Good makeup is not an option, it’s a necessity if you are going to be seen in public. Like most things in life, the way you do your makeup depends on where you’re going and who you’re doing it for. It’s all about personal style and a look that fits with your surroundings and personality. Since my last post, I’ve picked up some great tips from magazines (women’s magazines are often my favorite how-to guides). Here are four looks I am considering applying to myself before I go out clubbing.
Clubbing makeup is a look that’s perfect for the club, but it can be hard to get right. Here are three simple steps to make sure your clubbing look is absolutely on point.
- Start with a good base. This gives you the foundation for your eyeshadow and eyeliner, so it’s important to get it right! If you’re new to liquid foundation, try using a brush to apply it and blend it out before moving on to step two.
- Next up is eyeshadow! For this look, we recommend going with shimmery shades of gold and bronze with hints of burgundy if you have darker skin tones (or if you want to go for an “au naturel” look). Make sure that your eye makeup doesn’t go past your brows or into your hairline—it’s meant for your eyes only!
- Finally, add eyeliner along the top lid (just above the crease) and on the bottom lid (or smudge shadow along both outer corners). You can also add mascara if you want more drama!

7 Makeup Tips for Night Clubs and Parties
All of us out there love clubbing. There’s something about that music flowing through your body – a great stress buster. Daytime and nighttime looks are a lot different. During the daytime, we know what works best but your day makeup can look very different and out of place under those dim lights.
So here are some tips for night makeup looks you all must know
1. No SPF
During the daytime, it’s a beauty crime to step out without SPF but during the night avoid creams and foundations with SPF. SPF can cause a whitish cast and can make your skin appear white in the low light. You don’t want to be looking like a ghost in those pictures.
2. Dip in glitter
So indulge in glitter but be careful not to go overboard with it. Dab it a little here and there.
3. Bright, bold lips
We’ve always talked about complementing your looks, evening things out between your eyes and lips. Night clubbing is not a time to go subtle on your lips. Explore a few brights and don’t be afraid. Pick those reds, pinks and plums you are afraid to try.
4. Don’t fuss over tiny details
Under the dim lights, it’s difficult to notice whether the right eye flick is on point or not. So don’t fret over it.
5. Deep eyeshadows
Keep those peaches and nudes for the daytime. Keep deep, sparkly and bright colours for the night. Imagine putting so much effort on your makeup and not getting noticed because you’ve used the wrong shades. Go for deep magenta, plums, blacks, green and blues to really make your look stand out.
6. Go matte
For the night, avoid dewy looks. In the crowd, there’ll be a lot of sweating and it can make your dewy look dew-astrous! Instead, complete your look with a matte finish powder. It can give you a clean appearance even in the dark lights.
7. Wear it with confidence
During the nighttime, the most important makeup is confidence. Wear it with oomph! Even if something on your face has gone wrong, don’t let it show, and you’ll master the nighttime makeup look with perfection.
