Makeup for Work and a Night Out

It’s 5pm and your after-work plans are looming. One look at yourself in the restroom mirror however and you know you’re not ready. Here’s what to do to get your office makeup prepared for an evening out.

Step 1: Make sure your “stash” is stocked

Streaky foundation? Shiny nose? Eyeliner gone AWOL? When it comes to the end of the workday makeup, these issues are the just the tip of the iceberg. However, if you have a small arsenal of products in your bottom drawer, you’ll have an easy time pulling together an evening look. Blotting papers, liquid concealer, bronzer, gloss, and liner are must-haves.

Step 2: Touch up and highlight

The first item to get under control after a long day is your complexion. To update your look efficiently, start blotting and then use a Liquid Camouflage Concealer. Layered on blemishes, or blended over larger areas to conquer redness, a liquid concealer blurs a multitude of sins – no foundation necessary. Skip the contouring and opt for ways to brighten and highlight, preferably simultaneously. In this case, bronzer is the multi-tasking tool for the job.

Step 3: Add drama to the eyes

If you’d like to do more to your eyes with less, a velvety Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil is all you need to create a subtly smoky look for evening. First, run your liner over the top lid to create a medium thick line. Then working from the inside corner outwards, blend into the lid to create a smoke effect. It’s probably the easiest thing you’ll do all day!

Step 4: Punch up the color with lipstick or gloss

Lipstick is considered the gold standard for going out makeup. After a long day of work, this may be all you need to perk up your look. So, go ahead and harness the power of what a pop of color can do for your evening look by using a bold lipstick or even a pink gloss. You’ll shine bright like a diamond with Infinite Shine Lip Gloss in Pink-Terest.
