3 Stunning Evening Party Makeup Looks You Must Try

With Xmas and New Year around the corner, it’s time to spend some time reinventing the way you look.

The party season’s going to be here before you know it and the one thing you definitely don’t want to look like is everybody else (or worse, look the same as you did a year ago). It’s time to ring in the new with some great new party makeup that’s being popularised by the global glitterati. Besides, this is the best time to get out of your comfort zone, shake off that staid image and experiment with some bold new colour palettes and evening makeup techniques.

Here are 3 evening makeup looks that show you how to do party makeup in simple DIY steps. But remember, you either highlight the eyes or the lips, don’t do both.



The best part about gold is that it is impartial to any particular skin tone. So make gold eye shadow and glitter your new besties with these gorgeous application tips.

How to get gold and gliterry evening party makeup look:

Step 1: Prime your eyes with a creamy nude shadow in powder or pencil form.

Step 2: Apply light strokes of bronze to the inner and outer corners of your lid.

Step 3: Apply dark brown with a brush and blend evenly throughout the crease.

Step 4: Reapply the nude eye shadow on the eyelid centre; this will highlight your next colour, a light bronze which you will gently pat on your lid using a medium, flat-tipped brush.

Step 5: Blend a neutral colour slightly above the lid in even strokes to avoid harsh lines.

Step 6: Use a very light colour with shimmer to highlight your brow bone.

Step 7: Apply a waterproof black gel liner to the lid and smudge the outer corner down with a flat-tipped brush. Then, swipe sparkly gold eyeliner along the outer corners of your eyes and along your lower lash line.

Step 8: Pat a bright shimmery gold dust on your lid with your finger. Be careful not to let it spill all over your face.

Step 9: For a touch of drama (who doesn’t like drama!), apply black mascara and black liner on your upper lash line.



You got it! We’re talking about bold, red lips here. Now this one takes much more than the right technique to carry off. It needs the right attitude! If you have it, go ahead and flaunt it, honey. But remember to keep the rest of your makeup, especially the eyes, in subtle shades or near nude. A bit of black mascara on the top lashes is all you need.

How to get bold red evening party makeup look:

Step 1: Choose a sheer lipstick for a more natural look. Avoid cream or matte formulas.

Step 2: Apply lip balm and let it stay for a few minutes. Then blot off the excess balm with a tissue.

Step 3: Using the side of the pencil, not the tip, define and fill in. A muted red or berry shade works best.

Step 4: Apply a thin, even layer of lip colour with a lip brush.



If subtlety is how you make your statement, a vibrant pop of one shimmeringshade is enough to speak volumes.

How to get monochromatic evening party makeup look:

Step 1: Choose a shimmery powder shadow in a rich colour palette such as purple, royal blue, or emerald.

Step 2: Using a brush, apply an even layer from lash line to crease. Apply another layer if you’d like it brighter.

Step 3: Coat the top and bottom lashes with black mascara to define them.

Step 4: Keep the rest of the face neutral. Opt for a natural, peachy shade of blush and a nude lip gloss.

Step 5: Avoid eyeliner as this will make the eyes seem too made-up.

With looks like these, the party will never end!
