The Oscars… Beautified

Going through the pictures that recap the red carpet appearances, we all notice the dresses. The daring, glamorous, and classic from all of the most coveted designers. But the question piercing my mind isn’t “who are they wearing?” it’s more about the beauty… “Why this beauty look for the evening, and how can we (non-celebs) incorporate it into our special events we attend?”

Barely there makeup was seen on so many celebs in attendance, like Charlize Theron and Anne Hathaway below. The goal is a completely natural look that just highlights and perfects natural features. It creates a youthful and fresh appearance. Add a gentle lip color, like a natural nude pink, to complete the look! Want to learn how to achieve this look? Check out my tutorial here

Soft smokey eye… This is a subtle enhancement to the eyes, with out going all the way to the black smokey eye. Soft smokey eyes are fierce and chic, unlike the complete opposite that we see overdone on The Jersey Shore . Be soft and elegant, yet simply seductive, like Zoe Saldana and Amanda Seyfried, by rocking this look.



Gleaming bombshells turn heads with natural glow. Like Maria Menunos and Stacy Keibler with just a dash of a glowing highlight along the cheeks, brow bone, nose, and chin. This is one of my favorite highlighters to achieve this look here! Achieve this rich look by adding a softly defined & shimmery eye.



Oh that classic red! A classic red lip is always a greatly choice for special events. Look stunning and timeless by finding the perfect shade of red like Jessica Chastain and Giuliana Rancic did below and pairing it with plush lashes. #InstaGlamour!
