Easy Daytime to Nighttime Duochrome Looks

Easy Daytime to Nighttime Duochrome Looks

Today I have two easy daytime to nighttime duochrome looks to share with you. I actually shot a video on this but I was out of frame for about half of the tutorial (I’m a one woman show, so there’s no one to tell me if I drift out of frame), so I was disappointed at that, but decided I’d still share the photos with you. I was really excited because I showed how well the  UD green color corrector works for me, so I’ll have to do it again.

The daytime eye look is pinky-mauvey-burgundy with a hint of purple. I kept with the mauve tones with the cheeks. I tried the Tarte TBT lipstick, which says it’s a mauve, but it looks like it has a lot of brown in it.

For nighttime, I layered Typhoon on top of Phanton, which really brings out the blue tones in Typhoon. Bordeaux brings out the golden green in Typhoon. Ear Grey was perfect to deepen the crease and cool off the burgundy a bit without having it get too dark.

I don’t like how TBT looks on me, as it has a lot more brown than I expected. It’s disappointing. UD Native + Ex-Girlfriend is one of my favorite MLBB type lip looks.  As much as I love the combo of UD Bittersweet + Speedball (and I really really need to wear this combo more often, SO GORGEOUS), I don’t like it with this look. I like the red Ofra Kathleenlights Havana Nights lipstick the best.

What do you think of the Easy Daytime to Nighttime Duochrome Looks tutorial?

How do you like to wear duochromes? Which lip look do you prefer?
