Beauty hacks: 4 Desk to drinks beauty updates

Even if you’ve had a long day at the office, don’t let that stop you celebrating that it’s (almost) the weekend! You can take your face from ‘mid-week office fatigue’ to ‘pass me the salt for this tequila shot’ in minutes with a few simple beauty updates.

Here are the must-have items for your make-up bag that will update your beauty look from desk to drinks!

1. Bold lip

This is your first port of call for updating your daytime look. A bright lip will never fail to add glamour to your face, as well as making you look a bit more awake if you’ve had a long day. Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Colour lipsticks are perfect for making a statement with your lip colour. We’ve picked Red Carpet for a classic beauty update.

2. Bright eyes

Adding sparkle is one of the easiest ways to take your look from day to night. You can even have a subtle golden shadow during the day, and then built on this after work by adding a stronger glitter shadow. Laura Mercier has amazing shades in their Baked Eyeshadow, and we’ve gone for Terracotta for a bronzed look.

3. Rosy cheeks

Pink is perfect for disguising tiredness and will instantly brighten your face. Even if you’ve been going blusher-free for the day, a quick swipe of this on your cheeks and you’ll look energised.Try Nars blush in Desire for a pop of pink.

4. Spritz

A subtle change, but adding your evening perfume will make you feel ready for a night out. It will leave you feeling refreshed and will wash off that ‘at the office’ feeling. At the moment I’m coveting Jo Malone‘s Mimosa and Cardamom cologne for a distinct scent.
