Look: From Day To Night

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Since my classes are moved to every Saturdays and starts at *holds breath* 7:00 A.M., I have no choice but to be in school with an easy-to-do yet rockin' look. I'll be staying in school until 4:00 P.M. which means I only have a little to no time left to re-do my make-up in case I'll be heading out to a weekend gimmick. The only solution I know is to make my day look last up to nighttime and enhance it a little to be appropriate for those partying at night! 

This is one make-up look that I know will surely look awesome from day to night. I played around with different purples because it looks good during the day (be sure that it's subtle) and it transforms the eyes into a sexy pair at night.

*The photos were taken under a gloomy weather, hence, the crappy lighting and the unnoticeable colors. Please bear with me as I am still finding ways to improve this.

1. Cleanse, tone, and moisturize the face. Be sure to apply sunblock prior to foundation. Sunblock is a must in school. You'll be staying whole day in a class where you could be exposed to the sun and/or room lighting. Sun and lights contain UV rays that are harmful to the skin.
2.  Apply BB cream or foundation all over the face. I chose BB cream over foundation because it has a lighter weight and more natural looking. 
3. Conceal. Since BB cream has a light coverage, concealing is an important step. This will also make your face look much awake. 
4. Redefine eyebrows. DO NOT make it look too drawn!
5. Prime the lids. Blend. This will ensure that the eye make-up will last long.

6. Apply a wash of peach eyeshadow all over the lid. You may use a shade similar to your skintone.
7. Apply a purple eyeshadow on the lower part of the lid. Blend. You may use other shades, I just felt like playing with purples!
8. Apply the same purple eyeshadow on the outer half of the lower lashline.

9. Line the eyes with a brown eyeliner. Stay close to the lash line. Brown eyeliner is less dramatic and more natural looking than black (I know, my eyeliner did not show up in pictures).

 10. Line the waterline with a white eyeliner. This will make the eyes look brighter and awake.

11. Highlight browbones and inner tearducts. Bring the color on the inner half of the lower lashline.

12. Curl lashes and apply one coat of mascara. Say 'hello' to that clumped mascara! Haha! :)

13. Apply a natural-looking blush and a pale pink lipstick. YOU'RE DONE on your DAY look!

To bring the entire day look to a night-of-partying look, the key is to intensify the colors. If you want, you can always go for a sexy and dramatic make-up look.

1. Intensify the eyebrows. The lights will wash off the color of the eyebrows so make sure you darken it a bit.
2. Apply a shimmery purple eyeshadow on the inner 1/3 of the lids.

3. Pat on a medium purple on the middle portion and the darkest purple (that you have) on the outermost part. Blend!

4. To intensify the look even more, apply a black eyeshadow on the crease area. Bring the same black eyeshadow on the lower lashline. For eyes like mine, make sure to check if the eyeshadows are seen even with the eyes open. If not, you can always bring the color higher.

5. Line the eyes with a black gel liner. Highlight browbones and inner tearducts.

6. Line the waterline with a black liner. Apply false lashes. False lashes are optional. You may just curl lashes and apply a generous coat of mascara.

7. Apply foundation and conceal imperfections. No pictures, sorry!
8. Apply your favorite blush and lipstick. I chose a peach-pink blush and a nude pink lipstick. YOU'RE DONE on your NIGHT look!

Be beautiful in whatever time of the day!

Look fresh during the day, and sexy at night! :)
