We've all been there. Friday afternoon, the last hour of work. You constantly check your messenger apps to see if He hath texted. 5 o'clock rolls around, no. 6 o'clock, 7 0'clock, you pick up a fried chicken for lonely dinner at 8 o'clock, no! Then at the eleventh hour - okay, maybe more like 9:30 - you're in your PJs and have just downloaded a movie to watch when he texts:
"Want to go to Valk tonight?"
"Yes" - you press Send.
Even though you've got your face mask on.
In these emergency situations, you probably have just enough time to pick out your outfit and shoes. For your beauty look, not so much.
Our advice? Forget the Kardashian-level smoky eye and contour, and hit one feature instead.
Then compensate with color, applied cleanly - the Christopher Kane collection for NARS makes total sense.
