When it comes to the holidays, life can get pretty hectic. Between work or school, family, significant others and THEIR families, functions, functions, and more functions, it can seem like there is no time left in the day. Yet at the same time we are caught in that dilemma where we need to look dazzling at a momentís notice for the next holiday party. How do you do it when you donít even have time to pick up a coffee in the morning? You do it by mastering the art of time management, and when it comes to beauty, time management is the easiest thing in the world. Why? Because beauty routines can be adjusted and tweaked to ensure that your look lasts as long as you need it to. Here you will learn some basic tricks and tips that will take your beauty from day to night with just a few adjustments.

The key to moving from day to night effortlessly is to follow the trends without overdoing it. This year it is all about natural beauty, so flaunt what your mama gave you. Let your personality shine naturally, and you WILL make heads turn and leave people wondering...whoís that girl?

Evening looks will ensure that you look glamorous and feel elegant all night long. And there is no reason you canít use these looks and feel glamorous and elegant during the day. A simple tweak like changing your lip color will take a day time look to night in a matter of seconds. Here are a few trend tips and quick tweaks that will take you from day to night in no time flat.

Golden glows are all the rage this holiday season, and with this, you donít want to flashback to tanning beds. Adding a touch of gold to your face will highlight your best features and give you a soft, golden hue that speaks intimate notes all night long. To get this, keep your day face as your starting palette, and brush some bronze or peach shades on your temples, cheekbones, and chin for a sexy golden evening sparkle.

Sheer colors on your cheeks and lips will speak radiance for hours on end. Sheer colors will add natural shimmer to your beauty look, and again, natural is the key here. For lips, go with a sheer red that adds instant color to balance out your features. Sheer peach or sheer rose on the apples of your cheeks will give you that pretty, soft, just walked in the snow flush that is so innocent, and so appealing. Again, use your day palette as your starting base, and sweep on these colors before you head out the door to that happening soiree.

Finally, if you have absolutely no time at all and need a quick glam update that takes less than thirty seconds, choose a bold, bright lip color like brick red to finish your look. This you can do in the car on the way, and a bold lip will instantly minimize any other features. The added bonus? Women that wear bold lip colors are unconsciously considered more confident in life as well. So that quick fix you dabbed on in the car just earned you instant respect in a room full of eligible bachelors. Not bad for a girl that doesnít have time, no?
