Five Products to Glam Up Your Look in Five Minutes

It may seem hard to believe but I have five products that will get you party ready in five minutes flat so you can go right from your desk to the dance floor. Here is the timeline:

Kick up the drama with Trish McEvoy’s Intense Gel Eyeliner pencil in black. Inside, outside, above, and beneath – drag that liner all around the rim of your eye and use the smudge tip to get sultry eyes in one minute. Using the smudger also saves time because you do not have to be concerned about getting that line perfectly straight.

Pile on the mascara. Add volume and depth to your eye’s fringe by layering another coat of mascara. If you use a wax based mascara such as Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill, you do not have to worry about it clumping or flaking.

Pop that pout! Throw out the idea that dramatic eyes are forbidden with a bold lip. When it comes to evening and party looks, (almost) anything goes. With the sultry, smokey eye that you have just created using black eyeliner and mascara, your face is begging for some color! Swipe on a jewel toned plum or red to get yourself in the holiday spirit. Two of my favorites: Maybelline ColorSensational in Red Rival and Mac Satin Lipstick in Rebel

It is your time to shine. Glowing skin in all the right places is a quintessential part of spreading holiday cheer. Apply a highlighting powder like DiorSkin Poudre Shimmer above the cheekbones and above and the brow. Glow girl, glow!

Apply the final touch of glistening lips that shine whether you are in candlelight or disco lights. Dab a small amount in the center, staying away from the lip line. This will ensure your gloss and lipstick do not migrate outside. An easy pick on top of a red or plum lipstick is Urban Decay Stardust Sparkling Lipgloss. It has an eye catching shimmer that will complement the color of your lipstick without altering it. Shine on!

Test out my timeline on the way to your next party and let me know the result. I promise you will have your hands off of your computer and on that spiked eggnog in no time! Cheers to my gorgeous BELLA’s!
