I lead a far from glamorous life and so I use the term “evening glamour” very loosely! But, when a cocktail party or formal event is on the calendar, there are five easy necessities that I rely on to add a bit of polish to any outfit!
1. A Pedicure
Even in winter months it’s great to have a fresh pedicure so that open toe or strappy sandals are still an option. For an added touch of glitz (and since it’s only on your toes!) choose a polish with some sparkle like OPI’s silvery “Stars in My Eyes” or Deborah Lippman’s gold hued “Nefertiti.”2. Air Brush Spray for Legs
This product if used properly, is totally amazing! If you hate pulling on panty hose, Sally Hansen has created an airbrush spray that mimics the look of stockings while helping to cover veins, freckles and other imperfections. It only takes a few minutes to apply and lasts all night! Multiple shades are available so that you can match your own skin tone! I even keep a travel size version of this product in my toiletry kit!

3. Static Guard
Although this product may seem low on the “glamour scale,” it’s absolutely essential before heading out the door in a silky or satiny outfit. Don’t forget to also spray the lining of your coat!
4. Body Shaper
Also, not very exciting, but a good body shaper can smooth away bumps, eliminate visible panty lines and make your entire outfit look that much better! Body Wrap makes a full line of fantastic shapewear and Hane’s now offers the “Go Figure Waist Smoother” with support and coverage from the bra line to midthigh.
5. Cocktail Ring
Enjoy your next night out on the town and hopefully one or more of these ideas will become your favorite as well!
