The next review from my old site that I’d like to share with you is this short piece on last minute night out essentials from 2012, I’ll be doing an updated version of this later in the year ready for party season & I already know my essentials will be changing!

Here are my Top 5 Essentials for a last minute night out…
1. Annabelle’s Wigs Half Hairpiece (www.annabelleswigs.co.uk) ‘Marie’ – £29.99
This is my ultimate saviour! At the end of the day when you need glam hair in a hurry, or if you simply want to be lazy, the hairpieces from Annabelle’s will always save the day! I’ve only had mine for a few weeks, but it is by far the best quality synthetic hairpiece I have ever owned!
2. HD Brows Eye&Brow Palette (www.hd-brows.co.uk) ‘Foxy’ – £19.95
This fantastic palette from HD Brows should be in every girls make up bag! Create perfect brows and smokey eyes by using the four pressed powders in different combinations, it will even fit in your clutch and comes with a brush for touch ups on the go!
3. Millie Mackintosh for Nouveau Lashes (http://
Millie’s strip lashes are simply the best I’ve ever tried, they come complete with mini tweezers and adhesive and are made of natural hair for a more natural look. Millie’s range comes in 8 different styles, but my personal favourites are ‘Portobello’ for a flirtatious flutter and ‘Mayfair’ for a more chic look.
4. Barry M Glitter Nail Paint (www.barrym.com) ‘Rose Quartz’ – £2.99
From my post a few weeks ago you surely know that I am in love with this and I must admit I now own more than just the Rose Quartz pictured here! Drying in seconds, if you do get a last minute invite you can paint on a few quick layers to add a little sparkle to your look!
5. Fake Bake 60 Minute Self Tan Liquid (www.fakebake.co.uk) – £24.95
I don’t tend to fake tan too often as I hate sleeping in it over night while it develops, but not any more! This revolutionary 60 minute formula makes tanning a breeze and looks natural, thank you Fake Bake!
So there you have it, if you get a last minute invite this party season, you could be ready in just 90 minutes with these miracle workers in your armoury… However, picking an outfit is another story…
