When dancing at a party on a hot summer night, the last thing you want is melted foundation running down your face and mascara pouring down your eyes. I have put together a great summer night out makeup tutorial that will not only prevent run off, but includes an excellent smokey eye shadow look!

Summer Night Out Makeup Tutorial

Step 1: First things first, you want to apply a moisturizer and a primer before you start your face makeup. First apply a BB cream. I’m going to be mixing a Clinique BB cream and a Maybelline BB cream. I’m using a Stippling Brush to even out my complexion.

Step 2: Next, you need to conceal any imperfections. Conceal your dark under-eye circles and any acne scarring. I’m using my Maybelline Fit Me concealer and my Maybelline Under Age Concealer.

Step 3: Set all of your face makeup with a powder to give you a matte finish and to prevent any oily look. I;m using my Neutrogena powder.

Step 4: To start off the eyes, first prime them. I’m going to be using my Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Step 5: I’m taking “Limit” from my Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette and using a flat shader brush to apply it to my eye lid.

Step 6: Now, I’m taking “Nooner” from the same palette and applying it to my crease with a fluffy blending brush.

Step 7: Next, fill in your eye brows. I’m using a brow gel/powder by e.l.f. and I’m filling in sparse areas.

Step 8: Now, I’m going to curl my eyelashes and apply Benefit’s “They’re Real” mascara.

Step 9: Next apply a black eye liner on your tightline and a brown eye liner on your water line.

Step 10: Now, finish off your eye look with liquid eye liner. I’m using liquid liner from e.l.f. and winging it out.

Step 15: Lastly, finish off your look with a highlighter, a blush, and a lip gloss.
