A big night can be incredible but sometimes parties can feel a little daunting, especially if you’re going on your own. We got talking to some of the lovely #LFAmbassadors to ask them their secrets for feeling confident and happy.
How to Feel Confident
It is amazing how the smallest changes can make a huge difference to how you feel. If you’re feeling a little anxious about heading out to a special occasion, why not try some of the tricks that work our ambassadors?
Prep your Skin
“I feel most confident heading to the party when my skin feels fresh and glowing. A lot of this can be down to pre-party prep
Be sure to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water on the day and the day before heading to the party and if you have time, it’s great to pamper your skin the night before with a face mask and go for a really hydrating night cream, like the Antipodes Avocado Pear Night Cream.
To add extra glow to your skin before applying makeup, I like to use the Pixi Glowtion Day Dew. That always leaves my skin looking glowing and gives me an extra boost of confidence!”
“Confidence isn’t about being arrogant but it’s about appreciating and loving yourself.
Before you go to the party, make sure you FEEL amazing. If you feel conscious about your outfit or your make up then no matter how much you try to fake it or hide it, it will still be evident.
Feeling comfortable and sexy will build your confidence!”
Trust your Own Judgement
“Make sure you 100% love what you look like.
Nothing is more beautiful than confidence! So if you love what you look like, that’s all that matters”
Focus on Your Favourite Feature
“Focus on a feature you are most confident about.
If it’s your eyes, go for a flattering false lash to accentuate them. If it’s your lips, use a pop of colour to draw attention to them.
I love a good gloss, makes me feel fresh and girly!
Take a Deep Breath
“If you are worried about talking to new people, get there early and you’ll find you will make friends fast as it will be much easier to talk to everyone.
If you are feeling nervous, take a time out and take a deep breath, count to 3 and then head back into the party, it really works!”
Plan Everything Out
“I think when you have a killer outfit and your make up looks the bomb, then you don’t need anything else.
I always have to have what I’m wearing go with my make up to feel 100% confident.”

Enjoy the Process
“I honestly believe that when I am confident that I look good, I feel so much more confident.
So don’t rush, take your time and enjoy getting ready, until you feel fabulous. Then, believe it.
Even if you have to pretend to be confident, walk in with your head held high and be the girl everyone wants to talk to!”
