You want to go, but you're fretting because your make-up is either too boring or has basically worn off from the day. Well, here are 7 easy steps to take your day make-up to evening in less than 10 minutes!

  • Step 1: Use a cotton swab to remove any mascara or shadow from under the eye area.
  • Step 2: Touch up under the eyes with concealer or any blemishes around your face.
  • Step 3: Use pressed powder to gently blot, not using a sweeping motion, to cover any shininess from the day.
  • Step 4: Use black eyeliner on the upper eye lid applying a thicker line and smudging it with a cotton swab. Line lower lash line with a thin line and apply on the inner lower eye lid as well. Apply a thin line again over the upper eye lid to add definition.
  • Step 5: Carefully add more mascara without making it look too clumpy.
  • Step 6: Apply a sheer, nude lip gloss.
  • Step 7: Always remember to focus on either your eyes or lips when applying bolder colors, but not both.
