Easy Ways To Transform Your Daytime Makeup to Dramatic Nighttime Glam

It's always nice to have a loud night out with your best friends after a long, busy work day. If you only have a few minutes to spare before heading out, don't hurry to wash your morning makeup off just yet! With these quick and simple makeup tips you'll have an opportunity to transform your minimalistic daily look to a sexy evening makeup almost in no time.


Begin the day with subtle, everyday makeup that consists of neutral mattes on your lids, paired with a pearlescent hues in the inner corners.

Soft Neutrals

Soft Pinks

A few coats of brown mascara will make your eyes look awakened yet soft and daytime appropriate. Complete the look with the perfect nude lipstick.

Upgrade your basic everyday makeup by transforming your daytime look into dramatic night makeup - it's a lot easier than you think!

Evening Drama


Shimmering Violet

Intensify the eyes with textured shimmering eyeshadow which instantly adds luminosity and glam appeal.

Play around with jewel toned hues which always make everything more fun and festive!  Layer darker and opaque shades for a more dramatic effect. Forest green, bronze and metallic finishes look especially beautiful at night.


Fresh-looking skin with minimum to no contouring and highlighting is always the best option for work, therefore you can easily transform this canvas into a three-dimensional makeup look for nighttime.

Toasty Contour

Golden Glow

Intense Glow

Swipe your favorite contouring powder on the sides of your cheeks and jawline and  and buff the color out with a soft brush. You can also use a bit of translucent powder to mute harsh lines of the contouring. This will add dimension and depth to your look.

For an instant glow up, use bronzer, to warm up the complexion and apply to the outer perimeters of the face. For the quickest way to take the spotlight, go with highlighter! From creamy to pearlescent and iridescent finishes - get your glow on by applying to the highest points of your face (cheekbones, nose bridge, cupid's bow).

Bronzed Glow

Iridescent Glow


Dramatic Liner & Red Lips

Applying bold lip color is probably one the easiest and fastest way to transform your daily makeup look into something more dramatic. Remove your daily nude lip color with a tissue or makeup wipe. Apply a nourishing lip mask to moisturize, renew and soften your lips.

With well-sharpened lipliner, shape your lips and fill them in with your favorite bold lip color - red, berry and pink for a classic evening makeup look or go with trendy hues in violet, blue and chocolate brown for night makeup with a twist.
