Double Feature- Work/Family to Party Makeup & Style

I know that it is very easy to get double or even triple booked for events this time of year. 
I wanted to do a look that was in the holiday spirit & glamorous but toned down for work or family events. I also wanted it to be easy to transition this look into something for going to hang out with friends without having to go home & completely change everything. I wanted to be able to do a quick transition with minimal stuff that could be done in a car or small bathroom.

Products Used in Look 1:
Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer in Greed
Sephora Eyeshadow Brush
CQ Eyeshadow in Champagne
Revlon Perle Eyeshadow in Sunlit Sparkle
Revlon Satin Eyeshadow in Polished Bronze
CoverGirl LiquiLineBlast in Grey
Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Liquid Glitter Liner in Liquid Metal
Maybelline One by One Mascara
ELF Studio Stipple Brush
ELF Studio Blush in Tickled Pink
ELF Studio Blush Brush
Physicians Formula Mineral Glow Pearls in Translucent
 Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstain in Bitten Berry

For this look, keep the jewelry minimal. A basic pair of straight leg or skinny pants & a black cardigan pairs perfectly with a simple but glamorous pair of shoes & a stripped or lightly patterned shirt. Keep the shirt in a lighter color without a ton of glits & shoes in a dull silver, pewter, pale gold, or navy. This will make it much easier for the bulk of the outfit to transition between both looks.

 (I just have to say that I completely love this picture ^ & it's totally un-edited!)

Products Used in Look 2:
Stdio Tools Crease Brush
Loreal HIP Metallic Shadow Duo in Magnetic
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Oil Slick
Maybelline The Falsies Black Drama Mascara
Ulta Lipstick #214
Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush Dazzleshine Lip Gloss in Dazzling Sangria

The first step to transforming this is to add some heavier jewelry & changing the cardigan to a rocker style jacket. I kept the shoes, pants, & shirt the same. A few tweaks to the makeup & you're ready to go. Of course you could add lashes as well but, I don't know that I would trust myself trying to put lashes on in the car so I left them out.
