Summer days are long and full, and before you know it, the sun sets and it's a summer night. So why waste a warm, summer second starting your makeup from scratch when a few simple tricks can easily transition your look from day to night?

Keep it simple! Use a CC cream for dewey skin, top with bronzer, and a tiny hint of blush to the cheeks.
An all-in-one pallet like the pictured Physicians Formula Shimmer Strip is perfect for both highlighting and as an eye shadow. Dust the lightest color on cheekbones and the bridge of your nose, and apply to the inner corner of the eyes. If you want a little shimmer on the lid, lightly add one of the darker colors with your finger. Finish the eyes off with a swipe of mascara for long, voluminous lashes that pop.
Swipe on a coat of lightly pigmented lip gloss, and this bronzed goddess look will get you through the day.
First, use blotting paper to absorb excess oil before touching up your CC cream, bronzer, and blush.
To really transition into a nighttime look, focus on making your eyes pop. Line your top lash line with Benefit's foolproof black liner, then follow with a highly pigmented, metallic bronze shadow like Stila's Magnificent Metals Foil Eye Shadow. Follow with a second coat of mascara.
Use a hydrating, rose colored lipstick to make your lips to finish off the look, then head out and make it a summer night to remember.
