Three simple steps to transform your day makeup to evening makeup. Makeup trends are showing lots of bold lip colours with nude eye palettes, winged cat eyes as well as the everlasting smokey eye with a nude lip. As a professional makeup artist, quick transformations are key for clients with time constraints. To transform your day look into an evening look try these three simple steps.
- Brighten up the lips – Lipstick is the easiest way to lift your look. Using a deep bold red can immediately brighten up your look in one move. Current makeup trends are leaning towards orange lips or deep dark reds. We like the matte buttered rum lip stick from Avon. Choose a matte colour for impact.To prevent bleeding or uneven application, use a nude lip liner to neaten up the lips when applying a bold colour. We like the MAC etcetera lip liner. A tip to make lip colour last is to line the lips with a nude colour and gently fill in the lips with the liner before applying your favorite lippy.
- Darken the eyes – Creating a darker more pronounced eye can transform your day look to evening with little effort. Opt for a long lasting liquid liner and create a cat eye. We like the smudge proof aqua liquid liner range from Makeup Forever. For a slight change, turn your single line of day liner into an evening look by adding additional length and two wings for a double winged cat eye. Another option is to use a dark pencil eyeliner and smudge along the lash line for a smokey effect. Opt for dark mauve colours or dark brown to avoid the ever dreaded panda eye. We like the Smashbox studio pop colours in imperial and bronze citrine. Avoid having to add more mascara over the day mascara as this could end up looking clumped and messy.
- Brighten the cheeks – If you don’t have a blusher handy, you can double your lipstick as a cream blusher. Dab a few dots of lipstick along the cheek bone and blend with your ring finger. Not only will your cheeks match your lips, you will instantly achieve a dewy refreshed look with little effort transforming you from day to night makeup.
