How To Amp Up Your Makeup Look For Nighttime

Just in time for your Friday night, let’s talk about how to amp up your makeup look! The short story is that my dear friend, Amy, and I recently got ready together for a Dierks Bentley show in Nashville. Amy is admittedly not the biggest makeup guru, so she asked for some of my assistance on taking her makeup look from day to night. If you have heard Amy on the Bobby Bones Show in the mornings, you know she is hilarious, so the night of makeup lessons had me giggling like crazy.

When I think of “nighttime” makeup looks, I immediately think dark and smokey or sparkly. Obviously the light is low and you still want your makeup to be seen so these are these easiest ways to do that. Since I just did a simple sparkly eye in my New Year’s Eve tutorial, I knew I could easily teach Amy how to do it herself. Here is our quick video of how to amp up your look for a night out on the town, as well as all of the links to the products we used!

Here is the breakdown of what we did. Click the name of the product to shop!

Using your finger, pat this eyeshadow over the entire lid up to your crease.
