Beauty Thursdays: Grab the girls for a primp and polish


Beauty Thursdays: Grab the girls for a primp and polish

Look, we all wish we could book a last-minute weekend away with the girls (and guys) at a pampering retreat, but it's not always on the cards.

Luckily for you, that pampering catch up you need with your friends is right in front of you. Enter: Westfield St Lukes on Thursday nights. It's time to grab your besties and head to your local Westfield for a feel-good night out.

First stop: Drinks on the go

Grab a smoothie from Tank, aim for one full of green veggies to really get that nutrient hit!

Second stop: Relaxation

How many times have you rushed past Fans Massage, Body Haven Massage or Golden Sail Massage and gazed longingly before quickly getting back to your shopping list? Well, not tonight! Head in and enjoy taking a bit of time out for yourselves.

Third stop: Nails

No pampering session is complete without a mani-pedi, and Nail Studio or ProfessioNail have you covered, no matter whether you're after a gel, SNS or traditional polish manicure. Make sure to ask if you can be seated with your pal so you can get maximum friend-time! It's good for the soul.

Fourth Stop: Eyebrows

Oprah famously said that getting your eyebrows done correctly can be more effective than a facelift. We tend to agree. Whether you go for a natural look, or you're all about the wow factor, Bindu's Brows + Beauty, Sisters Beauty or Beauty Club has you covered!

Fifth stop: Makeup

Chat to the makeup artists at Farmers or Life Pharmacy to find your favourite new lipstick, blush or eyeshadow shades. It never hurts to get some expert opinions!

Sixth stop: Hair

There's nothing like a sneaky trim and blow-out to make you feel amazing. Make a booking or see if there's a walk-in appointment available at Just Cuts or Kess Hair and Beauty. Because is there any better feeling than freshly styled hair?

Now you're ready to head out for a late dinner. We recommend Portuguese at Nandos, followed by a Chocolate Sundae at The Coffee Club. You're worth it.
