Day to Night Makeup Transformation – Arizona Midday

Some days, you have to run straight from office to wine bar – and by 5pm, your face looks more like it’s been taken to the woodshed than the boardroom. What’s a gal to do?

We were invited on Arizona Midday to talk about how to easily transform that day look into a night look. With the help of my blogger friend Stephanie from Conference Calls to Meatballs acting as model (her daytime/before look was actually our mom makeup look from an earlier segment), we show how easy it is to transition one into the other:
