Make a glam splash at parties with these simple ideas


You don’t need to spend a fortune to feel fabulous – whether you’re going out to a party or entertaining at home. Just follow these simple tips for looking great, whatever your budget.

Getting ready

• Don’t be too ambitious – if you don’t have all afternoon to prettify yourself, don’t panic. Take a shower instead of a bath and wear stunning trousers rather than wrestling with tights.
• Chill out – don’t shower or bath in too-hot water or you’ll still be overheated and flushed when you’re trying to put your make-up and clothes on.
• Moisturise – smooth moisturiser into your skin and allow it to settle so it’s easier to blend your foundation.

The million-dollar outfit

• Go plungy – showing a bit of neck adds glam. Layer two or three necklaces if you don’t want to leave your skin too bare.
• Shine – evening parties need sparkle. Choose a one-coloured dress but go for a bold gold or silver neckpiece with a matching cuff bracelet, or pick a multi-strand bead or pearl necklace.
• Borrow something – switch outfits with a friend for the night. It’ll give you a lift.

Figure-hugging cheats

Even if you don’t feel confident wearing something that clings all over, let your clothes draw eyes where you want them to go!

• Hide tummy and/or bottom – with a maxi dress tailored to draw your boobs up and flatter across your shoulders.
• Hide shoulders – choose a dress that draws in at the waist. Cover shoulders with a shawl or bolero jacket that stops short to show off your middle.
• Hide your top half (if you must!) – wear a clinging long skirt under a top that loosely tumbles from your shoulders to just below your waist so that the skirt tightens elegantly around your ankles; or pick a flowing, short dress and wear boots over black tights for sleek legs.

I really enjoyed taking part and trying out Always Discreet. I love that I can finally feel comfortable running around with my children or even going to the gym. 10/10 from me and my friends as it's left us not just with security but we also feel finally confident, so top marks from us!

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to try Always Discreet. I feel more comfortable now and even my family and friends have been able to talk openly about this. I can now play with my boys on the trampoline without worrying now, it's all the simple things I couldnt/wouldn't do before but now I can. Thank you x
