11 Oct Day to Night
Let’s face it, we’re busy women. Whether you spend the day at the office or at the playground chasing kids, you have limited time to freshen your look after a long day. If you’re heading right home, no problem. But sometimes it’s right from the office to dinner or a party. Here at Interlocks, we are asked that all the time: what do WE keep in our makeup bags to help make the transition seamless, and most of all speedy!
Lipstick – Don’t re-invent yourself here. If there’s a particular shade that is your “go to” for daytime wear, then look for a similar shade only slightly darker for evening. Try them to be sure. They don’t have to be the same brand, just the same hue. A good example is Paula Dorf’s Sheer Lip Color, in Pretty, for daytime wear, then at night switch to NARS Satin Lipstick in Afghan Red.
Add some shimmer with Diamonds and Pearls from Paula Dorf. We recommend adding this to any lip color for some evening intrigue.
To add glow to your complexion, our Makeup Artists recommend Becca’s Luminous Skin Foundation. It’s a sheer moisturizing foundation that will help to brighten your skin even after the longest of days. It’s the perfect refresher or touch-up for your face as you head out for the evening.
Night is all about glamour and we love the look of a dramatic eye. Punch up the look of your daytime makeup by lining the wet rim of your lower eye. We like Soft Touch Shadow Pencil from NARS. It is long-wearing, plus has versatile functionality to shade the lid, line, or highlight the eye. Use it to smoke out the upper lid for easy blending, or layer with a powder shadow for increased color intensity. If you really want to add some va va voom, use the Glitter Pencil also from NARS. It’s available in many chic shades infused with glitter to illuminate eyes like never before. We also like to use it on cheeks or décolleté.
These are our “cosmetic staples” – the items that seem to always be in our bags. We’d be happy to help you pick out the right shades and supplies for your very own “day to night” transformation. Feel free to stop in and consult with one of our trained Makeup Artists about quick touch-ups that can make all the difference when going from the office to dinner.
