We will now learn about the most popular types of face makeup looks for various occasions to ensure you’re always ‘Camera-Ready’ and ‘Stunning’.
Popular Face Makeup Styles to choose from:
- Natural Makeup
The natural makeup or nude makeup style is the perfect option for those who just want slight enhancements in their look as well as for casual everyday looks. It is inspired by the quest to look like you’re not wearing any makeup. Rather than severely transforming the way you look, the natural makeup style involves simple changes in the way your skin, eyes, nose and mouth look on their own. The shades of makeup are highly similar to the ones that already exist on the face. A lot of women turn to natural makeup as it concentrates on the features that already exist on the face and enhances them to perfection. To get your natural makeup right, there are certain things you should always keep in mind.
The natural or nude makeup look consists of luscious lips and fluttery eyes, rather than smoky eyesand heavy foundation. However, if you can’t do without a foundation, you can apply a light foundation which matches exactly with your skin tone.
You need to know very well which colors will suit your skin tone. Those who have a pale skin tone should go for lighter shades like peach and pink. Those who have a warm skin tone should go for darker shades like bronze and brown.
Nude lips can be painted with slightly tainted lip balm or lip gloss. Do not forget to exfoliate your lips before application for best results.
Use a good under eye concealer to camouflage those under eye dark circles and other blemishes on the face. Make sure you choose the right shade that matches your skin tone and blends well.
The main focus of natural makeup is the eyes. So choose good-quality volumizing mascara and curl your eyelashes to make your eyes pop.
If you focus on the eye makeup more, then be subtle on the lips and vice versa.
Choose eye shadow and blush of the same color as your skin tone. Though, it may be a shade or two darker.
Always cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin so as to make your skin look radiant with a natural glow.
- Party Makeup
The party makeup look becomes essential when you are attending a huge party and want to make a style statement. With a hint of color on your eyes, cheeks and lips, you are sure to make heads turn. Your makeup is as important as the outfit you select to wear. Whatever you choose to wear for the party, make sure that your makeup color complements the color of the outfit. The main purpose of doing party makeup is not just to look pretty but also to stand out in the crowd. Therefore, you need to experiment with makeup and make it bold and sexy. Here are some makeup tips to get the best possible look to rock the party.
Don’t use a foundation with a liquid base in case you are going to dance at the party. The sweat could make your makeup drip over time. It is advisable to dab on some face powder to keep makeup intact.
Also use a good under eye concealer to camouflage those under eye dark circles and other blemishes on the face.

- Bridal Makeup
The Bridal Face Makeup is necessary to give the perfect glow on your face to match your big day. Whether you are the bride or a bridesmaid, looking your best is essential. The Wedding Day comes once in a lifetime and you wouldn’t want to miss out on the chance to steal the show. Though it depends whether you want a subtle, natural look or a bold, sexy look. The main points to inspire you to select the right bridal Face makeup are:
Airbrush your makeup. In this technique, makeup is sprayed onto the skin through an airbrush rather than being applied with sponges, brushes or fingers. Airbrushing is great for weddings because it produces an even foundation to build on and it gives a flawless appearance to the skin.
Eye makeup should look bold and sexy. Use dark eyeliner to make your eyes pop out. However, do not apply too much eyeliner lest you may not look much like a bride.
When it comes to eye shadow, you can either work with a natural color that will bring out the features of your face, or you can work with something that fits the colors of the wedding.
It is advisable to line your lips before you fill in lipstick. This will help define your lips as well as keep the lipstick in place. You can use any color which would go well with the overall Face makeup. However, lipstick in dark, shimmering shades are more preferable.

The Bronze Makeup style is a perfect choice for summer or to give you an authentic sun-kissed glow during winter. This classic makeup trend will always be in vogue as it gives a radiant look. Whether you have a pale skin tone or a slightly warm skin tone, the bronze look is about using neutral shades. However, colors like gold, copper, beige and bronze are used to contour and flatter the face. You need to keep the below points in mind whenever you are going in for the bronze look.
Choose a foundation that’s two shades darker than your complexion. Match your foundation with your arms as they are slightly darker than the face. A darker foundation helps to balance your complexion before applying the bronzer.

- Gothic Makeup
The Gothic Makeup style is usually dark and mysterious and may not be the right option for everyone. It is the most extreme style of makeup you could come across. This is usually full of dark eye shadows, eye liners, lipsticks, etc; all that pairs well with the dark colored clothing gothic people tend to wear. If you think you have the personality to pull off such a look, go ahead and unleash the ‘Goth Girl’ in you. Here are some points to keep in mind when you wanna go with gothic makeup.
This makeup style mainly focuses on paler complexions. The whiter you are, the better off you will be. Do remember to use a good face foundation that will give you an even skin tone.
The eye makeup is an important aspect of gothic styling. It is advisable to use black or dark colored eye shadow. Using dark black eye liner, emphasize the eyes by drawing cat eye lines or crescent lines on the outer eyes. Don’t forget to curl your eyelashes and apply ample mascara.
The Gothic look is for those who want to express themselves in a bold manner. Hence, you should choose eye color or lip color that reflects your personality. Goths don’t follow other people’s makeup ideas or latest trends; they create their own personal style statement.
The most commonly used colors for gothic makeup are grey, black, blood red and deep blue. Do not mix pretty nails with Gothic; avoid pink nails and French manicures.
The face, eyes, lips, nails, hair and clothing must all work harmoniously; to create the faultless ‘Bloodletting Image’ Goths are famous for.
- Permanent Makeup
Permanent makeup is also called cosmetic tattooing. In the past, it was a technique mostly used by models and actresses who wanted to lessen the number of hours they spend sitting on the makeup chair. But now, more and more women are willing to go in for permanent makeup to save time and effort.
The process of applying permanent Face makeup is the same as with any tattoo. It involves penetrating the skin over and over again with a needle, while pigment or dye is released into the hole. The needle used in this process should be sterilized properly. Make sure that you go to a licensed tattoo artist before taking the plunge. You also need to get a skin patch test done to see if you are allergic to the pigment and then you can choose the colors you want.
Permanent Face makeup is done to improvise specific facial features like lips, eyes and eyebrows. Repeated tweezing of eyebrows can make it difficult for them to grow back naturally; with cosmetic tattooing it’s possible to put them in place without any hassles. It is the perfect option for those with sparse or no eyebrows. Another area of the face that you could try permanent makeup on is your lips. Lip tattooing can help define the lip line and eliminate the possibility of lipstick wearing off repeatedly. This will eliminate the need to keep reapplying lipstick. However, make sure that you choose the right shade of lipstick to match your skin tone and personal taste as you may have problems removing it in case you wanna change the color later. Eyeliner tattoos are another hot makeup trend which ensures that you will never again need to use an eyeliner pencil.
Once you have your permanent Face makeup in place, you can adjust it as per the occasion and your needs. The permanent coloring acts as a primer for the rest of your makeup. For example, if you already have a line of dark eyeliner above your eye, you can go for a dramatic look by applying black mascara and dark eye shadow on the crease of the eyelids.
Now that you have learnt about the most popular face Face makeup styles, you need to be prudent to choose one style based on the occasion or event, the outfit being worn as well as your own mood for the day. Though these are just the basic styles, you can improvise on the makeup techniques as you continue to master the art of applying makeup. It is also advisable to take cues from various celebrities to be up-to-date with the latest trends. Most celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus add a signature style to their makeup which sets them apart from the rest of Hollywood.
