6. DO invest in a polished, but funky make up look.
You should know at least one night look, and preferably it’s a smoky eye. If you look hard enough, you may find some inexpensive products that can make your face look like a million bucks. But a great lip gloss by NARS or MAC Lipglass is worth investing in, even if you only put on face for special occasions. You shouldn’t have to worry about touching up your makeup every five minutes or have to carry an arsenal of cosmetics to do so. You may want to be a bit heavy handed to achieve a look that stands out beneath the dim lights, but you shouldn’t need a chisel to remove your makeup at the evening’s end. Primer, waterproof mascara and a powder compact can help your makeup survive sweat, tears and the random thrown daquiri.
