The Difference between Day and Evening Makeup

Makeup is a fun way to enhance your best features and make you look beautiful.

Whether you are going on a big date or just spending a day running errands, make up makes you look and feel glamorous. There are so many different colours and products on the market, you can achieve a variety of looks for both day and evening.

What is the difference between day and evening makeup? Well, when applying makeup, you always need to take into consideration the amount of light you will be exposed to. The more light that will be in your environment, the more subtle your makeup needs to be or else you will end up looking overdressed.

Day makeup needs to be subtle and balanced. Neutral shades work best because they are subtle yet still define and enhance your features. If you have a feature you would like to focus on, you can wear colours that are a little bolder. Just remember not to overdo it. For example, black eyeliner is a great way to enhance your eyes, as long as you apply it with a light touch and keep the rest of our eye makeup more subtle. If the line is too thick or too dark, natural sunlight of florescent lights will make your eye makeup look thick and artificial.

Evening makeup can be more dramatic, especially if you are attending a party or function where the lights will be dim. Don’t be afraid to wear bold colours and experiment with new products. If you love to wear the latest makeup trends, this is the best time to wear them. Pick your best feature and wear the boldest colours. If you love your eyes, wear two coats of mascara and bold eyeliner. Your evening lipstick shade can also be bolder than your daytime lipstick shade. However, even though you can wear darker colours and a more dramatic look in the evening, it is possible to overdo.

Day makeup and evening makeup differ because you can wear bolder colours and a more dramatic makeup look in the evening. If you need help choosing colours and looks for different occasions, consult with a makeup artist or other expert for advice.
