16 Easy Beauty Hacks Which Will Give You a Hollywood Glow-up

 You must have seen photos of Hollywood stars from their awkward teenage days or their first auctions. These pictures may have you questioning about their current glow-ups. If you think Margot Robbie or Anne Hathaway always looked like they do know you're sorely mistaken. So what does a Hollywood beauty routine entail?

If you think being in front of the camera involves insanely expensive treatments and extensive hours of facials that not exactly right. Yes Hollywood does involve expert treatments, spas and beauty regimens. But the biggest names in the industry have revealed that the most important thing about maintaining one's youthfulness is sticking to their individual beauty regimen. So what are the beauty habits which can give you a Hollywood glow-up?

Squeeze masks

Squeeze masks are a must if you want to retain the agelessness in your looks. From Jennifer Lopez to all the Kardashians everybody loves squeeze masks because they are so easy to use and provide instant results. In fact, minutes after you take off the mask you'll notice your skin feels more elastic. Try opting for collagen-induced masks as collagen is an essential element to the anti-ageing process.

 You can't have pores

Visible pores are a strict no-no in the world of showbiz. In fact, the first thing any model or actress is told by her makeup guru is that having pores are a really bad look. It's not exactly like acne because Hollywood has started being more forgiving towards acne and breakouts. In fact, names like Kendall Jenner and a number of other supermodels are even sporting acne on the red carpet.
 Pores are a sign of a laziness as the basis of any successful makeup regimen is dealing with pores. And usually, actresses are very careful about their skin. But getting rid of pores does not involve a high-profile makeup routine. There's a very simple homemade way to take care of pores. Just mix some milk, honey, and cinnamon and apply to your face thrice every week.

 The correct moisturiser

Moisturising is the key to a great skin. Though most people just get hold of a random moisturiser and use it, that's not the solution. Not every moisturiser is the same and picking up the right one is very important so that your skin type gets the correct treatment. Water-based moisturisers are the best for oily skin as they fix acne. For dry skin try opting for moisturiser with beeswax.

 Highlighter must-dos

A highlighter is a red-carpet must-have. The thing about the highlighter is that most people don't know how to moderate it. The highlighter is used to catch the light of the cameras to draw attention to your best features. Which is why you only need to apply it to areas which you think need attention. Try to learn how highlighters or bronzers work. Have a look at some of the red carpet tutorials and you will see how you can use highlighter to dramatise your look.

 Removing makeup

One of the biggest beauty blunders is going to bed with makeup on. You will never realise how extensively makeup harms the skin overnight. Most of our makeup essentials have toxic chemicals. You can guess what happens when you leave those for 7-8 hours. All celebrities insist that everyone who wants a good healthy skin must remove makeup immediately after they are home. On days you are too tired just take a damp tissue and remove the base makeup and wash your face.

 Face oils

Face oils are just as relevant now as they were centuries ago. The main purpose of a face oil is to hydrate your skin and get rid of dry cells. Make sure you apply face oil at least once a day and keep it on for 15 minutes. Most supermodels like Bella Hadid and Stella Maxwell have revealed that they never leave home without their face oils.

 Overnight treatments

A night cream or an anti-ageing serum isn't enough anymore. Our skin has to face pollution, dust, sun rays and other germs which affect the skin in the most brutal way possible. Since it's not possible for any of us to spend hours on our skin care routine you can invest in a good overnight product. So that our face retains its freshness and plumps itself when we are asleep. Opt for an overnight hydrating mask or an overnight serum and make it a habit to put it on before bed.

 The good base

The red carpet glam is all about catching the light and since the camera hides nothing a botched makeup job can really ruin your night. The first rule to a good glow-up is a steady and even base. Make sure it's compatible with your skin tone and you have used the right amount of foundation so that it doesn't come out cakey or uneven.

 Don't choose contouring

Makeup experts always advised against countering unless you're absolutely sure about what you're doing. If you don't have a makeup artiste helping you or don't really understand the contouring palettes, it's always best to ditch contouring altogether. Some of the biggest makeup artists like Bobbi Brown swear off contouring. Also, most people don't understand that contouring doesn't always amp up a look. Sometimes the key is to look natural.

 Night makeup and day makeup

Don't try to pull off a black smokey eye for a spring brunch or use too much glitter for a day event. Most people don't understand that day makeup is all about the palette and one must understand what goes with their skin tone. Evening makeup gives you a lot of room to experiment. Try out pop colours or bold lipsticks or even contouring. But if you want to make an impression in your day event, stick to what you know.

 The 5-minute makeup

Always have a quick makeup routine as your backup plan if you don't have time to sit and do your face makeup for 30 minutes. Most people just use some makeup essentials for their 5-minute glow up when they are running late for work and this often comes in handy. If you don't have a lot of time and still need to do makeup, just wash and moisturise your face. Apply sunscreen and foundation and brush some powder and blush with a brush. Use very little kohl on your eyes and dab some lip gloss and you're good to go.

 What the expert says

“Daytime red carpet makeup needs to be less. For a nighttime red carpet with heavy lighting, it’s easy to get a blank face. You have to play up the highlight and contour to add dimension,” says celebrity makeup artist Hrush Achemyan.

 You need time

Experts also agree that if you’re serious about a statement glow-up, give yourself time to prep the face. Let the face breathe for a few minutes after cleansing, before you can apply makeup. This helps your look as your skin looks fresh and natural.

 Only one statement

All makeup gurus agree that your makeup looks, be it for a red carpet or a party, should only have one point of focus. What they mean is if you’re going for a dramatic eye, ditch the bold lipstick. If you really want a pop-up lip colour, go easy on the eyes, by just applying some mascara and eyeliner.

 The setting spray

The best-kept red carpet secret is the makeup setting spray. Especially if compact or powders are not your thing, you must try the setting spray. It keeps your makeup intact for hours and makes sure your base stays perfect and your eye makeup doesn’t smudge.

 Vaseline on your breasts

You've probably noticed that Hollywood stars are very careful about their assets. Applying Vaseline on your breasts can actually help you increase their size and several stars have said that they follow this trick. Although you cannot expect immediate results, you will notice the change in a few weeks.
