When beauty expert and content creator Uche celebrated her birthday this September, she had so many compliments on her gorgeous party glam makeup. No wonder! Her sparkling cat eyes, contoured cheeks and ultra-hydrated lip look is party glam makeup perfection. Make it your own for the festive season with Uche’s step-by-step video and our handy guide to the products used. The top tip? Don’t miss Stay Naked Concealer for a buttery smooth under-eye.
Ready skin for makeup by smoothing on All Nighter Face Primer. The lightweight formula will improve the staying power of your face makeup, so your party glam look lasts way into the night.
Step #3 Spend time on your base
Using a brush, such as our Optical Blurring Brush blend Stay Naked Hydromaniac all over the skin. Uche applies shades 70 dark, 80 deep and 81 deep to the back of her hand and chooses 80 deep, she then adds 70 dark on top to get a perfect skin tone match.
Step #4 Contour with concealer
Apply a slightly lighter shade of Stay Naked Concealer (Uche uses shade 60 WR) under the eyes, down the sides of the nose, between the eyebrows and at the outer corner of the eyes, now blend, blend and blend! Take a tiny bit of concealer on your brush (try our Flat Optical Blurring Brush) to blend into the chin and down the centre of the nose.
Step #5 Get your blush on
Take Stay Naked Threesome in the shade Fly and use the bronzer to blend into lower cheekbones with a big brush. Then take the blush and blend into the apples of the cheeks and up high onto the cheekbones.
Step #6 Set your makeup
This crucial step will ensure your base stays perfect for up to 16 hours. Simply mist All Nighter Setting Spray over your whole face and allow to dry, Uche uses a mini fan to speed up the process.
Step #7 It's time . . . the epic eye makeup
Uche uses our Naked Half Baked Mini Eyeshadow Palette to achieve the most gorgeous party glam look. Begin with the shadow shade Buck Off and apply with a brush from the outer corner of the eye across the whole lid. Next, map out a winged liner shape taking it up towards the corner of your brow bone, then fill in with a darker eyeshadow shade like Edible and bring this onto the lid, blending at the crease. For the perfect winged eyeliner, take 24-7 Glide On Eyeliner Pencil in Perversion (black liner that won't budge) and stroke the liner onto the upper lash line pulling it out into a cat eye shape, then blend. Uche's sparkling eyes are courtesy of the shade Breadwinner, simply apply with a finger, starting in the centre of the lid and gently tapping into shape. Finish with Perversion Mascara for fluttery lashes and then maximise your soft glam party look with fluffy false lashes.
Step #8 Brows
Define brows with Brow Blade – which has a very fine point for drawing in missing hairs. Then fill and extend with Brow Beater, a soft, blendable pencil which includes a blending spoolie, Uche chooses shade Dark Drapes.
Now your makeup is on point, you can go out in a fab mood and have the best birthday (or party or festive moment). Big thanks to Uche for an easy to follow, super gorgeous party glam makeup tutorial that has all of us here at Urban Decay perfecting our winged liner and reaching for our shimmering Naked Half Baked Mini Eyeshadow Palette.
