How to Get Ready for a Party in Less than 10 Minutes


When I was 18, there was always a spontaneous party going on almost every day of the week (yes, even on school night. #sorrymomanddad). I'm pretty trained in getting ready in a very, very short amount of time and I'd even go as far as say as I master the art of getting ready in less than 10 minutes. So now that party season is on its way, I thought some of you wonderful readers might find my tips useful.

Makeup Routine

  1. I dust a bit of my powder foundation from BareMinerals on in the shade 'fairly light' N10.
  2. Then I move on to my eyebrows, I use my MAC brow gel and eyeshadow in 'concrete'.
  3. For my eyelashes I use the MAC Zoom Lash mascara which is honestly my favourite mascara of all time.
  4. I switch between MAC Russian Red, Rimmel London 107 and a liquid lipstick from NYX in the colour 'Cherry Skies' for my lips. If I don't have a lot of time, I'll go for the Rimmel lipstick as it's the easiest one to apply.
  5. For blusher I use SO MUCH of my MAC Desert Rose blush. That's my favourite makeup product. It's SO cute.
  6. To finish it all off, I use a little bit of my Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer highlighter or the NARS Albatross highlighter. I don't use any conturing as I have been pretty blessed in the bone structure department and it tends to look a little like dirt on my face.

Outfit Combination #1: Fancy Dress & High Heels

If you're going to a bit more of a fancy event then I'd say option 1 is pretty ideal. You basically just grab a statement dress in your closet and add a pair of black heels. Acne Studios makes really good statement dresses which doesn't look too over the top. All attention goes to your dress and you don't necessarily need to worry about matching accessories to your outfit.

Outfit Combination #2: the Little Black Dress

The second option is a simple, classic little black dress. Everything goes with a black dress and you can go in any direction you want in terms of accessorizing. I'm wearing a choker with my black slip dress in the photo above along with my sparkly, silver boots from Zara. As Karl Lagerfeld once said  "One is never overdressed or underdressed with a little black dress".

Outfit Combination #3: Oversized Tee & Statement Jacket

Last month, I wore my Haus of Piss t-shirt to a birthday party I was late for. Everybody was asking  me questions about my t-shirt so I guess wearing graphic merchandise t-shirts also works as a great conversation starter. Any oversized graphic t-shirt will do. Show everyone who's team you are on and what you're about by wearing your favourite merchandise as a dress and add a pair of boots and a nice jacket to it. Then you're all good to go!

...And that's it! I guess we can conclude that If I'm ever in a rush to go to a party, you'll never catch me wearing trousers. I hope you enjoyed this blog post even if it is a little bit all over the place.
