With the wedding season on in full swing, the dilemma that most women face is how to glam up well. Getting the perfect make-up to accentuate one’s features and outfit is of utmost importance and while many go into a hyper frenzy, others simply hit the parlour.

Just in case, you want to save yourself all the trouble, follow our cocktail party make-up ‘step-by-step’ guide. Super easy to achieve, not only is this look super sexy but also a great way to save yourself from the embarrassment of ending up with a caked-up face and clumpy eyes!

Here’s how to go about it:

1) Apply concealer under your eyes and blend it well with your fingertips to hide dark circles/eye bags.

2) Use a bronze eyeshadow and blend it across your eyelid in an upward and outward motion, into the crease of your eyelid.

3) Trace the crease of your eyelid with a black eyeshadow and then top off the area above the crease with a pink matte eye shade.

4) Now, apply light gold eye shade only to the inner corner of your eyes.

5) Once, you are done, line your upper lashline with a black eyeliner and then apply some mascara to your upper eyelashes to maximize the effect.

6) Trace your waterline with a nude coloured eyeliner/pencil.

7) Apply a little foundation on your face for a dewy effect and then finish it off with some blush on your cheekbones.
