Makeup at Work! Quick Work 2 Evening Transition

Hi Bellas,

As many of you know, I work full time but I'm also a full time beauty-blogger.  There are definitely days when I need to go straight from work to a beauty event.  I've definitely worked out a quick work to evening routine.  Check it out!
Whenever I know I have to go to an event right after work, I typically bring my travel makeup bag/brushes that I use for vacation.  It's packed, and ready to go.  I might add one or two items if I'm going for a certain lip color but most of the colors are pretty neutral so they'll go with any look.
Here are my face products.  I love the Bobbi Brown Touch Up Compact because it contains concealer, foundation and powder.  I use a mini blush from Palladio.  I could use just this if I wanted but I also love my MAC MSF Natural in Medium Dark and Blunt Blush to contour.
Here's the final look!  I admit, wearing lashes really dresses up the look.  I did this look at my desk at work, lol. The interesting part is making my way down the elevator without anyone commenting about my made up face.
For clothing, typically I'll just wear a cute blouse with my slacks and then switch to skinny jeans for the evening.  I switch out my large work purse for an evening clutch or crossy-body mini bag and I'm good to go!

Do you guys have any easy work to evening tips?  Let me know in the comments below!
