How to apply day to night make-up

How to apply day to night make-up

Transform your look from subtle to smoking in a few simple steps by tweaking your day make-up.


Step 1: Smokey eyes


Use a soft kohl liner along the lash line and smudge the colour upwards with your fingertips. To create that sought-after smokey eye in a flash, we love Magic’s instant eyeshadow r45. Just press against the eyelid for four seconds, wipe gently across and voila! Instant shadow perfection.

Step 2: Lovely lashes

‘Forget mascara,’ says make-up maven Linda da Silva.‘Adding more coats onto dried mascara will only cause it to clump and crumble.’ Instead, invest in a pair of false lashes that you can whip on and off in a flash. Apply using a pair of tweezers for precision, and remember – practice makes perfect – so don’t give up on the first try.

Step 3: Clever contouring

Use concealer under the eye and to cover blemishes. Sweep bronzer up along cheekbones towards temples, across the forehead and lightly onto the chin. ‘You can also use a lighter shade,’ says Linda, ‘to highlight the top of cheekbones and bridge of nose, or on the inside corners of the eye for a dewy look.’

Step 4: Luscious lips

‘If you’re drawing attention to the eyes, play down the lips with a natural or pinkish coloured gloss,’ advises make-up artist Melissa Van Zyl. You could also use a pretty lip stain for a lasting effect, or a long-wearing lip colour in nude or buff.

Step 5: Ready to go

‘Pin hair up into a low bun,’ suggests Melissa, ‘or twist it round, pinning as you go to create a messier look with delicate wisps.’ Glam it up with a bejewelled or sparkling hair accessory, then finish with a spritz of your favourite evening fragrance and get ready for a night to remember…

Tip: When playing up the eyes with darker shadows, keep brows gentle and undefined to avoid looking too topheavy.

I will remember the step 2 "Forget mascara". I was having a tough time putting a mascara and it also stains on under the eye. I will start investing on a good mascara though. thanks for this article, informative!
