Desk to date: how to go from office to date makeup in easy steps

Where are you headed after work this Friday? A date, we hope! In case you are, we are going to help you glam up after work, so you step out of office and into your date night looking like you had all the time in the world to get ready.

The look at office is all about keeping your skin looking matte and your eyes looking wide. The best way to go about office makeup is to invest in a good foundation, concealer, eyeliner and mascara. Whereas a date night makeup requires some amount of drama, either on the lips or on the eyes, and an easy way to give your look some oomph is by adding red lips or some glitter into your look.

Here are some simple ways you can glam up your look and go from office to date in the shortest possible time!


Cherry lips


Nothing says 'date night' like a red lip. So keep your favourite red lipstick in your purse and wear it just before you head out for your date! The perfect pick? Try the Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color in Firestarter Red!


Glittery eyeshadow


When you flutter your eyes at your date, you want him to catch the hint of glitter on your eyes. So keep your glittery eyeshadows handy and swipe it on before stepping out of the office!




Candles or no candles at your dinner, always look like you are sitting in front of them with highlighter strategically placed on the high points of your face. Carry Lakmé Absolute Moon-Lit Highlighter in your office purse to give your features an instant lift.




Keep a blush and brush duo handy at work. Date night or meeting, a sweep of blush across the apples of your cheeks always gives a fresh, youthful look. Also, it helps when your date pays you a compliment!




Add drama to your eyes with lengthening and volumising mascara like the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara. It makes your eyes look more wide and appealing.
