Rave parties are often all night parties where partiers dance to fast music under spectacular light shows. DJs and live artists play mixes of different types of music like house and techno. Rave party outfits should be trendy but comfortable. Colors for makeup and clothing are vibrant and bright. Since fluorescent lighting is often used, wear makeup that glows in the dark. Wear rave makeup that sets you apart from the crowd. Use our rave party makeup ideas to look your best on your night out.
Select a makeup foundation that will hold your makeup in place. A sheer powder is fine if it adequately evens out your skin tone. Mineral powder foundations work best because they stay in place and protect your skin from air pollutants like smoke or artificial fog.
Eye Makeup Tips
Rave makeup should bright and colorful. Apply an eye primer to your eyelids. This keeps makeup from shifting around when you sweat. After applying primer, allow it to add a bright gold or chrome liquid eye shadow to the entire eyelid. Also, add the eye shadow under your eye for an ultra sleek look. Use an eye shadow brush when applying your eye makeup. Put bright blue, pink or red in the eye crease liberally. Blend it with the lighter color by swirling your eye shadow brush in a small circular motion. Apply waterproof liquid eyeliner to the upper and lower lashes. Start on the inner eye and draw outward, extending the liner a little bit. Do the same for the bottom. Use colored liner for a bit of fun.
Skip the mascara and try wearing false eyelashes with neon tips. Even medium length lashes can give your rave makeup a more exotic look. If you choose mascara, wear it in layers. Apply mascara to the tips of your lashes with your mascara tip. Then turn the wand sideways and fluff up lashes. Allow the mascara to dry a minute, and then apply a second layer. Waterproof mascara will stay in place longer, even after hours of dancing.
Wear bold lipstick to your rave party. Try coral and orange lipstick colors. Metallic lip colors like gold, silver and platinum are shimmering reds are excellent for a rave makeup look.
No rave makeup look is complete without some glitter. Apply some glittery powder to your forehead, cheeks and décolletage. Use a glittery body lotion to apply glitter to your arms, legs and neck.
Try different colors and types of makeup to get the best look for you.
