Day to Night

I started out with the look I did in October that I wore to a more professional event. I simply had gold on my lid and a light wash of brown in the crease with brown liner on top. I wanted to add more dimension and turn it into a "night out" look.

I simply applied a darker brown in the outer V for more dimension, so it doesn't look so flat. I used a black liner on top and a brown liner in the water line, which is perfect for a more brown smokey effect.

I also applied some of that same brown eyeshadow on the lower lash line to smoke it out even more.

One of my favorite light pink lip colors. Pink lips make my heart happy. :)

So all you need to carry in your purse to transition from day to night is : a darker shadow, black  and/or brown eyeliner, and your lip color of choice!

I hope you find this helpful! :)

Basic Smokey Eye

This is one of my favorite smokey looks. I used a black cream base in the outer V and crease. On top of that, I put a warm brown shadow to give it an awesome gray/gunmetal effect. I left the inner third of the lid light to open up the eye a bit.

I rimmed my water line and tight line with my Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero. My fave!

Since the eyes are so heavy, I used a baby pink blush and lipstick. But if you're doing this look for going out or a special event, you can definitely do a more dramatic lip, too. :)

Tis the Season...

For green eyeshadow! I very rarely wear green eyeshadow. I don't know why; I actually love it. Green may not be a part of your normal palette, but what a more perfect time to start wearing it than now? It's so perfect for a Christmas or New Year's party. This look is a bit more dramatic than the last look I did.

I used three different shades of green to create this look. I also used black in the crease to add more definition. I used a black liquid liner on top and lined my water line and tight line with a black creamy eyeliner. If I were wearing this to a party, I'd also add a pair of falsies, but that's just me. :)

For the lips, I used a nude lip color, but lined them in brown for more definition. If you're going to wear this to a party, I would also add a highlight to the lips with either a gloss or shimmery eyeshadow, or both for a more long-lasting effect.

I hope you try this look! It's super fun! :)
