I am a big lover of make-up. In fact, there isn’t a single day that goes by when I don’t wear some products on my face. Whether you regularly wear make up or wear it a little less often, one thing is for sure, you will put on your make up before a night out. As busy mums, sometimes the day to night turnaround can be a brief window. With this in mind Boots Natural Collection challenged me to do just that. To take my make up from day wear to evening ready in a few quick easy steps using their products.
The products in the Natural Collection are all just £1.99, which is really amazing value. For me, daytime make-up usually consists of foundation, powder and mascara. For my evening look, I would add eye shadow, brows, eye liner, give my mascara some more va va voom and pop on some lipstick.
I made a little video of how I got on in my challenge.

Day to Evening make-up tricks
Touch up foundation where required
Over the course of the day some redness may have started to show through. So just touch up where necessary; you don’t need to do a full face of foundation. Remember speed is of the essence for this challenge!
Quick brush of powder
Take a couple of seconds to add some powder to take off the shine and give you an even base to work from.
A coat of eyeshadow
Brush on some eyeshadow from lash line to crease, making sure it is blended in nicely.
Add another coat of mascara
Define your lashes and make your eyes pop more for the evening with a mascara top up.
Define brows with brow kit
Give your brows a boost with some definition. Use the wand to smooth out your lashes and then the powder to fill in any gaps and create an even look. This will immediately make you look more polished.
Brush on some highlighter on cheekbones
Use a well blended highlighter on your cheekbones. This encourages the light the bounce off giving you more structure and radiance to you face.
Add eye liner on waterline and lash line
Bring out the eyes more for the evening by adding eyeliner to further define and shape the eyes.
Use blush to enhance cheeks natural apples
Pop some blush onto the apples of the cheeks, for a rosy glow.
Finish the look with a slick of lipstick
No evening look would be complete without lipstick.
Although I’m a make-up fan, I never want to look overly made up. I want easy and quick to use products that will help enhance my features, while giving me natural overall look. However, I still want to feel like me!
I really enjoyed taking this challenge and trying products that perhaps I wouldn’t have tried previously. I will definitely buy from the Natural Collection again.
