Hottest Celeb Red Carpet Legs... Who's Got It?

Tricks To Achieve Red Carpet Ready Legs

Ever wondered how those celebrities manage to get their legs looking so shimmery and sexy on the red carpet? well, I have got a few tricks you can experiment on in order to achieve a wow factor effect on those pair of legs.

-Moisturising isn't enough, you can use liquid makeup on top of a well moisturized leg.
-There are shimmer lotions/creams which add moisture to your skin while giving your skin a brilliant glow. Use shimmery bronzer for lighter skin and light shimmers for darker skin.
-Another simple way is the use of body oils and petrolatum(e.g. vaseline) on top of well moisturized legs.
-If you want a non-greasy solution, you can use shimmer powders instead of the lotions and creams. Body or all-over shimmer powders can come in a range of colors, so choose one that will flatter your skin tone.

Now, lets have a look at some of our favourite red carpet legs...who's got the hawttest pair of legs?

Colourblock Or Colour Riot?

With the following tips in mind, you can never go wrong with colour blocking:

  • Do not be shy to experiment. Colour blocking is for the bold and daring!

  •  Do not combine more than four colours. Combination of more than 4 colours = Colour Riot!

  •  Choose what you want to colour block and keep the rest of your look simple.

  • Do not ever combine two colour blocked items. That's a no no!!

The Jews Of Nigeria?

Documentary by New Yorker Jeff Lieberman 

About the Documentary:
RE-EMERGING: The Jews of Nigeria is a journey into the heart of Igboland and into the lives and
culture of the Igbo people. The film introduces the world to the many synagogues that dot the land, and a handful of passionate, committed, and diverse characters -- each striving to fulfill their historical legacy with few resources and unbeknownst to most of the world. Individual stories are woven together with key facets of history, tracing the Igbo from Biblical times up to the brutal 1960s Biafran War, which killed over 1 million Igbo. A wide range of American academics help detail this history, including shedding new light on the Igbo origins of thousands of slaves captured during the Atlantic Slave Trade and brought to American shores. The film delves into this history and travels to the southeast coast of Georgia, where locals still speak of the Igbo spirit alive and well at a riverbed called Ibo Landing.

Being an Igbo, I find this quite interesting and i'm looking forward to watching the full documentary.

Creating The Perfect Eyebrows

Tips For Perfect Brows

When shaped properly, eyebrows open up a woman's face and accentuate her natural beauty, but when they are incorrectly shaped, the outcome can be disastrous.
Here are some simple steps which I have culled from Hello! Online, to help get a perfect brow shape.

Step 1: Measure
To measure the position of the brow correctly, hold the handle of a brush along the edge of the nose up to the inner corner of the eye — this is where the brow should start. Keep the brush on the side of the nose and rotate it to the outer edge of the eye — that is the position where the brow should end.

Step 2: Apply
Fill in the brow shape using Eye Brow Cake in your desired colour and an angled eyebrow brush. Start by drawing a line at the base of the hairs, starting from the inner eye up to the arch of the brow. Then apply a soft parallel line above the brow, and fill in between. Repeat the process from the arch outwards to the point you wish the brow to end.

With any product that is left on the brush, gently brush it through the front of the brow to create a softer, more natural look.

Step 3: Highlight and define
Create a natural highlight by applying concealer underneath the brow. Apply with an angled eyebrow brush beneath the base of the brow, pulling down to the outer edge of the eyelid to sharpen the brow edge. If desired, soften the concealer using a blending brush.
