Day to Night Makeup Tips Part 2/2
Lisa Sim: Hi this is Lisa for WatchMojo.com and so we’re going to be doing the Day to Night make-up. Amanda got her day make-up going on. Now we’re going to talk about what we’re going to do for the evening.
So we’re going back to into quad palette. We’ve already done the base shape; we’re going to pick this one up; we’re going to apply it in the outer corner enclosed lately. And we’re just going to plop it in there. Open, and that just got that little bit of extra depth into the crease.
I'm going to go into this one. It’s called Taupe Shimmer; this is a really universal color. It works on everybody; it gives a little bit of a drama without trying too hard. You’re not looking like a Vegas showgirl or something. And I'm just going to press it on. Now you can use this whether dry, believe it or not. When you use it wet, it has an intense color—more dramatic, longer lasting, more shine comes out of it.
Filling the entire lower lid; what is your lower lid? It’s your lash line to the hollow of your eye. And it’s blended towards the brow bone, and that’s it. We’re going to take out the other end, which is the small mini side, and we’re going to go back into the Taupe Shimmer---at a corner, towards the middle, and we can even drag it a little bit further in—give it a little bit more drama; it’s going to contour the eye a little bit more.
Now what we can do is we take eyeliner sealer. This is the fun part. I'm going to take a drop of this; I'm going to go back with the large size; pick up the Taupe Shimmer again enclosed lightly and this is just going to give that extra pump. And we’re just really adding this along the lash line. We don’t need to put this all over the crease.
I'm going to pick-up the small in; we’re going to go into the Brown Derby. This is going to act like a liner now. Rule of thumb, when it comes to taking your shadow and turning it into eyeliner. If you use a lot liquid, it’s going to be very much like a liquid liner. If you use a little bit of liquid, you make a little paste, it becomes like a cake liner.
What we didn’t introduce last time—for the natural look was—you know, black eyeliner. But everybody’s got black eyeliner, agreed?
Lisa Sim: Okay. So what I'm going to have you do us looking straight up. I'm going into the inner eye. This is the number one rule of thumb for like that sexy, smoky, come here, kind of look.
I'm using the side of the pencil. First is the tip of the pencil; it goes on much thinner, it does a finer line. Turn it around the end, close lightly. It’s a smudgier so it’s like “Yeah, you have a built-in tool”.
How do you make your darks look darker? Put something light next to it. So we go back to Candle Light. I need the arch of the brow; in her corner, start a little highlight in the corner of the under eye even to brighten; and along the top of the cheek bone.
Now what I didn’t use in your day look was one of the shimmer powders. Shimmer powders are really dangerous for day time because you got bright light; and it’s just like—you’re going to be talking to somebody and all that you’re going to notice is like all the shimmery stuff all over your face.
So I'm going to apply this directly on top of where we—or you put Candle Light. So light it on top of lightly. And instantly it gives an extra lift to the arch. And this is going to catch more light on the inner corner of the eye. That’s going to make a nice contrast for the smoky part of the eye. So this is a specialty product—the Liquid Crystals. It’s like a vegetable starch with liquefied crystals in it and just acts like millions of mirrors on the skin. It blurs imperfections that make everything look dewy and glossy and humid. Not bad.
So we’re going to take a little drop and apply it with my fingertips. So this is acting as a highlighter. Please don’t use like lip gloss or something like that on your skin—you know, to create this effect. Really use something that is designated for the skin itself.
So we’re back to Primrose; we’d use this on the apples of the cheeks; we’re going to take it now and we’re going to do it more in the contour. Contour is basically “Where is the hollow” its in the middle of my ear and that’s like the line. So we’re just going to pick the top of the cheekbone.
We can take this color as well for the eyes. I'm just going to lift up a little bit and I'm just going to run this in the crease towards the brow bone; and just gives a little bit of warmth—it’s really versatile in that way.
And the last place that we can actually use this is on your lips. This is an all natural product—there’s no talc in it. So why I'm putting this on your lips, do you know why? It’s a base. So you don’t get that wringer on a lip, I don’t know if you know what I'm talking about. But you know when you do a pencil and you do the contour, and then you have your lipstick and your lip gloss, and you’re talking, you’re having a good time, you look at yourself, and you got that wringer around the lip—that is so rotten.
Now we’re going to the Sand Stone—neutral lip pencil, static mouth, we go with that little—like half shade deeper than our own lip. It’s going to look fuller; they’re going to look a little bit bigger.
Now the color that we started with the beginning for your natural look, was like a very light pitchy gloss with a little bit of shine to it. What we can do in this case is take your darker color, okay? We’re going to do a little combination so everything looks better as a combo.
Okay I just need you to press that together.
So for the finale, super important, more mascara. Who would’ve known? Yeah. The more the merrier.
Alright, thanks a lot Amanda for being my lovely assistant— donating your face for the Day to Night make-up. What I love is that it takes a few products. You can easily go from the office straight to that sink and set afterwards. I think he’s going to like it.
