Getting Gold Carpet Glam With Motions

Getting Gold Carpet Glam With  Motions

Last week I had the opportunity to get glammed up with Motions Haircare for the Atlanta premiere of Think Like A Man Too. It was the most amazing experience. The lights, the camera, the action and all the celebs on the red carpet, I had a great time!
During the day, the glam squad Moe (Hair) and Alicia (Makeup) stopped by to give me some fearless style. This was my first time getting this glammed up for an event but I was super excited.

Hair

After selecting my dress, I decided I wanted a braided look. Moe came up with some ideas and decided to give me big wand curls and incorporated a braid into the style. To recreate this look, use the steps below:

  1. Using a large wand, curl 2 inch wefts of hair away from the face and set the curl with Motions Light Hold Working Spritz
  2. When the entire head is curled, apply a bit of the Motions Shine Enhancing Pomade to edges and brush it slightly to create frizz free, smooth hair
  3. Next, gather 75% of the hair, leaving out a small portion around the face. Starting at the back of the head, braid the large section of hair to the side so braid falls over shoulder. Secure with a clear rubber band and gently pull on small sections of the braid to create a “messy” look
  4. To finish, wrap the face-framing section of hair loosely around the braid and secure with bobby pins. Set the look with Motions Hold & Shine Styling Spray

Makeup

After makeup artist Alicia saw the full head-to-toe look, she thought a bronze smokey eye would be great for me. She airbrushed my makeup on. This was my first time getting airbrushed and I loved the results. Instead of the typical red lip, Alicia gave me a bold pink lip that was perfect for the night!

 The Dress

Now it was time for me to put on the dress! I had chosen a  dainty, feminine Marchesa Notte dress, courtesy of Rent the Runway and Motions.
