The start of the year always heralds red carpet season, and with the big award shows underway, all the looks, from outfits and accessories to makeup and hairdos will be closely scrutinised in a microscopic manner. This is also the time when trends are created, and that goes across the board for beauty looks and outfits, so it's definitely wise to keep a keen eye on the coverage if you're on the lookout for something you can put your own twist on.
TVSN has handpicked some exciting products to help get you into the swing of things, so if you're hoping to exude some of that red carpet glamour, these can get you looking your very best!
The concept behind Doll 10 is interesting - created by a woman, Doris Dalton, who wanted to reclaim her beauty and sense of self after going through therapy for cancer, she set about making a line for those with 10 minutes to spare and wanting to get dolled up. It's a line for, but not exclusive to, those who are looking to be gorgeous with little time to spare. They currently have a limited edition version of the Golden Pearl Body Bronzer, which is a very generously sized compact, made for adding that sunlit glow. For those seeking a bit of extra highlighting, however, there is also the Liquid H2Glo, which is a cream-gel lightlighter designed to hydrate while adding a luminous shine.
Finish off your look with Lip Illusion by Mally, a woman who is also known as Mally Roncal, Beyonce's makeup artist. This is a double-ended lipstick that creates a fuller looking set of lips with a semi-matte lip shade on one side for shading and contouring, as well as a shimmer powder to highlight the lips.
You simply can't leave the house with plain nails when you're headed to something fancy, and with that in mind, Nails Inc, which is a highly reputable and often used brand in my household, has some absolute corkers for decorating the digits! This particular duo is called Fallen Mermaid, which includes 'Mermaid on the Rocks', an electric blue foil shade, and 'Naughty Tails and Sparkly Scale', a pretty, dark platinum flecked with silver.
Nick Chavez, another man who caters to the stars in Beverly Hills, created the Velvet Mesquite Grande Restoring Body Booster to help retain moisture and hydration in the tresses. This will help with giving it body while lending it a silky soft finish - just right for that 'do that needs some oomph while maintaining that 'wants to be touched' look.
Diamonesque is a range of simulated diamond jewellery and the collection ranges widely, from rings to earrings and necklaces. At $29.95, these very affordable Diamonesque Stud Earrings will add that touch of sparkle to complete your outfit.
