~ Easy Day to Evening Look ~

July 9, 2009

A good friend of mine stopped in today and we decided to do something fun while catching up…makeup! While “J” is a conservative type when it comes to makeup, she doesn’t mind kicking it up a notch for the evening out. Her skin is a combination skin with some oily and some dry. There are hints of redness and pores around the nose.  Forgive photo quality. We had a LOT of sunlight coming in;) Here is the before:














We prepped her face with MAC wipes and a spritz of MAC’s Fix+ to tone and moisturize “J”s sensitive combination skin in a simple step. We also applied a moisturizing lip balm. “J” is not a big fan of heavy daytime looks, so we went very simple and clean. Here is her “Daytime” result…

BEN NYE Neutral Set Powder

MAX FACTOR Colorgenius Blush in SPICES


TWO FACED Shadow Insurance

MAC shadow in SWEET JOY all over lid

MAC shadow in GENTLE HEAT in crease

MAC eyeliner in STUBBORN BROWN to top and bottom corners of lashline

MAC Shadow in EMBARK to fill in brows



MAC lipstick in BLANKETY

MAC lipgloss in VIVA GLAM V


As you can see, “J” is a beautiful lady who doesn’t need much. Small hints of  neutral colors really bring out her best and make for a softer, natural look.

When the daytime look was complete, we added a few touches to show an easy transition to a more evening look with just a few additions… Here is the result and product list.

Added to the daytime look was..

MAC eyeshadow in REAL DRAMA to the outer V

MAC fluid eyeliner in BLACKTRACK

RIMMEL Sexy Curves Mascara in Extreme Black


Just a simple, easy transition from “DAY” to “EVENING” with only 3 easy steps! With such great eyes, this transition was easy to do and the result was beautiful;)

Enjoy and thanks “J” for stopping by!
