Tips to Look for Best for that Big Event

look your best

Summer may be the time for kicking back and relaxing, but it’s also notorious for the time when one big event follows another. Whether it’s your wedding, graduation, or formal garden party – or someone else’s – there are a few things you can do to be big event ready in no time.

The underlying theme here is clean, clear and natural. If you’ve got this foundation going for you, getting ready for the big day will be smooth and efficient. In the days leading up to the event, be sure to eat a healthy diet and stay well hydrated. Get enough rest and steer clear of alcohol. Sugars, salt and alcohol can all cause bloating and make your skin more reactive – in other words, more likely to break out. You’ll also want to think about whitening your smile. For an at home option, whitening strips applied about one week before the day will give you a noticeably brighter smile.

If you still wake up with a blemish, hold an ice cube on it for about 30 seconds. It will help diminish any swelling. Then, put a few eye drops – the ones for red eyes work best – on a tissue and dab the zit. It should help reduce the redness. Then apply your moisturizer and make up as usual. Easy done.

Nothing draws attention like a great smile. You’ve already got brilliant white teeth, so now you need a great lip color. Exfoliate your lips with a mixture of honey and salt followed by a light brush over them with your toothbrush using a circular motion. Add a light coat of moisturizer followed by that great color you’ve chosen. It should stay put all through the event.
