Special Event Make Up - Help & Ideas
All I can say is- HELP! I'm going to a debutante thing on sunday and need help for make-up!!! I'm a guest, so I cannot outshine the debs. I'm wearing a knee-length black dress with a row of grey and clear sequins on the top with 4 1/2 inch black heels. What kind of make-up should I wear- I'm up for anything, any brand! Only catch is, our local store doesn't have YSL! HELP!!

you dont need ysl if you have to just go to the grocery store and get some basic black eyeliner and do a smokey eye.... or get some red lipstick and do light on the eyes and dramatic lips... you dont need expensive make up if you get in a bind and need something cool fast.....

A neutral eye with red lips is always pretty and elegant with a black dress.

I didn't mean just YSL- anything, any brand, I'm going to go for kind of a neutral eye and a medium-ish lip....

MAC Satin Taupe and Phloof eyeshadow for a light neutral eye, with a vibrant red lip...Maybe Dior's Firey Red or Urban Decay's Jezebel?

Also, for blush, Milani's Luminous is great...so much better than NARS Orgasm IMO.

If you want it cheap, get yourself the Revlon makeup compact (from the Skinlight collection). They got these compacts which are all on sale and they have in there lipgloss, light eyeshadow, blush and foundation. Amazing color combos!

Get yourself some L'Oreal Lash Out mascara too and some liquid eyeliner and you're ready!

When you really need to be memorable, dramatic, outlandish, ect, what makeup do you go with?
have you ever used non traditional supplies as makeup? for instance I once used gold leaf on my collar bones.

same here...and it doesnt have to be an ocassion..i just makeup so i always put interesting blends on...if you're looking for some you can look at the inspiring makeup thread

as for using odd things..I have used gold leaf, i've used glass beads(instead of rhinestones) even little glass mirrors and tacked it on with some eye lash glue. I've used card making paper flowers, feathers, leaves and whatnot for fantasy make-up for halloween and parties...

For drama, I usually go with a super dark smokey eye in whatever color I feel like (blues, plums, bronze etc.). or I do the Marilyn look-black liquid liner, red lips, etc. Special nights out-maybe some Mac glitter here and there.
