NEW YORK (WLNY) — Quick beauty fixes for your upcoming big events – everything from express teeth straightening to rapid and affordable at-home laser removal; whether it’s your big day, graduation or you just want a fresh look for summer, beauty expert Jeannine Morris (BeautySweetSpot.com) has got you covered with her top picks to help you get there fast.
1. Straighten Your Teeth
One of the first things people notice about you is your smile. If you have a big event, take things a step beyond whitening and straighten. It makes a huge impact on how people perceive you.

2. Enhance Your Brows
We all used to be obsessed with eyelash enhancers (who doesn’t want longer lashes?), but don’t forget about your brows. Use an enhancing serum (they work), get them professionally groomed then follow the line and make sure to fill them in.

While extensions are Hollywood’s beauty secret to long, full hair, try a hair growth supplement to achieve the results on your own. If you still want a va va voom mane, add clip ins as well.
