Last-minute New Year's Eve beauty prep
“It’s New Year’s Eve? I swear it was only Christmas yesterday!”
If this is what’s running through your mind this morning, don’t stress. You’re not the only one who’s been too busy enjoying the holiday and catching up with friends and family that you forgot to prepare for one of the biggest nights of the year. Just take a deep breath – you still have time to get ready, you just might have to do things a little differently…
The last thing you want is to be the girl at the party with greasy hair, so do yourself a favour and before you do anything else, give your locks a morning rinse. You won’t be sorry you did.
bh tip: Just-washed strands are often harder to style, but with the help of Moroccanoil Root Boost and Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray you’ll get enough grit in there to ensure it holds, right into the countdown...
LAST-MINUTE HAIR REMOVAL
Oh, the #firstworldproblems that come with being a waxer. The timing just never matches up, does it? If you’re not so keen on entering 2015 with stubble, it’s time to break out the razor. For extra silky smooth legs, try the Gillette Venus & Olay Razor SugarBerry. The moisture bars around the razor will help to lock in hydration and prevent your legs from feeling dry.
Forget fake tans that need time to develop – instant is definitely your best option. If you’re a fan of mousse, go for Face of Australia Bronzer Instant Tan Mousse. To save time, dry exfoliate with a glove like SunFX Exfoliating Glove and then sweep the mousse on and leave it to dry. Be careful when you’re dressing and avoid wearing lighter colours just in case the tan rubs as you sweat up a storm on the dance floor.
LAST-MINUTE GLOWING SKIN
Before you start sifting through your wardrobe to find an outfit, pop on the Dermalogica Skin Refining Masque. You’ll only need to keep it on for a few minutes (while you’re tending to other urgent matters, like shoes) for it to magically transform your dull, lifeless skin into a glowing complexion.
Don’t worry, beautyheaven has your back. If there’s one night to experiment and showcase a new you, this is it. Check out our gallery of New Year’s Eve make-up looks for some speedy inspiration.
BONUS BEAUTY TIP
Last but definitely not least, take some Hydrodol before you head out. You’ll be thanking yourself in the morning.
