our hectic lifestyle it becomes difficult to manage work,
home, family and also take time out to throw and attend parties.
Looking great becomes tedious and a marathon effort. But fret
not, for we have brought for you tips to look gorgeous and
party perfect in whatever time you have on hand. Whether you
have five minutes to spare en route from the office to the
party or 20 minutes (wow!) to go all out, we've got the goods
to get you looking great in no time.
If You Have 5 Minutes for Makeup
Eyes: Line your top lid with navy eye liner
to add depth and dimension, and to get you looking bright-eyed
fast. Next, swipe an opalescent shadow over your lid and brow
bone. Finish with black mascara.
Dust shimmer across the tops of your cheekbones to
shape and illuminate them.
For tons of shine, pick a pink or clear gloss that
lets your natural lip hue show. If you want you can also choose
your favourite colour to go with the dress you are wearing.
If You Have 10 Minutes
If you have a few extra minutes, play up your eyes which are
the expressive part of your face.
First, apply golden shadow from lash line to brow bone, going
heavier on the lid and fanning it up toward your eyebrow.
Then define your top lash line with chocolaty-brown eyeliner.
Drag a Q-tip -- or the sponge end of your pencil -- over the
line to keep it soft and smudgy.
Applying blush requires a little more time and care than applying
a simple shimmer powder, but the goal is the same: to enhance
your already gorgeous skin. For a natural look, smile as you
rub a sheer creamy blush into the apples of your cheeks; blend
it out toward your hairline.
Apply a goldish-pink lipstick and skip lip liner and apply
color from the tube, softening with your finger.
Paint on two quick-drying coats of sparkle polish
to lend a flirty finishing touch to your look.
If You Have 20 Minutes
If you have 20 mins then try a funky party look. Slick on
a lip color you've never dared to wear and vamp up your fingertips
with a festive red polish.
You've got the time, so line both your top and bottom lash
lines with a soft-brown pencil, extending the liner just beyond
the corner of your eyes using the same smudging technique
as in the 10-Minute Look. Then swipe on a golden-brown shadow
from lash line to crease, blending upward.
Apply the same ultra-blendable cream-blush formulation
to the apples of your cheeks. Depending on your skin tone,
you may want to pump up your blush to balance out your strong
lip and eye colors.
Red-alert lips are a classic holiday custom. With
this pink-gold-brown color combo, choose a red with warm berry
or gold undertones to keep your colors from clashing -- and
forgo the lip liner.
Sexy red nails are worth the extra five minutes of careful
