How to Create a Look That Will Last All Day

Eye Makeup Look

It can be tricky to decide on an outfit when you get up in the morning especially when you need a look which is going to last the entire day.  I recently put together a post with a look that you could wear from the office to going out for wine with friends but what about the rest of your look?  In addition to your outfit, you may also need to think about makeup for both day and night and a skincare routine which will last the day.  Sometimes its not about going from desk to bar but simply about completing all of the tasks that you need to do that day, be it meetings for work, shopping, running errands, picking the kids up, seeing family or socialising with friends.

Read on for a few tips for creating a look which will last you all day long.


In terms of an outfit, having a dress which can work with both heels and flats as well as tights and no tights will give you great flexibility for your outfit and allow you to easily dress up/down depending on the situation that you are in. Damart’s versatile dresses should be suitable for any occasion. Additionally, layering is smart because it means that you can change your outfit while on the move and quickly change your style.  A few key items to consider include blazers, cardigans, scarves and skinny jeans.


Fortunately, you do not need to completely reapply and redo your makeup as there are a few simple changes that you can make which will help to seamlessly change your look from day to night.  A light eyeshadow shade applied with a fluffy eyeshadow brush and a medium-toned shade will be subtle enough for daytime and then simply mixing medium and dark shades to use in your crease and dabbing a jewel-toned shadow or something sparkly onto your lid can create the perfect evening look.

In terms of your lips, during the day a simple swipe of gloss will suffice and then you can easily apply a bold lip colour that suits your outfit for the evening.  Having a varied makeup palette which you can easily take with you is key to transforming your look from day to night and will give you plenty of options.  If you go heavy on your eyes, I’d suggest keeping the lips nude and if you go for a bold lip, a simple winged liner looks lush on the lid with lashings of mascara.  If you have oily skin like I do then a mattifying pressed powder is key to refreshing your look and banishing shine before an evening out!


Everyone needs a great skincare routine which they can use which will help their skin to feel fresh for the entire day. A good daily skincare routine will include washing your face with a cleanser, an alcohol-free toner, a serum and then using a high-quality moisturizer. If you have problems like dark circles, puffiness or crow’s feet then you could also use an eye cream (find one for your specific problem and apply after moisturising.

Those that lead busy lifestyles will often need to have a look which will last them the entire day. This can be tricky as your appearance during the day may need to be quite different to your evening look, but the above information should help you to easily transform your look and ensure that you do not need to go home to change your appearance.
