As some of you know, this weekend, I’m in Washington DC taking over The Four Season’s Hotel with my good friend and fellow blogger, Lara from Pretty Connected to host our #PrettyGlamazonOscars Party! (Details HERE.)

The theme of the weekend is how to get red carpet ready! So in addition to Sunday’s event, we’re hosting a Twitter party from 5-6pm on with celebrity makeup artist Carl Ray, whose impressive list of clients include First Lady Michelle Obama, Scandal’s Kerry Washington, Homeland’s Claire Danes, Gabrielle Union,  Sarah Ferguson (Duchess of York), Queen Noor, Princess Hussein, Sir Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Tony Danza, Kevin Kline, President Bill Clinton and Oscar winning actress Natalie Portman. I mean, who better to demo and talk about getting red carpet ready than with him?!

Here’s a sneak peek of some of the products we will be featuring. Before the makeup, the hair, and even prior to the nails, it’s important to start with a good foundation! I’m taking about a close shave, a hydrating body wash, and an I-don’t-mess-around deodorant that’s going to keep you dry and sweat free all night long! And the winner is . . . I mean, our picks are:

Gillette Venus & Olay Razor – These two power houses, Gillette and Olay go together like peanut butter and jelly. We love the brands apart but together they are exceptional! Great for travel, this all in one razor requires no additional shaving cream. The Olay Moisture Bars help lock in moisture and the Venus five blades shave you close, creating a razor that gently exfoliates skin leaving your legs super smooth and ready to show off those stems!

Olay Sensitive Body Wash – Skip the dyes and fragrance chemicals and opt for a gentler body wash that’s packed with long lasting moisture. Each bottle of Olay Sensitive Body Wash contains a jar of Olay moisturizers to relieve dry skin, delivering all-day soft and silky touch-me skin.

Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant Invisible Solid – When it comes to expensive gowns, and intense lighting, (especially with LA temperatures) you need a deodorant that is going to keep you dry, fresh and stays off your clothes! And because no one purchases a special deodorant just for special occasions (this isn’t perfume), opt for one that will have you feeling 100% confident and fresh on and off the red carpet. Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant Invisible Solid contains strong odor and wetness protection that uses odor-neutralizing molecules to trap odor, and replace it with a fresh scent. Also available in Clear Gel and Smooth Solid.

Throughout the weekend, leading up the event Lara (@prettyconnected) and I (@GlamazonDiaries) will be using the hashtag #PrettyGlamaonOscars and tweeting and instagraming more of our must-have products. We’re also doing $1500 worth of giveaways including the above products listed so be sure to tune in!
