"Wing it" Red carpet style

Winged eyeliner took the red carpet by storm this year. Jessica Chastain, Emma Stone, Zoe Saldana and J-lo all opted for this look. J-lo was definetly one of the more adventureous as she went for a double winged style. To get the basic feline flick like Emma Stones going on use MAC black fluidline in blacktrack with an angled brush like Kryolan Berlin no.10.

If your feeling a bit more adventurous but haven’t the steadiest hand and want to try a J-lo angle some sellotape in line with your top lash line to create the clean wing and then double up on top of it with a white eyeshadow.

The Oscar’s 2012 Make-up!:)

With so many beautiful gowns, make-up and hairstyles on the night of the 84th Annual Academy Awards it’s hard to choose who looked the most radiant but I think Penelope Cruz hit every nail on the head. Her exquisite dress was of course Armani Prive. Her hair was inspired by 1950’s Hollywood starlet Grace Kelly and her make-up a sultry smokey eye. To get her stunning make-up look use the following for the eyes

  • Color Design 5 Pan Palette in Gris Fatale by Lancome.
  • Black kohl pencil to line the eyes.
  • Giorgio Armani Eyes to kill to create that false lash effect.

For the skin use your regular foundation and sculpt the cheekbones slightly then use Lancome Blush Subtil in Rose Romantique on the apples of the cheeks. The lips are extremely natural with a slight rose tint. Use Lancome Le lipstique lip colouring stick in bronzelle to line the lips very slightly and then Lancome rouge in love lip colour in shade Delicate lace.
