Quick Night-Time Makeup

For those of you who are too busy to get into an elaborate makeup routine for a night out, you can fake one in minimal time and with an easy technique. I had an event to attend recently, and being in a hurry as always, I snuck in a few minutes in between taking care of the kids to get all made up. I’m gonna show you what products I used, you don’t need the exact ones, but choose shades that will blend together and suit your skin tone regardless of what color you are wearing; I find earth tones to be the most flattering.

My current favorite lipstick is Ingenuous from Sephora, it is nude and matte and keeps the overall look understated. You can choose to add a colorless lipgloss to your lips to give a bit of shine.

BB Cream instead of foundation to avoid looking cakey, I always go for the light color even when I’m tan, because it gives the face a younger feel.

Wet N’ Wild bronzer instead of blush, this is also a drugstore purchase from the States, in Ticket To Brazil shade.

Shiseido face color enhancing trio, reference OR1, I use the middle color right under the bronzer to visually lift the face.

The best eyeliner I’ve come across is also from Sephora in dark gray, it doesn’t smudge on your top eyelid and doesn’t run under your eyes if you blink, shed a tear, or sweat.

I have light and thin eyebrows so I draw them with this Chanel eyebrow pencil in natural brown, as so not to overpower my features.

These are really old Maybelline eyeshadow palettes in Sunlit Bronze and Enchanted Forest. I’ve had these for years and I use them religiously because the shades suit me so well, and I’m set in my ways so I really can’t accept the fact that I might need new ones!

L’Oreal mascara also for my unfortunately thin and light eyelashes.

Now for the eye routine, it really isn’t hard, draw on the eyeliner without worrying whether its perfect or symmetrical.

Mimic its wing with the brown eyeshadow color while widening the angle and leaving clean space under your brow.

Fill in the gap with gold or lighter brown eyeshadow and blend with your fingers without adding any extra shadow under your brow. Also apply a bit of brown shadow under your bottom lid right underneath the eyeliner for a smokey effect.

You might think that the result will be too strong, but check out how it looked on me. As you can see from my unedited photos, the makeup enhances my features and brings them out while staying simple.
