Last week I went to a concert and wanted something I could wear to work yet amp it up (quickly) for nighttime. Here is what I came up with.
Get The Look (Day)
Foundation: Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation in 2
Eyes: I used the Urban Decay Naked Palette but any gray and brown eyeshadow should work
Concealer: Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla
Eyeliner (top only)- Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner
Mascara: Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant
Cheeks: Too Faced Pink Leopard Blushing Bronzer
Laura Mercier Lip Glacé in Blush
Transform from day to night with a few products.
Get The Look (Night)
Lid- I applied L.A. Splash Cosmetics SplashProof Sealer Base on top of the existing Gunmetal Shadow before patting on L.A. Splash Cosmetics Body/Face Glitter in Rock Star. The sealer gives the glitter something to grip on to but is optional.
Eyeliner- Line bottom lashes with Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet and trace over it with Gunmetal.
Mascara- Add another coat of mascara Make Up Forever Smoky Extravagant
Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipstick in Palomino
You can customize this look to your preference. Skip the glitter if you feel it’s too much or stick to a lighter lip color.
Hope you enjoyed this look and thanks for reading,

Over the weekend I decided to create a makeup look inspired by fall colors/trends. I think all skin tones can try this with room for modification.
Key Products Needed
Basically, you’ll need an orange eyeshadow, any shade(s) of brown, your favorite eyeliner/mascara and a berry lip color.

A simple and pretty makeup look that enhances your eye color and is perfect for a night out!
Foundation: Use your favorite foundation, tinted moisturizer or powder. (Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation in 2)
Bronzer: I chose a matte bronzer but shimmer can work too (Too Faced Chocolate Soleil)
Blush: Soft pink color (Nars Blush in Douceur)
Highlight: A light beige color on the lid
Contour: A medium brown on the crease
*I used a neutral palette for the highlight and contour colors so I don’t have specific shade names*
Inner Corner Lid: A shimmery silver color (NYX Eyeshadow in Snow Candy)
Lid: A purple color on the lid (Lancome Color Design Eyeshadow in Drama)
Liner: I used black eyeliner to line both the lashline and waterline (Cailyn Line-Fix Gel Eyeliner in Black (top) and Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet (bottom)). Then, I used a small angled brush to smudge the same purple eyeshadow I used on the lids (Drama) to the bottom lashline.
Mascara: Black mascara (Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant)
A berry shade (Tarte LipSurgence Natural Lip Tint in Moody)
You can make this look a bit more dramatic by adding false eyelashes and rocking a red lip or tone it down by using a nude lip color.
Spring is perfect for a few bold and bright shades in makeup. Here’s a neutral look splashed with a pop of color I created. The products I used are in parenthesis. You can also simplify this look by skipping the crease color and using only one eyeshadow, either the medium shade or the lightest shade on the lid; you’ll still get the pop of color.
Face: Use a light-weight foundation to provide an even base. (Smashbox Liquid Halo HD Foundation)
Concealer: Use concealer only if you need it. (Kat Von D Lock-It Tatto Concealer)
Cheeks: A soft pink blush gives checks a bit of color without competing with the overall look. A swipe of bronzer can also be used in place of blush to provide a subtle hint of color. (Nars Blush in Douceur)
Eyes Primer: This step is optional, however it does keep the eyeshadow from creasing (Too Faced Shadow Insurance)
Eyeshadows: Use neutral colored eyeshadows, one light, one medium and one dark. Pat the medium shade on the lid and use the darker shade in the crease. The lightest shade, also known as a highlight shade, should be used just underneath the brows and make sure to blend well. (Urban Decay Naked 3: Trick (lid), Factory (crease), and Strange (highlight).
Eyeliner: Line the top lid with black liner and the bottom with a blue. (Stila All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner in Jet Black and Maybelline Master Drama Chromatics in Blast of Blue)
Mascara: One to two coats of your favorite mascara (Milani Total Lash Cover Mascara with 3 Zone Brush)
Brows: Shade in brows with powder (Merle Norman Natural Brow Powder)
Lips: Choose a bold lip color, preferably pink, coral, or orange (Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Tart)
