Party Hair and Makeup ideas

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
This was a requested post and so today I thought I'd show you a party makeup look you could do and potential hair ideas. The makeup look is quite a wild, colourful one but you can easily tone it down using different colours or a different lip colour.

I have used quite a lot of products but you don't have to use all of these and can easily find dupes, this is just what I used.
Products Needed:
Rimmel Primer
Fresh Minerals Powder Foundation
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer
Stila  Blush
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Colourful eyeshadow palette
Rimmel pencil eyeliner
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Liquid Eyeliner
Maybelline Colossal Mascara
Maybelline MasterShape Brow Pencil
Maybelline Colour Sensation Lipstick in 900 Hot Plum

Fructis Volume Mousse
GHD straighteners
Revlon Teasing Comb
Tresemme Hairspray

You could easily do very tight ringlet curls but for this look but I'm going to do an undo.

1. Make sure your hair is clean, dry and brushed. Then tip your head upside down and braid up the back of you hair.

2. Then secure your hair in a ponytail onto of your head. You should have a braid going up the back of your hair up to your ponytail.

3. Now you can either curl your ponytail and leave it like that or gently tease your hair with a teasing comb and secure it into a bun. Either looks great. You could also curl the edges of the bun, thats what I did and I got this look:

4. Finally spray it with hairspray and you're ready to go!

1. Prime your face and apply the fresh minerals foundation with a powder brush in circular motions. Make sure you prime your face so the foundation doesn't slip throughout the night.

2. Now apply the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer under your eyes and on any blemishes, blend in with a foundation brush or your ring finger.

3. Now take the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and apply with your powder brush to your t-zone and any other spots where you get oily. Then apply your blush to the apple of your cheeks (found by smiling).

4. Now its time for the eyes. Start by brushing a light blue colour across your eyelid. Now take a purple and apply it to the outer corner of your eye, blending it very lightly. Now take a lime green and apply it to the middle of your eyelid, still dusting it on very gently. Now take more of the original blue colour and pat it on. Add a second coat to each shadow by patting another layer on. Patting makes the eyeshadow have a more vivid colour. Then use the purple shadow as an eyeliner and dust it half way under your eye.

5. Now I take my Rimmel Scandal Eyes liquid liner and apply it to your eyelid, make the line thicker as you get towards the end, eventually winging it slightly out. Then I take my pencil liner and apply it to my waterline.

6. Now curl your lashes and apply a thick coat of mascara to  the top and bottom lashes. Then fill in your brows, making a strong arch.

7. Finally apply your lip colour and blot with a tissue. Another good way of making sure its not on your teeth is to put your finger in your mouth, any excess lipstick should come out on your finger. If you want a matte lip look. Put a tissue over your lips and dust translucent powder over the top.

I hope you enjoyed this look, you could twist it into your own thing too. If you try this out, comment a link below or send me a picture at   I'd love to see how it worked out for you.
