Easy tips to transform your look from day to night

By Michelle Williams

It’s often a challenge to look fresh and fabulous for a night out after a long day at the office. Without going home and starting all over again with your hair, makeup and outfit, how can you look as fresh at 7pm as you did at 7am?

Take your outfit from day to night with a few easy accessories. Nothing says instant elegance and style like a pair of heels. Swap out your daytime jewellery for bigger, bolder pieces, like drop earrings, bangle bracelets, or a big necklace, for a little more sparkle and shine. Ditch the big bag for a small clutch and throw on a snappy jacket in a complementary shade to complete the glamorous ensemble.  

Hair looking a little flat? Revitalize your locks by turning your head upside down, and giving your hair a good brush or finger comb. Then, flip it back and back-comb at the roots for a bit of height. Shape and set the look with hairspray. You can also keep it simple and pull your hair into an elegant pony tail. Another way to style your hair is by wrapping a sock around the base of  your pony tail and pinning your hair around it, create an elegant updo. Short hair? Spike it up with a touch of gel for a sassy and chic look.  

Start your makeup touch-up with a wet cleansing cloth. Prep your skin by softly blotting the face to remove excess oil and shine, and gently wiping the eye area. Apply eye cream onto the under-eye area and smooth it until it is absorbed – this ensures that your skin stays hydrated. Sweep on lash serum to instantly thicken and condition lashes.

Add dimension to the eye area with a bit of shine. Rejuvenate your morning eye shadow by applying a very light, bright shadow to the lids, brow bones and the inner corners of the eyes. Intensify the look with a few coats of mascara.

Revitalize your skin by patting on a touch of foundation with a sponge; then, sweep on a small amount of blush or bronzer on your cheeks. Make your lips the focal point with a brilliant deep rose or bold red lip stain. Voila! You’re now ready for a night on the town!
