We have finally made it to part 3 of my NYC Gala series. (To catch up or refresh, click here for part 1 and here for part 2.) Today I am going to share with you what I did to prep my skin in the 24 hours leading up to the event.
The night before a big event, my go-to mask is the GlamGlow GRAVITYMUD Firming Treatment. This mask is not only efficient in firming and plumping the skin, but is very satisfying to apply, wear, and peel off. Added bonus: you get to look like the Tin Man for 20-30 minutes!
Before drinking a big glass of water and going to sleep early, I apply Luna and Good Genes generously to my face and neck (also the backs of my hands…keeping my hands looking youthful). This ensures a plump and refreshed face when I wake up in the morning. The best kind of beauty sleep.
Before I start on my face, I like to first eat my breakfast. Breakfast for me includes a bagel with cream cheese, emergen-C (this being my favorite), and coffee. #duh
Once I’m finished, now the fun begins. I wash my face with Clinique Pep Start 2-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser then it’s time for yet another mask! I chose this avocado sheet mask and it was perfect. Very nourishing and brightening…big thumbs up. After taking the sheet off, I wanted to let the ingredients set in for a while, so I went about my day doing this and that for a couple of hours letting the mask continue to do it’s magic. 30 minutes before I needed to start doing my makeup for the evening, I lightly rinsed any excess from the mask off of my face and applied a generous amount of this moisturizer to my face and neck as well as a couple pumps of this luxurious Dior Dream Skin. I finish off by tapping a bit of this eye cream around my eyes.
Taking these steps ensures that my face will be glowing and fresh for the entire evening. I enjoy going the distance with my skincare so I am able to rest assure that my skin looks the way I want it to and can feel confident when talking to lots of people.
Hope you’ve enjoyed getting ready for this event with me!
