‘Tis the season to get glammed up and visit friends and loved ones. But all that rushing around can sometimes result in beauty disasters—from lipstick on the teeth to frizzy party hair and more.

When you’re trying to rush out the door to get to a party, the last thing you want to do is add unnecessary steps to your beauty routine. Here are three easy tips that will make you party-ready without having to add too much additional work.
Face – Prevent lipstick on your teeth by applying extra lip balm to the center of your lips, towards the inside. This will add just enough slipperiness that lipstick won’t be able to adhere to the surface of teeth.
Body – Add a little oil to your moisturizer for smooth, radiant legs. Adding just a little drop of olive oil to your normal lotion will help add a subtle sheen to legs, reflecting light and distracting from any potential blemishes, stretch marks or veins.

Sometimes beauty emergencies pop up that even your party emergency kit can’t handle. Here are a few of my favorite creative tips to solving beauty problems on the fly.
The most important thing is that you feel confident and beautiful when out and about. If you follow my beauty emergency tips, I think you’ll find that no party snafu is too much for you to handle. You can focus your attention where it belongs—on having a great time!
