Day to night looks #1: the berry lip

In a rush to get ready for a night out? I’m going to be doing one post a month for the next couple of months easy ‘day to night looks’. This month is going to be a subtle glowy skin look, with a pinky eye and a berry lip. With slight tweeks from the day look, it’s easily achievable if you don’t have long to get ready in the evening!

Starting with the base, you want the makeup to last a long time so I’ll use a recent favourite primer of mine – the Body Shop insta blur. Then a long lasting foundation and I shall pick the Rimmel lasting finish 25hr foundation: this stuff has a great lasting power so you wouldn’t have to reapply this in the evening. Whilst I wouldn’t feel like this foundation needs a powder for the day, I would put some on in the evening just to mattify the face slightly (without the horrible cakey look). For cheeks I’m keeping the look fairly simple, just a dusting of an old favourite Benefit’s Hoola Bronzer and to highlight ill use to left side of my new (and very gorgeous) Nars dual intensity blush in Frenzy. I’ll dust this on my cheekbones, top of my nose, and places where the light catches my skin for a natural bronzy/highlighted glow.

In the day, eyes are going to be more of the standout with this look. I want to make this a very pink eye to contrast to the berry shade I’ll apply in the evening, but I’m wearing a natural pink lipstick in the day so I want this eye to standout whilst still being subtle. To achieve this I take my Naked 3 palette and put limit all over the lid, with nooner in the crease and liar in the outer v. I’ll blend these seamlessly and put strange in the inner corner and the brow bone – my eye look is done! If I do have time I’ll go over the eye look in the evening but if not the eyeshadows do last all day if you have a good primer. A coating of the Maybelline lash sensational and my eyes are complete. Ready both for the day but also put together enough for the evening as well.

This is the part ill change for the day and night. Whilst I love berry shades I don’t really feel confident enough to wear them in public (especially out in the day) so I love wearing them for evening looks. Seeing as summer seems to have officially left I thought it would be fitting to include the Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107 in a blog post. This will be my ‘night’ lip. For a more natural look in the day I’ll wear a pinky nude from Mac in the shade ‘angel’. It’s a frost finish so I’ll dab this on my lips as I’m not a massive fan of the finish when applied heavily on the lips.

The look is complete! An easy transition from the day to the night and I really like this look! It’s kind of different and something I wouldn’t usually wear, but on the face the colours seem to mash beautifully and I love the finished look – both for the day and the night! Look out for another easy ‘day to night’ look coming next month!

    Shadows from Naked 3 that you used in this look are my favourite ones from the palette! They are sooo pretty 🙂

    I use that look all the time and I think that they are great for both day and night 🙂
