Truth: We’re all pretty busy people. From the moment you turn your alarm off in the morning, you’re up and on the move, shimmying between all of the appointments that line your calendar. Between days at the office, meetings, happy hour, brunch, and the occasional date, it’s truly a wonder you’re able to balance it all—especially while trying to do so with a put-together face of makeup.
Since you’re always running from point A to point B, we thought it was about time to come up with a solution for those frenzied makeup applications in the bathroom and the car—you know you’ve been there. The secret to looking good all day long, even when your agenda is jam-packed, is coming up with makeup looks that easily transition from day to night. While certain eye makeup or lip colors may not be considered office appropriate, starting off with a toned-down face allows you to easily translate your look—with a quick touch-up—for whatever the evening has in store. Intrigued? Check out the following 5 summer day to night makeup ideas for inspiration.
When you’re in a time crunch, the last thing you probably want to do is remove your lipstick to reapply a different hue. So, instead of reaching for makeup remover to start the process all over again, be strategic.
During the day…sport a lighter, office-appropriate shade, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips Metallic in Moon Lust. The metallic shimmer is eye-catching enough to tie your daytime look together without being too dramatic of a shade for your 9-5.
At night…keep your lighter lip in place and darken the corners with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips Metallic in Smoldering Eclipse or Liquid Venom. The lighter center fading into darker corners will give the illusion of a fuller-looking pout, while the darker metallic hue will give an edgy air to your nighttime look.
A fully contoured face can look a bit excessive during the daytime, but chiseled cheeks and a slimmer nose are perfectly suited to after work hours.
During the day…rock a fresh faced, no-makeup, makeup look. Lighten your under-eye area, the bridge of your nose, the center of your chin and between your brows with a concealer from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealing and Contour Kit.
At night…break the concealer palette out and sculpt your face with the darkest color to add definition.
Wearing a full cat eye to work may be a bit much, but we all know a cat eye ties any nighttime look together.
During the day…lightly line your lower waterline with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Nude. This can help perk up the look of your face for a fresh feel.
At night…create a graphic eyeliner look by adding a winged cat eye to your upper lids in the color of your choice. Since summer is the perfect time to branch out and sport bright colors, try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Electric Blue or Intrepid Teal.
The last thing you want to do is walk into work with ultra-dark lids—it’s just too dramatic for the daytime. Since you’ll definitely want to add a little luster to your lids by nightfall, create the perfect base in the morning.
During the day…use the L’Oréal Paris Paradise Enchanted Scented Eyeshadow Palette to create a subtle, two-toned eye shadow look.
At night…take your makeup up a notch! Smudge the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Crushed Foils Metallic Eye Shadow in Crushed Stone across your lids and along your lower lash line for a sultry effect.
No nighttime look is complete without voluminous, defined lashes!
During the day…sweep the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara onto your lashes before heading out the door, making sure to toss the tube into your bag for the perfect nighttime pick-me-up.
At night…add an extra coat of mascara to amp up your glam factor.
