RAVE MAKEUP INSPIRATION

POST + PHOTOGRAPHY BY AMY NADINE, GRAPHIC DESIGN BY EUNICE CHUN

Raves are getting more and more popular and are the perfect time to go neon! You let go of inhibitions when you go underground, so why not do the same with your makeup? Typically, pastel pink shadow borders on sickly, but paired with a neon pink liner and anchored with a black wing and it’s not only wearable but quite pretty!! Here’s how:

TOOLS:

STEPS:

  1. Apply the pastel pink shadow all over the lid and crease with a shadow brush.
  2. Line the upper lid with the neon pink pencil and wing it out and up. Go a little thick with this one so there’s room for the black liner.
  3. Trace the lashline with the black liquid liner and wing it out and up, following the neon pink line.
  4. Finish with a couple coats of mascara.

Pair it with a fuchsia lip. And remember, this look is created specifically for raves and clubbing… not intended for every day!

 

QUICK TIP: NUDE LIPSTICK

If you’re doing a pinky nude or a peachy nude lip, you don’t need this. But if you’re doing a true nude lip, please take my advice and try this little trick! A nude lip is a gorgeous look that allows all of the focus to go to the eyes and I encourage everyone to own a nude lipstick and bring it out often. But there’s a fine line that separates pretty and well, how do I say it, dead! So bring your nude lip to life in a way that no one will even know you did anything! Here’s how: (more…)

WHAT A DOLL

A few days ago we posted THIS sweet viddy of the beauty party we threw our favorite littles! So last but not least, we wanted to give you something you can print if you’re planning one throwing one, too. Above you’ll find 3 fun hairstyles and below you’ll find tutorials with instructions below each set of images. We used Barbie® Color Chalk Hair Doll in all 3 of these…

  1. Brush out any tangles in your doll’s hair.
  2. Use the chalk as instructed to color each section. We did a blue section, a pink section and then mixed blue and pink to make a purple section.
  3. Do a regular 3-strand braid on your doll. Tie it off with the small clear elastics that come in the box.

  1. Brush out any tangles in your doll’s hair.
  2. Put the hair in a high ponytail using the small elastic ponytail holders that come in the box.
  3. Chalk the ends of the doll’s hair. We alternated and mixed the colors.
  4. Take a strand of hair and wrap it around the elastic ponytail holder.
  5. Clip it underneath using the various shaped plastic hair clips that come in the box. Here we used the star shape one.

  1. Brush out any tangles in your doll’s hair.
  2. Take one strand from the doll’s right side and use the pink chalk to color it.
  3. Take one strand from the doll’s left side and use the blue chalk to color it.
  4. Join the pieces together in the back of your doll’s head. Tie it off with one of the small elastics that come in the box.
  5. Now flip the ponytail up and over. Loop it through (topsy turvy style).

If you haven’t seen the pretty little movie we made, you can check it out HERE. If you know how to braid, make ponytails or use temporary hair chalk, teach a girl how to use it! Many of us learned these types of things at a young age and turn it into a career later in life. xo
