From daytime drab to date night fab: Quick makeup fixes

Just because you're tired at the end of a long work day, doesn't mean your make-up has to be. Jessica Metivier shows some easy ways to spruce yourself up so you look fresh and fierce before hitting the town for happy hour.

The biggest key to transforming your look from drab to fab is...well, let's just say the eyes have it.

For an easy fix, dot eyeliner on the upper lash line to create the illusion of thicker lashes. Then, follow it up by blending eye shadow into the upper and lower lash line with an angled brush.  
"If you've found that your mascara has gone a little clumpy during the day, go ahead and use a lash comb to separate your lashes. I like using metal best," says Metivier. Polish it off with an extra coat of mascara on the ends of your lashes for a sexy, cat-eye look.

A night on the town after work doesn't always require a trip home in between. Just a few small tweaks to your day make-up are all you need to pump up your look!

More tips from Metivier include:
  • Carefully re-curl your lashes and add some extra mascara to the tips of
    your lashes
  • Blotting sheets soak up excess oil on your face, and keep your make-up
    looking fresh
  • A bright, bold lip color is a quick, one-step way to instantly add glamour
    to simple daytime make-up
  • Use a cotton swab to whisk away any wayward eyeliner and smooth out
    any eye shadow creasing 
  • Cheek color is often the first thing to fade. Sometimes adding a little
    color is all you need to brighten up your face!
