Last week was my birthday and I have been going out more than I usually do. This means I've had no time to redo my makeup for my night outings, so I've been doing the same day to night eye look each time. Here's a breakdown of what I did. I will possibly film a video at a later date, but for now here's some dodgy photos and what I used (I hadn't planned on doing this post so the night time eye photos were taken at the end of the night)!
Primer: Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Lid: Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in #82 Emerveille
Crease & outer corner: NARS Ashes to Ashes single eye shadow
Eyeliner: NARS Pandora eye shadow duo (black)
Mascara: Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes in black
|Night look (with worn out eyeliner)!|
For my night look, I simply added a little bit of NARS black eye shadow from the Pandora duo to my outer crease and patted a tiny bit of the Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in #82 Emerveille to the center of my lids. Then I lined both my waterline and tightline with Chantecaille Gel Liner pencil in Jet (black). I ran some black eyeshadow over the bottom eye liner to smoke it out a little. I should have used the NARS Larger than Life eyeliner because the Chantecaille one obviously doesn't have much staying power, even though it claims it does. Hmpf!
|I didn't reapply mascara because I didn't want it to clump. But I should have applied some false lashes.|
|A better angle of my night eye look. The lighting made me look like I hadn't blended my foundation. I look half dead, lol.|
|OOTD with my night makeup. I think I was going to see a movie in gold class but it was completely booked out, so we just went to a regular cinema. Usually I don't bother doing makeup if I'm just going to see a non-gold class movie.|
So that was my simple day to night eye makeup look. If you want a more dramatic night look then more black eye shadow can easily be added, as well as more mascara and false lashes. Switching the bottom liner to something other than black (such as purple or teal) would also give the eyes a fun pop of colour. In the future I think I'll give the colour pop a try. So what do you think? Should I bother attempting to film a tutorial or does this post explain how to do it well enough?
