Easy & Quick Day-To-Night Look

So I guess we can all agree on that consistent posting is not my strong suit...
Today however I decided to do a whole 'day-to-night' dedicated post all on how I very quickly transform my normal day look into a much more dramatic and glamorous night-look. Grab your Rimmel Scandaleyes products and one of your UD Naked palettes and lets get to work.


For the base I kept it light and natural with some BB Cream and a light stroke of bronzer/blusher.  On the  eyes I used th Rimmel Shadow Stick on my outer corner, blended that in with the Eye Paint and then lined the upper lashline and outer corner of the lower lashline with MAC's Teddy. After some curling of the lashes I added my go-to mascara.


I wanted my nighttime look to be quick but still flawless and quite dramatic. I touched up my foundation with True Match (a new little favourite), then did some contouring with Hoola and added a bit of glow with my TopShop Crescent Moon highlighter. With a little pencil brush in my hand and some tissue under my eye to catch any fall down I used the matte black in the Naked2 palette to create a strong, but well blended outer v shape. I took it into the crease a bit and along half of the lower lash line. Could also have done this using the colour Creep from the original Naked palette. I made sure to build up the v shape to be very black, smoky and intense. I added the gorgeous gold colour Half Baked to the lid space not 'occupied' by the black, then took it along the inner half of the lower lash line. I made sure to make the gold very upaque before I softly blended the line between gold and black to soften the harshness of it.

Then after a quick coat of mascara I was done. It might sound like a long process but trust me it wasn't. I hope you all enjoyed this post. I am going to try and do a weekly post from now on as I think that is a realistic goal. If you have anything you'd like me to blog about then let me know and I will get on it!
