Centennial Ball 2017- Black Tie Makeup

Centennial Ball 2017- Black Tie Makeup

I work in an art museum, and we recently had a huge anniversary event. Because the event was black tie, I broke out a floor length gown, curled my hair, and (of course) went full glam.


I was so wrapped up in the excitement of the even that I can’t remember the details of what all I wore. However, I know that my eyeshadow was mostly the Jeffree Star Androgyny palette, with a cocktail of black liners and the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Liquid Liner in Night Sky Sparkle.


I also wore my favorite foundation for events, the MAC Studio Fix Fluid, which doesn’t seep into my smile lines (which is a rare feat for a full coverage foundation) and it wore all night long! Of course, I primed and set, but still, I danced and sweat a lot, and my foundation still looked great when I got home!


I’m also wearing MAC Crème de la Femme lipstick and Brave lipliner, which has been one of my staples for years. I paired the Anastasia Beverly Hills concealer with the L’Oreal Pro Glow concealer for a hydrated but super full coverage look.
