Day to Night Transformation

Remember how I told you that I had a great Day to Night post coming, born from my 8 year anniversary date? Well here it is! My husband and I left in the morning for whole day of different activities in LA. I got ready in the morning and was able to easily and quickly transform my makeup and hair into the perfect evening look.

First, let’s talk about hair. Guys it could not have been easier! I started the morning by curling my hair quickly with my flat iron method to create nice loose curls. I threw some bobby pins in my purse and quickly twisted my hair into a messy side bun for my evening look and voila! Super easy, sassy by day, elegant by night!
Secondly, let’s talk about makeup. When it comes to working out a look that is good for the daytime but that can be dramatized for the evening, I always rock my purple eyeshadow look. Purple is a lot more neutral than you may think!  It is incredibly forgiving, beautiful on most skin tones, and lovely day or night. All you need to complete this look a a great purple/plum tone makeup palate. You can find one at any target and all the major makeup companies have their own version. I am using the Milani Runway Eyes set. And with this set you have a lot of options depending on how dark you want to go. Here is my method for creating the perfect Purple eye for everyday

Now for the nighttime look! This was easy, easy, easy! In fact I did it all in the car 🙂 Since I was out all day I obviously needed to touch up my rouge and add a little tinted finishing powder to take away the shine. I added some false lashes, thickened up my liner for a dramatic cat eye look, and applied a great red lipstick! My husband was fascinated by the whole transformation (and yes I even changed my dress in the car…haha) and he took pictures of the whole ordeal!

So that’s how it’s done people! Pretty simple and so fun to head out for the day and rock a couple different looks! And even though I blogged about my look for all of you readers, it was all about looking my best for my man! He loves me no matter what, but I still get the flutters when he tells me I am beautiful 🙂 Hope you found some useful tips!  And here are some deets on the clothing ensembles:
