Movie Star Chic on the Cheap

From the classics of Monroe and Hepburn, to the Meghan Fox and Jennifer Lawrence lookalikes, the Hollywood Movie style is a true fashion art we all want master.

It’s probably a lot easier with a group of stylists, makeup artists and personal wardrobe keepers around you; choosing the best leggings for your 'haven't even tried’ look, to contouring your feet for a pair of Gucci open top heels. Who even knew contouring feet was necessary?!

Without an entourage of experts, and a hefty pay check, the stylish look of Hollywood movie stars can be difficult to attain.  But, there are plenty of ways to look movie star chic on the cheap!

That's right, step aside Emma Stone, we've got this covered.

Tan

First things first, you'll need that all American glowing tan that anyone who's ever passed through LA or California is gifted with.

This perfect tan gives you a fab base coat for any makeup you'll be doing later. Whether you're opting for sun beds for a gradual build up, or a quick fake tan, be sure to sparkle and glow like Kylie Jenner in her 4am dawn photoshoots. 

Using a fake tan like Benefit’s Hoola Zero Tanlines (around $24) will provide a smooth coverage so you don't have to worry so much about streaks and uneven lines down the back of your legs...Plus, it has the sweetest smell!

Teeth

Nothing says Hollywood Celebrity like a Simon Cowell white toothy smile. There's only one way to get those pearls looking so pristine; teeth whitening. Whilst the stars may be able to afford the highest quality teeth whitening services, an OTC whitening kit can provide that gleam without you emptying your bank account.

Once you've had your teeth whitened, keep up the cleaning and flossing every day and stay away from food and drink that is prone to stain your teeth.

Nails

Though we're not sure how they manage every day activities like driving or texting, Hollywood stars are pros at wearing the longest nails known to mankind.

Opting for false nails and gel polishes will give you a stable and indestructible look for a couple of weeks.

Not only are gels available at the salon, you can also buy a DIY nail art kit like the ones on offer by MoYou that have everything you need from a variety of gel polishes, stamps and image plates so you can design your own pieces of art on your fingertips.

Hair

There's a whole array of hair styles the celebs use, and we're not even sure which our favourites are. We love the braids that are a must when chilling at home or going to the gym, but red carpet chic is also a winner with so much variety.

Stepping back to the basics however, you'll need to start with deep hydrating conditioners and a strong shampoo to give you a sleek and shiny look.

Many movie stars have to look on point every day, so their hair stylists use a number of quirky and elegant styles - most start with a centre parting and this will also create a sophisticated and sassy look even when left down. 

The best thing about hair salons these days is that you can buy the products they use or head over to the supermarket to grab a few (hundred) bottles. The smell alone is glorious and the benefits of a good hair regime are endless.  

Pick up a stylist shampoo like Toni & Guy or Tresemme (an ultimate fave) and see the difference it makes to your hair. 

As for styles, Pinterest! Be strong; there's nothing those hair whizzes can do that you can't! With hairbrush in one hand and Kirby grips in the other, transform your weave into a glorious 'do ready for the catwalk. 

Make up 

Contour, strobing, smokey eye; is it all really over for the new 'no make-up makeup trend?' Absolutely not. Whilst the no make-up trend is beautiful, not one celeb could possibly say there's not a little contouring that goes into the look.

Using tiny amounts of rose gold highlighter like Topshop’s Chameleon Glow will perk up the skin, whilst a little powder will go a long way for smoothing out skin tone and leaving a matte finish. 

Simple 

... but you're unlikely to see any of them attending award ceremonies without getting their face on, so learning to strobe, eyeline flick and plenty more of your classic makeup tricks will help you out when persuading the squad you've just been scouted by Hollywood.

If you're heading in the classic Hollywood direction, opt for a porcelain fresh look with a strong coverage level so block out any unevenness and imperfections. You need a totally blank canvas to operate as the most iconically beautiful women of history!  With a strong focus on those brow peaks, and liner flicks, you're set to go - without forgetting that all important red lip pout that'll make the fans weak. 

Using a foundation in a paler colour will help to replicate Monroe's renowned look. And sponge tipped eyeliner is perfect when trying to smoothly finish the eyeliner flick that so many of us have been defeated by in the past.

Color in those eye brows to add a shape that sassily says 'excuse me?' without words. And you're good to go for a walk over some air vents with your dress wafting along the way... 

But if you're enchanted by the 21st Century styles of our favourite movie stars, strobing is the game they play. Offering an added sparkle with each and every camera flash, strobing has become a way to accentuate your stardom.                                                    

Using Benefit’s Watts Up! Highlighter, cover the main sparkle points on your cheekbones, Cupid's bow, nose, brows and forehead to glow like a magical star.

Opt for a light, yet sultry smokey eye with silvers and light greys, rather than the typical charcoal shades.

For the rest, it's really your choice: bronze, foundation, lip colour and eyeliners are your playing field; go forth make up warriors!

Clothes

For your red carpet appearance there are only two options: tight or flowy. There's really no in between. 

Your choices will reflect your body confidence and a tight dress, clinging in all the right places is bound to get people talking and wondering 'what is her exercise regime?!'

Celebrity style shops like My Bandage Dress or ASOS are the perfect way to find an outfit ideal for your body type without the eyewatering designer price tag. 

If you want to make a statement and stand out from the crowd like Beyoncé or JLow, you'll have to look for the flowiest attire you can find. These experts in red carpet fashion pull out all the stops with their designer dresses and everlasting trains. 

Once you've found your own favorite celeb style tricks, add them all together to create your Hollywood Movie look in minutes. All you need now is an event, an award and a Zac Efron to hold your handbag.
