Transition Into Autumn: Day to Night Olive Smokes Makeup Tutorial
After given thought, I realized it is simply IMPOSSIBLE to have a transitioning series without the master of transition itself, that being ONE dawn to evening makeup look consisting of one face, few products, two makeup looks, and one MAJOR rush! Day makeup is much trickier handling wise than night itself interestingly as broad daylight emphasizes fine lines, patchy skin, and harsh clashing hues while nighttime illuminates features, this is why you love bunnies have a Lillee :). Though I’d love too throw another neutral look your way, I wanted to PROVE color can be wearable, even green my friends! For those unaware, or new to this idea, day to night makeup essentially means you put on a full face in the morning, pack the same eyeshadow pallet, perhaps some falsies and a change of lipstick in your purse, then reapply at nighttime for whatever event you might have scheduled. I personally LOVE the concept, however it does have its downfalls! For example, if done incorrectly, shadow application can turn powdery, or can feel heavy, going along with that same idea, this is WHY I have not included a transitioned face look for those wondering ahead of time– I keep my glow vibrant, and my face set daily thus no touch ups were needed on that side of town! Do be noted MANY bloggers associate nighttime looks with heavy blush, heavy contouring and all of the above, I do not, this is #thaeyeballqueen’s interpretation. Hope this can be of help to those in need of unusual everyday looks with a twist!

Ever hear someone say, or comment on social media posts, “imagine what that makeup looks like in real life, better yet up close?” If not, now ya’ have! The relevance of this comment ties closely into the standards of Instagram makeup, and real life makeup. Strong glows, arched brows, heavily coated faces, the list goes on! Point is, while your skin might look dazzling on camera, in real life it more than likely blinds tiny bacteria floating around you, and emphasizes your pores to no end, there is such things as TOO MUCH, which is why for a sleek glow I chose Laura Mercier’s Matte Radiance powder in Highlight 1. I’m one to enjoy a glowy finish that has natural properties behind it, especially in broad morning daylight! The product was dusted across the high points of my face (cheekbones, bridge of nose mainly), gracefully, with a Mac Duo-Fibre 159 brush. Though not long wearing, the Wet N’ Wild Lip Gels hold my heart, I love em’! This Too Shall Glass holds wonderful shimmer and color for up to one and a half hours, but yields a stunning and unique color accenting olive tones well (eye makeup, helllloooo). Setting your skin should be the FIRST thing on your mind once your eye makeup is completed, seriously! Without a proper setting, you’ll be sitting there all night in either your car or the bathroom trying to fix creases, lost coverage, and broken up appearances. I chose the Nars Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder paired with Mac’s Prep + Prime Fix+, this power duo is assured a good 7+ hours ;)!
