KTLA News Red Carpet Beauty Secrets

by on Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022 with

Award Season Red Carpets have become as much fun and intriguing as the actual shows themselves. Stars photographed getting ready, are great barometers to speak to the latest trends in makeup, anti-aging and tricks for a sleek silhouette in their evening gowns. So I’ve spent the better part of the last couple of weeks researching the latest beauty essentials from Hollywood’s busiest month, so you can learn how to translate these tips for yourself.  Whenever your next special occasion arrives… you’ll be ready.


1. CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask

Price: ($399)


  • Loved by Oscar nominee Carey Mulligan she used it before last year’s Oscar award ceremony & another Oscar winner, Renee Zellweger is also a fan of this LED Infrared Mask. Kristin Davis, Kaley Cuoco, Suki Waterhouse, beauty editor Nina Garcia round out the list of celebrities up on this anti-aging trend.
  • It’s Won A Slew Of Awards In The Beauty Space: Cosmopolitan Beauty Awards 2020, Woman & Home Beauty Awards 2020, Pure Beauty Awards 2020
  • As Seen In: The Strategist, ELLE, Marie Claire, Glamour, VOGUE & Harper’s Bazaar

What’s So Great About This Mask? Combining anti-aging red and near-infrared light therapy, this facial device is clinically proven to reduce wrinkles by 35% in just 4 weeks – 95% of users said their skin tone, texture, firmness and tightness was improved. The fully flexible and wearable mask delivers the perfect dose of dual LED light directly to the skin. It’s been made to medical device directives and delivers the same clinically-proven wavelengths as professional salon machines.Unlike other devices, the mask’s flexibility ensures that the maximum amount of light hits the lower layers of the skin, delivering both instant and long term results.



2. Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Diamond Melt-allic Liquid Eyeshadow 

Price: ($9.99) 

Shop: & Drugstores Nationwide

Celebrities Rocking The Look:

At the SAG Award this past February Lady Gaga, Sandra Oh & Jessica Chastain all shined with this high impact look. Dior’s Fall 2022 Runway Models were spotted w/it & the cast of Euphoria were seen donning vibrant, complex eye looks, often wearing metallic eyeshadows with a mirror-like shine.

What Is So Great About It:

Just a single swipe for show-stopping drama! These multifaceted, multidimensional and transformative liquid eyeshadow offer a 3 tone multi-chrome finish that takes your eyes to the next dimension with color shifting technology. Infused with lustrous diamond dust, mineral water and vitamin E… they dry down quickly and are smudge-proof. Available in 4 shades that can be worn alone or mix-and-matched for an artsy look. BONUS TIP:  You can wear these liquid eyeshadows as eyeliner, IF a full metallic eye is too much. The brand also recently had a celeb makeup artist wear multiple shades – the bronze on lids and then a pop of green under lower lash line—so pretty!

Prefer Using A Pencil?  IF you’re a department store makeup devotee, try Lancôme’s Drama Liqui-Pencil Waterproof Eyeliner in the shade “Leading Lights” ($22) it works perfectly on lids with a metallic/glitter result.

Hollywood Trend:
A beauty trend gaining momentum & buzz in Hollywood? Cryotherapy because this fast blast of cold – typically a 2 to 3 minute treatment – invigorates complexions, firms and tones bodies, up levels circulation and helps relieve symptoms of anxiety before major events without any downtime. This next genius-in-a-jar product I came across, blew up on Tik Tok… and movie industry beauty groomers took note.
Stars Loving Cryo:
Demi Moore, Justin Beiber, Daniel Craig, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys, and Mandy Moore
What’s So Great About It:
Frozen Over is a uniquely ‘cool’ skincare product infused with super-hydrating hyaluronic acid, aloe vera to soothe and calm skin and lemon extract to brighten complexions. This next generation skin saviour – it’s really a moisturizer – can be used at room temperature for an instant burst of moisture OR applied straight from the freezer for icy, soothing, hydration to combat tired, dull or puffy skin. Apply at room temperature for a daily AM and PM moisturizer. Freeze for 2-3 hours and apply straight from the freezer to de-puff eyes and super hydrate your face, décolleté creating an instant glow. Frozen Over can be defrosted and will return to gel texture. 100% vegan, PETA-approved cruelty free, affordable and inclusive for all. Skin Proud formulas are designed to be an introduction into a skincare regimen with a gentle line of basics for Gen Z and Millennials, but us more mature Gen X folks know quality skincare when we see it and are lining up to be “Skin Proud” too.

The Brazilian Butt Lift Trend

5. Bawdy Kit – Butt Sheet Mask Kit

Celebrity Loving The Booty:

Keisha is one celebrity and beauty entrepreneur who loves these masks. ALSO Madonna is a booty fan having talked about the importance of a sexy derrière in 2017. Always a trailblazer!  And it was right around this time that  NYC fitness guru Sylwia Wiesenberg has a spin on the face mask concept, and her company Bawdy was born!

What’s So Great About Bawdy:

This 4 piece mask kit that follows the interactive wellness trend is formulated to firm, tone, detoxify and rejuvenate your butt skin. Each mask includes two separate sheets—one for each cheek—and is infused with plant-based, clean, and potent ingredients. It’s so logical… when you flood a body part, in this case your booty, with moisture, it hydrates and plumps up that particular area that may have been looking depleted. Skincare isn’t just for the face anymore & Hollywood knows it.

How To Use:

Butt mask twice a week or as needed. On clean skin, apply 1 mask to each cheek. Keep on for 10 to 15 minutes. Peel off sheets and rub in the remaining serum. Love your assets.

Bawdy Tip: Apply any leftover serum on your inner thighs, legs, and stomach.
