Masquerade parties are all about wearing avant-garde outfits matched with amazing masquerade makeup to turn heads. Remember, your masquerade party makeup is going to be the centre of attention and your makeup can make or break your entire look. However, choosing your masquerade makeup can be difficult, hence we’re here to rescue. Whether you’re creating a mask to show off your makeup skills or wearing your favourite mask, here’s how you can excel your masquerade makeup looks with ease.
Step 1: Prime well
Prepping your skin makes a huge difference in how your face makeup will sit on your face. Cleanse and moisturise your face thoroughly and then apply a primer to blur large, open pores and help your makeup glide on smoothly. Try the Maybelline Fit Me Primer to create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup and give you a radiant masquerade makeup look.
Step 2: Lay the foundation
It is essential to get your skin looking its best and create a base that won’t move as the night goes on. Dot your foundation all over your face and neck for a seamless complexion. To ensure a smooth application, dab the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation with a makeup sponge or brush instead of sweeping it across. Choosing the right shade of foundation that matches your skin tone and undertone is important. Find your perfect shade match by answering a few questions on the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool.
Step 3: Conceal the blemishes
Conceal your dark circles, acne scars, blemishes and brighten the high points of your face such as the bridge of your nose, top of your cheekbones, and the centre of your forehead with concealer. For a natural, yet snatched masquerade party makeup look, apply the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer using the facelifting technique.
Step 4: Sculpt your face
Add some definition to your masquerade makeup by contouring your cheekbones and jawline. Define your features like a pro by blending your contour well so that your face makeup doesn’t look muddy. To take your easy masquerade makeup up a notch, opt for the Maybelline V-Face Duo Contour Stick.
Step 5: Colour your cheeks
Don’t underestimate the power of blusher! Add a pop of colour to your skin with the Maybelline Fit Me Mono Blush and make your skin look fresh and healthy. Apply it well on the apples of your cheeks and level up your masquerade party makeup.
Step 6: Bring out your glow
Enhance your natural radiance and turn up the glam quotient by using a highlighter. Begin by applying it on your cheekbones in an upward motion, and then, apply it to the bridge and tip of your nose and on your cupid’s bow. Adding the Maybelline Facestudio Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter to your masquerade makeup will add a dazzling shine and glow to your skin.
Step 7: Focus on the eyes
• If you wish to draw your eye mask - Start your masquerade eye makeupby filling in sparse or uneven eyebrows with the Maybelline New York’s Define & Blend Brow Pencil. Next, use the brightest shades from the Maybelline New City Mini Eyeshadow Palette for vibrant eyes. Follow this step by using the Maybelline Colossal Bold Liner and Maybelline Colossal Kajal Super Black to draw your favourite and fancy design of masquerade eye mask. Finish off your masquerade eye makeup by applying a few coats of Maybelline Colossal Waterproof Mascara to your lashes for a long-lasting effect.
• If you’re wearing your favourite eye mask? Here’s what you can do! Kick-off your masquerade eye makeup by defining your brows. Brush them out with a spoolie and then use the Maybelline Fashion Brow Cream Pencil to fill them in. Then, use dark brown or black eyeshadow shades from the Maybelline Nudes Eyeshadow Palette to colour your eyelids. Apply the Maybelline Tattoo Studio Gel Eyeliner Pencil or Maybelline Colossal Kajal 24 Hr or both to intensify your masquerade makeup. Amp up your eye makeup with the Maybelline Lash Sensational Waterproof Mascara.
Step 8: Play up your pout
The final step to complete your masquerade party makeup is to add a splash of colour to your lips. Keep your lips soft and hydrated throughout the evening by starting your lip makeup with a lip balm. For a classic masquerade makeup look, go for a bold red or fuchsia pink lipstick from the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte range. If you are not sure about which lip shade to use with the rest of your glam masquerade makeup, use the Maybelline Lipstick Finder tool to find your ideal lip colour.
