My Style: Nighttime makeup

February 3, 2015

This is Part Two of my Loxa Beauty Review, My Makeup Style. Loxa Beauty is an ethical online shop where you can get all of your salon products sent straight to your door. And not just any beauty products – we’re talking high-end, best of the best beauty products.

In Part One I shared my celebrity inspiration for my daytime look, so why not keep this train moving right along. My nighttime makeup celebrity is Jennifer Lawrence. I love her looks on the red carpet and would say our nighttime makeup look tends to be very similar in style.

 

Even though this look is way more makeup than what I wear during the day, it still feels “natural” to me. I’m a big fan of a dark eye with nude lip at night, so my nighttime makeup routine typically looks like this: overall face base, light bronze powder, under eye concealer, liquid eyeliner, pencil eyeliner, 2 shades of eyeshadow, mascara, brow pencil, lipliner, and lipstick.

Here’s what I picked out from Loxa for my nighttime look:

LIPLINER – Sormé Smearproof Lipliner, color: Baby Doll

I really liked this lipliner in both quality and color. I used it to outline my bottom lip only and then put (my own) nude lipstick on both lips. The liner stayed on well throughout the entire night (this includes dinner!) and the color was just enough to help bring out some shape with the nude lipstick. I have really come to love lighter shades of lipliner and will sometimes even forego the lipstick and just use some light liner for color.

EYELINER – Sormé Jet Liner Precision Liquid Eyeliner, color: Slate

This liquid eyeliner was AWESOME. Not only did it stay on throughout the night, but the color was exactly what I’d been looking for. I used it on the top eyelid only and then put (my own) pencil eyeliner on the bottom/under my eye, smudging to blend. Having previously used black liquid eyeliner, I found it was too harsh and cat-eye looking for me so this time, by using the Slate color on the top, with eyeshadow just above it, and my own black pencil liner on the bottom, it was just the balance I wanted.

So what about you guys?? Do your daytime and nighttime makeup routines differ drastically or are they pretty much the same? Are you adventurous when it comes to new products or do you tend to stick with what you know?

  • Gorgeous!! and you look so much like JLaw!! Crazy similarities 🙂 xo

    • Thank you! 🙂 People would tell me this all the time (really only when I did my makeup this way) and I never saw it until I did a side-by-side. If only I had her acting abilities too! 😉

  • Whoa, you look like J.Law. crazy cool!
    My beauty routine is as follows—>
    Wash my face, but not with any actual beauty product because that makes it break out
    Lotion, again not any beauty brand because it too makes it break out
    Eyelash curler to pump them lashes up then Cover Girl Lash Blast
    Chap-Stick brand chapstick and if I am feeling bold a swipe of my Clinique freebie lip chubby thing I got on Black Friday.
    I never ever wear foundation because I feel like my face has been stuck in a mold and I will sometimes wear an eye shadow but rarely.
    Pretty boring but it works for me. 😉

    • I was JUST talking to my mom about how a lot of face washes make my face break out! Have you tried Bert’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes? It’s my absolute fave. (The cucumber/sage) I love the Clinique lip chubby thing too! 🙂

      • I have not. I will have to look I to them – thanks

        • ps Brittany- I am unable to comment on your blog posts. I receive an email back saying it did not go through to your email address?!

          • I think its because it waits for my approval. I will change it in the AM when I am on a real computer- thanks!!

  • You look gorgeous! This is remarkably similar to my “everyday.” I’m a big fan of the rose color of the lipliner you’ve featured here; I actually have a similar color that I use to fill in my entire lip (might sound weird, but then again I like a really stark matte lip look). I’ve never heard of the brand Sormé before … do I just shop at the wrong places or live under a rock…?

    • It’s such a great color and tends to go with just about everything! (I love the matte lip look too… except in the summer I’ll sometimes just do a clear gloss.) haha!! You do not live under a rock 😉 Or, if you do- I was once there too. I’d never heard of some of these brands until I tried out Loxa. It’s been really fun to try out different ones!

  • Gorgeous!!!! I am horrible with makeup and tend to use the same ol same ol everyday!! I am pretty boring when it comes to beauty stuff! 😉

    • Girl- I’m 30 years old and only recently did I feel like I was getting the hang of what works for me. You’re not boring! It can feel really intimidating to go outside of your usual makeup routine. I still have no idea how to properly apply eye shadow. It may look good when my eyes are open but don’t ever let me close them – it’s a mess. ha!

  • Gorgeous!!!! I am horrible with makeup and tend to use the same ol same ol everyday!! I am pretty boring when it comes to beauty stuff! 😉

  • You are stunning! Wow! I wear a bit more at night than during the day: I’ll contour, do heavier eye makeup, and a deeper lip color.

    • Your make up always looks incredible, Lindsay!! One of these days I need you to tell me how to properly put on eye shadow 😉

      • Thank you! Eye shadow is the topic for my Beauty A-Z post this Thursday! 😉

  • This look seems so do-able. The older I get the less makeup I wear. Probably because I have less time, maybe because I am more confident in my natural beauty. But every so often (like date night) it’s nice to do a little something extra. Love this idea.

    • If I wear any more makeup, I feel like I’m going drag 😉 ha! It does feel fun to do this every now and then though.

    • haha yes 😉 People used to tell me all the time and I never saw it!! (Until Christian had me do a side by side photo and then I kinda saw it) Thank you, Kel 🙂

  • I love the nude lip/dark eye combo. I used to wear bright lips more often, but it’s so high maintenance. 😉

    • It’s my absolute fave. Bright lips really can be high maintenance, ha!! I’m always worried it’s all over my face, and then you have to reapply, etc etc etc.

  • Lovely!! I do dark eyes and nude lips too – I very rarely wear colors on my lips actually. You are such a natural beauty so why would you ever cover it up with more / heavy makeup than this!? 🙂

    • 🙂 I’m totally smiling over here. Thank you. I don’t feel like myself when I wear tons of makeup so I just don’t do it.

  • Your look is gorgeous. Morning or night. I love the lip liner. I think it’s a perfect color for you!! I’ve been searching for a deep nude lip liner and I really like this one. I need to look into it.

    • You are SWEET! I love the lip liner color too. I didn’t use a ton of the liner and would say it’s more of a pink than a nude. I’m searching for a deep nude color too! (Haven’t checked out Loxa’s other colors yet)

    Gorgeous!!! I love the tips. I think my “make-up routine” lasts about 4-5 minutes. Wish I took more time for me and developing a style, but more often than not, I feel lucky making out the door without dog drool or a nose-wipe across my pants 🙂 Thanks for sharing, pretty lady!! xo

    • aw! haha! Well yeah, I mean most days I don’t wear much (if anything) but when I do make the time for it, it feels pretty special! 😉 (And I’m pretty positive you look beautiful, even with dog drool and nose wipe across your pants, Liz!)
