Reel Beauty: Red-Carpet Inspiration
By Shelley Levitt
Reel beauty: Red carpet inspiration. Nobody does gorgeous better than movie stars on the red carpet. And with the biggest movies of the year making their debut in November and December, some of our favorite stars are showing off new hairstyles and holiday-ready glam makeup. And just in case you don’t have a team of groomers helping you get beautiful, we’ve offered some tips on how to make Jennifer, Sandra, Elizabeth, Rachel and Regina’s looks your own.
Elizabeth Banks showed off a textured updo at the New York premiere of Hunger Games: Catching Fire. With a bold orange lip, full brows and flawless skin, it was a strong, sexy and feminine look. “We chose to pull all the hair back and get it up and out of the way to bring more attention to the strong lip color and killer Jenny Packham pantsuit,” said her hairstylist Matthew Monzon. The key to this hairstyle: a texturizing cream and a strong hairspray.
Jennifer Lawrence, on the red carpet in Los Angeles, wore a show-stopping sheer Dior gown. Her new pixie was the perfect complement to the daring look, and every bit as sexy as cascading curls. To give a short do some edgy glamour, you’ll want to apply a defining styling product, like a texturizing sculpting wax. Jennifer also demonstrates that you can do both a strong lip and a smoky eye, especially when your hairstyle is simple and unfussy.
