The glamour, the excitement, the drama. What we wouldn't give to be a part of Hollywood's red carpet. After all, it's a chance to shine in the spotlight, to look and feel beautiful. Whether you're enjoying the single life, a wife or a mom, there's no reason a person can't enjoy a little red carpet glamour of her own, and with these hair and makeup tips and tricks, the leading skincare and beauty portal, carefair.com, will show you how to achieve that red carpet look.
Believe it or not, Hollywood's celebrities are not born with perfect skin, perfect bodies or perfect hair. What we see on the red carpet a lot of times require hours of preparations by Hollywood stylists who fake a few things to make celebrities look their best.
1. Airbrush tans: If you haven't been to the gym lately and you're worried about a perfect body in that stunning dress, try an airbrush tan. Not only do airbrush tans give off a healthy glow, they also add muscle definition where it's needed. This method of tanning is also much safer than tanning beds. You usually find an airbrush-tanning specialist at a local tanning salon and spa.
2. Extensions: If you weren't born with beautiful hair, try extensions. Many celebrities use these when they want their hair to be thicker or just need a little extra when wearing an up-do. If you don't want to commit to a more permanent extension, choose a clip-on extension instead. Most hair extensions are available at a local beauty store or salon. You can also find them at stores that specialize in wig pieces.
3. Wavy hair: If you'd like to opt for a natural approach, loose wavy hair and hair that is parted down the center, are both red carpet winners this year. For loose waves, apply a styling gel to wet hair. Using your fingers, scrunch hair from roots to ends to create a natural wave. Allow the hair to dry naturally. Once dry, you can use a setting spray if you'd like.
5.Get a celebrity hairstyle: If you want a specific style like Jennifer Aniston's, apply a setting gel to wet hair. Using a round boar bristle brush, blow-dry the hair from roots down while pointing the dryer nozzle down as you dry. Once hair is dry, use a flat iron from root to tip to create a smooth look to the hair. Finish this look with a holding spray. If you would like to create a little more shine to this style, follow up with a shine spray.
6. Makeup: It's not just about the hair when it comes to celebrities on the red carpet. Makeup plays a very important role as well when it comes to being in the spotlight. For a look similar to Desperate Housewives' star Teri Hatcher, sweep a pale shadow that is closest to your skin tone across the entire eye. Next apply a medium shade of choice across the lid of the eye and up to the crease. Apply a darker shade along the crease starting at the upper outside corner of the eye, then sweeping in and down toward the crease to create a contour. Next apply brown eyeliner to the upper lash line, and then apply a few coats of mascara to lashes. Finish the look with a soft shade of pink lip color.
