From Drab to Fab: Transforming Daytime Makeup into a Dazzling Evening Look

Do you ever feel like day-to-day makeup looks too generic and dull? Are you always struggling to create a more glamorous evening look? If so, then it’s time to transform your daytime makeup into a dazzling evening look! With the help of a few small adjustments, you can create an eye-catching evening makeup look in no time. In this article, we’ll show you how to switch from drab to fab and transform your everyday makeup into a beautiful evening look.

1. Breathing New Life Into Your Daytime Makeup

It can be easy to become set in your ways when it comes to daytime makeup. We slip into routines, forgetting how much impact a change of just one or two makeup techniques can have on your entire look. With the right combination, a daytime look can go from basic to oomph-worthy in minutes.

  • Try a Deeper Shade – Sheer washes of colour make an effortless daytime look, but if you want more impact, try switching it up with a deep hue. Adding a deep lip, or even an eyeliner colour like brown or aubergine can elevate the look.
  • Texture and Sparkle – A soft glow can transform a look from average to enlivened. Try adding a shimmery eyeshadow right in the centre of your lid, keeping the edges neutral, or add a soft powder highlight to the tops of your cheeks.
  • Change Up your Blush – An easy way to update a look is to switch up your blush. Instead of a matte powder, try a cream to add depth and texture, and don’t be afraid to add a cool pink tone if you generally pick a warm one.
  • Try a Bright Crayon – A colourful eye crayon like a deep green or cobalt blue can be a great way to wake up a look. Apply it close to the lash line and keep the lid light – a shimmery nude eyeshadow often works well in this instance.
  • Make Your Mascara Pop – Switch out a black mascara for a navy or brown one. Natural tones can be just as impactful as a dark hue, and they don’t look too heavy. Keep the lashes simple with one coat to keep the look light and airy.

Incorporating just a few of these tips can turn a mundane look into something special. If you are looking to inject new life into your daily look, keep it interesting with beautiful fresh combinations.

2. Steal the Spotlight: Crafting a Sparkle-Filled Evening Look

When the occasion demands you to sparkle and shine, don’t shy away from the drama. These next few tips are all about grabbing the spotlight and owning the whole room.

Go the extra mile with Metals

It’s undeniable: metallic pieces are the epitome of an arresting evening ensemble. Whether it’s a glittery dress, the pendant on a choker or a pair of earrings, don’t be timid about mixing tones of silver, gold and rose gold. Just keep in mind that too many metallic colors can come across as muddled, so don’t go too wild with it.

Heed the Details

Curating a glittery look is as much about the details as it is about the garments. Think about adding some bright crystals to the edges of a skirt, sprinkling some sequins onto those killer stilettos or even a bright swath of sparkles onto a bag. It will be like an outer-space fairytale!

Capture the Light

Nothing drives the full effect of a sparkly look home like strategically placed lighting. Whether you’re in a club, on a rooftop terrace, or at your own event, use the light to make your clothing shimmer and your jewelry sparkle. If it’s dark, bring the light with you by clasping a few glinting bracelets loosely around your wrist or wearing a matte necklace that will easily reflect ambient light.

Let Loose with Fabric

  • Velour, velvet, silk or satin
  • Crocheted, sheer, printed or metallic
  • Textured, pleated, layered or ruffled

When it comes to fabric choices for any kind of night-time look, you have numerous options for lending a splash of glitz. Get creative and choose fabrics with sparkling details, like embossed velvet, sequined chiffon or shimmery metallic. Sparkle doesn’t have to be limited to jewelry–use fabric and texture to create an eye-catching outfit from head to toe.

3. Simple Swaps for a Winning Evening Glow

A glowing complexion is a prize worth striving for! With a few simple swaps, you can give yourself an evening glow that will have your friends and family asking what your secret is. We’ve outlined 3 simple swaps to help you get that enviable look.

    1. Exfoliating

  • Exfoliating helps to slough off dead skin, leaving your face looking fresh, healthy and radiant. Find a gentle facial scrub that is suitable for your skin type to keep oil production in balance and keep pores clear.
    2. Sheet Masks

  • Nothing says beauty more than a good sheet mask! Sheet masks have become one of the most popular beauty products on the market for good reason. They are saturated with powerful active ingredients that work to give your skin a boost of hydration and keep it looking bright and beautiful.
    3. Moisturizer

  • Once you have cleaned and moisturized your skin, be sure to apply a hydrating moisturizer to lock in moisture and help your skin maintain a healthy glow. Look for hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and vitamins.

Finally, don’t forget to apply sunscreen to protect your face during the day. A daily moisturizer that contains SPF will give you extra protection and help you maintain a natural, glowing complexion.

By making a few simple swaps every day, you can give yourself a beautiful evening glow that will have everyone around you taking notice!

4. Upgrade Your Not-So-Plain-Jane Daytime Makeup

For those who don’t really wear makeup day-to-day, it can be hard finding the perfect balance when it comes to glamming up for special events. But don’t worry! There’s a way to upgrade your everyday look without going overboard. Here’s how:

  • Start with the basics

Nothing can really ruin a makeup look like having visible flaws like uneven skin tone, dark circles, or excessive blemishes. Start by using a foundation for even-toned skin, and use a good concealer to hide the blemishes. By prepping your face with the basics you’ll be giving yourself a great foundation to build on.

  • Subtly enhance your eyes

Daytime makeup should always focus on enhancing your eyes, while keeping things more understated than the night-time look. Try adding a touch of bronze or copper to the eyelids, and taupe or brown for your eyeliner. A mascara to enhance your lashes is a must.

  • Cheeks and lips

A good blush can help accentuate your cheekbones and give you an instant lift. Try a coral or pink shade, which will look subtle during the day, but will also give you a bit of color. Highlight the cheekbones with a blush shade that mimics your natural flush.
For your lips, try a sheer lip gloss to add a bit of shine and definition without looking “too done”.

  • Putting it all together

Finally, add a bit of illuminator to give you a subtle glow and you’re all set! Blending and contouring can also help give your makeup a more sculpted finish, but don’t overdo it or it will show up too much during the day.

By following these tips you’ll be able to upgrade your basic daytime look without looking too rugged. Have fun experimenting with different colors to find that perfect version of you!

5. Spreading Glitz & Glamour: The Perfect Nighttime Look

Partly cloudy or clear skies, low lights, and an opportunity to shine- the nightime look is essential for special occasions and private events. So, let’s get rolling on the perfect formula for spreading glitz & glamour even during the night.

The key is to focus on eyes, cheeks, and lips:

  • Start by priming your eyelid and use eyeliner to tightline the upper lashes. This will give you an enviable eye shape and intense look.
  • Follow up with heavier mascara on the upper lashes so that eyes almost appear to have a veil on them. Not too much. You don’t want to look like a raccoon!
  • There is one exception to the evening look: you can go with bold colored eyeshadows. It can make your eyes sparkle if used correctly.
  • Cheeks require a subtle powder contour. Choose a two-toned beige shade for brighter cheekbones.
  • To add even more color, you can use a bronzer in the apple of your cheeks.
  • Finally, for lips choose a deep burgundy or even dark brown. Red and pink shades are too safe for an evening look.

The finished look must also be accessorized the right way for the full effect. Think statement neckpieces, tassel earrings, and gloves that will give you that extra glam factor.

You don’t have to be a professional makeup artist to create an evening look. Just a few simple steps and you are ready shine all night!

Creating a beautiful evening look doesn’t have to be overwhelming. With a few simple steps and strategies, you can go from drab to fab in no time. Just a few minutes of effort can help ensure you look ravishing and ready for any special occasion. So go ahead, make a statement and shine!
