Day to Night Makeup: Natural and Flawless

We are all busy women. From the moment we wake up in the morning until the time we go to bed, there is never enough time in the day for everything that needs to be done.

Essential day to night makeup tips

If you’re anything like us, the morning routine is always hectic. You need to take your time getting ready for work or school, say goodbye to your family, and race out the door with just enough time to catch your bus. Unfortunately, this usually means that there’s no room in our morning schedule for a full face of makeup. So we’ve pulled together some quick tips on how to transform from day-to-night beauty so you can look great all day long!

For daytime makeup: keep it simple by using concealer under eyes and mascara on lashes. Use bright lipstick in lieu of blush but use lip balm instead of gloss for midday hydration. The goal is for this look not to be too heavy or noticeable.
