Fast Office to Bar Makeup Tips

After a long hard week in the office there is nothing that tempts me more, than an after work gossip in the nearest wine bar.  But when your make-up has been in place since the crack-of-dawn commute, how can you quickly look and feel weekend ready? You need Fast Office to Bar Makeup.


A few simple tricks are all you need for your Day To Night Transformation. Retreat to the ladies room with your basic make-up bag and get ready to go!

Vamp Up Those Tired Eyes


Working a pencil eyeliner along your top and bottom lash line before smudging with either the sponge-tipped end of your pencil, a cotton bud or gently with your ring finger, creates subtle smokiness and a touch of drama.  For the added wow factor try using a plum, bronze or navy pencil and finish with a coat of black mascara.

Revive A Dull Complexion


Simply hide any blemishes with a creamy concealer and brighten any under eye darkness with a light reflecting concealer pen. Check out my other guide to covering dark circles. Finish with a light dusting of bronzing powder over the forehead, cheeks, chin and down the nose before sweeping a hint of blush onto the apples of cheeks.

Get Fresh & Glossy!


A slick of bold glossy lip colour, a spritz of your favourite scent and a quick dose of dry shampoo to boost those roots, and you’ll be bar ready in no time!
