If you are rushing from work to a holiday party and you don’t have much time to glam up, here are some tips that will help you to sparkle in no time!

1. Brighten up your eyes after a long day at work with some sparkling white eyeshadow. Add some to the inner corner of your eyes and a light dusting over your eyelid and the attention will drift from tired under eyes. Curl the lashes and add a coat of mascara to finish the look. Eyes will look brighter and will glow!

Time taken – 3 minutes.

2. Hands are a good indication of how well you look after yourself, and are, believe it or not, the second place people look after your face. If you don’t have time for a full manicure, make sure that you properly remove all old polish which can look tacky. Get rid of any dirt from under your nails, cut and file them all to be the same length, moisturize hands well, and most importantly, BUFF. Use a 3 sided buffer for instant shine and get nails like new.

Time taken – 5 minutes.

3. Create a statement with a bold red lipstick. Exfoliate your lips first with an old toothbrush, moisturize with a good balm (I recommend Burt Bee’s), then line the lips with a red pencil. Do this gently and subtly. Finish off with a striking red lipstic, smack your lips together and you’re all set.

Time taken – 3 minutes.

4. No time to wash and blow dry your hair? Work the messy-on-purpose look. For a holiday up-do, forget your hair brush. Grab your hair with your hands and then pull back into a high ponytail. Wrap the ponytail around the elastic and secure with another elastic, or hair grips. Pull out strands of hair around your face and ears and finish with a hair accessory – headband, hair clip or fascinator. If going for your hair down, create texture by flipping hair upside down and using hair spray to create volume and texture.

Time taken- 5 minutes.

5. Finally, don’t underestimate the power of a gorgeous eye-catching piece of jewelry.  Whether it is a pair of light-catching earrings, a necklace or a gorgeous bangle, you can liven up any outfit in no time.

Time taken – 2 minutes.
