Parties are not limited to Friday nights anymore. The invitation to a birthday party, farewell, girls night out or a surprise dinner date may arrive when you least expect it. While you can escape a few of them, you don’t want to be known as the girl who doesn’t socialise, do you?

A party look demands you put your glam face on, but who has the time to go through an elaborate makeup routine in the office restroom, right? Well, guess what; you can change your basic everyday office makeup look into a glamorous one in just 5 minutes! Here’s what celebrity makeup artists recommend…

 

Change the eye look

The easiest way to spruce up any basic look is by adding some drama to your eyes. Carry a small eyeshadow palette in your bag that has both matte and glitter shades. Depending on the occasion and setting, you can decide which eyeshadow shade to wear. “Always keep smudge-proof black eyeliner with you. It allows you to instantly create a dramatic eye look and up your glam quotient,” says Bollywood’s favourite makeup artist Namrata Soni.

You may love your browns and nudes, but when it comes to switching your day look to a party look “adding a pop of colour using a bright or deep burgundy lip shade will change up your look in a minute,” says Tammanah Bhatia’s makeup artist Billy Manik. If you are someone who doesn’t like carrying around a lot of makeup products in their bag, “keep a red lipstick with you. It will quickly turn that bare-faced makeup look into a glamorous one,” adds celebrity hair and makeup artist Marianna Mukuchyan.

 

Mascara to the rescue

A long day at work can make you look more nap-ready than party-ready. So what’s the easiest way to look like you are pumped up and ready to party? “Swipe on your favourite mascara and liner to look more awake and refreshed in minutes,” recommends celebrity makeup artist Rosario Belmonte. It will instantly open up your eyes and make them look brighter and more defined.
