A mixed drink celebration makeup look

I can tell you the last time I had a cocktail, since it was last June at a jazzy lounge on Frenchman St. in new Orleans, as well as when in NOLA, you must drink fruity, froo-froo drinks with silly names like champagne Supernova, however I can’t tell you the last time I went to an actual mixed drink party.

Because I can’t remember.


It may have been 2005. Or 2006? potentially in Toronto? Nem vagyok benne biztos. My memory gets progressively fuzzier in my advanced age. If I might only take the locations in there that store the lyrics to Chris brown tunes as well as reallocate them to more important things, like dates including mixed drink parties…

Anyway, I’d extremely much like to go to more mixed drink parties, however not for the mixed drinks or the convo (although they’re usually quite fantastic too). more for the fun of just getting dressed up as well as putting on elegant makeup (two of my preferred things to do!).

If you’re reading this, let’s go to more mixed drink parties.


Your darling wife.

P.S. Please make tacos for dinner tonight.

So, this look here. We’re coming up on holiday celebration season (it’s truly not that far away), so I believed it would be great method to turn it into a tutorial.

I wished to do something a bit different than standard-issue black winged liner as well as a bright red lip (although that’s a great look, too, as well as it never goes outta style), since celebrations are the perfect reason to try something new, am I right?

I went for a somewhat smoky taupe as well as navy eye with a hint of light blue iridescent sparkle, however I believe the special sauce is the bright white on the lower water line as well as the shimmery white highlight on the lower tear duct. They provide the look a bit of a subtle edge as well as lengthen the eye. A warm nude lip as well as peachy cheeks total the ensemble.

There’s a bit color in the look, which may be intimidating if you’re unaccustomed to using anything other than browns as well as beiges, however I believe it’s extremely wearable.

You might couple something such as this with a bit black dress, of course, or perhaps a gray or white gown (a body con one would be adorable if you’ve got the figure to pull it off). Basically, anything neutral would enable the color on your eyes to truly pop.

Now, take a dainty chug from that mixed drink glass, as well as let’s get started!

1. apply primer as well as powder

Let’s fast-forward, virtually, with our deal with primer, foundation, concealer as well as brows — BZZZ! (I went with a fuller protection base right here since I believed it balanced well with the color on the eyes as well as the full brows.) besides of that, apply an eye primer to your lids, as well as let it set for a few minutes to provide it time to totally dry. then lightly dust a translucent powder around your lids from lash line to brow bone.

I always like to dust a powder on top of my primer, particularly if there will be a great deal of blending up in the mix, like we’ll be doing here. The powder kind of pillows things as well as provides the lids some slip, so whatever we layer on top will be easier to blend.

(Keep this technique in your back pocket for whenever you do smoky eyes! It’ll make your life so much easier.)

2. apply a matte taupe into the crease as well as along the lower lash line

In this look we’ll be doing what I like to phone call “mirroring,” where we do something on our lids, as well as then do it once again on our lower lash line, as well as it starts right here with a matte tópszín.

Sweep it into the crease, as well as blend out the edges. then run the exact same shadow along your lower lash line.

What I like to do right here is really begin with the shadow on the bottom, so I’ll take a flat brush, as well as run it at an angle the complies with the lower lash line. This assists to set the angle at the outer corner as well as serves as a guide for exactly how far I requirement to go out with the shadow.

3. clean up the edges with concealer

If you struggle (like I do) getting your angles to match, please understand you’re not alone! That’s been one of the banes of my existence for most of my makeup life. since my eyes aren’t completely symmetrical, I almost always have to do some correcting. It’s soooo easy, though, so don’t trip if your angles are less than perfect at this step. If they aren’t, just run a clean with leftover concealer on it along the edges on either or both eyes to clean them up as well as change the angles.

Next, take a smidgen of deal with powder and, keeping that exact same brush, run it, ever so gently, across the line you made to mellow it out.

You don’t want it to look as well obvious, ya know?

I like to do this near the begin of specific eye looks so I can get the general shape, however I’lllikewise do it once again at the end to clean up the edges.

4. apply a matte awesome brown into the crease as well as along the lower lash line

Now, sweep a matte awesome brown in the crease just below the taupe we used in step two. then blend that exact same color along the lower lash line.

If it looks janky, don’t worry. At this step it totally should, however it’ll begin coming together in a moment.

Also, don’t concern if your blending isn’t perfect right here either. Take it simple on yourself, ya overachiever! You are 100% enabled to correct things along the way.

5. apply a satiny navy onto the mobile lid as well as lower lash line

Pat as well as blend a satiny navy onto your mobile lid, which is the part your lid that moves when you blink, concentrating most of the color in the outer corner (you want to keep that outer corner nice as well as dark for depth). Now, run that exact same shadow along your lower lash lines.

6. apply a shimmery light blue in the center as well as inner part of your lid, in addition to your lower lash line

Next, apply a shimmery light blue in the center as well as the inner part of the lid, as well as yup — you guessed it — take it along the lower lash line, too. blend that sh*t like the rockstar you are!

7. Tightline your upper water line

TIGHTLINING! It’s what’s for dinner. So grab your blackest black liner, as well as tightline your upper water line.

8. apply a navy liner along your upper as well as lower lash lines

Why stop lining there? C’mon, let’s push it a bit further. apply as well as blend a navy liner along your upper as well as lower lash lines for higher depth.

9. apply false lashes and/or mascara

Since this is a great makeup look for going out, false lashes in shape well, however they aren’t mandatory. You might likewise just apply mascara to your upper as well as lower lashes.

I went with the falsies, as well as since symmetry plays a huge part in this eye look, I chosen a pair that are quite much similar in length from the inner to the outer corner, except for a bit additional length in the middle.

9. apply white liner on the lower water line as well as a shimmery white shadow along the inner part of the lower tear duct

Ooh! now this is my preferred part because, after this, whatever falls into place.

OK, first, you gotta run a Q-tip along your lower water line to eliminate any type of black eyeliner or mascara.

After you’ve done that, try not to blink, since you don’t want that lower water line to have any type of wetness on it. If it’s dry, whatever you layer on top of it will stick.

Jó. Now, apply a white eyeliner along that lower water line.

Give it about a minute to set, as well as repeat with one more layer for more intensity.

Now take an angled brush, as well as apply a shimmery white shadow to the innermost part of your lower lash line, just along the tear duct…

Both of these things will immediately open up your eyes as well as makes ’em look BIGGER, brighter as well as somewhat elongated.

10. apply bronzer, blush, highlighter, lip pencil as well as gloss

To balance with the cooler navy as well as blue tones on the eyes, surface up with a warm nude lip, bronzer (under my cheekbones, around the perimeter of the face, across the bridge of my nose), a warm peach blush (apples of my cheeks) as well as highlighter (down the bridge of my nose, on my upper cheekbones, on my Cupid’s bow).

And there you go! You’re all done, babe, as well as prepared for cocktails!
