Keep your party skin glowing all night long
If you're planning a big night out dancing, singing or partying your socks off, these tips and tricks will keep your skin looking beautiful until the wee hours.
The idea is to cleanse thoroughly before applying your make-up, so your complexion stays perfect for as long. Kick-off the process the day before, by drinking lots of non-alcoholic fluids. Drink plenty of water, tea, herbal or fruit infusions, and hydrate your skin with a suitable moisturizer. Before going to bed, apply a moisturizing mask with active ingredients that will deeply penetrate the skin. You can try the new L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence that penetrates up to 10 layers deep into your skin to give you a bright and clear complexion. This Micro-essence contains Salicylic Acid which accelerates skin renewal & mildly exfoliates to refine pores & skin texture. It has a watery texture that easily absorbs in your skin and hydrates it from within. And on the big day itself, start with a very light scrub; that exfoilates your skin and makes it glow naturally. Apply an eye contour product to reduce puffy eyelids and bags, leaving you looking wide-eyed and fresh-faced.
Prepare The Base
Begin with a moisturizer to plump up the skin and boost circulation for a natural rosy look. Apply a make-up base (firming, if necessary) that will set your make-up, smooth out pores and eliminate signs of tiredness. A corrective base or primer will even out your skin tone: try a purple tint if your complexion is dull, or green if you need to reduce redness. Now you're ready for foundation. You only need a small amount: the more you blend it in, the longer it will last. Make sure your foundation matches the colour of your neck; and your cleavage. And for a lasting effect, opt for a mattifying or high-definition product.
Apply The Right Make-up
To brighten the skin, apply an illuminator under the eyebrows, on the cheekbones, to the bridge of the nose and just above the chin. You can even gently shade under the cheekbones to highlight your bone structure. Top it off with a touch of blusher on the apples of the cheeks. Set your make-up by evenly applying a light coat of powder. And here's a pro tip: mist your face, holding the spray 50cm away, to firmly fix your make-up.
Pair your glowing skin with an elegant shiny dress and make all head turns in your party all night long.
