Today I'm doing something a bit different and showing you different ways you can amp up your makeup if you're wanting to transform it to night-out appropriate. There are several ways you can do this but the aim of this post is to show that almost all makeup looks can be worn in a casual daytime setting or, by changing a few elements, can be worn for fully blown nights out. These are also good tips if you're short for time for getting ready for a night out or can't be bothered to take all your makeup off and reapply. The basis of all these makeup looks are the same: the same foundation, powder, brow products and eyeshadows have been used. 

The first makeup look is a quite natural one (for me). It has no lashes and no eyeliner, which for me are the two things which can take a makeup look from day to night time. Obviously if you feel happy enough wearing this makeup look on a night out then all power to you, but for me it's too simple.

  • FOUNDATIONNARS Sheer Glow [Shade: Punjab]
  • CONCEALER: L.A Girl Pro Conceal [Shade: Porcelain] 
  • POWDER: NYX Contour Palette [Shades: Cream & Soft Light] to set under eye area. Kat Von D Lock It Powder Foundation [Shade: Medium 53]
  • BRONZER: Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer
  • CONTOURMakeup Geek Contour Pan [Shade: Break Up] 
  • BLUSH: Milani Baked Blush [Shade: Luminoso] 
  • HIGHLIGHT: Becca/Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop & The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer
  • SETTING SPRAY: L'Oreal Infallible Fixing Mist
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade [Shade: Chocolate] 
  • Rimmel Brow Pencil [Shade: Black Brown]
  • L'Oreal Brow Artist Plumper [Shade: Medium/Dark] & Tarte Coloured Clay Tinted Brow Gel [Shade: Rich Brown]
  • EYE PRIMER: NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer [Shade: Chantilly] set with Makeup Geek White Lies
  • TRANSITION SHADESMakeup Geek Creme Brûlée  & Tiki Hut
  • Makeup Geek Morocco 
  • ON LID: Makeup Geek Casino & Sin City 
  • INNER CORNER & BROW BONE: Violet Voss Holy Grail Palette: Crystal 
  • WATERLINE EYELINER:  Zoeva Graphic Eyes [Shade: Black to Earth]
  • MASCARA: Maybelline Colossal Volume Express Mascara Cat Eyes
  • LIQUID LIPSTICKJeffree Star Cosmetics Velour Liquid Lipstick [Shade: Celebrity Skin]

The second look is pretty much the same as the first, just slightly more dramatic and fine tuned but also with the addition of lashes. The brows are slightly heavier and I've chiselled them out with concealer, and also added Ardell Demi Wispies. Because I have such small eyes adding eyelashes really makes a lot of difference for me. All the face and eye products are the same as in the previous photo.

This is obviously the most dramatic look of the 3, this will be too much for a lot of people but I did wear this look on a night out. All the products used on the face are the same, just more product has been used. The brows are a lot sharper still and more dramatic and also I've used more bronzer and contoured more harshly- but still all with the same products. The main difference is on the eyes, I've added a black winged liner, false lashes, bright colour on the lower lash liner and also a second line of winged liner in bright yellow. Additionally, I've gone with a much more dramatic lip [Dominatrix Liquid Lipstick]- one of the quickest and easiest ways of adding drama to a look is to change the lip colour from nude to something either brighter or darker. 
The extra products I used were: 
  • LIQUID LINER: Rimmel Glam Eyes [Shade: Black] & NYX Matte Liquid Liner [Shade: Black] & NYX Vivid Brights Liquid Liner [Shade: Vivid Halo] 
  • LOWER LASH LINE: Morphe 12P Palette Bright Yellow 
  • LIPS: Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick [Shade: Dominatrix] 

I hope you enjoyed this post and have seen how all makeup looks are very easy to manipulate depending on when and where you're wanting to wear them! I really love these makeup looks and Makeup Geek shadows are so high quality and easy to work with, you should definitely check them out if you haven't already.

thanks for reading,
