Lately I’ve been into Korean makeup, which focuses more in creating a watery moist complexion. This look is all about looking youthful without going overboard. Nothing cakey, no over-contouring or dramatic brows at all. If you want to find out how I achieve this look, please watch my videos or read more below.
Today’s tutorial will be using mostly Tarte Light of the Party palette for my eyes and cheeks. This tutorial is a very simple day makeup look, nothing too fancy. It was a requested look from one of my good friends. Also, this tutorial is my first video tutorial for the year!
We are almost in mid-December, already?! Anyways, most of you must have a lot of parties and events to attend to, so today’s post is a Day to Night Party Makeup Tutorial! This is one way of changing your day makeup to night makeup quickly, and all you need is a lipstick. You can also add a black eyeliner if you prefer, just like what I did for this post, but if you don’t it’s not a big deal.
For this look, I applied falsies just because my real lashes are not that full. You can skip the falsies altogether, I just do it because it looks better in pictures since my real lashes are not full in volume and not curly.
This Day to Night party makeup tutorial is all about creating a strobed-looking skin, nothing too contoured. The eyes are very muted and simple. For the Day look, the eyes are very open and brightened. For the Night look, the focus in on the lips, not too dark but not too bright either.
For the eyes and cheeks, I used my new Tarte Light of the Party palette, and can I just say that I’m loving it?! One of the best neutral palette, in my opinion. The colors are very muted and soft, a lot of matte colors too! Absolutely gorgeous. I’ll do the review for this palette soon!
Also, how you liking my luminous/strobed skin? I just bought Becca Backlight Filter primer, and tested it today. Such a gorgeous primer for strobing. I feel like my skin just glow all over! I applied this primer under my eyes, on top of my cheekbones, on the bridge of my nose, & cupid’s bow. I also applied this primer under my NARS foundation so it doesn’t look too dewy.

How is everyone’s Monday going? The Holiday is approaching real soon, eh?! I wanted to share with you guys this super easy and simple everyday makeup tutorial which can be worn by everyone, especially those who don’t usually wear much makeup. I did 2 version – one with a simple peachy lips, and another with red lips.
I think this look is great for those who prefer a simple no-fuss makeup. Nothing too dark, nothing too bright, but with a bit of colors. This is also a look for those who prefer earthy brown tones over black. I probably would wear this for a brunch (with peachy lips), or even a dinner party (with red lips).
Eyeshadows used in this tutorial are from the Smashbox Full Exposure Palette.
1. I applied MAC Groundwork paint pot on my eyelids using my ring finger.
2. Using a fluffy blending brush, I applied Smashbox Full Exposure palette in M2 above my crease.
3. Using Smashbox bullet crease brush, I applied Smashbox Full Exposure palette in M1 on the outer half of my eyelid.
4. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I applied S1 on the inner half of the eyelid, blending it towards the outer half.
5. I applied S4 on the inner corner of my eyes using Real Technique shading brush (skip this step if you have wide-set eyes).
6. I lined my waterline and tightline using L’oreal Voluminous Smoldering eyeliner.
7. I also applied M7 along my upper lash line using an angled eyeliner brush. I applied this along the outer half of my lower lash line as well.
8. I curled my lashes and applied Maybelline Express Turbo Boost mascara on my lashes.
9. I filled my brows using Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo Powder.
10. I also applied Mata Nona no. 15 falsies.
11. On my face, I applied MAC Pro Long-Wear foundation using Real Technique Expert Face brush.
12. Under my eyes and on my blemishes, I applied MAC Pro Long-Wear concealer. I set my face using CoverFX Translucent powder.
13. On my cheeks, I applied Chanel Blush de Horizon.
14a. (left) For the peachy lips, I filled my lips using MAC Spice lip liner. Then I applied YSL Glossy Stain in Peche Cerra-Colla (27).
14b. (right) I removed the previous lip color, and then applied NYX Monte Carlo on my lips.

Today’s look is more on the softer, romantic, feminine colors. This look is great for first date, or for whoever wants a more natural look. Will work great on brides as well!
I also wanted my eyes to look bright and open, so I skipped the black liner on the waterline. Instead, I opted for a beige eyeliner. If you prefer a more darker version to this, feel free to substitute the dark shadow and eyeliner to black.
For this look, the focus is on the overall appearance. Nothing stands out too much, yet the whole look feels right and if done correctly, people will notice a subtle difference in your face but cannot put their finger why you look so great 😉
FYI, if you’d like to know how I contour, highlight and apply my blush come check the blog out tomorrow 😉
1. I applied Bobbi Brown Rose Gold cream shadow all over the lid using my ring finger.
2. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I applied Urban Decay Toasted eyeshadow on top of the base.
3. Using the same flat eyeshadow brush, I applied Urban Decay Busted eyeshadow on the outer V of the eyes.
4. I used a clean blending brush to blend the edge of UD Busted eyeshadow.
5. Using a small shader brush, I applied UD Toasted on the inner half of the lower lid and UD Busted on the outer half of the lower lid.
6. I lined my waterline using MAC Chromagraphic eyeliner in NC30.
7. I created a slight winged liner along my upper lashline using UD Blackout eyeshadow and an angled eyeliner brush.
8. I used whatever was left on the eyeliner brush to line the outer half my lower lash line (very close to the lashes).
9. I filled my brows in using Shu Uemura brow pencil.
10. I curled my lashes and applied L’oreal Double Extender Curl mascara on both top and bottom lashes.
11. I applied my face powder right underneath the brows.
12. For the face, I applied MUFE HD Foundation using a foundation brush.
13. Under the eyes, I applied YSL Touche Eclat.
14. For the contour, I applied MAC Shadowy.
15. On the cheeks, I applied Benefit Hervana blush.
16. On the lips, I applied YSL no. 17 lipstick lightly using a lip brush.
Who says we have to stick to black and grey in creating a smoky eyes look? Brown gives a more softer approach, and definitely warmed up the face. Brown smoky eyes will look great on any eye color, especially blue and green! In this tutorial, I layered a few different browns to warm up the eyes and it’s okay if it is messy! It gives that bedroom eye vibe, without looking like a panda ;). If you’re having difficulty doing a smoky eyes makeup using black, try using brown, it’s more forgiving.
Funny enough, quite a few of brides also like this type of makeup, especially for those who prefer a more natural look. I think this look goes with anything! Bridal, prom, date, night-out. It’s so simple and easy without being too overpowering.
1. Using a flat eyeshadow brush, I applied MAC All That Glitters all over the lid.
2. Using a fluffy blending brush, I applied MAC Mulch on the outer corner of the lid.
3. Using a small shader brush, I applied MAC Sketch on the outer V and crease of the eye.
4. Using a small fluggy blending brush, I dipped the brush very lightly into MAC Bronze eyeshadow and blended it on the crease.
5. I used a clean blending brush to blend the edge of the crease.
6. Using an angled eyeliner brush, I applied MAC Woodwinked on the inner corner of the lower lid and applied MAC Mulch on the outer corner of the lower lid.
7. I lined my waterline using MAC Chromagraphic eyeliner in NC30.
8. Along the upper lashline, I applied MAC Smolder eyeliner and smudged it using a pencil brush. I also added Smashbox Blackout eyeshadow along the line to set it using an angled eyebrow brush.
9. Using a clean blending brush, I blended the edge of the outer V to erase the harsh line.
10. I filled my brows in using Chanel brow pencil in Mistre.
11. I curled my lashes and applied Maybelline Volume Express Turbo Boost mascara on the upper and lower lashes.
