  1. Use a white liner to draw the cat’s eye out and up. Then just follow with gel eyeliner–perfection!
    For graceful nails, choose a beige to echo your skin tone for the base color and Revon’s Pure Pearl for a soft French manicure

    I always wash my hair the day before the big event, not the day of. Something about next day hair makes the style come out better.

    drink plenty of water and get a good nights sleep the night before—then before you put your makeup on put your face in a bowel of ice water and hold it in as long as you can stand it. Then pat dry–your skin will look amazing.

  4. I will thread unwanted facial hairs the night before to avoid red, irritated skin on the big day so that makeup application goes on smoothly.

  5. when applying lipstick (esp red!) always make sure to stick your finger in your mouth and pull. this will prevent you from getting lipstick on your teeth!

    NOTHING ruins a red carpet moment more than lipstick-teeth… except maybe spinach in your teeth. probably a good idea to check the mirror before taking that walk. 😉

  6. my tip is to separate lashes after mascara, it also gets extra mascara off and none gets on your face.

  7. My beauty tip for getting ready for a big night out is to use primer before putting on makeup. It makes your makeup last for hours, and keeps the shine/oilies away.

  8. Use a face primer and an eyelid primer. It will keep your foundation and eye shadow on all day. Always make sure to define your brows. That will frame your face and make your eyes really stand out. Lastly use a highlight in the corner of your eyes by the bridge of your nose. It really lightens up your face.

  9. When short on time, I twist my hair up and secure with a decorative clip.

  10. My best red carpet beauty trick is to make sure you get your eyebrows done a few days before the big even. Your brows can really make it or break it! Thank you for the lovely giveaway.

  11. I wash my hair the night before because second-day hair is easier to style 🙂

  12. fun giveaway! for a night out, I always create a great smoky eye for some drama:)

  13. SARAH H.

    I always use a primer under my makeup. Keeps my face looking fresh for hours.

  14. jen gersch

    my tip is to put shine spray in your hair so it dazzles

  15. I have to say always go with the waterproof mascara as you never know what you will run into

  16. Whenever I get ready for a big night out I always make sure to use a mattifying primer before I apply the rest of my makeup. It really helps the shine at bay!

  17. I use an exfoliant mask early the day of any event. This leaves my skin very smooth and moisturizer and foundation go on without any problems and looks so much better.

    mascara makes all the difference!

    I use Q-tips oth as applicators and also, when slightly dampened, to clean up any imperfections in the make-up that was applied.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  20. Courtney

    I love to add a bit of glitter to my body for that sparkle effect!

  21. The day before don’t forget to use a great exfoliator on your decollete, throat & the backs of your hands & use a long lasting moisturizer day of.

  22. take a thin layer of vaseline and put it over your teeth – it makes them super shiny and puts a sparkle in your smile.

  23. Sherry B.

    For a special and long evening out, I use a very thin layer of Milk of Magnesia under my primer to make absolutely certain that my face won’t become a greaseball before the night is over. Of course, I have very oily skin…..

  24. Rachel Newman

    I am a big believer in EXFOLIATING my skin before anything big – to look fresh, clean, and new!

    Big Night Beauty Tip: Try some of those whitening strips to give your teeth a new look.

  26. Suzanne Lewis

    I love to make smoky eyes for a big night out.

  27. I use palm oil on my face before I put on my natural powder makeup. Boy, does that make my skin look nice!

  28. Monique Rizzo

    I use a mask the night before a big date.
    Thanks for the chance.

  29. My beauty tip is to exercise, at least half an hour the day of the event. Gives you more energy and a glow that lasts well into the night.

  30. My tip is to spray aerosol deodorant in my heels. They’re much more comfortable to wear that way!

  31. Eye liner helps to highlight your eyes if you know you’ll be photographed

  32. When in doubt on what to wear, remember that black is slimming

  33. My best red carpet beauty trick is to make sure you bring a small mirror with you so you can take that final glance before everyone else sees you!

  34. manicure, pedicure, and facial before the big event. try on dress before the event in a full body mirror. always have a backup dress and shoes

  35. SLEEP, plenty of rest, and begin makeup with a great moisturizer!
