I am participating in the DailyBuzz Style 9x9 "Day to Night" Makeup Challenge. We were asked to create two looks: one for the day time and one for the evening. I thought I would create a look that is versatile and only requires a mere minutes to transition into an "night look". Who wants to spend hours getting ready to go out?! Not I.
Below are all of the steps broken down to create the two looks. I also included all of the product names for those of you interested.
Products used in "Day Look"
Steps for foundation/setting skin
-Revlon "Color Stay" (in light/medium) under eyes and on blemishes
-Benefit "Boi-ing" dabbed under eyes, to brighten
-Bare Minerals powder to set skin
-Apply a thin line of liquid eyeliner on top lid and extend slightly past lashes (used: Sephora liquid eyeliner in black)
-Apply two coats of mascara (used: CoverGirl lash perfection in black)
-Apply highlighter on cheek and brow bone (used: Benefit High Beam)
-Rub in product to give a soft glow to skin
-Apply bronzer to cheek bones and forehead (used: Chanel bronzer in Terre Ambre)
-Apply clear/nude lipgloss (used: Giorgio Armani)

These steps are added onto the "Day Look" to transition it into a "Night Look" within minutes!
-Apply a slightly smokey shade of grey to eyelid (used: Dior "Couture Golds" palette)
-Apply a thin line of eyeliner on bottom lashes (used: L'oreal Paris pencil eyeliner in dark brown)
-Add a deep shade of lipstick (used: Revlon "Plum")
