Want to know how to take your daytime makeup look from the office to the office party? We went to the expert Sandy Linter, Lancome’s Beauty at Every Age Expert and asked her for advice on how to easily transform your look. For Sandy it’s all about the eyes for this holiday look.

 Holiday Looks from Lancome

Assuming you always line your eyes, perhaps with a pencil, get an Artliner 24h Bold Color Precision Eyeliner from Lancôme. Choose the black to strengthen your existing eyeliner. Apply using a Dual-End Eyeliner Brush #24 if you don’t handle liquid liners well. That’s the important piece of this tip. Get the great liquid liner look using a liner brush instead of the felt tip from product. Just run the liner brush along the stem of felt tip. I have better control this way. The 24h Liner is highly pigmented and will last all night with no problem. Your usual pencil will fade. I recommend black for everyone. They also have colors if you want to match an outfit, but I always need black to define the eye. 

Holiday office look

I also love the Lancôme Color Infinite. They are metallic shadows that I apply by wetting my brush with Makeup Mist & Fix from Make Up For Ever. They go on smooth, stay all night, mixing them with the fixative is the secret. It’s clear like water but it is thicker and spreads the powder shadow brilliantly, the shadow shades range from a light gold, taupe gold metallic shades and into the blues purples and greens. They’re easy to apply when using my mixing trick.
Holiday day to night look
Here’s a look to take you from daytime office to nighttime office party. The sheath dress is by Ivy Blu and for the day look keep it simple with a black pump, large stud earrings and a simple watch.  Up the sparkle factor for night with golden and champagne colored accessories.  Stay away from a necklace since the neckline of the dress already has a nice drape to it.  Change out the pump to a champagne sparkle pump, add drop earrings with shimmer and a large cuff bracelet to finish off the look.
