Night Out Makeup Look

It’s always fun to play around with eye shadow colors when it comes to putting on your makeup for a fun night out! Usually, ladies love sporting smoky eye makeup—and the combinations are endless! I came up with this look and personally wore it to dinner with my friends and a few hours of clubbing. This look photographs very well and lasted me all night long. Keep in mind that you can use any eyeshadow shade as long as they’re similar; I used satin-eyeshadows to give my eyes just the right amount of glimmer.


Start off by doing your face and brow routine, I used my Luminess Airbrush System to apply my foundation (tutorial on an airbrushed face makeup coming up next)

  1. Prime your lids to ensure longevity of the eyeshadow shades
  2. Take any satin cream-colored E/S and add it as your lid base
  3. Take a blue eyeliner and apply this on the outer corners of the eyes
  4. Use a clean brush to buff the liner color out
  5. Apply blue eyeshadow over the blue liner, buff out the edges
  6. Take a purple eyeshadow and apply over the blue shade
  7. Take a glittery yellow gold pigment and apply on the inner lid area
  8. Take a highlight color and apply on the inner corners of the eyes
  9. Apply dark purple E/S on the lower lashline
  10. Darken the outer corners of the eyes using a black eyeshadow
  11. Buff harsh edges away
  12. Line your eyes
  13. Line your waterline and tightline
  14. Line the inner corners of the eyes to intensify the look
  15. Curl lashes and apply mascara
  16. Contour your face
  17. Apply blush
  18. Apply a nude lip color to finish the look
