip. I used Tarte Eyeshadow in the shade Private Chateau as a base. Rather than using a bold black, I used Tarte’s Stargazing on the Seine in the crease of my eye, which is a more muted grey color with a bit of sparkle.
I lined my eyes with the Revlon Colorstay skinny liquid liner, but be warned you need extreme control of your hands to use this liner or it might get messy. I used Urban Decay Perversion mascara and a bit of brown brow powder with Benefit Gimmie Brow.
For my lipstick, I first lined my lips with NYX Lip liner in the shade Auburn. Then I used MAC lipstick in the shade Diva and I was ready for the night! Play up this look for the next formal event you have. You are sure to look fabulous!
