Behind the Beauty At the GBK Oscar Lounge

Two steps into the GBK Oscar lounge and suddenly you’re in a world of sparkle and luxury. From the beautiful gold backdrops, to the giant black and metallic Oscar cake, this was the place to be the day before the Oscars. More importantly, it was the place to discover amazing beauty products used by celebs.



Hollywood’s elite spend hours getting ready for a big event and they need to make sure their look can last. A great way to achieve a dewy face all day is with a misting spray. MayaWater was featured at this year’s GBK Oscar lounge. The product, made from Norwegian water, allows the skin to absorb water anytime, even atop makeup. Just spritz one of the four facial mists on your face whenever you need to be revitalized and you’re good to go. The mineral water in the can cleanses and wakes up your skin to keep it looking fresh.

We’ve all been told to eat more fruits and vegetables,  and now there are beauty products that can give your skin the same nutrients and benefits. One of these beauty lines is KiwiFox, which uses one of nature’s most remarkable fruits, the kiwi, as its main ingredient. Aside from being delicious, the kiwifruit is filled with Vitamin C, E, and A, as well as potassium an beta-carotene. Using products that are kiwi based can protect your skin from free radicals. It also helps in removing wrinkles. KiwiFox has an amazing dark circle remover, as well as an age-defying moisturizer, celulite cream and FoxyLash, one of Hollywood’s favorite lash growth serums.

Vani-T, a beautiful glow and organic cosmetic line, was also sharing secrets of the stars at the GBK lounge. Tania Walsh, Vani-T’s creator, spent years working in the beauty industry and realized there were too many chemicals in the products she was around. She began her line of eco-glamour products in 2003 with this in mind. The entire line of cosmetics, teeth-whitening gloss, sunless tanning lotion and everyone’s favorite, bronzing custard, are organic and not tested on animals. Vani-T even has a tanning eraser which can be used to help scrub your sunless tan when you’re ready to remove it. These products from South Australia have been used by Camerona Diaz, Jennifer Aniston, Lady Gaga, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kim Kardashian.
