From Red Carpet to Real Life

I’ve mentioned it a time or two, but I’ll say it again: I love awards season.  And while the dresses (and shoes and jewels) tend to be the main event, there’s also a ton of inspiration to be drawn from the hair and makeup statements throughout the night.  The fun part is taking a dramatic red carpet beauty look and incorporating it into your everyday routine, so I’m teaming up with CoverGirl, Olay, Pantene, and Secret to bring a little Hollywood glamour into your real life.

At this year’s Golden Globes, Reese Witherspoon was doing her classic, girl-next-door thing that she does so well, and I thought her makeup was so understated and pretty.  Her bronze-y, copper-ish liner seriously brought out her blue eyes, but the star of the show was definitely her flawless skin.  As I get older, I’m paying much closer attention to my skin and the products that I use, and Olay products have become a true ally.  Recently I’ve been religiously using Olay’s Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream, and I can already see a real difference in my skin.  When you feel good about your skin, the rest of your makeup is a breeze.  After a bit of blush, a pinkish-nude lipgloss, and a coppery shadow used with a heavy hand as liner, I finished off the look with CoverGirl’s new Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara.  It’s a two-step mascara that can be layered and layered to add maximum drama.

In the hair department, well, I never met a heat styler I didn’t like, and product overload doesn’t scare me.  Thanks to Pantene’s new Damage Detox Deep Clean Purifying Shampoo, I’m getting the gunk out and working on taming my mane a la Reese.  Final step before heading out?  Secret’s new Destinations Collection in Paris Romantic Rose – smells amazing and lasts forever.  (48 hours is the promise, and I’m a believer.)  To take this look out for dinner with the girls, leather skinnies, an easy tee, and a few gold accessories are all you need.  Which red carpet beauty looks will you be recreating this season?
