Gabriella gives us tips on how to look like our favourite celebrity from the Oscars 2016 Red Carpet. And the best thing: all these tips are within our budget!
The biggest awards night in film industry featured all of our favourite celebrities who looked stunning in their fabulous gowns, and sophisticated suits. Polished hair, flawless skin and make-up made the actresses radiant and perfectly complemented the gorgeous dresses. With an entire glam squad on their disposal, it is no wonder they looked so great. Well, fortunately a few inexpensive tricks will help you achieve the red carpet look in no time.
Jennifer Lawrence’s lavish black couture gown with built in corset looked amazing on the red carpet. Considering we are not that lucky to pay thousands of dollars on couture dresses, repurposing is the best alternative. I am sure your prom dress looked amazing, but you thought that was the only time you are going to wear it. It does not have to be the case. If you have a wedding to attend, or some black tie event, try to redesign it, or take it to the tailor. He or she will make the necessary changes that will turn the dress in an appropriate attire for the event. Every time you go shopping for the new elegant clothes focus on pieces that can be used more than once. A black dress is everlasting piece of clothing and it can be combined with various blazers, heels, and accessories.
Shop on Sales
Timeless chic red gown Charlize Theron worn at the Oscars was truly breathtaking. This plunging Christian Dior design can easily be replicated by any tailor. Of course, it will probably not look exactly like the original, but you can bet it will be pretty close.
Shopping in advance may not occur to you, but it will pay off. The wardrobe is most affordable at the end of the season, when the new collection is about to hit the stores. Even if you do not plan on going to a glamorous event, if you find an affordable piece of wardrobe or jewellery buy it and store it in your closet. Once the time comes, you will be prepared, and not have to spend a fortune shopping in the mid of the season.
Hair and Make-up
From long wavy hair, through short slick to beautiful elegant buns, this year Oscar nominees and presenters worn it all. They have spent hours sitting in the chair having their glam squad doing their hair and make-up simultaneously, making them look flawless.
You can have your own red carpet team, just bring all your friends together. Every one of them is probably skilful in some beauty area. If you know how to contour, but have a trouble matching the eye shadow with the rest of the look, that is where the friend jumps in. The same goes for the hair. All you need is a straight or curling iron, a brush and a hairspray. Browse through You Tube and you will find the tutorial for every single look you liked and want to achieve for your evening.
While perfect outfit, hair and make-up might seem as the most important part of the gorgeous look, something else plays the crucial role. Nothing can make you look unattractive the way a problematic skin can. Even the best make-up in the world can fail to hide the acne that appear on your face from time to time. This is why the acne treatment is the best solution for problematic skin. Get rid of the acne completely, before you start putting layers of make-up on the face. If not treated properly, make-up can only make the acne condition worse. You do not want your face to draw the attention away from the fabulous outfit you managed to pull off for that special evening.
Believe it or not, it is not always necessary to spend thousands of dollars in order to look amazing. These few tips and tricks will provide you with the gorgeous look, and save you money at the same time.
