Day-to-Night Makeup in 5 Minutes or Less
We've all been there...a long shift, your makeup is on its last legs, you're a bit tired but REALLY want to meet your friends at happy hour and not look like a hot mess.
It really doesn't take much to spruce up and zhjshooj (is this a made-up word? zhoojsh? zchoozsh?) yourself into a fresher look in five minutes or less. The five key products to have in your bag are powder, bronzer, eyeshadow, a bold lipstick, and dry shampoo.
Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder (Travel-sized is $23 - Sephora). It's just the best.
Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer is a great option, and comes in a handy dandy travel size ($15 - Sephora or Ulta).
Shade + Light Eye Contour Quad ($26 - Sephora).
Even if you don't have time for the other steps, switching up your lip color to something a bit bolder is a great way to change your whole look. Try a vibrant red, hot pink, or deep plum. A nice drugstore find is the Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color in "Rebel Red". I like its affordable price tag ($6.99-Any drugstore) & smooth, creamy application.
My savior. A few sprays of this into your roots, let it dry for 20 seconds, then rub into your scalp. It will not only give you more thickness & volume, but will make your strands smell nice. Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo ($6-Most drugstores) is always a safe bet.
That's totally less than five minutes, right? Just add some perfume behind your ears on the drive to wherever you're going (at a red light of course!), and you're fresh and fierce and zchsgzoooshzed and ready for the night.
