Simple Day-to-Night Makeup: From Delicate to Dazzling  

Learning how to create a simple day-to-night makeup look can make celebrating the holidays even more fun. If you’re going from the office to a party, you don’t have to run home to create a dazzling evening look. All you need is a few makeup products and professional quality brushes that fit neatly in your purse. Then it’s easy to transform your look anywhere you can find a mirror and good lighting.


Skin Care First

Start with an exfoliated, clean, freshened, moisturized skin. Check out our Basic Skin Care Sets to create a twice daily routine to see Believably REAL Results. Be sure to allow your moisturizer to fully absorb before you begin your day-to-night makeup look.


Choose your favorite Foundation Formula in your perfect shade. Ask your L’BRI Independent Consultant for samples. Use the NEW! Foundation Brush to create a flawless finish. It’s all in the wrist. For sheer coverage, use a sweeping motion, moving the Foundation Brush back and forth across your face. For medium coverage, create small circles as you work from the center of your face out toward your jaw and hairline. Maximum coverage requires short, precise stippling motions. Remember to blend well. Click here to see our Foundation pro-tips.


Start at the highest part of the brow. Use the thin, detailed point at the top of the triangular tip of the NEW! Perfect Eyebrow Pencil to make hair-like strokes in the direction of hair growth. Be sure to fill in sparse areas and create symmetry. Then use the same tip to fill in the inner part of your brow with the same hair-like strokes. Use the spoolie to brush hairs into place.


The NEW! Trio Contour Compact includes a blush shade perfect for every skin tone. Apply blush to the apple of your cheeks using a fluffy Blush Brush from the 5-Piece Brush Set. Blend well toward your hairline.


The Holiday Exclusive! Enchanted Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette includes both matte and metallic finishes to create a variety of gorgeous eye looks. For a daytime look, use a fluffy eyeshadow brush to apply shade 1 to the entire eyelid and blend well. Use the same brush to apply shade 5 to the outside corner of the eyelid. Blend well.


Apply a single coat of Xtreme Volume Lash Primer assuring every lash is well coated. Then, apply a single coat of Xtreme Volume Mascara working from root to tip across your lash line.


Choose your favorite soft or natural shade of Lipstick or Lip Glaze to create the delicate aspect of your day-to-night makeup look. 


Touch-Up Your Foundation

Be sure to use moisturizer to rehydrate the areas on your face that have become dry throughout the day before touching up your foundation. With the New! Foundation Brush practice the same techniques you used in the morning on areas where redness, uneven skin tone, or enlarged pores show through. Click here to see our Foundation Pro Tips.

Bring Out Your Brows

For an eye-catching party brow look start at the highest part of the brow. Use the thin point of the NEW! Perfect Eyebrow Pencil to outline the entirety of your brows using short strokes. Then use the broader tip to fill in and define your brows. Use the triangular point to add hairlike detail to the innermost part of each brow. Use the spoolie to blend while brushing hairs up and out. Click here to see our Pro Eyebrow Tips.

Enhance Your Features: Contour and Highlight

Use the NEW! Trio Contour Compact to apply Contour Powder (the darker shade) using the angled end of the Contour and Highlight Brush to the areas indicated on the diagram in brown. This technique can help downsize a large forehead, define cheekbones, and give the appearance of an angular jawline. Blend well.

Use a Powder Brush to touch-up blush on the apples of your cheeks, then blend toward your hairline.

Illuminate and brighten your complexion using the round end of the Highlight Brush. Apply Highlight Powder (lighter shade) to the top of the cheekbones and outer edges of the brow bones as indicated on the diagram in gold.

Emphasize Your Eyes

Calling attention to your eyes is at the heart of your day-to-night makeup transformation. Use the HOLIDAY EXCLUSIVE! Enchanted Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Palette to apply shade 2 on your eyelid to create a deep sparkle. Then, use shade 6 to darken the crease of your eye and blend well. Use shade 4 to highlight your brow bone and inner eye.

The Glide On Gel Eye Liner helps create an easy cat eye. Simply draw a strong, continuous line across the top of your lashes pulling it out slightly out and up beyond the edge of your eye. Connect the line to the corner of your eye to make a small triangle, then fill it in. Line your bottom lashes just to the midpoint.

Refresh Your Lashes

The staying-power of Xtreme Volume Primer ensures your lashes will still look long, full, and thick, even at the end of the day. You may want to apply new coats of Xtreme Volume Mascara for a more dramatic look.

Add a Bold Lip

Complete your day-to-night makeup look with a bold Lipstick or Lip Glaze shade that compliments your outfit.
