Sometimes, when the weekend is distant and the emails are overflowing, you need a bright beauty respite to boost your mood. Here are a few simple beauty tricks to help you ditch those mid-week blues (and feel great) in a matter of minutes.
When the stress of a long week is wearing you down, nothing feels better than a nice deep cleanse. Try applying your facemask in the shower, as the steam will open up your pores, allowing the mask to penetrate deeper and be more effective. Two of our current favorite masks are Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque and SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Masque.
Nothing boosts our spirits faster than an instant glow. Giorgio Armani released their brand new Summer 2013 Bronze All-Over Palette, and its perfect for instant sunshine. The palette boasts a gorgeous golden bronzer and three gold and peach based eye shadows, making it a one-stop mood-lifting tool. Add a swipe of the medium-tan bronzer, and contour your lids with the golden shadows and your coworkers might start asking you if just got back from vacation.
Science has proven that it’s harder to be grumpy when your eyelashes look amazing. For an extra boost, try warming your eyelash curler before using it. Just like heating your curling iron, a heated tool curls more effectively, resulting in longer-lasting results. Try running your eyelash curler under hot water, or give it a quick blast with your hairdryer.
