With the Oscars last night, we’re feeling inspired by all the gorgeous beauty looks. But Award worthy beauty doesn’t happen in a day. We’re talking all about how to get ready for a party, Oscar style. Settle down for a pampering session and discover how to get your skin, hair and body party-ready and in its best condition. We might not have headed off to LA to celebrate this year’s Oscars, but a girl can dream (and preen!)
Skin Care Tips to get ready for a Party
Getting ready for the Oscars Awards Ceremony can start months before for the Stars of the Red Carpet. Weeks of planning goes into creating couture gowns, perfect hairstyles and makeup to match. We may not have these beauty experts on hand to spend hours getting us ready, but we do have our own expertise and experience of what products really work. Getting that glow and gorgeous hair to boot is incredibly easy when you follow these simple steps.
While it may seem crazy that celebrities plan months ahead to get themselves in tip-top beauty condition, there is actually some method behind the madness. Giving yourself time to prepare, preen and perfect will ensure that when that special event comes around, your skin, hair and nails look their healthiest and best. If you are attending a summer wedding or special event, then adopting a great skincare regime now will give you a gorgeous radiance and glow to show off when it comes around. We do however understand that time can run away with us, so we have also included some last-minute beauty products which, if you have left it to the very last second will ensure you still look beautiful.
Dr. Harold Lancer is the go-to Dermatologist for many celebrities, including Scarlett Johansson and Michelle Williams, so beginning your regime with his products only seems logical. The Deluxe Travel Set contains his infamous “Method” along side sample sizes of the Eye Contour Lifting Cream, Lift Serum and Intensive Night Treatment (which we think is amazing.) Start this regime as soon as possible and not only the night before your party. The longer you use Lancer Skincare, the better your skin will become.
Make sure you don’t forget to treat your hair before a big event. We love Moroccanoil’s Hydrate Treatment Collection which not only contains their Light Hydrating Mask but their Shampoo and Conditioner too. The products contain key vitamins, nutrients and of course their infamous Argan Oil to rehydrate your hair and leave it feeling silky soft and smooth. Whether you have dull locks in need of a boost or seriously dehydrated hair, this is the collection for you.
This gorgeous mask from Origins is our go-to product when our skin needs a boost of radiance. Enriched with Mediterranean Rose Clay and Canadian Willowherb; the mask gently cleanses your skin without irritation. Jojoba beads help to decongest and combat signs of dehydration and dullness to leave skin feeling luminous and glowing. We love to use this when our skin needs an instant radiance before a party.
This kit from Luster is great for removing surface stains and leaving you with a bright and healthy smile. If you have signs of discolouration which you would light to lighten, then this kit is perfect. Containing a Whitening Solution, Gel, and Light, alongside a shade guide for ease; it will give you a more confident and whiter smile in as little as 10 treatments. As the Oscars and many more parties involve a lot of smiling and photos, this is one step you will not to skip.
This luxurious scrub from REN is perfect for buffing away dead skin cells and leaving your skin feeling radiant and smooth. As REN products are free from nasties such as parabens and sulfates, you can be sure that you are using only the best. Enriched with Basil, Peppermint and Olive oils which not only hydrate and smooth, but smell delicious, this scrub will leave your skin Oscar-worthy ready.
Ah Mio! The skincare brand we can always rely on when our skin needs a boost. We fell in love with their Liquid Yoga to soothe our aching legs, but now we have fallen in love all over again with their Body Butter. If the smell doesn’t send you head over heels, then its never-ending list of skincare benefits will. Enriched with powerful antioxidants to intensely nourish and protect the skin, you can be sure to glow glow glow on that Red Carpet when you slather this all over.
I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
