It’s party season!  Which means it’s time to feel and look fabulous.  When it comes to applying party makeup, some of us love it, while some of us hate it.  But we can all agree that it would be great if it was that bit easier.  The simplest of makeup mistakes can completely undo all your work.  These tips and tricks can help you banish those beauty blunders for good!

 

Ghostly Look

Ever wonder why your face can appear ghostly white in photographs?  Even though you’ve spent so much time turning into a bronzed goddess, there’s that issue of a ghostly pale face.  If any of your makeup products, particularly your foundation, contain SPF – keep them for day time use only.  SPF and camera flashes do not go well together, that’s how you end up with a white face in photos from your favourite nights out.  Go for a foundation that contains no SPF for night time looks.  The Illamasqua Skin Base contains no SPF and will leave your skin looking flawless all night long.

Lash Labour

You’re all glam and ready to go, only one lash is falling off and the other is poking your eye.  Is there anything worse?  To make sure your lashes stay put all night long, there are some essential steps to follow.  Step 1: Ensure the lash strip fit your eye shape properly. Trim a couple of single lashes from the inside to make sure the band fits correctly.  Step 2: Let your glue go tacky by leaving it stand alone for 1/2 minutes.  Step 3: Apply a thin line of glue to the lash band, place the lash into position and your eyelid then remove.  When you then go to apply your lashes, the two lines of glue will act almost like a velcro effect.  Voilà!  Perfect lashes that last all night long.
