Going from Day to Night: Makeup

We often get stuck in those situations when you're just chillin' out or you're still at work and someone says 'let's go out for a drink.. are you ready?' - err no! There are a few products that can easily take your everyday look to something a bit more evening-appropriate. These are things that you could pop into your beauty bag just in case something crops up. 

Concealer - instead of reapplying a full face of foundation I would recommend popping your favourite concealer into your bag as it helps you to achieve a more flawless look making it more evening appropriate whilst fixing up any areas that may have been compromised during the day. I carry around the Benefit Boi-ing Concealer as it's so heavy duty that it can replace my foundation in certain areas if need be without being too cake-y. 

Eyeliner is your best friend here, you can either go liquid or kohl. Liquid can give you a slick cat-eye look but with kohl you can line your waterline for a more intense look as well as lining your upper lash line and smudging it out for a bit of a 'rock chick' look if you don't have any eyeshadow handy. For liquid I'd recommend the Benefit They're Real Liner which is technically gel, but it has the convenience of liquid and gives a more crisp and precise line. For kohl you'd be safe using the Rimmel Scandaleyes Kohl Liner as it's long lasting and it's got a great formula. 

Finally, I'd recommend a good lip product. I would go for something like a darker berry shade of lipstick with some lipgloss over the top if you've got a minimal eye look goin' on. At the moment I've been loving the Bourjois 3D Effect Lipgloss in shade 03 Brun Rosé as it just adds gorgeous shine and volume to the lips on top of lipstick if you're already wearing it but still looks kissable on its own. 


You can add or take away any products that you'd like, but these are just my recommendations for a quick fix.

  3. Definitely the eye liner! I tend to darken up or thicken up the eyeliner line that I had on during the day if I end up going out afterwards! (Plus, not gonna lie, it can help hide any smudges that happened throught the day ;) )
