The fes­tive sea­son is on, with al­most ev­ery­one re­ceiv­ing party in­vites. While you want to put your best face for­ward, be­ing hard­pressed for time could leave you stressed out. The fact is that you don’t need a whole day or a visit to the beauty salon to turn heads at a party. All you need is a few smart makeup and styling tricks, your favourite fra­grance, your con­fi­dent smile, and you’ll be ready to rock any party in style! Here’s how to go from drab to fab with­out any sweat.

Master the art of con­tour­ing:

Con­tour­ing can give you a whole new sculpted face in just no time. It in­volves high­light­ing your best fea­tures and mak­ing them pop. If you’d like to do it the Kim Kar­dashian way, then con­tour­ing your cheeks and then giv­ing them a glow with a bronzer is a must. There are nu­mer­ous beauty tu­to­ri­als on YouTube that can make you a con­tour­ing pro within min­utes.

No fuss sham­poo: We all have days when it’s im­pos­si­ble to man­age those greasy locks and a head wash seems so dif­fi­cult. To quickly give a freshly washed look to your hair, use a dry sham­poo or baby pow­der. You can also add a shiny fin­ish to your hair by giv­ing it a quick rinse with green tea leaves boiled in wa­ter mixed with one lime juice.

Let the witch han­dle pim­ples:

If you have a party to at­tend and you have a sud­den party spoiler break­out, then here’s the fix: Just dab some witch hazel on a cot­ton ball and ap­ply it to the pim­ple for a few sec­onds to get rid of the red­ness and set­tle the swelling.

Ex­fo­li­ate and cleanse:

When you have no time to make a visit to the par­lour and pam­per your­self with a fa­cial, the best you can do is a quick home rem­edy. A mix of sugar and honey scrubbed for about five min­utes leaves you with baby soft skin.

Ban­ish tired eyes:

Your eyes can tell that you did not sleep or you are ex­hausted. Ap­ply con­cealer to your eye­lids and un­der­eye to hide dark cir­cles. Set them with a translu­cent pow­der. Line the rim of your lower eyelid with a white eye pen­cil. Fin­ish with a coat of mas­cara and you’re done.

Lus­cious red:

A red lip­stick is the fastest way to go glam. Red lips are a great way to trans­form the most ba­sic dress into some­thing gor­geous. So, be bold and go red!

Make waves:

Get soft, fun waves at home by braid­ing your damp hair be­fore go­ing to bed. Open them in the morn­ing and fin­ger-comb.

Hide un­der­eye cir­cles with an orange or peach

coloured con­cealer
