How to transform your day look to a night look in 5 easy steps

There are often times that I find myself needing to get ready quickly after work for a night out. This does not leave me much time to redo my whole face, so I follow five simple steps to turn my look from daytime to nighttime.

  1. Create a bold lip– I use a natural beige colour on my lips for the most part throughout the day, so switching it up for night time with a bold red or deep mauve tone can drastically change my look. My go to nighttime colour is Anastasia Liquid Lipstick in the shade, Alison.
  2. For added drama try the Double Wispies to make lashes fuller

    Layer on those lashes- I currently wear eyelash extensions but before I got them fake eyelashes were my favourite beauty product. Vamping up your lashes create a flirty look which is perfect for going out. My favourite eyelashes are the Ardell Demi Wispies.

  3. Buff out your eyeliner or change the shape- I myself do not tend to wear eyeliner during the day but for those who do there are two ways to change it up for the night. One way is to simply smudge or buff out the eyeliner you already have on to create a smoky eye. The second is to create a wing or cat eye for a sultrier stare. For a wing, my favourite is liquid liners such as Kat Von D Ink Liner, and a gel liner such as the Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Liner to smudge into a smoky eye.
  4. Darken your eye shadow- Adding some bronze or earthy tones and creating a dramatic crease is a surefire way to make your daytime look a lot more dramatic. The eyeshadow palette that I would suggest is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette.
  5. Highlight, Highlight, Highlight- Nothing says wow more than a nice fierce glow atop of your cheekbones. Layer on two or three different highlighters to make all the difference in your look. The best highlighter palette for layering is definitely the Anastasia Beverly Hills That Glow Kit.

Welcome to Kontouring Karlee!

My obsession with makeup began about six years ago when I discovered the Kardashian family. The first thing I noticed about the Kardashian’s was their beauty and more specifically their makeup which was always flawless. I began to research products that they were using and the artists who were doing their makeup and I became obsessed. Youtube videos, Instagram’s, and facebook posts of the Kardashians getting their makeup done became my inspiration to learn how to apply makeup myself.

Although I am not a certified makeup artist, it is something that I enjoy doing for fun.  Not only am I getting myself ready for school and night’s out but also my friend’s.There is not a weekend that goes by that I don’t have my three roommates waiting in my room to get their makeup done.

Mario Dedivanovic is the makeup artist behind Kim Kardashian’s signature look and the person that I look up to. His tutorials on his blog and youtube channel have taught me

most of what I know including how to apply makeup and what products work really well. He is definitely my biggest inspiration behind this blog.

It is a common misconception in today’s society that girls don’t need makeup and it should be about natural beauty, or that if we do wear makeup it’s because we want to impress boys. However, I can tell you that I do not own 25 different shades of lipstick for a boy who doesn’t know the difference between MAC cosmetics Whirl lipstick and Kat Von D’s Lolita liquid lipstick. This blog is about the fun behind makeup, experimenting with new looks, testing new products, and talking about skincare. It is a passion of mine that I can’t wait to share. Enjoy!
