Hot date planned, but no time to go home after work? Relax! We’re here to help a sister out with our super quick desk-to-date plan. Master these short-cuts and you’ll be feeling like sex on toast in less than five minutes. XOXO
Step 1 – Slip on some heels
Even if you don’t have time to change your outfit, popping on a pair of killer heels will instantly make you stand taller and walk with a sexy swagger. Keep a pair under your desk AT ALL TIMES. Hot tip: Nude heels are universally flattering, and give the illusion of endless pins.
Step 2 – Freshen up with some perfume
Rather than lugging your favourite bottle of fragrance in your handbag (hello, spill alert!), buy a second bottle to stash in your desk. Or keep a handful of mini samples you can choose from depending on your mood.
Spray some scent on your pulse points – your body heat will activate the perfume and get him hot under the collar. And remember to spritz a little in your hair, too, for when he’s whispering sweet nothings.
Step 3 – Mop up oil
If you’re like me, your skin probably resembles an oil spill come 5pm. Which is why blotting paper was invented. NYX has a good budget option, or if you’re desperate, tissue paper or toilet seat covers make a good stand in.
Step 4 – Create a fool-proof smokey eye
I can see you looking at me like ‘Smokey eye in a few minutes? Girl, you crazy!’ Which would be true, if it weren’t for Eye Majic Instant Eye Shadow. That’s right: instant eye shadow. These genius makeup wipes come embedded with three complementary eye shadow shades – all you have to do is apply the pad to your lid, hold for around four seconds, then slide the applicator across the lid. And voila – profesh looking eye makeup in literally zero time!
For a softer look, you can easily blend with the reverse side of the wipe or a brush.
Step 5 – Brighten your smile
Hopefully your date’s going to dazzle you with his GSOH, and when he does you’ll want to flash that smile with confidence! So make sure you keep a Pop Smile Teeth Whitening Pen on your person. Conveniently purse-sized, with a 99% natural, peroxide-free formula, this little beauty’s made for on-the-go brightening touch ups.
And when you’re picking lippie? Go for a hue with a blue base for the illusion of whiter teeth. You’re welcome.
Step 6 – Get your blush on
There is something just so gorgeously girly about pretty flushed cheeks. A touch of blush, applied to the apples with a fluffy brush, takes about six seconds and instantly refreshes your look. Plus, it’s the perfect camouflage for when you DO actually blush.
