Since we have recently been bombarded with many awards events lately I figured Id do a blog post on what some celebrities do to look amazing on the red carpet. I was randomly reading a magazine one day and I came across a couple of red carpet secrets that I thought where fun that I wanted to share with you.
When you have a special event coming up, exfoliate your skin the day before the event. Also, try wearing a hydrating mask for at least 10 minutes the day of an event. The extra hydration will not only allow your make up to lay smooth on the face, but will provide a natural glow to the skin.
*Note: I suggest not trying NEW skin care products right before an event. Try a product at least two weeks before an event to make sure your skin has no adverse reactions.
Not that this is really a ‘secret’ but, get down to spray town! Thats right, get yourself a spray tan. Also, YES you can allow them to spray your face, but ask for it light. Its better to be too light than too dark. You can always darken your face further with make up.
*Qtlissy’s tip: Make sure to exfoliate 24hours before you go spray tanning. Having freshly exfoliated skin will allow your spray tan to go on more even and last longer. Also, after your first shower after your spray tan hydrate hydrate hydrate!
FOUNDATION ON YOUR WHAT??? No! Not what your thinking… Foundation on your legs. Yup thats right! Take your foundation or ideally a foundation a few shades darker than your natural skintone (it does not have to be an expensive foundation) and mix with body lotion and apply mixture to legs. Not only will this give you a great glow but it will help to even out skin tone and cover up any imperfections.
*Qtlissy’s Tip: Try Loreals “True Match” foundation for your legs mixed with your favorite body lotion.
DRINK WATER! I hear this about so many celebrities: when they have a big shoot or a red carpet event they guzzle tons of water, Water helps to release toxins from your body and helps your skin stay plump and glow. Sometimes eight glasses a day just isn’t enough, if we are even able to get that much. It is suggested, that ideally you want to drink half your body weight in ounces of spring water everyday before a big event. Bottoms UP!
