Office to Event Beauty Tutorial

It's the most wonderful time of the year!  I love the holidays, and while I don't love that my schedule becomes a nightmare this time of year, I do love that all of the holiday functions give me the opportunity to see everyone near and dear to me one last time before the year ends.  Because of my commute, I don't usually have a lot of time to get ready between events.  Thankfully, I have Centrum® MultiGummies® to keep me feeling good and a few simple beauty hacks to take me from day to night in less than 15 minutes!

In order to keep things quick and easy after work when I'm in a pinch, I do everything I can in the morning to prepare ahead of time.  For starters, I put my hair in a classic braid that will later be twisted into an updo.

Another tip for easily taking things from the office to an event is to use a primer before applying makeup.  I typically layer on a primer before applying my foundation and a primer before applying my mascara to make my makeup last longer.

Another tip for keeping your makeup in place is to use a powder to set it.

After taking those steps, I apply a neutral eyeshadow, one coat of mascara, and a natural lipstick.  Having a base of simple, natural makeup makes the process of going from day to night so easy!

And there it is - an easy, natural daytime look!

Taking this look from day to night is even less time consuming than completing the day time look!  The first order of business is turning my basic braid into a complex looking braided updo.  I simply twist my braid against the back of my head like I would when creating a bun.  I use about six to eight bobby pins because I like for it to be secure, but the first pin I use is to pin the tail underneath the knot.  From there, I secure the knot by placing pins in a clockwise motion until it feels like my hair is secure against my head.

That will take get you to this point.  I don't worry about perfection or if a few pins are poking out, especially since I spent less than two minutes on it.  

After getting my hair out of my face, I get started on "night" makeup.  I apply a darker eyeshadow on the eyelids, then follow up with some eyeliner and an additional coat of mascara.

When the eyes are done, I move on to the lips.  Since I keep the eye makeup pretty simple,  I go a little bolder with the lips.  Plus, a bold lip is a fun touch for holiday parties!

And with that, I'm one step away from ready to run out the door to an event!  Before I leave, I'm always sure to take my vitamins.  I prefer Centrum® MultiGummies®.  Centrum® MultiGummies® makes it easy for me to support my health while enjoying my busy lifestyle.  These multi-benefit multivitamins include 100% or more of essential nutrients, Vitamins B12, D, and E.  B Vitamins aid in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins.*  It doesn't hurt that I can purchase them up at Walmart while I'm picking up yet another pack of bobby pins to complete my braided updo.  Healthcare has never been easier!
