Nothing's worse than running out of time in the morning. Whenever time is of the essence, don't sacrifice results simply because you're running late. Instead follow these quick and easy tips from our celebrity beauty experts to get you ready in 30 minutes or less for your office party or a big date.
Step 1: Define your Eyes
To turn your day look into a nighttime look Lori Taylor, Smashbox Cosmetics makeup artist who has worked with Rosario Dawson, Amy Smart and Isabella Miko recommends using the Smashbox jet-set gel liner applied with the #21 brush in the inner upper and lower rim of the eye. Each cream eyeliner doubles as classic eyeliner but also creates a soft smoky definition. If you need to wake up tired eyes, Taylor recommends using the proof cream eye liner palette, "its the #1 multi-tasker at Smashbox Studios". Complete the look with a thick coat of black mascara.

Apply liberally to the apples of the cheeks for a flushed effect. O-glow can also be used on the lips and is a great way to go from so so to oh so glam for late night and top the look off with a clear gloss for added shine.
