If you read my blog, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of the budget beauty brand Essence cosmetics. So when they contacted me to tell me about their new bloggers ‘day to night challenge’ how could I resist?
With products that start from just a few pounds I can’t fault Essence’s products for when you want to buy great products on a budget, even if money was no object, I’d still be a massive fan on their lipsticks.
With summer evenings spent in beer gardens just around the corner, I’ve created two looks with heading straight from work to the pub in mind.
A super cute nude day time look is just the ticket for work, it keeps your look sleek and professional, but girly at the same time. To create this look you’re going to need these products:
I started the look off with Essence pure skin anti spot moisturizing makeup, which evens out your skin tone and fights spots all in one. Next I used my fingers to apply the cream blush in shade ‘Sweet as a Peach’ for a creamy, dewy look. I brushed the eyeshadow gently over my whole eye and finished off my eyes with the ‘all eyes on me’ mascara. To finish the look off I applied this gorgeous essence nude lipstick in shade ‘wearing only a smile.’
Not a bad daytime look, which only takes 5 products to create!
To ramp up the look for evening, I’ve used the same products as before, but added a few more that you could easily carry in your handbag and created an altogether more smokey and sultry look.
For this you’re going to need:
3D eyeshadow in ‘irresistible caramel cream’, long lasting eye pencil in ‘hot chocolate’, Essence’s eyebrow stylist set, my shade used here is ‘blonde style’ and for a super sultry look I added a splash of Essence XXXL shine gloss In Nude kiss.
I love both these looks and think they’re super for day to night makeup on a budget. The perfect makeup you could carry in your handbag or keep in your locker at work. You can find all the products featured at your local wilkinsons store.
Until Next Time
