3 Tips To Ensure You'll Look Flawless at Holiday Parties

I've often been asked why my Facebook photos are private.  My answer, "Why aren't yours?" The fact that we can be tagged in unapproved mobile uploads is not OK with me!  Obvi we want to put our best selves out there, so if we can help it (unlike the Kardashian's), why not? According to a Dove Deodorant Survey, six out of 10 women will be wearing something sleeveless to holiday parties, which means beauty's going beyond the blush brush.  Here are some tips on how to be photo ready at your holiday parties so you can wear that LBD with confidence and not worry about dreaded uploads. Tip 1: Exfoliate

Since your skin is drier in the winter you tend to use heavier creams and lotions to compensate, which can also build up leaving two reasons to exfoliate.  Exfoliate once or twice a week to keep it fresh.  Choose a gentle exfoliator with rounded beads so they don't scratch your skin and remember less is more.  I'm currently using Diptyque Exfoliating Body Cream, which is super luxe!  Follow up with a smooth shave and self tan.

Tip 2: Check your underarms

Let's be honest, it's crucial to tend to your underarms or you'll be in for some hairy situations. Exfoliate them too and use a deodorant that keeps you dry and moisturizes like Dove go sleeveless Soothing Chamomile Deodorant, $3.99 at Walgreens.  Dove go sleeveless gives you softer, smoother underarms in just 5 days with the help of Vitamins E and F.  It also gives you 48 hours of protection.  Check out their FB page for more info.

Tip 3: Highlight your best assets

Brush a little bronzer or shimmer on your decalotage and down the front of your shins.  This is always my finishing touch before heading out in a little dress.  Try Guerlain Terracotta Bronzing Powder, $50 at Sephora.
