PARTY ON WITH LONG LASTING MAKE- UP!
Ken Boylan will be here to show us great party make-up for 3 different skin types with tips to ensure that it lasts through the night!
Ken concentrates on making our model's foundation last through the night. He uses a really effective primer from MAC. He then sets her foundation with loose powder.
According to Ken there are two main reasons why foundation isn't long lasting:
. Over moisturising/ not allowing moisturiser to dry into skin before applying foundation
. Not setting the foundation with a loose powder.
Mac Primer - €20 - available Brown Thomas
Armani Loose Powder - available Brown Thomas
Ken recommends investing in this palette from Pout which contains 2 eye shadows, 2 blushers and 2 lips - pop it in your bag on your way out the door for easy make-up touch ups throughout the evening!
Pout Palette - €32 - available Brown Thomas
Ken focuses on the eye make-up is here, and makes sure it's long-lasting. Concealer is great for this - not only does it cover dark circles and blemishes but it improves your eye shadow's adherence to skin.
Smudging eye pencil all over the lid (either with fingers or a sponge applicator) also does wonders for the staying-power of you eye-shadow.
Stila Concealer - €23 - available in department stores
Mac Powerpoint Pencil - €17.55 - available Brown Thomas
Stila Pink Shimmer - €15 - available in department stores
Ken focuses on long-lasting lip colour on our model. He recommends using a lip pencil as a base on the lips, colouring them completely with the pencil (to avoid that horrible no-lip-look caused by just outlining the lips). Then apply gloss for a glamorous party look.
Bourjois Lip Pencil - €7.50 - available pharmacies nationwide
L'Oreal Glamshine for Lips - €7.50 - available pharmacies nationwide
The Lancome Juicy Duo is also a really handy item to have in your going-out bag; it's both a lipstick and gloss in one for maximum colour and gloss to last throughout the evening!
