How I change my make up- Day to Night

Hey Lovelies,

Today I thought I'd show you two faces of the day from the same day. If you follow me on twitter or on instagram then you may have already seen these pictures as they come courtesy of my iPhone.

To set the scene I will say this.. these pictures are from last Wednesday. That day I had to visit a school for a look around in the morning and then I was going to the theatre in the evening.

Being the lazy person that I am, I didn't want to take all my make up off half way through the day, so I attempted a look I could transform for the evening. Here is my day look...

As you can see its fairly muted and natural. I used Maxfactor 3 in 1 foundation as a base and Rimmel Stay Matte Powder to keep it in place. On the eyes, I used two shades from the MUA Undressed Palette (shades 4 and 6) using the darker shade (4) over the whole lid and the the gold shade (6) on the outer corner. On the cheeks I put a little bit of MAC MSF in Stereo Rose as a blush and then on the lips I used MAC Fanfare. 

I loved this look but I sadly don't have the time or patience to do this look for school everyday. That evening as I have already said I was going to the theatre in Wolverhampton. I went with my parents to see Yes, Prime Minister. I decided that I wasn't going to go too dressy/crazy as I was going to be in the dark for most of the time but I still wanted to make an effort. Here is what I did with my daytime make up to do that...

I kept the same base and eyes and cheeks and just added a few extras. First up I attempted to do my eyebrows. As I have said before on this blog, I hardly ever do my eyebrows because I always think I'm going to do something terribly wrong. I don't think this attempt was too bad so I'm trying. I also added a bit of brown eyeliner to the top lash line of my eye, I thought that it would give my eye a bit more umph. 

Finally I added some of one of the most amazing lipsticks out there to my lips. It is MAC Show Orchid and it is currently one of the lipsticks I am forever rocking right now. I love the pop of colour that it brings to the look and I think its a brilliant shade for Summer (by the way did you know that I'm currently giving away a Show Orchid lipstick and other goodies with another lovely blogger? Look HERE).

So that is how I can change from day to night with just a little bit of effort. What do you think? 

Till Next Time,

  1. The lip color is gorgeous! If I want to change my make-up from day to night I just apply false lashes and change my lip colour for the night, I leave everything else the same~


    1. I never wear false lashes but I definitely chance my lip colour xx

  2. I love the bright lip, it really changes the look. x

  3. I like both make ups but I think you look especially amazing with your pink lips! The color suits you perfectly! WOW!
