Planned a hot date post office? Or simply going out drinking with your girls to loosen up after a stressful day, makeup always comes handy. Don’t feel pressured, you just need the right motivation and products that can take you from drab to fab in minutes.
Here are some pointers to follow when you want to take your beauty look from boardroom to ballroom without much hassles.
Small changes can make big difference
If you are seriously pressed for time, just add more definition to your existing look. Things like turning your plain eyeliner into a winged one, dabbing on some dramatic eyeshadow on your lids, applying highlighter to the high points of the face and swapping nude lip for a bold one can help you look sharp and ready for the night. It does not take a lot of effort but can totally make you look gorgeous.
Get your complexion candlelight-ready in a jiffy with the help of bronzing powder that has some shimmer in it. Too much shomer can make you look like a disco ball so test the bronzer before buying to ensure it has subtle hints of glitter. Instead of dusting the bronzer all over the face, follow the hollows of your cheeks, tops of your ears, your temples, shoulders and collar bone. The shimmer in the bronzer will catch the light to enhance your features and make your skin look radiant.

Opt for smoky eye
If you cant think of anything else, a smoky eye will come to your rescue. Sweep shimmery powder highlighter across the eyelid. Trace the kajal on the upper and lower lash line and use your finger to smudge it out gently. Dab on more shimmer power if required and top it up with mascara and voila! You are a bomb.
Pout it out
A red lip is the easiest way to glam up. But you can also opt for other dark colours like wine, burgundy, plum, marsala etc. Bold lips are perfect for night time and can look sassy and sophisticated at the same time. Add some plumping lip gloss for a fuller pout that can be the focus of your face. Reapply the gloss to keep that pout on all through the night.
Invest in multi-tasking makeup
In this age of multi-tasking, why not buy makeup that multi-tasks and comes with multi-use palettes. Not only it will save you time and money, it will also be easy to carry. You can also use one makeup product to do the job of another like use the lipstick as cheek stain or the blush as the eyeshadow. It’s all about making your life easier.
