day to night makeup: vegas edition

Friday, October 7, 2016

Vegas, baby! The words of Joey Tribbiani capture the excitement of Las Vegas perfectly. It's a vibrant place to visit with the bright lights of the strip, the extravagance of each casino, and the endless options for shopping. I've been there twice and can say without a doubt that you never run out of things to do.* is wondering how you would transform your makeup from day to night while on vacation, especially in a city like Las Vegas that combines the glamour of a fast-paced city with the extreme temperatures of the desert. Last time I was there I stayed at The Cosmopolitan and really wanted to draw my day to night makeup look from the shine and sparkle that covers The Chandelier bar. Strung from the ceiling and dripping down several stories to the bar are countless strands of crystals making up the biggest chandelier you've ever seen. The first time I saw it I was blown away. The way it shines when it catches the light inspired my day to night makeup look.

For daytime, I went with a quick and easy look to get you out onto The Strip to explore. Becca's Flowerchild blush is one of my faves and gives enough color to easily take you from day to night. A light-handed addition of Becca's Champagne Pop highlighter to my cheekbones adds some sheen for daytime. To tie it together and add a bit more shimmer I added By Terry's Misty Rock shadow stick on my lids and below my eyes.

For the night transformation, I wanted to add more light catching elements and more color, so I topped up Champagne Pop on my cheekbones and added it to the bridge of my nose, my cupids bow...pretty much everywhere! For my eyes, I pulled out an old favorite, the Cargo Northern Lights palette. Sweeping the light blue Fjord all over my lids for some color and the glittery deep blue Glacier in the outer corner and under my eyes to add the shine, color, and fun of Las Vegas! Finishing it off with a lacquer-like gloss rounds out the light-catching look.
