I’m sure we are all super excited about the upcoming New Year celebration. I mean who doesn’t love presents, great food and lots of champagne? Everyone is all dressed up and gorgeous looking, so it is logical to want to look your best. Here are 3 easy steps, that guarantee to have you in goddess mode in time.
Step 1 – Upgrade your beauty ritual
If you start doing face masks 3 times a week, stop forgetting your moisturizer and massaging your face while applying it, I guarantee you , that by the 30th your face will have a glow, no highlighter can give. And if you are on a budget – check out these DIY face mask recipes that I swear by.
Step 2 – Fit into that dress
Ok, let’s be realistic. You can’t lose a lot of weight in a month’s time without harming your body or going through surgery. However, you can easily lose a few kgs and tone up your body to make it look completely different. All you need is to simply follow a few eating rules, add 20 minutes of exercise to your daily routine ( check out my top 5 at home workout routines) , and introduce your body to scrubs and vacuum massage (learn how to do it here) . All these things can be done at home, and don’t need you to have millions on your bank account. For recipe ideas check out my Healthy recipe section.
Step 3 – Feel confident
Sometimes all we need to look good is to simply feel confident about ourselves. Don’t go for a dress that is too tight, even if it is new and sexy. Go for the one that you feel more comfortable in, even if it’s old, and just accessorize it to give it a new look. Don’t wear heels that you can barely stand in, and choose those that allow you to run a marathon in. Wear sexy underwear that you like, for you, and not because someone will see them. If you feel sexy, you will look sexy, all you need to do is believe it.

I think I have found my second favourite summer eye product! My first still has to be the NYX Lingerie eye tint I talked about last week. But this Essence jumbo pencil really deserves the second place!
It is a quick, easy and awesome way to nail the budge prove look.
When people talk about MAC highlighters, the one that usually gets all the hype is OH, Darling. And without doubt it really is a beautiful “in your face” highlighter. However, my favourite one is still the Beaming Blush.
It is a much more subtle highlight, that gives your skin that inner halo glow effect, that looks absolutely stunning.
These shadows are probably the prettiest shadows I have seen recently. They grabbed my attention at the store, and once I started swatching them, I was hooked. That’s why I ended up with 5 different colors.
They are soft, almost cream like, and extremely pigmented! There is also very little fallout, which is amazing for shimmery shades.
