Red Carpet Beauty Round-Up

So what were some of the hottest looks from the red carpet?

JF: Well, let’s start at the top with the hair, I actually have the inside scoop straight from the Wella Professionals and their top hair experts. They noticed two predominant trends that really rocked the red carpet.

The first was that effortlessly elegant and overtly feminine style, which we saw on stars like Madonna, Claire Danes and Shailene Woodley.

Their warm, glistening tones really brought ultra glam to the carpet.

They were all actually styled with fabulous Wella products, so these beautiful and timeless styles are absolutely attainable.

The other scene-stealing trend to really pop on the red carpet was a retro 60’s style, with a modern twist.  This was popular on stars like, Nicole Richie, who sported a high ponytail and thick 60’s fringe- to Michelle Williams’ playful pixie (which was also styled using Wella).

Fabulous hair starts with a great foundation. I love Wella Professionals Enrich shampoo, conditioner and treatment–the celeb hair gurus call it the “triple threat.”  It delivers lightweight moisture and leaves hair soft, bouncy and full of radiant shine.

Another must- have favorite to prep your hair for the red carpet, or any big event, is Wella’s Velvet Amplifier Hair Primer. Similar to how a makeup primer would prep your skin, it actually amps up how your hair responds to other styling products-so you can create nearly any look.

If you really want to shine like the stars- top off your style with Wella’s Shimmer Delight Shine spray, for that ultra shimmer!

What else can we do to get that red carpet ready when it comes to skin and makeup?

JF: When you’re getting ready for a big event it’s important to keep your skin moisturized in order to achieve that natural glow.

One brand loved by celebrities and GG nominees including, Charlize Theron and Zooey Deschanel, is Cetaphil. They have an entire line of cleansers and moisturizers but one in particular that I love, is the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream, it delivers intense moisture and is really great for the cold winter months when skin can become dry and irritated. It absorbs quickly into the skin, is fragrance free and non-comedogenic so it won’t clog pores or irritate sensitive skin just apply liberally as often as needed, especially after bathing while skin is still damp ($14.99 at drugstores.)

In terms of makeup—we saw those fabulous Angelina red lips or very smokey eyes like Zooey Deschanel and Sophia Vergara. An easy way to get the look is with Physicians Formula ‘s Shimmer Strips, they’re palettes that actually enhance your own eye color and go on so smoothly to give you perfect coverage. With just a little bit of shimmer, they have a wet formula too, that you can actually use as a liner ($10.95 at mass market.)

Everyone knows that prepping skin and getting a perfect makeup look is crucial for a red carpet appearance but it’s just as important to take off all that makeup at night so skin stays looking its best.

Neutrogena has these makeup removing cleansing towelettes that are quick and easy to use.  After a long day, the last thing you want to do is rinse your face over the sink. These make it simple to wipe away the dirt, oil and makeup.  They are so effective they even remove waterproof mascara.
