TV Beauté: night time easy smokey eye (2 in 1)

I have Dia de Beauté for almost 7 years now, but I still get a lot of emails from readers (and messages from friends!) asking for help because they cannot do their own makeup, especially for dinners, parties and other events at night – or that they can only do one makeup, and wanted to be able to change. I don’t even need to say that I panic when I hear it, after all there are so many easy tricks and key products that give a great effect, without the need to know and master a thousand complicated techniques! And it is what I usually wear “in real life” also, since I hardly ever have a lot of time to dedicate to makeup moment (unfortunately hehehe).

I did TV Beauté this week thinking about this – it is a 2 in 1 video with an easy smokey eye for the night, with a softer version (I wore it to go out for dinner with my husband) and a stronger and a bit more *elaborate* one (that I also wore to go out for dinner with my husband, since I had just finished doing this video hahaha! You see right, there is not such thing as makeup x for occasion y… Everything counts, as long as you feel like you match the situation! Sometimes I wear heavier makeups for dinner than I wear to go to a party, it as a lot to do with what you feel like at the time right?). But this second smokey would totally work perfectly for a wedding even, so go for it!

Ah, this is the makeup I had on during last week’s video, the one with the retro hairstyle (I was happy that several girls asked me to teach it, woo-hoo always a good sign). I remind you that the products can easily be replaced by others – neutral brown eyeshadow, dark eye pencil (black & cia) and glittery eyeshadow comes in all the brands! (there are photos of the makeups by the end of the post)
