Here are our foolproof ways to shimmer and shine in all of the season's prettiest, skimpiest cocktail dresses. If You're Wearing...A Plunging V-NeckFeeling daring like Jennifer Aniston? Add subtle shimmer to your chest and decollete with a dollop of Victoria's Secret Shimmer Lotion ($20, victoriassecret.com). 02 of 05 A Backless Dress INF; Courtesy Photo Because our back tends to be out of sight, it's no surprise that things can get a little dicey. If you opt for a plunging number like Lea Michele, a few spritzes of Murad Clarifying Body Spray ($37, murad.com) will quickly dry out pesky blemishes with its potent blend of retinol and salicylic acid. Even better? The spray works upside down, so you can easily target hard-to-reach zones. 03 of 05 A Micro Mini INF; Courtesy Photo Skip black tights and bare it all like Nikki Reed. (A flash of leg is a welcome surprise in winter months.) Nip + Fab Cellulite Fix ($18, target.com) tightens skin with proven cellulite fighter caffeine; a line of Charlotte Ronson Face amp Body Glow ($18, sephora.com) along the center of your shins adds slimming dimension. 04 of 05 A Shoulder-Baring Dress Charles Eshelman/Wireimage; Courtesy Photo A high-collared dress like Kate Bosworth's accentuates delicate bone structure-and highlights awkward tan lines. Even things out with a wash of streak-proof gradual sunless tanner like Jergen's Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer ($9, drugstore.com). The updated formulation lasts twice as long as the original. 05 of 05 A Strapless Dress Christian Augustin/Wireimage; Courtesy Photo You don't have to be half-naked to look fully sexy. Emma Stone's collarbones are elegant and alluring-and yours can be too, especially with a light dusting of Urban Decay Sparkling Body Powder ($20, urbandecay.com), which leaves behind a fine shimmer, not chunks of glitter.
