Style After Dark

Quick ways to make your day look sexier

If you’re like most women, your schedule is busy from early in the morning until the wee hours of the night. We often have to go straight from our day activities to our fab evening plans with no time to go home and change (especially if we receive a last minute offer for a party!) Here are some quick ways to take your daytime look and transform it into a sexy nighttime look.
Revamp Your Lips
The fastest, simplest way to transition your look is to swipe on a bold, red lip to make the statement that you are ready for fun! One to try is JAFRA’s Royal Jelly Luxury Lipstick in Regal Red for a lip that moisturized and sexy. If red is not your first choice, try JAFRA’s Full Coverage Lipstick in a sultry shade like Very Berry or a matte pink shade like Flirt for a sexy, yet sweet impression.
Intensify Your Eyes
Take your neutral daytime eyes into overdrive by lining them with JAFRA’s Cream Eyeliner in Black. Take your look a step further by smudging the liner into the corners of your eyes for a smokey look. For even more sex appeal, try lining your top and bottom water lines with a black eyeliner pencil.
Add a Statement Accessory
Evoke your inner Wonder Woman and switch out your day accessories with statement pieces! Start by swapping out your more subtle necklace for a bold, chunky choker or a bib necklace. Go for something with shine or brightly colored stones. Pair your bold piece with a black sheath dress or a white button-down shirt to instantly transform your style. Next, kick your flats to the curb and strap on a pair of heels to feel confident and ready for the night. Finally, trade in your big work bag for a chic clutch (big enough for the essentials; your lipstick and cellphone) to make it easy for you to enjoy the evening ahead.
Spray on a Hot Fragrance
Your last quick change will be to spritz on a sultry fragrance to get you in the mood for a unforgettable night! If you are feeling flirty, try JAFRA’s Paris et Moi to be truly irresistible. If you are feeling chic and playful, try JAFRA’s Diamond Blush and get ready to sparkle all night long.
