Party-Hopping? You Need These Easy Beauty Tricks

Fun times, good friends, delicious food, indulgent cocktails — what's not to love about holiday parties? Well, getting primped, for one. As exciting as the prospect of merrymaking can be, if you're like us, this time of year also brings on some major beauty-related stress.

How can we possibly give ourselves a makeover at our desks before hitting the first cocktail party of the evening? And, as much as we don't want to sport the same liquid-liner/smooth-blowout combo as we dash from fete to fete, it's easy to get stumped when we're overbooked (and out of time).

Well, being the proactive party people that we are, we decided to take this quandary to the lovely Bethany Brill, hair-and-makeup artist extraordinaire. And she expertly rose to the challenge with some very easy ideas to help transform our very own Charlene Chang from office-casual to totally evening-appropriate. From subtle contouring to a brilliantly bold lip, Bethany's tips take only a couple minutes to do (and require almost zero precision), so you can transform your look even while crammed in your cubicle. Cheers!
