Party Essentials

16 Dec

In case you haven’t noticed, we have holiday parties on the mind. It can be tough to head straight to an evening event (a holiday party, a date, a dinner) from the office, but it’s something we all have to do. My advice: Always carry what you need to make the shift from day to evening. That includes five must-have cosmetics in your purse to freshen up with (in a cute cosmetic bag):

  1. A ruby lip color that makes me feel fancy
  2. Something to brighten my cheeks (I’m currently using this and I love it)
  3. Mascara to highlight my eyes
  4. My favorite perfume (in a size that fits perfectly into a small cosmetic bag)
  5. A little something to even out my skin tone

Then, add accessories that feel distinctly evening:

  1. A sparkly clutch (this one is great too)
  2. Total fancy pants tights (or sheer black pantyhose)
  3. Dressy pumps
  4. A statement necklace

Here’s how I looked for holiday party #1 of 5. I wore a sweater and pencil skirt to work, but changed into heels, freshened up my makeup and added a holiday necklace just before leaving the office.

How did I do?
