How To Take Your Makeup From Day To Night

Save time, stay pretty

The world today demands you to be a multitasker. You have to be with all the notifications draining our gadgets' (and our brains') batteries, after all. In turn, we ask the same thing from those gadgets. A phone can't just be a phone; it has to connect you to the Internet, and, more importantly, the world. Your flannel shirt can't just be a shirt; it has to look good dressed up and dressed down. In the same vein, your makeup has to take you from day to night. Our busybody lifestyles lend themselves—nay, they demand that our beauty looks be transitional. We want a look that's effortless by day and something that pops at night, executed with the same ease as slipping on a nice leather coat. Thankfully, Acacia Brinley has a few tricks up her sleeve and Clinique has helped make sharing them possible. Check out the video above for one showstopping day-to-night makeup look that's so easy, the hardest thing will be figuring out how to fill up the time usually reserved for getting ready.
