Its Friday. You can’t wait until 5:30, you’re going to put a film on and enjoy a facemask, perhaps a glass of wine. Suddenly, your phone lights up and a message appears on the girls WhatsApp group, “Who wants drinks? 🍸 🍸 🍸”. You know you can’t be the only one who doesn’t show, and FOMO is kicking in hard. You fire a quick response but then realise: how much fun can you have in your work clothes and with limited makeup? Don’t worry, Justmylook has a few simple makeup tips that can get you from studious and smart work makeup to night out and party ready. You don’t need hours to get ready, so long as you already have your base on and a little bit of makeup from earlier in the day.
Firstly, grab your best waterproof pencil – we’re feeling a dark shade such as black or navy, it is Friday night after all! Use theBalm Nude ‘Tued 12 Colour Eyeshadow Palette to find the perfect eyeshadow for your mood or the occasion. The shades can be easily blended to create superior colour longevity with highly-pigmented and long-lasting formulation.
The next step is a touching up your eyeliner, so using Benefit Roller Lash will help curl your lashes for voluptuous volume. This will give you that glam volume, no one would know you came straight from work. If you want to turn up the volume even more, why not add some false eyelashes, glued as close to your lash line as possible.
#2: Highlight and Contour
The next step is a highlight and contour. Use Sleek Makeup’s Cream Contour Kit – containing two highlighting and four contouring shades that are ultra-blendable and perfect to put on in the office to quickly achieve the ultimate contoured complexion.
A quick contour after work is great for sculpting, defining and enhancing the illusion of refined features – simply apply your chosen foundation and using a small contour brush apply the contour from your ear then gently blend towards the direction of your mouth. Lastly, apply the highlighter to the apples of your cheek, for cheekbones that are soft yet defined.
#3: Finishing Touches
Before you leave your workplace, take advantage of the mirror to apply a red, bold look on the lips – we recommend Max Factor Lipfinity Lip Colour, with the choices of shade available you’ll easily find the perfect one that will make the rest of your outfit pop. This is the final step and seals your look.
Transforming your look from the office loo can only take a few minutes with these simple steps, and you’ll be ready to hit the town in no time – so whether you’re off to the Christmas party, have a special date or just a night out with the girls, you can go from your desk to glam and create a look that really stands out.
