#1 Even out complexion
Keep a liquid concealer like RMK Super Basic Liquid Concealer N SPF30 in #03, $57, handy – it helps even out skin tone, hide blemishes and add coverage to areas where your foundation or concealer has worn off.

#2 Brighten lips
Creating a bright lip is the fastest way to take you from day to night. Apply a liquid lipstick like Chanel Rouge Double Intensite Ultra Wear Lip Colour in #52 Pink Twist, or #59 Shocking Pink, $49 each, and finish off with the gloss at the other end of the tube for a pretty shine.

#3 Get flawless skin
Lightly dab face with a tissue or oil-blotting paper to remove shine, then pat on a pressed powder like Diorskin Nude Air Powder in #020 Light Beige, $86.

#4 Instant glow
Counter a dull complexion by dabbing a highlighter like VDL Lumilayer All Over Stick, $36, on your cheekbones. This brightens skin without leaving it sticky.

#5 Youthful-looking, rosy cheeks
Instead of a powder blusher, use a cream blusher like Diorblush Cheek Stick Blush Creme in #765 Cosmopolite Rosewood, $60, and Lunasol Coloring Creamy Cheeks in #02 Soft Orange, $58. Cream makes your complexion look instantly radiant, supple and naturally flushed. 

#6 Pretty eyes
If you don’t wear eyeshadow during the day, or fear that it will melt away by evening, try a shimmery cream-based eyeshadow. This requires no blending skills and glams up eyes instantly. Try: Mizon Oh! Shy Real Drawing Eye Crayon in Nudi Girls, $12.90, or M.A.C Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Stroke My Ego, $38.
