4. Simple birthday party makeup
If you’re not a huge fan of applying too much makeup, this makeup idea can be a good option for you. With just three products you can enhance your appearance and get birthday ready.
Step 1: Start this simple birthday makeup look by using some blush on your cheeks. Using blush makes your skin pop and is a great way to look presentable. If you don’t have a blush, you can use your creamy lipstick and add some colour to your skin.
Step 2: Next, line your waterline with some kajal. This will add some definition to your eyes.
Step 3: As the last step, use a lip colour of your choice. You can even opt for tinted lip balm if you want something more natural-looking.
5. Glowing goddess birthday makeup
A glowing-goddess look is a classic choice for a birthday makeup look. This look is super versatile as you can wear it in the daytime and make it more glam for the night.
Step 1: Start by prepping your face with some primer. Apply a stick highlighter under your foundation for that extra touch of glow.
Step 2: Continue with your face makeup as usual, i.e., create the base by using primer, foundation, and concealer.
Step 3: Before setting your face apply some stick highlighter with your fingers to the high points of your face. Make sure your highlighter melts into your skin. Set your face lightly with loose powder and apply some powder highlighter to complete the look.
Step 4: For your eyes, keep it neutral and add a shimmery eyeshadow for some pop. Apply some mascara and lipstick to complete the birthday party makeup look.
