The Night Before a Special Event

It’s the night before a special event, what do you do?

The night before any special event can be just as important as my makeup application the day of.  So I wanted to share some of my favorite products and tips that I like to use before any special occasion.

Hair Masks
I love hair masks because waking up with smooth shiny hair makes it incredibly easy to style. It also gives me an option of just letting it down if I want. There are a ton of hair masks out there and at every price point. I happened to use a Phyto hair mask this time, but coconut oil or any hair mask will do the trick too.

I love me a good facemask! Currently I am using the Ren Radiance Renewal Mask, which smells like fresh apricots! I like using chemical exfoliating products because they make makeup application a real breeze. Not to mention that they make you skin glow and I mean come on ladies who doesn’t like that?

Body Care
Usually during more formal events I show more skin. Trust me I’m not the tramp at the ball, at least I hope not! But evening dresses usually do show more skin that my consistent outfits of knitted sweaters and black pants. So body care is critical for me, I really like to take the time to exfoliate and use products that leave my skin looking the best. New, to my collection is the Aveda Beautifying range. With the calming scents of lavender and bergamot this line up is the perfect unwinding kit.

Some important tips I want to leave you with are:

  •        If you’re anything like me you hoard around beauty products you love for “special days”. And when those very few “special days” come you don’t use the product you’ve been saving. So my tip is go ahead use those products!
  •        Use products that you know that work for your skin. Trying any experimental masks may leave into breakouts, hives, and reactions so steer away from experiments!
  • -      Do what works for you! If you have 3 hours and seaweed around and know how to do to a seaweed wrap… go for it sister! On the other hand if you have have time for a quick show use a luxurious shower gel.
  •        I can’t stress this enough, but a good nights sleep may be the best prep advice I can give. There’s nothing worse then looking then looking and feeling sluggish!

Well that concludes my post today hope you are all having an amazing weekend!
