Oscar’s Red Carpet beauty tutorials
By Carla Snuggs
We loved watching the red carpet for the Oscar’s a few weeks ago and the stars did not disappoint! While most people went gaga over J Lo’s show-stopping princess dress moment, we were focused on all of the glamorous beauty looks.
Here are some tips on how to get some of our favorite looks at home using products from Dermelect, glō minerals, GOLDFADEN MD, Keratin Complex, La Bella Donna and Palladio Beauty along with a few expert tips from industry insiders; Elle, celebrity manicurist and color curator for Dermelect, Marc Mena, celebrity hair stylist and E! Style Collective Ambassador and Dominique Bossavy, micro color infusion specialist to the stars!
Margot was one of the most talked about celebs, and it wasn’t just for her couture dress. Margot complimented her sexy dress with simple yet classic femme fatale hair and makeup. Her flawless brows certainly took center stage!
Use glō minerals Brow Powder Duo in Brown ($24.50, gloprofessional.com) to sculpt the arch of the brow, moving inward with soft, feathery strokes then finishing at the outside. Dominique Bossavy recommends avoiding using a color that is too dark, exaggerating a geometrical shape such as; too square, too round, or an over exaggerated arch. Finish your look with La Bella Donna’s Mineral Light Lip Colour in Mindful Red ($24.50, labelladonna.com); it’s the perfect shade of red to recreate her pout at home.
Jennifer Lopez and her décolletage was certainly a hot topic that night.
In order to prep your girls for a low cut dress like J Lo’s; try using GOLDFADEN MD’s Doctor’s Scrub Advanced ($98, goldfadenmd.com) combined with warm water in your palms and massage in a circular motion 1-2 times per week or as needed. Rinse with warm water to reveal radiant clear skin. Follow up with glō therapeutics Volumizing Breast Cream ($65, gloprofessional.com) to stimulate blood flow and moisturize the breast area. This leads to higher concentration of lipid accumulation, enhancing curves and encouraging fuller breast volume.
Celebrity hair stylist and E! Style Collective Ambassador, Marc Mena, gave us easy tips on how to get Chrissy Teigen’s bombshell waves.
Marc Mena recommends towel drying hair to create body. Apply a volumizing spray from roots to end, like Keratin Complex Vita Volume ($25, keratincomplex.com), and then blow-dry hair in sections using a round brush. After blow-drying each section, place large rollers in 1 inch sections throughout your hair, leaving them in for 15 minutes. Use Keratin Complex Flex Flow ($25, keratincomplex.com) to create a flexible hold. Using a 1-3/4 inch curling iron, curl hair from mid-shaft to ends on a low heat setting, creating loose waves. Spray hair one last time using the hairspray and run your fingers through the hair to further break up the curls for waves like Chrissy’s!
Jennifer Aniston is known for her classically chic style. Her look was no exception!
Palladio’s Silk FX Palette in Debutante ($12, palladiobeauty.com) has the perfect eye shadow shades to replicate her makeup at home. Use the top, champagne shade over the lid of the eye, into the inner corner, and on the inner third of the lower lash line. Apply the second, ivory matte shade onto the brow bone to define and lift. Use the third, matte taupe shade as a liner on the lower lash line as well as in the crease of the eyelid. Smudge the darkest shade into the upper lash line to accentuate your liner.
Finish off the look with a swipe of Dermelect ‘ME’ Nail Lacquer in Moon Kissed ($14, dermelect.com). Celebrity manicurist Elle recommends using the Dermelect Memento Manicure Extender Top Coat ($16, dermelect.com) to achieve the perfect, long-lasting gel shine on your polish.
