from day to dinner

bb day to dinner3.jpgi thought i would do a quick post on how i take my makeup from day to night. ¬†as you’ll see, i’m veeeeery simple especially with my daytime makeup, but i still like to make it a little fun for nighttime!¬†bb day to dinner1.jpgdaytime face //¬†

on this particular day, i was finally over a pretty bad acne breakout, so i was really digging my bare skin. ¬†i put on the bare minerals correcting concealer over my remaining hyper pigmentation and a swipe of rimmel santa rose blush on my cheeks. ¬†i got this blush while in europe this winter, but you can find it online at feel unique! ¬†it’s the prettiest sheer pinky peach with a slight glow. ¬†perfect for a blush-phobe like me. ¬†i used my trusty elf blush brush to apply.¬†bb day to dinner2.jpgdinner face //¬†

for my dinner face, i started with a bit more concealer and blush, really just to touch up what had faded during the day.  for a little shimmer i pulled out my favorite pacifica mystical supernatural palette.  these shadows are so soft and pigmented, i would compare them very closely to lorac shadows.  the shades in this palette are stunning Рand can you believe i use them all?!  for this night i blended the two lightest shades all over the lid and slightly into the crease, but not too high up, with a mac 217.  i also smudged that peachy-bronzey shade on my lower lash line using the bobbi brown smudge brush.  i curled my lashes with the surratt curlers but decided to forgo mascara since this was a pretty lightly toned look.  i dabbed a touch of kosas stardust on lips and called it a night! bb day to dinner4.jpgbb day to dinner selfie.JPGi apologize for this very awkward selfie.  what can you do?!
