Minimal Evening Glamour Makeup

In the realm of makeup classics, the winged eyeliner and red lip combination is one of the oldest, most popular looks. It’s a simple yet sophisticated makeup style that can be adapted for almost any occasion. For today’s look, I decided to create an evening makeup using the classic combo. My main goal was to keep the number of products used to a minimum, and to focus on adding a glow to the skin in order to compliment the black liner and red lip.

The essentials:
I have been loving the primer in the E.L.F. Eye Primer & Liner Sealer to unify the colour of my eyelids, which I set using the E.L.F. HD Undereye Setting Powder (’cause rules are meant to be broken).

Although the main protagonist for the eyes was the Kiko Lasting Gel Liner, I did use Colourpop’s SuperShock Shadow in Cornelious to define the crease and add some warmth. For my lips I wanted an orange-red since it’s summer (kind of, not really in Berlin). I used the Colourpop Lippie Pencil in Clique and topped it off with their Ultra Satin Lip in Cozy.

For a more sophisticated finish, I decided to spend a little more time on my base, correcting, concealing and contouring. I used the Catrice Allaround Contouring Palette for the first time for this look and was quite satisfied with the result. I wrote full review about this palette here.

Apart from the inner corners of my eyes and my cupid’s bow, which I highlighted using The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer, I use the shimmery shade in the Catrice palette. I also used The Balm’s Cindy-Lou Manizer as a light blusher. I thought this look could have used some false lashes for a more dramatic effect, but I didn’t have any so I tried my best with the Maybelline’s Volum’ Express The Rocket Mascara.

My favourite thing about this look is that it can suit absolutely anyone, and although it is very minimal, it also looks like it took a lot of work. Not to forget, it goes with almost any outfit or style! I hope you enjoyed this post and found some inspiration to recreate your own!
