Out on the town…


When you are heading out for a night out on the town, you want to look your best.  You can spend a fortune on your outfit and shoes, but if you do not pull it all together with the right cosmetics then you are not going to be stopping traffic when you go out.

One of the most important things to remember when you are reading makeup tips, do what feels right for you.  Just because so and so says that you have to wear blue eyeshadow, it does not mean that you have to. These are suggestions that can be taken and bent to your needs.

Number One: Go Bold

Evening looks are often more bold then how you would look at the office. There are a few reasons for this. The first one being that you are probably a bit more dressed up then going to work so your beauty routine should change accordingly. The second is that many places you go in the evening are dimly lit and you want to make sure that the work that you have put into your makeup stands out.

Number Two: A Smoky Eye is Always In

If you are ever in doubt about what type of look to create, you can never go wrong with a smoky eye. It has been the look for as long as anyone can remember. You can do it with the basic colors or change it up a bit. A deep plum eyeshadow can make an amazing smoky eye look for a night out on the town.

Number Three: Long Lasting Foundation

Foundation can come off through a long evening if you do not choose the right formula. There are some great all day foundation makeup that can take you from early evening until as late you want to go.

Number Four: Stay Put Lipstick

Just like you want your foundation to last, you do not want to have to reapply your lipstick after every beverage. There are many kiss and drink proof lipsticks out on the market these days. You will want to have a couple of them in your cosmetic kit for these nights out on the town.

Now that you have these must know makeup tips down, you can easily get yourself ready for any night out on the town. The key is to remember to be confident and take chances with your look to make sure that you really turn heads.
