5 ways to look more polished
Since we’re beauty-obsessed, I’m sure many of us put in the effort to look nice every day. But with busy lifestyles, it can be easy to let a few things fall by the wayside. So for those special occasions, important meetings or date nights, here are five easy ways you can step up your routine to look instantly more polished.
#1 Groomed brows
Your brows frame your face, so it’s fairly obvious when they’re unruly or unkempt. If you must pluck, only tend to underneath the brow and leave the rest to the professionals. Sometimes, you can get away with just smoothing your brows down with a spoolie or filling in sparse areas with pencil or powder.
#2 White, stain-free smile
A bright, white smile can make a world of difference to not only your look, but your confidence. The good news is that it’s not that hard to achieve. In fact, it’s as simple as upgrading your old stock-standard oral care routine to the Oral-B 3D White LUXE range. In addition to the Oral-B 3D White LUXE toothpaste, toothbrush and rinse, the range includes the Oral-B 3D White Whitestrips – which are such a convenient way to whiten your teeth. All you have to do is pop them on for 30 minutes, twice a day. The strips conform to your teeth so you can continue writing that work document, cooking dinner or painting your nails while they work to whiten your teeth and remove stains. You’ll begin to see results in just five days, so be sure to start using them the week before your event.

#3 Manicured nails
Nothing lets down an otherwise flawless look quite like a chipped mani, so if you really want to impress, pay a little attention to your digits. Completely remove any leftover polish, then give your nails a good buff and file. Finish off with a few coats of your fave coloured polish (we love a classy nude like COVERGIRL Outlast Nail Gloss in Always Naked) and make sure you wait until they’re COMPLETELY dry before doing anything - unless, of course, you’re fine with smudging your handiwork.
#4 Frizz-free hair
There’s nothing better than freshly washed hair, but that soft, clean feeling can also trigger frizz and static. To prevent this from happening, apply a small amount of hair serum through wet hair. Then, once your locks are dry and styled, tame flyaways with the help of Herbal Essences Supersize Set Me Up Hairspray and clean spoolie brush.
#5 Smooth skin
Make-up looks most polished when it’s applied to a smooth, well-prepped canvas. If you have dry skin, be sure to apply a hydrating day cream before your base. Or for oily skin, try a mattifying primer. For an even smoother, glowing complexion, you can also treat your skin to a face mask the night before.
