It’s Friday night and you find yourself stuck in the office that little bit longer than you had hoped to be and running late for that date/night with the girls/dinner party you’ve so been looking forward to. So you rush home, switch your conservative black pumps and blazer for some bright sky-high heels and a cute sequinned jacket then look in the mirror only to realise your simple daytime makeup just isn’t going to cut it. Been there? We all have.
Arm yourself with these quick tips for taking your look from day to night and you’ll have your (beauty) game face on faster than you can polish off a glass of bubbly…
1. Embrace Finishing Powder
If by days end you’re foundation has lasted or you simply don’t have time to reapply, use a light brushing of a correcting powder like our Mineral Gemstone Finishing Powder in Corrector to even out the skin tone, create a soft focus effect and minimize any skin imperfections.
2. Get Luminous
Illuminator makes your skin look younger, fresher and brighter. If you want to wake your look up a little, apply a little illuminator to the high cheek bone and cheeks. And if you’re seriously running late touch up on the go with our Mineral Illuminator which comes in a handy pen that you can throw in your handbag. It’s super easy to apply and will quickly give you a brightening boost.
3. Eye Bright
Usually by the end of the day your eyes are the area to show any signs of tiredness. A concealer like our Hydra Bright Line Diffuser will instantly take that away and minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Follow these instructions and you’ll be on your way to your brightest eyes ever.
A quick brush of mascara never goes astray either!
4. Make a (lip) Statement
A statement lip takes your look from basic to bold in seconds. Red lipstick works with just about any outfit you can throw together so it’s a great one to keep in the handbag for those last-minute dashes from office to bar.
For something a little different, try our Micro Melon lipstick. It’s an incredibly flattering shade that suits just about everyone and gives you a bold look that isn’t too OTT.
Not keen on brights? No worries. Go for a soft tint instead! Our Liptox glosses deliver that soft tint, a quick plump and shimmer all at once.
5. Brow Now
Run a soft brow pencil through your brows to define and shape. Bolder brows add another dimension to your look and they’re subtle way of enhancing your features.
TOP TIP: Remember apply a little rather than a lot of anything at first. Having to remove excess makeup takes up far more time than adding a little more.
