Day to night in 30mins

This weekend I had a few (read 10) of my uni friends coming to stay so it was quite hectic to say the least. As we were out all day on Saturday I had about 30mins to change and freshen up before going out. So here is my tried and tested day to night turnaround.

During the day I kept the makeup super simple with some foundation, blusher and bronzer on the skin, and mascara with a little black khol pencil smudged along the lashline.

For the evening I quickly changed into a short burgundy dress from ASOS with black tights and patent leather heels (not seen).

Instead of styling my hair I clipped in a couple of wefts of love hair extensions in different colours to add volume and dimension, then quickly curled the ends with the babyliss conical wand to blend them in.


For makeup I touched up the skin and then added drama to the eyes with an exaggerated winged liner set with sparkly black eyeshadow (I used a chanel one, but MAC black tied would work just as well) and of course false lashes from e.l.f.
I then added some deep pink blush from Sleek and finished off with MAC's creme d'nude lipstick.

All in under 30 mins... mainly to stop the guys from whingeing that I always take too long to get ready. What are your tricks for getting ready in a hurry? xxx


  1. I'm a big fan of simple make-up both for day&night, I loved this post!!!

    My #1 choice would be a bright rosy lippie, lots of mascara and eyeliner and a darker pink blush. It's so easy and quick but still looks polished ;)

  2. I loved the quick transformation! I just add another coat of mascara and darker lip colour and blush :D

  3. Stunning day and night - but I am particularly impressed with the eye makeup so quick!

    I can never get ready that quick - wish I could!!

    Extensions and eyelashes are divine too!!

  4. You look amazing as usual - please will you link me to the exact extensions you use? I found the website but there are too many options! x

  5. i wish i could get ready that fast! you are always so perfect!

  6. Wish I could look that good after 30 mins!

    Love the hair colour x

  7. Very nice 'day to night transformation'! The black eyeliner and e/s defines your eyes so nicely. I don't wear falsies myself, but the e.l.f one of you looks awesome!

    Love your daytime look too! ;)

  9. I love the dress you're wearing! Time to hop over to ASOS maybe ;)

  10. Awesome tips! You show just how easy it is to transition from day to night quickly and easily. It's not as hard as we think!
