The LOOK: Oscars + Glam—Red Carpet Style Lessons
Saturday, March 02, 2013
We witnessed yet another Oscar season last week and boy, was it glamorous. Every year around this time, fashionistas are raving over dresses, hair and makeup, so of course our beauty savvy girls are all a-twitter about how they will incorporate these looks into their own. For upcoming events in your life—whether a wedding party or date night—here are some tips to achieve that red carpet look.
1. Messy, not hot messy, updos
Make sure a messy updo is not a hot messy up do, meaning it should be a relaxed updo so there are still elements of form and structure to it but not so coifed. It's imperative to let your stylist know that you want a relaxed look as opposed to a messy one.
2. Complexion is all
Make-up is all about skin, so skip the lip and opt for a fresh, clean, perfected complexion. Remember: when you want a natural, flawless look, it sometimes requires a little more makeup than usual (concealer foundation powder for highlighting, etc.). So, don't get nervous when sitting for makeup 'til the finished look is achieved.
3. Watch the down 'do
We always see and hear that a good dress is destroyed by a down do. For example, Jennifer Aniston this year looked a little juvenile in her pretty princess look and lost all sexuality. That hair would have looked great with maybe a pant suit or pencil skirt, but not for red carpet. Sometimes a woman feels safe covering up her features with her hair but it says nothing about confidence. When attending a major function, go big.
