Sometimes, getting ready for a party can be just as much fun as the event itself. It doesn’t matter whether you have a few minutes or a few hours to prepare, if you're going out and want the world to know, make sure you look your best for a big night out with these pre-party treats…
There’s nothing like a spa treatment to banish stress and put a smile on your face. The 60-minute Lush Spa Validation Facial is designed to help you relax so that you can look great and feel super-confident. If time is tight, some of the tracks from our Spa CDs are available for you to listen to for free, so tune in and take a few minutes to switch off from your busy day and get ready to have fun.
Get your glow back
Applying a fresh face mask like Mask of Magnaminty gives your skin that extra boost and allows you time to chill out before a big night out. Lie back, relax and let a combination of fresh, ingredients restore your radiance. If you’re going out straight after work, apply Feeling Younger skin tint instead. Although it’s not a treatment, it contains hydrating almond oil to revive your skin after a day at the office and offers a gorgeous glow. Try highlighting your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose or using all over for a subtle shimmer.
Add some sparkle
Dazzling, sparkling skin is the perfect way to accessorise your party outfit. So wash on some magical shimmer with uplifting, zesty Sunnyside bubble bar, which contains PET-free gold glimmer, lemon and sweet wild orange oils to lift your spirits. Follow with Karma Kream body lotion, which is packed with Fair Trade cocoa butter and orange oils to leave your skin bright and supple. For extra glitter, apply dazzling Shimmy Shimmy body tint which melts as you sweep it over the skin.
Get some colour
Winter weather and central heating can leave us all craving a little sun. If you want a subtle holiday glow, use Black Stockings solid body tint to give gorgeous, sunkissed colour to your skin. Simply stroke this Fair Trade organic cocoa and shea butter bar over bare skin and the blend of brown and bronze pigments will give you a golden glow. Smooth it over legs, and you won’t need to wear tights.
Tame your mane
A hair treatment will add shine while it conditions your hair — apply it the day before the party if you need to get ready in a hurry. Marilyn hair treatment brightens blonde hair, while Jasmine And Henna Fluff-Ease gives a glossy finish. To help define curls, scrunch a little R&B through your midlengths and ends, it moisturises and smooths flyaways, and it’s a great hair perfume too.
Brighten your eyes with a dab of Enchanted Eye Cream to firm and refresh the delicate skin around them. From foundation to lipstick, explore the entire makeup range to look and feel your absolute best. Whether you want a dazzling highlight or a bold eyeliner wing, Lush makeup will have you feeling fine all night long.
The finishing touch
Before you step out of the door, spritz yourself with your favourite scent. From sultry Lust: an intoxicatingly floral perfume which blends sensual jasmine and heady ylang ylang to Dirty: a fresh and exhilarating fragrance with spearmint, tarragon and thyme- a touch of fragrance is the perfect finishing touch to your outfit.
