Hi, my name is Alicia, and I’m your friend that’s always running late rushing all over the place. Whoops

Sometimes I might have back-to-back meetings and need to prep for an event in a hurry, and sometimes I lose track of time in the afternoon. Whatever the case may be, I’ve had a lot of “oh crap” moments where I need to get ready for a big night out in a very short amount of time. 

Here’s how I freshen up for a big night out in only 30 minutes!

Do an Express Teeth Whitening with ARC  Blue Light Teeth Whitening Strips

Let’s face it: if I’m going to a big event, I’m going to want to snap some photos. I am a blogger, after all! In the age of social media, it’s super easy to stay connected and share images from your special event with your friends/family/followers.

Admittedly, I drink a lot of coffee and red wine — which is not so ideal for my teeth! Yellow teeth will never be in style, and I always try to be camera ready for big nights out. I like to do teeth whitening treatments regularly before heading to bed, however, if I know I’m headed somewhere special and my teeth need a little TLC, I’ll do a quick whitening with blue light teeth whitening strips while I’m getting ready.

I used the brand new ARC White Strips & Blue Light last week before getting ready for a media event, and I loved how quick and easy the process was. You only need to put the white strips on for 30 minutes, and it includes a blue light for you to use to achieve professional-level whitening results. During the last five minutes of the treatment, you’ll place the blue light device on your teeth. I think this extra step is what sets ARC Blue Light Teeth Whitening apart from the rest!

The white strips stay in place, so I was able to multitask and get ready with ease during the treatment. ARC uses the same enamel-safe whitening ingredient that dentists use, and it’s completely safe and easy to use! I have a few big shoots coming up over the next few weeks, and I plan to use these blue light teeth whitening strips religiously to get back my pearly whites.

Curl The Front Sections of your Hair Only

I learned this trick from a friend: but if I’m working on Day 2+ hair and already have a bit of wave in my hair, I’ll add a bit of dry shampoo and touch up the front sections of my hair rather than curling my entire head. It saves a ton of time, and it will help you achieve a cool-girl, messy wave. Brush the fresh curls out with a wide-tooth comb after you’re done to for that perfectly undone look!

Take Your Outfit from Day to Night

If I’m really short on time, sometimes I won’t have time to change my outfit completely. One easy way for me to take my look from day to night is to add some bold accessories. I’ve worn this jumpsuit for day with a big straw hat, and I like to add some statement earrings for a night out on the town. I’ll also trade out my flats for heels, and swap the tote bag for a sleek clutch!

The Five-Minute Makeup Touch Up

My makeup during the day is always pretty low-key, so I like to jazz it up during the evening. If I’m pressed for time, I’ll add some powder to reduce shine and add a bold lip to take things to the next level. If I’m going to an extra special event, I’ll add some false lashes as well! It’s a quick and easy way to take your makeup from day to night.
