With party season just around the corner, it’s time to start practicing how you’re going to do your makeup. Lucky for you, we present themartini makeup. Its makeup inspired by the iconic cocktail, adding touches of sparkle and lots of olive green. Here, we will tell you how to do it and the products you need to have a full-glam without much effort.
What is martini makeup?
It all started again at TikTok, where Brittney Foley, a New York makeup artist, did a tutorial that was inspired by the elegant classic drink – the martini. Now there are over 2.6 million videos of women trying to recreate this makeup look by doing it entirely in their style and customizing it to make it look incredible according to their facial features and skin tone.
Martini makeup or “Dirty Martini Makeup”, is all about channeling the sophistication and allure of a classic martini but with a hint of drama (it’s party season after all); anything else would just be a bit dry…. Key elements of this makeup trend include shimmery eyeshadows and eyeliners in shades of green and metallic, resulting in a super-hot yet classy look that is perfect for the holiday season.
To Brittney Foley, martini makeup leans into “that feminine luxurious feel and energy that you have when enjoying a dirty martini cocktail at the bar with your friends. It is a “way to accentuate and play up the eyes that result in the eyes looking more elongated and mysterious. The result? A sultry yet elegant look that’s perfect for a holiday night out.
Then focus on the eyes with shimmery eyeshadows that can catch the light. Metallic greens and gold can be combined to create a smokey effect. One of our favorite eyeshadow palettes for this look isNatasha Denona’sYucca Eyeshadow Palette, as it has matte greens and metallic gold.
We don’t know about you, but we are gathering our favorite green and shimmery makeup products as we speak, mixing up a virtual martini, and about to give this martini makeup a hard try again. So where are we going for the holidays?
