Get Red Carpet Gorgeous with These Oscars Inspired Picks!

The Oscars have come and gone once again, and while we wait for yet another fabulous year in film we are swooning over the many beautiful looks we saw on the red carpet! From gorgeous gowns, to flawless skin, the celebrities dazzled this year, and I want to share my favorite tips for achieving some of the top trends with you! Are you ready for it?!

Red Carpet Beauties

KENRA THICKENING SPRAY | JENNIFER ANNISTON | VOLUMINOUS HAIR | OSCARS INSPIRED BEAUTY | ACADEMY AWARDS | RED CARPET BEAUTY | SKINCARE BY ALANAGet Jennifer Aniston’s Luscious Locks – Jen has long been known for her gorgeous hair, and this year’s Oscars were no exception. She rocked her classic, voluminous, long-and-layered look with a gorgeous nude-colored dress that truly popped on the red carpet. So, how can you get Jen’s luscious locks? I recreated the look using Kenra’s Thickening Spray, an amazing product that increases hair thickness up to 96% after three applications, and protects against humidity and frizz. Simply apply evenly to damn hair and style as desired! I got the look by giving my hair a simply blow dry.

REESE WITHERSPOON | NUDE LIP| OSCARS INSPIRED BEAUTY | ACADEMY AWARDS | RED CARPET BEAUTY | SKINCARE BY ALANAGet Reese Witherspoon’s Flawless Nude Lip – While others were rocking statement lips on the red carpet, Reese Witherspoon kept it simple, chic, and beautiful with a perfect nude pout. This inspired me to reach for my Youngblood Lipstick in brown sugar to recreate the look! It is so important to remember that everyone will naturally need to find their own, unique nude shade, as skin tones and undertones vary! I am a huge fan of Youngblood’s Lipsticks in particular because they offer an amazing array of colors that infuse the lips with nourishing moisture and antioxidants.

GLO MINERALS ALLOY EYES PALETTE | LUPITA NYONG'O  OSCARS INSPIRED BEAUTY | ACADEMY AWARDS | RED CARPET BEAUTY | SKINCARE BY ALANAGet Lupita Nyong’o’s Metallic Smokey Eyes I could go on and on about how gorgeous Lupita looked on the Red Carpet! Her skin is flawless. But when it came to the Oscars this year, Lupita completely dazzled with her metallic smoky eye look! Feeling inspired, I reached for my Glo Minerals Alloy Eyes Collection to recreate the look, and the results were beautiful!

HYDROPEPTIDE PLUMP & PEEL DUO | JENNIFER LOPEZ | JLO  OSCARS INSPIRED BEAUTY | ACADEMY AWARDS | RED CARPET BEAUTY | SKINCARE BY ALANA

Get Jenifer Lopez’s Glowing Skin – Seriously, is JLo ever NOT glowing?! Jennifer hit the red carpet with radiant skin and a soft makeup look that had photographers swarming. So, how can you get a red-carpet ready glow? I love, love, love HydroPeptide’s Anti-Wrinkle Polish & Plump Peel for achieving spa-like results from the comfort of my home. This product duo sloughs away dead skin with ease and rejuvenates the skin for a look that is glowing and radiant.

GWYNETH PALTROW | COLORESCIENCE ILLUMINATING SERUM  OSCARS INSPIRED BEAUTY | ACADEMY AWARDS | RED CARPET BEAUTY | SKINCARE BY ALANAGet Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fresh Dewy Skin – Gwyneth was a vision on the red carpet with her fresh, dewy skin and beautiful soft pink dress. While much of Miss Paltrow’s skin success is achieved through healthy dieting and a fabulous skin care regimen, you can achieve her gorgeous red-carpet glow with a skin illuminator. I am a huge fan of Colorescience’s Illuminating Serum, which delivers a gorgeous glow while nourishing the skin with patented-peptides, powerful antioxidants, and hydrating hyaluronic acid to the skin.

SUPERSMILE QUICKEE INSTANT WHITENING POLISH | MERYL STREEP |  OSCARS INSPIRED BEAUTY | ACADEMY AWARDS | RED CARPET BEAUTY | SKINCARE BY ALANAGet Meryl Streep’s Luminous Smile – I am a long time fan of Meryl and have always envied her bright smile. She hit this year’s red carpet in an amazing black-ad-white skirt suit ensemble, and beautiful white smile to match. How can you get Meryl’s luminous smile? I am a huge fan of SuperSmile’s Quickee Instant Whitening Polish, and have enjoyed carrying it on-hand with me for the last few years. This product works as an instant stain remover to whiten teeth and freshen breath without brushing or rinsing.
