This weeks challenge for the members of the FashionMagazine.com Beauty Panel was “How do you transition your makeup and/or hair from day to night?”
You can check out my quick and easy take on taking your makeup from everyday to an evening out by clicking on the image below. Scroll down for more images and information.
My favourite method of giving my look a complete makeover is to simply change my lip colour. By swapping out your everyday lip shade (I’m wearing Maybelline Color Whisper Lipstick in “Rose Attraction”) for a super vivid shade, such as “Fuchsia Flash” from the new Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Lipstick collection, or a hot red, like Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in “400 The Red,” or a deep vampy shade like Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge in “#10 Raspberry” (as shown), you can totally transform your whole appearance for nighttime impact. I love the Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouges for bold lip shades because they do not budge. AT ALL. There are no concerns of fading, bleeding, or transfer with these lipsticks.
If you are not comfortable with a more attention grabbing lip (or maybe you already wear one everyday) then you can opt for my second quick and simple trick: Glitter baby! Simply pat some eye-catching glitter on top of your everyday eye look and it is suddenly fit to party. My favourite glitter is from LIT Cosmetics, an Alberta company. I used their Clearly Liquid Glitter Base and Champagne Wishes Solid Size #2 Glitter for this look.And if you feel like going all out, and have an extra couple minutes to spare, then rock both!
