This gorgeous weather has us all dying to do some outdoor entertaining. So when we do invite some friends over for a dinner date or throw a summertime BBQ, we might not know how to get ready in a pinch! Who wants to worry about uptight hairdos or layers of makeup while you’re running around, making sure everyone is taken care of and enjoying themselves.
BeautyStat had the chance to sit down with the lovely Lo Bosworth, reality show alumni (any Laguna Beach and The Hills fans out there?), entrepreneur (she currently runs her own lifestyle site, The Lo Down) and a student at the NYC Culinary Institute — she’s basically a one-woman dynamo!
So, in between running to class, peddling her little heart out at SoulCycle and updating her YouTube channel, Lo actually throws dinner parties for friends all the time! And what she loves most is decorating her table with simple flower arrangements. If you ever wanted to try your hand at some inexpensive flower arranging, take a look at some of Lo’s simple tips:
1. When arranging flowers, it’s always best to use an odd number (like 3).
2. Cut flowers under water to make them last for a couple more days.
3. Drop a penny in a vase; the copper acts as an acidifier, which prevents the growth of bacteria.
4. Make sure not to put leaves in the water, just stems.
5. Use old mason jars for a quick and decorative vase.
We all got our hands on some gorgeous peony and rose arrangements, the exact ingredients found in the NEW! Tone Petal Soft Body Wash with Pink Peony and Rose Oil Extract. Roses are everywhere this season, and the delicate floral scents found in this body wash give you that instant floery treat anytime of day. Like, right before you throw a big party. Vitamin E and rose oil leave skin feeling soft with an irresistibly fresh scent that washes clean.
And after Lo hops out of the shower using her new fave body wash, she relies on a minimal, no-fuss makeup routine to get her party-ready. “I use a brush to apply my foundation and concealer, and I apply a little bit of toner onto the brush to give that dewy, photo-shopped finish effect,” explains Lo. No wonder she’s the DIY Queen!
While talking, we couldn’t help but stare at her lush lashes, which she thanks to COVERGIRL Lashblast Volume Mascara! For her, it’s all about clean skin she gets from Dermatologica skincare, lush lashes and a bright lip. Now Lo and you are ready to be the hostess with the mostess!
