~ 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…
SMASHBOX photofinish primer
MAX FACTOR Panstik
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 Lipliner in SUBCULTURE
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!
