If there’s one thing that is almost more fun than your night out or big party, it’s the pampering rituals you can indulge in beforehand to get you looking and feeling your absolute best.
Looking flawless on the night is as much about the canvas as it is the paint, so prep is key to getting that amazing glow, glossy locks and great skin. All of this is fun but it can be quite time-consuming – however, there are ways that you can multi-task your way to perfection.
Book In For A Treatment
Get the heavy lifting taken care of by booking into a salon for some little treatments that can make a huge difference in how you look and feel. An LVL Lashes treatments lifts and tints your lashes with beautiful results – it really opens up the eyes. Or, for more drama, you can have semi-permanent individual lash extensions applied. They last around six weeks and can be a nice alternative if you struggle to apply strip lashes.
Have a Multi-Tasking Bath
The night before your big event, make the time for a reviving bath. But far from being dead time, you can pack your bathtime with multi-tasking treatments to get your glow on.
- First of all, wash your hair and apply a deep conditioning hair mask at the start of the bath. Tie your hair up and cover with a shower cap to allow the treatment to really sink in and make your locks soft and shiny. You can either find a treatment like the legendary Phillip Kingsley Elasticizer or make a home-made remedy with mashed avocado and olive oil.
- Once that’s on, move onto your face. Start off with a gentle exfoliating scrub like the facial range from Grounded to smooth out skin. Once that’s rinsed off, follow with a deeply hydrating sheet mask to smooth out fine lines and give you a glow.
- While the face and hair masks are working their magic, it’s time to exfoliate your limbs to give them that polished glow. Find a great body scrub or mix brown sugar and coconut oil for a DIY option.
- If you need to de-fuzz, now is the time. Using Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel leaves limbs silky soft after use and make sure a razor glides over you.
Get The Glow
Once you’ve rinsed off, it’s time to get that celebrity-worthy glow if you want to be truly ready for your club VIP table bookings! Wash-off tan makeup means that you won’t be stuck with any mistakes. Choose a self-tanner with blurring pigments and a hint of shimmer for absolutely flawless looking legs and arms – Vita Liberata Body Blur acts as a cross between a BB cream, body makeup, and tan. Complete the look by sweeping a shimmery highlighter down your arms, across your décolletage and down the front of your shins for that perfected, elongated Victoria’s Secret model look.
