Day To Night Makeup with Alcone at Home

Even though I love makeup I’ll be honest – I’m inherently lazy when it comes to application and touch ups. I want my makeup to be able to transition from day to night without the need to reapply an entire face of makeup in the process. That’s not too much to ask, is it?
I didn’t think so.
Luckily with Alcone at Home I can customize my own palette with the products I need to transition my look with ease! Gone are the days of carrying a huge makeup bag in my purse (and losing all the caps to my lipstick). Now I can put everything I need in one adorable palette and I’m ready to go! I also never have to worry about my palette being bulky because it’s just slightly larger than my iPhone!

Lately my favorite “Day” look has been a mix of gold, pink and mauve colors on my eyes and Alcone at Home eyeshadow in 4, 5, and 14 are absolutely perfect for this! To recreate this simple (seriously – I’m done in about 3 minutes) look simply put 14, a beautiful beige toned gold, on the lid and then layer 5 and 14, shimmering pink and matte mauve, in the crease until you’ve achieved the amount of definition and contrast that you’re looking for. I chose to blend it out so the result was a wash of color over the lid but you could definitely have a more defined look if that’s what you’re going for. 

I work pretty long hours at the salon so more often than not my coworkers and I will decide last minute to grab dinner or drinks together after work. Call me crazy but I like my makeup to be more defined for a night out, even if it’s low key. I might not be busting out the falsies any time soon for one of these impromptu get togethers but I still want to look appropriate!
Taking my eye makeup from day to night is super easy when I add a little bit of shade 8, a matte chocolate brown, in the crease. This isn’t the most dramatic “evening” look but when I’m needing to go from day/night quickly I find that it’s best to just work with what you’ve got and amp it up a little bit. Like I said – no falsies or super dramatic shadow here! I’m more of a simple “defined crease” girl in situations like this.

To complete my everything palette I typically include a concealer so I can freshen up my complexion and conceal any spots that have come through throughout the day. I also like to include either blush or translucent setting powder depending on the weather. If it’s hot outside I’ll toss in my translucent powder but if it’s cooler out and I don’t need a mattifying effect then I’ll change out the powder for blush to brighten up my complexion. Typically when it’s hot outside I don’t need any additional flush in my cheeks so I tend to skip blush touchups throughout the day. 

Luckily my everything palette can hold 5 square pans and one large pan so I can easily put my eyeshadow, concealer, and whichever larger pan I feel is appropriate all in one place. How is that for convenient?!
