Face-Off: Professional Makeup vs. DIY Magic

Ladies and gentlemen, and makeup enthusiasts of all genders, prepare for a makeup showdown of epic proportions! We're diving into the glitzy world of getting your makeup done professionally versus summoning your inner makeup artist at home. From the cost to the rise of TikTok tutorials, we've got the scoop on the pros and cons.

The Cost of Glamour: Professional Makeup

Ah, the allure of professional makeup artists! Their wands wield magic that can transform you into a red carpet superstar. But beware, this enchantment comes at a price. On average, getting your makeup professionally done for an event can cost anywhere from $50 to $200 or more. It's like paying for a front-row seat to your own face transformation.

The DIY Revolution: Rise of TikTok and YouTube Tutorials

In the age of TikTok and YouTube, makeup tutorials have become a mesmerizing rabbit hole of beauty secrets. From blending techniques to eyebrow wizardry, you can find step-by-step guides for any look you desire. The rise of "how-to" videos has turned everyday folks into makeup maestros. In fact, a staggering number of people have embraced the DIY makeup trend, with statistics showing that over 70% of makeup users now prefer to do their own makeup for special occasions.

Celebrities aren't immune to the DIY allure. Hollywood icons like Zendaya, Alicia Keys, and Margot Robbie have dazzled on red carpets, proudly flaunting their self-applied makeup artistry. It's like watching a superhero don their own cape and save the day!

Current Makeup Trends for Events

As for the hottest makeup trends, think bold and daring. Glittery eyes, vibrant eyeshadows, and graphic eyeliner are stealing the spotlight. And let's not forget the power of a bold lip—red, plum, or even black can make a statement that's louder than a marching band in a library.

ColourPop is my new favorite sparkly eyeshadow, and as a Jedi, this set is the ultimate - with natural colors plus some metallics for special events! Its a hard set to find though but it is available currently on amazon! May the Beauty be with you!

Not into star wars (lame) and/or spending too much on your makeup, colourpop has single shadows available - My favorite: Colourpop natural taupe shade with glitter
