How To Take a Look from Day to Night

Hey guys!

Now, I am someone who can spend hours getting ready for a night out. However as I’ve gotten older and the nights out have become more frequent I have cut down my getting ready hours. While I do sometimes enjoy spending half an hour doing my tan, there are other times when there’s simply not enough time. Today I’m going to show you how I would take a look from day to night. I have to apologise for these pictures, I was just about to go out with my family so just quickly got ready and took a few snaps. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to retake and reupload these photos but for now, they will have to do!



Starting off with the outfit, white jeans are a great summer staple. They can, in my opinion, be worn casually during the day or out at night. I paired them with this khaki lace up top from Boohoo, which I have worn both to a party and out shopping. Of course I had to wear my Superstars cause when do I not?


Makeup wise I kept it very simple with BB cream, concealer, bronzer and mascara. The basics in my life! I threw my hair up in a bun and I was good to go (not that I went anywhere like this as I transitioned straight into my next look!)



Adding heels instantly spiced up this outfit. I would probably have worn black heels except that I have no idea where they are, so white had to do. As this is a long sleeve top I didn’t wear a jacket but generally I would go from hoodie to denim jacket. A leather jacket would be a great option but I am yet to purchase one. I added just a few accessories (I’m not really into them to be honest) with this classy black clutch and thick gold bangle.


I think that one of the main things to dress up any make up look is lipstick. After I took these pics I was thinking I should have gone for a red or dark lip but I just got this NYX lip liner so wanted to try it out, though for some reason you can barely see it in this picture! I also put on eye shadow, a bronzy gold look. I fully intended to put on eyeliner, more bronzer and highlighter but I just completely forgot, as I said I was in a rush! Anyway they would definitely help to take a look from cas(ual) to class. Lastly I let my hair down, literally, and tied back the front part to keep it out of my face. And voila from day to night with barely more than a shoe change and some eyeshadow!

Hope you enjoyed, soz again about the pics!
