Five Tips To Take You From Work To Wow!

Ah, don't you just love this time of year? The air is warmer. The days are longer. The urge to rush home after work, pull on the pj's and binge watch a show disappears as the pull of going out to a bar or restaurant with friends and spending hours chatting over a glass of something yum and a plate of something yummer (that's totally a word, even if the dictionary says it's not...) takes over. 

So what's a gal to do when she finishes the work day feeling all drab and needs to look fab in five? Check out these simple tips!

Yves Saint Laurent Dessin Du Regard

They say the eyes have it, so let them have it! Amp up the eyeliner! Take an eye liner pencil (or a liquid liner if you have nerves of steel and doing a wing at work doesn't give you nightmares) and get to work emphasising your peepers. Make a booboo? Smoke it out and no one will know! 

Maybelline The Colossal Volum' Express

Then, wave your magic wand! Lashes looking more like spindly, tired insect legs than lush lovelies? Pull out your favourite mascara, wiggle the wand through and give them that much needed boost!

The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

With the sun still in the sky or the downlights at the bar hitting your cheekbones there's no excuse to not get your shine on! A little highlighter added to the high points of your face can take your look from day to slay in no time! (Oh, and it can double as an eyeshadow if yours has gone the way of the dodo!)

MAC Matte Lipstick

Nothing elevates a look like a bright lippy! So if you need to look pulled together in a hurry then pull out a bright bullet of prettiness and get swiping. Fuchsia, coral, fire-engine red - be brave, be bold, be a babe!

Schwarzkopf got2b Fresh It Up Dry Shampoo

Is your post-work hair dull and drab, flat and foul (okay, foul's probably a massive exaggeration, but I do love me a bit of alliteration)? Then give it a boost with a spritz of volumising dry shampoo! Any oil, or potential oil, will be sucked up good and proper, and those roots will be given a bouncy new lease of life. Salon-fab hair, sorted!

So, there you have it - five simple tricks to take you from day to night, from work to play, from ho-hum to hot and humming! Now, do tell, what are your tips for a quick and easy makeover? Sharing is caring!

I pretty much do all of the above for a quick makeover to take me from day to night and then give my face a quick spritz of a toner to make me feel and look refreshed.

Loving all the tips, except dry shampoo doesn't work for me, so I just tie my hair up in a high pony tail while I long hair.

If you get oily throughout the day you might want to use some blotting papers to freshen up. If you look a bit dry and cakey going over your face with a damp beautyblender helps things look a bit better before applying more product. You can also try applying a bright colored eyeliner to give your eyes a bit of pop if you're eating and don't want to have to worry about a bright or dark lip coming off or going patchy.
