Do you feel it in the air? It's PAR-TAY season! We're pumped but also a wee bit stressed. Our calendars are full-to-ze-brim and while we've got the perfect party combo sorted, the reality of having much time to apply said perfect party combo is slim-to-none. If you're anything like us, it's one soirée after another, and while we love being out and about, a girl needs to have some sorta plan in place to ensure she always looks her best. And this is it, peeps! A quick and easy multitasking guide for going from work to Christmas functions in a flash . . .
Base is ace: Start the day off by creating a solid base for your makeup to stay on. Read: primer. It's the tried-and-tested product that makeup artists, beauty eds and A-listers swear by. We love Hourglass Solar Tan Self-Tanning Primer ($89) because it helps build a subtle golden glow over five days. Buh-bye hangover skin.
Keep reading . . .Revitalise: Before the party, refresh skin and makeup with a very light spritz of Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist ($23). It'll give your makeup that freshly-applied feel.
Conceal and brighten: Use a dual-ended stick, like Maybelline NY's Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector ($19.50), to cover imperfections and highlight around the eyes, nose, chin and forehead. This one's the perfect size to pop in your clutch for any late-night touch-ups.
Fix up, look sharp: Dry shampoo is the not-so-secret-secret of hairstylists around the world. Use TRESemmé's new Fresh Start Dry Shampoo ($11.49) to make hair smell citrus-fresh, remove any oily build-up and add a little volume or 'grit' to help hold a curl.
Smell scent-sational: Nothing says multi-tasking like Marc Jacobs Daisy Solid Perfume Ring ($65). The fragrance-filled ring doubles as a cute accessory. Noice.
