While Hollywood is prepping for the Oscars, we’ve been thinking about all the work that goes into making our favorite celebs look so damn glamorous on this big night. How do they (or their makeup artists — yes they have help) get that amazing red carpet glow? If you have a big Oscar-like event coming up…maybe even the Oscars who knows?…make sure you’re covered with these red carpet must-haves:
The makeup world got a lot more exciting after the invention of lip plumper. What’s better? A good limp plumper + a good gloss all in one.
Our suggestion: Givenchy Pop Gloss. Sephora, $24.50.
Talk about an optical illusion. Fake lashes are the best way to illuminate your eyes and add a dash of intensity.
Our suggestion: Andrea Perma Lash Starter Kit. Sally Beauty Supply, $9.99.
Eye Shadow Palette:
The best way to get a modern, glamorous eye is to layer the right colors and eye shadow palettes make it relatively easy.
Our suggestion: Sephora Colorful Artist Palette. Sephora, $32.
Shimmer, shimmer and more shimmer. But we’re not talking just the face. You need a good illuminating powder to apply all over the body.
Our Suggestion: Urban Decay Flavored Body Powder. Sephora, $26.
Now that the body is nice and sparkly, you need to light up the face. It’s best to use an oil-free highlighter or lotion that will brighten up your complexion but won’t leave you covered in grease.
Our suggestion: Smashbox Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion. Sephora, $24.
