Ann Merin’s Red Carpet To-Do List

TLC style goddess Ann Merin has foolproof ways to avoid red carpet boo-boos. She is a firm believer that practice makes perfect.

“You need to rehearse your look. Don’t figure it out the night of. You need to figure it out days before,” the host of TLC’s Wedding Day Makeovers told in an exclusive interview.

Another tip she swears by is long-staying lipstick. “Always use lip stain that stays because otherwise it’s just gonna get kissed right off.”

Finally, she advises red carpet guests to get photographed in their assembled look before heading out. “Just to see if there’s something a little bit off.  You’ll see in the picture more than you’ll see it in the mirror,” the expert says.
