Day To Night Beauty Essentials

Day To Night Beauty Essentials
I must say, transitioning my make up from day to night is probably my least favourite thing to do. My personal preference is to just take it all off and start again. Sometimes however I don't have that luxury and I really do just need that quick turnaround.

In the past, if I knew I was going out somewhere after work for example and that I wouldn't have time to re-do my make up entirely I would panic pack. I would panic back my entire make up bag, all my skincare and some make up wipes just in case I could bag five minutes and start it all again. As time has moved on and I've learnt about my skin and my make up, I've found what works for me and that's what I'm going to share with you today. My absolute essentials for transitioning from day to night. Nothing more, nothing less.   

My skin changes quite a lot through out the day so first and foremost for me is hydration. Now most of the time, because I've already got make up on, I don't want anything that's going to smear or tug at my existing make up. I want something that's going to go right over top and sink in. This is where the Eight Hour Hydrating Mist comes in. I spray this four to five times around my face, with or without make up, and it absorbs instantly keeping whatever is underneath completely in tact.

Next up, I like to make sure my base is flawless and fresh. In my experience putting a high coverage concealer on over a face of make up doesn't quite look right - it's either the wrong colour or far too cakey. To eliminate this problem I like to take the YSL Touche Eclat and just pop it over any blemishes or dull spots. Nine out of ten times, it does the job perfectly and that's good enough for me. I then add a swipe of translucent powder over the top just to make sure it's locked in place and sometimes a little bronzer around the edge of my face just to give me some colour before using some Urban Decay setting spray.

My next step is to tackle the eyes. I like to make them look bright and awake though I'm probably half asleep and for this my absolute go to is liquid eyeliner - When they said 'A girl with liquid liner can conquer the world' they weren't lying. It's such an easy way to add drama to your make up, make you look more awake and just like you've made that little extra effort. I keep it simple and use this fool proof number from Collection, I've been using this since day one and if they ever stop producing it I'll have a breakdown. If I was creating a full night time look then I would probably use some eye shadows but as I'm usually in a rush at this point, I skip them.

I then like to add a generous amount of mascara to lengthen and volumise my eyelashes. If I've been wearing mascara during the day, sometimes I will just take a make up wipe and remove it. Just so my eyelashes are fluttery rather than clumpy and spider like. I'm currently loving this new L'Oreal Baby Roll mascara and I always make sure it's waterproof so no accidents happen. 

Lastly I move on to my lips. I make sure they're moisurised using whichever lip balm I have in my bag. Today it's Vaseline. I personally then like to go for a bold lip just to feel more dressed up and more like I've made an effort. I'll usually opt for a pink or a berry red but MACs Ruby Woo would also work a treat. My preference for bold lipsticks is matte just because they look a little more sophisticated but it's entirely your choice.

  2. These are great essentials and I can't not mention how lovely these photos are, seriously great work :)

    I love a red lip for night time as well, although my stupid dry lips can't handle something as matte as Ruby woo.

    1. Thank you so much - I'm really happy with them! I have the same issue some days so I put on the lightest layer with a brush and it usually does the trick! If not, there are so many great options out there, especially from L'Oreal X
