Desk To Dance Floor Beauty

Thursday 21 November 2019

So, the majority of us work at least a 9-5 job, and so when those Christmas parties start up, we don't often have much time to get glammed up before the big evening event. Therefore, today's post is all about products that are going to take you from desk to dance floor in time at all!
If you have a last minute invitation, and are pale AF like myself, fear not, because Norvell have it covered with their Vivid By Norvell 1 Hour Rapid Self-Tan Mousse* (£29.99 for 118ml). This salon-quality micro-fine rapid mousse can be applied to dry skin and then rinsed off after just one hour for a light bronze colour. You can leave it on for a further hour for a medium tan and then another 2 hours for the darkest tan if you have the time. Results last for 5-7 days, so you are going to get plenty of parties out of this self-tanning mousse. Vivid by Norvell features a colour theory that neutralises orange hues and uses violet and brown-toned bronzers to keep you looking fresh and tanned. There is also a sweet, vanilla scent to it, so no need to worry about smelling bad either! You can find it online at Norvell here.
For the face, I recommend the Lancaster Instant Glow Peel-Off Mask* (£28.00 for 75ml), which is available in three different shades. Here, I have the Gold version, which is the most beautiful shade of champagne gold. The Lancaster Instant Glow is the perfect skincare preparation before a big night out. It is enriched with Hesperidin and Sodium Hyaluronate to hydrate and revive tired-looking skin, to leave it looking dewy, and well-moisturised in just 20 minutes! So you can pop this on whilst you are running your bath, or getting ready and as it is a peel-off mask, there is no fuss or mess involved, as you can just peel it straight off. Not only will your skin look incredible, but it will be smooth and juicy for the ultimate makeup lay down. You can find it online at Look Fantastic here.
For an ultra-quick fix, the Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels* (£14.00 for 4 pairs) and the Skyn Iceland Plumping Lip Gels* (£14.00 for 2) are fabulous. The Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels are so easy to use, you just pop them underneath the eyes to help firm and de-puff the eyes within just ten minutes. The Plumping Lip Gels apply straight onto the lips and after around ten minutes, you will have fuller, healthier looking lips. I think these are such a great idea because you get really quick results and as they only take ten minutes to use, you can do them on your break at work, or whilst you are in the shower. You can find Skyn Iceland online at M&S here.
Throughout the years, I have tried tonnes of different teeth whitening products, and they are often very messy and a bit of a nuisance to use. The White Glo Bright Nights Dissolving Whitening Films* (£4.99 for 6 strips) are such a fuss-free way to get brighter, whiter teeth. All you do is apply a strip onto the teeth, and it will then dissolved by your tooth enamel for an instantly whiter smile. So you don't have to sit there for an hour, or not be able to have a drink like with most teeth whitening strips. Because these work instantly and give instant results, you can use them at pretty much any time, anywhere. They are such a great idea for whitening the teeth. You can find them in-store and online at Superdrug here.
When it comes to dry shampoo, Batiste has had my heart ever since it was released here in the UK. However, the cans are quite big and so they don't make the best handbag essential. The Tints Of Nature Dry Shampoo* (£9.99 for 15g) is the perfect desk to dance floor product as it comes in a relatively small bottle and all you do is release the nozzle for precise application, and pump the unique, lightweight formula into the hair to immediately revive and refresh it. This 99.5% natural and organic dry shampoo gently absorbs excess oil and moisture from the hair without leaving behind that white, chalkiness some dry shampoos can do. You can find it online at Tints Of Nature here.
If you have received a last-minute party invite, and don't have the time to go get your nails done, then the KISS Gel Fantasy False Nails* (£7.99) are going to be a lifesaver for you. They are available at Boots and Superdrug so you can even nip into your local store and pick up a packet. They come in such a wide range of colours, textures, styles and more, so there is bound to be a design that matches your party outfit. The KISS Gel Fantasy Nails come with both adhesive tabs and nail glue, so if you prefer one to the other, it isn't a problem, and you will soon have party-perfect nails! You can find KISS Nails online at Boots here.
On to something completely unique, Eye Majic* is the world's first instant eyeshadow, which can give you professional eye makeup looks in just ten seconds! There are 24 different shades available, with both velvet matte and satin finishes, so there is definitely something for all skin tones and colour choices. They come in packs of 5 in one colour way (£5.99), or multi packs of four colourways (£19.99). All you do is take one left and one right pad out of the box and press onto the eyelid for around 4 seconds per eye, slide the pad across the eye and then remove for super quick eye makeup that will help you to look like you had it done professionally! You can find Eye Majic online at Instant Beauty here.
The Milani Shimmering Face Palette* (£25.50) is the perfect on-the-go palette as you can use the individual pans as blush, bronzer, highlighter and eyeshadows. Here I have the shade collection 01 Luminoso Glow, and it features some of the prettiest shades you can wish for, some with glitter, all with shimmer and glow. The formulas in this Milani Face Palette are silky smooth and soft, and I find that you can build them up too if you are wanting a super-all-out-glow, or apply them lightly for an effortless daily radiance. The Palette contains eight different shades, and there are other colourways available too, and with there being four products in just one palette, you can pop it in your handbag for any last minute invitations. You can find this online at Boots here.
Finally, for a touch of glitz and glamour, I love the LA Girl Holographic Gloss Toppers* (£5.00 for 10ml). There are five different shades available, and they can be worn alone or on top of other lip products to add shimmer and shine to the lips. They come in squeezy tubes with a slanted applicator so that you can apply them straight onto the lips, for on-the-go holo. The formula isn't sticky and each one contains colour-shifting holographic pigments that reflect the light for a multi-dimensional glossy finish. The formula also features Vitamin E, Aloe and Rosehip Seed Oil so that your lips not only look great, but feel it too, and are well nourished and soft. You can find them online at Beauty Bay here.
All the Loves,
