Day into evening 10 minute makeup routine



This was a really simple look from start to finish, using the more subtle natural colours for the daytime look and going bolder for the evening.  I love the looks you can create with makeup, but sometimes you want a daytime look that is just you only better – barely there.


Products used:

Essence get big lashes

Essence XXL nude lipgloss in Shy Beauty

Essence eyeshadow quatro in Most Wanted

Essence eyebrow pencils in Soft Blonde and Brown

Essence easy eyeliner pen

Essence lipstick in all about cupcake


After applying base, brush some of the lightest colour in the quad over your lids

Apply one coat of mascara

Shade in brows with light pencil

Apply gloss

And voila!  A 5 minute routine for a daytime ‘you but better’ look.


To give the look a few tweaks for evening takes just 5 minutes again

Shade brows in a darker pencil for a more sculpted look

Brush some of the darkest colour in the quad over your socket line into the outside of the lid and blend

Line with liquid liner, creating a small flick.

Line the lower lashes and apply more mascara.

Apply a darker lip colour of your choice.

And you’re done – a 10 minute routine to take you all through the day.

Do you have any tips for perfecting your daily makeup routine?
