How To Achieve The Hollywood Look Without Going Broke
No better you than the you that you are,
No better time for your shine, you're a star.
-Alessia Cara

It's fascinating how celebrities look so flawless and polished on the red carpet. So perfect it's as though the gods and goddesses decided to join the mortals to awaken envy. Getting that glam though could rob you of your life savings. So how to achieve the Hollywood look without going broke?

Find a lamp with a genie and wish for it? Find a fairy godmother? Or join reality shows that gives you a makeover? You can, but then you may have to wait forever.

I've got rather doable suggestions.

How To Achieve The Hollywood Look

Without Going Broke

Drink lots of water

Why you ask? Most celebrities---and beauty and health experts say, the secret to a glowing skin is drinking water. Lots and lots of it. Water cleanses our system from toxins so it clears the skin. Water helps deliver the nutrients throughout our body. Water is a gift. Its power is underestimated and overlooked, but it's vital if you want to achieve the Hollywood look.

Learn the ways

Some stylists to the stars have been generous enough to share their secrets. Learn how to do your favorite celebrity's hair and makeup. Learn how to put an outfit together that will achieve a look that you want. The internet is a world of endless learning at your fingertips. Go utilize it.

Fake it

Fake it. But in a good way because nobody likes a fraud. Find a cheaper alternative. For example, if you can't get famous celeb's hairstyle, get an extension. Or a wig. You'll be surprised at how easy it is to change your looks and still look natural with hair extensions and wigs.

There are Tape in Hair Extensions that will help you achieve the Hollywood look without going broke. 

Or create your own look that even the stars would envy.

Be confident

Hey, it's not really about the price tag. It's about how you carry yourself. Most importantly, don't wish and pretend that you're a Hollywood star. Remember that you are a star! You're not here on earth to suffer and settle. You're a star in your own way. You have a gift that only you can offer. No celebrity can take that away from you.

Remember the lyrics from Scars to Your Beautiful by Alessia Cara:

No better you than the you that you are
No better life than the life we're living
No better time for your shine, you're a star
Oh, you're beautiful, oh, you're beautiful

  20. Hi, Lux!

    The key principle here is what's inside you. What's inside radiates outward for all to see, hear and feel. Adopt good fitness and grooming habits. "Stay in school" all your life, which means never stop learning. Preparedness builds confidence. Believe in yourself. Present to the world the best version of yourself that you can be. Drink plenty of water and avoid alcoholic beverages and soft drinks. Use articles like this one to learn tips on how to look your best on a budget. A few tasteful accessories enhance a basic outfit and give you a more completed, elegant look. Sit, stand, walk, speak and even breathe with confidence - like a winner - and others will treat you as one.

    Have a great weekend, dear friend Lux!

  21. No hope for me, gone case. Hehehehehehe!!!!

  22. Interesting article. I like the drinking water part.

  25. Lovely post dear! Have a great weekend! xx

  26. Nice! Drinking more water is a constant challenge for me, yet I feel guilty saying that. We're so lucky to have easy access to clean water. No excuses. =)
    Thanks for the tips, Lux.

  27. Shine away with plenty of water sure works indeed

  28. Lovely post.

  35. Water, huh? You know, most people should really be drinking a lot more water anyway. Maybe this is a good way to encourage them.

  36. Great tips, I should work more on my confidence ^^

  37. Interesting post, great tips

  38. Confidence truly is key, and thanks for the reminder to drink more water - it can have such positive effects on our skin! I find makeup is always much easier to apply when skin is naturally glowing too :) Have a lovely week ahead..

  39. Dear Lux, You have wonderful suggestions and thank you for sharing them!

  40. Great article and advice, Lux! Love the photos and videos :)

  41. Many people say if you have confidence you're already halfway to beauty, and I believe that. And water is so good for everything - for your skin, for you body, for your happiness and clarity of mind. It's so powerful!

  42. Nice read! Haha! True enough, of course it doesn't have to be costly but when faking it, don't be a fraud too hehe. Cool tips dear!
