Cocktail Makeup

Are you heading to an important event or a date? Then you need to ensure you have great makeup. If you don't want to settle for light daytime makeup but find evening makeup too intense, we recommend going for cocktail makeup. The makeup artists at our beauty salon are well-versed in all the intricacies of this style of makeup. We will help you choose the perfect makeup that will turn you into the queen of the evening.

Secrets of Cocktail Makeup

To visualize a cocktail makeup look, we recommend familiarizing yourself with the rules of this type of makeup:

  • Well-groomed skin: This is the primary principle. If there are imperfections, they are corrected with special products. The result is an even skin tone, which serves as an excellent foundation for cosmetics.
  • Beautiful brows: Brows can make your gaze open or melancholic, dynamic or aristocratic. They have a significant impact. In cocktail makeup, brows are emphasized with special gels, pencils, and eyeshadows.
  • Subtlety: Cocktail makeup shouldn't be overly bold. However, it should possess allure and naturalness. When creating this makeup, it's essential to not only follow current trends but also consider individual characteristics such as hair and skin color to accentuate beauty and minimize imperfections.
  • Focus on eyes or lips: Choose one or the other. For a cocktail party, you can accentuate your eyes with eyeliner, eyeshadows, and mascara, while opting for understated lip shades. Alternatively, you can go for vibrant lips and keep the eyes more natural.

In general, cocktail makeup is slightly more expressive than daytime makeup but less dramatic than evening makeup.

Application Technique

Creating cocktail makeup isn't as simple as applying makeup products. It requires thorough facial preparation. Our beauty salon makeup artists generally follow these steps:

  1. Consultation: We will help you determine your color type and choose the best focus (on eyes or lips) based on your outfit and overall look.
  2. Facial skin preparation: Your skin needs to be cleansed with special toners and cleansers. Moisturizing is essential, with particular attention given to the areas around the eyes. Proper hydration ensures that any applied products stay in place and look good.
  3. Applying a base: A makeup base is applied either all over or in areas prone to oiliness, such as the forehead, nose, and chin.
  4. Using decorative cosmetics: This includes foundation, concealer, highlighter, eyeshadows, lipstick, and more. We use high-quality products from renowned brands.
  5. Fixation: To ensure your makeup stays in place throughout the evening, we use special fixing products.

On average, the procedure takes 40-50 minutes. During this time, the makeup artists at PIED-DE-POULE Salon will make your look flawless. Rest assured, you will impress everyone with your stunning cocktail makeup.

To make sure everything goes smoothly, we recommend contacting the salon's administrator in advance and scheduling your appointment three to four hours before your planned departure. You can use the contact form, the salon's direct phone number, or reach out through any of our social media messengers. We are available through all communication channels.
