Secret Beauty Weapons For Speedy Party Prep!

Party season is upon us and although it’s the season to be merry and bright, getting party ready alongside your everyday can be a little stressful to say the least. To help you on your way, look no further than our guide to the beauty weapons that will help you look your best in super quick time.


Philip Kingsley Elasticizer

This multi-award winning hero is a pre-shampoo conditioning treatment created originally for no other than Audrey Hepburn herself. Pop this on for 10 minutes before you shower (use a shower cap if you can as heat helps to activate the formula) and then continue to wash your hair as normal. You’ll notice hair is manageable and shiny, breaking less while styling.

From £9.50, Philip Kingsley




Origins Modern Friction Exfoliator

A cult classic and still my all-time favourite face scrub, Origins Modern Friction contains rice starch to slough away dead skin cells and lemon oil to brighten the complexion. Suitable even on the most sensitive skin, this miracle in a tube leaves skin silky smooth and luminous. Use a couple of times a week on dry skin and rinse.

From £15.50, Origins 




Skyn Iceland Hydrocool Firming Eye Gels

Pop these on in place of your regular eye cream for an instant pick-me-up. In just 10 minutes, these powerful gel pads help to diminish the look of dark circles, puffiness and fine lines for perfect party peepers.

£25.00, Cult Beauty 




Becca Velvet Blurring Primer

Becca primers are second to none, with their Backlight and Firstlight Priming Filters already make-up artist favourites. The latest of the range, Velvet Blurring Primer is a heavyweight for festive season make-up. The clever liquid to powder formula blurs fine lines, pores and imperfections to leave you with a gorgeous, soft-focus base for make-up.

£32.00, Cult Beauty 



Vita Liberata Body Blur

A good fake tan can take a while to apply and develop, without the guarantee that you’ll be happy with the outcome without a little practice. Don’t have time for that? Body Blur from Vita Liberata is your answer. An instant wash-off skin perfecter, this natural looking tan is almost a light foundation for the body and face, covering uneven skin and blemishes. It’s light reflecting particles mean skin looks flawless and party ready in no time.

£29.95, Vita Liberata 


Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Last but not least, All Nighter Setting spray from Urban Decay will help your make-up to stay put and look fresh all night long. Light-weight and oil free, this product cleverly helps to control the temperature of your make-up to stop it melting or settling into fine lines for 16 hours.

£23.50, Urban Decay
