There were two very distinct looks on this year’s Oscars Red Carpet.
Lets check them out.
Sandra Bullock was striking and exquisite
in homage to old Hollywood
created by makeup artist Angela Levin, using Chanel.
The base she used was Vitalumier, eyes in the limited edition Les Regards palette
and those stunning lips in Chanel Rouge Coco lip color in Paris.
I loved the structured brow offsetting a simpler, less dramatic eye.
Levin tied the look together with one of her signature tricks,
using a dab of the lip color on the cheek.
Charlize Theron and Cameron Diaz were both staggeringly beautiful in this look.
The other big look for the night was very neutral toned,
yet stunning and elegent.
Most of the girls wore variations on this.
Nothing new – but a good lesson here.
Scaled back, beautiful makeup sets off the facial features,
and compliments the dress like no other.
I love Jennifer Lopez, and her innate sense of style.
Makeup artist Matthew Vanleeuween created her look using products from Nars.
He wanted an “ethereal, movie star look”, and totally achieved it!
Orgasm Illuminator, to lift the cheekbones, then rounded them out by pairing Enchanted Cream Blush (new for summer 2010) and Desire Blush.
On the eyes he used D Gorgeous single eyeshadow and Brousse duo eyeshadow,
and lashes galore.
He finished the look off with Cruising lipstick and Sweet Dreams lipgloss.
All products by Nars.
Other who were just stunning in this paired down yet sensational look include
Demi Moore, Kate Winslet, Rachel McAdams, Elizabeth Banks, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Miley Cyrus.
Each in their own variation on the theme, each in their own color palette, but each just looking divine.
I have to add this one in too.
Because she is one of my absolute favorites.
And she looked so gorgeous and fun.
And I completely LOVE her hair.
