year ago

Celebrity stylists are known to have a bag of tricks up their sleeves when it comes to making their clients look flawless. From wearing shoes one size too big to lying down in the car while traveling, they have plenty of tips that can make anyone look like a superstar. In this article, we’ll take a look at 11 easy tricks that celebrity stylists recommend to achieve that celebrity look.

1. Shoes

Celebrities often wear shoes one size bigger to avoid cuts or blisters. This trick can also make your feet look smaller, giving you a more proportional appearance.

2. Poses


After years of posing in front of cameras, celebrities know their most flattering angles and poses. From tilting their head to demonstrating their curves, knowing your best angles can make a huge difference in photos.

3. No wrinkles

To prevent wrinkles in complex dresses, celebrities lie down in the car while traveling to the event. This may not be the most comfortable way to travel, but it’s effective in keeping your dress wrinkle-free.

4. Comfortable sneakers

Standing for hours on end can be tiring and painful, so wearing comfortable sneakers can be a lifesaver. Take a cue from actresses like Hailee Steinfeld and Sally Field, who wore sneakers to the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

5. Zippers

If a zipper gets stuck, simply rub a bar of soap onto the problematic area, and the zipper will move. This is a quick fix that can save you from a fashion emergency.

6. Static cling


Static electricity can be a nuisance, but hair spray can help. Spray the inside of your clothes with hair spray or touch the outfit with wet hands to reduce static cling. You can also sprinkle baby powder on your skin to prevent static cling.

7. Thicker hair

Applying eyeshadow to your hairline or part can make your hair look thicker. Choose a matte eyeshadow that matches your hair color and apply it with a makeup brush.

8. Smile with your eyes

A genuine smile involves more than just your mouth. Celebrities know how to smile with their eyes, giving their smile a more sincere and authentic look. Slightly squinting your eyes can create a crescent shape that can make a big difference.

9. Tape for cleavage

Low-neckline or strapless clothes can be tricky, but tape can help keep everything in place. Apply breast lift tape to your skin to create a gravity-defying cleavage.

10. Clothes with the right cut

Wear clothes with the right cut to visually change the proportions of your body, just like celebrities do. Even Marilyn Monroe used to wear a padded bra that made her chest look bigger.

11. Shapewear

Shapewear is a popular choice among celebrities to help smooth out their silhouette and can be easily worn under clothes.
