Preparing for a date after work...

So you have a date after work but have no time to get ready in-between? Don't panic because these simple tips are sure to help you.
Tip 1 | Touch up your foundation with a concealer of a similar colour or use a tiny bit of your foundation to cover any patches that are beginning to appear allowing your base to look instantly flawless.

Tip 2 | If your face is feeling dry after a long day in the office apply a fine mist like MAC's Fix+ to give an instant moisture boost. 

Tip 3 |  Don't go over-the-top on eye makeup, a simple little cat flick is all you need and a smudge of eyeliner in your waterline if you want to go for a slightly smokey look.

Tip 4 | Use a Q-tip to remove smudges from under the eyes and apply lashings of mascara to your lashes to give them volume and give you a wide awake look. 

Tip 5 | Add a highlight to your cheek bones and the inner corner of your eyes to lift your face. I love Benefits 'Watts Up'.

Tip 6 | If you're wanting to add a pop of colour to your look, focus on your lips. Either a pinky-peach like YSL 'Peach Passion' looks lovely for a natural look or go for a daring red like MAC's 'Ruby Woo' if you're feeling adventurous. 

Tip 7 | Dry shampoo. Its a must! It instantly refreshes your hair whilst adding plenty of volume and bounce. 

And there you have seven simple tips to get you date ready in a matter of minutes. 

What are your tips for going on a date straight from work?

  1. This was a great read, honestly I've never gone on a date right after work because I've felt there's not enough time... these tips make me think I may have been wrong haha! x

    I'm new to the blogging community and hoping to make some friends, if you're interested?! :3

  2. I always have to re-do my brows and eyeliner - they're the most noticeable bits! There's always time to reapply on the train there, aha. x Rebecca - UK fashion blog

    1. Luckily I have a fringe to hide the brows but completely agree about eyeliner it just disappears! xo

  3. Loved this post. I really need to buy another Fix +, I love it but hate having to repurchase it as I do feel it's a little pricey! x

    1. Glad you like it! It is a bit pricey for what it is but it does last a while xo
