Earlier this week I had the chance to speak to a group of lovely ladies at an event held at theSusan J.Komen Holiday House,a townhouse that's been gorgeously decorated by VIP interior teams—viewers can pay to take a tour of the impeccably designed abode and all proceeds go to benefit the NYC branch of Susan G.Komen for the Cure.(If you live in New York,check it out!It's a treat--and as beautiful as it is thoughtful!).

Anyhow,a number of gals gathered to share their tips (including famous matchmakerSamantha Danielswas on hand in the "Love Lounge" to dish up some dating advice).And so of course,I shared some of my best williamhill388beauty tips for holiday dates and winter fun including…

Coconut Milk

Believe it or not,it's one of the cheapest wonders of the williamhill388beauty world!A can costs only $3.99 or less at the supermarket,the stuff makes an awesome body moisturizer or hair conditioner and smells so good,你甚至不需要喷上香水!The trick is to open the can and let it evaporate until it turns into a thick butter-like consistency.Then use it anywhere and everywhere.It's not greasy or sticky.Yum!


Koh-Gen-Do Stretch Eye Sheets__

These are my saviors—and a favorite of many celeb makeup artists.They come with two single-use,hyper-moisturizing eye masks you wear for ten minutes and I swear,it sends your under-eye bags packing!Do it before a date or party and rub the excess lotion into your skin for the perfect amount of dewiness.

Laura Geller Eye Rimz

Use the teal/black/silver combo as an eye liner to go from day-to-night in an instant.It's the easiest way to get a smoky sexy eye look in seconds.(I also heart Nars Brush# 4 to help DIY smoky eyes in a flash.You just dip it in shadow,rim your upper lashes,then make a "V" shape in the outer corner and smudge the color down a bit.If you're timid about the smolder-y eye makeup look,try with a light color first!

Dr.David Colbert's goodies

While they're a little pricey,the products mimic the celebrity skin doc's in-office Triad treatment that A-listers use as a pre-red-carpet refresher.Because the products stimulate collagen and has all the nutrition your skin needs,Dr.Colbert says combined with a low glycemic,organic farm-fresh diet,it's better than Botox!(Good news for those of us freaked out by needles and um,sharp price tags!) All I know is that Colbert's stuff has definitely been making my skin glow these days.

Medical tape

Yes,that's right.I picked up this so-crazy-it-just-might-work skincare trick fromEllen Marmur,Chief of Dermatological Surgery at Mt.Sinai Hospital in New York,when I was working on theRockstar Dermatologist story for a recentGlamour issue.Dr.Marmur suggests using medical paper tape—the kind you buy in the drugstore for bandaging gauze—as an eye de-puffer.Put a strip under each eye before you go to bed and it will "retrain" the water (aka the root of all those puff eyes) to go elsewhere.Of course I don't recommend this on date night in case things don't go quite right!
