Party Prep – From Work to Play

Party Prep – From Work to Play

According to study findings, we feel most happy at work when we also feel fulfilled in our free time, and vice versa. That’s why it’s important to find that balance, clog out after 6 pm and head to a date night or a party downtown! To transform your look from work to play, keep a couple of necessary products in your desk drawer, and prep the night or morning before to save time on the day. Follow our guide on how to achieve this effortless look.

The night before

The best way to ensure that you can swiftly jump from the office to a night out with friends is to prep the night before heading to work. An excellent nighttime skincare routine will help you go through the busy day with hydrated skin. Begin with a gentle wash using a facial cleansing device and use micellar water to eliminate all dead cells and thoroughly clean pores. Apply a cream moisturizer for maximum hydration and a firming anti-wrinkle serum to deter the forming of fine lines. Dark circles? No problem! For instant radiance and skin firmness, apply ice cubes with pearl extract and hyaluronic acid – 10 minutes is all you need to get that powerful boost!

Heading to the office Christmas party right after work? Bedazzle your colleagues with a new look – apply semi-permanent hair dye in a funky color, and you will be the star of the evening. When using a straightener or a hair curler, make sure to apply a heat protection spray to help preserve your semi-permanent color.

Speaking of hair, we know how annoying it is to that keep stubble at bay on underarms and legs. For a timesaving and long-term hair removal solution, save yourself some time from going to the salon and give yourself a home treatment instead. It is now super easy with IPL – Intense Pulse Light, which is incorporated in the latest hair removal technology. No need to bring the razor at work – you will be ready to go out any minute!

In the morning

For those of us who don’t wear makeup to work but still want to apply it when going out afterward, bring a makeup palette and some powder. However, a more complex activity is prepping your eyebrows. Well-groomed brows are the frame of your face, so give them some attention before going to work in the morning. Apply a waterproof gel followed by a powder eyeshadow in the same color to set the gel in place and avoid smudging.

The secret to the perfect work-to-party transformation? A busy working woman doesn’t have time to stop by her apartment before heading downtown, so it’s better to have a few secret weapons hidden in your purse or desk drawer.
