Evening Makeup Tips
By Christine Dion
Special occasions call for more glamour and glitz. True elegance comes from pulling a look together from head to toe. Whether your look is sweet or sultry you want to shine when you enter the room and these beauty tips will make sure you put a twinkle in the eye of all who gaze upon you .
BROWS– Be sure your brows are defined, arched and extended correctly. Brows draw the focus to your eyes and create a lovely balance to your facial features. Learn how to do perfect brows here.
FLAWLESS FACE & BODY– Be sure to cover facial imperfection with foundation, concealer and powder. If you are showing lots of skin a self- tanner can help to even out skin tone as well as be very slimming. If you do choose to tan be sure to deepen your facial powder one shade darker to help your face match your body. Face powder is sheer and looks more natural to deepen skin tones than foundation.

SHIMMER, SHINE & GLITZ– All special occasions need a little more glam especially if you are wearing a dramatic dress. Exposed skin especially on the chest and shoulders, back and exposed legs can benefit from shimmer and glitter. For subtle shimmer use Mode Dion Shimmer Pot mixed in with your favorite body lotion or oil and rubbed into key light catching areas. Choose Moongold color for golden skin-tones and Stardust for very fair skin tones.
For eye catching beautiful glitz use Mode Dion’s Cosmic Spray not only onto the body but onto your hair as well to catch the lights and shine!
Define and slim your figure by applying shimmer or glitter down the fronts your legs and from your shoulders down the front of you arms. Create a fuller bust by applying shimmer or glitter on the roundest part of your chest.
Your lips need to sparkle and shine. Be sure to add a shimmer gloss at the center of the upper and lower lip for extra twinkle try Mode Dion Lip Sparkle
SWEET & ELEGANT MAKEUP– Try pinks or peaches on cheeks and lips. These photograph nicely. For neutral versatile colors see Mode Dion’s Mineral Cheek color in Hush, Lip liners in Deep Natural (pink/beige) or Natural (peach/beige) and Hush lipstick for a soft pink/peach shine. Eyes can look sweet by using your stage eye shadow the 5- Color Pro Pallet in Burgundy Define 2 through crease and Highlight onto lids and under brow. Don’t forget your Shimmer Pot in the inner eye corner, brow arch and center of lid for evening glimmer.
SULTRY MAKEUP FOR MORE DRAMA
When you want to create a sultry dramatic makeup looks don’t be afraid to use black eye shadow. Mode Dion’s Pro Pallet Eye Shadow had the perfect black shade and is great for defining outer corners of the eyes and a staple color for makeup artists, black is neutral and can compliment any evening gown or dress perfectly. Black shadow used wet as a cake liner creates a softer more smokey look to the eye and stays on much better than black eye pencil. My model to the left is wearing Mode Dion products in the 5- color Pro Pallet. which looks elegant for evening even when applied bold because they are matte. Shimmer Pot on brow arch, inner eye corner and center of lid for more glitz. Cheeks flushed softly in Stage Red, lips in Natural lip liner and lipstick in Rhubarb with Sparkle Gloss at the center of lips. False lashes cut into thirds look more natural and add an extra lash layer for a more dramatic eye.
