How to Ace Your Evening Makeup

Evening Makeup Ideas
Amplify your makeup to bring out your features when the sun goes down. A palette of rich jewel tones—think dark plums and dusky greys—creates a soft but decidedly glamorous evening look. For night, turn up the vamp factor in shimmery textures and expert shading techniques (light shadows spotlight an area while dark ones make it recede). Your eyes should be done up to a smudged, purposefully bedroom -inspired effect and lips should appear sensual and full. Try on evening makeup and hairstyles in our virtual makeover studio.

For perfect skin when the sun sets, mix equal parts foundation and liquid highlighter for a luminous complexion. Give it staying power with a dusting of translucent powder.

Brighten up smoky evening eyes with a pearly white eye shadow, blended at the inner corners or underneath the lower lashes. Full, polished arches are a must. Use a brow stencil and colored powder to fill in sparse brows.

Pick accessories that complement the mood of your evening makeup, whether it’s a bold cocktail bauble to call attention to dark finger nail polish, or shoulder-duster chandelier earrings to spotlight chiseled facial features.

To finish your evening makeup look, create a gamine side swoop by parting long bangs to one side and tucking them behind one ear (cover the ear with longer pieces of hair). Extra-large Velcro rollers create softly flipped ends and fullness at the crown. --Stephanie Simons

My favorite tip is the mixing the highlighter and the foundation! It seriously makes my skin look flawless in the nighttime...and gives it a dewy glow :0) This comment has been removed.
