Night Shift Makeup Tutorial


Hi everyone, how are you all today?

By the time this goes live I’ll be asleep on night 4, which is the last one before my nights off. Today though I wanted to share one of my night shift makeup routines. These tend to be quite simple looks that use very few products.


After applying quite a lot of moisturizer I buffed a light layer of foundation into my skin. Tonight I used the Clinique Superbalanced Silk Foundation, which is such a lovely texture. It’s a very nice hydrating formula. To conceal under my eyes I used the Superdrug BB Concealer with a damp blending sponge. I set everything into place using the Maybelline Matte Maker powder.

To give my very pale face some colour I buffed a generous amount of my Dior Air Nude Bronzer into my cheek bones, and Bare Minerals Vintage Peach blush on the apples of my cheeks. For a touch of highlighter I applied the Smashbox Halo Bronzing Wand to the tops of my cheek bones, blending it out with a damp blending sponge.


For my brows, I applied a very light layer of Benefit’s Ka-Brow pommade. On my actual eyes I took a khaki green shade from the I ♥ Makeup Makeup Geek Palette and applied this to my upper lid, blending out the edges with a soft fluffy brush. On my lower lashline, I took a lilac shade and buffed this out quite softly.

Along my top lash line, I applied a very thin line of Ciate Chisel Liner, and used a Models own i-define Kohl Eyeliner in White in my waterline.

For mascara, I applied a few layers of Benefit’s Roller Lash Mascara, topped with the Clinique Chubby Lash Mascara in Two Ton Teal.


For lipstick, I kept things really simple and swept on a light layer of Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie lipstick in Speak Your Mind.

And that was everything.

What would you wear on a night shift? Would you wear makeup on a night shift?

Have a lovely day guys!
