Whether you’re hosting or heading out for a big night, getting ready for a party is usually the busiest and most time consuming part. To make sure it runs smoothly and you feel incredible, we’re sharing 5 of our foolproof favourite ways to help us get ready.
5 Things to do When you Get Ready
Prep your Skin
Get your skin ready for a party with a great hydrating primer. It will help soothe your skin, even your skin tone and hydrate, leaving a perfect base for makeup.
Look for moisturisers or primers containing Glycerin; this is the key ingredient for helping makeup last and locking hydration into the skin.

Set the Mood
If you’re hosting, give your home a quick bit of party prep by setting the mood.
Clear up any clutter, switch on some music and light a few scented candles. It’ll get everyone feeling relaxed and happy the moment they step through the door.

If you have your essentials covered, you can relax and have fun with another part of your look.
