Achieving the Emma Roberts Red Carpet Oscar look 2017.

Emma Roberts Vintage Armani dress, hair and make-up certainly won my vote at the Oscars 2017. Whether you’re getting married or going to a very special event, you’ll need the right make-up products to get you started.

It all starts with the foundation base which needs to be long wearing and long lasting. These are my recommendations that I’ve used myself.

Estee Lauder’s Double Wear Maximum Cover foundation offers longevity and a velvet/matte finish, there’s a lighter version Double Wear Light Stay in Place Make-up SPF10.  For a Liquid photo finish   SmashBox Studio Skin 15 hour Wear Hydrating Foundation, and lastly for a natural healthy translucent effect (old favourite,)  Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick. ( This one is oil based)

Some of my brow recommendations include Benefit Brow collection, Body Shop, and Eylure.

For the eyes you’ll need some real definition for the camera. False lashes are the easiest way to create this effect. These are some of the affordable brands that are easy to apply and wear, Ardell  (including Press On Lash), Kiss, Eylure.  I’m also a big fan of long wear gel eyeliners and most of the brands offer this type of product. Here’s a few brands depending on your budget,  Lauder, Body Shop, MAC, Maybelline, Bobbi Brown.

The quickest and most effective way of using colour on the cheeks and eyes is to use products that will cover both.  Try the  Smashbox LA Nights Blush & Highlight Palette, Origins Pinch your cheeks, Nude by Nature Bonzing Compacts. they will all do the trick and save you money on eye shadows.

For the rich velvet lipstick finish these would certianly be on my wish list, Lipstick Queen’s Red Sinner, Boujois Rouge Velvet Lipstick Red, Smashbox Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick , Dior’s Satin and Matte Finish.

To finish your look fully you will need to choose hair styling products that will smooth and mold the hair into place. Try  72 Hair Blow Dry Cream  it’s a styling hair cream that will suit all hair types and available nationwide.  Percy & Reed Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm  have also had rave reviews. Finally to set your hair gently into place electirc’s  C7e.Spray.  is a wonder product. I’ve used this on many occasions and it doesn’t leave a sticky residue on the hair and very easy to brush out.

Bradley_151126_8020Through my work i’ve used many different types and makes of Lashes.  From high glam, advertizing, portraits and drag artists. Seems they never go out of fashion. Just think back in relation to Hollywood films with leading ladies like Clara Bow in the 20’s and Gene Harlow in the 30’s ( one of the first blonds in movies) they wore false lashes to accentuate their eyes on film to lure and engage the viewer.  Ardell invited me to celebrate 45 years at the Langham Hotel in central London with a glamorous event to show off the new Press On Lashes and natural styles. Certainly Oscar Winners.
