Finding the right dress
Some women think it’s enough to throw on a simple dress. I say go bold. A mini-skirt can be a great, eye-catching alternative to a dress. I always choose a fun pair of heels because they make me feel tall. They go great with a miniskirt. 

Choose a partner to dance with
Finding the right partner to dance – or just hang out with – is important. Find someone who you have fun with and who makes you laugh – it’s a party, after all. Dancing is great, and someone fun to dance with is even better. 

Go rouge
There are three main cheek colours to choose from: pink, yellow and skin colour. The use of pink can bring out your softer characteristics and highlight your feminine side. Yellow emphasises youth. Skin tones, on the other hand, gives your face a fierce edge, while also looking natural. When choosing a blush, think about how it will complement your outfit. 

Choose Hairdo
Choosing a hairdo is a fun way to express yourself. You can make your hair curly or straight, and choose a look that’s totally different for you. I like pairing a long, sleek dress with simple straight hair. A short, stylish dress goes great with curlier hair. Be creative! 

Snap a photo
Young women spend a lot of time getting ready to go to a party. They may go to the salon to do their makeup and hair and agonise over what to wear. Usually, the party photo is put off until the end of night, when everyone is exhausted and sweat has ruined everyone’s perfect hair and makeup. My suggestion is to snap a photo at the start of the night, when everyone still looks fresh and energised.
