With all the cooking and baking and planning out your Black Friday shopping sprees, nobody has extra time to worry about beauty right now, am I right?! Most of us mom will be lucky if we even get our mascara on by the time guests start arriving tomorrow. That’s why we’ve got 3 beauty shortcuts you can do today to help you look your best tomorrow!
1. Take A Shower Tonight
Don’t waste time tomorrow taking a shower, take one tonight! Grab your phone, put some Christmas music on and hop in the shower! Wash and rinse your hair, put the conditioner in it, then take your time to lather up with a holiday-scented shower gel like Softsoap Limited Edition Frosted Wish Moisturizing Body Wash. Rinse your whole body off, rinse the conditioner out of your hair, and then take a few extra seconds to scrub your face with St. Ives Apricot Facial Scrub. Turn the water off, but STOP! Don’t grab your towel just yet! Give your skin a little holiday cheer before you even think about stepping out of the shower! Grab your bottle of Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer! Let the breakthrough water-activated formula instantly sink into your wet skin to give your skin soothing, long-term moisture that will last until your next shower. Unlike all other topical moisturizers, only Curel Hydra Therapy starts working in the shower, letting you completely skip a step in your normal showering routine. Just slather it on like lotion, towel dry your skin, get dressed and go!
2. Do Your Nails Tonight
It only makes sense to do your nails tonight, because we all know that if you wait until tomorrow, it will never happen. If you have 20-30 minutes free tonight, grab your gel nail polish, your UV lamp and go hide in the bathroom with a glass of wine while you do your nails. (It’s ok, we won’t tell!) Right now, I’m wearing Bio Seaweed UNITY Gel Polish in Eggplant.
If you only have 15 free minutes tonight, grab a bottle of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish. It lasts almost as long as a gel manicure, but takes half the time to put it on! Grab a bottle of Game of Chromes at Target when you are picking up those last minute items you need for tomorrow.
If you have lots of free time this evening, well… then I’m totally jealous, first off. Secondly, you might as well go ahead and do Jamberry Nail Stickers on your accent nails with your gel manicure or your regular nail polish manicure.
3. Fix Your Hair Tonight
Yeah, you heard us right! You can do your hair tonight and have it still look good tomorrow. No, really! You’ll just have to trust me on this and honestly, worst case scenario, you throw your hair in a messy bun if it doesn’t work out. That’s probably what you would end up doing anyway if you’re a busy mom like me!
For Curly Hair
Very lightly towel dry your hair and apply L’Oreal Air Dry It hair styling products. For tousled body, use the Ruffled Body Mousse. For beachy waves, use the Wave Swept Spray. For a casual, piecey look, use the Undone Style Cream.
For Straight Hair
After washing your hair, let it air dry while you are taking care of last minute details. Before you go to bed, use a ceramic straightening brush like this one from Vanity Planet. It takes half the time to straighten your hair than a regular flat iron, plus you end up with hair that looks like it’s naturally straight rather than having your hair look like you laid down on your ironing board. I absolutely LOVE my Vanity Planet Ceramic Straightening Brush! It’s so easy to use and it makes my hair soft and silky for days. If you don’t already own a ceramic straightening brush, Black Friday is a great time to buy one! It’s normally $79.99, but with Vanity Planet’s Early Access Black Friday Sale, you can get it for just $39.99!
To keep your hair from getting messed up while you sleep, get The Slap (satin-lined cap)!
Good luck getting ready tonight and Happy Thanksgiving!
