Lazy to Glam: 5 Ingenious Fast Fashion and Beauty Fixes

Posted by Alexandra C. | Friday January 10, 201418 comments

I am in the unfortunate situation of being both incredibly lazy and loving beauty products. When I'm at home, or coming from the office, my usual look is subtle, natural and laid back. Hairs in a bun and clothes are mostly easy, throw on basics. However, there are occasions that need me to quickly take my lazy Alex look and bring it to fancy schmancy professional Alex. Interviews, meetings, dates, ladies nights: they all call for a little glam. 

When this happens, I have a few secret weapons to kick it up a notch: 

Mani in Minutes:

2., 4. Kiss Gel Fantasy Nail Kit in Painted Veil and Rock Candy (C$10.99 each, avail Feb 2014) 
1., 3. imPRESS Press On Glitter Manicure by Broadway Nails (C10.99 each, avail Feb 2014)  

I am obsessed with these fabulous fakes. I know fake nails seem really 90's, but these ones are awesome. They have cool designs and look natural. If I want to jazz it up in just a minute or two, I pop these on and my scraggly, bitten nails are suddenly cool and sophisticated. It literally takes minutes for a pro looking mani.  

Hot Heels:

1. Shoelery Boot Chains Spiked Chain (C$29.99)
2. Shoelery Spiked Heel Ring (C$19.99) 
3. Shoelery Shoe Clips Smiling Skull (C$24.99)

Say you're at work and you get a last minute invite to a party and all you've got on you is a basic black and a pair of boots. Instead of reaching for statement jewelry, reach for statement shoelery! Add one of these bad boys and voila- new pair of shoes! 

Look Cute in a Flash:


1. Demeter Fragrance Library in Laundromat (C$10.00): We all sweat. And though we wear deodorant and perfumes, towards the end of the day, we may not be our freshest. I love Demeter fragrances because they are single scents that don't overpower. I like to carry around one in a fresh, light scent like Laundromat. It's like shower cheating. 

 2. Stila Pretty Pick Me Ups (C$20.00): Blush and a lippie are two essentials. They give you a more polished, put together look and make you look more alert and refreshed. 
3. Venus Snap Embrace (C$15.99, avail Feb 2014): Okay, this may seem odd but the more I read about this travel sized, mini razor, the more I like it. Here's a scenario: you shower, put on your fave sleeveless dress, head to work and you get there only to realise - you forgot to nip those hairs out. Yikes. And you have plans for drinks later! Head to the washroom discretely and take care of business. 
What are some of your quick beautifiers to get you glammed up?
