It is coming to that time of year where our social calendars are getting more on the busier side. Sometimes there are not enough hours in the day to go from work to a event or to meet some friends and freshen up. With that in mind, I thought I would share with you some of my favourite ways to amp up a look and take it from day to night in the space of five minutes.
Touch up with a Conceler
It is a pain to take of your entire face of make up but if you find foundation can fade slightly on your face during the day, take your regular concealer in your bag and touch up the areas that need attending too. Something like the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Coverage Concealer is creamy enough to blend nicely in to the skin.
Amp up the eyeliner
I will admit, I wear a good liner all the time. It really helps define my eyes and make them look bigger. If this is something you usually skip then using a felt tip liner to do a thinnish line will add a little of fun and drama to your look.
Get that glow
I love a good highlighter. Especially on a evening out it makes such a big difference. I like to go a bit overboard. My go to highlighter is usually TheBalm’s Mary Lou Manizer but I managed to get hold of the new Becca Poured Highlighter in Opal which looks like a highlight fiends dream.
Add a bold lip
You knew this one was coming. It is a classic but effective way to take your look from a nice chic daytime feel to a slightly more sultry evening appropriate vibe. I went for NARS VIP red in this picture. It is a nice rust/ burnt red that will stay on your lips all evening. I don’t have to worry about this going all the place while I am talking to people.
I find these steps really quick and easy to do on the go. The products do not take up much room in my bag and they are all things I can do in the bathroom in between work and the gathering I am going on too afterwards.
