Everyday life, whether you work full-time, part-time, or are a stay at home parent, can leave you feeling like you need a spa day to get away from it all. We all want to treat ourselves and make sure our homes are looking stylish so why not add a touch of glitz and glamour to your daily routine?
Here are some top tips to give your house a touch of Hollywood!
The dressing table is often the part of your bedroom which is all yours. The place where you keep all of your makeup, perfume and where you style your hair. If your dressing table is looking a little tired or needs updating, why not treat yourself to a brand new, stylish setup? If you have a budget for this, take a look on Pinterest or browse your favourite furniture shops for inspiration until you find the perfect one. If you don’t have a huge budget, check out online auction sites or charity shops for a bargain. You might find a gorgeous antique design or a project. There are plenty of upcycling tutorials to be found and you can create something unique to your home.
Once you have the perfect dressing table, next it's time to add a glitzy mirror. Think of celebrity dressing rooms and the old Hollywood glamour of an illuminated mirror. If you’re handy, you can mount a mirror onto your wall and fix in lights surrounding it but there are plenty of affordable options for a ready made one. Not only so these mirrors look expensive but they will add essential light to make sure you are always looking your best.
If your mascara is looking a little dried out and your foundation is getting a bit tired, then perhaps it’s time to splash out on some luxury cosmetics. High-end beauty brands will often allow you to have a mini makeover with their products so you can try before you buy and see which products suit you. Do your research before you buy and make sure you are getting the most for your money. With any of the most popular brands, you’ll find plenty of online reviews to help you in your decision.
Now your dressing table is perfectly in place, your new mirror is twinkling away on the wall and you are stocked up on beauty products - it's time to accessorise the area. Pick up some of your favourite candles to add to the atmosphere and browse online for some practical and pretty storage for your new products. Adding some small boxes or drawers to keep your cosmetics in will make sure it’s not looking too busy and cluttered.
