Day to Night – St. Patricks Day Edition! 

Happy St. Patricks Day MYD loves!

I’m so happy to share another day to night makeup look with you guys! These are some of my favorite looks to create because I don’t know about you, but I don’t always have an extra hour to spend on my makeup. This is a quick and easy way to transform your day makeup into an emerald green smokey eye!

So this is a very simple look for a day time look. I did my makeup exactly like I do on a day to day basis. All I did was add a green shadow to my lower lash line! I did add a very tiny amount to my outer corner as well. I have pretty oily skin and some texture, so I’ll list the products that are included in my every day makeup routine! To start off I use the Porefessional primer by Benefit. Since my skin is oily I have big pores and this primer does an amazing job at really making my skin look a lot smoother. I use Kat Van D foundation, Tarte Shape Tape concealer, Laura Mercier translucent setting powder, & the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Palette to contour my face. To finish off my face I go in with a little bit of Hoola bronzer from Benefit, blush from Urban Decay (I usually mix a few colors together), and my go to highlight is Champagne Pop by Becca!

Moving on to the eyes… on a typical day I tend to just put a nice warm brown shade in my entire crease and highlight my inner corner. That’s exactly what I did to create this look too! But, I added a slightly darker brown shade to my outer corner with a touch of a dark green shadow! To finish off the eye I smudged a lighter green shadow on my lower lash line. Oh and you can’t forget about brows! I used the same shade I use as my inner corner highlight for my brow bone. As always I used the Anastasia Brow Wiz to fill in my brows.


Now it’s time to smoke it out & go out to celebrate St. Patricks Day!


To transform this look into a night time look only takes a few steps! I used the same dark brown shadow in the outer crease to really smoke it out. I also brought that same shade down to connect with the light green shadow that is on my lower lash line. I then went into my Makeup Forever Artist Shadow Palette and used the emerald green glitter shadow in the shade ME-302. I applied this all over the lid. After applying this I realized I needed a little more, so I went into my Sonia Kashuk Gems and Jewels Palette and added that emerald green shadow on top. This definitely made a huge difference. To finish up I added a touch of a gold glitter shadow to my inner corner. There’s a gold glitter in both of the palettes that work great!

I added a very thin line of gel eyeliner on my lash line and also tight lined. I used Pur cosmetics Fully Charged mascara to bring it all together! A pair of false lashes would look great with this look too. I kept a nude lip for both the day and night look just because I really wanted to focus to be on the emerald green eye!


I hope you enjoyed this day to night St. Patricks Day makeup look!

Until next time,

XOXO, Caitlynn

Valentines Day to Night Look! 

Hi again MYD beauties!!

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Tuesday this year many of you may be wondering how you’re going to have time to get ready in between work & any evening plans you may have! It may be dinner with your significant other or just girls night out, but you still want to look your best! I’ve put together this very easy day to night Valentine’s Day inspired look that anybody can achieve!

You may not be used to wearing a lot of makeup, much less pink eyeshadow and a pink lip! But I’m encouraging all of you to step out of your comfort zone and have a little fun with your makeup this Valentine’s Day!

So, if you want to learn to achieve this look just keep on reading!

For the most part I did my face makeup how I normally wear it on a day to day basis. All I did different was use a cool toned pink blush! I used the color Cherry by Urban Decay, but any soft bubble gum pink will look great with this look! Now, for my eyes I used the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette to create both of these looks! I totally recommend looking into getting this palette. It has a great variety of matte and shimmer shades and would be great for spring and fall looks!

So, I started off by running the color Warm Taupe in my entire crease to have a good transition shade. I then buffed Buon Fresco on top of Warm Taupe, so again in my entire crease! After I used a small amount of Love Letter in my outer corner to give a little demention. To finish up I packed the shade Vermeer on to my entire lid and inner corner. A coat of mascara will tie the eye look together.

When I was trying to decide what lip color I wanted to use I was leaning towards a nude (of course). But, it’s Valentine’s Day! The perfect chance to break out your Barbie pink lip! So I’m wearing The shade Dream House a melted metal liquid lipstick by Too Faced.

Now, work is over and it’s time to rush to a dinner, party, or any event you may have planned! This may look like a totally different look, but I promise it literally three steps to get you to this look! So, starting off from the previous look all you have to do is take the shade Cyprus Umber from the same eyeshadow palette. You want to really focus this on the outer corner and buff it into the crease until about mid way. Then you can take any eyeliner that you like and make it a little more bold. You can add a wing if you want, it’s totally up to you! To finish this look I removed the pink liquid lipstick and put on another liquid lipstick. I think a red lip will be perfect for any evening event you are going to.


I hope you enjoy these two looks and I would love to see if you try them out!! So just make sure you send us pictures or tag us with #mydbeauty on social media if you try these looks out!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

XOXO, Caitlynn

Jessica & Tom | The Sanderling

Hello MYD Beauties,

Today we are obsessing over “Summer Love” with Jessica & Tom’s Wedding. Held at The Sanderling we just adore those knee length bridesmaids dresses and Jessica’s belt on her wedding dress!

Jessica’s beautiful textured undo and natural makeup were just the right look for the beach venue at The Sanderling Resort.  The pops of pink in her bouquet from Bells & Whistles match the seersucker suits like a charm.

Isabella & Tyler | Duke Chapel

Hello MYD Beauties,

Isabella and Tyler’s wedding at The Duke Chapel was pure magic. Between Isabella’s dress and her lashes, we don’t even know where to start.

The wedding held at The Duke Chapel is classic and timeless, the touches of navy and her soft pink lip really made it pop. The love is in the photos by Renee Sprink Photography, can’t you just see how much Isabella and Tyler adore each other.

Oh, did you see the gold cake and dessert tower by Miel Bon Bons? Yeah, we love it too.
