Whoever said it isn’t easy being beautiful knew what they were talking about. It takes a lot of work getting ready sometimes, right ladies? Which is why making products work for you and choosing products that will do double duty is so important.
 
Here in Chrissy’s Beauty School, I know you’re a busy collegiette with more to worry about than how to transition your makeup from day to night. But that doesn’t mean you still don’t worry about it. Well, ladies, fret no more, you can take your look from day to night with just a few little touchups before you head out on a Friday night, and I have the products to help you do just that!

These eye shadow palettes come with three shades and really let you define each and every crevice of your eye. During the day, try the lightest shade in the palette and deepen the look for night by layering the darker shades on top. Try Neutral Liaisons or Purple Possibilities (pictured above).
