The Award Show Season, Red Carpet Report

MY 2017 RED CARPET REPORT…
The Golden Globes air this Sunday evening on NBC and you can consider it the inaugural kick off to award show season. Right now, Hollywood’s rolling out the red carpets over at the Beverly Hills Hilton prepping for the star studded night. So I’ve quietly shifted my gears into “girl detective mode” and asked a few Hollywood insiders and makeup artists to educate me, and you via me, about what the stars’ glam squads are using to get everyone from Emma Stone to Viola Davis looking fabulous! So take a peak below at some fun beauty essentials and makeup that won’t even make it’s drugstore debut until February. But you’re reading about it here FIRST!
HE REALLY SAID THIS?
“If I don’t win, the award show loses credibility!” ~ Kanye West
RED CARPET SMILE
PRICE: $24 Each (Toothpaste or Mouthwash) OR $36 for BOTH = Great Deal
WHY THIS IS REVOLUTIONIZING TEETH WHITENING?
To achieve a red carpet smile, I’ve noticed a pattern amongst teeth whitening brands: They all use peroxide to get the job done which is not only a big problem… it’s just down right thoughtless! Here’s why people: although it does tend to work, it breaks down your enamel. Uh, hey McFly… you need your enamel intact to protect your teeth. So, no bueno. The Solution: Pop White’s all about the power of Purple. The brand relies on a patented color correction technique using purple to cancel out the yellow in our teeth (basic color wheel 101). You’ll experience zero sensitivity with this FDA-approved, peroxide-free Toothpaste and Oral Rinse. For optimal results use both the paste and rinse twice a day for 14 consecutive days and you’ll start to “drink the Kool Aid” too! It cleans, brightens and whitens your smile while freshening breath with peppermint oil, Xylitol and Coconut Oil. Products are vegan, gluten and cruelty-free and made in the USA. I’ve been using both the mouthwash and toothpaste for 1 month now and I’m loving that my pearly whites truly look way more pearly!
RED CARPET HAIR TIP
KERASTASE ELIXIR ULTIME BI-PHASE SPRAY OIL
SHOP: Available at Kerastase-USA.com and Kérastase Salons
WOW PERK: The Bi-Phase Spray Oil can be used on wet hair before styling and after as a finishing spray! Perfect for fine hair which is huge because those with fine hair steer clear of using oil for fear it will weigh their hair down!
THE INSIDE SCOOP:
Kérastase introduces the innovative breakthrough to their cult Elixir Ultime collection – Elixir Ultime Bi-Phase Spray Oil. The brand’s first-to-market bi-phase spray oil, this mist is designed specifically for fine hair. For years, those with fine hair have steered clear of using oils for fear of weighing the hair down. Intra-Cylane™ Technology, provides the power to expand hair’s thickness, amplifying the diameter of each individual hair strand, combined with the carrier oils in the Oleo-Complexe Technology providing ultimate shine and softness. The spray functionality helps to facilitate application and diffusion throughout the hair. After use, hair is left feeling lightweight and voluminous with enhanced body and opulent shine.
THIS MAKEUP ISN’T EVEN OUT YET!
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint (multiple shades), $16.99
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Concealer $14.99
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Shine, $9.99, (8 Shades)
Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Lip Treatment, $9.99
PERKS: You’re finding out about this before anyone else. When you see Kerry Washington and Kristen Bell Sunday night, it’s a strong possibility these Neutrogena brand ambassadors will be rockin’ some interesting new makeup no one else will be wearing on the Golden Globes red carpet. Here’s the scoopage: 2 years ago Neutrogena launched a collection of moisturizers called “Hydrogel.” It’s weightless, water-gel, oil-free, super fast absorbing AND drenches your skin in hylauronic serum which floods skin with hydration for approximately 24 hours. It blew up and drugstores were selling it faster then Neutrogena could make it. So they got the brilliant idea: why not land this super serum into all our makeup! So now this new makeup collection: foundation, concealer, lip treatment and lip glosses are all amped up with hydro gel to the benefit of everyone’s appearance. And so this is roughly 3 weeks away from your makeup bags as it’s debut is this February.
SHOP: Available nationwide starting February 2017
GRAVITY DEFYING RED CARPET SKINCARE TIP
Amino Genesis EYE Control Lid Lifting & Dark Circle Serum
PRICE: $49.95, SAVE 10% Off, USE CODE: “AZ10” At Checkout
WOW PERK: All these eye creams and serums work on puffiness, dark circles and fine lines, but none actually does any noticeably lifting to benefit lids. Until Now… This has become one of Hollywood Makeup Artists best Kept Secrets to lift an actress’s lids fast, especially when they about to hit a red carpet or are shooting a big scene. Eye Control is the first cosmetic product in history to help tighten and lift sagging upper eye lids while at the same time improving the appearance of crows feet and dark circles. All of this is caused by something called Glycation. In simple terms think of what happens to bread as you toast a piece in the toaster…it becomes tight, dry, and brown. Well as we age, much the same thing is happening to our complexions. In Amino Genesis’s clinicals, 61% of participants noticed an improvement in their drooping eyelids with consistent use of Eye Control over a 60 day period. Definitely the product to get on radars and try before seriously considering the cost and pain involved with any surgical procedures and a secret weapon if you have a red carpet special occasion coming up.
