As Seen On TV: The Hottest Celebrity Beauty Trends this Red Carpet Season
With summer making a welcome approach, it’s time to change up your look for the warmer months and introduce something new into your beauty repertoire. And where better to get your latest beauty inspiration from, than the trend-setting starlets on the Red Carpet?
From supermodels Gigi Hadid and Miranda Kerr to our favourite songstresses Beyonce and Zendaya, we’ve seen some stunning hair and makeup trends this Red Carpet season – here’s our roundup of the best of the best, and all the tips and tricks you need to know to bring them to life at home!
#1: Nicole Richie – Monochrome Metallic
The reigning queen of style Nicole Richie shimmered and shone her way through La Mer’s 50th Anniversary celebration earlier this month, giving lift and body to a monochrome makeup palatte with a beautifully sparkly finish.
Metallic copper eye shadow and sheer caramel lipstick balance perfectly with her olive skin tone – and that’s the trick here! Choose shades of bronze that complement your skin and blend with your natural colouring to keep with the monochromatic feel.
#2: Miranda Kerr – Bright and Simple
Miranda Kerr rocked this chic and simple look at this month’s InStyle Awards, proving that less certainly is more!
This is a super easy look to recreate – a sky high, silky smooth bun has the effect of giving an instant facelift by drawing attention upwards and making your face look thinner, while bright red lips and gold lids will brighten your complexion and make you look fresh and rejuvenated.
#3: Beyonce – The Side Pony
Just when you thought this season was all about low, carefree hair, Beyonce shows up at the Met Ball and proves everyone wrong! Reminiscent of an I Dream of Jeannie-era, this high side ponytail is smooth and lush for a glamorous look with a hint of fun.
Use a smoother cream to achieve this same sleekness, a curling iron to get the delicate curls at the end, and a dusting of hairspray to keep it all in place.
#4: Selena Gomez – Hair Ribbons
Selena Gomez nails effortless, girly charm with a delicate hair ribbon that looks oh-so-last-minute. A perfect finishing touch to a lazy braid or a messy ponytail, hair ribbons mix Parisian-inspired sweetness with a too-cool-for-school attitude.
To keep your ribbon from sliding off, spray the inside with hairspray before tying it around your hair in a knot or bow.
#5: Zendaya – Glossy Lips
Take a leaf out of Zendaya’s book and go for a look that’s both simple and striking – long, luscious lashes in the blackest black and a swipe of clear gloss for an ultra-sleek, patent finish.
Choose a lengthening mascara and use it on both your top and bottom lashes for maximum drama.
#6: Gigi Hadid – Gothic Chic
Gigi Hadid showed off her darker side earlier this month by stepping out in almost-black lipstick, with a slight tinge of purple. Not one to shy away from changing up her typical California blonde look, her bold, dramatic lip colour of choice is surprisingly versatile and definitely worth trying this season.
If the idea of a black statement lip scares you, try a deep purple or burgundy instead. Just remember to keep your eyes and the rest of your face bare or there’ll be way too much going on!
