Recently, well last night, my sister and I went to the Bruno Mars concert. It was amazing. I’m in love with Bruno Mars and I plan to be Mrs. Mars soon.
Needless to say, the concert was packed. However I didn’t expect to be sweating so much. We had floor seats and with a lively concert like that, I’ve never cried, jumped and obviously sweat so much in my life. I promise you that.
My sister, not as big of a fan as I was also dancing, maybe not like a maniac, but she was having a ball. We were amazed that our makeup held up so well! And after a few concerts in the past month, I definitely have some lovely secrets to share with you.
First, you’re most likely going to be taking a lot of photos of you and whomever attends the concert with you, so I suggest that you don’t wear any powder on your face because it can make you look pale with a flash on. And not a nice porcelain colour.
Second, skip the foundation. I don’t wear foundation often, but I have been wearing it more frequently. A concert is not the time to have makeup smearing all over your face because you’re too hot. If you do want coverup use a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer.
Third, prime your eyes. I prime my eyes with Revlon’s eye brightener & primer, which I’m going to be doing a review on later this week. It’ll keep your concealer from creasing and your eyeliner from smudging. I always apply it under my eyes (where my dark circles are), the corners of my eyes and my eye lids.
Fourth, if you choose to wear eyeliner, I suggest a cream or gel eyeliner. Now, you may think that they are way more likely to run than a liquid eyeliner, however, if you set the gel eyeliner with black eyeshadow and a small pencil brush – it’ll stay on forever.
Fifth, make it waterproof. If it comes in waterproof, use it. I only use waterproof eyeliner ever because I hate when mascara comes off of eyelashes or it flakes. Waterproof mascara won’t flake and clump up. The best mascara I suggest is Maybellines One by One, it’s in a pink tube.
With the hot weather of the summer just starting and the many festivals and shows that are popping up, you’ll be happy that I shared these little secrets with you.
