Day & Night

Don't have much time to get ready for a night out? It's so easy to quickly transition your makeup from day to night. Just a few touches here and there can really make a difference. Night makeup should be deeper and darker than your normal, day makeup...because...well it's dark out. You need more color saturation for your features to stand out. 

A few Saturdays ago I was busy throughout the majority of the day. I had a dinner to get ready for that evening, and literally had 15 minutes to get dressed, do my hair and makeup, and jump in a cab to head downtown. I simply added a black liner to my lower lash line, a few extra swipes of blush for more color, a bronzer for contour, and a darker lip. Quick and easy.

Sorry for the low quality "night" pic...I snapped a quick photo before heading out for dinner.
