AM To PM – Easy Makeup Looks

Easy Makeup Looks For Daytime And Evenings:

Whether it’s a laid back lunch or a formal cocktail do, these easy make-up looks promise to leave you looking your best.

Daytime Look

1. Daytime Drama: For Smooth Fair Complexions

Clear, smooth skin with a touch of color is the best way to look good in natural light. Get both by first applying foundation lightly with your fingers and concealing any imperfections, then sweeping a peachy-pink eye shadow over your eyelids (avoid shimmery formulations – they look too “done” for the day).

Finish by dusting a soft-pink blusher on the apples of your cheeks and using your index finger to dab a soft pink lipstick on your lips – for a more natural finish.

Evening Makeup

2. Evening Glamour: Understated Elegance

Evening dos call for make-up that will get you noticed – but isn’t over-the-top. So spike your foundation with a tiny bit of illuminating lotion, then line your eyes with black kohl. Add an element of surprise by blending first black, then bronze shadow over lids. To ‘hold” the look, apply two coats of mascara.

While ruby or wine lips spell instant evening glamor, the color can sometimes look too strong. A subtler way to wear the hue – blend it with a nude-colored lipstick. Finish with a sweep of rose-colored blusher and you’re set to dazzle.

Day Makeup Colors

3. Daytime Drama: For Wheatish Complexion

The one color that’s perfect for day wear and looks great on wheatish complexions? Brown! Line your eyes with a dark brown eye pencil (for a natural effect, “wiggle” your pencil on the lash line rather than just drawing a straight line), then sweep a taupe eye shadow over lids.

Line your lips with a skin-colored lip liner, but don’t fill them in with a plain brown lipstick. Instead mix the brown with a light pink for a younger, more flattering hue. Finish by applying a pink blusher for a youthful look.

Gold-Hued Makeup

4. Evening Glamour: Heavy Makeup For Special Evenings

Heavy metal may not be your choice of music, but it’s the prefect pick when it comes to creating a special look for the evening. Join the gold rush by first using a black eyeliner to draw a slim wing on your upper lid, extending the color past the outer corners, then dusting a gold-hued eye shadow over the lids.

Apply a nude or bronze-colored lipstick on your lips and – if you’re feeling daring – sweep a bit of gold shadow over cheekbones and brow bones for a glamorous sheen.
