How-To Makeup for Day to Night

It's that time of year for Holiday Happy Hours, Parties and More!

We know many of you are limited on time and need easy ways to move from day to night makeup. Our resident makeup guru took the time to show you two easy looks- one for day and one for evening that work together! 

Left: Daytime   Right: Evening

Left: Daytime 

Right: Evening

For your daytime look, you will want to start with your favorite face coverage. We love to use Aveda's concealer for under eye coverage and spot coverage before applying their tinted moisturizer and sealing it with their dual coverage foundation. For more coverage, dampening the sponge will create heavier coverage. 

For your eyes, Gobi Sands eye shadow not only creates the perfect, natural every-day eye, the lightly pigmented colors also compliment every eye color! The trio has a light, medium, and dark shade. Keep lighter shades closer to the inner corner of your eye and darker shades closer to the outside corner of your eye...this creates the illusion of larger eyes! We used Black Orchid as the go-to liner in both of our looks. For daytime, we lightly lined above the lashes for a subtle effect.

For your lips, use a light color that brings out your natural lip color. Our personal favorite here at Thirty Hair used to create this look is Sheer Primose Lip Color. It is the perfect pink for a natural, yet refreshed looking lip. The nourish-mint mineral lip color provides sheer coverage while plumping and smoothing the appearance of fine lines.  

To transition to the evening look, we used deeper pigments & colors on the eyes and lips.

 

For your eyes, we added Rosegold single eye shadow into the crease of the eye to deepen the color, we also added a winged liner using the same black liner to create more of a bold look.

For your lips, we swapped lip colors to Carnelian, a deep burgundy color that compliments all skin tones! 

 

If you love either of these looks but want to have some lessons on how and what to use, schedule a holiday makeup session with Emmy any Saturday this month! 

 

 

 

Education at Thirty Hair

We've been busy bees this spring at Thirty Hair taking trips to Alexandria, Virginia to the Aveda Southeast Education Headquarters and having the regional cutting and styling educator into the salon for an all-team cutting class! Check out some of the work we created, things we've learned and the fun we've had!

Lisa and Sarah headed off to an Advanced Academy with Bea Watson, Aveda's Globa Director of Styling. They learned a TON of unique uses for the styling products and many quick and easy ways to take the runway looks and trends into wearable hairstyles.

 

Kara went to a hands on class working with Andrea Swanson about the newest trends and ways to work with fashion colors. Did you know Aveda color can create an infinite amount of pastel colors and about every shade in the rainbow without permanently damaging your hair? Check out the lavender shadow root she did to Emmy, one of our newest stylists after attending the class.

 

Lastly, the girls all got together on their Monday off to work on their cutting skills. Hope Harris came to us for the day and our salon became an advanced academy learning core cutting with her. We each worked on 3 different cuts, perfecting body positioning, hair texture and techniques.

We had quite the fun considering it was our day off and ended with a silly group selfie... (we were so busy working we didn't stop to take pictures of our work throughout the day!)

 

If you haven't noticed, we are on the move, learning and growing for our guests! Between weekly trainings for our new hires and constant advanced educational opportunities, change and growth is key for our team. Look for more fun posts on facebook and IG as our team gets two more awesome color educational events in-salon this summer!
