A Classic Cocktail Dress

You can look just as stunning as a celebrity even if you’re throwing your outfit together at the last minute, as long as you have a classic cocktail dress. Have a cocktail dress on the ready at all times and you’ll be sure to make a red carpet-worthy appearance at your next black-tie event. Something as simple as a jersey dress matched with great shoes and jewelry will look phenomenal. You can choose to stick with classic black or maybe try a blue or purple cocktail dress to make your look pop. Red Carpet

Keep Your Makeup Simple

If there is a time to go all-out with your makeup, your next formal black-tie event is not that time. If you’ve been dying to try fake lashes or long hair extensions, give it a go at an event that is not quite as upscale. Instead, abide by the rule that a little goes a long way. Choose one facial feature that you would like to play up and leave the rest of your makeup simple. Stick with a red lip or a smoky eye, not both so as not to overdo it and detract from your overall look.


Most cocktail attire will include baring arms or legs, so it’s very important to moisturize, you may even want to try loose shimmer powder as well. Ideally, it’s a good idea to make an appointment at your favorite day spa before your event for a little pre-party pampering. A relaxing massage will not only ensure that you’re mentally ready for your upcoming event but it will also give your skin a moisturized and healthy glow.

Tame Flyaways

Regardless of if you decide to attend your even sporting a sophisticated updo or sexy waves, it’s important to minimize flyaways. Try using a clear brow gel or flyaway tamer that can be easily toted in your purse or clutch. Apply to your hairline and part and you won’t have to worry about any stray hairs throughout the course of the night.

If you’re planning to attend any black-tie events and you want to look red carpet-ready, make an appointment with Athena Salon and Spa. They offer services and consultations that will leave you looking your best and feeling like a celebrity.
