Achieve Your Flawless, CAMERA-READY LOOK


Much like prepping for an exam or job interview, the only way to ace your upcoming red carpet moment is to plan in advance. The secret lies in the behind- the-scenes miracle products that give your body and face a flawless finish all night long. With years of experience walking the red carpet and putting in long hours at television studios only to wrap the night wanting to look equally fabulous for my hubby, I know a thing or two about the tools that will ensure you win n the award for “Best Looking Guest” at your next soiree.

1. Urban Decay – All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray It’s great when the professionals can do your makeup and follow you around all day for touch ups. When that’s not an option, I spritz my made-up face with Urban Decay Makeup Setting Sprays. The All Nighter fights fading and caking for up to 16 hours. $30,

2. HookedUp – High Waist Shaping Slip When you need full body coverage but want to avoid that icky muffin top from forming between the bottom part of your bra and the top part of your shapewear, turn to HookedUp. I’m new to this product and already hooked, pardon the pun. Dascha Polanco and Mayim Bialik have already worn HookedUp on the red carpet. $68,

3. Hollywood Fashion Secrets – Fashion Tape Shapes You might be all about the bass, but you’ll be in quite a bit of fashion trouble if your bits and baubles aren’t contained in your garment. To avoid peek-a-boos at cousin Jessie’s Bar Mitzvah, put your trust in the fashion tape masters, Hollywood Fashion Secrets. This new package contains assorted, tape shapes ideal for avoiding numerous blunders. $9.99,

4. Hollywood Fashion Secrets – Accessory Tape Dots If you have skinny wrists, like me, then a beautiful cuff is often more of a nuisance than an asset to your award-winning ensemble. With these clever dot tapes, cuffs, bib necklaces, even shoe straps will remain in their place as you dance the night away. $4.99

5. Rimmel London – Moisture Renew Liner Much like I parent my children, I give my lipstick freedom to do whatever it wants … in a confined space. That space is well defined by Rimmel London’s clear Moisture Renew Liner, which has put an end to my worries about bleeding and smudging. $6.49,

6. SPANX – Skinny Britches Short The mere existence of shapewear is proof that God is a woman! My all-time favorite shapewear is SPANX’s Skinny Britches collection, which is ideal for layering thanks to an ultra-lightweight feel and seamless look. Yes, I layer, because some nights you just want to be that extra skinny britch. $48,

7. Hanes – Silk Reflections Ultra Sheer Toeless Pantyhose For work and weekend, my mother always slipped her legs into Hanes Silk Reflections, raving about the reinforced toe and perfect sheen. Call me old fashioned, but even today I can’t stand to do a bare leg; so for spring and summer social gatherings my legs get red carpet-ready shine even in exposed toe sandals, thanks to Hanes’ sheer toeless pantyhose. $10,
