Women who are attending a special event may be wondering how to apply makeup for night time.

Applying Night Time Make-Up

The truth is, applying make-up at night is not that different from applying daytime make-up.  The only difference is that women can be more creative with their make-up choices.

The Difference Between Nighttime and Daytime Make-Up

During the day, women tend to choose conservative make-up colors and styles.  This is because many people feel bright colors are inappropriate for the workplace.  Generally, workers wear light make-up.  For example, a woman may wear foundation, concealer, a light lipstick and blush to work.  Women who go out at night can wear heavier make-up and try out colorful make-up trends.  The reason behind this is that heavy make-up, bright colors and creative designs look better under artificial light.

A Step By Step Guide

Listed below are some tips and tricks women can use when they are applying evening make-up.

Start With Applying a Good Base

The key to a good make-up look is having a solid base.  Using foundation and concealer will hide flaws and stop make-up from sliding off the face.

Firstly, women should select the right foundation for their skin tone.  The ideal color will sink into the skin without making the skin appear lighter or darker.  Once consumers have a suitable foundation, they can spread it over their skin using a brush or sponge.  The next step is applying concealer.  Concealer should be patted over any spots, scars and under eye circles.

Face powder can then be brushed over the skin.  Powder is required as it sets the make-up so that it stays in place.  Those who want an extra “glow” can brush some bronzer over their face.

Applying Eye Make-Up

During the nighttime, women have the option of being more bold with their eye make-up.  For instance, women can use eyebrow pencil or heavy eyeliner.  Evenings are also a good time to try bright and/or dark eyeshadow.  Eyeliner and mascara should be used at the end to finish the look.

Applying eyeliner is one of the most tricky aspects of make-up application.  Most women are scared to apply eyeliner as they are afraid they may poke themselves in the eye.  As with everything in life, practice makes perfect.  After several applications, women will be able to apply a smooth line of eyeliner with a steady hand.

One of the most popular eye trends is false eyelashes.  Women who are brave enough to try fake eyelashes can buy them at a department stores.  As most lash packets come with glue, they are relatively easy to apply.

Applying Blusher to the Cheeks

Blusher can make a woman appear more fresh and natural.  Most women tend to use powdered blush.  However, more and more women are turning to cream based rouge.  This product gives is easy to apply and creates a natural look.  All women need to do to use it is dab a spot on the cheeks and rub it in.

Putting on Lipstick

The final step of applying make-up is putting on lipstick.  Before women do this, they should color in their lips with lip liner.  This will extend the life of the lipstick and stop it from rubbing off.

Nighttime is the ideal time to try bright red lipstick.  This color is suitable for parties and other social events.  Those who do decide to try this should not apply too much eye make-up.  Heavy eye make-up combined with bright lips can give women a “clownish” look.

Evening make-up can be a lot of fun.  Women who do not wear make-up often can try out new looks and products.  This is an opportunity to see how one looks with heavier and more fashionable make-up looks.  Those who are wondering how to apply make-up for nighttime can get ideas online and in magazines.
