Life as a twenty-something career woman seems like a carefree and fun existence when you have your girl friends around you. The gals always look forward to the coming of each weekend when it’s time to party all night and sleep all day. Some girls liked to party just to drink and dance the night away. Others wanted to meet someone they could be with for one night or for the rest of their lives. Whatever their reason for painting the town red, they’ll look gorgeous with little effort when they apply the following makeup tips for a girls’ night out from cosmetic experts at Fashion Plus.
Start with Perfectly Shaped Eyebrows
After applying foundation to create an even skin tone on your face, start with the eye area, specifically the brows. By now, any errant hair growth that might ruin the shape should have been plucked cleanly. It’s not you who decide what shape your brows shall have, but the direction of the hair growth and the bone underneath the arch. Some women use a string while others use a pair of tweezers to manually remove the hair follicles.
Experience-wise, plucking isn’t a perfect art. Sometimes, a few follicles from the no-touch zone get plucked mistakenly and the brow ends up with thinner patches or lighter portions. To fill in these little gaps, use a medium brown shade from your eye shadow palette to darken your brows a little. With an applicator, line the arch of the brow to better define its shape and extend the tails a bit longer to create a cat’s eye look. Meanwhile, add some fullness to the inner ends by mixing taupe with light brown and apply the shade to the sparse hair growth near the middle of the forehead.
Add Definition to the Eyelids with Dark Eyeliner
The type and color of eyeliner to apply depends on the shades of eyeshadow you used and the effect you wanted to have. Waterproof liquid eyeliner lasts longer and adds more definition than a pencil. On one hand, some women like to smudge the kohl after application for a smokey look. Of course, everything matches when you go with black, but adventurous girls like to use plum, silver, or dark red on some nights for a unique look.
Apply the eyeliner under the lashes both on top and at the bottom contours of the eyes before adding them to the eyelids. Line the edges from the inside to the outside. Remember to thicken the line at the edges. You may use both a pencil for smudging and liquid eyeliner for definition. Finally, brush a little mascara on your lashes to widen your eyes and accentuate your eye color. kohl uk
