Look Better by Tomorrow

What a difference a day makes: Get a flaunt-worthy physique with quick-fix tricks that actually work.

Most Popular

Neck

While beachy waves are sexy, "a high ponytail makes the neck look long and thin," says Sacha Quarles, former stylist for Sex and the City.

Cleavage

"With between-the-breasts as your canvas, use shimmery bronze to create depth and shimmery silver to feign the illusion of fullness," says Linda Hay, lead makeup artist for Victoria's Secret.

Triceps

To tone upper arms, Olympic gold-medal swimmer Melanie Valerio advises grabbing a can of soup in each hand, then, with arms bent in front of you at a 90-degree angle, lowering and raising them. Do three sets of 10.

Nails

"Soak nails in freshly squeezed lemon juice to remove stains and leave tips clean and bright," says Ann Marie Cilmi of Bliss Spa. Follow with nail oil and buff to a shine.

Most Popular

Waistline

"To make the waist look narrower, use a white pencil liner to dot an egg shape on each side, starting below the rib cage. Fill in just this area with a self-tanner one shade darker than your natural skin and blend," says Cindy Barshop, owner of Completely Bare spas.

SLIM YOUR LEGS AND WAIST

Butt

Smooth and tighten the derriere by exfoliating with a caffeine-based scrub. Wearing a skimpy bikini? "Apply self-tanner all overexposed cheeks in one shade darker than tanned legs," suggests Barshop.

Legs

When legs need to be ready for their close-up, professionals call for makeup. "For camera-ready perfection, I use Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs in Medium Glow. It not only covers scars and tattoos but also makes legs look longer and calves more sculpted," says Wendi San George, head makeup artist for Deal or No Deal.

HOW TO APPLY SELF TANNER TO YOUR LEGS

Cellulite

"Rubbing a natural-bristle brush upward on dry skin can minimize skin dimpling," says Cilmi, "since increased circulation breaks up toxins."

Thighs

Some swear it is possible to melt away up to an inch - if only temporarily - with anticellulite creams. Massage cream into thighs, then wrap with Saran Wrap to seal in all-important heat. Remove after 20 minutes.

HOW TO WORK YOUR INNER THIGHS

Feet

To elongate legs, wear flesh-tone sandals with a single strap. Multiple straps can make legs look stumpy, says Deb Svarc, makeup artist for Pout cosmetics.
