Business by day, Party by night: switching between office and party wear
Imagine a day when you are tired to the core after 'back-to-back' presentations at the office, but you also have to make it to a party after the excruciating hours, all because it's your best friend's bash and she is ecstatic about it. There is always the option to bail out but then again you were never the type to break hearts! A huge dilemma presents itself in all this, where you have to literally struggle to maintain peace at every end. This basically makes us wonder 'How do the Pros do it.'
The hack is actually pretty laid-back and here we will be sharing few tips and tricks with you.
First: Stay calm and breathe
After a long day at the office, make sure you have stayed hydrated throughout. This will in turn make sure that you don't have the tired look imprinted on your beautiful face. Our easiest hack is to have a cup of chamomile tea or a nicely brewed cup of coffee to change the moods from formal to casual before prepping yourself up, for the get-together.
Dressup: Don't fret too much on what to wear
If it's an informal get-together, you needn't worry at all! Just change your top into a sleek satin shirt or a sheer chemise over your inners or anything that looks a bit informal and then match it with your formal work pants and leave office for your next destination.
When it's Formal: Plan ahead
If the party pre-arranged is a bit formal and you are expected to wear a glitzy sari or maybe even a lehenga, you still needn't fret. Because there is always the option to plan ahead and prepare a separate bag with extra clothes and jewellery and bring it to office. Just change when everyone has left and then attend like any other busy person who is full-time employed.
Makeup: Hacks you need to know
Nude Makeup is best makeup style for the workplace, but when you have to go to a night-time party it might make you look a little worn out and dull. So what do you do? Easy! Keep makeup wipes handy. Use it to mildly blot your face to remove residual grime and dirt and then put on an extra layer of BB cream over your day-makeup. Darken the lipstick with suitable night-time colours like wine or maroon red and put on some eye shadow and a matching blush. There you go, you are almost done.
Accessories: Change the game
Keep these in an extra bag and then watch yourself switch from a plain office-going lady to Cinderella! Carefully keep your studs away and replace them with danglers. Put away your ballet flats and change into funky stilettos with a matching clutch. You are good to go anytime when the alterations have been made.
Hair Flare: Curls are next level party essentials
You want to look 'ravishingly hot' at the party! There's just a little bit of effort that you need to put in. Sleep in your curls the night before, tie them properly into a braid or bun for the office and then let it go afterwards. You just need to keep a suitable hairbrush with you all the time to detangle the unruly curls if need be.
The basic point in all these suggestions is that there is no need to worry when daily routines seem too hectic. We just need to plan ahead and prepare for things earlier and everything else will fall into place.
And that's why the women carry such big purses, you know! Especially the Pros. Why do you think the Birkin Bag is so big?
Yes! Now you finally know the secret. Women carry their world in their bags.
