If award-show spectating were a sport, we’d qualify as enthusiastic amateurs: always willing to sacrifice a Sunday night for the love of the game, but lacking any real training. That’s why this season we’re calling in the professionals: Us Weekly and their veteran editors. The magazine’s beauty experts picked all the products in this month’s Birchbox, from celebrity favorites like Dr. Brandt’s Pores No More Pore Refiner (a favorite of Gwyneth herself) to newcomers like Beauty Protector’s Protect & Oil.
All month, we’ll also be bringing you celebrity beauty secrets and red carpet intel from Us Weekly. For starters, Beauty Director Gwen Flamberg swung by our video shoot to guest star in the February Sneak Peek and to give editor Lorelei tips on posing like a celebrity. Since we couldn’t imagine an awards-show party without an accompanying glass of Pinot Noir, we also have a story on how wine actually improves your complexion. Plus, share a pic of your Birchbox for a chance to win a Party in a Box—everything you need to throw a Birchbox-awesome viewing party for you and 10 friends! Just tag #Birchbox and #PartyinaBox.
Let the show begin!
