Diva it up like Demi with these gorgeous makeup palettes!

We all know that red carpet events are like most women’s versions of major sporting events and like our sports-loving counterparts, we’ll spend days doing a play-by-play of the coverage, the hits and misses and spend an inordinate amount of time trying to recreate the best parts. When it comes to beauty, some companies have created makeup palettes and compacts that look just as glamorous as the stars that inspire them. Ready to get your hands on some red carpet makeup? Let’s check it out:

LORAC, the cosmetics line of celebrity makeup artist Carol Shaw and a  favorite of red carpet darlings like Nicole Kidman and Demi Moore, has created the Rock the Red Carpet Collection, a group of essentials hand-picked by the makeup artist herself. The limited-edition set features miniature versions of her Shine Liquid Lipstics, a mini TANtalizer baked bronzer, and a bronzed bombshell eye shadow trio, all in a fabulous purple croc makeup bag for a mere $25.  Perfect for getting evening ready at your desk or on the go.

Those of you who want more of a natural look with a bit of va-va-va-voom should get in on this Urban Decay Naked Palette, featuring a range of shades from a elegant champagne through a tough-girl gunmetal. It comes two of their award-winning 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils (black and a rich brown) and a travel-sized portion of their stay-put Eyeshadow Primer Potion, all in a sleek chocolate brown velvet box complete with a mirror. Go from day to night with one kit!

Makeup legend Bobbi Brown, a favorite of everyone from designer Tory Burch to Oprah Winfrey, has created the Night Palette, four incredibly wearable shades that work together seamlessly. Here’s an added tip: you can add clear lip gloss to the blush shade and create a beautiful colored lip without adding too many products. This is the ultimate clutch-approved nighttime kit.

Finally, if the power red lip is your thing, there’s only one place to go: the Stila Paint Your Pout Red Talking Palette, which contains three vibrant reds, a clear gloss, a brush and – wait for it – a talking voice that walks you through how to create the perfect red lip step by step. It’s like having one of their makeup artists sitting in your living room.

Feel free to pick some of these up for your next big night on the town. You never know when your own personal paparazzi might be watching.

Available exclusively at, LORAC’s ROCK THE RED CARPET COLLECTION contains this season’s must-have beauty essentials hand-picked from Celebrity Makeup Artist, Carol Shaw.  This limited-edition set features seven products all tucked into a chic makeup bag for ONLY $25 (with a $100 value!) and includes:
5 Mini Couture Shine Liquid Lipsticks in Haute, Couture, Glam, Sheer Luxe and Lavish
