Hello my lovelies, how are you all?
So i think we all have had the struggle of being in a rush and having to attempt a day to night transition and it not looking flawless. In this post i will be showing you solutions to a quick simple switch to get you ready for a big night out.
Vegas has always been a place ive wanted to visit its full of bright lights, big names and a glamorous people. When exploring all the things you can do whether it is day or night you want your makeup to look amazing always, but in reality thats not always the case, so here is a simple look to make hopefully a little easier. I was challenged by vegas.com to create a makeup day to night transition look inspired by one of their many beautiful hotels. The range of hotels is as amazing as the interior they’re all fitted with night clubs, glamorous parties and 5 star restaurants so you dont even need to leave your hotel! If you’re planning to take a trip to Vegas a good option would be to check out their great Las Vegas package deals that are perfect for holiday getaway.
I eventually picked the hotel Venetain, which is a luxorious Italian old-world style resort, to create my look around. Its got everything from gondolas to some of the best places to shop and dine. Italians are generally very tanned so i plan to do a bronze glam look to show the heratige of the building but still incorperating gold inspired by the Venetain’s stunning interior as you can see above.
The day look…
The Venetain as i said is covered in gold rooms and marble floors. To recreate this for the day i put an oranagy burnt gold all over my lid with a bronze crease. This look may be more of a night look for some of you but this is my day look i hope you enjoy.
First i start with my Bareminerals Blemish Ready powder founation as for a day look you dont need lots of coverage. I buffed this all into my face apart from around the eyes, as i applied a morphe concealer a few shades lighter than my skin in that area.
I bronzed my skin with the Makeup Revolution bronzer, and darkened it up with a shimmery bronzer in the same palette, so i could be as golden as the Venetain. As a blush i took my lancome blush on the apples of my cheek and went over it with my pink subtle highlight to create a healthy glowy look. To ‘snatch’ my nose i took the same bronzer on the edges of my nose and across the middle creating a button style nose; to make it more natural you can take the brush you applied foundation with and go over the contour with it. As a highlight i took a white highlight with golden reflects on the tops of my cheek bones, cupids bow and tip of my nose.
In the day i would want my eyeshadow to me quick, simple but still stunning, so i can go explore the sights early whilst still looking put together and glamorous. For the eyes i started with a Morphe concealer that i set and used in the place of a primer. I went in with peach smoothie from makeup geek then went over it with a burnt orange from my Morphe 35W palette. All over the lid i took the shade 157 from inglot which is a golden orange shade, then i darkened the crease with my bronzer. I took peach smoothie and the inglot shadow called 157 sweeping it across the lower lash line, to finish in the inner corner i put the shade 09 from inglot in my inner corner. To finish i applied several coats of maybelline lash sensational mascara and its done.
Finally i did my lips which is as simple as anything, i lightly outlined them using my foundation to make it look more natural. Then applied my carmex lip balm all over my lips to keep them hydrated all day, then a light coating of gloss in the centre to add a sheen.
The evening look…
This look is to get you ready for the exclusive parties and nightclubs the Venetain has to offer whilst taking less than 15 mins to change.
To start with added more foundation in the areas i felt i needed it, creating more of a full coverage look. I also added my a light contour to create a more dramatic look, finally i added more of the golden highlight intending to have the same effect as the contour.
The eyes require a little more effort start by taking the gold off the centre of the lid, as we will be putting glitter there. Keeping the existing eyeshadow i darkened up the crease, and the inner and outer corners to create a halo effect, using a brown orangey colour from the morphe 35w palette. Using the same palette i took a darker colour, and built it up in the same areas to make it more dramatic, however still making sure the orange was visible higher up. Using a lash glue i put gold strictly glitter on the lower centre part of my lid to make the eyes pop. I also took the glitter on the bottom lash line in the middle to balance it out, after i swept the inglot shadow 157 under it. Finally i took my maybelline mascara and thickened up my lashes.
For the lips i have two options. Number one is to apply a nude lipstick to keep the attention on the eyes, for this i used Rimmel London’s Kate lipstick in shade 03. The second option is colouring your lips in with a berry lipliner, i used Rimmel lip linner mauve shimmer and the patted some highlight in the middle to make my lips appear bigger.
Love you, Abixx
