How To Do Black Tie Makeup Without Looking Like A Clown - Devezin Cosmetics



I’m going to a black tie gala, and I’m at a total loss for how to do my makeup. How do I get an  evening face without looking like I painted everything on?

The easiest way to avoid looking overly “done” is to opt for a classic makeup look. Your goal should be sophisticated, grown-up glamour and elegance — think Grace Kelly. A crucial element is a totally flawless complexion, so allow plenty of time to prepare the skin well, and apply foundation to ensure a long-lasting base.
First, cleanse and exfoliate the face thoroughly; apply a hydrating mask and a generous amount of moisturizer. Use a hydrating eye serum as well. Nothing says “painted on” more than flaking foundation.
Start with the eyes, that way you don’t have to completely reapply your face if shadow smudges. Tidy the brows and emphasize the arch. Pat a little concealer or primer over the lid to neutralize any redness. Apply pale beige of cream eyeshadow over the lid from the lash line to the brow bone, then blend a slightly darker neutral shade into the socket crease. Using a gunmetal eye pencil, draw along the upper lash line, working the tip between the lashes for added volume. Draw just under the lower lashes and soften the line with a smudger. Curl the lashes and apply lengthening mascara.
Prep the face well and apply illuminating primer. Choose a foundation with a matte finish and work it thoroughly into the skin. Apply concealer where needed, then dust lightly with translucent powder. A touch of highlighter on the points of the cheekbones and chin contours the face into a perfect oval. Then create a natural glow by sweeping a little pink powder blush onto the apples of the cheeks and blending it along the cheekbones.
For the lips, dab concealer around the lip area and over the lip itself. This will remove any redness so that the line of the lips will be sharp and defined. Spend time drawing the perfect symmetrical outline with a red lip pencil. Fill in the color with the pencil and smooth it out with a brush. Apply a creamy scarlet lipstick over the top, blot, and reapply for long lasting finish.

Brazilian Bikini Wax

An important step to prepare for a bikini wax is to avoid swimming or sunning oneself for a full 24 hours prior to the wax. After the waxing, you will want to consider the same for a couple of days. The skin can have some redness or bumping, which can be helped by ice. There is also the occasional ingrown hair, which can be iced, and then have anti-bacterial cream applied to ward off infection. Aestheticians recommend gently exfoliating the pubic area before the wax, and then doing so regularly after the wax to cut down on ingrown hairs.

Get Ready for Summer

One of the easiest ways to update your makeup bag each season is to add in current color trends. And while it’s probably inadvisable to replace your whole makeup kit with a fleeting palette-du-jour, adding a few fresh products can go a long way. Accessories, especially, are a smart way to incorporate timely hues, and many of us switch those up anyway. One prime example: A new eye-shadow in lilac is a stylish asset that can take you through spring and summer.

With summer here, it's time to reach for the sunscreen. But not everyone is convinced that skin protection is a necessity. "Older adults grew up at a time when unprotected skin exposure wasn't a cardinal sin, and many I talk to think a little sun is good for them. …
