Today, I have two makeup tutorials for you guys.

First, I’ll be showing you a gorgeous daytime makeup look, and then we’re going to be transforming it into a night time look by making a few changes.

If you’ve been looking for a beautiful night time makeup look and you don’t want to have to completely redo all of the makeup you’ve been wearing in the day, this is for you.

Tools and materials:

  • Primer
  • Foundation
  • Concealer
  • Beauty blender
  • Setting powder
  • Eyeshadow
  • Makeup brushes
  • Mascara
  • Contour
  • Blush
  • Highlighter
  • Lipstick
  • Setting mist
  • Blue eyeliner
  • False lashes
Applying primer

Daytime look

1. Primer

Prep your face using a smoothing primer. This will help to blur out any texture or pores that you have on your skin. 

Applying foundation

2. Foundation

For your base, go in with a powdered foundation.

Apply concealer

3. Concealer

Next, highlight the center of your face with some concealer. This will help to brighten your under-eye area. Proceed to blend it out.

Applying setting powder

4. Setting powder

Set the concealer and bake your under-eye area with some translucent setting powder.

Then set the rest of your face. Then set the rest of your face.

Applying eyeshadow

5. Eyeshadow

Do your eyebrows as you usually would. Then, take a matte peach-toned eyeshadow and apply it all over your eyelid.

Use a fluffy blending brush to achieve a very soft wash of color all over your eyelids. Blend it out up to the crease area.

Applying eyeshadow

Then take a shimmery rose-colored eyeshadow with your fingers.

I find that fingers work best with shimmer eyeshadows. Apply that to your eyelids to intensify them.


To create a soft, smudged-out look, take a dark gray eyeshadow and smudge that over your lash line with a thin brush.


Next, take the peach tone from before and blend that over your lower lash line.

Applying mascara

6. Mascara

Proceed to coat both your upper and lower lashes with mascara.


7. Contour

To add some structure and definition to the face, contour the sides of your face and use a very thin fan brush to contour the sides of your nose.

Applying blush

8. Blush

Use blush to add color to the apples of your cheeks. 


9. Highlighter

Using the same fan brush, highlight the bridge of your nose and the top of your lips.

Also, use some on the inner corners of your eyes.

Applying lipstick

10. Lipstick

To finish off the look, apply some lipstick in a terracotta color.

Applying setting spray

11. Setting spray

Set all of your makeup with some setting mist.

Daytime makeup look

And this is my simple daytime look. It is beautiful and feminine, with soft eyes and rosy lips.

Day to night

Now let’s transform it into a vampy, night time makeup look.

Applying eyeliner

1. Eyeliner

Take a dark blue eyeliner and wing out your liner. Create a very exaggerated liner look.

Applying eyeshadow

2. Eyeshadow

Then you also want to intensify the eye shadow, so take a dark reddish brown shade, intensify the outer V area and blend it into the crease slightly.

Applying eyeshadow

Then take a darker mauve shade and darken out the outer area even more.

Applying eyeshadow

Also, go ahead and touch up on the shimmer shadow.

Adding false lashes

3. False lashes

To add more drama to the eyes, apply some dramatic false eyelashes and also add a double coat of mascara to your lower lashes.

This is really going to open up your eyes.

Applying lipstick

4. Lips

For the lips, I went for a metallic dark red.

Applying highlighter

5. Highlighter

Touch up on your highlighter because, during the evening, indoor lighting will shine onto your makeup.

Go ahead and really intensify that highlight.

Evening makeup look

Day to night makeup

Here we have our finished nighttime look. Compared to our daytime look, the eyeshadow is much darker and more intense, with bold wings and big eyelashes.

The lipstick is also a richer red color. I hope you’ve enjoyed this makeup tutorial and found it helpful!
