can you be red carpet ready for $25?

by liza darwin

It's officially Awards Show Season. This not only means we have an excuse to hibernate and catch up on all the buzzed-about movies of the year, but it also signals one of our favorite guilty-pleasure pastimes: rating all of the actresses' outfits as they parade down the red carpet.

We might not be able to splurge on Amanda Seyfried's Armani gown or Carey Mulligan's Swarovski-encrusted Prada frock, but Stila's making it easy to achieve Oscar-worthy beauty with their mini-makeup collection.

They've teamed up with the mother of all award show programming, E!, on a series of palettes inspired by red carpet looks. The set includes different eyeshadows, lip glosses, and powders, along with instructions from celeb makeup artist Sarah Lucero on how to apply them.

At $25 each, this makes them a total no-brainer buy.... whether or not you're prepared to be scrutinized in the spotlight.
