There are so many celebrities from various cultures and aspects of life to look up to. You may find strong appeal from a particular celebrity from the world of sports, music or the movies. Once you get hooked on a particular celebrity’s fashion sense, talent or lifestyle, you might try as much as possible to dress like them, style your hair like theirs, or even look like them by doing workouts to shape your body to resemble your celebrity idol. However, these celebrities have the resources to afford a particular lifestyle. Whether you have the funds or not, there are simple ways to live like your favourite celebrity without spending much.

Get a celebrity makeover

Celebrities hire professionals who assist them with getting their branding just right. The branding style differs from one celebrity to the next. For example, some may focus on looks, such as getting specific haircuts, accessories, makeup, and clothing styles. There are many ways to learn from celebrities in this regard. You may go through their social media accounts to assess the trends they always associate themselves with. These celebrities mostly take advice from professionals on how to look and appear suitable. The catch here is that you get to learn from a professional stylist without paying for their expert opinion. Your focus, however, should be on their social media pages, as you can easily connect with celebrities on these platforms. 

Drive like a celebrity for less

Whenever the topic of celebrities becomes a subject for discussion, their expensive luxurious cars take centre stage. Several celebrities drive luxury cars like Bentleys, Maseratis, and Lamborghinis. However, the real catch with these cars is the customised private number plates. So if you can’t afford a top of the range brand new vehicle, why not get your own private number plate and put it on a more affordable used car such as a Toyota Prius which has recently been trending with celebs such as Ryan Gosling, America Ferrera, and Brad Pitt. If you do have some extra funds to spare, you can shop online for many used luxury cars. The goal is to look like your favourite celeb but at a lesser cost.

Eat healthier while you pay less

In days past, celebrities were always under the criticism of society because of how they consumed unhealthy junk. Many fans in the past have fallen victim to the unhealthy lifestyle of celebs and have fallen sick. However, the narrative is changing now. Celebrities take extra pride in looking healthier and much younger than their age. They eat from the most expensive restaurants and the choicest of foods. Others go the extra mile to employ renowned chefs to cook private meals for them. If you’re on a budget, there may be ways you can rub shoulders with your favourite celeb without spending much on food at fancy restaurants. 

You can get most of the groceries used to prepare healthy meals at lavish restaurants from the local grocery store. That said, the huddle to cross will be the preparation of the meal, especially if you are not acquainted with cooking. The way out can be visiting the YouTube channels of some of the world’s renowned chefs. The beauty here is, you get to learn from more than one master in the catering fraternity. You can now eat like a celebrity and stay healthy but at a much lesser cost.

Another way to spend less to look like your favourite celebrity is by signing up to be a model at a celebrity salon or beauty spa. Many young talents at these don’t use models for training sessions supervised by professionals. You may not be able to pay for these professional stylists to style you. But you will be able to learn a thing or two or even turn up at events looking like your favourite celeb but at a cheaper cost.

Be a smart shopper

Celebrities are known widely for their high sense of fashion. Many brands collaborate with celebrities to market their products and services. Brands like Adidas, Nike, and Puma may target established sportsmen like Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Lionel Messi to market their products as ambassadors. Sometimes, these new products may cost much more than you may want to spend on a shoe or sunglasses. 

However, you can get the same products at a much lesser cost from online shopping sites like Amazon and Alibaba Express. Sometimes, you may consider opting for knock-offs from one celebrity you may not know of. The ideal situation is to spend less on shoes, makeup, sunglasses, sweatshirts, and watches but still rock them like your favourite celebrity.

There is utterly nothing wrong with wanting to look and live like a celebrity. However, celebrity lifestyle comes with celebrity expenses which may sometimes be way too expensive. You may live like a celebrity, but you need to be innovative, and the tips mentioned here should help.
