The Look of the Moment: Holi-day to Night

Holi-Day

Night

why we love this look

From office parties to happy hours, ‘tis the season of post-work get togethers. And while taking your makeup from profesh to party is no easy feat, there’s no need to stash doubles of everything in your purse. A strong base—enhanced with a few simple staples—is all you need to take your look from the desk to the dancefloor.

what we used to take our look from day to night

Simple + sophisticated

Simple + sophisticated


The secret to a smooth day-to-night transition? A flawless base. Keep your day look simple with a layerable foundation—like the seriously long-lasting KOH GEN DO Maifanshi Aqua Foundation—and a few dabs of liquid highlighter on the high points of the face. Note: if your skin tends to get oily, we recommending prepping with Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector. Finish things off with strong, defined brows and a coat of Surratt Beauty’s creamy Lipslique in Paramour. If you want, you can add a light layer of shadow and mascara, but be sure choose only bendable, layerable formulas. Think of your daytime look as a base which is ready to be built on.

Sultry eyes + Showstopping lips


Transitioning from day to night is all about adding a little drama, pumping up the volume with a statement lip and sultry eyes.

For eyes, don’t feel the need to remove leftover eyeshadow from your daytime look. Instead, layer matte shadows on top using IT COSMETICS Naturally Pretty Essentials™ Matte Luxe Transforming Eyeshadow Palette. Pro tip: always opt for mattes, since they blend easier than the shimmer shadows, and add more depth and dimension. Next, bump up your mascara to an evening look with a few extra layers—we love Ellis Faas mascara for its super buildable qualities.

The simplest way to make a bold change is with the classic lipstick switcharoo. Turn your nude lip into something bold and beautiful with Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Lip Tar in NSFW. The deep satin finish is just intense enough to be a pretty focal point, and longwearing enough to last through cocktails and New Year’s Eve kisses.
