Working mothers and ladies of all ages know that working a 9-5 can be stressful, and surprisingly I find after sitting at a desk all day, you can look a little run down heading to happy hour. Therefore I have decided to put together a basic beauty emergency kit at my cubicle to freshen up my daytime look and quickly transform for a night on the town.

Here are 5 easy steps...

1. Pressed Powder Compact

This is great with a sponge or powder brush for those of us who can get a bit oily around the t-zone area during the day. Just touch up and dab problem areas to give yourself a fresh face.

2. Highlighter

This is great for when you want to look awake, I place this on the high points of my cheekbones, down my nose & at the top of my cupids bow (upper lip) to give my face a little dimension and summery glow.

3. Eye Drops

Nothing can make your eyes look more bloodshot than staring at the computer monitor all day. I put a drop of this in each eye, and redness fades and I look a little more like I have had a full nights rest instead of like a zombie.

4. Mascara + Lash Curler

Lifting your lashes with a lash curler can make a huge difference! Add mascara for more volume and length. 

5. Bold Lipstick

A bold lip color, such as red, berry or a vampy dark purple, can make your look seem very put together and appears like you put a lot more effort than you actually did.
