PREPARATION IS KEY!
If you prep properly, you LOOK like you put a lot of time and effort into your style without the hard work.
1. Be Camera Ready!
Many of the pictures from the office parties end up in the Corporate newsletters or are emailed as news blasts to everyone in the company. Make sure your smile isn't full of coffee stained teeth from late night hours of work and holiday shopping. Polish away surface stains with Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste, which is the most awarded whitening brand, to create a brighter smile. Leading up to the party, give yourself a whitening boost by applying Crest 3D White Professional Effects Whitestrips. The secret is in the strip as they work to remove up to 14 years of deeply set-in stains.
2. Don't Undo Your Style
The last thing you want are sweat marks on your clothes while shaking hands with a CEO or stains smeared on your garment from deodorant. So choose an antiperspirant that fights wetness but won't leave a trail of white marks when you dress, like Secret Natural Mineral. It uses odor fighting capsules that work with your body to help neutralize odor instead of just masking it. Opt for the unscented version that won't compete with any fragrances that you decide to wear for the evening.

2. Brighten Your Skin
The holiday season is stressful and makes skin look dull and lifeless so before you use your regular moisturizer start with serum like Le Mieux Vita-C which uses a powerful stable form of vitamin C called MAP (magnesium ascorbyl phosphate) that penetrates 31% faster into skin. It boosts hydration, collagen production and brightens skin by repairing sun damage and hyperpigmentation. At spas, salons or www.lemieuxcosmetics.com.
3. Minimize Makeup Maintenance
Eyeshadow can fade by the end of the day so use a shadows like Covergirl Intense Shadowblast, that is highly pigmented and has a built in primer. Color is waterproof, fadeproof and smudge proof for less touch ups. Create a simply yet sophisticated look by applying color on lid to crease for day, and adding liner at lash line by night.
