Make-up Tutorial: Gala Look
Glamorous and irresistible - this gala look will draw all eyes to you.
Simply follow these steps:
The complexion for an elegant evening makeup should look fresh and photogenic. It should also be long-lasting in case it needs to hold until the early hours of the morning.
Step 1: The Perfect Base & Foundation
To enhance the appearance of the skin and increase the durability of your make-up, add a dollop of oil and silicone free Skin Perfecting Make-up Base. If you have dry skin, choose the anti-aging Make-up Base. Give your skin a naturally radiant look with softening High Definition Foundation. Brush the gentle matte texture of the light reflecting make-up base onto your face. Begin at the center of your face and work outward, using the All in One Powder & Make-up Brush Premium Quality.
Step 2: Concealer & Illuminator
Refresh your complexion with the light reflecting Perfect Teint Concealer. Using the integrated brush, apply the concealer to darker areas such as the area under the eyes, eyelid creases, or nasolabial folds (laugh lines). Then blend the concealer with your fingertips or the Make-up Brush Premium Quality. The shade of the concealer should always be slightly lighter than your skin tone. For a fresh look, choose a peach tone (no. 3 or no. 5); for visible shadows under the eyes, choose a yellow tone (no. 6 or no. 9); for heavily tanned skin, or redness-prone skin around the eye area, choose no. 7. The Perfect Teint Illuminator will make your skin shine.
Step 3: Durability
EYES - Cat Eye Look
The Cat Eye look creates irresistible moments in the evening.
Step 1: Eyeliner
For durable eye make-up, begin with an Eyeshadow Base. Use your fingertips to gently spread the base onto your eyelid. The eyeshadow base has a calming effect, and enables eyeshadow pigments to appear brighter and more evenly on your lids. Next, draw a line along your lower and upper lashes with Soft Eye Liner waterproof no. 10 and be sure to emphasize the outer edge of your eye.Then gently blend the eyeliner into the crease with a small Eyeshadow Brush.
Step 2: Eyeshadows
Starting at the outermost tip of your eyelid, use the tip of a large Eyeshadow Brush to brush Eyeshadow no. 520 along the natural crease of your eye. Use the same shade of eyeshadow to accent the lower lash line. Apply dark Eyeshadow no. 503 to the outer third of your eyelid and blend it into the crease. Use the light Eyeshadow no. 33 as a highlighter by applying it to the highest point under your eyebrow and the inner corners of your eyes. Lastly, starting at the highest point under your eyebrow, brush the highlighter eyeshadow towards the eyelid and blend it into the darker eyeshadow.
Step 3: Mascara
Step 4: Eyebrows
Complete the trendy Cat Eye look with the Eye Brow Color Pen. The pen’s soft tip imitates even the smallest missing hairs. Use the eyebrow pen to fill in the gaps and then brush your eyebrows into shape with the Lash Brush (eyebrow brush).
The highly pigmented Art Couture Lipstick, with an ultra soft and supple texture, is the perfect lipstick to accessorize a gorgeous evening gown.
Step 1: Lip Liner
Soft Lip Liner waterproof no. 03 conceals any unevenness in the lip contour. Line your lips with Soft Lip Liner waterproof no. 72 and blend it into your lips with the lip brush. Accentuate your lips with the highly pigmented Art Couture Lipstick no. 362. Its weightless texture, intense opacity and incomparable comfort will perfectly emphasize your lips.
Step 2: Durability
Magic Fix absolutely guarantees waterproof protection. It also prevents your lipstick from rubbing off and smearing. First, dab your lips with a paper towel to get rid of any excess lipstick. Then apply Magic Fix onto your lips and your lip liner. Allow the Magic Fix to dry for a few seconds, and then moisten your lips with the tip of your tongue.
Even fingernails are finding their way into the limelight:
Wear one or two layers of Art Couture Nail Lacquer no. 659. The brush fits shape of the nail, and paint’s texture leaves nothing else to be desired. It has immediate opacity, perfect durability, rich pigmentation, and is fast drying. Lastly, use Ultra Quick Dry Nail Lacquer for a long-lasting shine and to expedite the drying time.
