The super talented Amna Zain from the the powder room shows how to transition from day makeup look to night makeup look.
“Retro from MAC is one of my favorite shades for Autumn/Winter”
Apply a thin layer of moisturiser to the face (tip: focus around the under eye,upperlip area and sides of the nose) Follow it by a pea sized amount of primer only to the areas where pore are most visible ( preferred product: porefessional primer from ‘Benefit’)
Foundation: Apply a thin layer of foundation to the face and neck using a damp beauty blender and build it up if more coverage is required
Tip:use a cream based foundation to keep your skin looking healthy and moisturized during winters
Concealer: dot it on to areas that require more coverage (such as undereyes ,blemishes) and blend with finger tips to maintain coverage
Set the T-zone with powder or apply it to other areas where your skin is most oily.( Rimmel Stay Matte powder)
Contouring: Apply a light brown shade (something with a grey undertone and not too orange) from the tip of the ear to the center of the cheek in the direction of your lips.
This will only create a shadow and give your face a subtle contour effect which is ideal for this day time look
Blush: use a light pink blush to apply to the apples of the cheeks for a soft day time glam.
Highlighter: apply it to the cheek bones,centre of the nose,side of the forehead , inner corners of the eye and chin using a fan brush
Recommended product: Maryloumanizer by The Balm
Lipstick: MAC Runway Hit
Eyes: use a soft brown shade and apply it to the crease using a blending brush (MAC 217)
Step 2: blend the edges using a clean blending brush
Step 3: use a dull gold shade to the lid area using a flat eyeshadow brush
Step 4: line the lashes with a soft black pencil and smudge with a dark brown shade using a pencil brush
Step 5: apply mascara from root to tip covering all lashes
Step 6: use the soft brown shade and apply to the lower lash using a pencil brush and apply a pencil to the waterline (this will make your eyes look bigger)
Darken the blush (use deeper tones of pink) to amp your look up for the night
Lips: For this look I mixed in the shade ‘Rebel’with ‘Mehr’ from MAC and outlined my lips using ‘SOAR’ lip liner from MAC
Step 1: define eyebrows using a brow pencil thats half a shade lighter than your natural brows Preferred product: precisely my brows pencil from ‘Benefit’
Step 2:darken the crease using a deep brown shade and blend in with the previous soft brown shade from Look 1.
Step 3: Apply Rose Gold shade to the lid and top it up with some gold glitter to look party ready this winter.(Vipera loose pigment in shade 145)
Step 4: Top your look up with lashes ( Huda Beauty lashes in Samantha) and reapply mascara
Step 5: do a double winged eyeliner to complete the look and make your eyes appear longer
Step1: apply a deep brown shade to the crease and blend harsh edges
Step2:apply a deep grey shade to the inner lid as well as to the outer lid. And blend the two shades in ‘wiper motion’ starting from the outer corner of the eye and bringing it to the inner corner.
Step 2: reapply the deep brown shade to the crease and blend harsh lines
Step 3: apply a black shade this time on the inner lid and outer lid (on top of the grey shade). Blend in wiper motions again and blend in the deep brown shade into the crease
Step 4: Apply a copper red shade to the centre of the lid ( I used ‘Fling’ from Huda Beauty’s Rose Gold palette’) and blend in between this shade and the previous shades applied to the inner and outer corners of the lid
Step 5: Darken eyeliner and double coat your mascara.
Lips: For this look I used ‘Retro’ from MAC which is one of my favorite shades for Autumn/Winter
