Romantic to Regal make-up

Let's talk about transforming a make-up look from day to night! This was the challenge I received for my final assessment at the Face Place Institute of Aesthetics. I was given two hours to create a soft bridal look then transform it to a glam look for the reception. Today I'll be showing you how I achieved both looks, plus my tips for going from day to night. We'll be playing with some of my fave products, and I'll be sprinkling in a few tips throughout as well!

Look #1 required a soft, romantic look for a daytime wedding. So I did, muted tones on the eyes, a nude glossy lip, and soft matte base.
