What are the No.1 Tricks to Looking Party Pretty?
The party season is here and happening. Tis the season to be jolly, yet still look immaculate. If you’re not quite sure how to make it through this silly season, beauty speaking, don’t despair. We’ve spoken with our i-glamour experts (hair stylists, hair colourists, beauticians, product testers, plus the i-glamour staffers) to answer the question we’ve been asked multiple times: how to look fabulous, and stay that way throughout the party season?
Conceal Hair Flaws
The trick to fabulous looking hair, especially if you don’t have time or money to spend on a trip to the hairdresser, is to conceal, conceal, conceal.
Hide split ends with weekly moisture rich treatments – only 7 minutes per week can mean the difference between fabulous and fried. Try – Argan Oil by BaBylissPRO Restorative Mask
Instantly hide regrowth in your part area or around your hairline, no colour experience required. Pesky greys can be a party dampener. Try Irene Gari Cover Your Grey Stick Applicators. Costs under $10 and comes in six colours to suit all hair shades from blonde to black.
A Blow Wave is Your BFF
To perfect a salon blow wave at home can be a little daunting, but nothing else quite puts that same spring in your step. Plus once you’ve perfected your blow dry, a dry shampoo can stretch a few days out of the look. If the land of hairdryers and radial brushes is all a little too new to you, then read our How to blow dry like a professional hairdresser guide. If your skills are on the medium or advanced side, or you want to try something different, read our How to rock the hot roller look using hair brushes post.
Nothing else says wide awake eyes, even if you’ve only had 4 hours sleep, than false eyelashes. A defined lash line and a strong lip colour (like Styli-Style Lipstick in Romance) are also a match made in heaven when it comes to making you look (and feel) like a million dollars, even if you are a little dusty around the edges.
- For a natural full strip lash line try – Lash Me Grace Eyelashes
- For a winged look with sparkle try – Lash Me Crystal Half Eyelashes
- For beginners try individuals, and just add to the outer corners – Lash Me Lash Ends – Assorted Sizes
Neat, groomed brows will frame your face for a pulled together feel. If you don’t have time to do your brows before you leave home or work, pop the Tweezerman Mini Brow Kit in your handbag and you’ll have everything you need to create brow perfection in the back of the cab. Um, footnote, please make sure the cab is at a complete stop before attempting this.
A simple trick that won’t cost a thing: make sure you drink plenty of water throughout the party season. One large glass of water between each alcoholic drink can do wonders for minimising a hangover. Drinking at least one litre of water a day will also help your skin stay soft and smooth. Party sensibly, i-glamours.
