Party Prep!

Whether it’s night out or the big day, enjoy a beautiful celebration. Check out these tips for getting party-prepped and picture-perfect in a snap!

It’s easy to go from professional woman by day to glamour girl at night with the right tricks in your makeup bag. No complete redo required. I wanna share with you how to sparkle up your nine-to-five look for an after-five celebration.

Natural Eye Look

A natural eye look for the day doesn’t mean you’re limited to only neutral shades. Try lightly applying a colorful accent shade that you can deepen for evening.

For a daytime look, apply a thin line of eyeliner along the top lashes and use your highlight and accent colors to softly line the bottom lashline.

Transform this look for night by applying a slightly thicker liner of eyeliner along top lashes or using a darker shade over the existing line. Line the lower lashes with eyeliner as well and softly smudge if desired.

Smokey  Eye Look

Apply another coat of mascara for more dramatic evening lashes. Change your lip liner, lipstick & gloss to bolder shades with shimmer and high shine. While the general rule is to play up either eyes or lips, an evening event is perfect for going glam. So don’t be afraid to pump up the color to make eyes and lips more dramatic.

Illuminate a tired look with a touch-up from the Mary Kay Facial Highlighting Pen under eyes & along the smile lines.

Freshen up your face and help control shine with a little press powder. Or dust face, neck & de`collete with bronze highlighting powder. Give cheeks a touch more color- and let the evening begin!
