Tips on Getting Ready in Five Minutes

How-To: Go From Desk to Dinner

We all do it. Promise that we’re going to have a “quiet night,” only to promptly change our minds as soon as the clock strikes 5.01pm/the hot guy calls. If this scenario sounds familiar, you need a plan lady. Go from desk-bound to dinner-ready in five minutes flat.

Good foundation will take the hard work out of everything else. ‘Tis the most simple mantra to live by. Revlon PhotoReady Makeup ($36.95) has been generating all kinds of buzz OS thanks to its ability to turn gnarly skin into a poreless, flawless face that will even look good under hideous bathroom lighting. Uh huh. It’s that good.

Dinner is a simple one. Bold lips are too much hassle—reapplying and lipstick-on-teeth lark—so keep the rest of your makeup palette simple. A dusting of Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder ($65) on the areas that the sun catches, including your décolletage, plenty of mascara and a nice line of shimmering shadow should see you right for the whole night.

Stay tuned for our desk to date night and desk to dance floor tips.
