Wedding Makeup: Day to Night
June 20, 2016
Many brides like to wear a different wedding dress to the ceremony and reception, but a much more affordable option for changing up your look is to switch up your makeup. Taking your look from day to night is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
- Swap your lipstick. We’ve all heard the phrase “your lips but better,” and that’s exactly the type of shade that’s perfect for a daytime ceremony. Keep your reception lipstick natural with a midtone, warm rose or a pink mauve for a subtle change, or really give them something to talk about with a rich wine hue or deep, cool red.
- Add darker colors to your eyes. To amp up your eye makeup, add an espresso brown or charcoal grey to the outer corners of the eye and blend outward to create a smoky effect and a seamless color transition. Add this same shade to the lower lashline with a smudge brush, and pop on a pair of false lashes for that extra oomph.
- Contour your face. For your day look, add a dewy flush to your cheeks with cream blush and a subtle highlight with an illuminator. For your night look, add depth to your features by applying a contour powder just below the cheek bones and along the hairline. Bronzer can look different depending on the lighting, so it’s best to use a powder specifically designed for contouring that’s on the cooler side
