TIPS ON ACHIEVING THAT PERFECT RED CARPET LOOK:

– Go minimal, classic or opt for maximum impact, identify and highlight that one gorgeous feature that’s sure to turn heads.

– Altering your outfit for utmost comfort is key. Go for multiple fittings, simply opt for a uniform that fits like second skin.

– Decide between wearing your undergarments or going complete sans- avoid lingerie lines. Invest in a pair of seamless spanx or some double sided tape!

– Dress for your body type- wear the right silhouette and select appropriate lengths. More petite frames, try midi length dresses- they’d work like real wonders!

– Work out those legs, shoulders and arms at the gym. Add a few minutes of HIIT (high-intensity interval training) to your workout everyday! Use a bit of baby oil mixed with equal parts liquid bronzer for smooth and toned legs and shoulders.

– Hydrate your skin for that red carpet glow. A great mascara makes all the difference!

– Pay your hair-stylist a visit and get a gorgeous cut, preferably about two weeks prior. Refresh your highlights with a cold or warm wash to match your complexion!

– Keep the accessories minimal or opt for no jewellery. Don’t forget to close the look with a killer pair of heels!

STYLE CRACKER HACK: Remove all the puffiness by dipping your face in a vessel full of ice before patting on that make-up!
