OSCARS INSPIRED MAKEUP LOOK
Updated: Jul 15
Who hasn’t waited all year round for the Oscar season to start and the celebrities to walk down the red carpet in their glorious attire and splendid makeup?
The Oscars makeup is a part of the story, and if this fails, then the celebrity is probably failed too at the event. The best part about the story is that how strongly and individually it separates you from the other hundred celebrities. Reflecting a natural and flawless beauty, Oscars makeup is not just about the face of the artist. The story extends well beyond that. It’s all about the right product you use, the correct texture and the natural blending.
After keeping like a hundred things under your close inspection, the makeup artist ensures work of art that is not only living and heart-throbbing, but it also proves to give you a perfect look both on and off camera. The makeup is not static and looks nothing like the Instagram makeup; instead, it is as moving as the fast-paced fashion industry itself. You would probably be wondering why you would need Oscars makeup for yourself. Well, one reason being that Oscars makeup is not only limited to celebrities. It’s all about disclosing your unique facial features and highlighting them so if you haven’t treated yourself like a celebrity then it’s high time you should. AND THE OSCAR GOES TO I'd like to introduce you the Oscars inspired makeup look that I've done for gorgeous Olya Zuks. I was wondering to create a glam gold look, with golden glowing skin, eyeshadow, gown and even golden looking hair.
It's so important not to miss the step of skin preparation. To moisturize face before putting any product on it I've used Embryolisse Lait Creme. This creamy lotion is a primer, moisturizer, and a makeup remover. So, it's not necessary to apply any other primers after that but I put Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow on top of the moisturizer to make the skin glow.
I applied Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Stick Foundation all over the skin. It covers well and doesn't feel and look heavy. The coverage is easy to build and it doesn't get creasy or settle in weird places. Then I put Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer under eye area using a concealer brush. It is a light coverage concealer and it can be built up to medium coverage and it layers incredibly well. Tom Ford Translucent Finishing Powder set makeup perfectly with a sheer, shine-free finish.
To keep eyeshadow in place for hours I patted Smashbox 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer over the lid. I have been using this primer for past 4 years, and this is still one of my favorite ones. With creamy and silky formula, it's easy to apply and you just need a small amount of it.
I drew the line along the top lash line using Armani Eyes to Kill Waterproof Eyeliner and blended it lightly to the outer corner to add slight cat-eye effect. This pencil is very smooth and stays on without smudging for more than 16 hours.
My favorite rich gold shade is Urban Decay Half Baked Eyeshadow. It has beige undertones and a metallic finish. The texture is divine, they apply wonderfully and last so long even with no primer. For brows I chose Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Powder Duo in Taupe in order to create a natural brow. Before the mascara I refreshed skin with Mac Fix Plus water mist. And then completed the eye make up with mascara for full volume.
No Oscars makeup is complete without lush and thick lashes. I've chosen Huda Beauty Mink Collection made of premium mink fur, in Marilyn. This is long 0.5 to 0.7in lashes with medium volume.
I used Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette to finish makeup and brushed this powder all over the face for a flawless looking skin and sun kissed glow. Final touch with Marc Jacobs Lip Creme and that's it - her makeup is ready for a Red Carpet!
