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

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
