How Celebrities Do Airport Style

The prospect of traveling somewhere new is always exciting. Then there’s the reality of moving through an airport to realize that airports are actually in no way exciting, but rather uncomfortable instead. It’s cold, you have to take your shoes off, people are likely going to be touching you and rummaging through your things. Then comes the actual plane ride where you’ll be sitting in an uncomfortable seat with little leg room for a few hours surrounded by complete strangers.

All in all, airports put a little dent into the fun of travel, but face it in style with an outfit that will keep you cozy, comfortable, and chic as you head through the airport gates on your way to your destination.

Comfortable Cardigan
Wearing a loose-fitting coat or knitted cardigan with pockets allows you to keep your wallet, passport, and travel documents in an easy-to-access spot while moving through the airport. A cozy cardigan can also do double duty as a blanket or pillow in case you need to warm up or get comfy on the plane ride.

Loose Fitting T-shirt
Temperatures at airports and on planes have a tendency to fluctuate. Layering is key when traveling, and your base layer should always start with a loose t-shirt. A cozy, grey, worn in a t-shirt is comfortable on its own and is light enough that you can still add layers without getting too hot.

Dark Sunglasses
If you tend to sleep on airplanes and wake up with red eyes, having a pair of dark sunglasses with you when you get off your flight is a good idea. As soon as you hear the announcement that the plane is landing, get your sunglasses on before you are exited out into the glare of the airport terminal’s fluorescent lights. Your eyes will thank you!

Your Comfiest Jeans
Put on your softest pair of beloved jeans when catching your next flight to ensure you stay warm, even on the most frigid flight. Jeans are the best thing to wear to the airport mainly because airports and planes are typically quite cold, but jeans are also breathable enough that if you land somewhere warm, you shouldn’t be too uncomfortable in them if you need to wait to change your outfit.

An Oversized Scarf
I always travel with a large, oversized scarf that offers extra warmth if my plane ride suddenly cools down. An oversized scarf can offer a great way to hide if you want some privacy while sleeping by pulling it up around your head. A balled up scarf can also make a great pillow, and blanket when you need it.

Comfortable Flat Shoes
Shoes are the most important item to consider to maximize your airport comfort. Unless you are traveling for work, wear a flat shoe so you can move through the airport quickly while carrying your luggage. Converse shoes are great because they match everything in your wardrobe and are small enough you can throw them in your carry on if you need to switch shoes quickly once you land.

How to Pose for Pictures and ALWAYS Look Good

Some celebrities get ‘caught’ being normal all the time. Makeup-less, sweatpants-wearing, just back from the gym sweaty people. But other celebrities (Kendall Jenner for example) NEVER seem to take a bad photo. How is this possible? Looking good in front of a camera is all about confidence. Practice posing in front of a mirror at home. If you think it looks good, it probably does. Perhaps you’re one of those girls who is so photogenic that you can sneeze and still look like an America’s Next Top Model winner, but for the rest of us, we need some h-e-l-p when it comes to giving good face for the camera. Whether you’re fantasizing about an upcoming event or you’re just concerned with looking great when you go out this weekend, here are some of the tricks of the trade to look your best when a photographer counts to three.

1. Tyra taught it best — “smize” and you’ll immediately look better in pictures. There’s nothing worse than being dead behind your eyes.

2. Relax, breathe and (dare I say) have a little fun! No one likes a wet blanket, and being lively during a photo shoot will only result in amazing pictures.

3. Loosen up. Unless you’re a professional model, odds are that most of the photos you find yourself in are fun, casual shots with friends. As much you think “posing” for these types of pictures will make you look better, the fact remains that loosing up and having a little fun will almost always make for a more flattering snap. Since you’re not trying as hard, there will be less room for error.

4.Twist your body and position your arms. Ah, the old red carpet trick: Position your body 45 degrees and put the arm closest to the camera on your hip. Then plant one foot slightly in front of the other, point your toe to the camera and place your weight on your back leg.
Ever wonder why every celebrity poses with her camera-facing arm on her hip? It’s because that particular move ensures that her upper arm isn’t smooshed against her body making it look flattened (read: larger.) If you find the hand-on-hip pose to be a bit forced, try holding your arms out from your sides ever so slightly.

5. Don’t follow the group. The key to a stellar group shot? Not all doing the same pose. Not only is that hokey (hello, standing in height order on prom night) but everyone is shaped differently, so the viewer’s eye will naturally gravitate to who looks best in the pose, not the picture. Instead, be sure to stand comfortably without mimicking the people directly next to you.

6. Slightly lower your front shoulder to elongate your neck and create more dramatic angles.

7. Stick out your chin just a little bit to avoid the double chin.

8. Cast your eyes just above where the camera’s lens is. Your eyes will appear larger by being more open, and you’ll look awake and full of energy.

9. Don’t face the camera straight on. Posing at a slight angle (45 degrees is best) will instantly slim your figure.

10. Don’t go overboard on color, this means too much makeup, tanning, or hair dying. The best rule of thumb is to blend and be subtle, otherwise you end up looking like a rainbow of disaster.

Photo Taking Tricks Celebrities Use in Every Picture

how kardashians take perfect photos

We all know how great celebrities look in highly edited photo shoots, but the real test is how good they look on the day to day candids and on their social media. A picture is worth a thousand likes and a snapshot is never just a snapshot.

Some celebrities get ‘caught’ being normal all the time. Makeup-less, sweatpants-wearing, just back from the gym sweaty people. But other celebrities (Karlie Kloss for example) NEVER seem to take a bad photo. How is this possible?

Looking good in front of a camera is all about confidence. Practice posing in front of a mirror at home. If you think it looks good, it probably does. Perhaps you’re one of those girls who is so photogenic that you can sneeze and still look like an America’s Next Top Model winner, but for the rest of us, we need some h-e-l-p when it comes to giving good face for the camera.

1. Tyra taught it best — “smize” and you’ll immediately look better in pictures. There’s nothing worse than being dead behind your eyes.

2. Relax, breathe and (dare we say) have a little fun! No one likes a wet blanket, and being lively during a photo shoot will only result in amazing pictures.

3.  When you are taking a photo or selfie, always be aware of the lights around you. Position yourself away from the natural lighting of the room. Alos, know your best angles. Know which side you are wanting to shoot from. Supermodel Tip:  When taking a selfie in the mirror  angle the camera down so that your waist looks smaller.

4. Use eye drops to clear up any redness or tired looking eyes. The eyes are the windows to the soul, after all, so if they look great you’re sure to kill it in pictures. Celebrities can’t get enough of THESE eye drops that significantly reduce redness to help eyes appear whiter, brighter, and more radiant.

5. Just before taking pictures, pinch the apples of your cheeks to get a natural, rosy glow.

6. Slightly lower your front shoulder to elongate your neck and create more dramatic angles.

7. Stick out your chin just a little bit to avoid the double chin.

8. Cast your eyes just above where the camera’s lens is. Your eyes will appear larger by being more open, and you’ll look awake and full of energy.

Laura Mercier just announced the launch of a foundation that allegedly looks perfect in photos and under every kind of lighting situation, no less—excited yet!?! The new Laura Mercier Flawless Lumière Radiance-Perfecting Foundation ($48)—a medium- to full-coverage liquid formula that’s expertly concocted with an exotic grouping of ingredients (think “super crystal clear pearl,” vitamin C, and “silver ear mushroom extract”) to deliver weightless yet long-wear luminosity and hydration to even the dullest and most dehydrated of complexions.

Final thoughts:  The best tip is to do what every celebrity does: let the real you shine through and the camera will capture your own unique vibe and beauty!

Kate Hudson Uses Creme de La Mer Moisturizer

1. Start with super hydrated skin. Use a non greasy, lightweight moisturizer like THIS ONE that is Kate Hudson’s favorite. It will plump up your skin and keep it really hydrated. Hyaluronic Acid Serum works well under makeup. Not only does it plump skin, but will continue to pull moisture from the air and hydrate skin all day.

2. Next up: foundation and concealer. Wear a matte finish foundation so your face doesn’t look oily under the hot lights or camera flashes. THIS is the foundation Kendall Jenner wears daily. For the most part, you are probably going to want more of a fuller coverage foundation, along with using concealer.

3. Finishing powder. Tom Ford’s is a versatile, translucent pressed finishing powder to set makeup, reduce shine, and mattify skin. This powder is designed to be used with high-definition camera technology but is also perfect for everyday wear.

4. Apply more makeup than you wear on a daily basis, as cameras wash out 35% color. This means you’ll probably need to apply more blush, lips, and brows than you think you need. Take a selfie with your phone to make sure your makeup stands out. If your makeup looks a bit too dramatic for every day, then it’s perfect for the camera.

5. Skip the shimmer, metallic and glitter. These types of products can reflect light too much, or make your skin look really shiny. If you use any luminizing products, make sure it’s really subtle, and only highlight your features a little. Add a subtle luminzer in the inner corners of the eyes, top of the cheekbones, and cupid’s bow.

6. Define your eyes. To get eyes that pop in photos, make sure you use eyeliner on the top of your lashes, and on the bottom lashes too, or at least define under neath with a medium tone eyeshadow. Contour the crease of your eye socket with a medium toned shadow, and blend out the edges really well with a large fluffy eye shadow brush. And don’t forget lots of mascara, THIS ONE is a celebrity favorite, at least 2 coats.

7. If it’s going to be a long day, use a setting spray to make your makeup last through the last photo. You can also use a translucent powder and blotting papers for touch ups for shine.
