Isn’t it so irritating when you cannot create the perfect look that complements your outfit? Obviously, there is no second thought into it that makeup enhances your overall look. It is quite simple when it comes to creating looks that complement black and white outfits. However, things get a little messy when we go with a variety of colors in our outfits such as red, blue orange, pink, and many other bold colors. This is where the chance of making mistakes is greater.
You might not spend hours applying makeup but the part that makes you feel exhausted is making the decision of what to apply. So we are back with a promising guide to make things much smoother for you. Believe me, you only need a push otherwise you are no less than anyone with amazing knowledge of makeup art.
Stunning Formal Makeup Looks That You Can Definitely Slay
Formal Makeup For Blue Dress
When you opt for a blue dress, the next step you will take is putting on makeup. Before actually applying it, you need to figure out colors that best complement the dress. So keep in mind that colors that can create splendid contrast are coral, orange, peach, and brown. The right match for the blue can be a metallic shade. You can create a smokey eye look with a metallic or silver-like shade. Just apply it all over your eyelid and then your lash line with wing eyeliner. For a more defined look, smudge the eyeliner to perfectly give the smokey effect.
Since your eyes are smokey, keep the blush subtle. Apply light pink blush and shimmery bronzer for a lifted look. For your lips, use the same approach and apply a light pink gloss along with a lip liner.
Formal Makeup For Black Dress
When it’s black, no other color can stand in front of it no matter how much bold and vibrant it is. Especially, in the case of formal looks, it’s safer to consider nude makeup. First of all, prep your skin and apply minimal foundation to avoid a cakey finish. Now for your eyes, choose light brown and a dark brown shade from the makeup palette. Glide the lighter brown shade all over your eyelid and blend it properly with a makeup brush. Then to create a stunning Ombré effect, blend the dark brown shade on the crease. If you are applying eyeliner, black smudged eyeliner is the way to go.
Apply highlighter on the high points of your face to add a little glam and finish the process off with nude lipstick.
Formal Makeup For Navy Blue Dress
What’s the point of knowing makeup art when you can’t understand the importance of pink shade in makeup? It perfectly enhances your facial features by bringing a lovely glow. It’s completely wrong to not consider the pink makeup look as the contemporary one. There are several ways of doing it. You can create an ethereal combo with rose-gold eyes and pink lips. I just can’t get enough of this combo and can’t wait to try it out. Again, don’t forget to blend the eyeliner to avoid a sharp look.
Formal Makeup For Red Dress
Gone are the times when a red-on-red look was preferred. If you are unable to comprehend let me clarify. In older times, when there was less knowledge related to makeup people would go for the same colors in makeup as their outfit. So cutting it short, overall red makeup with a red outfit. Scary right? We are fortunate enough to be part of this era where makeup art is at its peak.
I am in love with the makeup look depicted in the image and how flawlessly this has been created. This has made me a fan of peach and bronze. Her eyes are featuring a sweet peach shade with a little glittery accent. Her cheeks are covered in peachy blush along with bronzer. If you look at her high points, they are glowing as a result of highlighter. For the lips, she used the lightest shade of glossy peach as if she had applied a lip balm only.
Formal Makeup For Burgundy Dress
I am left in awe with this subtle and natural makeup look. A huge shout out to the one who came up with the spectacular combo of boldness and elegance! If you are wearing a burgundy dress, without any stress use any light-colored shimmery Eyeshadow including brown or subtle pink. Cover your eyelid with that color and then apply eyeliner, smudge it, and at the end apply a single coat of mascara to the lashes for a much-polished look.
Use subtle pink or peach for the blush and for contouring, you can use a bronzer shade. The last step calls for glossy pink lips.
Formal Makeup For Pink Dress
When it comes to pink, girls are the smartest beings on earth to work it out for them. All the women out there, who love pink, know exactly what kind of look they have to create when wearing a pink dress and what’s the best way of accessorizing it. Pink-on-pink isn’t a bad idea if rightly done. Cover your upper eyelid, crease, and inner corner with a vibrant pink shade. Whereas, apply a metallic shade on the whole eyelid. There is a trick for a much-defined and daring look. Apply the same bright pink on the water line and then see the difference. I bet you will be astonished by the results. Light pink blush and light pink matte lipstick will brilliantly finish off the look.
Formal Makeup For Yellow Dress
If wearing yellow has left you perplexed about how to create a stunning makeup look, take a sigh of relief as we have come to the rescue. It’s never a smart play when you go with very loud makeup, instead play around with lighter tones for base, blush, eye shadows, and lipstick. Give a lighter touch of brown Eyeshadow to your overall eyelid and create a perfect contrast by applying a dark brown shade on the lash line instead of eyeliner. Contour your face with the bronzer and if you want apply a peach-colored liquid blush to add a natural flush. Here comes a twist! Go with deep red lipstick to give a bold and glamorous touch.
Today I may have convinced you that “there is to nothing impossible when it comes makeup”. When we talk about makeup, we mean creativity so why not go for these gorgeous and versatile formal makeup looks that would go with any dress? It is not easy to carry any makeup on every dress. It’s all about how you create it to be perfect. The best look ultimately depends upon your style and how you carry it. So grab the brushes and unleash your inner artist to bring on the perfect formal makeup looks to take your style to a whole new level of gorgeousness.
