Q: “I work long hours and hardly have time to hang out with friends after work but I want to make the effort to improve my social life. How can I update my makeup quickly since I don’t have the time to go home and freshen up?” – Azizah Azhar, Litigator
A: The easiest way to change from a day to night look is with a lipstick colour. On a daily basis, use a nude lip gloss or a matte nude lipstick. The natural look is foolproof and flattering. To change it up, choose a darker colour like red or plum. Any of these shades will jazz up your look in a jiffy!
