How to Apply Makeup for a Rock Concert

So you want to go to Blessthefall or Imagine Dragons tour. You pick your clothes, plan your accessories, dye your hair perhaps, round up your buddies, and anticipate the big day. When the day comes, you don’t want to look out of place. You want to look the best you can be as a rock fan.

Applying makeup for a rock concert can seem daunting, but it’s really pretty easy. Follow these steps to achieve that dark yet glamorous look for a rock concert:

Step 1: Nurture your skin days before the concert.

This is an important rule before going to any event. If you do not do this daily, then do it 2-4 days before the concert. The better condition your skin is, the easier it is to apply makeup on. Wash your face every night, apply a good moisturizer, and use either a mask or exfoliation product. For day time you should use a sun block to avoid dark pigments.

Step 2: Go easy on the foundation.

When you apply the initial or base foundation, make sure you don’t end up looking like a geisha. Apply it moderately, making sure that it blends well with your skin tone and that it looks natural. Use a sweat-proof foundation because you know as much as I do that you will sweat.

Step 3: Apply the eyeshadow.

If you’re confident that you look good and classy with a heavy dark eyeshadow, go for it. Use dark colors such as black, brown, blue, or even purple if you’re feeling funky. One important tip: use an eyeshadow primer. This will help keep your eyeshadow looking good all night long.

Step 4: Use a lip liner.

If you’re going for a bright lip color, you definitely have to use a lip liner. This will stay in place longer than a lipstick. If you’re in a crowded area, chances are you can’t go off often to reapply your lipstick so stick with the lip liner.

Step 5: Use powder blush.

Cream blush tend to become sticky and make your face look oily, so you can just use powder blush. It will look natural on your cheeks and can give you a matte look.
