How to take any make-up look from day to night!

The blogosphere and You tube is full of tutorials of how to take particular make-up looks from day to night.
I am a big fan of looks I can easily transition from a natural day look to a glam night look and now that I'll be starting back at Uni soon it's so handy to know what to do to your make-up to take it from the lecture theatre to the SU.

Here's a few tips for how to take any look from day to night.

When applying your day time look:

Go for Flawless skin
This will easily transition into the night time glam look
Set Your Make up well
You want your foundation to last so use a good finishing spray over the top of your foundation
Go for lashes
Make your lashes look big and full as it can be difficult to apply a second coat of mascara at the end of the day

For my day time look I've used

Rimmel Match Perfection Cream Gel Foundation
No7 Mineral Blush - Rose Pink
Sleek Brow Kit - Light
Inika Eyeliner - Coco
Maybelline The Falsies Volume Express Mascara - Black
Lancome - Juicy Tube - Chai Freeze

When Transitioning your look:
Add Eyeshadow/Liner
A darker eye look will instantly add drama to your look
A Bold Lip
A strong red, pink or coral is great for the night time look even if it's the only thing you do
Where you put blusher
Instead of on the apple of your cheeks, place your blush on your cheek bone, just above where you contour
Add in a bit of bronzer under your blush, if your short for space just use the same brush

For my night time look I applied these products over the top of my day time look

Topshop Blush - Prime Time
Benefit Hoola Bronzer (mine is a sample size which is great for carrying in your bag, I also used it on my eyelids)
ELF Shimmering Facial Whip - Lilac Petal
MUA Lipstick - Shade 1
Maybelline Colour Tattoo - On and On Bronze
Real Techniques Stippling brush
ELF Professional Blending Brush

So ladies, if you follow those few guidelines then you will have no problem transitioning your look from day to night with minimal products and effort!
