I shared with you before that I’m not wearing much makeup to work these days. I’ve toned it way down simply because it makes getting ready easier in the mornings, and my face stays covered most of the time at work, anyway (thank you, surgical masks and bouffants!). There are some instances, though, that I need to get ready in a flash after work-especially this time of year-tis the season, after all. Here’s how you can get glam in five.
There are so many after work holiday parties this time of year, and I know one of them is going to sneak up on me. I can just imagine myself getting into the car practically barefaced, heading home, and realizing that my annual holiday drinks with the girls night is in less than 20 minutes. Fortunately, I know a fool-proof way to glam in under five minutes… and it can be done in your car.
Here’s what you’ll need:
An eye primer
A smudgy eye shadow pot
A brow product
First, take an eye primer and apply a tiny amount to each bare lid. I’m using this one because it works for over 8 hours… and you know a girl’s night out can be a long one!
Next, choose your favorite smudgy eye shadow pot. I’m a big fan of this purple beauty that can be used as a shadow or a liner.
Take a generous amount of product and dab it on your lids using your fingers. Keep dabbing and working the product until it covers your entire lid. Then dab up into the crease to blend the color out. Use a pencil brush to bring some of the color onto your lower lash line. Smudge it out.
Now you’re ready for liner! Take a dark black kohl eyeliner, like this one, and tight line your lids. If you wish, you can also use it to thinly line your upper lash line.
By now, you know that I am a firm believer in bold brows, and the holidays are a perfect time to make this happen, so take a little bit of brow product and apply it to your eyebrows. If you need a little help with this, here’s a super quick video:
And that’s it! That’s seriously all there is to it. 5 minutes or less and you’re on your way to whatever holiday adventure awaits you. This simple makeup hack has saved me more times than I can count. It can be used for a multitude of occasions, but I find myself needing these types of looks more around the holidays.
If you’re really pressed for time and you don’t keep these products in a makeup bag with you, swing by CVS and pick up everything you need in a jiffy… you’ll be holiday glam in five. I love that Milani products give you high end quality, at drugstore prices.
It’s so easy you can do it from your car. Maybe just make sure you’re parked, first… and if you’re lucky, you’ll win this sweepstakes. Then you can buy all the makeup you need, my friends.
