If you’ve got a special occasion coming up, then you’ll want to look and feel your very best. There are all kinds of things you can do to make this happen.

The sooner you start, the better you’ll feel about your special occasion – how about upping your water intake a few weeks in advance to detoxify your body and clear your skin? These tips and tricks will help you out too!

Include Texture And Interest In Your Look

Your look should have texture and interest to make people go ‘wow!’. Adding a couple of different textures to your outfit will make it look more interesting straight away. Metallic features are very popular this season with rose gold jewelry, silver thread through knits, metallic heels on shoes. Look for textured faux-leather handbags, special occasion shoes with fun features (like those designed by Sophie Webster), and luxe scarves.

Plan Your Look Around Your Outfit

When you know what you’re wearing, you can start to plan your look. What hairstyle will go best with what you’re wearing? Consider your neckline when you plan your hairstyle as this is important for the overall success of your look. Your jewelry must co-ordinate with your outfit, of course, but also your makeup. Don’t bedazzle with metallics in your jewelry AND your makeup. Pare back one or the other. A smoky look is always a winner, but don’t be afraid to get a little more experimental.

Wear A Designer Outfit For A Fraction Of The Price

You don’t need to spend a fortune on special occasion clothing to look your best. Looking at I am Finesse designer dress hire will help you to find something designer to wear for a fraction of the price. Renting an outfit might seem strange, but it means you can get a red carpet look on a budget. After all, even celebrities ‘borrow’ from designers, right?

Use YouTube For Hair And Makeup

So you don’t have any hair or makeup skills? It doesn’t matter. YouTube is like an open university for people who want to learn. There are so many tutorials, so all you need to do is set aside a little time to practice the techniques. Make sure you use makeup that suits your skin type, as well as apply eye makeup to suit your eye shape. Once you’ve done that, you can feel free to experiment!

Get A Healthy Glow

A healthy glow always looks amazing, so why not invest in a spray tan or self-tanner? ALWAYS wax and then exfoliate prior to using any tanning products. You can get a light tan to give you a subtle look, but you can always apply more than one coat if you want a deeper tan. Just make sure you use a hand mitt (very important to stop getting stained palms) and do it in front of the mirror to ensure you don’t miss bits!

Use Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal is the new buzz item for whitening teeth, but it really works. It gets messy, so prepare yourself – but using this for just once a day for 3 days can make a huge difference to your smile. It will help remove stains and give you a bright, beautiful smile!

Remember The Finer Details

The finer details of special occasion dressing are crucial too, such as your earrings and nails. An eye for detail will make all the difference, so don’t cut corners!
