I thought I would share my current evening makeup routine, nothing too flashy here as I like to keep things pretty simple:

– Start by using a primer so that your makeup lasts all evening.

-Even your skin tone using your favorite foundation, a fuller coverage makes for a flawless base.

– Conceal under the eyes and on any problem areas.

-Powder is key especially down the center of your face.

-Bronze the skin on the high points of your face where the sun would naturally hit, temples, cheekbones, nose and chin. Sometimes I even use bronzer as a blush and apply it on the cheeks as well.

-Highlighter is always nice for an evening out. You want to apply it so that it catches the light, on the tops of your cheekbones and under the brow bone.

-Define Brows, if I am going for a more dramatic eye I like to make sure the brows are strong.

-Use a primer if you are going to be using eye shadow, I started by sweeping a gold colour all over my lids, then took a kohl liner and smudged my upper lash line, bringing it underneath my eye as well. I then set the black with a plum coloured eyeshadow and made sure everything was blended well.

-I love using a light frosty pigment just on the inner corners of my eye and brow bone, you can use a frosty eye shadow if you don’t own pigment. I find this step really makes a big difference in opening up the eye!

-Go for a neutral gloss, I always follow this rule if the eyes are dramatic then go for a neutral lip colour. If you want to wear a bright lip then keep the eyes simple.

This is just how I like to wear my makeup, you could go for dramatic eyes pared with bold lips, glitter and fake lashes, but I like to keep things pretty simple and still feel like myself:)
