Night at the W Giveaway: Enter to win Crest, Olay, Pantene & CoverGirl products

Night at the W

On Thursday, January 10th, every Walgreens® store in the U.S. will host “Night at the W™,” a free, beauty-themed event from 4:00 – 9:00 pm. Billed as the official after-party of the People’s Choice Awards, you are invited to talk with your local Walgreens Beauty Advisor on how to get your own glamorous, new look for the New Year and have a chance to win fabulous prizes. If you’re able to attend, you’ll discover many simple ways to elevate your look and get “red carpet ready” for a big night out.

According to Fashion Consultant/”Godfather of Style,” Tim Gunn: you don’t have to spend a fortune to get your own “red carpet ready” look. On behalf of Walgreens, Tim offers the following great tips and tricks:

  • Get a Camera-Ready Smile: A bright white smile is absolutely necessary whether you’re walking the red carpet or the runway. A simple tip I tell all the runway models is use something like a Crest Whitestrips. There’s this 2 hour treatment you can put on when you are getting ready.
  • Get Ready for Your Close-Up: When it comes to facial hair removal, there’s nothing to be ashamed of, and there’s everything to gain. Olay has something new that is perfect for this and because it’s from Olay you know your skin will look fabulous!
  • Every day is a new chance for you to “walk the runway,” so I like to encourage women to try new things whether it be a new lipstick or nail color.
  • Some of the most stunning looks I have seen lately are topped off with healthy-thick hair. Not every woman has thick hair and as women age their hair tends to thin. There is a new hair thickening product on the market from Pantene that will give you that gorgeous hair.
  • To keep your skin glowing, it is important to stay hydrated by using a good moisturizer and drinking lots of water. And you can make your features pop with the right makeup and brightest smile.

    I so rarely have a big night out, so it’s hard to think what I do! The last big event was a wedding, and so I de-fuzz my face :/, color my hair, put on concealer under my foundation, actually use eyeshadow, get my hair just perfect, wear my nicest dress and wear heels (I’m normally a flats kind of girl!). I might even put on lipstick! (gasp!)

    Laura says

    Big Night Out? Is a trip to the roller skating rink included in that?
    Now if it was a real fancy thing — I’d buy a nice outfit a few days before — put it on the night of and then decide I look like a whale in it — take it off and put on the black slacks and black top and black sweater that at least make me look like a classy whale — a little makeup — a little silver necklace and watch and High clunky heels ‘cuz a classy whale tettering around in spiked heels — ick!

  45. 107

    Deborah says

    The perfect night out starts with two great people making plans. Then enjoying that time they have together.

  46. 108

    sandy says

    If I’m planning a big night out, then I need at least 2 hours to get ready. I take a nice long shower, paint my nails, while my hair is air drying. I plug in the hot rollers and apply make-up as the last step. Wa la!

  47. 111

    Renee (Kristen) says

    I shower and do a fresh shave, apply make-up, put on my jewelry and pick an outfit matched with a pair of sexy heels. :)

    For a great night out I like to put my hair in hot rollers for a little different look then my day to day look. And big eye makeup and the perfect lip popping lip color.

  51. 130

    Amber says

    The process really begins in the AM. 1st thing is get everything taken care of you needed to get done like errands and such. A nap is next followed by music on while showering, getting dressed and makeup.

  52. 135

    Jennie says

    What I can remember, been so long with four kids is definitely curling hair, hair spray, makeup and push up bra!!! 😉

  53. 136

    Jen P. says

    I put on the biggest grin I can – going out means the kids are at grandma’s and I don’t have to worry about being home by a certain time or being mom. I get to relax and have date night…….such a rare event…..
