One of my friends is getting married this weekend. Although this day is going to be filled with plenty of fun and exciting moments, it poses a problem for me: how do I transform my daytime makeup into nighttime makeup without completely redo
ing it all?
I have my typical daytime look, as well as my nighttime look, but I don’t have a good “in between” look that can carry me from day to night. But, for this wedding, I need a look that will need to do double duty So, I will attempt to take my daytime makeup to nighttime without adding too much.
To start off,
I used a very light gold shadow over my lid. For this look, I am using shadows from Lorac’s Bejeweled Eye Shadow Collection. I am using the Topaz Bronze shades. I primed my eyelid with NYX’s Eye Shadow Base in Skin Tone.
Once that was done, I used my Clinique Cream Shaper for Eyes in Chocolate Lustre to line my lid. I then used a chocolate sparkle shadow in the same Lorac Topaz Shades to fill in and darken the Cream Shaper near my lashes.
I then added a bronze shadow on my brow bone. I blended the base shadow and this bronze color. I also added some of the Cream Shaper on my lower lash and water lines. I finished out the look with filling in my brows with my usual Benefit Brow Box (just the powder, not the wax and powder combination) and added a coat of Cargo’s Triple Action mascara to both my top and bottom lashes.
I was satisfied with this look and it seems appropriate for the church side of the ceremony. But, what could I add to this for the reception? Looking in my cosmetic bag, I found a silky eye shadow from Victoria’s Secret. This sparkly, neutral color is called Provocateur. I dabbed a little bit of this cream shadow with my finger onto my lid. It instantly added a little color and a night time feel to this day time look. I plan on darkening my lips and adding another coat (or two) of mascara before the ceremony, but I think this simple addition will take my ceremony look to reception look in no time! I will post a picture of the finished look tomorrow!
