Are you going to a concert any time soon? For example, Drake's?
I know it can be difficult trying to find makeup and outfit inspiration, so I came up with a look you can wear while jamming to your favorite artist at their concert.
For the makeup, I took inspiration from Cara Delevingne and the look she wore in this photo:
Going to a concert is the perfect time to rock a dark smokey eye, as well as a dark lip color. I mean, go bold or go home, right? I recommend you begin with the eyes first, so you can clean up any fallout before doing the face makeup.
Start off by dusting a light brown shadow into the crease as a transition shade. I used the shade "Naked 2" from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette.
Then, using a denser brush, sweep a dusty brown shadow into the crease for extra definition. I used "Faint" from the same Urban Decay Palette.
On the lid, I'm packing on "Crave", which is a matte black shadow.
Remember to blend everything out! If you have any difficulties blending out the black, use a little bit of the dusty brown shadow from before to help diffuse the harsh lines.
Now, we can't leave the lower lashline blank! Therefore, I'm going to line my waterline with the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Pencil Eyeliner in Black. A quick tip is to take that eyeliner onto the lower lashline as well to help it blend effortlessly in the next step.
To smudge out the eyeliner, I'm going to use "Faint", once again from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette.
Don't forget to highlight your brow bone and the inner corners of your eyes by using the shade "Venus".
Now, line your eyes and create a sharp wing with a black liquid liner. I'm using the one from NYC.
To finish off the eyes, apply a thin coat of mascara and pop on your favorite falsies. Today I'm using the Ardell Glamour Wispies, but if you're looking for a pair of mink lashes I highly recommend the ones from Velour Lashes.
For the face, just stick to your everyday face routine! I like to use a bit of foundation, concealer, powder, and bronzer.
Now, the lips! Because I'm going to go with a dark lippie, I'll start by lining my lips with a red lip liner. The one I'm using is by Milani in the shade "True Red".
Finally, fill in your lips with a dark red liquid lipstick, and you're finished with the makeup! I'm using the MeNow Long Lasting Lip Gloss #33. This stuff is amazing because it dries matte, stays on all day, and is less than two dollars.
As for the outfit, my best tip would be to wear something you feel comfortable in. Nothing is worst than standing all night in an outfit that restricts you from doing anything! My idea of a perfect outfit starts with a plain black crop top, denim shorts, a flannel, and a pair of black Converse.
And that's it! Call your friends and head out the door because a concert is waiting for you!
You can never have too much style
