HQhair’s Top 10 Beauty Party Prep Essentials

    Mio Skincare Double Buff Dual Action Enzyme Exfoliator (150ml)

    At this point in the year, it’s usually been a while since our last holiday, so we always like to fake tan a couple of days ahead of a big night out or a party. Everyone knows that if you’re going to use fake tan, then you have got to exfoliate beforehand. If not, your tan could be left looking a bit blotchy and patchy – which is not a good look! However, sometimes exfoliators can contain harsh grains which may, in fact, damage your skin. That’s why we love Mio Skincare‘s Double Buff Dual Action Enzyme Exfoliator. The ingredients in this product are so kind and gentle on the skin that you can use this exfoliator on your face! For the best results, massage onto dry skin before showering off. This will leave you with a new layer of super soft skin, prepped and ready for a fresh application of tan.

    bliss Fabulips Treatment Kit - 4 Products (Worth £52)

    When it comes to parties, we usually opt for a liquid lipstick to make sure that our lippy stays in place all night long! However, because of the longevity of their formulas, liquid lipsticks can sometimes be a little drying on your lips… That’s why a smooth and flake-free canvas is key! We love the bliss’ Fabulips Treatment Kit, which is pretty much a facial for your lips. This kit includes a one-of-a-kind foaming lip cleanser, a sugar lip scrub, a volumising instant lip plumper and a softening lip balm. What’s more, this uh-mazing kit is actually worth £52, but you can get it right here on HQhair for only £39.50. Yep, that’s right, a £13 saving – result!

I’ve obsessed over all things beauty for as long as I can remember! Since my early teens, I’ve constantly experimented with my makeup, hair and nails. Nowadays, I usually settle for a statement eye and a soft, nude lip. I also love social media, so if you see a tweet or a post by HQhair, then I’ll most probably be the face behind it! If I’m not playing around with the latest beauty product or checking out what’s happening over on Twitter, then I’ll be on a city break with my friends, sipping on a Blue Lagoon.
