From day to night: How to get the look

Recently since Fashion week has been sweeping the cities i have been looking to update some of my beauty and hair regimes. Today i have the pleasure of bringing some tips in association with Beauty recommends that i have found super super helpful.

Whether it is just another day in the office or a night out with friends, keeping up appearances can be easy once you know the secrets. Try some simple ideas to keep you looking fresh and radiant.

Backstage hair tips

When drying hair, always work in small sections as this gives you more control and prevents tangling. Make sure each section is dry before moving onto the next as if it is still a little damp, that’s when frizz takes over.

If you are going out and need to get ready quickly, try parting your hair to the side and pinning back with an easy clip. At times, something simple like a traditional ponytail or messy bun with pretty accessories can make a big statement. Even an effortless half up half down look with sparkling earrings can give an evening look the glam factor.

It needn’t be complex; for example it doesn’t matter if bits of your hair are loose or dangling as it is stylish to have hair undone. That way, your hair works with any dress or even jeans and a beautiful top. Beauty Recommended has some great ideas for simple hairstyles that are hot on every celebrity and fashionista’s lips.

Eye make-up
Everyone talks about the eyes, from the smoky effect to bold statement eyeliner, but knowing when to use what style is key. This is where eye make up tips come in handy, so follow these golden rules!

Are you wondering how to emphasise your eyes in a natural-looking and easy way? Always use a volumising mascara to illuminate and widen your eyes, but don’t forget to curl lashes beforehand! And for the evening, try false lashes for a more glamorous and fuller appearance.

When applying shadow to your lids, blend blend blend – the last thing you want are noticeable lines. For a swift transition from day to night, adding a glitter shimmer onto your eyelids provides a party look that is not too young.

The finishing touches

Black, white and navy may be safe tones to dress in, but they don’t ‘pop’ and give an outfit the zing that puts you in the spotlight on a night out. If you wear a neutral base colour, spruce it up with a bright bag or bold shoes. This is a great idea if you’re leaving work and going straight out for a drink. Wearing a vibrant bag and loosening your hair are more simple ways to convert your style.
