When I watched Wicked, as I previously shared HERE, I was thinking of what makeup look should I go for. I had to go to MAC’s Greening event early in the afternoon, then go straight to an early dinner before watching Wicked. It was a whole day affair. Should I go for a light makeup first then retouch before the show? Or just go all out? I’m quite sure a lot of ladies out there have encountered the same dilemma at one point. For those who go to the office, what’s a safe makeup look that can go for day to night?
Since I knew I didn’t have the time to retouch, I just went for a day to night makeup. Here’s the look:
For my eyes, I went for semi-smoky eyes. I used darker shades of red and brown, which I also used in my lower lash line for my eyes to pop. I concentrated the deep black brown shadow on the lower half of my lids and blended it upwards. I made it very subtle to avoid looking so made up during the day. This eye shadow trick can be worn in the office too.
I made everything else simpler. I skipped the contour and went for highlighter instead. I used brown lipstick, which can be used for day and night. If you wish to glam up the look even more, you can change the lippie to a darker shade.
