Despite the chillier temperatures, winter is often a favorite season among fashionistas everywhere. Why? Because it’s “Red Carpet Season!”
Starting with the Golden Globes and going all the way through to the Academy Awards, Red Carpet Season, or “Awards’ Season,” is perhaps the most glamorous time of year. Celebs attending ceremonies in Hollywood strut the red carpets donning beautiful – and enviable -- gowns and dresses by today’s biggest and brightest designers.
In addition to apparel, because of access to teams of incredible stylists, their hair and make-up is always perfectly flawless.
And though most of us in the real world cannot afford the top stylists or beauty products, we often feel that it’s impossible for us to achieve these same glowing looks.
But world-renowned hairstylist and make-up artist to the stars, Mickey Williams, claims that you can absolutely get the same beauty results with the help of some very inexpensive products found at your local drug store.
Starting literally at the top and working on down, Williams reveals her favorite finds for looking fabulous.
A big trend that Williams noticed on the red carpet at the Golden Globes was natural-looking hair color. There were beautiful browns, gorgeous blondes and fiery reds. To get the same results, try Wella Illumina Color. It’s a sheer, translucent color that's luminous in every kind of light. It’s also permanent color but without permanent damage, and it brings your hair color closest to its virgin state.
Gorgeous skin is always huge among Hollywood starlets and Williams has three budget-friendly products to help you glow too.
When it comes to smooth legs, Williams says go back to the basics – forego painful waxing and lasers and break out the razor again. Her preference is BIC Soleil Savvy. Found at any drug store for only $7.49, you can get a super smooth and flawless shave with the convenience of a refillable cartridge system at the value of a disposable razor. Each package features one disposable handle and four refillable cartridges so each time you buy a new package, it’s like a brand new razor.
For a Hollywood glow, Williams recommends Physicians Formula Sexy Glow Make-Up Collection. Adorably packaged, these bronzers, blushers and lip stains feature ingredients that mimic pheromones to enhance your feminine side while offering glamorous color. They also have a great musk scent.
Lastly, to keep you feeling younger as well as looking younger, Williams suggests SeroVital. It’s an all-natural, scientifically- backed, completely safe human growth hormone supplement that has a gazillion benefits to help you look and feel younger. Or as Williams likes to say, “It’s essentially the ‘fountain of youth’ in a pill form.” Your hair will feel silkier, it will improve your mood and energy levels, and it will give you stronger bones and muscles.
So don’t worry about keeping up with the trends or spending a lot of money. You can look beautiful and feel great with just a few drug store beauty basics.
