Maintaining a hectic work schedule and crazy social calendar is no easy feat, so we caught up with Atlanta Publicist & Entertainment Correspondent Lillie Mae for a few beauty & wardrobe pointers. She’s managed a diverse portfolio of clients for many years and has interviewed everyone from Russell Simmons to Wendy Williams on red carpets across the country. Check out her tips on how to stay Professionally Pretty:
While traveling by plane, what are the top 3 must have tools to get ready for a meeting right after the flight?
I suggest doing your make-up before the flight, as not to add anything more to your agenda upon landing.
Thereafter the 3 must-have tools would be:
a.) Mac skin finish & brush to touch up the face
b.) Lipstick to re-apply
c.) Light fragrance to spruce up a bit
When having a bad hair day and no time to style it before work, what is the easiest professional hairstyle?
Keeping it simple is the quickest way to make the best of a bad hair day! I always opt for either pulling the hair back into a bun or up into a tussled bun with a loose braid at the crown.
How can you go from business meetings during the day to client events at night with no time for a wardrobe change?
Wearing business chic attire allows for a quick transition from day to night.
For example blazers & pencil skirts allow you to maintain a dress code that is fitting for work by day and socializing by night. To add a bit of flare for the evening, keep a bold accessory or two on hand.
As far as make-up, how should one transition from the day office look to the night on the town look?
Adding a bold lip or dark eye can do wonders to transition the face! My personal favorite is adding a touch of bronzer or blush to the cheeks to dazzle up for an evening out. I keep a small make-up bag with those essentials,
so that I’m always prepared for whatever the day or evening may bring.
What’s best for make-up removal and easy to carry on the go?
I love Oil-of-Olay cleansing cloths! The packaging is handy and perfect for carrying in your purse.
