How To Take your Makeup From Day To NIGHT

Hi guys!! I'm attaching my newest "How-to" video! This one is a tutorial on how to take your makeup from day to night!! There are so many ways to do this - so this is probably the first of many versions.

This SUPER easyDay to Night look is using a minimal number of products and tools!! Yay for that! The look is for someone that needs to look polished with a well defined eye for daytime and then has evening plans...a date...a social event - whatever!! Something where you need a QUICK smoky eye!

Watch the attached video for my tutorial on an easy way to take your look from day to SEXY night!! :) Then...see below for a list of key products I used!!

Look #1 - Daytime (After skincare and foundation and brows!)
Concealer - Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Concealer in Medium
Shadows - Estee Lauder Ivory Slipper Satin, Mink (dark brown)
Eye Liner - Estee Lauder Softsmudge Black

Nude LIPS...How to do a flawless Nude Lip and other tricks for applying ...

There are soooooo many versions of a NUDE LIP look that I could share! Here's the first for you - a Nude Pink, using very inexpensive products!! YAY!

A nude lip is maybe not for everyone, but if you love a strong eye or are looking for a more polished natural look, this might be just the look you're after! Nudes can be considered everything from beige tones to pale pinks to gold tones. There's not really a right or wrong way to wear them, because every skin tone is different and not every "nude" works with every makeup routine or use of color!! Shew!!!!

Watch my video below to see a couple of my favorite tricks for accomplishing a nude lip look and a couple of other favorite tricks for creating a polished lip look of ANY kind!! :)
