The Best Makeup Looks – The Oscars 2012
The stars were out once again on the red carpet for the 2012 Oscars. While everyone was ohhhing and ahhhhing over the stunning gowns, I was looking out for hair and makeup styles. US Magazine weighed in on the best looks and also dished from the stars own makeup artists how they achieved the look for the night. From classic, to modern, to glamor, the following looks could be easily translated to bridal beauty.
#1 Jennifer Lopez “The star’s bombshell hair and makeup was inspired by the late 1960s. Hairstylist Lorenzo Martin created a dramatic high chignon, while makeup artist Mary Phillips went with winged liner and bronzed skin.”
#2 “When I saw the dress, something about that gorgeous color just reminded me of a flower,” celebrity makeup artist Angelina Levin told Us of her inspiration for the actress’ look. To get the perfect purpley-pink lip color, Levin mixed two shades of Chanel Rouge Coco Lip Colour: Paradis and Destineé.”
#3 Stacy Keibler “She wanted to do something modern and classic,” Couture Colour hairstylist Peter Savic told Us of Keibler’s side-swept waves, which were anchored by a sleek roll in the back. Makeup artist Melanie Ingelsis complemented the ‘do with smoldering eyes and nude lips.”
#4 Jessica Chastain “To give The Help star a natural glow, makeup artist Mai Quynh applied mark Just Pinched Instant Blush Tint in Peachy topped with mark Good Glowing Custom Pick Powder Blush in Cameo Glo. On her eyes, she used a mix of gold and copper shadows and liner for a sexy, cat-eye effect. “I wanted to have a little bit of a retro vibe,” Suave Professionals hairstylist Jenny Cho told Usof the wavy half-up style, which featured a sexy bump at the crown.”
#5 Natalie Portman “The dress was amazing, so the inspiration for Natalie’s look was 1950’s old Hollywood glamour,” makeup artist Eileen Kastner-Delago said. To get the perfect lip color, she used Dior Rouge Dior in Rouge Favori and Dior Addict Ultra-Glossin Pink Trench.”
