I’m super excited to share this tutorial with you guys – it’s the perfect way to go from work or school to a night out, and it takes almost no time! The secret?

The Effortless Way to Take Your Look From Day to Night

This day-to-night makeup tutorial is super simple and totally effortless. I love how easy these looks are to achieve – it’s the perfect tutorial for beauty gurus of all levels! Best of all, you don’t have to remove any of your makeup to go from day to night – just add eyeshadow and lipstick!

For this makeup tutorial, you will need a neutral eyeshadow and light lip color for daytime, and a black eyeshadow and dark lip color for nighttime! Most importantly, you’ll need a great primer to make your foundation last all day and keep your skin looking flawless. Oh, and did I mention the amazing Nu Skin Moisture Mist? It’s seriously amazing. This facial spray is the secret to making your makeup look fresh and clean. Amazing, right?

Are you ready to take your look from day to night? Grab your favorite eyeshadow palette and give this tutorial a try!

The Daytime Look:

Step 1: Apply foundation.

Day to Night Step One

Use a foundation brush to apply an even layer of primer across your skin (I LOVE this one by Smashbox). This step is a must – primer makes your skin super smooth, and it keeps your foundation looking flawless all day and night. Next, apply liquid foundation and dust on your favorite setting powder. (My faves are Halo Perfecting Powder by Smashbox and Luxury Powder by Ben Nye.) Finish with a soft pink blush on your cheekbones– I used the pink blush on this NYX Cheek Contour Duo Palette.

Step 2: Add a neutral eyeshadow.

Day to Night Step Two

I opted for a subtle bronze shadow, but you can totally feel free to go more gold or pink. Whatever color you choose, applying eyeshadow primer first is a must! I used a mini blending sponge to apply Inglot Eye Makeup Base to my eyelids before applying Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze.

Step 3: Apply eyeliner and mascara.

Day to Night Step Three

Next, make your eyes pop by applying a wing of black eyeliner to each eyelid. To make this the perfect day-to-night look, I chose a waterproof eyeliner pen by KleanColor (it glides on easily and lasts forever!). After curling my lashes I applied Lash Sensation by Maybelline to make my lashes look long and full.

Step 4: Fill in your brows.

Day to Night Step Four

I love this step! There’s something about a filled-in brow that just really completes a makeup look.  I used a tinted brow gel that sculpts and defines – Sculpting Brow Mascara by Maybelline.

Step 5: Apply lipstick.

Day to Night Step Five

I opted for a pretty pink for my daytime lip color, but you can choose your favorite. KleanColor has a ton of matte colors that are perfect for this look!

The Nighttime Look

Step 1: Spray face with moisture mist.

Day to Night Step Six

To take your look from day to night, give your skin a few sprays of this amazing Moisture Mist by Nu Skin. Even after a long day, your skin will feel fresh and clean!

Step 2: Contour your cheekbones.

Day to Night Step Seven

Grab the same NYX Cheek Contour Duo Palette you used for your daytime look, then use the dark brown to contour your cheekbones. Add some to the outside edges of your face to make your skin pop!

Step 3: Apply a dark eyeshadow.

Day to Night Step Eight

You’ll LOVE this next step. Grab your favorite black eyeshadow and apply it to each of your eyelids. I used a matte black shadow by NYX to give my eyes a dramatic pop.

Step 4: Apply a dark lip color.

Day to Night Step Nine

The perfect night out calls for the perfect dark lip! Complete your nighttime look with a bold red lip color (this burgundy one by KleanColor is my favorite!).

Step 5: Your look is complete!

Day to Night Step Ten

Ta-da! With your dark eye makeup and your bold red lip, you’re ready for the perfect night out! All it took were a few steps to look absolutely flawless.

See how it’s done in the video below!
