The holiday season inevitably ends up being the busiest of the whole year. Between gift exchanges, office parties, ugly sweater parties, white elephant exchanges, your significant other’s office party, holiday brunches, family reunions… our social calendars are definitely jam packed. Heading to drinks with the girls straight from the office is a regular occurrence, right? (I mean, it is for me lol!) I work from home now, but when I worked in an office, there was NEVER time to run home to change and come 6:00, there I’d be, staring at myself in the office bathroom mirror wondering how I was going to fix this hot mess disaster before heading out for the evening. (OK, let’s be real, it was really more like come 8:00, because #NEWYORK.)
Because of all of those evenings, I’ve mastered the art of the ladies’ room quick change. With a few easy tweaks, getting from the office to the party is super easy, and no one will be able to tell the difference, trust. Today, I’m partnering with Neutrogena® to share a quick and easy beauty look that you can easily do in the most public of bathrooms.
Use Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes to clean up makeup fallout and remove your lip product.
Usually my eyeliner will smear a little and I’ll have some shadow fallout at the end of a long day, so the first thing I do is go in with the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes to clean up my eye area and to remove whatever lippie I happen to be wearing. I score mine at Walmart, where they have a great variety of Neutrogena products. These are my favorite wipes because they erase 99.3% of your most stubborn makeup in one easy step yet is gentle and soft on your skin. Plus, I like using Neutrogena products when I can, because derms always recommend them.
Apply a dark colored Neutrogena® MoistureSmooth Color Stick to pump up your pout.
After I’ve cleaned up my face and removed whatever lip product may or may not be left, I am loving the Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Sticks to give my lips some color. I also get these from Walmart. They feel so light and moisturizing on my lips, I’m totally into them lately. They soften and smooth your lips in as little as 3 days and are made with fruit extracts and mango and shea butter. The MoistureSmooth Color Sticks are smooth and balm-like. They twist up so no sharpener needed. They’re available in 16 colors, so definitely scoop up multiples. I love the darker berry shades for winter! For this look, I used PLUM PERFECT, a gorgeous deep plum.
Swap out your accessories and put on something party-ready!
Obviously, you’re not going to change clothes. But you can easily swap out your necklace and earrings for some glittery jewels that will make you feel 100% more festive. Your best bet is wearing all black to work that day and that way, when you swap out your accessories you’ll look way more dressed up and less like you came from work. (Win-win, right?) I’m loving a choker and statement earrings right now! (Wearing these earrings and this choker!)
You can find the Neutrogena products at your favorite Walmart! The Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes can be located right in the skincare aisle, and at my store they happened to be double exposed in Cosmetics as well. The MoistureSmooth ColorSticks are available in the cosmetics aisle.
Getting holiday ready is super easy, even if you’re short on time or headed out straight from work. All you need are a few easy tweaks and a few go-to products from Neutrogena. Keep the Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes and MoistureSmooth Color Sticks in your bag and you’ll always be ready at a moment’s notice. Thanks so much for reading!
