What you’ve put on during the day might not be as smashing during the night. Day makeup is all about being subtle while night makeup is about a flair for drama. We all need to kick it up a notch to be night ready. But who has the time these days? Secret is, it’s all about the right touch-up techniques. You don’t have to redo your makeup from scratch. Here are the best tips we have compiled from the makeup experts so you’ll be gorgeous from day to night!
- Clean up!
“The first step in going from day makeup to night makeup is erasing the damage to your look you’ve done throughout the day. Use blotting papers to remove any oils that may have built up over the day. Pay special attention to your T-zone, as these are the areas that tend to build up shine. Wipe away any eye makeup that may have smeared, and touch up your foundation and concealer if it’s needed.”
“Now that your old makeup is cleaned up and your face is refreshed, you can dab on extra cover-up. Wade says there is “no need to carry around an entire bottle of foundation, instead opt for an easy-to-tote emollient concealer and spot place it in the needed touch-up areas: around your nose, under your eyes, your chin and between your brows.” This will create an even, overall look “without all the fuss of foundation,” she says.”
- Choose what to emphasize.
“Your face is cleaned up, evened out and enhanced so the final step Wade says is to “decide which feature you want to emphasize, be it eyes or lips.” She recommends to “always choose one — otherwise, extreme eyes and lips are competing with each other.”
- Apply makeup on chosen parts of emphasis.
“Add color a little at a time, blend it with your brush, and then add more if needed (it’s easier to build color up than it is to take it down). Smudge black shadow along the upper and lower lash lines using an eyeliner brush; then brush two coats of black mascara on the upper and lower lashes. Voilà–a sultry look that’s all you. Lips– Balance strong eyes with a soft mouth. The most flattering shade will be slightly darker than your lips. Try hues like beige-pink or rosy brown. To make it last through the festivities, use a pencil that matches your lip color to line and completely fill lips in before applying lipstick. Skip the gloss, and let your eyes be the focal point.”
