Achieving the Emma Roberts Red Carpet Oscar look 2017.

emma-roberst

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.

Think I’ve used so many different types of hair gadgets over the years and each of them bring their usefulness and style to the hair. I have the straightest hair that was ever invented and was interested to see if my hair would curl easily after watching hairdresser Lucie King  use the 3-in-1 Hair Hero. Well i can say it absolutely does and lasted two days!  So if you’re needing a straighter for curly or afro hair, need some waves or curls then this is the perfect hair styling accessory.  These images were taken in the penthouse suite at the Sanderson Hotel and Binky Felstead Made in Chelsea star having her hair lightly curled endorsing #easilockshairhero.  Have a look at the companies profile easilocks.com hairdressing brushes and real hair extensions.
