It’s officially awards show season! And one of our favorite awards shows just so happens to be taking place this January. Every year, our favorite actresses inspire us with the gorgeous makeup looks and hairstyles they rock as they make their way down the red carpet. Seriously, their lipstick and eye makeup always looks on point—and their updos and braids have us swooning with envy.
If you’re ready to have your own red carpet moment, we’re here to help. You don’t need an entire team of makeup artists and hairstylists at your beck and call to create glamourous hairstyles and makeup looks. Keep reading for a red carpet skin care routine featuring face scrubs and anti-aging moisturizer, along with makeup and hair products that can help you prep for a big night out, including mascara, highlighter, shampoo, conditioner, and hair spray.
Your red carpet moment starts with the right skin care routine. While you may not have the time or money to hit up a spa, that doesn’t mean you can’t pamper your skin from the comfort of your own home. Use a face scrub, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub for clogged pores, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub for dull skin, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub for dry skin.
Once you’re done exfoliating, follow up with an anti-aging moisturizer, like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Cicacream Face Moisturizer Pro-Retinol & Centella Asiatica. Skin feels softer and looks smoother immediately, while the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is diminished with continued use over time.
Creating the appearance of glowing skin is easy with the right highlighter, and we’ve got plenty to choose from. A few ideas: Try adding a few highlighter drops, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Drops, into your foundation; dusting shades from the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette onto the high points of your face to highlight and contour; using a fluffy makeup brush to apply the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Shimmerista Highlighting Powder to your collarbones; and following foundation with the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer.
When you’re looking for your makeup to make a real impact, reach for a fiber mascara, like the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara. This dual-ended mascara features a primer on one end and a fiber-infused mascara on the other. Apply the primer first, then the mascara.
There’s nothing worse than noticing your lipstick has smeared or smudged halfway through a party. So, pick a long-lasting liquid lipstick, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick, instead. (This is How to Remove Liquid Lipstick at the end of the night.)
Before styling your hair, it’s time to hop in the shower! Look for a system of shampoo and conditioner formulated for your hair type. Have colored hair? Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Intensive Protecting Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Intensive Protecting Conditioner. Have oily roots? Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Clay Conditioner.
Just as it can be super-frustrating when your lipstick budges, it can also be annoying when your hairstyle starts coming undone. Once you’re done styling your hair, set your look with a hair spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold. Now strut your stuff like you mean it!
One last step before you’re ready to own that red carpet. If you’ve noticed gray roots coming in but don’t have time for a hair color touch up, temporarily hide them with the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up, which is lightweight and comes in a variety of shades.
