Tis’ the season. Let me tell you. With the holidays approaching I haven’t had a chance to breathe! Normally work events slow down a bit, but this year, it seems every brand wants to have new launch events and holiday parties this season and on top of it, I have so many parties with my friends and family! I haven’t been able to breathe since Thanksgiving! I’m sure you’re feeling quite the same way between shopping, entertaining and party hopping. Because of all of the madness I’ve had to cut the corners on my primping this year and do a lot of it myself. Thank God for good DIY products. Here’s what I’ve been doing, it can save you too!
L’Oréal Paris Root Rescue 10 Minute Root Coloring Kit , $7.99
I haven’t had a second to make a salon appointment during the week and they’ve been totally booked on Saturdays so this came to my rescue and it only takes ten minutes. Not only did it do the job matching my color but it was really easy to use for the every day girl (like me) because the applicator allows for precise control. The best part – it only takes ten minutes!
Lancome Flash Bronzer Body Gel, $33
Well it is December, but that’s no excuse for me to look absolutely see through! I can literally see the blue veins on my hands. No lie. So of course, once again it’s self tanner to the rescue! I’ve been using this Lancome body gel at night before the day of a party so I wake up glowy. It leaves a natural, subtle glow instead of a very tan look, which is perfect for this time of year.
Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Chrome Pen, $7.79
Of course I get mani’s regularly, but you’ll notice I always complain about them chipping within two days, so no – they don’t last me through the week. When I need a quick DIY fix this is my go-to. I love the Chrome color for the holidays because it mimics the minx mani and the best part – it dries in a flash!
