With award season in full swing, we can’t take our eyes off this year’s red carpet looks and discover the biggest beauty secrets of flawless-looking A-listers. Being an ambassador for fresh and glowing skin, Swedish beauty tech brand Foreo has scouted the best tips and tricks to get red carpet ready.
Whether you’re going for a fresh, natural vibe, or if you want to glam it up and shine like a star, the secret behind every Oscar-perfect look is having the skin of a goddess. Unlike celebs, normal, everyday women don’t have hours to spend preparing for a big event so here’s how to hack the Hollywood look from the comfort of your own bathroom.
Put Your Best Face Forward
Flawless make-up starts with a great base which can be easily achieved with a good cleansing routine. You don’t want to over-exfoliate your skin ahead of an important event as this can lead to redness and irritation so it’s best to use something gentle in texture, but strong in the end result. Foreo’s Micro-Foam Cleanser is a creamy cleanser that transforms into delicate micro-bubbles that lift away impurities from deep within pores to gently purify the skin. Formulated with skin-replenishing amino acids and vitamin E to help retain moisture, the skin is left soft and healthy-looking. For best results, use the Luna 3, Foreo’s iconic facial brush (and Chrissy Teigen’s secret to glowing skin) with its one of a kind T-sonic pulsations and silicone bristles – strong enough to make dead skin cells a thing of past, yet gentle enough to get that baby soft skin without irritation. Celebrities love the Luna range and the UFO was featured on Raya Abirached’s Instagram story as one of her favourites products while preparing for the Oscars.
The Spa Experience
After cleansing, treat yourself to a relaxing at-home facial using the Foreo UFO device. This revolutionary smart masking treatment reveals radiant skin in just 90 seconds so you can spend more time deciding what to wear for your special event. The UFO works hand in hand with the UFO activated sheet masks and evenly distributes the formulas across every area of the face while various functions allow active ingredients to penetrate more deeply for superior results. The UFO is something of an A-lister itself having made its debut on the Runways at London and New York Fashion Weeks with Victoria Beckham.
Hair So Big, It’s Full of Secrets
Last but not least, now the skin is flawless – time to manage the mane. Dry your hair as preferred and use a curling iron to get the Hollywood waves. For a time-saving hack, tie your hair up and curl the entire ponytail, when you take it down you will have a full head of soft curls. Or a straightening tool to get that sleek star look. Use a heat protection spray and finish with some hairspray to set your look in place.
Foreo is available in-store at Sephora across the Middle East, as well as Sephora online and namshi.com.
