So you have a wedding to go to but you didn’t start dieting and working out 3 months ahead of time like you promised yourself you would? Or you have an ultra-sexy Halloween costume that you bought last November and NEED to fit into by next week? There is no need to set up a tent at your gym or become an uber-bitch from only drinking cucumber juice for every meal.
Here are 8 fast and easy tips to put to use that will help you look thinner, but most of all, confident for that big occasion:
Wear shoes with pointy toes and heels
Long, pointed lines give the illusion of a longer and thinner leg
Show some cleavage
When all that is exposed is a peek at the girls, nobody’s eyes will be wandering to your midsection or thighs
Become friends with Spanx
There is no shame in using this wonderful shapewear to tuck things in and be certain that they will not fall back out throughout the night
Wear one color
When colors are chopped up between the top and bottom, the eye is forced to look to the point of change i.e. your stomach or arms
Fake it til you make it
A spray tan or bronzer lotion will even out your skin tone and instantly create a glowing look that is sure to make people wonder where you just got back from vacationing
Wear your hair out of your face
Wearing your hair in a classic updo will create a streamline effect for your face and being out your cheekbones
Make sure your undergarments fit
A correctly fitting bra and underwear can make a world of difference. They can make you stand up straighter and eliminate the ugly bulge of a too-small pair of underwear and bra. Invest in no-show or no-line items made from a thin and smooth material.
Throw a jacket over it
A blazer or sports coat is easy to throw on, comes in different thicknesses and will never go out of style. They are great for covering trouble areas like arms and midsections without looking like you are trying to cover them purposely.
