Going from the office to the party with our Top 5 Beauty Hacks…We’ve all been there. You’ve got a Christmas party or dinner after work and not enough time to go home and get ready. Everyone wants to look their best at an event, so we’ve come up with the Top 5 Holiday Beauty Hacks to get you through this super busy, but fun time!

 

Preplanning

Want to make sure you look on point for the work Christmas do, Christmas meals with friends and New Years Eve? Preplanning goes a long way. Coming into the end of November, beginning of December it’s smart to go ahead and book in for your Acrylic or Gel Nails and Lash Lifts & Tints. These are effortless when it comes to making your office to evening look polished.

Acrylic nails can last ages and only need to have quick top ups in between. They typically don’t chip, so you don’t have to go around hiding your hands when they look a bit unkempt. If you’d rather not go for acrylics, gel is a brilliant alternative. This is all about accentuating your natural nail with polish that won’t chip or dull for two weeks. Removal for both is simple with just an acetone soak.

Lash lifts and tints are life savers. They take around an hour to an hour and a half to complete but they last up to a mind-boggling three months. No curling and sometimes you don’t even need mascara!

 

Eyes: Tea Bag Trick

You’ve been working all day and you’re probably not feeling as fresh as you should. If you’ve got five minutes to yourself, like your lunch break, a great way to refresh your tired, puffy eyes is with tea bags.

So how’s it work? Take two tea bags, place them in boiling water, remove and allow to cool. Once they’ve cooled, place them on your eyes for approximately five minutes. Voila! No more tired eyes, and you’re ready for those party selfies.

 

Skin: Blotting paper

If your skin tends to make you look a bit glowy at the end of the day because of excess oil production, a great way to combat this is blotting paper. Blotting paper will soak up all your excess oil and make you look less shiny. Don’t have professional blotting paper on hand? No worries! Simply use a tissue to blog your skin and ta-da you’ve got a matte finish ready for the dance floor.

 

Hair: Dry Shampoo

If your hair has lost its oomph by the end of your day at work that’s okay. It’s very common for hair to appear more oily, flat and dull as the hours tick by and the quick fix to make your hair look amazing again is simply some dry shampoo.

Spray right at the root line and rub in. This will give your hair an instant volume boost and a great texture that will last throughout your event.

 

Nails: Press Ons

Didn’t have time to get your nails professionally done before your event? Your hands can still look gorgeous without the time it would take to paint them or get them done. Press on nails have been a saviour for us all throughout the years. Now, they’re really stepping up their game. You can get them in festive sparkles, French manicures and delicate patterns. Simply press and hold and you’re off!

These are the beauty hacks we can get behind! Save time and money and still show up looking like a million dollars.
