Looking for a dramatic makeup look for your next major event or a night out with your friends? Well you’re in luck. We teamed up with the Glam & Gowns Vlog and put together step by step instructions on how to achieve the perfect glam makeup look!
Step 1: Start by contouring with a stippling brush. It is best to begin with a lighter color. Then, transition into a darker color for a more natural look. Outline your forehead, cheekbones, and around the jawline. Then, blend the darker color to your liking. Don’t forget to start soft and then build up, because you don’t want your makeup to look caked on.
Step 2: Contour your nose using a detail brush. Go down each side of the nose from the brow. This will accentuate your nose shape and make it look more defined with your face.
Step 3: Apply a pink highlighter color to the highest points of your face. This helps to soften the edges of the contour.
Step 4: Apply blush along your cheekbones according to your face shape.
Step 5: Begin applying a light nude eyeshadow to your brow bone. This will give you an appropriate base for the other colors.
Step 6: Next, apply a light brown eyeshadow to your eyelids. You can make a transition shade effect by going into the crease two-thirds of the way in.
Step 7: Continue by sweeping a dark red eyeshadow into the crease.
Tip: Tap away the excess so you don’t have too much powder on the brush.
Step 8: We all know that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but second place has to go to glitter. Adding some glitter makeup or heavily pigmented shimmery eye shadow will bring your glam look to the next level! For the glittery colors, switch your brush and use the one you used for the light brown eyeshadow. Define the outer corner by applying a glittery dark brown shadow.
Step 9: Highlight the inner corner of your eye by applying a pearly peach shade.
Step 10: Next, apply a light shade to your brow bone for a shimmering effect. I like to use my finger for this step!
Step 11: Dust off any excess around the eye with a big fluffy brush.
Step 12: Don’t forget to apply winged eyeliner to tie everything together! Check out our eyeliner tutorial on the Glam & Gowns Vlog to see how to achieve the perfect winged eyeliner!
Step 13: Lastly, apply your favorite mascara and lipstick to complete the look.
And you’re done! This is a great look for homecoming, prom, or a night out with friends!
