A Few Little Tricks Might Help You Sparkle
If you are going to a party or out on the town to ring in the New Year, of course you want to shine. Here are some of her ideas and some of the products that were used to illustrate them on the show:

The Little Black Dress: If you don’t have one, you should get one. You don’t need to spend a ton of money on it. You can get a black strapless tube dress for $69.50 or a black beaded halter dress for $98 at Express stores. For help finding an Express store, click here.

Makeup: This is also something that is simple and can make a big difference in the way you look from day to night.
The “smoky eyes” look is popular, and you can use the Tarte Peep Show Palette in Amber ($37, 800-HBendel) to get it.

Chanel is out with a new limited-edition metallic eye-shadow compact that is designed to resemble the sequins that are sewn onto a Chanel gown. Here is the information:
