12 ways to get head-to-toe glamour in a hurry.

WebMD Weight Loss Clinic-Feature

Puttin' on the Glitz

Cooking. Cleaning. Errands. Kids. We already have too much to do in a day. As if that were not enough, we're also expected to look spectacular for any socializing that goes on.

If glamming it up seems way too time-consuming for your busy life, take heart. Fashion and beauty experts who spoke to WebMD shared 12 tricks of the trade that can help you put on the glitz in record time.

1. Luscious lips. Among the most popular tricks of the glamour trade: Red lipstick for instant pizzazz. "If you wear a red lip color, you instantly signal 'glamour' -- even if you're wearing the simplest outfit," says Cheryl Kramer, beauty director for Redbook Magazine.

If you're thinking "oh no, not on me," Kramer says it's true -- not every woman can wear the classic matte red. But, she says, most of us can find at least a couple of shades of glossy red that look great.

Still not convinced? Makeup artist Craig Jessup suggests wearing a caramel-color "nude" lipstick topped with a bright berry gloss for a look that is both festive and trendy.

"When choosing a gloss, look for a fine grade of pearl pigment -- one that contains glitter, but ground very fine so that you don't actually see any particles. Then the look is just one of intense wetness and shine," says Jessup, resident makeup artist for the Kevyn Aucoin line of beauty products.

2. Maximum mascara. If you're going from a day at the office to night at the office party, take a tip from the stars and punch up your look with extra mascara, says Carol Straley, beauty director of the new beauty, fashion, celebrity, and lifestyle magazine Life and Style Weekly.

"Most women only wear one coat of mascara, but if you put on a second or third coat at end of the day -- concentrating on the outer edges, and making sure to coat your lower lashes -- that definitely adds drama to your look," Straley tells WebMD.

3. The smoky eye. If you have a few more minutes to spare, experts say the celebrity nighttime look of the moment is a smoldering, smoky eye -- and it's easier to achieve than you might think.
