Girls Night Out: Day to Night Makeup

Every girl loves to feel glam, but with children and jobs most of us don’t have time to do it. So I’m going to show you how to transform your everyday make up look to a night out glam with only 3 extra steps! Yes, you read that right… only 3 products to go from a Day to Night look.

It’s so easy, and so effective, and you can do it in literally minutes!

First, you’re going to want to start with your everyday makeup. For myself that’s a little bit of foundation (sometimes), bronzer, filling in my eye brows, mascara, and lip liner used all over my lips to give them some colour. If you’d like to see a more in depth tutorial on how I do my every day makeup, head on over to my Instagram page because I have it in my Beauty Highlights!

And now for the magical three steps.


To amp up the eyes I like to add a brown shadow all over the lid and blending up into the crease. You can use your bronzer for this or another brown shade that is a couple shades darker then your skin tone. I like to use Mac Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Uninterrupted.


When turning a simple look into something a little more fancy, blush can make the world of a difference. By adding some colour to your cheeks, it can instantly bring more life to your face and help tie in the rest of the look. I love Mac Cosmetics Blush in Mocha for this because it is natural enough that I can use it with almost any look I’m doing, but can be layered for a more dramatic look.


This is the last step in turning your daytime look to a night time look. I love adding a pop of colour on the lips because it can instantly make you look and feel more dressed up! You don’t even have to do any of the other steps to take your look to the next level (although I like to because I feel it helps your face look like a cohesive look). My go to colour for a night out is red because, really, who doesn’t love a red lip?! I feel unstoppable when I’m wearing red lipstick. It’s like an instant boost in confidence when I put it on. My favourite red lipstick is Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Outlaw. When she says it’s everlasting, she means it! I rarely have to reapply this colour once I put it on which is one of the reasons I love it so much.

And there you have it! With only 3 easy steps, you are now ready for a night out! This look is so versatile it can be worn with almost any outfit. Want to blam it up even more? Go ahead and through some glitter on and some false lashes.

What is your go to night out look?
