Makeup Looks To Master: Going Out

Makeup Looks To Master: Going Out

Makeup Looks To Master: Going Out

Things are going up on a Tuesday!  Well, that’s if you count the grocery store as going out… But my going-out makeup is!  Party makeup is the most fun and where you can take more risks.  I like to switch it up for the event, season, weather and just the overall vibes but having one go-to makeup look helps when you don’t have a lot of time to get ready, don’t know what you’re going to wear or exactly how the event will play out.  For the past year this has been my go-to going out makeup look.

Glittery Eyes and a Fun Lip!

Glittery Eyes and a Fun Lip!

Glittery eyes and a fun lip.  After stalking it for some time I finally used my birthday week treats to pick up the Stila Glitter and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow in Kitten Karma.  This is a pretty intense gold glitter that pretty much makes your going out makeup a party all itself.  However it is $24 a pop so when Avon released their Glimmershadows in Fools Gold I noticed it was a pretty good dupe at only $8.  In the photo below I’m wearing the Stila version with a pink lip, in these other photos I’m wearing the Avon Glimmershadow.  You can see they’re very similar and a very fun going out look!

A glittery liquid shadow like these are so impactful you don’t need much.  I like to start with putting some concealer on my eyelid, no need for a primer with the Avon since its so long lasting.  Then I’ll apply the glimmershadow.  I let it dry and set for maybe 30 seconds then I’ll go in with a neutral taupe shade above the crease in the transition area.  If I’m adding an outer v color then I will, like here I used a little black shadow.  I then use my favorite liquid liner Avon True Color Liquid Precise Pen and follow up with curling my lashes and mascara, Avon Love at 1st Lash in black.

When doing my go-to going out look I stick to lip shades I know I love.  A good liquid lipstick will have more staying power for a long night out of eating and drinking!  I’m wearing mark. Pout Velvet Lip Paint in Fancy.  This has been discontinued which means savings for you, its only $5.99 right now!  I did pick up a backup as this is one of my favorites, its very comfortable to wear!  On my face I started with the same primer, Magix tint and blush I used in my everyday makeup look — see here.  Only addition is I added some making setting spray at the end and I did my brows (as seen here).  Going out makeup is the perfect time to contour and highlight however I didn’t do that here… oops.

Believe me you want a glitter shadow in your arsenal!  Even if you don’t go all out a little swipe of this on a clean lid and some mascara will have you instantly party-ready!  But note, these Avon Glimmershadows are selling like hotcakes!  There are a few shades already on back order and not a whole lot of stock coming down the pipes until closer to fall, so I recommend you jump on this Fool’s Gold shade while its still available AND they’re buy one get one half off at my eBoutique!
