KEEP THE PURSE SMALL!
It will be great to lug along some backup makeup, an extra camera, and a pair of flats for when the night’s winding down (*rolling eyes* you may as well pack a suitcase). Nothing ruins a great look like a big daytime purse! Take a clutch. Just make it safe and not too big a statement. It is after all, an accessory.
DO NOT OVERDO YOUR MAKEUP!

Bold red lips are great, but do not do this and a smoky eye. Less is more. You should also take a lip gloss and maybe some mascara with you. All in all, know your limits.
GO FOR SOME KILLER HEELS!
Always wear heels when venturing to a party, “The higher the better.” Platforms are the easiest to walk in.If you know stilettos will be too much of a hassle, wedges are a good compromise because they are more comfortable. if you are not a fan of wedges, opt for shoes thicker heels for balance. Also, make sure the shoes are padded, so they are a bit more comfortable.
WHATEVER YOU DO MOISTURIZE!
If you’re going with bare legs or arms, do not forget to moisturize! “Better yet, mix a bit of shimmer loose powder foundation or even a little cream to your body before applying.”
Always focus on a bold statement look, but be careful not to overcrowd your neck, arms, and fingers with jewelry. If you’re wearing earrings, you can wear a bracelet, and if you are wearing a necklace, you can wear a ring.
DO NOT GET ON THE WORST DRESSED LIST!
Be wary of making too bold a statement, like a white dress to a friend’s wedding, a costume or a crazy new trend that has not made its way to popular culture just yet. Keep it classy.
