Make-Up Moves: Day to Night

Leah Renae Make-up Artistry‘s Torrey is at it again, giving us great tips on how to easily transform our daytime look into night time fab! I’m attending a happy hour after work next Thursday and will be sure to give these tips a try! Check out Torrey’s great info below and visit her blog for even more fabulous tips!

Your Chic is Showing,

Turning your day look into a sultry night look can be achieved in just a few simple steps. You don’t have to redo your entire face to be ready for a night out on the town or happy hour after a day at the office.

The easiest way to make your look a little more sexy and night time appropriate is by using a black eyeliner to line your waterline and upper and lower lashlines. This gives a smokey effect and is great for night-time. You can build on what you’re already wearing and it only takes a couple products. Also, by adding a few coats of mascara, you’ll add volume and curl to your lashes. Or if you’re an intermediate or advanced makeup wearer, add a pair of false lashes, this will really take your look to the next level!

Another way to turn your day look to a night look is by changing up your lip color. In the office, pink, purple, or red lipstick may not be suitable, but after hours, go for it! By choosing a bright lip color, you’re adding spunk, flair, and attitude to your look. When choosing your lip color, be sure it compliments your skin tone and lip shape. You may also need to use a lip liner.

For those of you who are eyeshadow wearers, popping a dark color in your crease and “outer V” will add depth and smokiness to your look. Paired with a dark eyeliner and mascara, your eye look is now complete!

Touch up your foundation or blot your face with a blotting powder or blot paper to cast away the oilies and you’re ready to go!

For your night on the town, try using one of these techniques. If you’re really daring, try all 3 at once!

Make-Up Moves: Day to Night Look 1
In this day to night look, I chose to add an accent of color on my lower lashline by using a green eyeliner (MAC Minted). I went heavy on the eyeliner and chose a bright coral lip color (Make Up For Ever no. 39).

Here I opted for a bright lip (MAC Morange lipstick and MAC Mahogany lipliner) and just touched up everything else.
