Desk To Dancefloor: 6 Products You Need

desk to dancefloor

With post-work drinks becoming more of a regular occurrence throughout December, nailing our desk to dancefloor look becomes more of a seasonal sport in the office. With just a limited amount of time to transform yourself, you’ll need multi-tasking products that work hard and party harder.

Here are our favourite foolproof products to quickly transport you from desk to dancefloor.

Huda Beauty

Huda Beauty Matte & Metal Melted Shadows, £22 

With just 15-20 minutes spare to transform your eyes, there’s no point pulling out your 30-shade party palette in an attempt to pull off a last-minute cut-crease (we’ve all been there before). Liquid eyeshadow is the quickest way to liven up your look without the dreaded fall-out powder formulas bring. Using just your fingers, smudge the matte shade onto bare lids (or over any existing shadow) and blend out. Then dab a little of the shimmer formula onto the centre of the lids to instantly make eyes pop in no time.

Diorific Happy 2020 Glitter Nail Varnish, £22.50 

If you’ve not had time to book yourself in for a festive mani (or just want to jazz up your nude gel colour), keep a glitter nail polish on hand for any last-minute touch-ups. And what screams ‘Christmas’ more than this Dior Happy 2020 Nail Varnish? We glitterally can not deal. Note: probably best to do this step ahead of the taxi arriving.

Revolution PRO

Revolution PRO All That Glistens Hydrating Lipgloss, £5

There may be a recurring theme here, but this is the only time of year wear more is more when it comes to glitter – so make the most of it. The Revolution PRO All That Glistens Lipgloss in ‘Suede’ is the perfect sheer-nude that looks amazing on all skin tones. Wear on its own if your eyes do all the talking, or layer over your favourite lipstick to add some oomph.

Mario Badescu

Mario Badescu Facial Spray, £5.60

After a long day in the office wearing a full face of makeup with the heating on blast, skin is left feeling dry and foundation looking a little cakey. Rather than starting all over with your makeup, keep a facial spray to hand on your desk to refresh and revive. Tip: use your facial spray to hydrate your beautyblender without having to trek to the nearest sink. *and* set your look for a night on the town.


OUAI hair and body mist

OUAI Hair & Body Shine Mist, £25

Ready for your after-work glow-up? OUAI’s Hair & Body Shine Mist is the desk to dancefloor essential you never knew you needed. Infused with party-worthy diamond dust, this weightless finishing mist drapes light-scattering shine across hair and skin for a mirror-shine, dewy glow. Plus, it also hydrates and tames frizz with nutrient-rich amaranth oil and squalene, ideal for sorting out that post-work frizz.

Zoella Fruits Rollerball Perfume, £7.20

An essential because let’s face it, no one is fitting their full-sized bottle of Gucci into their tiny micro bag. After a day of back-to-back meetings and frantically running around the office trying to get your to-do-list checked off before 5pm (so you can spend some quality time with your BFF, Prosecco) you’re not likely to be feeling your freshest. Always keep a small rollerball perfume handy. We love these Zoella Rollerballs for all the fruity feels. Layer up to create your own unique scent.
