Looking beautiful, fashionable, and glamorous for a party or a night out with friends does not need to be expensive. If you got invited to a party, you may think that you do not have anything to wear or the right makeup to use, but do not fret. It only takes using what you probably already have, or perhaps what a friend has, and getting creative. Small purchases of makeup or inexpensive jewelry can also go a long way in creating the look you want. Here are things that you can do to achieve a glamorous look without the expense:
Try out old outfits that are in your closet
Instead of buying, consider using clothes that are currently in your closet. Sometimes, we buy too many new clothes and we forget about the older ones we already have. There might be a dress there that you bought two years ago because it was on sale, you just never had the opportunity to wear it. Or you simply forgot that you have it!
Borrow from a friend
If you really do not have anything to wear and do not want to spend, it is okay to ask a close friend if you could borrow a party dress. Your friend might have something that is just sitting in their closet, or vice versa, you may have something that you can offer for your friend to borrow in exchange.
There is no need to go to the hair salon
If you want to style your hair like a Hollywood celebrity, you really do not have to go to the salon. All you need to do is to look online for hairstyles that you like and practice doing them on your hair a few days before the party. Practice makes perfect!
Buy drugstore makeup
If you find that you want to buy new makeup for just one night of partying, you do not need to buy an expensive brand. There are a lot of drugstore brand makeups that are good quality yet very inexpensive. Just look online for good brands with positive reviews.
If you already have the makeup, mix and match for different colors
If you already own make up, but you are looking for a particular shade of color that will work for you, you do not really have to buy new ones. All you have to do is to mix and match the colors that you already have. For example, if you wear one shade of lipstick on top of another, the result will be a different color or a different shade (pink plus red for a muted red effect).
You will never go wrong with wearing jeans
When all else fails, who does not have at least a single pair of jeans in their closet? For a party, you can wear a pair that you use every day and spice it up with a nice belt or a colorful, trendy top.
Wear your accessories differently
A necklace that you use all of the time can instead be worn as a bracelet for a party. Or wear your rings on different fingers than you normally would, and wear more than one at the same time. Play with your accessories and you will create an image that is different from your plain, everyday look.
Smile and be confident
And most important of all, on top of wearing nice clothes and make up, strut your stuff with confidence and put a dazzling smile on your face. Being beautiful and glamorous, regardless of how you look outside, really starts with how you feel inside. Confidence sure does exude radiance.
