Do you have a special occasion coming up? Maybe it’s a birthday, an anniversary or just a girls night out where you want to push the envelope a bit and look your best?
Here are some of the ways you can really glam up and feel gorgeous for your next event even if the temps remain low:
Find The Perfect Outfit
Regardless of your shape or size, the perfect outfit will make you feel fantastic.
Work out your body shape, and follow styling advice based on that if you’re unsure. If you get chance, spend a day leisurely browsing your favorite boutiques trying on lots of different pieces.
One tip is to choose one area to accentuate and then cover up everywhere else. For example, if you’re wearing a short dress that shows off your legs, go for something with sleeves or a higher neckline.
If you want to show off your shoulders, arms, and décolletage area then wear tights with your skirt or trousers. That way you get to show off your best bits but still, keep it classy.
Always Add Accessories
Accessories are a great way to glam up an outfit. If you’re going with a simple LBD, a statement necklace or some sparkly bracelets can really help to give it more of an evening look.
Don’t forget a bag too- a clutch to hold your phone, keys, money and makeup is essential. You don’t want to be lugging your big daytime bag around with you!
Get Creative With Your Makeup
Even if you don’t wear much makeup day to day or like to keep it quite natural looking, a special occasion is the perfect chance to glam up. Experiment with smokey eyes, or try a different lip color.
Contour and highlight your face which will make it look slimmer and more defined, perfect for photos! There are so many tutorials on Youtube you’ll be spoiled for choice
Do Something Special With Your Hair
If you usually wear your hair curly, how about going straight and sleek for your special event?
Begin by blow drying it as straight as possible then finish with good quality straighteners and a shine spray.
If your hair is usually straight, you could opt for glamorous curls. Different curling irons will give you different effects, for example, a large barrel will create more of a loose wave and a smaller barrel will create more of a corkscrew spiral.
You could check out curling iron reviews, and also watch some hair tutorials to work out which would be best for you. If you’re good with hair (or have a friend who is!) you could even try an intricate up-do.
Wear a Beautiful Perfume
A beautiful perfume will finish off the look and make you feel extra glam.
Maybe you have something that you save for special occasions, if so now is the perfect time to spritz it on. If not, why not treat yourself to a bottle?
Perfume isn’t something people buy for themselves often, but it makes a lovely luxury purchase and is something that will last for a long time.
