My #RedCarpetGlam Look

Somehow my invite to award season got lost in the mail. I'll forgive the Academy. However, that isn't stopping me from creating a red carpet ready look. I mentioned how I'm loving side parts and berry lips and that's pretty much all I've been wearing these days. I used P&G beauty products to help achieve a winning, camera-ready red carpet look featuring those two favorite trends of mine. Here's what I used:

Before attending any fabulous event (or just stepping out of your apartment) there's the "pre-prep" or basic fundamentals of any girl's look. Secret's Clinical Strength Light & Fresh Deodorant will help you beat stress sweat and leave you smelling fresh all throughout the day and long into the night. Crest 3D White Whitestrips Professional Effects will give you the perfect smile for all those photos people are going to want to take of you. I tried these when they were first launched and they made my teeth very sensitive. But, I've been using this new formula and I've felt no sensitivity. They also have an advanced seal so they stay on your teeth for the full 30 minutes even while you drink water. Hooray!

Then it was onto the hair! To create this look I washed my hair the night before and twisted it into a bun. In the morning I used Herbal Essences Naked Dry Shampoo because the natural tapioca formula instantly absorbs excess oil and transforms lifeless hair into fresh touchable hair with a little volume. Something my hair definitely needs. Before using my curling iron, I used Vidal Sassoon's Pro Series Heat & Protect Shine Spray. Everyone should use some type of heat protectant before using any styling tools. Your hair will thank you.

And for bold lashes I used COVERGIRL's Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara, which features two brushes and two formulas that help deliver mega volume. Formula one is very similar to the original LashBlast mascara that I love and the other one is a much thicker brush. This is definitely a new favorite of mine.

How would you prep for your red carpet look?

  1. I love the sideswept hair and red lipstick- definitely glam! I love awards season. It's so fun to see what everyone is wearing.

  2. Love the look and what I love most about it is the products you're using are affordable so we can all look Grammy ready!

    Thanks for sharing this with us in this week's issue! I hope you're having a great weekend!

  3. I'm so happy you mentioned that this new Crest Strips has an updated formula to not cause teeth sensitivity. I have my wedding at the end of the year and I'm looking for an affordable way to whiten my teeth without breaking the bank. YAY

    Love your carpet ready look ... I need to wake up with more time to do my makeup in the morning!

  4. @Arelis Cintron oh good, I'm glad I could help! Best of luck with the wedding planning :)
