Eversince Michelle Phan created a video on basic smokey eyes, my life has changed- I was no longer hopeless in the technical part of make up like the blending and smudging. As a self taught make up artist herself, she proved that as long as you are eager to learn- you can do it! So yes, I learn all my make up skills through her and working at the Bodyshop helps alot with the different eye shapes, tones, and smudging.
Here are two looks from Day to Night- using a few shades of brown and two lip colours can make a whole lot of difference yet easy and fuss free.
Read on to find out how I transform from day to night.
First of, squeeze a pea size amount on the back of your hand.I used Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation. With this foundation, there is no need for touch-up. Lasted me throughout the day!
|Next, apply the foundation starting from one side of your side then move on to the other.|
Powder your face to set your make up and put on blusher on the apple of your cheek. The one I'm using here is from Clear Last Peach John in Medium.
Use any colour closest to your skintone and apply it on your crease as shown above to subtly contour your eyes. To those of you who dont know where you crease is, it's in between your brow bone and eyeball.
Here I used my trusty Stila's In the Light eyeshadow palette. Long lasting colours and this baby last me for ages.
Apply a bronze colour on your entire eyelid and avoid the browbone and line your eyes. It looks heavy here, but in real life, it's quite subtle.
For a soft look, put on a soft pink lip colour. Neutral pink lipstick could do no wrong. You can go with a nude lipsticks if you are not into pink tones.
Moving on to night look, all I've to do is intensify my eye makeup with a darkbrown eye shadow especially around the eyelids.
Once you are done with that, you could either stick with the same neutral lip colour oor amp it up with a red lipcolour. If you have warm skin tone like me, your best colour would be a wine-y red colour or red with orange tones.
To hightlight your lip, instead of using your usual highlighter shade, turn it up by using a gold eyeshadow! I used half baked from Urban Decay. Dab a little on on the centre of your lips and blend.
