Day to Night Makeup

So, apparently I've been doing it all wrong. Nighttime makeup that is. This is the type of thing you learn when you work at a hair salon. You see, there's not much variation in my day time makeup verses my nighttime makeup. Maybe a little bit thicker liner, but hey I'm a simple girl. It doesn't take much to please me.

But you know what? I love a good smokey eye just as much as the next girl. And although, it's not something I would wear during the day. I can rock that look at night like no other.

Here are some tips that I have picked up about day verses night makeup:

  • Keep it simple. That doesn't mean no makeup, but less is more during the day.
  • Only do baby wings on your winged-out liner.
  • Don't forget your bronzer!
  • Shimmery eyeshadows are a great way to still have fun with your makeup during the daytime.
  • Stick to lighter, earthier tones.

  • This is when you can be as dramatic as you want. Do a smokey eye, put on that red lipstick. Just have fun!
  • This is when your matte eyeshadows come in handy.
  • For blush, stick to pinker colors.
  •  Jewel tones make great nighttime eyeshadows.
