They are supposed to be different? 🙃
It’s rare that an eyeshadow will last over 10 hours on me, so I’d have to redo it if I wanted to look fresh in the evening.
I would rather redo, but sometimes magic happens when you work on top of an existing look.
I would just add on top if I had any makeup on to begin with, but if the morning’s makeup was really heinous, then I’d probably redo. 😂 day to day, though, I haven’t usually been wearing a face to begin with.
I take a full shower if I have an event to go to, and I had to work that day. However, I will do my best to take the entire day off, so it has never been an issue…
I do a hybrid! I take some off and add some on. I wear very minimal makeup for daytime cause I’m lazy in the mornings; usually just brows, cream blush, little bit of Charlotte Tillbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, and lipstick. For nighttime I will usually remove my cream blush and CT HFF to start fresh, and add foundation, redo cream blush and HFF, add powder, powder blush in a lighter bronzey color, eyeshadow, and mascara!
In an ideal world I would remove all the makeup and start fresh. For me retouching is more like blotting and reapplying lipstick… I hate to add extra product on top of eyeshadow or face makeup that has been sitting for hours.
But if I really don’t have time to completely reapply, I’m more prone to leave the look as it is for the evening.
Usually? Neither! The only thing I might change up is my lip color or add lipgloss. If my eyes have been watering, I may just touch it up.
Usually, I’ll just add on and freshen up a bit in the interest of time (time is often short) but if it’s been a rough day or I’ve been to the gym, I’ll cleanse my face and start all over again and throw in a shower if there’s time.
If I am going out in the evening (and yabba dabba do we can now!) I generally start anew as I am probably wearing something different or have had a shower beforehand.
Occasionally though, if it’s a last minute outing, say to a hotel for dinner, I will touch up with new lipstick and an addition of blush, powder and a freshening of my eyeshadow. But I really prefer to redo.
I will usually remove and start over, unless I’m crunched for time.
I have a wishy-washy answer. It depends on the reason I am going out that night. If it is something really important or an upscale place, etc. I will shower and start from scratch. If it is just a regular occasion I usually won’t even touch up but will refresh my lipstick.
There are two possibilities (or should I say “were”? back when life was normal):
1) I’m already out and about and don’t have the time to go home and change, so I might refresh my blush and maybe add a perkier eyeshadow -assuming it was planned, because I usually don’t carry any- and lipstick on top. I won’t (re)touch anything else because that usually means taking sth from bad to worse. I powder under my eyes now (what I wouldn’t give not to need it!) and this is probably where a touch-up is needed the most but cream over powder over cream is a bad idea and has never ended well for me!
2) I have enough time to go home. This means I’ll probably have a shower so I’ll start from scratch (unless I had my makeup done by a pro over at John Lewis…cough cough… then I’ll just tilt my head! haha). If I’m pressed for time, I’ll wash my face, put on new makeup, change clothes and put on nice perfume, otherwise why bother going home?
I think I’d generally blot my T-zone, add a bit of powder and add some shimmer to my lids. I might refresh blush and then I’d remove the lipstick and apply a fresh layer.
If I have time, I’d take a quick shower, but I’d not wash my hair, it’s long and takes a bit of time to get dry. I hardly ever use any dryer, I let it dry by itself.
And that tropical look is gorgeous on you !!!
