Staying Pretty When You're Busy

My friends will jokingly call me "Busy Izzy" because I'm constantly running around. Sometimes one party or event just isn't enough for one night. I like to be on the move but I can only stay busy with my beauty survival kit, which contains the essentials needed for any girl who wants to look good while keeping a busy schedule.

My number one staple for looking good while in the middle of a packed itinerary is a strong lipstick. I love a matte red lipstick with slightly blue tones as it sets the scene and makes everyone take notice when you enter the room. Plus, the blue tones make your teeth look whiter!

My other tips for how to stay pretty while busy are to select a "statement" dress that you are comfortable in. Go with your instinct, influences and your heart and rock the dance floor (or the office) in a frock that is totally you. Another key element for looking pretty on the go is the pair of shoes. I love a great shoe. A busy girl will always wear out her heels so make sure you get them re-heeled regularly so that you are ready to rock when it's time to party.

To achieve instant glamour, try a beehive hair-do. It's perfect for the busy girl, looks stylish yet effortless and propels you into instant retro icon mode. If I am ever in a rush but want to look the part, I channel my inner Adele and go for the beehive. 

My final tip is to get plenty of sleep. Rest is a key part of a beauty regime and plenty of sleep makes your skin glow and gives your body natural staying power. 

With GRAMMY season fully underway, rest up because it's sure to be a busy but glamorous season!
