A Weekend Special - Daytime/Nighttime Look


This weekends post is changing a day time look in to a suitable look for the evening.
With the Christmas season upon us, and with a hectic and busy schedule, here is a simple way to change an everyday look into something suitable for an evening.

Products: MAC Black Eyeliner // Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Big Bang // M.A.C. Studio Finish Concealer in NC15 //

Makeup: With a normal everyday makeup look, there are 3 things you can do to change it to an evening look. 
1. Apply some black eyeliner onto the upper lash line, and then use a fluffy brush to smudge it out, apply some on the lower waterline too and this will create a simple yet subtle smokey eye that's not too over the top. I normally wear a very simple, neutral eye makeup, normally with an eyeshadow in the crease to define my eye and a highlight colour in the inner corner to brighten it so adding black eyeliner really helps to glam it up and define those lashes.
2. Another way which sounds so simple is to sport a red lip. My favourite everlasting red lip colour to use is the Rimmel Apocalips Lip Lacquer in Big Bang. This stuff lasts so long, it has the pigmentation of a lip stick and the lasting power of a stain, and it's not too matte and not too glossy, depending on how you apply it etc. But this product is by far my favourite for when I don't want to be constantly checking and re-applying all night.
3. Finally the last thing is to apply some concealer on any blemishes or red patches where it may have come off through the day, my favourite to do this is the M.A.C. Studio Finish Concealer in NC15. I use a tiny brush so I can precisely cover any blemishes or areas of redness, without it looking cakey or going anywhere I don't need it to.
I also like to curl my hair as it makes it look like you have put a lot more effort and time into your look when actually you only had about 10 minutes to get ready.

Day Time: Black Skinnies, Dorothy Perkins £22.00 // White Converse, Schuh £45.00 // Red Top, Dorothy Perkins £9.99 // Burgundy Snood, Dorothy Perkins £8.99 //
Night Time: Black Skirt, H&M £7.99 // Waterfall Jacket, New Look £34.99 //  Black Envelope Clutch, New Look £9.99 // Black Suede Heels, Barratts £25.00 // Long Gold Necklace, eBay £3.99 // 

Fashion: The clothes you wear obviously have a big part to play with changing to a night time look. First off I switched the jeans and converse for a black skirt, tights and patent heels (or flats). Next the big leather bag is swapped for a simple envelope clutch. I keep the red top and waterfall jacket from New Look, and finally replace the snood with a long gold necklace..

This is brilliant if you have to get ready for a Christmas do as soon as you get in from work. Or if you have had a day of Christmas shopping and don't have a lot of time before you are going out.
I hope this has helped some of you this festive season. Keep an eye out on my blog as there are more posts will be up over the next week.
