How To Achieve Red Carpet Glow In Your Next Party
You don’t need to be on the red carpet to get the “red carpet glow. You can easily get “the glow” at your next party by following the tips of the world’s top beauty experts. How? Celebrities hire them and they reveal their secrets to us. How lucky we are! Here are what you need to do pre and on the day of the event for dewy and flawless skin.
Before we elaborate, you need to know that the key to the red carpet glow is prepping the skin right.
- Lymphatic Drainage Massage: Lymphatic drainage can help reduce residual puffiness for a more sculpted effect.
- Light Chemical Peel: This procedure is done by applying a chemical solution to the skin to remove the top layers so smoother layers can come to the surface. A light chemical peel is used to treat fine wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone, and dryness. You might have a light peel every two to five weeks.
- Microcurrent: Think: gym workout for your face. Micro-current stimulates your facial muscles for a natural lift giving you a more youthful and glowing look.
- Oxygen Therapy: The non-medical procedure can help even skin tone, hydrate skin, add radiance, reduce fine lines, and calm acne.
- Extractions: If needed, it is recommended to do such treatments ahead of your event. Avoid them a week before your party to avoid irritating skin.
- LED Light Facial: Great for brightening the skin and improving its conditions without irritation.
- Things to Avoid: Avoid any minimally invasive treatments, like laser or micro-needling, trying new products, or drinking alcohol the week of. As drinking will make you puffy, it’s bad for your collagen, and it creates a lot of dehydration in the skin.
The Day Of The Event
- Cleanse: Start your routine with a salicylic acid-infused cleanser to remove the dirt and build-ups.
- Exfoliate: On the day of your event, stick to gentle exfoliants like chemical or physical exfoliating masks and avoid anything harsh.
- Apply a Sheet Mask: As we said, well-hydrated skin creates the best base for makeup. A sheet mask can give the needed soothing hydration effect.
- De-Puff With a Sculpting Tool: The Magic Glow Wand is a great tool to de-puff and reduce redness. You could also use it to massage your mask to absorb the ingredients more effectively.
- Apply Serum: An oil-based serum locks in moisture for smooth, supple skin.
- The Mixing Hack: When applying makeup, instead of using foundation alone, mix it with a skin tint. This hack is also super useful if you’re struggling to find the right shade of foundation for your skin. Don’t use too much product and apply your mix with a damp beauty blender.
- The Glazed Effect: A light highlight is a must at this point to double the effect and build dimension. Opt for a balm formula and apply it to the high points.
- Add Last-Minute Texturizing Spray: Before you walk into an event, flip your hair upside down, then spray with a texturizer and give it a good shake. If your hair is curly, separate the curls using your hands and give it a good flip.
