HOW TO GET READY FOR AN EVENING EVENT

Posted in Style on January 20, 2015 by


Going out to An Important Evening Event is akin to going to battle.

Preparation is key. Once on the ground – or in your bathroom – you need the the right strategy and sometimes, the right personnel.

For some, getting ready to go out can be tricky and takes a lot of time (which you don’t always have). And, there’s no denying that at some point – we’ve all been there – there are those complete meltdown moments because your hair just won’t work or you simply have nothing to wear!

But with a little planning – and these helpful tips – you can minimise the fuss and enjoy the process.

ONE WEEK BEFORE

  • If your hair needs a colour touch-up, this is the time to do it. Don’t leave it ’til the last minute as colours tend to look more natural a couple of weeks after they are done. While you’re at the salon, spoil yourself with a deep conditioning treatment like a shu uemura Master Ceremony if your locks need it.

THREE NIGHTS BEFORE

  • Now is the time for hair removal – remember no pain, no gain!
  • Eyelash tinting is also a good idea so you don’t have to worry about panda eyes (especially if your important event is a wedding).
  • It’s also time to squeeze in a spray tan or at-home tanning session. Any later and your colour might not be the perfect shade of golden glow that you want. By doing it a few days before, it also allows for any error such as getting rid of accidental streaks or orange hands or toes.
  • Treat any sneaky new blemishes with tea tree oil or your own blemish blaster.

THE NIGHT BEFORE

  • OK, now is the time to get all of those pesky yet essential things out of the way:  shaving legs and armpits, shaping eyebrows and giving yourself a manicure or pedicure.
  • It’s also an idea to wash your hair the night before. This will ensure your hair as a little grit by the following evening, making it easier to style.
  • And lastly, try to get some sleep. It’s your body’s best beauty remedy.

THE DAY OF

  • Woke up feeling a little tired? For a puffy eye fix, splash your face with cool water and apply a cold compress for ten minutes. This could be a cotton pad soaked in iced water or even a chilled cucumber slice. Our tip? Soak a cotton pad with 3–4 drops of SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, pop in the freezer for two minutes then apply onto eyes.
