1. Ring Around the Collar
"To create the illusion of a more sculpted shoulder and neck area, shade and blend bronzer into the hollows of the collar bones," explains makeup artist Marissa Nemes, who works with Victoria's Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel. "Then, take a translucent, illuminating powder and apply it directly to the ridges of your decollete to make it stand out. Thistrick will slim out the top part of your body in less than two minutes!"
2. Bronze Beauties
"If you need definition and color, use cream bronzer to highlight your eyes, lips, and cheeks," advises celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow, whose client roster includes celebs like Mary Louise Parker and Natalie Portman.
3. Shin-y Star
"When wearing short skirts, add a little highlighter up the centerof each leg to contour," suggests Meredith Baraf, a Victoria's Secret makeup artist who regularly works with Adriana Lima. "This trick reflects light to the middle of the leg and recedes over the outer leg, making your gams look leaner and longer."
4. Quick Texture
"Use a large-barreled curling iron to add bounce to straight hair," advises Redken Creative Consultant, Guido. "Keep the tongopen and wrap small sections of hair around the iron, leaving the ends out. Do this in random pieces throughout your hair, all around your head. The rougher it looks the better—then tousle the curls out with your fingers."
5. Bunny Honey
The perfect fix-all for limp or frizzy hair? "Wear it up in a tight, high, ballerina bun," advises Instyler spokesperson and celebrity hairstylist DeanBanowetz. "This look is super and really shows off bone structure, too."
6. Slim Gyms
"When rocking shape wear, always make sure you buy the correct size," warns Spanx founder Sarah Blakely. "If you’re in the right fit, your shaper shouldn’t roll, ride, or pinch. Sometimes women think that sizing down drastically will give them extra slimming compression, but it often sacrifices fit andcomfort."
"When my hair feels frazzled, I throw two egg yolks—they're packed with lecithin—on my head, and top it with a handful of purifying shampoo. If I leave the mix on for 20 minutes, rinse and dry, I end up with dazzling shine," explains Marcia Kilgore, founder of Bliss, Fit Flops, and Soap & Glory.
8. Smoky Bare
"For a quick, red-carpet ready smoky eye, apply yourdramatic makeup in phases," explains Pati Dubroff, Clarins Celebrity Beauty Artist and makeup maven to the likes of Charlize Theron and Eva Mendes. "As you line your upper lash line, smudge the line with your finger, blink repeatedly, then blend. Keep blending and applying additional layers of pencil until you get the density of smoke you want or you run out of time.”
9. Simple Solutions
"For ared-carpet worthy style in less than five minutes, rake a leave-in cream through strands and part to one side," explains Dove Celebrity Stylist Mark Townsend (Lea Michele and Jennifer Lawrence are fans). "Then, pull your hair into a low braid, and tuck and pin the ends beneath the base. Finish with extra-hold hairspray to prevent wispies."

"Before a presentation or date,I always like to use a hydrating mask for 5-10 minutes for the antioxidant benefits," says Beauty.com Luxury Skincare and Fragrance Category Manager, Suzy Lang. "You can also use this time to check up on emails."
11. Mani Makeover
"Last minute mani's and pedi's can be a gamble, but Liquid Palisade makes it foolproof," notes Vanessa Kuykendall, Beauty.com's Category Manager for Makeup, HairCare, and Accessories.
